Turn Your Fortune
Want to spin for a fortune? Then this Netent slot might just have the goods to deliver that. A rather unusual game design from the Swedish studio that also contains some unseen pay mechanics. A perpetuum mobile-like machine is at the centre of hitting mega wins of up to 2,000 time your stake, which would go on top of any potential line wins. Collecting keys on reel five and designated pay symbols in the respin and free spins features will set the Fortune Wins machine in motion to increase the wins over five levels to reach the maximum payout.
Turn Your Fortune is a video slot with five reels, four rows and 40 fixed pay lines. It comes with wild substitutions, a free spins round and Fortune Respins, both with Fortune Wins. The RTP of this medium to high variance game is set at 96.24% with a maximum win potential of 2,000 times the initial stake from the Fortune Wins machine but overall, it can be much higher over an entire respin sequence or free spins round. Bet sizes range from 0.20 to a modest 20 coins. As with all Netent creations, the slot is in HTML5 format and can be played on mobile, tablet and desktop.
Graphics and Visuals
Get ready to see some bold graphics and visuals when you load Turn Your Fortune. A dark background builds the perfect contrast to a bright game window with golden frames and intricate pay symbols. The Fortune Wins perpetual machine on the left of the reels is adding even more brightness to the screen. The soundtrack is a mix of reel sounds, perpetuum mobile noises and acoustic music.
The slot has nine regular pay symbols, starting with J to A suits and followed by intricate brooch-style jewellery depicting in ascending order a snail, a fish, a turtle, an owl and a lion. Lining up five on a pay line will award wins from two to 20 times your stake. The wild symbol is yet another intricate tile with a butterfly, substituting for all symbols except scatter and key symbols. The golden key symbol appears in free spins or respins and on reel five only. A peacock with the word ‘Free Spins” at the bottom is the scatter symbol.
Fortune Wins Bonus Game
The Fortune Wins perpetuum mobile on the left of the game window is the main actor for the bonus game. It will work in different ways during the Fortune Respins and free spins features. The perpetuum has in both features five vertical levels, while each level has five horizontal steps. The coin win values increase on each step and level. The lowest value is five coins and the highest is 2,000 coins. Each coin win is multiplied by x20, taking the minimum win to 100 coins or 5x your stake and the maximum to 2,000x your stake.
To go up one vertical level, players need to accumulate sufficient collectible symbols. To advance one horizontal step a key symbol needs to appear on reel five. The total win from the Fortune Wins bonus game is paid after it ended, according to the level and step that was reached.
The Fortune Respin Feature
Teaser spins are the bane of us slot players. Hitting two scatters mostly sets all bells and whistles in motion in the expectation for the third scatter to land, only for it to end in a miss again. NetEnt has taken these teaser spins and transformed them into a potential mega win chance.
On the Turn Your Fortune slot, two scatters will trigger the Fortune Respins if a winning combination lands on the same spin. The perpetuum activates and all other symbols from the spin disappear from the reels, except those from the winning combination. The winning symbols are locked in place and become the collectible symbol for the respin, which will be accumulated in a counter on the side of the perpetuum.
Any further collectible symbol landing on the respin will be added to the counter and another respin awarded. The Fortune Wins machine levels-up vertically after every five accumulated symbols while a key symbol will move it by one horizontal step. The bonus game ends when no new collectible symbols land on a respin. Any new line wins as well as the Fortune Wins coin amount are added and paid.
The Free Spins Feature
Scatters on reels one, three and five will trigger the free spins feature with the Fortune Wins machine. However, hitting the three scatters and a win will award both, the free spins and the Fortune Respins. The free spins are played first. A bonus wheel with three tiers appears to determine the number of free spins between 7 and 13, the collectible symbol for the bonus round and potentially award a key symbol. One spin will be played and the items stopping on the arrow will be awarded. Winning a key symbol from the bonus wheel will initiate the first horizontal step of the Fortune Wins machine and thus starting the bonus game on a higher coin value.
Any collectible symbol landing on a free spins is collected in the counter. For every 20 symbols, the Fortune Wins machine moves one vertical level. Any further key symbols will move it one step horizontally. One extra free spin is awarded for every scatter symbol landing on a free spins. The regular line wins are paid after each spin, while the wins from the Fortune Wins machine are added at the end of the round.
Did NetEnt rejoice their creative power? After the highly praised Vikings slot, they have now produced the second exciting slot in a row. It is very entertaining to play, the features hit frequently enough and most of all, a teaser spin can now produce a huge win. Kudos to NetEnt at this point as some of the last releases were rather lacklustre games with little win potential.
