Fortune Teller Slot from NetEnt
The mix of graphics and sounds in this online slot do a great job in recreating the gypsy fortune teller theme.
This is a 5-reel video slot which includes a break out bonus game based on tarot cards, and separate free spins round where all of your wins are tripled.
Game play is fast and smooth, and the overall production is excellent as you would expect from a Net Entertainment slot.
How to Win on Fortune Teller
There are 30 win lines crossing the 5 colorful reels – and some generous prizes for the best symbols. These are topped by the wild symbol, which shows a hand with an eye on it surrounded by the signs of the zodiac. This is worth 7500 coins for 5 of a kind, with the 2000 coins for 4 also worth hitting. You’ll get 200 coins for 3 and 5 coins for just 2 from the left hand side. This symbol will also create wins with the other regular symbols by substituting for them.
Two animals are the next on the prize list. A white horse rearing in front of a sun, and a black cat sitting on a red book. Either of these will win 500 coins for the full 5 – paying down to 3 of a kind. A gypsy caravan comes next – followed by playing card symbols, some of which are on tambourines and others on tarot cards.
Bonus, Scatter and Free Spins Games
The gypsy fortune teller herself makes an appearance as the bonus symbol (this has the word bonus written down the right hand side). If you hit three or more on one of the win lines, you’ll get to play the 2nd screen bonus game. You are taken to a screen with 3 rows of tarot cards, with the fortune teller herself sat behind them, and a crystal ball in front showing your wins. Your task is to choose a card from each of the rows – each one will reveal either a (small) prize in coins, or the ‘death’ card, which ends your game.
Scatter symbols are the crystal ball, with the fortune teller’s hands around it. You’ll be paid a multiple of your total bet when you hit 2 or more of these anywhere on the screen. If you hit 3 or more, then you’ll get to play the free spins bonus game, starting with 12 free spins.
While the game is the same for your free spins, any wins you get are tripled during this bonus. This does not include any wins from the break out tarot cards bonus game, or scatter wins – though the main prize for 5 wilds would be included.
Rich and Intensive Design
NetEnt always go that extra mile in bringing slot themes to life – and Fortune Teller is no exception. The detail starts around the reels, which is made to look like the inside of a gypsy caravan. The logo above the reels sees the fortune teller herself appearing to blow playing cards into the air. Between the reels are gold and emerald decorations.
The symbols are detailed and the mix of colors and designs give the game a somewhat crowded feel. Several of the symbols are really well drawn including the eye in the palm (wild), the scatter crystal ball and the gypsy herself as the bonus symbol. One small complaint is that the playing card symbols on the tambourine (ace, king and queen) look a too similar, making it hard to follow your wins.
There are some violin sound effects when you hit wins, and the shaking of a bag of runes is used for the spinning of the reels.
Animations step up a level for the break out bonus game in particular, where you’ll find a very detailed picture of the gypsy lady and realistic flipping of the tarot cards.
NetEnt often offer a lot of options for your game setup – and Fortune Teller is no exception. The default is 30 win-lines, though you can choose to play fewer than this. You can also choose your coin size, coins per line, auto-play for a set number of spins or to simply use the ‘bet max’ button. There is a handy preview of the bonus game if you are curious about this.
Overall this is a solid slot, which stands out in the production more than it does for the game play. The break out bonus does offer some variation, though I found that the wins from this were on the smaller side. Your big win potential comes from the free spins bonus game – where any regular wins are tripled.
