88 Fortunes is the latest Oriental-themed online slots release from WMS Gaming. Featuring a predominantly gold and deep red colour scheme, chirpy music and symbols significant to Chinese culture, 88 Fortunes is a feel-good and atmospheric game. There are 5 reels, 3 rows and a huge 243 ways to win. More noteworthy – you may agree – are the four progressive jackpots that are available to win. Check out their values in the top right hand corner of the screen, and read on to discover how you can grab one for yourself.
The striking rouge reels of 88 Fortunes feature a bird, a ship, a tortoise, a vase and a Chinese dollar. The symbols can appear gold or regular colours depending on which version of the game you have chosen to play. The golden version of a symbol indicates a higher value. Players will notice that increasing their bet level increases the availability of golden symbols filling the reels. (See the top left hand corner to make bet amendments.) This also determines which of the available jackpots they are eligible to win.
The remaining symbols are playing card icons, a gong symbol and a Fu Bat wild. This wild substitutes every other symbol but appears on the second, third and fourth reels only.
Progressive Jackpots & Bonus Feature
Landing one or more Fu Bat wild symbols may result in the chance to win an available progressive jackpot (this depends on the number of golden symbols played). If a player is eligible for more than one jackpot, a reveal and match game determines which jackpot will be received.
The Gong symbol is the key to the bonus feature of 88 Fortunes slot. Landing 3, 4 or 5 Gongs in view will trigger 10 free spins that feature the higher value symbols only. Furthermore, the Fu Bat wild jackpot feature can be triggered within free games, for a double whammy!
88 Fortunes is an attractive and fun game to enjoy. Although not especially innovative in bonus features, there are plenty of thrills available as you watch the jackpot values creep up and as the bonus feature triggers – which can be quite often, if you’re lucky. With an eye-catching theme, a pleasant design and an RTP of 95.93%, we’d recommend spending a little time on this game.
