Red Tiger Gaming is well known for their collection of Asian style slot machines, often focusing on China, and always delivering an interesting experience. Asian Fortune is their latest slot machine to feature this type of theme, which clearly is designed with the players from that part of the world in mind. Translated in English, the game is easily available to anyone though.
Don’t expect to find a lot of lines here, only 8 are available on 5 reels. Red Tiger Gaming relied on wild symbols and free spins with expanding golden symbols, while on the payout side you get up to 1,111x per line.
Betting and Prizes
The wager selection tends to be easy in Red Tiger releases. There is a list of allowed wager values, which has a range of $0.20 to $40. This gives the player the option to use up to $2 per bet line.
The single most valuable combination which you can form, the one involving the wild, will pay 1,111x. The downside is that only one line can get it, so filling up the reels with golden tiles during free spins can offer more. At that point, you could get 888x from each line, or 7104x total.
The slot doesn’t offer a huge jackpot, and the RTP that’s mentioned for it doesn’t look all that impressive either. It’s set to 95.15%, which I’d consider below the average offer of a modern slot machine.
Asian Fortune Slot Features
Wild Dragons will be your main feature icons in Asian Fortune. You don’t get any others actually, as scatters seem to be missing. Having three Wild Dragons land on the reels will get you access to the free spins. The same symbols are used to retrigger the feature, and this can happen several times.
Before we get to the free spins, a few words should be said about the wild’s own role in the game. It’s that of the substitute, the role which we’ve come to expect from it, and on which we often count to get us paid. With good reason, the wild has become one of the most popular features in modern slot machines.
The Golden Symbols, the ones which will pay the most (888x per line formed), are the icons showing you the Frog, Turtle or Elephant. These will become expanding symbols if you reach the free spins, allowing for the possibility of filling up the reels with matching symbols of this type. At this point, it becomes possible to get the game jackpot, of 7104x.
There is a second possible big win here, as Wild Dragons can appear on a single pay line during the free spins, covering all positions and paying 1111x. This can only happen once per spin though, so you can’t get the reels filled with top paying symbols.
Theme & Design
The Asian angle is not a new one for Red Tiger Gaming, a developer whose entire collection seems to be aimed either at the Eastern or Western side of the world. Fortune related imagery, statues of legendary creatures (frogs, elephants or turtles sitting on gold coins), along with Wild Asian Dragons and Royals which look like Mahjong pieces, these all contribute to make the game attractive and appropriate for this theme. The quality is very good, but for a Red Tiger Gaming release that’s never a surprise.
Asian Fortune will deliver awesome graphics, at least one or two unique bonuses, but only below average payouts and RTP.
