Full of Eastern Promise
The reels of the game are set inside a fortune tellers hut. Purple curtains hang from the beams and there are soft and fluffy cushions placed around the floor. You are invited to take a seat and try to see what may lay instore for you. Symbols that can be found on the reels are a golden goblet, sun, trees, water, fortune teller, Queen of Wands logo and card values of 9 through to A.
The lower of the reels offers various buttons which allow you to do tasks such as view the paytable, adjust your paylines, adjust your bet, play max bet, play using the autoplay feature and spin or turbo spin. Your wins and total bet are situated to the middle of the control panel, allowing you to keep track of your gameplay.
To trigger the non-progressive jackpot, you’ll need to tempt 5 of a kind of the fortune teller symbols onto your active payline. A 1,000x multiplier jackpot will be awarded when you do this – but the more you bet, the bigger value that 1,000x multiplier becomes.
Five of a kind of the golden goblets awards 400x your stake with the elements offering a 250x multiplier.
You won’t be surprised to learn that the wild symbol can replace other symbols on the reels. The fortune teller is the wild and yes, it does award the non-progressive jackpot, but it also creates winning combinations where they may have been missed, by substituting for all other symbols (bar scatter).
Queen of Wands is the scatter symbol and should they fall on reels 2, 3 and 4 – 8 free spins will be awarded. During your free spins, more wilds will be added to the reels. Three more scatters in view and you’ll trigger an additional 8 free spins. The great thing about these free spins is you can trigger them indefinitely.
