Fortunium Slots is a “steampunk” theme-based slot. Although I have never heard this term before, here is its meaning: “Steampunk works are often set in an alternative history of the 19th century's British Victorian era or American "Wild West", in a post-apocalyptic future during which steam power has regained mainstream use, or in a fantasy world that similarly employs steam power. Steampunk perhaps most recognizably features anachronistic technologies or retro-futuristic inventions as people in the 19th century might have envisioned them, and is likewise rooted in the era's perspective on fashion, culture, architectural style, and art.” Who knew?
About the Game
Fortunium Slots has a 5x5 layout which I am not used to seeing. However, it is no less imaginative than other slot games I have reviewed. It is noted that you can win 100,000 coins playing this game. This slot game tells the story of Victoria, the acclaimed Explorer, and Maximillian, the Industrious Inventor. There are a wide range of bonus features such as Mystery Reels, Stacked Mystery symbols, and Win Boosters turning mystery symbols into high-value icons. The Win Booster is located at the bottom left hand side of the slot. There is an Autoplay feature in this game. We do recommend you read the 3-page pay table as it will show all the symbols, payouts, special features, and rules of the game. There are five high paying symbols and four low paying symbols. Victoria and Maximillian are among the high paying symbols.
Playing the Game
As noted earlier, Victoria and Maximilian are the stars of this slot game. Gorgeous and handsome are they, and both bring to this game extraordinary wins. Moreover, both land fully stacked on the reels. The W Symbol in this game is the Wild symbol. It will substitute for all other symbols to form winning combinations. It does not substitute for the Scatter symbol, which is the Glowing Green Gem.
The Mystery Symbol
Perhaps the most important symbol of all is the Mystery Symbol. There are two of them: Green and Gold. When you spin the reels, these stacks of symbols can appear at any time and can lead to massive wins. When they do appear, they open up and the symbols underneath them are revealed.
The Win Booster
The Win Booster allows you to pay a little more to give yourself additional chances at winning a huge cash prize. Click on the Win Booster button and you will be able to make all the Mystery symbols that appear on the reels turn into high value symbols or Wild symbols. You will need to bet an extra 50% of your stake in order to participate in this very new and unique feature. It is coincidental that I just reviewed Jade Butterfly Slots in which players have to pay extra to use the re-spin individual reels feature. Is this a trend? If it is, it’s not a good one.
Free Spins Round
When you get three or more scatter symbols, you will activate the free spins round. In this round, the reels will be filled with Mystery symbols as well. Note that the more scatters that appear on the reels, the more reels will be filled with Mystery symbols.
When the Green Gem scatter symbols appear during this round, here is what you will attain: If you get 3 green gems, reel 2 will be filled with Mystery symbols; if you get 4 green gems, reels 2, and 3 will be filled with Mystery symbols; and if you get all five green gems, reels 2, 3, and 4 will be filled with Mystery Symbols.
Steampunked is the Word!
Frankly, this is quite an exciting game to play and has been lauded as such by players across the globe. However, I am still having a hard time believing that you have to pay extra for using the Win Booster or any extra feature of this kind.
