Test out your fortune with this 3-reel slot machine by Microgaming and you might just be in store for some wins worth up to 30,000 credits. Fortuna has 5 paylines and a wild symbol, meaning that spinners will have a decent amount of chances to line up some winning spins. That said, this game is about as simple as they come on the bonus gameplay front with no free spins, no special side games, and no potential to win a progressive jackpot bounty.
Is fortune on your side?
Nothing quite gets us in the mood for a spin of the slots than a game that is themed around the world of mysticism and fortune telling. Admittedly, this Fortuna slot machine by Microgaming is not going to offer the most captivating of mystical spins in the world, but the game might still whet your appetite with its mysterious clairvoyant character and enchanting golden coin symbols. Plus, the game might also appeal to those players who are fans of traditionally themed arcade games with a series of typical slot machine icons such as bright and juicy cherries, a series of BAR symbols and some lucky 7s – coloured in a mystical purple as opposed to the usual red.
As is the case with most 3-reel slot machines, Fortuna doesn’t offer up anything particularly mind blowing in the design department. That isn’t to say that the game isn’t nice to look at, just that it is slightly outdated with its two dimensional symbols and lack of any extra animated action other than the standard spinning action of the reels. Despite this, the slot machine still presents plenty of colour to catch the eye of spinners, which is more than can be said of most other classic style games out there.
Fortune Favours the Brave
With 5 paylines available to activate, players will find that this slot machine offers a decent range of wagering permutations, ranging from total bets that start from as little as 0.25 credits and rise as high as 25.00 credits. In order to activate different quantities of paylines, players simply have to toggle the “Bet One” button that appears in the slot machine’s control panel. After punters are happy with their selected paylines, the only thing that they have to do before they start spinning the reels is set the value of coin that is placed on each payline. The options are as follows: 0.25, 0.50, 1.00, 2.00 and 5.00 credits.
Finding matching icons on the any triggered payline will result in a line bet multiplier prize being awarded. So, if you spin a row of three cherries, you will receive a reward that is worth 4x the value of the line bet. Players can also get their hands on some wins if they happen to find one or two cherries on a payline in any position. You can see all of the possible paying combinations with their rewards in the following paytable:
There is one more symbol involved in this 3-reel slot machine – depicted by the Fortuna logo icon. This symbol is actually very important since it is the game’s most valuable icon which offers line bet multiplier wins worth up to 6,000x. However, that line bet prize is only available to players who play with all 5 paylines, as you can see in the game’s paytable that is presented on the main game screen. In fact, players who play with 1, 2, 3, and 4 paylines will only be able to win line bet multipliers worth 1,000x, 2,000x, 3,000x and 4,000x respectively.
Not only is the Fortuna logo icon the most rewarding in terms of payout potential, but it is also very useful to spinners thanks to the fact that it will act as a wild icon to help complete winning formations. This wild symbol will replace all other symbols on the reels, meaning that it could provide the all important link between a loss and a winning spin!
Retro Spins with a Magical Twist
Fortuna is a relatively straightforward game on many fronts – there are no special bonus features other than a standard wild symbol and the game’s design doesn’t serve up anything particularly mind blowing. Nevertheless, the game is sure to appeal to plenty of retro slot fanatics who are in the market for something with a slightly unusual theme as opposed to the same old fruit machine set-up. What’s more, with 5 paylines set over the reels and a potential jackpot of 6,000x, this game is certainly worth a spin or two.
