Plenty O’Fortune Slot
When it comes to online slots, Plenty O’Fortune is about as Irish as it gets. There’s a leprechaun shouting about how you’re going to be as lucky as a four-leaf clover, with rainbows and pots of gold everywhere.
If you believe that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then there’s no doubt that Rainbow Riches from IGT is blushing right now. Plenty O’Fortune is about as close to that game as you can get, without directly cloning it. Not that there’s really anything wrong with that, as there are four or five different versions of Starburst out there, so why shouldn’t there be multiple versions of other well-known brick and mortar casino games?
Actually in some ways Plenty O’Fortune is the better mobile slot when compared to Rainbow Riches, as controversial an opinion as that is. Here is why we think that Plenty O’Fortune has the legs to succeed on its own merit.
Luck of the Irish
Plenty O’Fortune gives you 5 reels and 20 paylines to play with. The game starts off with an intro movie that features all the tools of the trade, including a redheaded leprechaun and Celtic pipe music.
The background in this game presents a rural setting, with the leprechaun taking up a spot in the shade next to the reels and a rainbow far off in the distance. The low paying symbols are the usual playing cards, along with the game’s logo. There are four other special symbols that fill in the gaps, that being the Rainbow wild symbol, the Wishing Well scatter bonus, a Pot of Gold scatter bonus, and (of course) a Leprechaun bonus.
Doused in green
Playtech is great at making slot machines look and play great. They can make any slot work on any device, which is certainly a commendable quality. They bring the 5 reels to life with a wishing well bonus that shoots coins, which the leprechaun catches in his hat. The slot is filled with animation and fun that makes you feel like you’re really playing on an actual online slot machine, rather than something that’s been simplified so that it works on mobile platforms.
On the other hand you’re going to need a great Wi-Fi connection to be able to play Plenty O’Fortune video slot. There are a lot of graphics in-place here, and the Pot of Gold bonus can be painfully slow on a slow connection. It also pops up more often than it does in the Rainbow Riches variant, meaning you can be left with a very slow game if your device can’t take the strain.
Dipping into the pot of gold
To the relief of players, Plenty O’Fortune loads up on bonuses. You get your hands on the wishing well bonus by getting three or more wishing well symbols anywhere on screen. This bonus causes coins to fly out of the well. The top of the screen shows you the total prize earned. If you also manage to trigger the bonus by getting four wells you end up with 2x the money. Getting five wells gives you 10x the money, which results in a serious bumper payout.
Little leaping leprechauns
Getting three leprechauns on reels two, three, and four will net you twelve free spins. During these free spins you also unlock bronze, silver, and gold coins on the reels. These coins are worth a 1x, 2x and 5x multiplier respectively, which once again can boost your bankroll.
Walking to the ‘End of the Rainbow’
Lastly, there is the End of the Rainbow Bonus; this bonus is triggered when you land three, four, or five Pot of Gold symbols on the reels. Doing this takes you to the bonus game. The bonus game features six levels up a path that heads towards the final pot of gold. You are allowed to pick one pot of gold on each level for a cash prize. The game is over when you collect your winnings. Getting four pots will lead to 3x the average winnings, while five pots will leave you with 10x the average amount.
Plenty O’ Everything!
While it’s true that this game is similar to other games on the market, this doesn’t mean that it’s any less playable or any less fun than rival titles. The animations are some of the best around, much like the sound effects. The game is also pretty lucrative if you can get lucky.
Playtech has cooked up a great little game here. When you get right down to it this game has plenty of features and fortune, while it’s a whole lot of fun to play to boot!
