Reel Riches Fortune Age Slot
Does a double name guarantee double the fun and excitement? After all this is WMS, who has given us countless thrilling slot games for decades, both on brick-and-mortar casino floors and more recently at a wide range of online gaming hangouts. The most popular titles such as Raging Rhino, Zeus or Montezuma have achieved legendary status in the slotting community. We’ll soon find the answer to the question as we review the latest offering from this industry-leading game provider.
Good Fortune With an Asian Theme
Does the gaming world need yet another slot with an Asian theme? Casino sites are virtually littered with countless titles sporting an oriental design and typical lucky symbols such as Chinese coins, cats and artifacts. And while we are spinning the reels, we are treated to serene Asian soundtracks.
The answer is in the affirmative. WMS has combined its creative talent with the lure of five fixed jackpots to produce a thrilling game. Add stacked wild and top symbols into the mix, and what you get is a video slot with a high entertainment factor and huge win potential. The game is rounded off with a free spins round that starts with a pick-and-click game to determine the final amount of free spins and multiplier.
Dry Facts and Figures
Does a double name deliver a higher RTP? The answer to this question has to be no, but WMS has equipped this slot with a comfortable 96.01%, which includes the fixed jackpots. The game window is in a 5×4 format with 40 fixed paylines. Play Reel Riches™ Fortune Age™ with one to 25 coins per bet line for stake sizes ranging between 0.40 and 100 credits.
Rich Symbols and Serene Music
Open the game to listen to a sublime Chinese track played on the traditional 13-string zither, accompanied by serene flute sounds. The background and game window are richly ornamented in Asian style. Just as intricate are the high-value pay symbols, culminating in fire-breathing dragon scatters. Crisp graphics and stunning animations round up a superbly designed game.
The usual 10s to As set, plus an ancient vase and a slender perfume flacon, can be found at the low end of the pay scale, while golden artifacts and an Asian nobleman will award medium wins. The top-paying symbols are two wilds which substitute for all other symbols except the scatters. The first is a bronze coin, appearing stacked at all times and randomly changed into one of the jackpot colors to trigger the Wheel of Fortune. The second is a tile with the word “wild” across, appearing non-stacked in the base game on reel five only and on all reels in free spins. Pays for a single five of a kind range from 1.25x to 12.50x your bet. Three, four or five scatters will award 2x, 5x and 50x the initial stake.
Fortune Free Spins With Increasing Multipliers
Hitting three or more dragon scatters anywhere on the reels in one spin will trigger the Free Spins round. First, the game leads to a second screen with 18 red treasure bags containing five differently colored gems, plus additional free spins and multipliers. Players can now pick bags until they collect three matching gems. Each gem represents a number of free spins and multipliers. Unveiling three matching gems will award the corresponding amount displayed on the left of the game window. The amount of free spins ranges from 5 to 23, while the multiplier can go as high as x4.
Free spins can be retriggered – however, they will be played after the current round has been concluded. Players can then pick again from the 18 bags to reveal matching gems, extra spins and multipliers. A different reel set is in play during the bonus feature. The standard wild symbol is now included on all reels, but the bronze coin wild as well as the colored variations do not appear during free spins.
The Big Money Moment
All eyes on Reel Riches™ Fortune Age™ are on the five fixed jackpots on top of the game window – Mini, Minor, Major, Grand and Mega. The initial values range from 15x to 1,250x your stake, which can be doubled, tripled or even quintupled during the jackpot bonus game. To hit one of the jackpots, players need to trigger the 5-level Wheel of Fortune bonus. The stacked bronze coin wild symbols can randomly change in color and award the feature when at least one appears on a spin in green, pink, blue, yellow or red. Each reel can contain only one type of colored coins in one spin.
Coins landing in different colors on multiple reels will award one spin on the respective level of the Wheel of Fortune, with green being the lowest level and red indicating the top level. The wheel is divided into wedges with coin wins, upgrades to higher jackpots and the respective jackpot for the active level. The win window is initially one wedge of the wheel, increasing by one wedge for every additional coin that landed on the triggering spin. Additionally, any upgrades from lower levels will add one wedge to the win window. The maximum size is limited to five wedges wide. All coin wins, upgrades or jackpot wedges landing within the win window after the wheel stops will be awarded.
This is the very moment where a mega win of 1,250x your stake can turn into a super mega win, exceeding 6,000x your stake. All jackpot wedges landing in the win window will be added, leading to a maximum payout of five times the initial jackpot if five jackpot wedges stop within the win window.
