Codex of Fortune Features

Fortune Respins

If players manage to land 2 scatter symbols alongside a winning spin then all the non-winning symbols are removed from the reels and the winning ones remain locked in place with that symbol becoming collectable. The reels respin with only blanks and the collectable symbol landing.

If more symbols land on the reels then they're collected and another respin is awarded. For every 5 symbols that land the codex moves up one horizontal notch to the next multiplier, this is known as Fortune Wins

Fortune Wins

Fortune Wins is a bonus game that's built into Fortune Respins and the Free Spins features. 

There are 7 levels in total with the highest win on Level 7 being worth 10,000x the player's stake. Players will see their win multiplied by wherever the multiplier player has managed to reach on the Codex, the payouts are as follows:

During this bonus and the free spins bonus players can land special key symbols that automatically take players up an entire level.

Save the Keys

When the Fortune Respin feature comes to an end the Save the Keys feature kicks in. Here you can use the keys you've collected to collect a win from the Fortune Wins, or alternatively, you can save them to get better prize values during the free spins round later on.

Free Spins

Players can trigger the free spins bonus by landing three scatter symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5. Before the free spins round begins a bonus reel spins, this will reward players with anywhere between 7 and 13 free spins, as well as allows players to pick a special collectable symbol (and potentially an additional key symbol).

All collectable symbols (and a special +10 collectable symbol) that land on the reels during the bonus are collected to fill a Fortune Wins meter. Each time the meter is filled up by 20 spaces the player will move one step up the Fortune Wins. 

Players can trigger an additional five free spins by landing scatter symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5.

Codex of Fortune review

Codex of Fortune is a truly opulent 5-reel, 40 payline slot developed by NetEnt that boasts an intricate system of bonus features and mechanics that revolve around a golden codex that sits to the left of the game reels. This luxury-themed slot boasts Fortune Respins, Fortune Wins and Free Spins that can see players win a maximum of 10,000x their stake.  


As you'd expect from any new NetEnt slot, this game is pretty easy on the eye thanks to its classy Art Nouveau design. To the left of the game reels is a large golden Codex whilst the reels themselves are adorned with expensive and luxurious looking symbols. Low paying symbols are your standard J, Q, K, A (that look to be encrusted with diamonds) whilst high-paying symbols are all elaborately designed animals and items that look like priceless broaches. These are a blue shell, a green koi carp, a golden turtle, an orange owl and a red lion. The game's wild symbol is a quaint butterfly whilst the scatter is an elegant peacock,

It's not something we thought we'd say about an online slot, but the game's music is beautiful, mesmerising and genuinely relaxing. Don't worry, you won't be nodding off right away, the soundtrack does ramp up a notch when scatter symbols land and when wins and bonus features are triggered.


This slot is incredibly easy to navigate, despite being a little bit unusual when you take the golden codex to the left of the reels into account. Players control the game using a set of striking blue buttons found along the bottom left-hand side of the game screen. These include an info, stake selection, autoplay and spin buttons.

Despite being easy to work your way around, the game can get a little bit confusing when it comes to bonus features and mechanics in our honest opinion. The codex comes into play and begins working its magic whenever players land 2 scatter symbols alongside a standard winning combination of symbols on one spin. 

Win Potential

This high volatility slot has an RTP of 96% and can see players win a maximum of 10,000x their stake, so all in all it's pretty standard with a good winning potential.  

Our Verdict

This NetEnt creation is just a little bit too much for us. On paper this game looks incredibly difficult to understand, it's certainly not something you can just pick up and play straight away and expect to truly understand what's going on. Admiteddly after a while it does get better and it's genuinely a quite a good game once you've gained an understanding for all its intricacies, but still it's just a little bit to fiddly to blow us away.
