Mistress of Fortune is a new Asian style slot machine that has obviously been inspired by anime cartoons with its mixture of action and wistful beauty. The reel are set over a bunch of blossoming flowers as petals bluster in the wind, catching the light in a dramatically eye-catching fashion. Upon the reels themselves, spinners will come across a medley of intensely powerful symbols, with four orbs which represent the four elements – earth, wind, fire and water.
The natural element of the game is spectacularly captured by the visual effects of the slot machine. And, even though the graphics are rendered as two dimensional illustrations, the game looks just as aesthetically pleasing as any contemporary 3D slot. Accompanying the stunning appearance of the game are some traditional oriental sound effects, helping spinners to transport themselves to a far away land of exotic wonders.
Stack the Wins
While this game certainly strikes a powerful note from a visual point of view, players may be a little bit disappointed to learn that the low to mid volatility slot machine has some relatively small payouts. The thing is that the game tends to pay out little and often, with a top line bet multiplier jackpot that is capped at just 500x. That is far from being a big prize for finding five wild icons in a row, although these wild icons do appear stacked on the reels meaning that they have the potential to trigger multiple paylines at any one time.
The game doesn’t disappoint when it comes to the range of bets available to play with. If you are a casual punter who is just after a few speculative spins then you can play with a total wager that is as small as 0.40 credits. On the other hand, if you want to go all out with some high rolling play, you can place as much as 400 credits on a single spin. This game has a RTP (return to player) percentage of 94.95%.
Fortune Lies in the Bonus
As well as a wild icon that will replace other symbols to complete wins, Mistress of Fortune also features a dragon scatter symbol. This fiery beast may not be the most friendly looking creature, but it has the power to be very rewarding since three on the reels in any position with pay back the total bet from spin as well as triggering 5 “Fortune Free Spins”. During this free games feature, punters will find that there is an extra symbol included on the reels – depicted by the Mistress of Fortune herself – which will randomly reveal a new symbol.
Other than that, this slot machine doesn’t offer anything else in terms of bonus gameplay features, whicj is a bit of a shame considering the fact that 5 free spins is far from being a particularly exciting extra element. The game doesn’t offer a gamble feature, either, meaning that punters will have to settle for the prizes that they win during the base game spins.
The oriental slot machine theme is one of the most popular trends in the contemporary market. With more and more Asian countries opening up to the idea of online gambling, there is a bigger demand for games with an Eastern feel to them. Some other recent releases from Blueprint Gaming which are inspired by the Far East include Super Lucky Frog, Lion Festival and Wu Xing. The latter of those games has a particular relation to this game since it focuses on the Five Elements of Ancient Chinese philosophy.
Worth a Punt?
Mistress of Fortune is an eye-catching slot machine that takes punters on an Asian adventure to discover the four elements as well as some wins worth up to 5,000 coins. Admittedly, the low to medium variance slot machine isn’t going to blow you away with any big prizes or bonus features, but this game is more about the stunning display than the quality of the gameplay.
