The wombat says: the Fortunium slot from Microgaming takes you on a journey to a golden city with soaring skylines – it also has a very cool steampunk that according to the slot wizards themselves, ‘will take players on a journey through an opulent metropolis of prosperity and abundance’.
We’re not too sure what that means exactly, but we will say that this flash-looking game has more extra features than Mrs Wombat’s brand new washer/dryer. If you like a different kind of game like Boss the Lotto, you’ll like this so keep your ears pricked up.
Follow Victoria the explorer and Maximilian the investor on a lucrative trip to Moneyville and see if you can’t get hold of some wads of cash yourselves…
Fortunium Game Play
Microgaming have gone a little off piste with the game mechanics here and have chose an unusual layout for Fortunium slot – with 5 reels, 5 rows and a total of 40 pay-lines. That’s even more than the Witchcraft Academy slot from NetEnt which also sports an expanded set of reels. As you know this wombat is a big fan of shaking things up, so we couldn’t be happier!
Your symbols on the reels are made up of your standard card suits; clubs, hearts, diamonds and spades as your low value symbols, plus a whole host of other steampunk paraphernalia as your high value icons. These include: weird guns, airships, treasure chests full of coins and the game’s 2 protagonists: Maximillian and Victoria. These icons can land stacked 5 rows high, while all the other symbols can appear on the reels in x2 rows.
Fortunium slot also features a Wild which will do the usual job of substituting for all other icons on the reels to give you extra winning combos.
All in all, this eye-catching game reminds us a lot of the Magic Ian slot from Blueprint. Both were designed with mobiles in mind so that you can play the games in portrait mode.
Mystery Symbols and Win Booster
Mystery Symbols will appear as a Question Marks on the reels and also land stacked. Once they hit, they will reveal either high-value, low-value Wilds giving you even more chances for winning combos.
There is also a Win Booster feature that you can turn on (it’s a bit like NetEnt’s Superbet). If you do, the Mystery Symbols will only turn into high-paying symbols and Wilds, to give you even chunkier wins. And as the Mystery Symbols tend to land in stacks, they will now transform entire reels into Mystery Reels! Yippee!
Free Spins and Bonus Features
You’ll also be pleased to hear that Fortunium slot comes with a Free Spins feature Wombat fans.
Set off this cool steampunk bonus by landing 3x, 4x or 5x of the Scatter symbols anywhere across the reels . Manage this and you’ll be given 10 free spins, plus each additional scatter you land during the bonus feature will give you an extra free spin. Why thanks Microgaming!
Now, 3x, 4x or 5x scatters will give you 1, 2 or 3 Mystery Reels on each free spin respectively – these Mystery Reels will only feature Mystery Symbols meaning you could end up with 3 fully wild reels on every free spin! It’s all too much…
Play Fortunium on mobile
Microgaming have created this slot with mobiles in mind. They have done amazing job with the design and graphics to offer the best possible gaming experience in portrait mode – so you can play it on your phones.
But the golden gates to big wins in Fortunium city can be opened from any device Wombat fans, be it desktop, tablet or mobile – so don’t panic!
It’s hats off to Microgaming for this imaginative slot! The mystery symbols are the game’s biggest draw, and this wombat is a fan of the theme too.
