On a regular basis, you will find that Pragmatic Play is launching new slot machines, and Master Chen’s Fortune is one of the releases for the fall of 2018. It’s Chinese themed, with fortune and luck elements implemented in it.
5 reels which spin in Master Chen’s Fortune have 9 active lines for you. There are some excellent prizes that can be won, even $50,000 being offered for the best combinations which are formed. Moving on to the feature list, we find that the slot has wilds, scatters and multipliers to give us, but not much else.
Betting and Prizes
The wagers of Master Chen’s Fortune will be placed on 9 lines, and so they require the use of 9 or more coins. It’s going to work with multiples of 9 coins actually, and as it allows you to have up to 10 coins per line, the bet can have 90 coins at most total. The coin value is going to vary within a standard range for Pragmatic Play, which varies between $0.09 and $45. The line bet goes as high as $5.
The Lucky Cat is your trigger for the big prize of the game. It’s a regular symbol, which pays up to $25,000 on its own and up to $50,000 if the wild assists with a multiplier. For 9 active lines, the game’s potential will reach $450,000 in a single round.
The 96.48% RTP which Pragmatic Play announced for this slot is above the industry’s average, so this is definitely one of the pros of the game. Pragmatic Play lets us know that this is a low to medium volatility slot.
Master Chen's Fortune Slot Features
While you’re not going to find anything terribly unique in the list of features used here, they’re certainly going to help make the slot more profitable, so while they’re simple, they’re a welcome sight.
First, check out Master Chen himself, the symbol which you will get for the wild’s role on the reels 2, 3 and 4. The winning combinations which have one or more wilds in them will get multiplied by 2x. You don’t receive prizes directly from the wild. The symbol has a huge influence on the potential of the game, since it can apply its multiplier to the jackpot combo.
The only other feature symbol is the scatter, and its image is that of Chinese Writing, in gold. You get paid by it when these symbols appear multiple times in view. As few as two symbols pays you (1x the bet), but the top payout of 100x the bet is going to come from five icons of this type.
Theme & Design
Pragmatic Play isn’t very original in Master Chen’s Fortune, the slot machine offering a theme inspired by China and showing a god of wealth in its main role (or simply a wealthy character). Besides the Master Chen Wild, you have Chinese Writing, a Lucky White Cat, a Money Tree, oranges sitting on gold coins, a pot of gold and six colorful Royals.
The five reels of this game are encased in a golden temple, with borders made out of the precious metal, with gold coins hanging from the sides and with red decorations behind this area. It’s a well designed game, even though it’s not very unique visually.
Master Chen’s Fortune doesn’t excel at feature delivery or at offering a unique look, but the RTP is on the high side and the rewards can be excellent inside.
