Reel of Fortune Slots

Reel-of-FortuneReel of Fortune is a Rival Gaming slot machine with a theme that revolves around a TV game show. It’s a Wheel of Fortune type of show, with objects that are won by spinning a huge wheel that has various prizes on it. You will discover a few other slots already on the market with a similar theme, but Reel of Fortune has its own advantages and I would put it among the best, at least graphics wise. The cartoon like design and the features both contribute to the game’s appeal.

The slot’s 5 reels get a maximum of 20 active bet lines, and among the symbols that appear on them you will discover a couple of bonus games that get triggered with the help of scatters. A jackpot of only $3,750 is up for grabs.

Features of Reel of Fortune

The only features that seem to be offered in the game are two scatter symbols, but each one can get you a different bonus game, so I wouldn’t discount them yet.

Donkey Bonus Game

The Donkey feature gets triggered whenever the Curtain symbol is shown a minimum of three times on the reels. Behind the curtain is a Dollar sign, and it’s appropriate enough since the symbol is also capable of awarding prizes. They start at just 1x the wager, but they can get as high as 50x, depending on just how many of these scatter symbols are on the reels (three to five needed).

You have to pick various closed curtains, and you win a prize if it’s a dollar symbol. If it’s a donkey, the feature ends.

Plunko Bonus Game

This one gets started with the second scatter symbol of Reel of Fortune, which shows you the Plunko Logo. Once again, you need at least three to start up the feature. Just like the Curtain scatter, Plunko will get you a prize at the same time. It’s worth 1x when there are three scattered Logos, 5x when there are four and 50x for five.

The bonus game asks you to pick the location where the Plunko Puck should be dropped. You then use a Nudge Row option, to move it to a bonus area with a big prize.

Betting options and jackpots

The betting options of Reel of Fortune allow you to use anywhere between 1 and 200 coins for each round, while their denomination is between $0.01 and $0.25. You end up with wagers of up to $50, with each line getting $2.50 (up to 10 coins).

The slot’s best symbol, the RV, will give you 1,500x the line wager, so a maximum of $3,750 cash.

Design and symbols

The theme of the game being about a Wheel of Fortune type of game show, the symbols are mostly objects that you could be winning while spinning that wheel. From cars, to boats, appliances or golf clubs, you get a lot of stuff in there that people would want, and none of it is cheap. The cartoon like drawing style is attractive, even though it’s mostly objects you see there, so it doesn’t truly take advantage of it.

Symbols: Curtain (scatter, 50x the wager), Plunko Logo (scatter, 50x the wager), RV (1,500x), Car (1,000x), Boat (800x), Refrigerator (500x), Motorcycle (500x), Washer (400x), TV Set (400x), Golf Clubs (250x), Blender (225x) and Grill (200x).


Is It Worth Playing?

It’s not the best paying game ever, far from it, but it does well in the design area. It lacks a few too many features as well, so I for one will not return to it in the future. Go for it only if the theme is really something you want to experience.

You will find Reel of Fortune at any online casino which chooses to use software from Rival, playable either for free or for real money.
