Fortune Girl from Microgaming: Slot Review - win a tidy fortune in this game!

Step inside a mysterious shop where a girl is selling a variety of lucky items that are said to bring great fortune to anyone who buys them.

Software giant Microgaming has been on a roll as of late with a slew of fantastic new game titles. For their latest release: Fortune Girl, they turned their attentions to Asia to focus on a young girl selling a variety of lucky items in a small shop. The game is infused with a strange mix of Japanese Anime and Chinese Culture. Does this strange combination pay off or is the Fortune Girl not so lucky after all?

Fortune Girl has 5 reels with 15 paylines and comes with features such as Mystery symbols and Free Spins.

Special Features

The first feature to highlight is the Wild symbol and this is represented by an image of the Fortune Girl game logo complete with a golden background. It substitutes for all symbols to help form winning combinations except for the Scatter symbol.

The slot features Mystery symbols which are stacked symbols of golden doors that transform into any other symbol except for the Wild symbol to help increase your chances of landing a nice payout. Manage to fill the whole screen with Scatter symbols and you will be treated to a whopping 1,200X your initial bet!

The Scatter symbol is depicted by an image of a golden dragon. Land 3 or more of these symbols anywhere on the reels and you will trigger the Free Spins feature where you’ll be awarded 14 Free Spins. In the main game, Mystery symbols are stacked but in the Free Spins game, they become super stacked. What this means is that they appear more often and in bigger numbers during Free Spins. You’ll also notice that during Free Spins, there is a multiplier bar that appears on top of the reels. If you land 3 Scatter symbols during a Free Spin then the multiplier will increase in value, starting from 2X to as high as 5X. Land a win on Free Spins with a 5X multiplier attached and you'll be treated to a fine payout.

Theme and Graphics

The graphics are bright and colourful and like most Microgaming slots, it features a highly stylish presentation. The game is set inside a small shop that is draped with red cloth, a purple wall, and some old-school street lamps. The Fortune Girl seems to have been very successful with her business as you’ll also notice piles of coins all over the floor! Symbols consist of the Fortune Girl, an abacus, some teacups, a purse, a box of coins, and some Chinese letters. The symbols blink and flash nicely when you land a win and there is a neat animation of a door transforming into a symbol whenever a Mystery symbol shows up on the reels.

The music is slow, melodic, featuring a distinctly Asian vibe. It ties in really nicely with the theme of the game.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game has 15 paylines, an average RTP of 95.8%, and a low jackpot of 1,200X.

Our Verdict on Fortune Girl

Fortune Girl is produced by Microgaming and it's a highly entertaining slot to play. The theme of the game is quite original but could have been fleshed out a little bit more so we could learn more about who the Fortune Girl really is. I managed to trigger Free Spins a few times while playing this slot but be warned it can take a bit of time to activate this feature. However, it is definitely worth it when you do as with added multipliers of up to 5X on every Free Spin, there is potential to land some massive wins. I found this game to be of medium variance so it won’t take you too long before you bag a decent enough win across the reels.

Find the luckiest trinket of them all in Fortune Girl!
