Fortune Finder Slots

Fortune-FinderFortune Finder is a game that is offered by Microgaming, and it is themed around the search for precious metals and gemstones. The gold rush of the 19th century is well known, as a time when many lives were ruined, of men that gambled everything on a chance to win big and be able to retire rich. It didn’t quite happen for them, but maybe you will have more luck in this game.

You get plenty of chances to find your fortune in this game, with 30 lines being available on its 5 reels. You are going to take advantage as you play of wild symbols, scatters, multipliers and free spins, while hoping that the $30,000 top jackpot will be your reward.

Features of Fortune Finder

All features offered in Fortune Finder are the kind that you see in pretty much all modern slots, at least the ones that try to give players everything they could want. You will find a wild symbol, which you get to choose, plus a scatter, rounds with free spins and some multipliers.


One of the things that are special about this game is the wild feature. It actually uses three symbols, showing you diamonds, gold nuggets and rubies. Only one of them can act as the wild symbol though, but you’re the one to choose which one it will be. The three potential wilds are shown beneath the reels, and by clicking on one of them you set it to be used as the wild. The other two will not be taken into consideration. No matter which one of the three you pick, it will act the same way, substituting in winning combinations for regular symbols, but not doing anything about the Miner scatter. The wild doesn’t have its own prizes to offer and it is only going to appear on the reels 2, 3 and 4.

The Miner, a white haired character with quite a few missing teeth, acts as the slot’s only scatter symbol. If it appears on the reels a couple of times in the same round, you automatically get a prize from it, and those symbols don’t even have to be arranged on a payline. That’s what a scatter is, a symbol that can give you prizes even though it’s scattered on the reels. A minimum of two symbols will be sufficient to trigger a prize of 2x the bet, but additional scatters will improve the payout, up to 100x the bet for five Miners.

Free Games Feature

With the Miner symbol, you don’t get only cash prizes, as the free spins feature is also triggered by these symbols. 3 to 5 scattered Miners will give you 15 to 25 spins for free, plus a x2 multiplier to double all prizes.


The same wild that was selected at the time when the free spins were triggered will be used for the duration of the feature, without the possibility of changing the symbol.

Betting options and jackpots

With top bets of $150, and with 30 lines available, it’s obvious that the maximum line bet reaches a value of $5. It is composed of up to 20 coins, their denomination being at the maximum of $0.25. Everything can be scaled down to the minimum though, so you can get away with spending just $0.25 and you would still cover all the lines.

You wager up to 600 coins per round, and in exchange you can get 120,000. That’s a 6,000x line bet multiple, with a $30,000 value.

Design and symbols

The design of Fortune Finder is attractive enough, mixing together all sorts of tools that the miner would use in his search for underground riches. The background is a wall of rock on the sides and the underground tunnel in the middle, though the reels cover this part.

Symbols: Diamond/Ruby/Nugget (wild), Miner (100x the bet, scatter), Mining Cart (6,000x), Pan with nuggets (3,000x), Dynamite (2,000x), Pickaxe (500x), Ace (150x), King (150x), Queen (125x), Jack (125x), 10 (100x) and 9 (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

It’s enjoyable, it pays well and it has the right features to keep you entertained, at least for a while. The fact that you can pick the wild symbol is a nice gimmick, but it doesn’t do much for your bottom line.

This Fortune Finder slot is offered by all online casinos with Microgaming software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
