Fortune Day is a 5 reel, 20 payline slot powered by Playtech. Playable from 20p per spin across desktop, mobile and tablet devices, it has a lucky Irish theme and rewards you for every consecutive day you play it – the innovative title gives you more free spins the more days you play.
Aesthetically, it has a typical Irish luck feel to it as it has a lush, green meadow as its backdrop – symbols on the reels include golden shamrocks, golden acorns and golden beetles. There are also Celtic style playing card symbols (A, K, Q, J and 10).
Look out for the leprechaun which is the wild symbol – it substitutes for all symbols except the scatter an free games symbol. The wild is also the highest value symbol rewarding you with 500 times your stake (or 10,000 times your line stake) if you manage to get 5 on a payline.
When it comes to features, this unique game is all about the Lucky Free Games feature. Look out for the free games pot of gold coins symbol which is the scatter – when it appears simultaneously on reels 1 and 5, you will access the feature.
Now, the number of free spins you can win increases with every consecutive days you play – it begins at 8 free spins at day 1, then 10 free spins for day 2, 12 free spins for day 3, 15 free spins for day 4 and finally 18 free spins for day 5. If you get the scatters on reels 1 and 5 during the feature, you will retrigger the feature – there’s up to 36 free spins on day 5 for example.
Before the free spins play out, you need to pick 1 of the 5 pots to reveal your multiplier – these vary between 3x and 8x. Fortune Day offers you the chance to get up to 36 free spins (on day 5) with a whopping 8x multiplier if you’re lucky – not bad at all.
I quite like Fortune Day – there are plenty of other Irish luck themed offerings out there but this game rewards you the more you play. Variance wise, it’s in the middle with the bigger wins naturally coming in the Free Games feature – I’ve had wins of over 820 times my stake when I benefitted from a 6x multiplier on day 4 (as I got 30 free spins). If you like the theme, I also recommend Rainbow Riches Reels of Gold by Barcrest which combines the iconic classic with WMS’ Colossal Reels technology.
