Phantasmic Fortunes Slot (iSoftBet)
Phantasmic Fortune is a title from iSoftBet, and the slot borrows inspiration from the black magic world, which could be one of the reasons for its darker appearance
For this title, iSoftBet uses the Xpanding Ways system which means that the game area is capable of expanding.
I tried out this slot and here is my review:
Phantasmic Fortunes uses the 5x3 setup which is quite common with modern slots. The slot offers up to 243 ways to win, but with a possibility to increase.
With the help of the Xpanding Ways system, the slot can expand to as many as 6 rows with up to 7,776 ways to win.
The features of this slot include three wild variants, free spins, scatters, and a Magic Boost.
Betting and Prizes
To place a wager, all that you are required to do is to select the wager from the provided betting range of between $0.20 and $20 per spin.
Even with the Xpanding Ways system, Phantasmic Fortune does not offer good potential, and the highest possible win is 1,000x the stake.
The situation is complicated by the fact that the slot is high in volatility, yet low in the top payout.
Phantasmic Fortunes Slot Features
The slot offers some very interesting features like a combination of Orbs and Xpanding Ways.
The Xpanding Ways mechanism uses the Diamond scatter, and these symbols must appear on each reel, so as to give the column in question a boost. You will need several Diamonds so as to fully expand a reel. This is the only way to get the highest number of ways to win.
Once a reel is expanded fully, the Orb’s contents will be activated, and the Orb with come with either the wilds, Collect messages, or other prizes. After you are awarded your prize, the reel will go back to its original size, whereby, you will start all over again.
The Orbs offers features like:
Phantasmic Wilds: they appear in stacked form, and can cover up 2-4 reels.
Magic Wilds: these are random features, and with their help, the reels will get several Magic Wilds.
Free Spins: The Bonus orb will assist you to trigger the free spins.
Magic Boost is another random feature, and it can appear as a result of the Orbs, or the free spins. This feature can boost reels 1-2, which makes it quite easy to land the Orbs.
Theme & Design
Phantasmic Fortune has a dark appearance with the background having a table and some stage curtains.
The symbols include black top hats, a raven, playing cards, a pocket watch, green potions, and four low-value card suits.
I love the graphics and general design of this slot, but it’s the norm with this developer.
Phantasmic Fortunes slot is pretty awesome, and I love the way iSoftBet has used it to introduce players to the Xpanding Ways mechanic.
However, the developer doesn’t appear to be fair with this slot considering that it is highly volatile, yet it offers very low payouts.
