Expect fireworks aplenty in Fortune Fest, a potentially explosive Chinese-themed slot powered by Red Tiger Gaming. This 5 reel, 10 payline game comes with random instant wins of up to 88x as well as a free spins feature where you can boost your wins with multipliers of up to 10x. Play from between 20p and £500 per spin.

Red Tiger Gaming usually puts plenty of effort into the design of its slots and Fortune Fest is among the best it has to offer. Set against a traditional Chinese street scene and flanked by firecrackers, the reels include lower value playing cards alongside 2 different firework symbols and a Chinese style gift box.

The wise old man is the game’s wild – land 3, 4 or 5 of these and you’ll pocket 50, 100 or 500 coins. All of the symbols, including the wild, can land fully stacked to further boost your chances of creating a winning combination.

Look out too for the Pick Win symbol (the red money envelope) – this triggers a random instant win bonus. Pick from the 3 envelopes to reveal a multiplier prize and hopefully a pick again. Keep on picking until you land a collect. Prizes of up to 88 times your stake can be lurking in these envelopes.

Fortune Fest also comes with a Free Spins feature which is triggered by landing 3 of the Free Spins symbol anywhere on the reels on the same spin. On each free spins, you’ll get a spin of the bonus wheel. This boosts that payout by a multiplier that can reach up to 10x.  You can also trigger further free spins here.

The sound and visuals on display in Fortune Fest are as good as you’ll find anywhere – the Chinese soundtrack bounces along and the atmosphere is enhanced by the sparkling firecrackers and exploding fireworks that herald big wins.

The features don’t quite match the visuals – the pick me a round is decent enough thanks to the big 88x prize on offer. The free spins aren’t bad either but they’re tricky to land though. We’d put the variance on the high side of medium. Expect some dry spells in between triggering the features.

When you do eventually find the free spins, the potential 10x multiplier means that Fortune Fest can live up to its name. If you like the theme, Thunderkick’s Esqueleto Explosivo is highly recommended.
