88 Fortunes is powered by Bally Technologies and is a 5 reel, 3 row, 243 ways to win slot. Playable from 88p to £88 a spin, it can be played across desktop, mobile and tablet devices. This game is the perfect chance for you to test your luck as it has a lucky Chinese theme.
With a predominant red colouring (the lucky Chinese colour), symbols on the reels include golden eagles, golden ships, golden turtles and golden gongs. The golden eagle is the highest value symbol with 5 of them on a payline giving you 1,000 coins.
Being a jackpot slot game, there’s a Fu-Bat Jackpot feature – when 1 or more Fu Bat symbols appear, you can be awarded an available jackpot. You get to pick from 12 lucky coins until you reveal 3 matching Baby symbols. These baby symbols correspond to 1 of 4 different jackpots (Mini, Minor, Major of Grand Jackpot).
There is also a Free Games feature which is triggered by getting 3 or more scatted Gong symbols start with the leftmost reel – this will reward you with 10 free spins. Now, the 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace symbols are replaced with the 5 major value symbols in the feature increasing your chances of winning big.
You can also earn additional free spins – there is no limit to how many free spins can additional earn! Furthermore, the Fu-Bat feature can also be triggered giving you more chances to land a progressive jackpot.
88 Fortunes is all about lucky – as it uses the All Up game engine, you have the chance to buy gold symbols to increase your winning potential. It’s a very popular land based slot, with the online version expected to be just as popular with players.
I found it be a medium variance game with the free spins feature being your best route to riches. The progressive jackpots are obviously hard to land but one can only hope. If you like Chinese themed slots, 50 Dragons and Choy Sun Doa (both by Aristocrat) are very good.
