Planet FortuneBy: Play ‘n Go
Review of Planet Fortune Slot
When it comes to retro styles, some are considered cool, and others we dislike, to say the least. I’d put the graphics of the 80s or 90s in the latter category, but when it comes to old and enjoyable graphics, few compare as favourably as the 50s comic book style designs. It’s exactly what we’re being offered in this new Play n Go release; space colonization themed slot called Planet Fortune.
The setup is slightly larger than usual, with 4 rows of symbols organized in 5 columns/reels. There is enough room for them to form 40 winning combinations in each round, this being the fixed number of lines. The developer thought up several cool features, and the ones that make it interesting are:
- Magnetic Mayhem, with its mega symbols
- Stacked high-paying symbols
- Robot Revolution free spins with walking wilds
- Regular wild symbols
Theme & Graphics
Planet Fortune will not be a unique experience, but it’s still going to be thoroughly enjoyable. The science fiction inspired theme is already a plus for it when it comes to a lot of players’ preferences. The fact that they also created a beautiful retro design is another reason why you would enjoy it. Symbols, in this case, will rely on the images of robots, men, and women from the future, crystals, but also some playing cards which aren’t as annoying as you might think.
Betting & Jackpots
When you’re playing a Play n Go slot, you’re usually going to find the same betting system implemented that you also have in Planet Fortune. It’s a line at the bottom, showing five-bet values at a time, with another ten accessible through the side buttons. The smallest total bet that is selectable is worth $0.20, while the biggest one is $100.
Looked at individually, I doubt that you will find a $6,250 jackpot impressive. The slot claims to offer up to 2,500x your bet though, which is true if you consider all 40 lines, in which case you could get as much as $250,000 out of a single round (with all positions being occupied with wilds). An average 96.50% RTP gives us a good idea of what the slot will pay if you stick with it for long enough, and it’s a good percentage to find in such a game.
First of all, though not exactly features, it’s important to note that you’re going to find on the slot’s reels stacked symbols. There are four of them that will land this way, with 2 to 4 positions occupied on the reel. The chosen ones are the high-paying regulars, symbols with characters or items in them. It doesn’t happen for the playing cards though.
You can expect the slot’s wild symbols to be displayed in Robots’ form, sporting a look that belongs to the 50s and how people saw them back then. They may form combinations among themselves, paying the largest rewards of the slot, but they’re also usable mixed with other types of symbols.
While you’re playing through Planet Fortune, you will sometimes get a random feature which Play n Go calls Magnetic Mayhem. When it is activated, you will find that 2 or 3 reels stick together and they start showing you mega symbols, which occupy 2×2 or 3×3 positions. Naturally, if you get 3×3 mega symbols to appear on the right reels, you’re pretty much guaranteed 40 winning combinations simultaneously.
Wild symbols are usable as scatters as well, by which I mean that when you get at least three visible, you trigger a Robot Revolution. It will consist of 10 free spins, during which the Robot wilds start moving to the left side, one position at a time.
