Mistress of Fortune is an Asian-themed slot powered by Blueprint Gaming. Played using a 5 reel, 40 payline game engine, it comes with a free spins round where random symbol transformations can lead to potentially large rewards. Join the action from between 40p and £400 per spin.
The design in Mistress of Fortune has a definite oriental flavour – set against a flower-filled, pink and purple backdrop, the reels include stylised playing cards from A to 9. They’re joined by 4 brightly coloured magical orbs. The yellow and pale blue orbs award 20, 50 or 200 coins if you land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline. They’re followed by the dark blue orb which pays 25, 75 or 300 coins. Most lucrative is the red orb which offers payouts of 25, 100 or 400 coins.
Complementing the standard symbols is the wild – this can land on all reels and substitutes for all other symbols apart from the bonus. 3, 4 or 5 of these on a payline will get you 50, 200 or 500 coins. The wild can land fully stacked and fill up the whole reel in which it appears.
The roaring dragon is the game’s scatter – land 3 of these anywhere on the reels on the same spin and you’ll win a payout equal to your total stake. You’ll also trigger the Free Spins feature and with it, 5 free spins.
During the feature, keep a special eye out for the Mistress of Fortune – when she lands, she’ll reveal a special transformed symbol. All instances of this symbol morph into the same matching symbol. A new payout is made with the new symbols in play.
It’s not the easiest feature to trigger but there are chances to land some big combinations here. Furthermore, you can retrigger the feature quite a lot of times with a maximum 255 free spins in total up for grabs!
Mistress of Fortune is simple, well-designed slot – the visuals are nicely put together and the Asian style backing track has a haunting quality that is right in keeping with the theme. The gameplay isn’t the most action-packed you’ll find. The initial allocation of 5 free spins is on the skinny side but the transforming symbols courtesy of the Mistress of Fortune and multiple retriggers make it worth hitting.
We’ve taken many virtual trips to Asia in our slots play – Mistress of Fortune is certainly 1 of the prettiest we’ve come across. The range of features isn’t large but if the mystery transforming symbols hit nicely, then Mistress of Fortune can live up to her name. If you like mystery symbols, Playtech’s The Flintstones offers them.
