There are plenty of roads that a slot designer can go down and basing your game on different regions of the world is always a good idea. The Mysterious East is full of ideas for slot games and here’s another one. ‘Fortune Girl’ has an impressive look to it and you will find plenty of ways to get some good winning combinations.
The sheer brightness of this game is guarantee to put a smile on your face and that’s before the wins start making their way into your account balance. In the background, we see a room that is full of Chinese objects with plenty of vases and lanterns. There’s also a massive pile of gold coins on that floor, enough to make anyone envious.
‘Fortune Girl’ has a total of five-reels and on the three rows of even brighter looking symbols, there are a total of 15 pay-lines. Those 15 are the number of pay-lines you will play on every single spin of the reels. No need to be spending any time deciding how many pay-lines to activate but the stake you want to wager is another matter. This is easy to set and the minimum cost of playing this game is just 0.15 and the maximum 75. Whatever your wager is going to be, ensure it’s an amount that won’t cause you any financial worries if you lose it, though hopefully that won’t be the case.
The higher paying symbols in this slot are all theme-related. There’s a golden purse, a tea set, an abacus, a box that is full of gold coins and of course the Fortune Girl herself and very pretty she looks too, five of her on a pay-line wins you 250x your line bet. We also get five Chinese characters that could be saying anything really but they are the lower paying symbols in ‘Fortune Girl.’ It’s good to see an absence of playing card symbols and the theme is brilliantly adhered to here.
The wild symbol is the Fortune Girl logo and hopefully this will make plenty of appearances on the reels for you. It can boost your account balance by substituting for other symbols and getting you plenty of wins. There’s no multiplier attached to wins it creates which is a shame but if you can get five of the wild symbols on a pay-line, that wins you 350x your line bet. The wild can’t replace the golden dragon symbol which is the scatter in this game and plays a key role in triggering the free spins round.
It’s not just the wild that do a spot of substituting. There are also mystery symbols in this game which are stacks of golden doors. They can turn themselves into other symbols but not the wild as that’d make it a bit confusing. This can create more winning combinations and they are also present during the free spins round.
To trigger the free spins round you need to get three or more of the golden dragon scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. Whereas in some games the number of scatter symbols that trigger the free spins determines how many you get. That’s not the case here and you receive a flat rate of 14 free spins. That’s all you will get as it is not possible to re-trigger the free spins regardless of how many more scatter symbols appear. However, the scatter still has a big role to play here because if three of them come along they increase the win multiplier available and that can get as high as 5x.
This isn’t the most complicated of games but it’s still important to do a bit of research. Far better to do that without having to spend any cash, so try out some free games first. That will allow you to see the mystery symbols feature and the free spins so you’ll know exactly what’s going on. Make sure you access the paytable and that is packed with information about the game including how much winning combinations pay out and the rules of the game.
After spending some time playing this enjoyable Microgaming slot, there are other games out there that have similar gameplay. For example, you can try your luck on another Microgaming slot ‘Secret Romance’. That also has 15 pay-lines and an almost identical RTP. There’s the same number of free spins on offer and stacked wilds available to boost your winning opportunities. There’s also the Microgaming slot ‘Fish Party’ which also sees additional wilds in the free spins round with stacked wilds too but has 243 different ways to get a win.
A fairly straightforward slot from Microgaming but one that you will greatly enjoy playing. Its Far East theme is adhered to brilliantly and it’s great to look at. The free spins round can certainly get you some good profits but it’s a shame that you can’t re-trigger the number you are given but at least there’s the multiplier to help boost your account balance and those mystery symbols are a great help too. Definitely worth having a play.
