WMS Wishing You Fortune Video Slot Review

Wishing You Fortune: Demo

Wishing You Fortune is the latest in a long line of Asian-themed slots to hit the virtual online casino shelves. Created by WMS Gaming, it’s a 5 reel, 1,024 ways to win title overflowing with extras. Look out for the bonus feature that offers between 10 and 25 free spins with multipliers ranging from 2x to 30x as well as a spin the wheel feature where a quartet of jackpots are on offer. Play from between 40p and £50 per spin.

The chief attraction in Wishing You Fortune is the Free Spins feature – land 3, 4 or 5 bonus symbols (the woman) and you’ll trigger the feature as well as winning a prize of between 5 and 50 times your total stake. You’ll then have a choice of free spin and multiplier combinations:

  • 25 free spins with wild wins boosted by a 2x, 3x or 5x multiplier
  • 20 free spins with wild wins boosted by a 3x, 5x or 8x multiplier
  • 15 free spins with wild wins boosted by a 5x, 8x or 10x multiplier
  • 13 free spins with wild wins boosted by an 8x, 10x or 15x multiplier
  • 10 free spins with wild wins boosted by a 10x, 15x or 30x multiplier

Land the bonus symbols during the feature and you’ll trigger even more free spins – you’re guaranteed to win at least 10x your total stake too as it uses the Bonus Guarantee feature found in other WMS slots such as Viking Vanguard and Montezuma.

The other main feature is the Fortune Reel feature which is visible above the reels – whenever the Wishing You Fortune firecracker symbol lands on the middle reel, the wheel will spring into life. If it stops on a wild symbol, between 1 and 5 wilds will drop onto reels 2 through 5 below and a payout will be made.

If the wheel stops on the symbol featuring the 4 smiling faces, you’ll go through to the Festival Wheel Bonus feature – choose a segment from the wheel then watch it spin. You’ll be awarded 1 of 5 jackpot prizes: Mini, Minor, Major, Grand or Mega – the jackpot prize can top reach 3,000 times your stake!

Visually, Wishing You Fortune is very tastefully done – symbols on the reels include Asian slot staples such as money purse, bonsai tree, koi carp, lucky frog and heron. They’re set against a night time backdrop filled with lanterns. The action plays out to a gentle, oriental flavoured backing track – all very lovely it is too.

The pace is brisk thanks to the 1,024 ways to win game engine. Add the free spins, where you can alter the variance, and the prospect of winning big on the jackpot wheel and Wishing You Fortune becomes a very tempting proposition.

When Wishing You Fortune delivers on the latter part of its name and your luck is in there are some fine opportunities on offer in this entertaining Asian flavoured offering.
