Fortunium Slot Review
Prepare to join Victoria, the acclaimed explorer, and Maximilian, the industrious investor in the upcoming Microgaming title, called Fortunium. The five by five steampunk themed slot will take you to the golden city of Fortunium, which is an “opulent metropolis of prosperity and abundance”, and the home place of Victoria and Maximilian. As you may suppose, the 2018 release will offer a wide range of special features, including Mystery Reels, Stacked Mystery symbols and a fantastic Win Booster, which turns mystery symbols into high-value icons. The Microgaming product is all about the opportunity and wealth, so get ready for plenty of opportunities to win mind blowing payouts in this metropole.
Since the game is yet to be released, Microgaming decided to keep much of the information about Fortunium close to the chest, but we did manage to dig up some info. Maximilian and Victoria are the main characters of the 2018 release and will appear as stacked symbols on the reels. The Golden Eagle, which can be seen with Maximilian is also present, as well as other gizmos and gadgets used in the city, but also plenty of Treasure Chests that are packed with gold. One thing is sure – card suits are used for low-paying symbols. The Wild will substitute for all regular icons, and there will be Scatters and plenty of Mystery Symbols, but more about that later.
Visually superb, the Fortunium video slot offers a premium portrait experience. The 2018 release features five reels and five rows, but we are still do discover the number of paylines that will be offered, as well as the betting options, coin denomination, etc. The control panel is very simple and easy to use, due to the portrait mode, offering the Spin button, Autoplay with plenty of automatic spins and the Bet option. The Win Booster is located in the bottom left corner of the screen and will help you to super charge your wins.
We are still to see whether Fortunium will offer standard free spins, but for now we can say with certainty that the Microgaming title will feature Mystery Symbols, Mystery Reels and the fantastic Win Booster. Mystery Symbols will appear as a Question Marks on the reels and will appear in stacks. Once they land on the reels, they will reveal either high-value, low-paying or Wild symbols, thus helping gamers land winning combinations more easily. Now, if gamers decide to use the Win Booster, it will make the Mystery Symbols feature only high-paying symbols and Wilds, for bigger wins. Since the Mystery Symbols tend to land in stacks, they will turn entire reels into Mystery Reels.
When it comes to maximum payouts, at this particular moment we can only say that there will be plenty of opportunities for massive wins, especially when a large number of Mystery Symbols is combined with the Win Booster, because all Mystery Symbols will change into high-paying icons and Wilds. Victoria and Maximilian should be the symbols that pay the most in the Microgaming product, but we are still to see how much will they give away.
