Visually, the game reminds you of a typical fairy tale forest where the storylines usually have a happy ending. The colour palette is kept in dark blue with a purple hue while pink flowers and a game window held by mystical tree branches lighten up the scene. The reels are populated by brightly coloured flora symbols and beautifully crafted firefly icons.
Open the game to find gleaming crystals shaped as card suits at the low end of the paytable, awarding 1.5x to 3x your stake for a single five of a kind. They are followed by four mysterious flora symbols in mainly purple, pink, blue and orange colours. Hit five on a line to win five to 30x your bet.
Wilds are three differently coloured fireflies, substituting for all regular symbols and paying as well 30x your bet for a 5OAK. There can be only one scatter at a time on the reels, represented by a full moon.
The maximum win on a single pay line peaks at a staggering 7,290 times your bet plus change. And the good news is, you can hit it in the base game and free spins whereas it will be easier to achieve the feat in the latter. The focus at all times will be on the Multiplier Firefly Wilds. They appear in three colours, each indicating a different multiplier – green is the standard wild, yellow fireflies multiply a win by x2 and pink fireflies by x3. However, they will multiply a win only if they are part of the combo. Landing five x3 Multiplier Wilds on a pay line will lead to an x243 multiplier and the aforementioned maximum win. The chance to hit it is roughly 1:43.5 million spins.
The main event on the game are the Firefly Frenzy Free Spins, which can trigger every time a single moon scatter lands on any reel in a spin. Fireflies will swarm out and will trigger eight free spins if one lands on the scatter.
During the feature, the firefly that triggered the free spins will be the lowest multiplier that can land on the reels. For example, if the yellow firefly lands on the moon scatter, then all wilds appearing on a free spin will be minimum x2 multiplier wilds. The free spins can be retriggered indefinitely, with the retriggering firefly becoming the new minimum multiplier wild that can land. This can go both ways as you might start off with an x3 minimum multiplier wild and end up with a standard wild after a retrigger or vice versa.
Firefly Frenzy is a beautifully designed slot but in our opinion maybe with just a tad too little happening on the reels. While more than one multiplier wild can land in the base game as well, chances are they will be often the standard x1 wild. Hence, it will be a waiting game to trigger the free spins and hope an x2 or x3 firefly will land on the moon scatter as that significantly increases the chances for mega wins.
