Dr Fortuno is powered by Yggdrasil Gaming and comes with 5 reels 20 paylines. Playable from 10p to £100 a spin across all devices including smartphones and tablets, you head to Dr Fortuno’s travelling carnival. With a magic theme, it comes with free spins, the Wheel of Fortuno and a Fortuno Jackpot feature.
Visually, Dr Fortuno is rather good – as are all Yggdrasil Gaming slots. Set inside Dr Fortuno’s travelling carnival, this mysterious and magical offering has a creepy soundtrack. Symbols on the reels include 4 different coloured potion bottles as well as Dr Fortuno’s troupe of misfits – you will see Water Witch, Fire Head and the Night Twins which all appears 3-high. The latter is the most rewarding symbol with 3, 4 or 5 on a payline giving you 4, 6 or 20 times your stake.
Dr Fortuno himself is the wild which replaces all symbols as usual – he appears 3 symbols high. When he appears, he will nudge to fill the whole reel and trigger the Wheel of Fortuno feature when he’s part of a winning combination. You will begin with 1 spin on the Wheel of Fortuno but each Fortuno Wild that was part of your win will add an extra spin – for example, if you had 5 Fortune Wilds on the reels, you’d get 5 spins of the Wheel of Fortuno. Here, you spin the wheel to win the following:
- Chance to win the Jackpot
- The Jackpot
- Between 1 and 5 times your stake
- 2 more spins on the Wheel of Fortune
- 2x to 5x multiplier of the total spin
If you hit the Jackpot Chance field, the Jackpot field is unlocked – if you then hit this, the Jackpot is won. The amount won is shown to the left of the reel set and is progressive!
Dr Fortuno is all about the Free Spins feature – this is triggered by getting 3 or more top hat bonus symbols anywhere on the reels. Beginning with 10 free spins, 3, 4 or 5 bonus symbols will give you 1, 2 or 3 extra features:
- Low paying symbols removed from the reels
- 2x multiplier
- More Fortuno Wilds on the reels
- 5 or 10 additional free spins
- A high paying symbol transforms into a wild
- All 20 paylines pay from left to right and right to left (win both ways payouts)
Now, if you win the low paying symbols removed extra, all the potion symbols won’t appear. A 2x multiplier doubles your outcome. If you get more Fortuno Wilds on the reels, you will be able to trigger the Wheel of Fortuno feature more easily. 1 of the characters (Water Witch, Fire Head or the Night Twins) can also transform into a wild for even more wins – these transformed symbols just substitute for all symbols and don’t nudge.
Dr Fortuno looks superb – 1 of the best I’ve come across. The bigger wins will come in the Free Spins feature where you’d hope to benefit from the 2x multiplier, high value symbols becoming wild and more Fortuno Wilds on the reels. If you manage to fill the reels with wilds, you will pocket 400 times your total stake. Do this with the 2x multiplier and you could win 800 times your stake on each free spin.
Variance wise, Dr Fortuno is in the middle and has the right balance between win potential and gameplay – it does look terrific and offers the chance to win a progressive jackpot. As you’d expect, another great slot from Yggdrasil Gaming – I recommend you try some of their other superb titles with Dwarf Mine and Wolf Hunters my recommendations.
