Fortune Teller Delivers Mystic Slot Experience
The Play’n GO video slot title Fortune Teller plays up the aura of magic and mystery surrounding gypsy fortune tellers to the hilt. Under a portentous full moon in a dusky forest clearing, the gypsy caravan sits, bathed in the guttering light of its candle lanterns. Even within this brooding atmosphere, however, Fortune Teller uses a variety of deep, rich colours to hint at the good fortune that awaits.
The five reels are housed in a finely wrought frame of wood and brass, with colourful tabs down either side identifying the 20 pay lines. Players can vary the number of lines they play, and also adjust the bet per line, from 1 to 125 coins. As always, players who play all 20 pay lines, even if this requires them to reduce the bet per line, will see wins more often, although they may be smaller than those won at top stakes with fewer pay lines.
Impressively Designed Game Icons Catch the Eye
Play’n GO has put quite a bit of effort into making Fortune Teller attractive to look at. Even the poker symbols, 10 to A, have been designed in shiny, colourful stand-alone 3D letters and numerals. 10s, J’s and Qs win prizes of equal value for the same matches, as do K’s and A’s. The top prize in the poker icons is 150 credits for five Ks or A’s.
The designers got to add even more eye-catching flourishes in Fortune Teller’s theme-related icons. They are a lighted candle, a zodiac wheel, an all-seeing eye held up in the palm of a hand, and the raven-haired, tambourine-shaking gypsy Fortune Teller herself. For five matches on one pay line, these symbols win 250, 500, 500 or 1,000 credits, respectively.
Crystal Ball Wild Crackles with Energy
The gypsy’s crystal ball is the Fortune Teller Wild symbol, sparkling with an energetic discharge of purple energy as it forecasts a bright future. It has the standard slots Wild attribute of being able to replace any of the 9 ordinary symbols to complete winning combinations.
The Wild also wins additional prizes for matches with itself that run consecutively from Reel 1 on any pay line. For three, four or five matches, the Wild wins 25, 250 or 1,000 credits.
Two Scatter Bonuses to Activate
Fortune Teller includes two Scatter symbols in its icon line-up. The Free Spins Scatter is the Fortune Teller’s spooky black cat, which wins multipliers of the total spin bet if it occurs in two or more windows anywhere on the reels. For two, three, four or five matches, this multiplier is 2X, 3X, 30X or 300X, so it makes some substantial wins possible. Three or more Free Spins Scatters will also trigger a round of 10 free spins, during which the black cat icon serves as an extra Wild.
A hand of tarot cards bearing the word Bonus is the second Fortune Teller Scatter. Three or more in any position trigger the Tarot Bonus game, in which the player is shown a selection of face-down tarot cards on a new screen. The player turns over cards one by one, collecting the bonus credit prizes they conceal. The round ends when the player turns over a card to reveal the word Collect.
