Rings of Fortune is a progressive jackpot slot from Novomatic. With 5 reels and 10 paylines, it can be played across desktop, mobile and tablet devices from 10p to £50 a spin. The game has a magical feel to it as you are entrusted by the wise Wizard to find a ring which then decides the fate of the land and holds the secret to a fabled treasure. You get to embark on a journey through dark forests as you come across elf residents and find the golden gem.

Set against a backdrop with a medieval castle, the graphics are rather basic. The Wizard is the wild and the most valuable symbol as 5 on a payline will reward you with 2,500 times your line stake. The scatter (the golden ring) is just as important as 5 gives you the same amount.

However, if you get 3 or more ring scatters anywhere on the reels, you will play the Free Games feature and start with 15 free spins. Look out for the Wizard wild symbol during the feature as they are held in position for 1 free spin as well as expanding to cover the whole reel. You can trigger a further 15 free spins, by getting 3 or more scatters, with your potential total at 30.

Rings of Fortune is a progressive jackpot game – if you get 15 Wizard wilds (or 5 expanded Wizard wilds) on the reels during the Free Games feature, you will trigger the progressive jackpot. If playing at maximum stakes (£50), you will win the full jackpot on offer – if playing any lower, the jackpot is granted proportionally.

I found Rings of Fortune to be a medium to high variance with big wins possible in the Free Games feature mainly – the progressive jackpot is obviously hard to win but the expanding wilds in the feature is where the big wins will come from. I’ve managed to get 4 wilds before (2 in 1 spin which held and 2 in the next) which resulted in a 760 times stake win.

If you like wizards, you have to try Wizard of Oz Ruby Slippers by WMS which is now (as of March 2016) available to play on mobile and tablet devices. Alternatively, Spin Sorceress by NextGen Gaming is also very good.
