Fortuna Gold: Slot Overview

For an industry with such a focus on fortune and so reliant on luck, it's surprising we don't bump into the goddess Fortuna more often. According to Wikipedia, Fortuna is the personification of luck, and the goddess of fortune from Roman belief, who retains a presence in Italian culture through phrases such as 'La [dea] fortuna è cieca', 'Luck [goddess] is blind'. This brings us to Fortuna Gold, an online slot from Fantasma Games that shines a spotlight on the Roman Goddess as she is accompanied by a coin collect feature, a coin avalanche feature which sounds intriguing, jackpot prizes, and a free spins round.

As a Roman mythology-type slot, players probably expect to see columns, marble, and cloudy spaces of the kind which Fortuna Gold provides. It has a look similar to Thunderkick's Midas Golden Touch, which makes sense since there was a lot of crossover between Ancient Greek and Ancient Roman beliefs. Architecture, too, and Fortuna Gold lays on a pleasant scene, harmonious in its arrangement of visual items.

Reflecting the ideal of symmetry further, Fortuna Gold's 6-reel game grid is arranged in a 4-5-5-5-5-4 symbol pattern. It does not use paylines but rather a ways-to-win system, where winning symbols can land in any row as long as they land on consecutive reels from the leftmost side of the grid onwards. This system creates 10,000 ways to win in what is a medium volatile slot, with an RTP of 96%. When picking a stake, the options are 20 c to $/€1,000 a pop.

From the top of the paytable downwards, Fortuna Gold has 3 character symbols as its high pays, 3 gems as its medium pays, and Q, K, A as its low pays. Hitting a 6-matching symbol combination awards 1x the bet for the lows, 1.5x for the mids, and 2.5 to 5x the bet for the high-pay symbols. In the base game, wilds may land on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5, substituting for all regular symbols in win evaluations.

Fortuna Gold: Slot Features

Fortuna Gold slot - Fortuna Coin Avalanche feature

As for features, it's time to inspect Fortuna Gold's Coin Collect feature, jackpot prizes, Fortuna Coin Avalanche, free spins, Scatter Boost bet mode and feature buys.

Coin Collect

Coin symbols land on reels 2 to 5 in the base game and in the Fortuna Coin Avalanche, carrying values of 0.25 to 25 times the bet. Coins can land on all reels in free spins. Collect symbols may land on the leftmost and rightmost reel in the base game. When Coin symbols and a Collect symbol are in view at the same time, the Coin values are awarded.

Jackpot Prizes

Jackpots can be won from the free spins round or the Furtuna Coin Avalanche. The values are 10x, 50x, 200x, 1,000x, or 5,000x for the Mini, Minor, Major, Mega, or Grand, respectively.

Fortuna Coin Avalanche

Landing 2 Collect symbols in the base game triggers the Fortuna Coin Avalanche feature. The feature is played on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5, with the other outer 2 reels removed. Non-Coin symbols are also removed, and the round starts. Only Coin symbols or blanks may land, and blanks are removed between Avalanches. The feature continues until no new Coin symbol Avalanches in or when all positions are filled. Filling a row with Coin symbols unlocks the corresponding Jackpot. At the end of the feature, Coin values and the highest achieved Jackpot are paid out.

Free Spins

Landing 4 scatter symbols on reels 2-5 in the base game triggers 10 free spins. Each position becomes an individual spinning reel, landing only blanks, Coins, Jackpot symbols, or Thunder symbols. Each position has a persistent multiplier that starts at x1 and can be increased up to x5. The value of Coins is multiplied by the position multiplier before being paid out. The multiplier of a position where a Coin landed is increased by +1 at the end of the spin. Should a Thunder symbol hit, the multipliers of a random number of positions are increased.

Hitting 4 scatter symbols on reels 2-5 awards +5 extra free spins, and free spins can be reactivated up to 4 times. To get your hands on the Jackpots in free spins requires landing the Jackpot symbol. The first Jackpot symbol unlocks the Mini, and each Jackpot symbol after that unlocks the next Jackpot Prize. At the end of free spins, the biggest achieved Jackpot is paid out.

Scatter Boost Bet Mode and Feature Buys

Activating the Scatter Boost mode increases the chance of triggering free spins by a factor of 2.06. Doing so increases the bet by 25% and has an RTP of 96.19%. Players can also buy the Fortuna Coin Avalanche for 40x the bet or free spins for 80x the bet. Both have an RTP of 96.36%.

Fortuna Gold: Slot Verdict

So, does playing a slot featuring a pixelated version of a fortune goddess provide more luck? Hmm, the cold steel of mathematics no doubt cuts through all that, but it was good to see an unfamiliar character up on the screen. It makes a nice change from the ongoing Hades or Zeus slots, which continually pour forth onto the gambling market. On the subject of market, it feels like Fortuna Gold aims itself at the masses rather than looking to cater to gamblers who prefer tightly wound, massive potential, and prickly-to-the-touch coin collect-type slots. It also feels like it should do quite well amongst its target audience, too, thanks to its pleasant artwork and varied selection of features.

Other plus points for those in Fortuna Gold's scope are the relatively reasonably priced bonus buys. They should come in handy for those struggling to patiently keep a lid on their excitement, too, since free spins have a hit frequency of 1 in 320, which isn't super frequent. Not sure about the frequency of the Fortuna Coin Avalanche feature, though. This Fantasma Games has not provided. Max win has been, however, and the 5,542x the bet figure should be enough of a plump red cherry on top to satisfy prospective punters.

In wrapping up, Fortuna Coin Avalanche was an alright game to test run (yeap, that was the third time the word 'pleasant' has been used in the review), which might not light the scene on fire like Vulcan's forge, but it's got some decent ideas in it for gamblers in the mood to take on a mid-tier coin collect slot.

Fair

Fortuna Gold won’t light the scene on fire but it’s got some decent ideas in it for gamblers in the mood to take on a mid-tier coin collect slot.
