There’s a basic design with heaps of calm thrown in, thanks to the relaxing sounds that accompany the spinning of the reels. The fish is synonymous with Feng Shui, so that’s why there is a relaxing soundtrack pumped into the game.
Surrounding the reels is a deep red design with embossed lilies, this is designed to look like a screen or wallpaper. Each of the reels are separated by golden pillars and the paylines are shown in various bright colours to the left and right of the machine. The layout of the game is standard and what we’ve come to expect from Casino Technology, there is an easy to navigate and understand control panel to the lower of the reels allowing you to select your bet and view your current balance, bet and last win.
With Fortune Fish being an oriental themed slot, you will find the following symbols on the reels; golden fish money pot, temple, colourful dragon, golden coins, golden hat, vase, tea cup and tea pot. With symbols like that, it’s as if you are being invited to afternoon tea at a palace.
Pot of Wins
Spinning the reel can offer up some superb cash prizes, so if you were to bet maximum stakes and spin in five of a kind of the temple symbols, you would trigger that eye-watering 250,000 coin non-progressive jackpot. The second highest payout on the reels is the golden fish money pot – we would have thought that this would’ve been the jackpot symbol – but no. Five of the golden fish money pots and you will trigger a 20,000 coin non-progressive jackpot.
The dancing dragon will certainly have you up and dancing with a 10,000 coin payout, whilst all remaining symbols offer between 2,000 and 4,000 coins for matching 5 on your payline.
Basic Slot Features
By choosing to play the Fortune Fish slot machine, you will only benefit from wilds, scatters and a gamble feature. The wild symbol does what it normally does. It replaces all other symbols on the reels (bar the scatter) to help you complete winning paylines. The wild is considered to be an important symbol on the reels because it offers wins when you least expect it.
Now, the scatter is the temple symbol and this awards the non-progressive jackpot. The scatter has no other benefit – in other Casino Technology slot games, this symbol would trigger free spins, but not here sadly.
Double Up is the infamous gamble feature that can be found with the vast majority of Casino Technology slot games. Should you trigger a win on the reels of less than 10x your stake, you will initiate the gamble feature. The orange button to the left of the control panel will flash and this is what you press if you want to try and win more money. The deck of cards will be placed upon your screen, guess the colour suit of the next card and you’ll double your initial win. If you are feeling really lucky, you could try to guess the suit of the next card to quadruple your original win.
Fishing for Compliments
Fortune Fish is a medium to high variance slot machine with very limited features on offer, but limited features doesn’t mean you won’t have an enjoyable experience.
The big wins come during the base game because there are no features on offer, but you may be spinning a while before triggering them. Graphics and sounds are superb and allow your mind to wander into the heart of Asia.
