Fortune Charm is a very traditional looking Chinese-themed slot from Red Tiger Gaming. Played using a 5 reel, 243 ways to win game engine, it comes with magic boxes that transform into the same matching symbol as well as a free spins feature. Play on all devices from between 20p and £500 per spin.

Games from Red Tiger Gaming have a very definitive look and that’s true of Fortune Charm. The reels are dominated by red and gold. You’ll see lower value, Asian-style A to 10 symbols spinning around the reels alongside higher value objects that match the Chinese theme.

They include pendants, coins and goldfish. The best paying symbol is the jade dragon. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these on adjacent reels and you’ll win 1.5, 4 or 10 times your stake. Look out too for the bright red phoenix which is the game’s wild. It doesn’t offer any pays but does replace all the standard symbols. There are a couple of notable extras on offer in Fortune Charm:

Fortune Charms feature – this triggers whenever the Fortune Charm boxes land on the reels. All the boxes transform into the same matching symbol and a new payout consideration is made. They can come with multipliers of up to 5x too. If they turn into 1 of the higher value symbols, or better still a wild, the results can be spectacular.

Free Spins feature – this round is triggered by landing 3 of the pearl scatter on the same spin. You’ll then spin a wheel to see how many free spins you’ll get. This can be between 5 and 50. When the Fortune Boxes land during this feature, they stay on the reels, moving position with each free spin.

At first glance, there’s nothing too special about Fortune Charm. The sound and visuals are pretty typical for a slot from this developer with the Asian theme. Trigger the free spins round and things can really explode into life. Land a good haul of free spins and get the Fortune Boxes early on and the results can be explosive. We managed to turn 20 free spins into a haul of over 300 times our stake.

The Chinese theme is hugely popular but the feature round here offers something a little unusual and potentially exciting. If you fancy a volatile take on a classic genre, then Fortune Charm fits the bill rather nicely. Alternatively, Esqueleto Explosivo from Red Tiger Gaming is superb.
