Any time you see the word ‘fortune’ in the title of a pokie there’s always the hope that this will give you a little bit of a boost with symbols such as gold ingots on the slot reels. This pokie might just deliver! Joining the ingots are chains with an emerald and gold pendant, beanstalks sprouting gold, oranges and other fruits.
Like many Konami pokies, Red Fortune is set up to be exciting from the start, with big win potential on any spin. Things get intensive in the free spins bonus, where big multipliers are possible. Here’s a look at the highlights:
You’ll enter the free games bonus feature by landing yin and yang scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. 3, 4 or 5 scatters will award you with 8, 12 or 25 free spins respectively, while also paying 4x, 10x or 600x your total stake as an immediate win (the 600x win for the maximum 5 scatters is a standout prize!).
During the free games, multipliers come into play. The wild symbol, represented by an Eastern inscription, appears on reels 3, 4 and 5 only (the same positions as in the base game). However, these wilds will have a multiplier of 2x or 3x attached. Land a win with the wild symbol and this multiplier will be applied.
Things can get very interesting when you win with more than one wild symbol on the line. For example, if you win with a 2x and 3x wild both in play, your total multiplier will be 6x. The perfect spin will see 3x wild multipliers appear on reels 3, 4 and 5, which will multiply your win by an amazing 27x. This would make a very good time to land a high-paying 5 in a row win.
You’ll find ‘Action Stacked Symbols’ in play on Red Fortune. A large number of positions on all five reels are ‘reserved’. When you hit spin, they are all filled with the same (randomly chosen) symbol.
For example, the oranges could be chosen as the ‘Action Stacked Symbol’ and for that spin only, the oranges will be the most populous symbol on the reels. With this format in play, you are much more likely to land a big win across many of the win-lines. The perfect spin will see you fill all five reels with the randomly chosen symbol.
Red Fortune is a five-reel pokie with a total of 30 win-lines. The cost of each spin is the same 30 credits, with players having the option of playing for 1, 2 or 5 coins (which can take the cost of a spin up to 150 credits).
The gold ingot is the highest paying symbol, worth 200 coins for the maximum five. The emerald and gold pendant pays 150 coins. Both of the fruit symbols pay 100 credits as a top prize, while the gold-tipped beanstalk and the playing card symbols (9, 10, J, Q, K and A) are at the bottom end of the pay table.
The backdrop to Red Fortune features two tall red and gold pillars either side of the reels, with an ornate plant design wrapping itself around the stone. The reels themselves have a dark, almost scarlet complexion, with a stylish shade falling over them. The most eye-catching of the symbols is the scatter Yin and Yang, which when you look closely, has dragons etched into the symbols. The addition of the playing cards adds a nice splash of colour to the reels.
Red Fortune is an enjoyable and engaging pokie from Konami. With those ‘Action Stacked Symbols’ throughout the game, every spin offers up the chance for an amazing pay out. Hitting those Yin and Yang symbols sees the game quickly move through the gears – with an incredible 600x your stake potential win, as well as entry into the free spins round. Line up those multipliers in a row and those pay outs will go through the roof.
