Fortune Five Slot Review

Millennials won’t know who he was, but once upon a time, there was a singer called Little Richard. One of his big hits was called Tutti Frutti, and fruit is the theme of today’s slot.

Now what I didn’t know was that before this song was recorded, it was actually called Tutti Frutti, Good Booty!

In this guise, it was considered too suggestive and raunchy for public consumption, and while I’d love nothing more than to shock y’all with the original lyrics, I really love my job and would like to keep it.

Of course, there’s Google if curiosity is getting the better of you. I can’t be held accountable for who Googles what, after all!

And now, without further ado, may I present Fortune Five slot from Gamebeat!

Gameplay

Loud, bold, and sassy! That’s what this game is. The 5-reel grid takes up most of the real estate and has some dancing flames at the bottom to let you know this sh*t’s on fire!

When viewed vertically on a mobile phone, the grid sits on the top of your screen with these crazy flames at the bottom. It’s a bit surprising that the flames take up as much space as they do. I’d have thought the reels would have been centered rather, but hey.

When viewed horizontally, this game’s the biz. It just looks so cool and inviting! The fruit on the reels virtually leap off the screen – that’s how vibey and detailed they are. On top of the grid are the 3 Jackpot meters, and they come in Mini, Major, and Mega flavors.

Now, I’m not a fruit slot kinda guy, except for my one indiscretion with Jack Potter slot, but I do like what Gamebeat has done here.

Digging under the hood, we find an RTP of 96.27% – nice! Also nice is the 1,004x multiplier, but not so great is the €50,200 top prize. Oh well, I wouldn’t cry if that landed up in my bank account.

The bet limits are one of the best features of the game, catering to the casual/cautious player (€0.10) and running all the way to the hardcore guys (€500).

As for the volatility, that’s set at a level even Snoop Dogg/Lion would appreciate: very high.

Features

Let’s talk symbols. The highest-paying ones are the watermelon and grapes, followed by the rest, which are all worth the same. It’s only the cherries that will get you a 2x multiplier, whereas all the others do 5x, 4x, and 3x.

The Scatter is a star symbol but unlike in other games, landing a bunch of these doesn’t unlock some feature or kick off a Free Spins round. Nope, this Scatter only increases your wins.

The 7 is the symbol to look out for. If you land 3, 4, or 5 sevens in one line on the reel, from left to right, you’ll be in the Jackpot. Five 7’s mean you clinch the Mega Jackpot, and that’s worth 1,000 times your total bet.

Four 7’s is the Major Jackpot and that’ll see you rewarded with 200 times your total bet. As for the Mini Jackpot, you’ll be awarded this when you land 3 7’s, and its value is 20 times the total bet.

Performance

I experienced not a single glitch or hiccup with this game.

Max Win

The max win for Fortune Five slot is a fairly low €50,200.

Conclusion

Right, so this is a Jackpot-oriented fruit slot game. It has no other features, but nor does it need to, as it’s doing exactly as it was intended.

The RTP is good, and the bet limits are very generous. What lets it down, though, are the top prize and multipliers, if we compare these against other games in the genre.

Personally, I feel that there are better options available if you’re looking for entertainment or after the big bucks. That’s not to say it’s a bad game, it just doesn’t stand out from the crowd and offer something more enticing than the competition.
