Tree of Fortune is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot from iSoftBet. It’s not obvious from the title but this is the latest on the conveyor belt of Chinese-themed slots. It’s bit different from most though, offering the chance to pay to respin a reel after each spin in the base game. There’s also a bonus round that awards up to 30 free spins complete with a 3x multiplier. Stakes range from between 25p and £25 per spin.
iSoftBet has kept things pretty traditional as far as design goes – a red patterned backdrop, complete with lanterns, sits against the reels. There you’ll find lower value A to 9 royal values and a selection of objects related to the Asian theme. As you’d expect, red and gold dominate the colour scheme.
In order of value, you’ll see firecrackers, gold coins, a lotus flower and a waving gold cat statue. The Golden Rooster is the best paying symbol, awarding 160 times your stake if you land 5 in combination. Helping to create those lucrative winning lines is the golden dragon wild – this can hit on reels 2 and 4 only and substitutes for everything bar the scatter.
In the base game, you’ll be offered the opportunity to respin a reel following each spin. All 5 reels are offered. The price to respin each 1 differs though, depending on the potential rewards a successful re-spin could deliver. Respin buys are offered if you’re spinning in autoplay mode. This is known as the Respin feature.
Land 3, 4 or 5 of the scatter and you’ll pocket 50, 250 or 2,500 coins as well as triggering the Free Spins feature – on offer here are 15 free spins. Each winning combination is boosted by a 3x multiplier and trebled. The respin buy feature isn’t active here but you can re-trigger more free spins if you manage to land 3 or more scatters.
The respin buy feature offers something a little different – we recommend using it sparingly though. It can certainly get you a big combination but don’t get too carried away with the near misses. The free spins round isn’t bad either thanks to the tripling multiplier. We found the game to be pretty volatile with the variance in the medium to high range.
Tree of Fortune is a well-designed game with a couple of very decent extras. If you enjoy the Chinese theme then this is one to add to the rotation. Saying that, iSoftBet has created better slots with Eye of the Amulet and Skulls of Legend recommended.
