Arctic Fortune is a video slots game taking players on a Viking adventure in an arctic landscape. Elements of both the Viking history as well as arctic elements fill the reels in both the design of the game and the actual symbols.
The game was designed and developed by Microgaming, one of the leading casino software developers in the world. The game offers its players five reels and a unique one thousand and twenty-four ways of winning feature which is a great slots pair to online roulette gambling games.
The Thousand Ways of Winning
Microgaming’s Arctic Fortune video slots game offers its players the unique one thousand and twenty-four ways of winning feature. Given so many opportunities to win prizes, players are pretty much guaranteed a winning combination with almost every spin. However, due to the fact that players can receive more frequent wins, these payouts are generally also of a lower value than in other Microgaming video slots games without the unique feature.
The highest jackpot that players can receive lies at one thousand five hundred credits, which will be paid out if players land five shielded warrior symbols on an active pay line. The second highest paying symbol is the female warrior, which, in turn, is followed by the Viking man with the helmet. The symbols following this one are the treasure chest, boat, white wolf, and the wine-filled horn.
In order to achieve a winning combination, players will need to line up three or more symbols on consecutive reels, starting from the first reel, but these symbols do not need to line up in one straight row. This, together with the fact that there are four reel positions as opposed to the standard three reel positions, will allow players to utilise the one thousand and twenty-four ways of winning feature.
The Arctic Wild Symbols
The Arctic Fortune video slots game also includes a wild symbol, which will operate as standard online casino wild symbols. The wild symbol can substitute any of the other symbols, thereby helping players complete as yet incomplete winning pay lines, make up the best possible winning combinations, and receive the highest possible pay outs. However, the Arctic Fortune wild symbol can only appear on the second and the fourth reels of the game.
The Scatter Symbol and Bonus
The only symbol that the Arctic Fortune wild symbol cannot substitute for is the game’s scatter symbols, which is portrayed by the icon of the old and worn map. The scatter symbol can appear anywhere on the reels.
If players manage to land at least three or even more old map scatter symbols anywhere on the reels, this will trigger the Arctic Fortune special bonus game.
In the bonus game, players will have to shoot large spiders in order to reveal a certain number of free spins and a bonus multiplier. Once players have tackled the spiders, they will also be presented with one giant spider, which they will have to shoot. If they achieve to do this and hit the door levers, the bonus game will come to an end. Players will then receive a bonus pay out of up to nine thousand credits. After the bonus round has come to an end, players will be able to play out the free spins that they had previously received with the multiplier that they have been rewarded with.
