Microgaming Adds New Fortunium Slot to Its Portfolio
The Isle of Man-based software development company Microgaming has announced the launch of the latest addition to their portfolio.
The game made its first appearance back in February, at this year’s edition of ICE Totally Gaming, where it attracted a lot of attention.
Say hello to the new steampunk-themed release titled Fortunium, which is created by Stormcraft Studios, an independent game studio that joins the list of Microgaming partners that supply exclusive content to the renowned company.
The game that marks the beginning of their cooperation has been developed in a mobile-first manner, promising a premium experience for all those players who prefer to enjoy their slots on the go. Of course, the game is available for desktop as well.
Welcome to Fortunium, a thriving metropolis where the world’s greatest minds come together to bring their ideas and inventions to life, with fame and fortune waiting just around the corner. You’ll encounter a world of mechanical masterpieces and alchemical works of art, where everything is possible.
About the Game
Fortunium is a five-reel five-row slot with a total of 40 fixed paylines, offering stacks of mystery symbols which have the ability to turn into other icons, along with the Win Booster feature where you can remove the low-value symbol from even appearing on the reels.
Don’t forget the Free Spins round, where you’ll have the chance to grab up to 3 Mystery Reels on each spin.
When it comes to wagering, players will have wide options. The coin denomination ranges from $0.01 to $0.50, while the bet itself is set from $0.15 to $187.50 per spin.
The game’s two main symbols are Maximilian and Victoria, the founders of the city of Fortunium, which will appear stacked on the reels. The list of icons includes strange and a bit weird inventions that perfectly match the entire theme. An excellent soundtrack set the right atmosphere a thrilling adventure.
Aside from the game’s stunning looks, Fortunium has quite a serious potential when it comes to winnings.
The Mystery Symbols feature can prove to be quite lucrative, and it’s activated when Mystery Symbols land on the reels, opening to reveal a randomly chosen symbol.
The Win Booster feature will cost you 50% more per each spin, but it will remove all low-value icons from the grid. In practice, this means the Mystery Symbols feature will only show top-paying or Wild symbols, thus increasing the chances of scoring bigger wins.
Players will be looking forward to the Free Spins round, where they’ll initially get 10 spins, while up to 3 Mystery Reels on each free spin can result in a payout worth 800 times the stake! On each spin!
Commenting on the launch of the new game, David Reynold, Games Publisher at Microgaming said Fortunium was a stunning slot that fused together with a unique genre with amazing game mechanics that would immerse players into Microgaming’s richest game world yet.
He also pointed out the game was fully optimised for portrait gameplay, making it a brilliant addition to the company’s diverse portfolio of games.
All in all, Fortunium packs a lot of excitement, great graphics, and immersive gameplay. You can find the game at any of Microgaming-powered online casinos.
