There is nothing dramatically innovative about the layout here. 88 Fortunes features three rows and five reels and will have a familiar feel for regular slots players, but the 243 pay lines make it one of the more user-friendly slots out there, and the RTP of 96% is competitive.
Gameplay and Visuals
With so much competition, graphics and presentation are essential, and 88 Fortunes doesn’t disappoint. The layout is pleasant to look at and the design, with its rich mixture of reds and golds, helps to convey an appropriately luxurious atmosphere. The reel icons include some delightfully realised symbols: gold coins, junks, and statuettes, while the golden Fu Bat, the Chinese character for fortune, represents the Wild.
With coin values ranging from $0.01 up to $1.00, there is a big enough range of options to suit most players, from small stakes slot fans to big payers, and there is a maximum bet of $88 per spin, selected if you choose to activate all of the five gold symbols on the left-hand side of the screen. Although lots are going on in this game, it is relatively straightforward to play and isn’t challenging to get into, even for slots beginners.
Features and Bonuses
The Fu Bat Wild symbol can substitute for any symbols to create a winning payline, though it only appears on the middle reels.
But this game’s main selling point is the use of multiple progressive jackpots. These are accessed based on how many gold symbols you unlock. There are four jackpots available. These are Mini, Minor, Major, and Grand. To land the jackpot, you must choose from twelve coins on a grid, and if you can line up three, you will win the relevant progressive.
It is also worth looking out for the Gong Scatters. If you can bring up three, four or five of these on the reels, you will launch a bonus game that gives you ten free spins. You won’t see the low paying icons in the bonus game, only the high paying symbols producing bigger payouts.
