Arctic Fortune is a highly-enjoyable Microgaming video slot with five reels and 1,024 ways-to-win. It features wilds, scatters, multipliers, free spins, a bonus round, and it has a top jackpot of 15,000 coins – that makes this a very lucrative game to play.
The theme of Arctic Fortune is based on a group of Vikings who are rampaging their way around the ice-cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean on a longship. Around the corners of the reels, you’ll see icicles, waves and snow flurries along with the ship’s paraphernalia. The soundtrack features a pounding drumbeat and stirring violin strings that add a sense of adventure and an impending battle…….
Thankfully you can mute the sound if this becomes annoying.
The game’s symbols include Arctic wolves, horns of red wine, treasure chests, Viking longships, and male and female warriors.
There are no pay-lines in the Arctic Fortune slot, but there are, however, 1,024 possible winning combinations, and that sounds pretty good odds to us.
Each of the five reels features four symbols, and these can appear in any location to complete a winning combination.
The animation sequences are pretty breathtaking, so look out for the Viking longboat sailing by with the Northern Lights twinkling in the background. Plus, the Arctic Wolf’s breath becoming visible as he moves through the snow, and the female Viking Warrior spinning her spear.
The betting range runs from 0.50 up to 100.00, and the coin bet range runs from 0.01 to 0.20.
The Arctic Fortune logo is the slot’s wild symbol, and it only appears on the second and fourth reel. It substitutes for all other symbols except the scatter.
The Treasure Map acts as the scatter in Arctic Fortune, and three or more of these will trigger the bonus game. However, if two or more appear anywhere on the reels, you’ll receive a payout.
Three or more Treasure Map symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger the Shoot the Spiders bonus round, which can award you as many as 40 spins with a multiplier of up to 6x. How many spins and the value of the multiplier you receive is determined by which spiders you hit.
The second stage of the bonus round includes a bonus award that is multiplied by the total number of coins wagered. If, during the free spins round, three or more scatter symbols appear, you’ll earn between three and five additional free spins.
The Arctic Fortune slot is worth a try, even if it’s just for the fact that it offers more than 1,000 ways to win. The spectacular graphics and interactive bonus round make playing this game a thoroughly enjoyable experience. So if you fancy a bit of Viking-style pillaging then this is the game for you.
