It can be hard to choose a good online slot to play. There are hundreds of them, and more are being created seemingly every day – it can become time consuming to simply choose a game, so much so that it can even be off putting and daunting, and even if you do want to wade through the many, many different options, you might then run out of time to actually get any meaningful gameplay out of them. Knowing a little more about certain games in advance can help you make that all important decision, and give you more time to play. Read on to discover more about the Lucky Firecracker slot at Diamond Jackpots, and decide whether it’s the right game for you.
Lucky Firecracker is made by Microgaming, and its main theme is the Chinese New Year and the celebrations that go along with it. There are five reels to play with, and the symbols are all either Chinese themed, celebratory, or a combination of both. They include exploding fireworks, paper lanterns, traditional Chinese letters and symbols, and even sparklers.
What marks this game out as different is that there are 243 ways to win. So it’s not only packed with excitement and flare thanks to the theme and design, but it also offers plenty of scope for those looking to win too. Or you might want to try out the demo mode first, and many online casinos will offer this to you so that you can get to grips with how Lucky Firecracker works and what the odds are of winning well.
The first thing to do when starting to play Lucky Firecracker slots is to adjust your bet. Ensure you are betting with an amount you’re comfortable with, and that if you were to lose all of it you wouldn’t miss it – this is a paramount concern when you are playing any kind of slot game, or any kind of online gambling; only play with what you can afford to lose.
To pick the amount you want to bet with, click on ‘bet’ and then use the plus or minus symbols to increase or decrease the amount of your bet. This will range from 0.01 to 1, as well as the number of coins you want to play with. When you are ready, click on spin and the game will start.
Alternatively, you can hit the auto play button; this means that the game will continue to play uninterrupted for a pre-set number of spins rather than you having to click on spin each time. There is no particular benefit to this, it’s really down to personal preference.
There are plenty of wilds to come across in Lucky Firecracker. They appear on reels two and four, and they works as a substitute for every other symbol except for the scatter symbol – when you see three or more scatters on the reels you are playing you will receive 15 free spins, and all wins will be multiplied by three.
Something interesting about Lucky Firecracker is that there is also a ‘gamble’ feature for those who really like to try their luck (and since the game is called Lucky Firecracker, why not?). Pressing the gamble button starts a bonus game during which you need to guess whether a card (placed face down) is red or black. If you guess right, your winnings could double.
