Wins of Fortune is offered by Quickspin and it’s one of those pokies where you get to play with symbols that are inspired by the legends of China. Some of the famous characters from its stories are major symbols on these reels, and you will notice among them characters with blue skin, pigs dressed as farmers, emperors and even a monkey man.
There is an unusual look here, thanks to the way the reels are formed, with three to five symbols, the size increasing as you go towards the right side. The lesser symbols are the gemstones, all of the same size and shape, but coming in different colors.
The background gives you another clue concerning the origin of the theme, showing you a beautiful bay, but also Chinese buildings, which have the typical roof that you see in temples from that country. It’s a well crafted design, and the only ones that I didn’t enjoy were the gems icons.
Quickspin is a young company, a developer from Scandinavia that is capable of designing some very fun pokies for the online market.
They’ve done so multiple times in the past, and I’m always curios when I hear that they released a new game, since I know that they’re always offering unique features and high quality graphics.
How To Play It
The game uses ways to win, a number of them that can vary from regular spins to re-spins. You only have to worry about the total bet though, the one that starts from $0.20 and can be taken as high as $100. The paytable changes to reflect the wager that is currently set, so you don’t need to try and figure out how much each line gets.
The game will form combinations of symbols by getting them on neighboring reels, starting with the 1st one. The reels get only 76 ways to win usually, but this number can go to 90, 154, 164 and even up to 259 ways, during re-spins.
The feature that you will find easy to recognize and understand is the simple wild, something that I’m surprised if I don’t find in a pokie, rather than the other way around. The wild is a simple feature in this case, a symbol that you get as a substitute and which can take the place of any other, without exceptions. It’s the only feature symbol that the game offers and it is a very simple one.
The thing that makes this pokie truly special is the feature called Respin On Any Win. As it says, whenever you get a winning combination in Wins of Fortune, there will be a respin triggered automatically. Each new respin that you get, as part of the same initial round, will add extra symbols to the reels that have fewer than the maximum of five. Eventually, you end up with a layout of 5×5 reels and with the maximum of 259 ways to win.
There is a Super Respin feature as well, which you get once you’ve gone through four respins. The winning symbols will remain in place here, and only the other positions will spin.
Since you get respins for every single win that you land, the rewards tend to have low values, the best one reaching $250.
Wins of Fortune manages to give us the right design and the features to make it a memorable pokie. Quickspin has done a great job here.
