Planet Fortune Slot
Planet Fortune slot game is a brand new 4×5-reel video slot from Swedish iGaming developers Play’n GO slots. Joining a bumper season for new slots at the start of 2018, Planet Fortune may be one of the most exciting. It doesn’t have the sheer production value that Yggdrasil Gaming’s Ozwin’s Jackpots possesses, or the Microgaming marketing might of JFTW’s ubiquitous, Deco Diamonds slot. So what does it have?
Planet Fortune Slot Background
Planet Fortune has a retro futuristic look; think of Science Fiction from the 60s. There are bouncy metallic dresses as well as a charming kitschiness to the design. The slot also has an awesome synth-driven score, also reminiscent of the Star Trek era. Rather than being a total throwback, the melody does showcase some modern pop music sensibilities. This is all part of Planet Fortune’s charm; the blend of nostalgia and science fiction feels very much of the moment. It feels very contemporary.
The Planet Fortune slot has 40 pay lines from left to right and a possible maximum jackpot of 2,500x your bet. But, what does that equal in real terms? Obviously, bet minimums and maximums can depend on the limits that the operator has set. On the version we trialled, players could bet anywhere from £0.20 – £100. Therefore, you could be looking at a max jackpot of £25,000 on the version we were playing.
The slot has a few nifty features during the base gameplay. For example, 2 or 3 reels next to each other can conglomerate and form what are known as mega symbols. This can happen on any regular spin. Either they can form a 3×3 or a 2×2, which can lead to some rather spectacular prizes. This is known as Magnetic Mayhem. You can also get stacked symbols which sees character or item symbols line up in “stacks” of 2, 3, or 4 on the reels.
But, there’s an even better way to win big!
Planet Fortune Slot Free Spins
In the base game, when 3 or more of the Robot Revolution wild symbols appear on the reels in any configuration, this will trigger the Planet Fortune Free Spins Round. If you make it, you will be rewarded with 10 free spins. During the Free spins round, the music amps up to a whole new level of pulse-racing excitement.
Perhaps the most important feature is that the wild symbols which triggered the free spins remain sticky on the reels. After every free spin, the robots remain and move a reel to the left. Quite often, more wilds will appear as well and thus will also remain sticky on the reels.
This thrilling free spins round can lead to some really generous wins and is certainly worth sticking around for. It very much forms the crux of the game.
Planet Fortune Slot Symbols
First, you have the green robot revolution wilds. Apart from their function as scatter symbols, they also substitute for all other symbols. Bear in mind, when you have triggered the free spins round, then the robots turn red and angry. But you won’t be. Their misfortune could be your big win!
The other symbols include Astro Adam and Extragalactic Eve – bet you weren’t expecting biblical references in a brand-new slot game. Finally, you have diamonds and crystals and final the A, K, Q, J and 10 to round out the less valuable symbols.
