Bally Technologies Fu Dao Le Video Slot Review

Fu Dao Le: Demo

Bally Technologies heads to China in Fu Dao Le, a 5 reel, 243 ways to win video slot. This virtual trip east comes with mystery stacked reels that can transform into the same matching symbol, 2 different jackpot features and a free spins round. Play from between 38p and £38 per spin.

Fu Dao Le means luck has arrived in English and the game features plenty of fortune-related design. Red dominates the colour scheme and the stakes end in the lucky number of 8. There are 4 main extras which can help you get lucky here too:

Mystery Stacked Symbols feature – every reel contains stacks of mystery symbol positions. When these land, they will transform to reveal the same matching symbol. These mystery stacks can land on multiple reels on the same spin and deliver some potentially exciting rewards.

Red Envelope Jackpot feature – watch out here for the red envelope symbol. When it lands on reels 1 and 5 on the same spin, you’ll trigger this feature and a special jackpot prize.

Pick feature – to trigger this round, you’ll need to land 3 stacked wilds on the middle reel or a partial stack that’s 2 symbols high and nudges into a full stack. You’ll then be taken to a new screen and shown a grid of 15 coins. Keep on picking until you land 3 of the same value. You’ll then win 1 of the Mini, Minor, Major or Maxi Jackpots.

Free Spins feature – land 3 scatters anywhere on the reels on the same spin and you’ll pocket a prize of double your total stake as well as being awarded 8 free spins. Every time a scatter lands on reel 5, an extra free spin is added to your total. 3 scatters and you’ll get another round of 8 free spins.

Fu Dao Le started life as a brick and mortar casino video slot and that’s evident in the slick design and features, both of which are typical of Bally title. The bonus rounds aren’t the most innovative but offer a decent amount of variety. The mystery stacked symbols offer some base game potential and there’s always the chance of landing a biggie via the picks round. If you’re a fan of Chinese themed slots that have a live casino feel, then Fu Dao Le is one to consider. Alternatively, you can try 1 of their branded titles with Michael Jackson King of Pop a good option.
