Prepare to set sail as Relax Gaming has taken players on deck with its latest ocean-dwelling slot release, Lure of Fortune.
Lure of Fortune is a 5×5 reel slot with cluster-pays and a maximum win of up to x50,000 the player’s stake.
Variable – medium, high or extremely high
96.1 per cent
Low value symbols come in the form of playing card suit-shaped seashells, with diamonds, spades, clubs and hearts. These symbols can offer between x0.2 and x11 the player’s wager, depending on the number of identical symbols that land in a winning cluster.
Meanwhile, different creatures depict the medium value symbols, with blue worms, pink fish, green eels and red octopuses offering between x0.4 and x22 the player’s stake.
High value symbols are represented by yellow fishermen, providing wins between x1 and x30 the player’s wager.
Bonus pearl symbols are also available, triggering the bonus game mode if three or more scatters land on the same spin.
Cascading wins occur throughout the game, causing winning symbols to disappear after providing their payouts to make way for new symbols.
Each win is formed when four or more identical symbols land adjacent to each other, with clusters able to be formed with up to 25 symbols.
Throughout the base game, a multiplier table sits beside the reel set. On random spins, multipliers between x1 and x128 will be depicted next to each paytable symbol, with any wins formed by that symbol being enhanced by its respective multiplier.
Additionally, each symbol that starts the spin with a multiplier of x1 will have its multiplier doubled for each cluster win involving that symbol.
This upgraded multiplier will then be applied to any wins with the same symbol that occurs on the same spin when the cascading symbols fall into place.
For the game’s three volatility levels, the medium volatility option offers a max win of x5,000 with multipliers of up to x32 available, while the high option allows for a max win of x20,000 with multipliers of up to x64.
Moreover, the extremely high volatility option allows for a max win of x50,000 with symbol multipliers able to reach x128.
In the bonus game mode, players are taken to a special tower-themed board on which five fish are present at the bottom of five empty reels.
Each fish that appears will start with a multiplied bet amount at the bottom of the grid, while a bonus row sits beneath them. On this row, special features or extra fish symbols can appear to enhance the game.
The aim of the game is to get the fish as high up the reels as possible, as multipliers sit beside each row that increase from x1 on the bottom row where the fish start, to x8, seven rows above the fish.
While each game mode starts with three spins that reset with each bonus symbol, every bonus symbol that appears will reset the number of spins to three.
Underneath each fish on the bonus row, hammers can appear, which smash each fish on its respective reel up one row at a time.
Payer symbols are also available, revealing a value and adding it to all fish symbols in its reel. Meanwhile, double symbols can appear, causing each fish symbol in its reel to be multiplied by x2.
Heart spawner symbols can drop into play on the bonus row, copying a fish symbol and its value and pasting it one row below the selected fish.
Furthermore, extra fish symbols can spawn on the bottom row, bringing new opportunities to win.
Next to the five bonus cells on the very bottom row, a special golden pipe can shoot more enchantments into play.
Golden hammers will push all fish symbols up one row, while golden payers will increase the value of all fish on the board.
Golden multipliers will double all fish values on the board, while pearl symbols can also appear, causing the spins counter to start resetting to four instead of three.
Finally, persistent hammers, persistent payers and persistent spawners can appear, repeating each individual feature on all remaining spins. These enhancements will only apply to one reel at a time.
