Lucky Fire Cracker is a mobile game that centres around a fairly typical Chinese theme. There’s nothing out of the ordinary here to really catch the eye. That said, the game does look as good as a theme this simple can allow for. There’s no real background to speak of but the symbols are bright, colourful and well-designed, despite their simplicity. There are Free Spins that come with a multiplier and there are wilds but there’s not much more going on here. Essentially Lucky Fire Cracker is a good game for those who are looking for something that is straight forward, perhaps someone who has a favourite game but wants to something a little bit different to add some variety to their play. The house edge is reasonable, offering what we would consider to be average value for money.
