Fields of Fortune slot review (Playtech)
Fields of Fortune is an enjoyable online Playtech slot, with two fun free spin bonuses and a unique Power Scatter function – for more free spin bonuses
Playtech is one of the world’s biggest slots providers, and their games have proven to be especially popular amongst UK casino players.
Fields of Fortune has 25 paylines and 5 reels and is set against the rural fields’ backdrop in the countryside. We hope you like carrots, parsnips and other veggies because there sure are a lot of them in this slot game.
The variance is medium, and the payout rate is reasonable at 96.16% – 96.22%.
Fields of Fortune gameplay and features
It is essential to know that Fields of Fortune has two different ways to place bets. You can choose to play with all 25 paylines with OR without the Power Scatter Bet. Without, you pay the coin size x 25 per spin: minimum $€ 0.25 and a maximum $€ 125 per turn.
The Power Scatter Bet
But it is best to activate the Power Scatter Bet. It does make a spin twice as expensive, but the chance of activating the bonus game is immediately many times higher. The game also pays out more when the Power Scatter Bet is activated, although the difference is minimal. The betting ranges from $€ 0.50 to $€ 250 per spin with the Power Scatter Bet activated.
With the Power Scatter Bet option, the scatter symbols (that activate the bonus) are also valid when they drop one spot above or below the reels. And that can make all the difference.
High symbols and carrots
3 “adorable” flowers represent the high-value symbols: a turquoise flesh-eating flower, a purple dragon flower and a gold-coloured Lion flower. It is not until they become wild that they will show their true nature, and their sharp teeth will show. The low-value symbols consist of carrots in the shape of a 10, J, Q, K and A.
In the middle of the screen, a friendly red flower will appear regularly; it functions as the expanding wild. It only really comes into full bloom when it can create new winning combinations.
The free spin bonus: you choose which bonus you want to play
The scarecrow is the bonus symbol: 3 or more of these on the reels (or just off the reels, with the Power Scatter Bet) activate the free spin bonus.
You may now choose between 2 exciting free spin bonuses:
The Carrot Spin Bonus: every time the scatter symbol lands on the 5th reel, the multiplier is increased, up to a maximum of 5 x. You receive an unlimited number of free spins until the scatter drops for the 4th time – that ends the bonus round.
The Parsnip Spin Bonus: here again, you receive an unlimited number of free spins. When the scatter drops, each time, a different high-value symbol will become wild for the free spins’ remainder. But be aware! Once again, the same rule applies: the 4th scatter will end the bonus round immediately.
Our verdict on the Fields of Fortune video slot
Fields of Fortune is an entertaining Playtech slot with a few unique features. Usually, we are not exactly fans of Bonus Bet features because they force you to place higher bets. Although this is also true with this slot (your bet goes up to twice the price with the Power Scatter Bet), you immediately notice that the free spin bonuses drop much more frequently.
The two different spin bonuses are also a lot of fun, and the progressive boosters you can earn keep adrenaline levels high.
3.5 out of 5 stars.
