Fireworks Megaways: Slot Overview

Fireworks have been kicking around for hundreds of years, having first shown up in the Song Dynasty (960 to 1279) in China, according to Wikipedia, and are a staple at celebrations across the globe these days. There is something mesmerising about clouds of blossoming sparks and loud cracking sounds that draw in the eye and elicit oohs and aahs from crowds of onlookers. Big Time Gaming will no doubt be hoping the inherent allure of these exploding devices will work their magic on gamblers for the online slot Fireworks Megaways. As well as popping little pixelated explosions, Fireworks Megaways posts some massive numbers and one or two neat mechanical tricks to accompany them.

The fireworks in Fireworks Megaways aren't going off at a major event like, dunno, the Olympics, but in what appears to be somebody's back garden. Perhaps it's a birthday party, an anniversary, or a boisterous barbecue. Players can pick the scenario that most tickles their fancy. Adding to the low-key party vibes are balloons and a portable stereo parked up by the garden shed. The high-energy dance tune feels a little out of place in some ways, yet it also adds to the festive mood, so on we go. All in all, it's got a strong Extra Chilli feel to it, both in terms of gameplay and design.

Fireworks Megaways slot - base game

Fireworks Megaways is played on a Megaways game grid made up of 6 reels, plus a 4-position Extra Reel beneath it. When combined, it is possible to have up to 117,649 ways to win, though this number is dependent on the number of symbols that hit the main reels. A highly volatile gambling mechanism, Fireworks Megaways has a default RTP of 96.44% when betting 20 c to $/€12 per spin or when using the bonus buy.

All regular winning symbols create a Reaction where they are removed from the reels and replaced by symbols dropping down on the main reels or from the side on the Extra Reel. Reactions continue like this until no win appears. The regular paying symbols are 9 through A card royal lows, then green, blue, red, and purple firework high pays. Landing 6 matching card ranks in a winning way pays 0.25 to 0.4 times the stake, up to 0.6 to 10 times the bet for the high pays. Wilds can find their way onto the board in various ways, though only from the Firework Wild Bonus. No matter how they arrive, wilds are able to substitute for any regular paying symbol.

Fireworks Megaways: Slot Features

That common twin of Megaways, Reactions, pop up in Fireworks Megaways, as do 4 firework symbol linked modifiers, free spins with a growable win multiplier, and various alt methods for reaching the free spins round.

Firework Wild Bonus

On each spin and Reaction, one of the positions on the Extra Reel is randomly selected to be lit. If a Purple, Red, Blue, or Green Firework is in the lit position, it transforms into a wild. In addition, these fireworks trigger a modifier:

  • Purple Firework Bonus – all symbols on the reel above become wild.
  • Red Firework Bonus – up to 4 extra wilds are added to the reels.
  • Blue Firework Bonus – the wild displays a multiplier of up to x25.

Free Spins

Scatter symbols land on the leftmost and rightmost reel. Hitting 2 scatters awards 12 free spins, plus an extra 4 free spins are awarded for each scatter beyond the second. Free spins have a multiplier that begins at x1 and increases with each Firework Wild Bonus. During each free spin and Reaction, 2 of the 4 Extra Reel positions are randomly selected to be lit. Both lit positions can trigger a Firework Bonus Feature. Landing 2 scatters awards +4 free spins, plus 4 more for each scatter beyond the second.

Win Exchange

When winning 100x the stake or more, players have the option of exchanging 100x the bet for 12 free spins. When winning between 25 and 100 times the bet, players can gamble the amount for the chance to win 12 free spins. Or it is possible to buy 12 free spins for 100x the bet from the Bonus Buy.

Fireworks Megaways: Slot Verdict

Fireworks Megaways was like going to a firework display, which began pretty so-so: a few crackers went off here, a bit of a banging popping over there, nothing to get too overly wild about on socials. However, it did heat up as the session progressed, and when factoring in the monstrous winning potential, it is a game punching in one of the higher-weight divisions. Perhaps the backyard setting, which has been cosily rendered, was so mundane it didn't make a piercing initial impact, or possibly because of the fact it looks and feels so similar to Extra Chilli. But, as mentioned, Fireworks Megaways improved as time passed, as parties tend to do when more guests arrive, and free-flowing beverages are lubricating human interactions.

One plus was that the Firework Wild Bonuses triggered more often than first suspected they would. Not every spin launched rockets into the air and even triggering a Firework Wild Bonus doesn't guarantee a massive shower of sparks. The frequency and effects did help keep the party going, though. Double (or more) goes for the free spins round, too, since you get twice as many lit positions on each spin, plus a multiplier which rises each time a Firework Wild Bonus ignites.

The coup de grace, though, was inspecting the fine print on the game sheet to discover winning potential of 12,800x in the base game and 150,335x overall. Had to blink a couple of times to make sure those numbers were written right. There was a nagging doubt over how soon, if ever, we'll see that amount be achieved by some lucky partygoer. But there it is in writing, and while Fireworks Megaways isn't one of Big Time Gaming's superstars (happy to be proved wrong), it's got enough positives going for it to light a sparkly fuse.

Great

Fireworks Megaways didn’t come across as a BTG superstar, but it’s got everything needed to be considered a substantial game.
