Fortune Coin Slot Review

IGT takes the well-trodden road to China in Fortune Coin. It’s a 5 reel, 243 ways to win slot game that comes with synced reels that reveal matching stacks of symbols as well as special coins that can award cash prizes, free spins and 4 potential jackpot prizes. Stakes here range from between 60p and £600 per spin.

Go for gold

Like many slots with the Asian theme, there’s plenty of gold on display in Fortune Coin. With a woodland scene at night in the background, the dark blue reels include colourful A to 9 symbols as well as 5 higher-paying gold ornaments. The best of the quartet is the golden lion which pays 0.66 x stake if you land 5 on adjoining reels. The golden dragon is the wild. This substitutes for all the standard symbols.

Synchronized reels

On any spin you could see special stacked symbols. These all transform into the same matching symbol and a payout calculation follows.

Fortune Coin feature

This feature round becomes active each time you land a gold fortune coin symbol. Each coin flips over to reveal one of the following.

  • A coin prize of the amount shown – up to 1,000 x stake
  • 5, 10, 15 or 20 free spins
  • Entry to the Jackpot Bonus feature

Jackpot Bonus feature

If you trigger this extra, you’ll be taken to a new screen. Choose from the objects shown. Behind each one will be a Mini, Minor, Major or Maxi symbol. Keep picking until you find 3 the same and that’s the prize you’ll win. What you’ll really be hoping to see is the Win All symbols which awards all 4 jackpots.

The Maxi Jackpot is initially worth 166.67 times your stake. If you reveal a Boost, Super Boost or Mega Boost during the jackpot picker the prizes are increased. You can boost the jackpots by 3 meaning the Maxi Jackpot will be worth 500 x stake.

Up to 1,000 free spins

You can also trigger the Free Spins Bonus feature by landing 3, 4 or 5 of the dragon head scatter on the same spin. You’ll then receive an award of 2, 10 or 50 times your stake before going on to play 10, 15 or 20 free spins. Look out here for stacked high value symbols which can hit during the feature.

Stacked symbols all morph into the same matching symbol. You can land the Fortune Coin and Jackpot Bonus features from within the free spins round too. Finally, you can retrigger multiple times with a possible 1,000 free spins available.

Low variance Asian play

Like many IGT releases, Fortune Coin has the look and feel of a live casino slot – that’s because it is. The colourful design is decent enough, backed by a classical Asian soundtrack. The features offer a decent amount of variety but you won’t find anything very out of the ordinary here. It’s a perfectly solid slot though.

Low variance, the most you can win is 1,000 x stake from the Fortune Coin feature. Other than that, Fortune Coin isn’t a slot I will be coming back to. IGT has much better games available with the Egyptian-themed Pyramidion offering more variety and bigger potential max wins.
