Firefly Frenzy from Play'n GO: Slot Review - an enchanting little game!

Visit a mysterious forest filled with glowing fireflies and flowers in this very enjoyable Play'n GO slot!

Take a trip to an enchanted forest filled with lots of glowing fireflies in this hot new release from software studio Play’n GO. Fireflies or lightning bugs as they are referred to in America are soft-bodied beetles that produce a cold light at twilight in order to attract mates or prey. Most fireflies have the ability to fly and can illuminate the night sky with all kinds of glowing colours that can come in a variety of different shapes and sizes. The fireflies in this game live in a magical forest full of shimmering crystals and it is said that when they come together at night to light up the reels then you are in for a massive cash payout. Let’s see if we can round up a few of them to help us do just that!

Firefly Frenzy is a 5 reel slot with 30 paylines that includes Firefly Wilds, Multipliers, and Frenzy Spins.

Special Features

Firefly Frenzy comes with a range of forest-related symbols including Flowers, Mushrooms, and Fireflies. The most profitable of these symbols is the Golden Flower as if you are lucky enough to land 5 of them on a payline then you will be treated to a fine cash prize worth 30X your wager.

3 different coloured Fireflies act as Wilds in the game with each one offering different rewards. The green Firefly replaces all other symbols apart from the Scatter while paying out 30X your bet for landing 5 on a payline. The orange Firefly boosts winnings with a 2X multiplier while the purple Firefly offers an even better 3X Multiplier. These 3 Wilds can land on all the reels and when you get more than 1 Multiplier Wild then the values are multiplied together. For example:

  • Two 3X Multipliers award a 9X Multiplier (3x3)
  • Three 3X Multipliers award a 27X Multiplier (3x3x3)
  • Four 3X Multipliers award an 81X Multiplier (3x3x3x3)
  • Five 3X Multipliers award a massive 243 Multiplier (3x3x3x3x3)

The Scatter symbol in the game is represented by an image of a Moon and can only appear once on any individual spin. When it does then a Firefly Wild can land on it to trigger the special Frenzy Spins feature. Once triggered, you will receive 8 Free Spins and the Wild that activated the feature is now the lowest multiplier that can land during Frenzy Spins. To expand on this, say if you triggered Frenzy Spins with the 3X Multiplier Wild then all Multiplier Wilds during the feature will be 3X. If you land another Firefly on the Scatter then you will retrigger the feature and if the Wild that triggers it is of higher value than the first Wild that triggered it then it will instantly upgrade the Wilds to the higher multiplier value for the entire feature. Altogether, it is possible to get 16 Free Spins here.

Theme, Graphics and Sound

Presentation-wise, the graphics here are top-notch and exactly what we’ve come to expect from software giants Play’n GO. The setting for the game takes place deep inside a purple shaded forest surrounded by trees, glowing fireflies, and bright flowers. If you look closely you will notice that the actual reel frames are made of branches! Symbols in the game are expertly designed and consist of 3 Fireflies, Flowers, Mushrooms, along with 4 shiny Crystals. The animations are visually stunning as symbols fly down the reels and pop nicely when part of a winning payline. A particular highlight is whenever one of the Firefly Wilds appear as they will proceed to dramatically swoop over the reels and then land into place. It really adds to the gameplay.

The music features a calm and melodic soundtrack playing in the background. It complements the Nature theme of the game really well.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game has 30 paylines, a solid RTP of 96.59%, and a maximum payout worth 10,000X your initial bet.

Our Verdict on Firefly Frenzy

This game is made by Play’n GO and is yet another solid offering from the company. It features vibrant graphics, a wonderful matching soundtrack, along with an interesting but small range of bonus features to enjoy. The Firefly Wilds add that little bit extra to the gameplay and can be highly lucrative when you combine a few together especially when you consider the fact that you can benefit from up to a massive 243X Multiplier! The Frenzy Spins feature is the star of the show here as not only can you get up to 16 Free Spins but also have Firefly Wilds of a certain multiplier value active on the reels. Having said that, it did take me quite a few spins to trigger! The top prize for this game is an enormous 10,000X your wager which can be won on each spin. For variance, it is very High so don’t expect to win a big cash payout right away here. If you are looking for slots with a similar Enchanted Forest theme, check out Butterfly Staxx and Theatre of Night.

Give yourself a warm glowing feeling when you play Firefly Frenzy!
