Year Of Fortune Slots

Review by

Year of Fortune slots features a Chinese festival like you’ve never seen before. The game is colourful and lit up by hundreds of candles all over the reels. The symbols go into more detail with dragon statues, Chinese coins, lanterns and many more. 

Players will be entertained as combinations appear on 5 reels and payout with 25 pay-lines. There are also many bonus symbols and features to enjoy and find bigger payouts for any coin value. 

The base game can offer payouts up to 8,888 coins for a single combination, but keep your eye on the progressive above the reels as it will be rewarded once 5 Chinese men appear on a single line. Bonus features offer wild multipliers, free spins and scatter symbols.

Year of Fortune has a lot to offer in the game as well as with betting options below the reels. Players will constantly be able to view remaining credits, bet and jackpot info above the reels while changing options below them. As for winning opportunities, at least 3 of the same symbols need to appear from left to right on any line to activate a reward. The highest paying symbols reward when only 2 or more of their symbols appear on a line.

Wild symbols make it easier to trigger combinations as they can stand in for missing symbols. The wild symbol, represented by the golden cow, is seen only on reels 2, 3 and 4. Moreover, the wilds will double the payout of any combination it’s featured within. The Wilds will not be able to help trigger the jackpot or any other bonus features.

Year of Fortune provides one of the largest free spin features we’ve ever seen. This comes into effect when at 3 Year of the OX bonus symbols are scattered on the 5 reels, It will activate 8 free games with three, 18 free games with four scatters and a incredible 88 free games should a scatter symbol appear on each of the five reels. All free spins include a wild multipliers and scatters, meaning the feature can be re-activated for additional free games. We managed to activate 18 free games twice, in one case we received an additional 8 free spins and the results were more than satisfactory. Having played many video slots, I can tell you, this does not happen often, never mind twice in a row.

Year of Fortune is a great game to play. The features are highly rewarding as mentioned above, but so was the main feature. At the end of the game, it was the free spins that made us smile with an additional reward above the amount we started with. Be sure to use a higher coin size as it seem to make the free spins easier to trigger.

Our rating: 87/100
