Flame of Fortune is an interesting and complex Barcrest slot game that is best played using a Big Bet to get 5 or 8 spins. This then increases the chances of triggering the Fortune Drop game which awards nice coin prizes!
Flame of Fortune Slots Data
The game is played on a 5x3 board with 10 paylines and nine symbols, but all that matters little as the goal of the game is to trigger the Fortune Drop game, and the best way to do that is to choose a Big Bet instead of standard spins. Before the spins begin, you will get to choose the Red or Blue Wheel of Fortune. The Blue one consists of eight prizes that range from 1 to 3 Gold Reels, and the Red one also includes Expanding Wilds and Wild Reel. The price of 5 Big Bet spins is 20 coins. For 30 coins you get 8 spins with the same Blue and Red Wheel of Fortune prizes, and for 50 coins these 8 spins will have increased prizes, with a 50% chance of getting 3 Gold Reels on the Blue Wheel of Fortune.
The role of Gold Reels is to substitute for one Gold symbol. Any symbol can have a Gold overlay on it, and Wild is always Golden, and when combined with Gold Reels, all five reels must have some Gold on them to trigger the Fortune Drop bonus game.
With a bet smaller than 2.00, the Wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except for the five card symbols, so a bet of 2.00 per spin or a Big Bet is needed to make Wild substitute for all nine symbols in the paytable.
Fortune Drop is a 5x5 game with Stars, Sun, Earth and Moon symbols, and as combinations of three or four symbols, horizontal or vertical, explode, they are replaced by new symbols from above. The feature can deliver a significant coin prize. After it's over, the player will be given a choice of collecting or spinning a Wheel of Fortune to perhaps win some more games, that may even have multipliers or Wilds. It is definitely recommended to spin the Wheel afterwards and get something even better.
The theoretical return to player (RTP) differs with the bet per spin. At 2.00 or lower, the expected return is 94.00% for the best possible strategy or 93.64% for random strategy. It gets much better with a bet of 2.00 or greater as 96.00% return can be reached, and Big Bet game offers theoretical return of 96.93% for random strategy and 98.00% for best possible strategy, whatever that may be.
Variance of this game is medium, perhaps even a bit low. This is definitely a winnable slot game, but it's only possible to win smaller amounts of money and there will be no mega win of any kind.
Flame of Fortune Slot Theme
Flame of Fortune has a theme that depicts Strength, Wisdom, Faith and Justice. The theme isn't that good, it's a combination between a classic slot and Barcrest's style, but none of that matters as this game is all about complex gameplay.
