Fortunes of the Amazons is a 5 reel, 50 payline slot which sees Side City Studios team up with NextGen Gaming to offer you an Amazonian warrior themed game. Playable on desktop, mobile and tablet devices from £1 to £62.50 per spin, the game is based on feisty female warriors who can reward you with added wilds, free spins with locked wild symbols and a bonus wheel which gives you cash prizes.

Set in a warrior camp, Fortunes of the Amazons looks fantastic – symbols on the reels include 3 female warriors, arrow quivers, breastplates, jewellery/pendants and the Fortunes of the Amazons logo. The flaming wild symbol substitutes for all symbols (except the 2 scatters) and is the highest value symbol as it rewards you with 2,500 times your line stake for 5 across a payline. As for the soundtrack, it has an epic feel and is something out of a blockbuster film!

As for features, there are 3 – you have Amazons’ Fire feature which is a mystery feature that triggers randomly after any spin in the base game. When it’s activated, you will receive 1 free spin – 4 wilds are randomly added to the reels as the reels spin.

Then you have the Free Spins feature which is played when the Amazon on horseback scatter symbol appears on the 3 middle reels – this will give you 5 free spins. 1 wild symbol is randomly added to the reels during each free spin – the wild is locked in place for the duration of the feature (i.e. sticky wilds). This means on your last free spin, you will benefit from 5 wilds!

Finally, you have the Luna Bonus Wheel feature which is triggered when the Bonus Wheel scatter symbol lands simultaneously on reels 1, 3 and 5. The bonus wheel gives you cash prizes and a multiplier value as there are 2 separate wheels which spin concurrently. The outer wheel gives you cash prizes whilst the inner wheel rewards you a multiplier. You can win anything from 20 to 500 times your stake here!

Fortunes of the Amazons has an epic feel and for good reason – I found the variance to be in the middle to high range with the biggest wins coming from the Free Spins feature. If you’re lucky enough to get the 5 wilds across a payline, prepare yourself for a huge win. I also like the Amazons’ Fire feature as 4 wilds in the right places can give you big wins.

If you like the look of Fortunes of the Amazons, I recommend you try Egyptian Rise which has also been co-produced between Side City Studios and NextGen Gaming.
