Fortunes of the Caribbean Slots

Fortunes-of-the-CaribbeanPlaying Fortunes of the Caribbean gives you access to a slot machine with a tropical tropic, a very pleasant looking game with clear blue waters, turtles, fruits and overall, just the kind of title that you want to spend time with when you’re aching for a nice long vacation. Designed by WMS, it seems to have the right graphics, but let’s see how it does with the features that it offers as well.

You’re getting 60 paylines in Fortunes of the Caribbean, and they’re arranged on 5 reels which aren’t all of the same size. The game is also capable of giving you free spins in about three different ways, of offering wild symbols and scatters. The best prize offered is at only $2,000.

Features of Fortunes of the Caribbean

The game’s playing mode is a bit different than you might be used to, and then there are also the wild symbols, scatters and the free spins which can be triggered.

The game features a Money Burst layout, where the initial two reels have two symbols each, while the next three reels get four symbols.

The Palm Trees wild is the symbol which is going to be most useful to you, but you can’t count on always getting it. It’s going to be a substitute symbol, capable of being part of other combinations than the ones that have the same Palm Trees in them, and it will do this for almost all the symbols, the exception here being the scattered Shell. As a symbol which creates its own combinations as well, if you land enough of these on a payline you can get paid up to 400 coins.

Free Games Feature

The slot’s free games may be triggered if you’re lucky, but the way they start up can vary, so it’s doable in more than one way.

First of all, you can get 5 free spins when three Golden Shell scatters are on the reels. The free spins will have one of the reels entirely wild for the duration of the feature.

Next, you can also get 5 spins for free by getting four identical symbols on the first two reels. These can include wild symbols among them, they still count. If this is how the free spins start, instead of the wild reel you get the four matching symbols to be locked in place for the duration. This is a feature which can be retriggered, when the scatters appear on the last three reels.

Finally, there is the chance that you will trigger a round with 20 free spins. The requirement is for the initial two reels to get four matching icons, while three scattered Golden Shells are present on the last three reels. The free spins come with a wild reel, and no chance to retrigger them.

Betting options and jackpots

If you decide to bet on all the lines, you might be expecting a 60 coin wager, but you will only need 30 coins. The game needs one coin for two lines that are active, and doesn’t allow you to bet more than that. Each coin goes from $0.01 to $5, so you can adjust the value as your budget needs it. The biggest bet possible is worth $150.

If you get the best payout possible, that means that you’ve gotten 400 coins out of a combo, with the maximum value being $2,000.

Design and symbols

Since most of us dream about a nice long tropical vacation, you will probably enjoy what Fortunes of the Caribbean has to offer you.


You can see the ocean in the background, with the obligatory palm tree next to the reels. The reels have the unusual layout I mentioned before, with two smaller and three larger reels. The symbols are entirely themed, featuring either fruits, birds, flowers or other creatures of the ocean.


Symbols: Tropical Island (400 coins, wild), Golden Shell (scatter), Girl (200 coins), Pearl Necklace (200 coins), Pendant (200 coins), Parrot (150 coins), Turtle (100 coins), Frog (100 coins), Fish (100 coins), Pink Flower (60 coins), Orange Flower (50 coins), Pineapple (40 coins) and Bananas (30 coins).


Is It Worth Playing?

It’s the perfect game for someone that’s tired and just wants his next vacation to start. The pretty graphics are accompanied by plenty of paylines, and best of all you wager only half the number of coins you would normally need to get them all active.
