In the style of Golden Grimoire™ and Turn Your Fortune™, the Codex of Fortune™ slot offers another mystical game launched halfway 2021 at the NetEnt Casinos. Besides the style, this NetEnt slot also shares the proven slot mechanism of the Turn Your Fortune™ slot. It’s the brother from another mother, although, besides a few smaller changes, the Codex of Fortune™ slot and its older brother are very much alike.
If you ever played Turn Your Fortune™ before, you know what to expect from the Fortune Wins feature. The same goes for the Fortune Re-spins, another innovative slot feature in this mystical slot. These are two slot features to dig into, as the Wild and Free Spins in this game are rather common.
I know we’ve been there, done that, but there’s a reason NetEnt blew new life into an existing NetEnt slot. Everything is done for a reason. Perhaps the mystical slot never got the popularity it deserves for whatever reason. So while you keep reading about what is an existing NetEnt slot mechanism, do it with a fresh mind. Find out how this game deserves more popularity because of its exciting slot features.
Why the Codex of Fortune™ slot offers an existing slot mechanism?
With the acquisition of NetEnt in December 2020, Evolution had all the right to have a good look at the list of upcoming NetEnt slots. Right after the takeover, some of the upcoming games were either ditched or transferred to Red Tiger (part of NetEnt). Some games cancelled were already in development, but Evolution decided to ditch them anyway.
The Codex of Fortune™ slot was one of the very few games on the list of upcoming NetEnt slots that managed to stay around and I totally understand. Okay, it looks a lot like the Turn Your Fortune™ slot, but after all, the game deserves more popularity. Therefore, a boost in the form of a refreshing design isn’t a bad idea.
It’s not the first time we see this happening among the slot suppliers. Besides, take the 100+ video slot that all use the same Megaways engine like Dazzle Me Megaways™ and Twin Spin Megaways™.
Instead of a whole new theme and design, NetEnt decided to stick to the French Art Nouveau style with a hint of mystery. Of course, we also see the 5 reels, 4 rows and 40 bet lines back in the Codex of Fortune™ slot. The same goes for the slot mechanics in which you collect symbols from the reels and go up the coin win ladder.
Soon, I go into details when it comes to the Codex of Fortune™ slot features. These include Wilds, Fortune Re-Spins with Fortune Wins, and Free Spins with Fortune Wins for some good slot excitement. But what to expect from the betting options in this mystical slot?
With a minimum bet of 0.20 and a maximum bet of 200.00, the Codex of Fortune™ slot, I can recommend the slot to everybody who is able to spend more than 0.20 a bet. Video slot bets can go as low as 0.01 in some classic slots or in any game that doesn’t have fixed bet lines.
In Codex of Fortune™, 40 fixed bet lines make sure the bet won’t go lower than 0.20 which will attract the common type of online casino players. The 200.00 isn’t for everyone, but might attract some high rollers that are in for a medium to high volatility or interesting gameplay.
Codex of Fortune™ slot features
Featuring Wild substitutions, Free Spins and Re-Spins, the game seems to be rather common. It’s not! During the main game, you collect special key symbols allowing you to level up and progress further in your quest. Level up in the cryptic Codex of Fortune™ and multiply your wins!
There are three reasons why Codex of Fortune™ is a winner: Fortune Wins, Guaranteed Wins and Player Engagement.
Fortune Re-spins & Save the Key feature
Two Scatter symbols that appear in combination with a bet line win during the main game activates a Fortune Re-Spin in the Codex of Fortune™ slot.
The moment you activate a Re-Spin or Free Spins, a guaranteed win of x5 your bet in Re-Spins and a guaranteed win of x10 your bet in Free Spins become reality. It’s also Step 1 on the Fortune Ladder.
The symbols involved in the first win are added to the Fortune Win meter straight away. This helps the meter to go up. This is when a Re-Spin starts as well. Reels keep rolling as long as new collectable symbols appear. If they do, you see them added to the meter. Every five symbols will result in the meter going up for bigger wins.
If you won a key during the Fortune Re-spin, you’ll be asked if you want to keep the Key for when you activate Free Spins. If you do, the level of the Fortune Meter drops back to 1 and the key is saved for the Free Spins feature.
When you activate the Free Spins, you’ll be asked if you want to use the key. If you don’t save the key, you receive the Fortune Win as collected during the Fortune Re-spin feature.
Activated during the main game, as well as during the Free Spins feature, Fortune Wins are one of the most important aspects of the Codex of Fortune™ slot.
Fortune Wins are invented to give the thrill modern video slots packed with features are so famous for. It’s all about climbing that Ladder!
Fill the meter with your collected key symbols that land on the reels during the Fortune Re-Spins or during the Free Spins feature.
There are 5 levels of wins, with each level consisting of 5 steps. Climb higher, and higher, and higher in this 5 level bonus game that can result in incredible Fortune Wins.
If 3 Scatter symbols appear on the reels, the attractive Free Spins feature opens. Just before free spins start, you give the Free Spins Wheel a spin. Not only to find out how many (7-13) Free Spins you receive, but also what the collectable symbol will be. And last, you find out the number of additional keys used to level up the Fortune Wins.
During the Free Spins feature in the Codex of Fortune™ slot, you collect all collectable symbols in order to fill up the meter. The special 10+ symbol adds 10 symbols to the meter straight away, while every 20 symbols collected, you move up one level.
During the Free Spins feature, each Scatter symbol award an additional free spin. When you finish the Free Spins feature, and no new free spins appear, you receive the Fortune Win and you go back to the main game.
