Fortune Girl is an anime style five-reel slot designed by MicroGaming. The ‘Fortune Girl’ herself is a cute, dark haired girl in pony tails, with the trademark large eyes so familiar to anime fans. She is joined on the reels by a series of impressive looking symbols, including an Oriental gold purse and a box full of gold ingots.
Several game play features make this title stand out. There are mystery symbols which can make for some eye-catching wins. There is also a scatter symbol with a potentially huge prize attached. Best of all is the free spins bonus round where multipliers can play a leading role.
This Asian themed slot plays out on the familiar 5×3 reel configuration. The game has a total of 15 win lines and pays from left to right. The first thing you’ll notice on the reels are the circular golden doors which appear. You might find these filling much of the reels – these are the mystery symbols. When the reels come to a stop, each of these doors will now turn into the same symbol. This symbol can be any other in the game apart from the wild.
The wild symbol shows the title logo of the slot and will substitute for any symbol apart from the scatter. This wild is also the highest paying symbol in the game, worth 350 coins if hitting the maximum five in a row.
The ‘Fortune Girl’ herself is the highest paying standard symbol and has a top pay-out of 250 coins. The pink box of gold is next on the pay table at 200 coins. A golden purse, silver ingots and an abacus then pay 150, 120 and 80 coins respectively. The standard symbols are completed by five ornate Asian style words.
It’s not unusual to find a scatter symbol which pays out when appearing 3, 4 or 5 times on the reels. The scatter symbol here goes much further! Land 3 and you’ll win your stake back, but here you’ll see pay outs for the scatter all the way up to the maximum 15. Here are the biggest prizes:
It might seem that these large numbers are unlikely. However, the golden door mystery symbols can transform into the scatters at any time, making these big wins entirely possible.
When you have a spin where you land three or more scatters you have the bonus of entering the free spins feature round. Here you’ll have 14 free spins. Each of the spins has added extras.:
First, the golden door mystery symbols are super stacked, making large multiple wins more likely. During the free spins, the golden doors can also transform into wild symbols too. This doesn’t happen during the base game, and can mean some amazing wins during the feature.
Second, you have a multiplier meter above the reels. Each time you land 3 or more scatters during your free spins, you’ll move along this meter. You’ll start with a 1x multiplier but this can increase to as much as 5x.
The backdrop to this slot shows the interior of a large room. You have large red drapes in the room, along with lanterns, all giving the room a red glow. A large patterned rug sits in the middle of the room and either side are large piles of gold coins.
The images on the reels are just as good. The stand out symbol in the game is the fortune girl herself, though every symbol has a slick design. The lack of any animation is a little disappointing, although this is a small criticism of an otherwise excellently designed slot. The accompanying Far Eastern theme tune is perfectly fitting, doing a fine job of adding further atmosphere into the game.
Fortune Girl is a very entertaining slot from start to finish. The visuals are immediately easy on the eye and it’s quickly clear that the game play is unique. The golden doors add a nice level of excitement to the base game, as a big win is only ever a spin away. The potential of large scatter wins only add to the interest. The game really goes to town during the feature, where the free spins can lead to you winning a fortune!
