Fortune Coin Slot: Review

Fortune Coin: Demo

A slot called Fortune Coin was always likely to take us on our travels and rather than Ireland it’s China we’re off to here. Created by IGT, it’s a 5 reel, 243 ways to win video slot. Keep a special eye out for magical Fortune Coins that can deliver instant win prizes, free spins and 4 jackpot awards each time they land. Play this low to medium variance game on your computer, tablet or smartphone from between 60p and £600 per spin.

Land-based feel

Fortune Coin base game

Fortune Coin has a similar look to many other slots in the IGT catalogue. The developer’s live casino roots are clearly evident. A forest at night forms the backdrop to the action. On the reels you’ll see lower value A to 9 symbols plus more rewarding gold ornaments. The lion is the best of these. Land 3, 4 or 5 in combination and you’ll pocket an award of 30, 35 or 40 coins. There’s also a wild, the golden dragon, that replaces all the standard symbols.

Synchronized reels

The top payout numbers look a little on the skinny side. Helping your winning chances are synched reels. Stacked symbols can all morph into the same matching symbol which can create some large winning clusters.

Fortune Coin feature

Central to much of the best action on offer is the gold Fortune Coin symbol. Every time one of these appear, you’ll land an extra. You can land up to 15 of them on the same spin. All the coins flip over in turn to reveal one of the following prizes:

  • A coin prize of the amount shown – up to 1,000 x bet
  • 5, 10, 15 or 20 free spins
  • Access to Jackpot Bonus feature

Jackpot Bonus feature

If you’re lucky enough to flip over a coin that reveals the Jackpot Bonus feature, you’ll be taken to a new screen. You’ll then take part in a pick me round. Behind each symbol is a Mini, Minor, Major or Maxi Jackpot symbol. Keep picking until you find 3 that match and that’s the prize that’s awarded.

The Maxi Jackpot is worth 166.67 times your total bet (initially). Even better is the Win All symbol which does exactly what it says on the tin and awards all 4 jackpots.

Boost the Jackpots

You could also find a Boost, Super Boost or Mega Boost during your picks. This increases the size of the jackpots on offer. You can see the prizes available in the meters above the reels. If you boost the Maxi Jackpot by 3, it will be worth 500 times your total bet.

Free Spins Bonus feature

Fortune Coin Free Spins Bonus feature

You can activate the free spins round in the standard manner by landing scatters as well as via the Fortune Coin. Land 3, 4 or 5 dragon head scatters on the same spin for an award of 2, 10 or 50 times your total bet. You’ll also receive 10, 15 or 20 free spins.

The higher value symbols can sync and transform in this round. You can trigger the Fortune Coin and Jackpots from the free spins round too. More importantly, you can win lots more free spins – and play with up to 1,000 altogether.

Low volatility

IGT has kept things relatively simple in Fortune Coin. Both the design and the gameplay are steady rather than spectacular. The imagery is solid enough, backed by a classical Asian soundtrack. It’s a similar story with the features. There’s nothing massively original but it does the job rather nicely.

Low variance, you can win up to 1,000 x bet from the Fortune Coin feature. If you want a land-based/live casino slot that delivers more action and higher wins, Cleopatra (by IGT) is recommended – and is 1 of the most popular slot games ever produced.
