All the luck of the Chinese
In traditional Chinese culture, firecrackers were used to scare away evil spirits. With their rat-tat-tat noise, which can become quite deafening with enough firecrackers, the evil spirits would flee the house and never return. It all stems from the legend of Nian the monster who would come out to eat people and destroy their homes on the Chinese New Year’s Eve. But since then, firecrackers have become more associated with luck. Their red paper covering adds to this good fortune, so let’s see if you can set off some firecrackers in this game.
The game is mostly made up of the usual playing card face symbols with just a smattering of Chinese symbols. There are the golden coins, the peaches and the hand chimes alongside the hand drum and lanterns. And it’s these icons that you will want to land to make combinations. However, there are plenty of bonus symbols to look out for besides these, and you can also check out our other pokies for more opportunities to win.
The envelopes written over in Chinese characters are the special ‘fortunes’ and the scatters and you’ll need to collect these to get ahead. While you can’t actually open these to read what’s inside, we can guess that it’s mostly prophecies about money. Land three of these scatters to trigger the Mega Pay feature. This feature gives players 15 free spins and adds a sixth reel to the game. This doubles your chances of making a winning combination and offers you the chance to collect red envelopes during the free spins, which will open up yet more reels.
Once you start collecting the red envelopes, you’ll soon start to see the value and perhaps the point of the entire game. Find 9 to 13 red envelopes and you’ll spin three sets of reels. In addition, all symbols on the last reel will turn wild. Landing 14 to 29 red envelopes will take you up to the next level. These spins play out on four sets of reels with wilds dropping into both the fourth and fifth reel. And if you manage to land 30 or more red envelopes you’ll be on four reels again, but this time reels three, four and five will all go wild.
Aim for the sky
With this red envelope system, this game quickly turns from a 25 payline game into a 100 payline game and you don’t have to pay for the extra chances. To make up for this, Aristocrat's Fortune Firecracker multiplies the line bet by 30x rather than 25x. But with the stakes set on the paylines, players can spin with confidence as the chance of landing a combination and multiplier on every spin is huge!
