Turn Your Fortune is Netent’s first major slot release of 2019
We are therefore extra curious: Netent slots often have something special, whether it is a nicely worked out theme, a unique bonus feature or a combination of the two.
Visually this video slot is a bit disappointing if we are honest. But maybe it has something fun to offer regarding gameplay?
The theme of Turn Your Fortune is wealth, and there are multiple ways to achieve it with this slot. The maximum profit is a cool 2,000 x the total bet. Depending on your total stake, it can yield you between $€ 400 and $€ 400,000.
The real star of Turn Your Fortune is the free spins bonus. This is an ingenious free spins bonus: full of surprises, extra spins and big winnings.
How does the Turn Your Fortune slot work?
There are 40 fixed paylines, divided over 5 reels with 4 rows of symbols.
Regarding style, Netent has chosen a kind of old French chic style, with old-fashioned animal symbols and inlaid card symbols. You either hate or love it; let us leave it at that.
The minimum bet is only $€ 0.20 per spin, and you can bet a maximum of $€ 200 per spin.
Variance and payout percentage of Turn Your Fortune
The variance is medium; this means it is possible to get big, but not absurdly high, prices. The big advantage of slots with a medium variance is that you get some decent playing time for your money.
The theoretical payout percentage of Turn Your Fortune is 96.23%. This is not really bad, but we have come to expect better of Netent. Hopefully, this will not set the trend for 2019.
Symbols and payouts
The symbols consist of 6 different animals and 4 card symbols.
The butterfly is wild and replaces all symbols, except the scatter symbols.
The remaining 5 animals are the premium symbols. They consist of the lion, the owl, the turtle, the fish and something that resembles a fossil.
Spin 5-of-a-kind of these premium symbols, and you win between 60 and 200 coins.
All card symbols are the so-called low paying symbols: a 5-of-a-kind of J, Q, K, or A pays between 20 and 40 coins.
Free spins bonus
If you spin your 3 scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5, then it’s time for a small party. The chances are good that you will experience a nice bonus round.
In the first place, you can spin a beautiful wheel of fortune to determine 3 things:
- How many free spins you get (between 7 and 13)
- What becomes the special savings symbol
- Whether you receive a key for an instant upgrade
After these important matters have been determined, the party begins.
To the left of the reels are a cylinder with numbers. These numbers indicate how much your coin win (the scatters’ profit) will be multiplied by. By default, you start at 5 x, which can amount to as much as 2,000 x.
You can raise your multiplier by saving the special symbol. Every 20 saved symbols, you go one step up on the cylinder. If you turn the +10 symbol, then you immediately get 10 saved symbols.
But if you turn a key, things are looking up for you. It rotates the cylinder, which causes higher values to appear on it.
Every scatter that appears during the free spins will get you +1 free spins.
Fortune Respins Feature
The Fortune Respins is a mini-feature that is activated when you have spun 2 or more scatters, along with a winning combination on a payline.
All winning symbols will remain, and you may try to add as many new symbols as possible to the same symbols using free respins. As long as the same symbols are added, you will receive a free respin. Also, here you save for extra multipliers on the cylinder. Every 5 collected symbols will give you an extra step up.
It is possible to win both the Fortune Respins and the Free Spins Bonus at the same time.
If so, you first play the free spins bonus, and when they are completed, the Fortune Respins are started.
What do we think of Turn Your Fortune?
Although Turn Your Fortune is a pretty decent release by Netent, sadly, the theme is lacking.
The bonus mechanism is interesting enough and can reward you with some nifty payouts.
So, this slot worth giving a try. We do not expect this slot to be played a lot in a few years.
