Revolution Patriot’s Fortune
Get your musket and march into battle on the slot from Blueprint Gaming. Revolution Patriot’s Fortune is pitting two armies against each other on a high-volatility reel battle that is based on the American Revolutionary War in the late 18th century. Expanding General Wilds and a free spins round with a Burning Reels feature will reward the bravest warriors with up to 10,000 times their bet.
Revolution Patriot’s Fortune is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 20 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for two to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. The reel battle is available on desktop and mobile from 0.20 to 100 credits per spin, however, most operators will offer only a lower limit of 10 credits for the maximum bet. The game has high volatility with an RTP of 95.40%.
The scenery could come straight from the American Revolutionary War that saw the 13 colonies aided by the French defeat the British arm, which ultimately led to the Declaration of Independence and the foundation of the United States of America. Soldiers from both armies flank the reels while a live battle is waging in the background with thick smoke from the cannons and muskets filling the air. An epic orchestra soundtrack goes into glorious crescendos on big wins.
The pay symbols start at the low end with the card royals from J through to A, awarding 2x your stake for a single five of a kind. They are followed by a pair of pistols, infantry drums, horses, army waggons, cannons and a redcoat soldier. Hit five on a line to win 5x to 50x your bet.
The general is the wild symbol, expanding whenever he lands and substituting for all regular pay symbols. A army bugle acts as the scatter on this slot.
Revolution Patriot’s Fortune Slot Features
Battles in the 18th century were hugely loss-intensive due to the old tactics where the generals would line up their armies and march them up to the firing range of their inaccurate muskets. Each army would then should a round before reloading and advance towards the opponents. Massive cannon fire was supporting the attacks while the cavalry would usually launch attacks from the flanks. Not only did these tactics amount to huge losses of life but also horrific injuries from the musket projectiles.
Blueprint is bringing that intensity to a set of slot reels as a follow-up to their highly volatile Napoleon: Rise of an Empire slot that covered the ravaging battles in continental Europe during his reign. Will this be a worthy sequel? Time to take a closer look.
The base game can usually brutal just like a battle at the time and can be a real balance drainer, hence, it should be approached with some caution on the bet size. Some support and reinforcement are coming from the expanding General Wild. Any time he lands on a spin will see him expand to cover the entire reel and provide extra potential to score a win.
The focus however on this game is the Free Spins feature, so much that it feels almost like the final battle of a war where the armies throw the last reserves into the mix in the hope to come out victorious. You will get 15 Free Spins as well as a coin win of 2x, 20x and 50x your bet when you hit three, four or five scatters in one spin. They can be retriggered indefinitely.
During the feature, any General Wild landing on a free spin will first expand as usual and then trigger the Burning Reels feature. All royals in view are set ablaze to make room for new symbols to cascade into place. Any further royals will be burned too until only high-value symbols are on the reels. Wins are paid once after the expansion and evaluated and paid a second time after the smoke from the Burning Reels feature has dissipated.
If you are into intense reel battles, then Revolution Patriot’s Fortune should be right up your alley. The slot is brutal and volatile as they come, although slightly less than its sibling Napoleon: Rise of an Empire. The base game is capable of destroying your balance without remorse while the free spins can be devastating just like a defeat in battle. However, once the reels start burning and the right symbols cascade into place, you can score mega wins of up to 1,000 times your bet in a single free spin. Not for the fainthearted among us reel warriors.
