The wombat says: Pinocchio! The puppet who became a real boy. Now there’s a creepy tale if ever this wombat has heard one. From the pen of Italian author Carlo Collodi, The Adventures of Pinocchio was all about a wooden puppet created by childless carpenter Geppetto. Other than wanting to be made of flesh and blood (rather than MDF or pine wood),
Pinocchio was also famous for having a nose that grew whenever he told a big fat lie – all in all, a very strange story. Anyway, Microgaming have taken this fairy-tale, filled it with bonuses a go go and turned it into Pinocchio’s Fortune slot. Let’s spin!
This 5-reel slot have 3 rows and 30 fixed pay-lines, while the reels are set inside a carved wooden frame (the kind that Geppetto himself would be proud of). It’s a 2 By 2 Game distributed by the makers of the Break da Bank Again Megaspins slot– Microgaming. The symbols on your reels are made up of a smoking cigar, a pool ball with the number 1 in it, one of Gepetto’s carving or planing tools, a gold key, some gold coins, Geppetto’s workshop, a bunch of school books, a purple Jiminy Cricket and Geppetto. They do some good fantasy slots, Microgaming, like the Land of Lemuria slot – Pinocchio slots right in there.
The Pinocchio puppet is Wild symbol, and there are also 2, yes 2 Scatter symbols in the slot. An extreme close-up of Pinocchio’s face, and the fairy – both of which will trigger off fun bonus games.
Find Geppetto Bonus
Land 3x of the fairy symbols (that will only show up on the second, third and fourth reels and you’ll set off this nice little bonus feature. Next you’re in a board game with 4 spins to help you move as far along the path to riches as possible. On the way you can earn prizes, multipliers, extra bonuses and even more spins. If you can make it all the way to the final square you’ll scoop a very big win indeed.
Pinocchio Nose Free Spins
If you manage get 3x or more of the Pinocchio Scatters anywhere on the reels you’ll get either will 8, 10 or 12 spins depending on te number of Scatters you landed. During the Spins each Scatter symbol that shows up the reels will grow Pinocchio’s nose a little bit. When the round is over, each scatter collected will give you a pick on a second screen which displays boxes within hidden prizes behind each one. Cheers Pinocchio!
Keep your eyes peeled for the random symbols on reels 3, 4 and 5 that have a small puppet in the top corner. If you land three of these on the same spin you will trigger this nice mini-game. Pick a puppet from a choice of 2, for an instant win. One will give you a cash prize, while the other will turn one of the reels completely wild and give you a re-spin.
This is a game from the Microgaming vaults from a similar era to the Witches Wealth slot -it might look a bit wooden (ha!) and the user interface leaves abit to be desired, but there are some BIG PAYOUTS in Pinocchio’s Fortune slot – and the 3 bonuses land very often indeed. So while the game-play is a bit clunky, you won’t walk away empty handed, which is what it’s all about at the end of the day… Give it a go, you’ll be surprised.
