Overview of Fu Fortunes Megaways
Fu Fortunes Megaways is one of the latest slot games to be released by iSoftBet and if there is one thing this developer knows it is all about Asian themed slots particularly as their portfolio is packed with them. Straight away you will see that the developers have brought their A game with regards to this stunning extravaganza which covers everything you could imagine from an Eastern slot.
This slot is the fourth in the Megaways series from iSoftBet as they have the popular game engine on license from Big Time Gaming. You probably also have your own idea on what to expect and this is a colossal slot that is completely over the top with all things exotic. This is the type of slot that you will either relish or detest, read on to find out more.
When it comes to the theme the slot could be rather generic due to the Asian traditional look however iSoftBet certainly knows how to paint a gorgeous picture from this theme. When you load the slot, you will be greeted with the bluest sky which is framed beautifully with sweet Chinese architecture complete with strings of swaying lanterns that blow back and forth with the breeze.
When it comes to the game play you have a grid which can be a lot to take in all at once. The game screen is created using 6-reels in true Megaways style. Each of your reels can hold 3 – 6 rows which randomly change on every spin to provide you with a massive 46,656 ways to win. However, this slot does not provide full Megaways power and it is hard differentiating when there are such large numbers in play.
If you are a Megaways fan you will be really pleased when you see that iSoftBet have gone with the Cascading Wins mechanic. The cascading wins is a really useful feature as it discards winning symbols from your reels to allow others to drop into place, and this means that you have the opportunity to get multiple wins on a single spin due to the consecutive winners dropping onto your reels. Winners are formed in a unique way that works perfectly with this mechanic and provided that you land three or more of the same symbol consecutively, these can land on any row but need to sit from left to right to land you with a pay-out.
Time to Bet
The return to player in this slot is not as large as some however it stands at a solid 96.03% which is right in the middle and on par with most of the other slots currently on offer. The math tailored for this slot is rated as having a medium-high setting and whilst this does mean you may have to work hard to begin with to get the most out of the slot. However, before this you need to place your bet which ranges from 20p per spin to a maximum of £20 per spin so affordable for all types of player.
There is little surprise when it comes to the symbols as these tend to be in perfect character. Even the 10 through to Ace low paying Royal card symbols have Asian detailing to keep them in keeping with the theme and stylish ambience of the slot. The higher paying symbols are far more interesting, and you can expect to come across hongbao, drums, golden fish, golden turtles, and golden birds. The word for me that sums up the symbols is gold, with the rewards being fair and landing six of the higher paying symbols will reward you with 1.5x your stake up to 40x your stake.
The Chinese character Fu symbol is the games wild and this symbol can help you to create combinations as it is able to substitute for all the regular game symbols. The wild can only appear on your 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th reels. With the symbols covered it is time to move on to the features.
The wild symbol does not just substitute for other symbols, but each time you land a wild some coins will be added to one of the Fortune Pots that you will see sitting above the reels. These fortune pots can be activated at any time and they can also add a multiplier of up to x5 to the current win or series of cascades. If you land one or more multipliers the values will be added together to a maximum of x20.
If you activate the middle fortune pot the Fu Fortuness Bonus feature will be awarded. This bonus is rather random as you must pick coins until you manage to reveal three Fu babies and you then win one of the jackpots on offer. There are four jackpots these being the Mini, Minor, Major and Grand and are worth 20x, 50x, 200x, and 1,000x, respectively.
For me the highlight of this slot has to be the free spins game which is triggered when you land 4, 5, or 6 of the Jade scatter symbols on your reels and these will reward you with 10, 12 or 15, free spins respectively. There are two things that make the free spins so attractive the first is that all of the lower paying symbols are removed from your reels so you only have the higher paying symbols in play, better still any fortune pot multiplier can be awarded to really give you a boost to your winnings. There is a chance that the slots main character may make an appearance during the free spins, I am not sure what it does but if I had to guess I would say it either awards you with additional wilds or is the signal that there is a big win on the way.
iSoftBet has released some impressive slots of late and every game is outstanding in its own unique way, the game play is easy, and the interface can only be described as awesome! The way that the Megaways game engine, has been utilized adds to the slot and helps it to make the top of my list of slots.
I do appreciate that not all players will be keen on the Asian theme and styling but I can assure you that if you are a fan this slot will not let you down and will have you wanting to return to play again and again. Fu Fortune Megaways provides you with all the elements that you expect to find within this genre, and this is accompanied by such a rich environment it is easy to lose yourself in the game.
Fu Fortunes Megaways possesses a large reel set and completely new menu when it comes to the extras that are on offer. The slot is not trying to provide the novelty factor, in fact this is a serious slot that provides you with a strong Asian slot and there is no doubt that iSoftBet has achieved this perfectly.
I really enjoyed playing this slot and I think you will too, it clearly does everything it sets out to do and gives you excellent win potential that includes four jackpots to boot.
