Physics behind pop up toys

I received a pop-ups popper toy (a rubber toy in the shape of a a dome). I noticed that when I load the popper on my finger, it launches a farther distance than if I load it on a table top. I thought the popper used a suction technique, but then I was confused as to why the popper went farther when loaded on my finger when there was little suction between the popper and my finger. Thanks!
