Year of Fortune Slot Machine Review

Year of Fortune is a 25 line progressive slot with a Chinese year of the Ox theme. It joins other similar games from RTG such as Happy Golden Ox of Happiness. The game uses the 5 reel, 25 line format during regular play and then switches to an 88 line format on the free games. Bet level is fixed at 25 coins and coin sizes start at 0.01.

The progressive jackpot starts at $5,000 and is triggered by getting five of the Man of Wealth symbols on any active line. You have to get five of the symbols as no wilds are allowed as part of the win. In fact the wilds do not even substitute for the Man of Wealth.

The wilds on Year of Fortune are the Golden Ox symbols. These appear on the middle three reels only but they do double any win they are a part of during regular play. Top line win after the progressive pay is 8,888 coins (17,776 with at least one wild) for five Temples. You can also win 8,888 coins with four of the Man of Wealth symbols.

From there you have a range of pays all of which have the lucky 8 as part of the payout amount. Five Dragons for example come in at 888 coins and five Statues come in at 288 coins. All of the lower paying wins are doubled if a wild Ox is part of the win.

The winning opportunities are even bigger on the free spins. To win the free games you need to hit three or more scattered Year of the Ox logos appear anywhere on the reels. Once triggered you are awarded 8 free spins and the game changes to an 88 line format.

In addition to all of the new lines to win on the wild Ox symbols also become cumulative multipliers. This means that one wild doubles a win, two wilds quadruple a win and three wilds multiply the win by 8. This boosts the top line win for the five Temples to a big 71,104 coins. You can also win the progressive during the free spins. The free games can be re-triggered an unlimited amount of times.

Overall, Year of Fortune is a good addition to the Chinese new year theme slots that RTG have released. We really like the fact that you get 88 lines on the free games with cumulative wilds and the fact that you will always have a shot at winning at least $5,000 for as little as 0.25 per spin.
