It was during 2018 that an amazing 18 new NetEnt slots were launched and a promise was made that this amount was going to be much higher in 2019 with 30 to 35 new games. A great promise for all NetEnt fans out there, but I saw my life turning into one big NetEnt review. At the time, I had no clue what all these games were going to be about, but what I did know was that the Turn Your Fortune™ slot was going to be the very first new NetEnt slot of 2019. A very good start, I must admit and it made me less nervous thinking that over 30 games were going to be launched in 2019. All I could hope for, was that all future games were going to be as original as the Turn Your Fortune™ slot as this first new NetEnt slot of 2019 was going to be an enjoyable one with its innovative Fortune Wins mechanics.
What to expect from Turn Your Fortune™
Inspired by French Art Nouveau, the very first NetEnt slot launched in 2019 offers the feeling of golden opulence with its magnificent intricate decor. Besides that, I wouldn’t know how to describe this video slot as it’s not a standard slot game. Even the basics of the game aren’t standard with its 5 reels and 4 rows instead of the standard 5×3 layout.
And a distinctive layout is just the beginning as this game will be all about the Fortune Wins. These Fortune Wins, created by a 5 level sort of cylinder on the left side of the game, can go up to x200 during the Fortune Re-Spins and up to x2000 during Free Spins. This could be a feature attracting experienced players looking for a high volatility game as x2000 win in Free Spins can become very attractive.
However, when writing this review, it’s too soon to judge about the volatility of the game, so let’s stick to the facts. Like the fact that this game is offering very original slot mechanics while many slot features have been added as well.
Before I’m going into details when it comes to the slot features including Wilds, Fortune Re-Spins with Fortune Wins, and Free Spins with Fortune Wins, it’s my standard thing to tell you about the betting options first. Although there’s not so much to tell actually as the Turn Your Fortune™ slot is offering a minimum bet of 0.20 and a maximum bet of 200.00. Not very special and the same goes for the 10 bet levels and the 7 coin values available to create the perfect bet for you.
Turn Your Fortune™ slot features
As mentioned before, the Fortune Wins feature is what this video slot game is all about. Of course, there will be Re-Spins and Free Spins, but what you want the most, is to see that Fortune Win meter going up.
You’ll find the Fortune Wins feature activated during the main game, as well as during the Free Spins feature, but there are a few differences between the two. That doesn’t change the fact that we’re talking about a 5 level bonus game that can result in incredible Fortune Wins. You’ll always start with level 1 but during the Re-spins or during the Free Spins, you’ll have the opportunity to see the level going up for a higher Fortune Win. The one way to reach a higher level, is by collecting the right symbols while the key symbol completes your mission of moving up one level.
A Fortune Re-Spin will be activated when two Scatter symbols appear in combination with a bet line win during the main game. The symbol involved in the bet line win will be the collectable symbol. The symbols involved in the first win will be added to the Fortune Win meter straight away which will help the meter to go up. This is when a Re-Spin is activated as well. Reels will keep rolling as long as new collectable symbols appear and if they do, they’ll be added to the meter. Every five symbols will result in the meter going up for bigger Fortune Wins.
When the key symbol appears, the cylinder is turning and the amounts involved in the 5 different levels will go up instantly for bigger wins. It’s two-way traffic here as the collectable symbols and the key symbol will help you to create bigger wins.
If 3 Scatter symbols appear on the reels, the attractive Free Spins feature will be activated. Just before free spins start, you’ll be asked to give the Free Spins Wheel a spin. If the wheel stops, you find out how many free spins will be activated, the collectable symbol, and the level you’ll start the Free Spins feature with.
During the Free Spins feature in the Turn Your Fortune™ slot, you’ll be collecting all collectable symbols in order to fill up the meter. Every 10 symbols will fill up the meter by 10 and for every 20 symbols collected, you’ll be moving up one level.
During the Free Spins feature, each Scatter symbol will award an additional free spin and when all free spins have been used up and no new free spins have been awarded, the Fortune Win will be awarded and you’ll go back to the main game of the highly recommended Turn Your Fortune™ slot.
Usually mentioned first, I for once keep the Wild for the end as the features deserve all attention. The Wild does have a role to play but it isn’t responsible for a lot of action. It does what it always does which is substituting for most of the symbols, but in the Turn Your Fortune™ slot it’s certainly no main attraction, but it’s always welcome of course.
