Stormcraft Studios make the steampunk-inspired Fortunium slot in conjunction with Microgaming. Steampunk is an increasingly popular genre for casino games suppliers and has already inspired titles like Steam Tower and Steampunk Nation. In the strange world of Fortunium, everything is powered by steam rather than electricity, and much of the imagery is Victorian in style. However, there’s nothing dated about the gameplay, which revolves around five reels and forty fixed paylines and uses Mystery Symbols to help increase the regularity of wins. There’s also a Free Spins Bonus, and a Win Booster Feature, the latter of which gives you the option to remove low-value symbols from the reels for 50% extra per spin.
You can discover the Fortunium slot game at Mad About Slots for as little as 10p, but if you play with the max bet of £125 per-spin, you’ll be able to take a shot at the massive £100,000 top pay award.
The slot uses five reels and five rows of symbols, so the playing area takes up more screen space than usual. The game’s background is an impressively realistic mountainous landscape which is flecked with gold, and blue skies with a thin layer of cloud. The paytable symbols range from the four suits (N.B., Spades, Clubs, Hearts, and Diamonds) of a standard playing card deck, airships, nerf guns, and treasure chests to the two main characters in the Fortunium slot game (Victoria and Maximillian) and a compass. While all of the standard symbols can appear stacked on the reels, only Victoria (an acclaimed explorer) and Maximillian (an industrious inventor with a golden eagle) can appear super-stacked (i.e. up to five-rows-high).
In the Fortunium slot, the compass-like symbol with a “W” in its centre is the wild symbol, and it can replace all symbols bar scatters to help make wins.
Three or more of the glass sphere scatter symbol on the same spin trigger the Free Spins Feature.
Before we look at the Free Spins Feature, we must explain how the Mystery Symbols feature works. When you spin the reels, you’ll often encounter question mark symbols which open to display randomly-chosen wilds or low, mid or high-value symbols. You’ll also see a Win Booster button on the left-hand-side of the screen, which you can opt to use for an extra 50% of your total bet-per-spin, and it ensures that the Mystery Symbols can reveal only high-value symbols and wilds. When three or more scatters trigger the Free Spins Bonus of the Fortunium slot, you get ten free spins, but you also earn one extra free spin each time a new scatter appears on the reels. The Bonus also comes with Mystery Reels (N.B., full reels of Mystery Symbols), and depending on how many triggering scatters there are, you get one, two or three Mystery Reels on each free spin.
The unusual special features in the slot make it a brilliant game to play, and once you’ve tried it, we recommend checking out NetEnt’s Warlords: Crystals of Power slot for further chances to win generous cash prizes.
