Fortunium Slots by Microgaming presents a steampunk-themed game that not only gives players a seldom-used setting but some other small betting tweaks and a Mystery Bonus Feature that add to the gamer’s experience. This is the first release by Microgaming's new sub-brand, Stormcraft Studios, and it is a fine start that could result in much potential for future releases from the developer. Shortly after its release, Fortunium Slots enjoyed almost instant popularity at the casinos featuring it.
Fortunium i a city that appears to be made of gold, and the city spires provide a great backdrop for this game. Players will find the slot’s two characters, Maximilian and Victoria, on the reels with plasma guns, an airship, treasure chests and the four playing card suits in blue, green, orange and red. The glowing, green orb is the scatter symbol and the golden W is the wild icon that can replace any other symbol needed to generate a win with the exception of the scatter. This slot also features a mystery symbol that triggers bonus feature while adding a bit of intrigue to the game.
Fortunium Slots is a 5-reel game with 40 bettable paylines that can all be wagered with up to 25 coins each. Coin sizes vary from as small as $0.01 to as large as $0.50; this gives the title a per-spin variance of $0.40 to $125, making Fortunium an excellent choice for a variety of bettors. Big or small, wagering in this game is a total win for players who enjoy variety.
The fact that Fortunium is not just another 5-reel, 20-payline slot with a single coin per-payline betting system from Microgaming makes this title quite interesting. Add in the Mystery Symbol and Win Boost Features, and the game becomes even more exciting. Early reviews of this title are positive, and hopefully Microgaming takes notices and continues with the improved graphics and innovative game play that Stormcraft Studios can obviously produce.
