Spins O' Gold: Fortune Play Review
There are two types of slot players...the ones that are looking for innovation and the ones that love classic models. Blueprint Gaming's Spins O' Gold: Fortune Play offers both of these to players.
On the surface, this game may seem like a normal Irish slot with nothing special going on but the addition of Fortune Play completely revolutionises the game to deliver something different and refreshing to players.
Spins O' Gold: Fortune Play has 5-reels with 10 paylines and contains a free spin round with an expanding symbol that transforms. However, the Fortune Play adds four sets of reels to spin in order to give a more intense experience.
When the slot opens up, it's clear that there is nothing too exciting going on with the visuals. The background is a field full of green grass and plants as well as a rainbow shimmering in the distance.
On the reels, there are typical Irish symbols such as harps, pots of gold, horseshoes, shamrocks, alcohol and the leprechaun himself. None of these symbols looks bad but they definitely do not feel modern.
As for the music, players can expect a jaunty Irish jig that plays throughout spins to create an uplifting spirit. However, it's worth mentioning that the mute button is just left of the reels in case this gets too frustrating.
The base game without Fortune Play is quite dull - but the bonus rounds and Fortune Play build up the intensity and excitement. Many slot developers have created a 4-reel mechanic but Blueprint Gaming's Fortune Play is definitely the easiest to understand.
There isn't a huge amount to understand with this game but the spin button is to the right of the reels and the bet level is to the left. Those wanting Fortune Play (which is worth it) will find it to the left of the reels as well.
Blueprint Gaming often has an under-the-average RTP that is just accepted by players. Spins O' Gold: Fortune Play has an RTP of 95% which is low but compensated by a huge maximum win of 50,000x the stake.
There is no clear way to win the maximum win but anything over 50,000x the stake will be capped. It's surprising that this slot is medium volatility meaning that players will get a mixture of high and low volatility wins. Overall, the win potential averages out quite well but could've been magnificent with a better RTP.
Spins O' Gold: Fortune Play is one of the first Blueprint Gaming slots to use the Fortune Play and it feels like an incredibly valuable addition to iGaming. Many slot developers are trying slots with 4 sets of reels but Blueprint Gaming's is the simplest which often works better with players.
Of course, the game could've been improved with more features such as multipliers and an improved RTP - but Spins O' Gold: Fortune Play is decent enough to give a spin. If you love classical slots and are looking for a little bit of a twist, give Spins O' Gold: Fortune Play a spin.
