The wombat says: Remember Kung Fu Panda? Well, that bloke can pack his bags and head back to China, because this wombat has got more Kung Fu in his marsupial blood than Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan put together. Haaaaiii yaaaaaa!
Welcome to Fortune Rangers slot. So, who are the Fortune Rangers? And what have they got to do with us? Well according to NetEnt, a duo of daring robbers have made off with piles of cash, that could be ours wombat fans. NetEnt are those lovely people behind the Gold Money Frog slot and others, of course, so we were expecting big things from this game.
So are we going to let that happen? Not on our watch!
Look and Feel
The design in this slot is on point as we’ve all come to expect from a NetEnt release. An Eastern palace at night under a bright full moon makes up the background to your gold and red ornamental reels. And this wombat is a big fans of the soundtrack too – which sounds more like something from a Hollywood blockbuster than a Chinese-themed slot like the Double Lucky Line slot or any of the other eastern games we stock.
Fortune Rangers slot has an unusual reel set up with a 3x3x4x4x5 format and 76 paylines. Bets start at £0.20 and go up to a whopping £200 per spin. That´s up there with the Treasure Heroes slot and it´s 5×5 grid.
Your symbols on the reels are made up of the male and female Fortune Rangers (those pesky Kung Fu Bandits) plus a whole load of Oriental paraphernalia including; gold cymbals, golden ingots, ancient-looking scrolls and some elaborate red fans. The Ranger bloke sporting the bandana is the highest paying symbol in this slot and landing 5x of his ugly mug on the reels will pay you out a cash prize of 10x your stake. Nice work.
The lucky golden dragon is the Wild here and will do the usual job of substituting for all other symbols on the reels to make more winning combos for you. Meanwhile, the Scatter in Fortune Rangers slot is the Tao icon – so keep your eyes peeled for it.
Free Spins and Bonuses
Lucky Wild Reels
On any spin, the screen can go dark and between one and five reels will randomly become stacked with wilds. Kerching! Simple but effective! Like this wombat.
Land 3x, 4x or 5x of the Tao-style Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels and you’ll set off the Free Spins feature. Your reward from those cheeky fortune rangers is 8, 12 or 16 free spins complete with linked reels.
So what does ‘linked reels’ mean exactly? Well, on each free spin from 2 to 4 adjoining reels will show the same combination of matching symbols. Reel 2 will show the same as reel 1, reel 3 the same as reel 2 and reel 4 the same as reel 3. Get it? Good.
And you don’t have to be a genius to know this means you’ll dramatically improve your odds of creating combinations. Yippee!
Wombat fans, you might think the gameplay in Fortune Rangers slot is a bit on the basic side – and you’d be right. But things can get going if you hit the Lucky Wild Reels in the Free Spins feature!
It’s a nice game to play for the unusual reel layout, but lack of chunky wins and extra features means it doesn’t make this Wombat’s Top Ten…
