There’s a vintage flavour the design in Planet Fortune – this is how the future was supposed to look when imagined in the 1950s. Set against a dusty, space station backdrop, the reels include A to 10 values, a gemstone, a crystal, a woman with a communicator and a male astronaut.
The higher value symbols spin in 2, 3 and 4 high stacks. The robot is the game’s wild, replacing everything bar the scatter and offers wins of 62.5 times your stake for 5 on a line. Planet Fortune comes with a pair of bonus extras.
Magnetic Mayhem feature – this can hit at random on any spin in the base game. Once active, 2 or 3 reels will stick together. If it’s 2 reels, you’ll only see 2×2 symbols spinning. Better still if 3 reels are joined as the symbols are giant 3×3 sized. A payout is then made with the oversized symbols in place.
Robot Revolution Free Spins feature – tis round is triggered by landing 3 or more of the robot wild on the same spin. You’ll then receive 10 free spins. The wilds from the triggering spin plus any wilds that land during the feature turn into walking wilds. They move across the screen 1 reel at a time until they drop off the left-hand side. It’s not possible to re-trigger more free spins here though.
The design in Planet Fortune is very good and harks back to the middle of the 20th century. The theme may be retro but the features are bang up to date and have the potential to deliver some potentially exciting action. This is a volatile game so expect plenty of down spells. Get on a roll with the walking wilds or the Magnetic Mayhem reels and this interstellar adventure can deliver some out of this world results – up to 2,500 times your stake on each spin. If you like walking wilds, I recommend Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice from Playtech.
