What Do the Numbers Have to Do With the Firecrackers?

Bao Zhu Zhao Fu firecrackers

Sometimes the Cash on Reels symbols aren’t as obviously linked to the bonuses that follow, at least for some players. Here’s an example:

I have a question about the Firecracker type games. What is the significance of the dollar amounts on the rockets that shoot up to the different sets of firecrackers? It doesn’t seem to matter what the amount says on the rocket in relation to whether or not you are going to get the bonus. I would expect that the higher the amount the more likely it is you are to get the bonus, but in my experience, it doesn’t really seem to matter what the amount says on the rocket. And it certainly doesn’t seem to have any bearing on the amount you are going to win even if you do get into one of the bonuses.

We’re working under the assumption you’re talking about the Bao Zhu Zhao Fu series by Aristocrat, a three pot style game that instead uses firecrackers.

You are right that the numbers aren’t related to the odds of the bonus going off. The size of the numbers have no relation as to whether the bonus will trigger.

Instead, the numbers and placement are important when the bonus actually triggers. Here’s a look at an example of when Brian Christopher triggered the bonus. Here’s the placement of the numbers when the bonus was triggered:

And now here is the placement of the numbers as the bonus begins:

Bao Zhu Zhao Fu numbers on two boards

The numbers appear twice because since Brian triggered the Double Up feature you get two boards with them.

As such, what you’re ultimately seeing is the initial amounts that you’ll have on the board when the bonus initiates, and that’s the relationship. It certainly works differently than other games of this style, which probably is part of the reason why some can get confused.

And, for completeness, what has no relationship to when a bonus will go off is the firecrackers and how full they are. But we’ve been down that path already.

We hope this helps you better understand the game when you play it in the future!
