Fortune Reels slot – it’s moooo-tiful!
They say that fortune favors the brave, but apparently it doesn’t matter how plucky you are if you’re a goat. According to Chinese astrology, the goat is the unluckiest zodiac sign, ever! Good thing then that Fortune Reels slot from Wazdan is all about the Year of the Ox. Let’s mooooo-ve on to how to make some moolah!
Play your way with customizable features
Fortune Reels looks the biz, with its delicately styled and detailed graphics against a background of blue. There are a bunch of controls at the bottom of the reels that you can use to customize your gameplay or select various features.
For starters, there’s the Buy feature where you can purchase a Hold the Jackpot Bonus (more on that later). You can also – and this is really cool – change the game’s volatility. A push of the button toggles between low, standard, and high so you can adapt the game to your preferred style. You can even select how fast the reels spin! Your options are normal, fast, and ultra-fast.
Special symbols include a Wild, which expands vertically and substitutes for all other symbols except the Bonus and Sack ones. If you grab a Sack and up to 5 Bonus symbols at the same time, this gets you an extra prize accumulated from the Bonus symbol. If you manage to pull at least 6 Bonus symbols, this will set off the Hold the Jackpot bonus.
Jackpots in three different sizes
Right, so now we get to this feature. The Hold the Jackpot bonus game is played on 27 reels and all Bonus symbols are sticky here. You’ll find Special Bonus symbols on the top row of the reels only (snobs!), while Regular Bonus symbols (poor plebs!) only get the 4 remaining rows.
At the start of the Hold the Jackpot bonus game, you’ll get 3 re-spins. Each new bonus symbol you land resets the number back to 3 re-spins, and the feature ends when all the re-spins are done, or all of the reels are filled with Bonus symbols.
The Golden Coin symbols award prizes ranging from 1x to 10x your bet. If you’re not a goat gambler, you’ll hopefully also see either a Mini, Minor, or Major coin symbol as they randomly appear during the bonus game. These, of course, mean you’ll get the corresponding jackpot and it’s even possible to win multiple jackpots of the same type!
During the jackpot game, you’ll hopefully see a Golden Ox coin. This accumulates the value of the Golden coins from the reels below and multiplies them randomly by 1-9x. The Money Tree symbol randomly adds anything from 3 to 8 Golden coins to the reels below. If a Golden coin gets added to a reel position where there’s already a Golden Coin symbol, then it increases its value.
Lastly, there’s a Mystery Symbol that can change into any other Bonus symbol. These Mystery symbols open one at a time at the end of the bonus game.
If the stars align and you collect all of the 27 Bonus symbols, and you’ll be awarded the Grand Jackpot – that means 1,000x your bet! And that gets added to your total win!
Hit the bullseye!
Fortune Reels slot is an interesting game with cool features and options. No need for intricate storylines here; the fun is in the gameplay and in the potential to make megabucks.
