Theme and Graphics
The slot was released by manufacturer Microgaming in 2018. It’s a spectacular and eye-catching machine that focuses on the adventures of a fantastic pair – the inventors Victoria and Maximilian. The plot is complemented by interesting bonus features and mysterious symbols.
The design of the gaming machine is quite unusual. Thus, there are five reels with five rows of symbols in the background of an industrial city. On the 40 lines, which can be activated independently, appear different characters. Some of them take up the whole column.
The specific theme and unfamiliar design are sure to cause conflicting customer feedback. In any case, the game is very high quality and deserves your attention.
Pros: stacked icons, beautiful design, interesting free spins, unusual bonus mode
Cons: not very spectacular animation, awkward paytable.
Gameplay and Paylines
Fortunium has five reels, forty fixed strips and twenty-five icon boxes arranged in a 5×5 grid.
The bet is taken per spin. It is a multiple of ten. Twenty-five levels are provided. Denominations of conventional coins – from one to fifty cents. The total amount at stake can be from ten cents to one hundred and twenty-five dollars.
The user can activate Win Booster mode, increasing the rate by half (up to a maximum of 187.50). Its benefits are discussed in the section on bonuses.
In the slot machine “Fortunium” involved stacked base picture, joker, scatter, “mystery” symbol, Win Booster and free spins with additional prizes.
Paying chains are formed on the active lines of three, four or five of the same element. They must be placed from left to right, starting with the first column. Sequences can be several in one spin, but only on different strips.
Winnings are calculated on the bet and multipliers assigned to all possible combinations. Multipliers range from x1 to x200.
Up to a hundred thousand coins can be won in a single spin.
In the columns appear card suits, an airship, weapons, a jewel chest and the main characters of the slot: Victoria and Maximilian. Identical elements are dropped in long vertical stacks.
Special symbols are also available:
• Wild (round safe gate) is present on all the reels. It forms combinations with maximum odds and acts as a joker, replacing simple pictures.
• Scatter (container with green substance) brings winnings, appearing in any position. They are calculated on the total bet. From three scatters start the free spins.
• Mystery Symbol (question mark) appear in very long chains. They turn into identical icons. These can be any of the standard icons or jokers.
The following is a summary of the conditions for participating in the prize rounds:
• Free Spins – Three, four or five scatters trigger ten free spins. They take place on house credits. The bet does not change. In Free Spins, one, two or three reels are fully occupied by “mystery” symbols. The number of such columns depends on the number of scatters that started the bonus.
• Win Booster – If you enable this mode, Mystery Symbols hide only high-paying icons and jokers. Accordingly, the combinations are much more numerous and the winnings are larger.
