Fortunate 5 is a new mobile slot, released in October 2015, and one which centres on pirates as its main theme. The game features pretty spiffy looking buccaneer style graphics, and comes fully packed with a cool 6,000-coin non-progressive jackpot.
There are progressives to win, too, though, and we’ll come to that shortly. Fortunate 5 allows players to bet anything from a minimum stake of 60p a spin, which is a bit harsh given that there are 5 reels and just 15 paylines to play on. On the plus side, you aren’t going to be staking any more than £6 a spin on this slot with the maximum wager. Players aren’t likely to win very often, but when they do, it does tend to be a fairly decent prize. This makes Fortunate 5 a high variance slot.
The pirate ship is the wild icon in Fortunate 5, and although it can only appear on the second, third, and fourth reels of the game, it can replace all other icons in the slot, save for other special symbols.
Know, about those progressives we have already mentioned. If you can land 5 pirate symbols on any of the slot’s 15 paylines, then you will win one of the games 5 progressive jackpots. Redbeard is the best icon to land, since it is worth the most. Should a player only manage to land 4 such symbols on a line, they will be given an extra spin to try and land that all-important fifth symbol.
Wild Water bonus
The Wild Water bonus is triggered if you can land 3 or more skull and crossbones icons in any positions on the reels. This will trigger a free bonus. You’ll get an unlimited number of free spins to play with, until you locate 5 wilds. After bagging those wilds, you only get one more spin.
The free spins bonus in Fortunate 5 is creative, inventive, and original. The same can be said about the 5 progressive jackpots that the slot carries. All in all, then, there is much to appreciate and enjoy about the Fortunate 5 slot.
