Styled after French Art Nouveau in design, Turn Your Fortune slot is framed with gilded reels and looks opulent and glittering. Not only does it look sophisticated, the game play is a bit intricate as well. Everything centers on the ‘Fortune Tower’ which is placed on the left of the reels. Your job is to collect symbols and climb up the tower, horizontally as well as vertically, while your wins multiply.
This 5-reel, 4-row game with 40 paylines features 5 medium-win, and 4 low-win symbols. The latter are the J, Q, K, and A card royals, while the former are in the shape of a fish, turtle, owl, lion, and an emerald-coated shell. There is a butterfly lady who is the game’s wild symbol. She can substitute all other symbols except the scatter to help create winning combos. However the wild will not replace the epical symbols that appear in the bonus rounds.
The gilded peacock is the game’s scatter, and you need to get three of them on reels 1, 3, and 5 to activate the bonus games. Turn Your Fortune has two bonus rounds and that is where the main action takes place. The red-maned lion is the most valuable and pays between 40 and 200 times your stake for landing on reels 3 to 5. All symbols can appear fully-stacked, which increases your chances of landing winning combinations and notching up some especial wins in the bonus rounds.
Turn Your Fortune is a medium-to-high variance slot with a respectable return to player ratio of 96.24%, most of which is reserved for the re-spins feature. The base game is uninspiring, to say the least, and the game has been designed around the Fortune Tower wins, which only come into play in bonus games.
In the base game, you only get paid when you land identical combinations on at least three reels from left to right according to the multipliers attached to the winning symbols.
The card royals pay out from five times your bet if J lands on 3 reels; and up to 40 times your stake if A lands on all 5 reels. The winning combinations can be linear or in zigzag fashion.
The shell pays out 15, 30, and 60 times your bet for landing on 3, 4, or 5 reels respectively. The emerald pays 20, 40, and 80 times your stake for landing on reels 3, 4 or 5.
Next is the turtle with multipliers of 25, 50, and 100. The wise owl is next and pays you 30x, 60x, and 120x for correspondingly landing on 3, 4, or 5 reels.
However, the free spins and re-spins multipliers are what you should be looking for after you get the required scatters to land on the reels. The Fortune Win Tower has 5 levels and 5 horizontal spaces at each level.
At Level 1, you get 5 times your stake on the first step, which goes up to 150 times your bet once you reach the last step of the same level. Similarly, you start with a 50 multiplier on the first step of level 5, and can graduate to 2,000 times your bet at step 5, which is the biggest payout of Turn Your Fortune.
If you can land two peacock scatters on reels 1, 3, or 5 along with a winning combination of any symbol, you trigger the re-spins feature and the Fortune Wins. You have to first collect the winning symbol and then collect more symbols that are allocated to you. If you land a +10 symbol, you get 10 symbols to fill your collection points automatically.
That will be the only symbol on the reels during the re-spins round along with a key symbol, which may fall on the fifth reel. The key opens up the first level of the Fortune Wins feature. Your job is to collect as many allocated symbols with every re-spin. You will get a win on the payline, and for every 5 of the same symbols you collect, you go up on the Fortune Win tower.
The free spins feature plays out in pretty much the same fashion, except that you need to land 3 scatters on reels 1, 3, and 5 to activate them. You’ll be taken to a wheel of fortune of sorts to see how many free spins from 7 to 13 you have collected. Here’s where you get to determine the number of symbols you have to collect during the free spins, and which level of the Fortune Tower you will be start the free spins round at.
Every 20 symbols you collect will send you higher up on the Fortune Tower, where you can also win cash prizes along with the multipliers. As in the re-spins round, every time the key drops on reel 5, you unlock another level of the Fortune Tower. Again, the +10 symbol will help you with your collectibles by filling the pot. During the free spins, every additional scatter that lands, gives you one extra spin, which can go some way in paying out the top multiplier.
Fortune on the Go is optimized with HTML5, which not only supports all contemporary mobile platforms like Android and iOS, it also plays out seamlessly with full HD integrity and original sound quality. You can enjoy this game while on the move on virtually any smartphone or tablet. However, make sure you have a reliable internet connection at all times to enjoy uninterrupted gaming.
NetEnt has created better slots than Turn Your Fortune. It is an innovative slot as far as the game play is concerned. However, the higher volatility can make the base games pretty monotonous, while you wait for the elusive scatter to turn up on the reels in their designated numbers.
Though the betting window is wide, which makes it ideal for both high and low rollers, a little more action in the base game would have definitely turned many fortunes.
