It is almost a guarantee that one in every five slots are animal themed, and this latest release from Cryptologic fits the mould perfectly. Based around the animals that creep around during nightfall this 25-pay line creation is a relatively entertaining game to get stuck into. As you can expect from this established team the design of the game is second to none, boasting rich looking graphics, impressive animations and decent sound effects to top it all off. The nature theme can be seen throughout the game, with plenty of trees and animals featuring inside the reels and alongside the usual honey jars, a raccoon, tent, Swiss army knife, fishing rod, jackboots and bug spray: so yes there is definitely a sense of the great outdoors here.
Fire Flies stated jackpot is 5000 coins, which is relatively reasonable considering the light hearted theme of the game. The notable absence from Fire Flies is bonus round, which is relatively surprising considering most modern day video slots offer a such a big range.
Bonus Rounds and Features
the lack of a bonus round really does retract from the excitement of spinning Fire Flies, though don’t despair just yet, there are still one or two goodies to take advantage of. First up is the games wild which is represented the easily recognisable wooden logo and as always it substitutes for all other symbols within the game. The second to mention is the bonus scatter symbol, and spinning these on reels 1 and 5 will start the lucrative round. Seven free spins are awarded as standard and players can look forward to a 7x multiplier also. In addition to this all wilds hit within the free spins round become stacked, allowing for a lot more winning opportunities.
Free spins is basically your lot here, but with an entertaining theme and a respectable top prize to go for, I wouldn’t count Fire Flies out just yet.
