NetEnt has impressed once again with Turn Your Fortune. It’s a five-reel video slot with a total of 40 paylines. There are opportunities to pocket up to 2,000 times your original stake, and the game features an interesting game mode which involves the use of keys and collectable icons to pass through different levels to reach the top payouts.
Turn Your Fortune is a visually impressive title which makes use of some familiar special features to up the excitement (and the jackpot) factor. Features are triggered with the help of scatter symbols, and during the features, players can collect keys to level up and improve their jackpot potential.
Low-value symbols are made up of the standard Jack to Ace cards, with animals making up the high-paying symbols. The most important symbol on the reels, in Turn, Your Fortune is the peacock scatter because it is required to trigger the bonus features. The butterfly acts as a wild which substitutes for all regular symbols. The key symbol only occurs during bonus features. Regular symbols include the lion, turtle, owl, snail and koi fish.
Three-of-a-kind is the minimum amount for a payout (landed left-to-right on the reels). Wagering on Turn Your Fortune begins at 20 coins per spin, although the option is there to increase the betting level (to a maximum of 10) to play with as many as 200 coins per spin. This game is therefore suitable for low-stakes casual players and high rollers alike, as spins can be wagered at anything between 20p and $/€/£100.
Landing two peacock scatters will trigger a re-spin feature, where winning symbols become collectable and locked into position. Re-spins will continue until no new collectable symbols show up on the reels, or if the player reaches the maximum possible payout (200 times the original stake). During re-spins, a key symbol can appear on reel 5. By collecting these keys, players move up levels for a higher payout.
To activate the free spins feature, players need to land three or more peacock scatters anywhere on the reels. Once this is achieved, players will be prompted to spin the wheel to ascertain how many free spins they will receive (between 7 and 13).
The largest possible payout players can expect from NetEnt’s Turn Your Fortune is set at 2,000 times their original bet. To achieve this, players must trigger the free spins feature and reach level 5 by collecting keys – it’s that simple. The RTP on this title is 96.24%.
The game engine used to grant players free spins and re-spins is not something seen often in standard five-reel video slots. It’s worth pointing out that the theme, which looks great, is different to usual slots titles too – but then that’s to be expected of a developer like NetEnt. Ultimately, Turn Your Fortune offers something unique to players, but it can be difficult to reach the levels required to enjoy those large jackpot wins. Nevertheless, it’s a worthwhile slot which gamers of all experience levels are likely to enjoy.
