Small Fortune Slots

Small-Fortune-slotSmall Fortune is a picnic food themed slot, with all the elements of a great game that plenty of people can relate to. It is designed by RTG and it has inside inviting graphics that you shouldn’t be looking at if you didn’t eat yet and you’re hungry. From delicious pies, to cheese, sandwiches, salads and fruit, you’ve got all the elements for a healthy picnic meal. The game is complete with ant characters that are all over that sandwich and with the girl you’re going to picnic with.

This modern 5 reel game has a total of 25 bet lines to offer. The game’s prizes are not among its strong points, offering up to $6,250 through regular combinations (or over $30,000 through the scatter symbol). Two progressive jackpots add to the game’s appeal, though they are not fully integrated in the slot. When it comes to features, the game has free games, multipliers, scatters and wild symbols.

Features of Small Fortune

The list of Small Fortune features is long enough, offering you all the basics but not much more.

The wild symbol is one feature they’ve made a bit more complicated, using two different Ant images to represent the two characters that appear on reel 1 and 5. Both are stacked wilds, so there is a decent potential for them even though they only appear on two reels. The wilds are not capable of substituting for the Girl scatter, but they work with all the other symbols when it comes to substitution.

The Girl is the game’s scatter, and also the symbol that gives you the best prizes. You can get up to 250 times the bet you’ve made, as long as you get five scatter symbols in any position. Four scatters will get you a 20x prize, while three scatters will award 2x.

Free Games Feature

One of the things that this slot does differently is the way it triggers the free games feature. To get it to trigger, you need the Ant wild to be on both the 1st and 5th reels, while at the same time one of the middle three reels have a Picnic Basket symbol on them (the exact position is not important). The more Picnic Baskets are present, the more free spins you get. Each one awards you 5 free games, so hopefully you get as many as possible.

The number of Ant wilds present on the 1st and 5th reels is also important, as adding them up gets you the multiplier to be used during the free games. The potential here is up to 6x multipliers, if all the positions on the two reels are taken over by the wilds.

Retriggering this feature will get you free spins that have the initial multiplier.


Betting options and jackpots

The game allows for maximum bets of $125 to be made during each round you play, but you can reduce that amount to just $0.01 if you only want to see how it works. The bet is composed of 1 to 25 coins, each one valued between $0.01 and $5 (up to the player what coin value he uses).

The highest paying combination rewards the player with 1,250 coins ($6,250). The scatter symbol can be more generous when it appears five times, giving away 250 times the bet value ($31,250). The two progressive jackpots add to the appeal of the slot as well, but they don’t get triggered through its symbols.

Design and symbols

Small Fortune is a charming slot, bringing back nice memories of days spent at picnics, with sandwiches, salads, insects all around and nice blankets to steal a nap on. The graphics are fresh, look great and have lots of details on them. They are also colorful and they look bright. It’s the kind of design that actually makes you want to be there in person, able to enjoy a nice pie.

Symbols: Ant (wild), Girl (scatter, 250x the bet), Pie (1,250x), Sandwich (750x), Picnic Basket (500x), Apple and Watermelon (500x), Butterfly (250x), Blanket (250x), Wine Bottle (200x), Cheese plate (200x), Soda Glass (150x), Salad (150x).


Is It Worth Playing?

Small Fortune is one of those rare games that you will play just because they’re fun and because it’s themed around one of your favorite activities. It has some decent payouts and features as well, but those are not its biggest advantages.

The Small Fortune slot machine is offered through the RTG platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
