Tiles of Fun
Slots are meant to spin, but Red Tiger Gaming clearly didn’t get the memo. In Persian Fortune, the symbols appear as tiles which fall off the screen when you hit the spin button. It’s a neat way of animating the conventional spinning sequence and it lends the game a certain individuality, differentiating it – if only slightly – from the countless other Persian slots doing the rounds.
Your current balance is displayed on the top left of the screen, while audio and full screen buttons are located on the top right. The remaining game controls can be found beneath the reels, which are set out on a 5×3 layout.
The total stake can be adjusted from 0.20 all the way up to 500, though the number of reels (RTG doesn’t specify how many there are) remain constant.
The autoplay feature on Persian Fortune is comprehensive to say the least. Set the number of auto spins at 10, 20, 50 or 100. Set a loss limit of anywhere from 5,000 to 5 million. Stop if a single win exceeds a value of your choosing, or set it to stop upon hitting the jackpot or activating the bonus feature.
Shuffle the Tiles
Spin the reels – or rather shuffle the tiles – and Persian Fortune comes to life in a series of chirps and wand-waving ‘thrumms’. It all sounds very Disney, no surprise given that the game is styled in a manner that’s strongly reminiscent of Aladdin. The sound effects are probably best muted.
Thanks to the animations, which include gold sparkle effects that encircle major wins on the reels, you’ll have no trouble identifying winning combos, even with the audio off.
Plenty of Ways to Win
There’s a lot of ways to win at Persian Fortune, with some interesting bonuses included. There’s the Chain Reaction Bar, for example, which will see you move up a multiplier level with every win. This is displayed to the right of the reels, where your current multiplier level is illuminated, ranging from 1x all the way up to 8x.
Look out for the treasure chest bonus, which is triggered when you land 3 or more of the treasure chest symbols anywhere on the reels. There are some major prizes to be won at this stage, with different colours of gemstones piling on multipliers.
Other highlights to look out for in the game are a magical frame effect that can randomly appear around certain symbols. If the symbol within it becomes part of a win, the symbol will subsequently be converted into a wild symbol that can appear anywhere on the reels.
There are regular tiles in Persian Fortune and then there are mega tiles. These are every bit as large as their name would imply, displacing adjacent tiles due to their oversized 2×2 or 3×3 dimensions. Any symbol can be granted the mega treatment, infusing it with added powers.
Even the wild symbol, played by a seductive Persian woman, can manifest as a mega tile. As always, wild will substitute for any of the regular playing symbols, turning near-misses into unfettered wins.
Persian Fortune Summed Up
Persian Fortune is a well-designed slot from Red Tiger Gaming that’s full of features. Mega tiles and unique animations help to make this 5-reel slot extremely fun to play.
Don’t let the clichéd symbols and generic theme fool you: Persian Fortune is a highly entertaining slot that’s refreshingly different.
