Where to play Miss Fortune pokies online
Playtech’s Miss Fortune format
When you open Miss Fortune, a short introductory video begins to detail the storyline of the original Playtech theme. It is quite long – but has been done very well – and you can skip if you wish.
Then the 5 reels appear along with the 25 paylines set on a stunning backdrop of a magical castle among the mountains and Miss Fortune bouncing next to the reels.
Unlike many of Playtech’s online slots, you can’t change the coin size – but you can change the size of the bet per line from a minimum of $0.01 and a maximum of $10 per active line. This results in a minimum bet of $0.01 – but you can only have one line activated with this bet – and a maximum of $250 is available when all paylines are activated.
The spin button, which has been crafted on a cauldron, can be found under the reels next to the buttons to adjust your bet size, and you can opt for Turbo Mode, which speeds up the spins, or Auto Play, where you can pick the number of spins you want to play automatically here too.
If you need anymore help regarding the format or functions of any button you can click the spanner icon in the top right hand corner and then on ‘Help’.
Symbol and payouts on Miss Fortune pokie
Click on the ‘Info’ button to view the paytable, where you will find all the symbols and their associated payouts. These include the low value symbols from 10 to A – three of a kind on an active payline will get you the minimum payouts of the title.
The middle value symbols include the potion and the timer, with a minimum of three of a kind landing you a payout.
The top paying symbols only require a minimum of two of the same symbols for a payout and include the frog, owl and Miss Fortune the witch.
The Wild is represented by the Crystal Ball and substitutes for all symbols excluding the Scatter. If you spin three you will trigger The Crystal Ball Re-Spin feature.
The Scatter symbol offers a payout, with a minimum of three of a kind appearing on an active payline seeing your account balance topped up. However, you only need two to appear on the first four reels if you want to trigger the Magical Collection Feature – one less than the standard minimum requirement most Free Spin features require.
Finally, there’s the Bonus symbol, which is the dragon and if three appear on reels 1, 3, or 5 the Teacher’s Pet Bonus is triggered.
Bonus features on Miss Fortune By Playtech
Playtech are all about the entertainment factor on their pokies, and it shows with their bonus features.
First up is the Crystal Ball Re-Spin Feature where you collect Crystal Balls as you spin the reels. Once you have three, a Re-Spin will occur and Miss Fortune will wave her wand and add the Crystal Balls to the reels, which are Wilds, and you will receive a huge payout.
Then there’s the Magical Collection Feature where seven free spins are awarded when you spin two Scatter symbols on reels 1-4. Here, the reels transform and you can click ‘Start’ to play your free games. If you don’t win anything after a spin Miss Fortune waves her wand and increases the 1x multiplier and this can get up to 8x for the final spin.
Finally, there’s the Teacher’s Pet Bonus, triggered by at least three Bonus symbols, and here the reels transform into a cabinet featuring 10 doors. For every mischievous dragon hiding behind the cabinet you will receive a payout. You only get eight picks but Miss Fortune waves her wand when you open an empty door and unlocks 1 to 3 doors for you which don’t impact the ‘picks’ count. This means you can get a whole new cabinet if you still have ‘picks’ left. The more dragons you find the bigger the cash payout up to five to six figures depending on your initial bet.
Graphics and audio on Miss Fortune pokie
Playtech have done an incredible thing by adding an animation when you press the paytable. It looks as if it magically appears when you click the ‘Info’ button – a great addition by the top software provider.
Then there’s the second screen graphics for every bonus – the reels transform with every detail, down to the cracks on the bricks, done exceptionally. Playtech have created some incredible graphics here on Miss Fortune.
There’s a mischievous soundtrack and an added twinkle when the reels spin – they still make the mechanical sound when they stop but it isn’t as prominent as other Playtech pokies.
Our thoughts on Miss Fortune
Playtech do their licensed online slots justice but their original themed titles are something else. The attention to detail on this pokie plus the huge range of features on offer mean we are in for a magical treat.
The Bonus features are quite good – the Free Spins feature was a bit of a let down for us as we didn’t win much but we won $500 on a $10 bet in the Teacher’s Pet bonus.
