Pragmatic Play Launches Fairytale FortuneTia Winter | 13 April 2018
Malta-based online gaming software developer, Pragmatic Play has just released its latest video pokies game, Fairytale Fortune. The release of this fantasy-themed 5-reel pokie comes just 2weeks after Pragmatic Play finalised its high-profile distribution deal with popular mobile and online iGaming operator, LeoVegas AB.
Fairytale Fortune delivers all the usual elements that we have come to expect from Pragmatic Play pokies. This includes a pretty though unimaginative look, fairly engaging game play, numerous bonus rounds, and an array of special symbols. It is a 15-payline pokies, with wager of one coin per line and a maximum of 10 coins. Coin values range from 0.01 to 0.5 credits so it is a fairly affordable option. Its 96.25% RTP percentage further adds to its appeal to low-rolling players.
While the fantasy wonderland theme may be a little tired, Pragmatic Play has done a good job of designing a pokies that is gentle on the eye and satisfies the tastes of its target audience.
This includes a soft, pink and purple colour scheme, with the reels set against the backdrop of a breath-taking Camelot-like landscape. Theme-appropriate symbols and elements include mythical creatures like unicorns and dragons, as well as a handsome prince and a beautiful princess. Fairytale Fortune also includes the usual playing card symbols, although these have been stylised to match the theme. Some of these symbols become animated when they form part of winning combinations – the prince, for example, produces a red rose for players who land three or more of him on a payline.
The soundtrack and audio effects are perfectly suited to the visuals. A whimsical melody plays while the reels spin, with simple tinkling sound effects marking any winning combinations.
Myriad of Bonus Features
Fairytale Fortune’s most appealing quality is undoubtedly the fact that it offers four different bonus features for players to increase their chances of winning. These include the Wheel of Fortune, Super Wilds, Progressive Free Spins and Raining Wilds features, which are triggered by three or more bonus diamond symbols.
The Wheel of Fortune feature allows players to spin a wheel in order to win rewards in the form of multipliers – these range from as little as five up to a whopping 50. Meanwhile, the Raining Wilds feature presents Fairytale Fortune players with 10 free spins, featuring up to 10 wilds per spin. The Super Wilds Free Spins feature also offers players 10 free spins but adds another Super Wild free spin onto these. Finally, the Progressive Free Spins Feature awards 20 free spins, during which players must collect points to advance through five successive levels, with each new level presenting even better prizes.
Fairytale Fortune also gives players the opportunity to double, triple or even quadruple their winnings with its Gambling feature.
