Phoenix Fortune Theme/Symbols

Phoenix Fortune has a Chinese mythology theme as red and gold make up the colour scheme. Simply designed, you will see A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 low value royal symbols – there’s also 5 different animal statue symbols (the swan, tortoise, fish, frog and dragon). The dragon (which is gold) pays 1, 3 or 12 times your stake for 3, 4 or 5 across a payline.

There are also 2 wild symbols – there’s a normal wild which appears on reels 2 and 4 (it replaces all symbols mentioned above). Then you have the multiplier wild which shows up on reel 3 – when part of a win, your total is doubled (i.e. 2x wild multiplier).

Free Games feature

Look out for the golden gong scatter symbol as 3, 4 or 5, beginning from the leftmost reel, will give you a 5, 10 or 50 times stake payout as well as activate the Free Games feature. Beginning with 10 free spins, you can retrigger the feature indefinitely. More importantly, all low value royal symbols won’t appear on the reels meaning only higher values will make up the symbols for hopefully bigger wins.

Jackpot feature

The main attraction is the Jackpot feature – this can be triggered when a wild symbol lands on the 3 middle reels simultaneously. You then will see 12 coins which you need to pick from – they will reveal Mini, Minor, Major or Grand Jackpots. You need to match 3 coins to win that jackpot – here’s what they are worth:

  • Mini Jackpot = 5 x stake
  • Minor Jackpot = 20 x stake
  • Major Jackpot = progressive
  • Grand Jackpot = progressive

Phoenix Fortune thoughts

The Phoenix Fortune slot is a typical Chinese themed offering – simple in terms of design and gameplay, the double wild payouts can lead to 1,200 x stake wins on each spin or free spin. The bigger wins will come in the Jackpot feature as 2 jackpots are progressive.

However, Phoenix Fortune isn’t original or innovative in any way – just another slot to add to Novomatic’s extensive portfolio. I would suggest you try Spirits of the Valkyrie which looks good and offers 5,000 x stake wins in 1 of the features.
