Fame and Fortune Slots

Fame-and-FortuneFame and Fortune is an RTG designed slot, with a title that describes quite well what Hollywood is about. Most people going there are looking to first achieve fame and then hopefully get a fortune going as well. That’s what this game is all about, themed around Hollywood stars, their cars, diamonds, Oscar statues and beauty in general. The slot tries to put on a show for a game like this, with graphics well thought out and in perfect accordance to life on the stage.

Fame and Fortune is a slot machine with 5 reels, plus 20 paylines and prizes worth up to $25,000. Prize wise, there is also a progressive jackpot, but the top 3 paying combinations of the game will all offer a better payout. When you look at the game’s big features, you will notice that they didn’t skip any of the regulars. The game has free spins, multipliers, scatters and even wild symbols.

Features of Fame and Fortune

The Glamour Girl takes up the main role in this game. You will notice her showing up from time to time on reels 2, 3 and 4. While doing so, the Glamour Girl can substitute for any of the regular symbols the game has to offer, but it can’t do anything about the three types of scatters that appear here. It will double up any prizes you might win with its help, so the fact that it only appears on three reels isn’t such a big issue.

One of the things I’ve enjoyed seeing here is that there are three types of scatter symbols that are used. Two of them only work together though and during the base game, so you get two types of rewards from them.

The two scatters which work together have on them a Hollywood star and a name. The Fame star appears on the 1st reel, while Fortune is reserved for the 5th. As you can read below, these scatters trigger the free spins, but on top of that you also get a small prize, worth 2x the bet value.


Free Games Feature

The presence of both the Fame and the Fortune scatters on their reels, the 1st and the 5th, will get you access to a free games feature. It consists of 10 free spins, with 2x multipliers for the first 5 spins and 3x for the next 5.

The Diamond scatter symbol is the one that is responsible for awarding payouts, but only during the free games. Get this symbol between two and five times in the game and you will be rewarded with a prize between 2x and 100x the value of the wager placed in that round. Whenever you get 3+ Diamond symbols during the free spins, you can retrigger the free spins with an extra 10 rounds.

Betting options and jackpots

The betting system is easy to understand. There are a total of 20 lines on the 5 reels of this game and each one can receive a bet anywhere between $0.01 and $5. You can select as many lines as you want, but if you decide to maximize the prize value it’s going to require a $100 bet per spin.

With the help of the multiplier that the wild brings to the table, you can win up to $25,000 (5000 coins) from a single combo. Without the wild, you can get only 2500 coins ($12,500). There is a small progressive jackpot offered as well, awarded randomly to one of the players using the game.

Design and symbols

The Hollywood part of the theme is easily visible here, with the stage curtains placed at the top, while the scene is presumably behind the part with the reels. The fortune part is not as evident, but there are some symbols in the game that suggest it. Either way, it’s a good design, attractive and with the right combination of red and yellows.

Symbols: Glamour Girl (wild), Fame & Fortune (scatters, 2x the bet), Hollywood sign (2,500x), Retro Car (1,500x), Award Statue (1,000x), Ace and King (250x), Queen and Jack (200x), 10 and 9 (150x).


Is It Worth Playing?

If you find the entertainment world fascinating, or if you want to become an actor yourself, you will find Fame and Fortune a decent game to play. Its graphics help it quite a bit as well. With the features, I would’ve wanted for the big scatter payouts to be offered in the base game as well, not just during the free spins.

You will find Fame and Fortune at any online casino which chooses to use software from RTG, playable either for free or for real money.
