Asian Fortunes is brought to you by Novomatic and is a 5 reel, All Ways slot that can be played from 15p to £150 a spin on all devices. Based on Pandas, it comes with a Free Games feature where all lower value symbols are removed from the reels – there’s also a Jackpot feature where you match lucky pandas the win 1 of 4 progressive jackpots.
Visually, Asian Fortunes is exactly what you’d expect – graphically quite simple and with a dark red background, symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 playing cards as well as cymbals, crocodiles on gold coins, fans, ingots and dragons – the latter is the most rewarding giving you 12 times your stake for 5 on a payline.
The game comes with 2 wilds – you have the blue yin yang symbol which replaces all symbols bar the scatter and appears on reels 2 and 4 only. The red yin yang wild replaces all symbols and appears on reel 3 – it doubles your outcome when part of a winning combination. Asian Fortunes uses the All Ways game engine meaning there are no traditional paylines – you can form winning combinations by getting 3 or more identical symbols landing from left to right starting from reel 1.
This slot benefits from a Free Games feature which is triggered when you get 3 or more gong scatter symbols in any reel position – as well as a payout of 5, 10 or 50 times your stake, you’ll receive 10 free spins. During the feature, the A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 playing cards disappear leaving only higher value symbols on the reels. Look out for scatters as these will retrigger the feature to give you 20 free spins in total.
Asian Fortunes is all about the Jackpot feature – this may be played when you get the blue yin yang wild and red yin yang wild appearing simultaneously. Once in, you will come across 12 gongs – you then pick to reveal a lucky panda. Once you reveal 3 matching pandas, you’ll win the corresponding progressive jackpot. In ascending order of value, you have the Mini, Minor, Major and Grand jackpots.
Asian Fortunes is quite a simple slot in reality – there’s nothing unique about it bar the progressive jackpots. Graphically it’s not the best but it can provide huge payouts due to the jackpots. If you want something that looks great and has rewarding bonus features, Novomatic’s Eye of the Dragon is recommended.
