Departing its usual favoured location of imperial China, Red Tiger Gaming heads deep beneath the waves in Ocean Fortune. It’s a 5 reel, 20 payline slot that comes with stacked wilds and a free spins feature where the reels include Gold Super Symbols that offer the potential for even bigger wins. Play on your desktop, tablet or mobile device from between 20p and £500 per spin.
The visuals in Ocean Fortune are pretty basic for a Red Tiger Gaming powered title – set against an underwater backdrop and overlooked by a pair of mermaids, the plain white reels include 6 brightly coloured gemstone symbols as well as a necklace and a crown made of sea shells. 5 of the crown on a payline will get you 160 coins. The standard symbols are joined by the mermaid wild which can land fully on any reel and award payouts of up to 500 coins.
The pearl shell is the scatter – landing 3 of these triggers the Free Spins feature. Click on the shells to reveal how many free spins you’ll receive. The free spins are played out on a new set of reels. Set above the waves in a secluded cove, all of the lower value gemstones are removed from the reels.
This leaves only the higher value starfish, necklace and crown symbols. They’re joined by a wild which appears fully stacked during the free spins. Look out for the Gold Super Symbols which will boost your win potential considerably. You can re-trigger more free too if you’re lucky enough to land 3 pearl shells again.
We found the variance here on the high side of medium – the best chances of winning a bumper jackpot will come via the free spins feature where the stacked wild and Gold Super Symbols can quickly have an impact. The bonus feature isn’t the easiest to trigger though so expect plenty of lengthy spells when your bankroll will sink to the bottom of the ocean.
The design may be a little underwhelming but the opportunities afforded by the Free Spins feature make Ocean Fortune a playable slot. Land a good complement of stacked wilds with the Super Gold Symbols and you could be swimming away with plenty of Ocean Fortune. If the theme is appealing, Novomatic’s Lord of the Ocean is highly recommended.
