Fate of Fortune Slot (ELK)

The Fate of Fortune Slot (ELK)The fate of Fortune adds to the list of slots that ELK Studios has released in the recent past. As an experienced gamer, I have had great and fun moments playing games from this developer, and the usual details have gone into Fate of Fortune.

Theme wise, the developer borrowed inspiration from Morai, or the Fates (legends of Ancient Greece mention), and I will share my unbiased review playing the title for real money:

Game Set-Up

This slot machine is set on 5 reels that come in varying sizes (5-3-1-3-5 symbols), and 81 ways to win.

For the special features, I encountered an expanding wild symbol, mystery symbols, free spins, scatters, plus several modifiers and these can also be triggered randomly.

Betting and Prizes

Wagers here start from as low as $0.20, and the highest that the developer allows per slot is $100 per spin.

Payouts are quite high, and they can get to as much as 10,000x the stake. However, you may be disappointed to hear that although the slot is high in volatility, the developer has given it a below-average RTP of 95%.

The Fate of Fortune Features

I enjoyed the long list of available special features, and one of them is the Wilds that appear in two (2nd and 4th) out of the five available reels. These expand and move towards the 1st and the 5th reels, and this is how they end up transforming symbols present within the same row.

Mystery symbols land on the first two and the last two reels, and in both instances, they are transformed into one version of the symbol.

Modifiers are randomly triggered with the help of the Crystal Ball. The Fortune’s Favor feature has several options like the Lady Swap (transforms all Lady icons into one that is picked), Multipliers (can offer payments of up to 50x more), Walking Wilds (this one split and moves from the 3rd reel to the 2nd and 4th ones, and it is accompanied by respins that go on until it leaves the game area), and last but not least is the Locked Wilds (will appear as a sticky wild on the 3rd reel, and has an increasing multiplier that keeps on increasing until you land a winning combo).

Free spins are always my favourite feature on any slot, and I was able to enjoy a couple of them on Fate of Fortune.

You will need the scatter symbols to trigger them, and these symbols must land on reels 1, 2, 4, and 5. Getting 3 or 4 triggering scatters rewards you with 1 or 2 mystery stacks.

Theme & Design

From the look of things, it appears like ELK Studios borrowed inspiration for this game from the mythology of the ancients, and in particular legends of the Nords if the background design is anything to go by.

The Fates are represented by pretty women donning different coloured hair (green, blue, and red). Rune-like Royals represent the low-value icons.

Conclusion

The fate of Fortune is a fun slot machine with an excellent mix of features. However, if you plan to play it for real money, then you must be aware of its low RTP which is a deal-breaker.
