Fiona’s Christmas Presents Review
Fans of Gold Coin Studio slots will instantly recognize that this is a follow-on game to Fiona’s Fortune. And once again there’s the Bonus Wheel, the Express Collect feature, free spins and that Link & Win bonus.
The original Fiona’s Fortune takes place in a summer landscape, but it’s all changed for Fiona’s Christmas Fortune. The landscape has been given a wintry makeover, while Fiona has changed out of her green dress and into a red and white fur-trimmed outfit more in keeping with the festive theme.
The game symbols have also been overhauled, so instead of mushrooms, four-leaf clovers and foaming glasses of ale, you’ll discover gingerbread houses and gift-wrapped presents. Even the triggering symbol, which is a pot of gold in the original, has become a sack of presents for this version.
Nothing much has changed in terms of gameplay. Landing cash-filled baubles on the reels in combination with the sack of presents on reel 5 will award their value in the Express Collect feature. And if you land the sack of presents along with the Bonus Wheel icon, you’ll activate the Wheel Bonus, which comes stacked with prizes, including the three Jackpots.
Three Christmas wreath Scatters activate the free spins bonus round, awarding 10 free spins. Throughout the feature, the Express Collect bonus comes with increased payouts, so this is where you’ll find the biggest and best returns.
The prize symbols for the Express Collect and Link & Win bonuses come with attached cash values worth from 1x – 200x your bet, with the biggest payouts landing during the free spins bonus round.
There are three Jackpot prizes, which can be won through the Wheel Bonus, or through the Link & Win feature. Payouts are based on your wager, offering the following returns:
- Mega Jackpot: 5,000x
- Major Jackpot: 400x
- Mini Jackpot: 20x
Activating the Wheel Bonus awards one of the three Jackpot prizes, a multiplier worth 2x, 5x or 10x your stake, or the Link & Win feature round.
Gold Coin Studios have done a great job of updating their earlier release with a festive theme, which is sure to appeal to fans of the original Fiona’s Fortune slot. But even if that title has passed you by, there’s a lot to love about this festive slot, not least the Bonus Wheel, which can award some big cash payouts.
The top win of 5,000x your stake certainly isn’t the highest we’ve seen, but the game’s medium volatility puts it within just about every player’s reach. Give this slot a try for yourself – we think it’s too much fun to save just for Christmas!
