Released: January, 2019
The progressive nature that surrounds the NetEnt label is back once more, this time in the form of their latest release, Turn Your Fortune. This aesthetically pleasing pokie was launched in early January 2019, yet despite its newness, the reviews have been quite favourable since its release.
Sporting an art nouveau theme, decorated in gold and purple, this is a richly textured game that promises large payouts for those who can navigate the 40 paylines and 5 reels. Alongside the variance offered by the paytable, players can expect volatility of a medium to high nature, thus making for a challenging playthrough. Nevertheless, the column of gold that sits beside the reels makes for a stunning visual.
Adorning the 4×5 grid is a variety of symbols, some of which are more in-keeping with the aesthetics of the game than the others, however all the icons help enhance the grandeur that Turn Your Fortune conveys. These more luxurious symbols are made up of golden turtles, orange jewelled owls, flaming red lions, and delicate blue shells; what is more, these are the more valuable icons of the game.
In addition to the above tiles, there’s also card value symbols which although plainer in design, still glitter with all that’s gold. All in all this array of icons total out at 10, with pink and gold butterfly acting as the wild of the entire game, and the peacock acting as the scatter; both are highly important, which is why we’ll return to them later on.
Despite its special feature – the Fortune Wins locked into the gold column we mentioned earlier – most of the mechanics remain the same as any other NetEnt slot: users need to combine matching symbols in order to win. The more you match, the better the returns, with a five of a kind win being the best outcome.
To get the reels started, players need to be willing to make a minimum wager of 20 credits. The amount you gamble can be raised, but it won’t affect the returns of the paytable, however it does play a part in the multipliers that the Fortune Wins feature can bestow upon you.
Seeing as how we’ve mentioned the main feature of the game time and again, it’s about time we fully explored it and how to trigger it. The scatter symbol is the key here, as two or more of them is how you activate either free spins and the feature, or re-spins and the feature; to get only free spins, you’ll need the three scatters on the first, third and fifth reels.
There’s five levels to the Fortune Wins bonus, with keys found upon the reels allowing you to easily unlock another tier of rewards, which obviously means more cash to bank. If you don’t find any keys however, the trick here is to collect the collectable icons in order to fill the Fortune Wins metre, thus causing it to increase a level once again.
As for the wild, it can’t substitute the scatter or key icons, but it can all the other tiles, hence it being an important piece of this sumptuous puzzle.
Moving onto how much you can win, it all depends on how the game pans out for you: if you simply match the right symbols, the highest payout is 200 credits. Should you manage to activate the Fortune Wins and successfully keep scoring more and more wins, the most you can win is x2,000 of what you wager.
Please keep in mind though, that due to the volatility of the title, users may find that they have to play for quite some time before a win is banked. Be patient, the wins will come.
Turn Your Fortune is a fun activity that is sure to tick all the right boxes for those of you who like larger slot machines to sink their teeth into. Not only are there plenty of spaces upon the grid for you to create a winning line, but there’s also a decent range of features, with the Fortune Wins being the most rewarding of them all.
Once again, NetEnt have secured their place as a top notch developer that keeps on giving to its fans.
