Fate of Fortune slot REVIEW
Fate of Fortune ReviewELK is on a creative bender once again, and Fate of Fortune is set in the temple of an oracle worshipped by 3 celtic sorceresses. The unorthodox 5-3-1-3-5 reel setup means that the sole symbol landing on the middle reel will seal your fate on any given spin. The audiovisual presentation is excellent as usual from this developer, and you're in for a feature rich and volatile affair.
It might take a while to settle into the gameplay, and get used to how it all works, but you can always use the free demo version (see above) for that. The 81 betlines pay both ways, and the top-tier premium symbol pays only 2x for 5-oak. You’re going to need multiplier action to do serious damage in other words, and up to a x50 boost to the progressive multiplier in the Unlimited Nudge Spins round can happen at any time.

Fate of Fortune Slot Features
The regular wild can land on any reel, and it steps in for all pay symbols to help you form winning combos. In addition, you have the Expanding Wilds that land on reels 2 or 4 only. These wilds expand horizontally towards the edge of the reel set on either side, which gives you a guaranteed win with whatever symbol is caught in the middle.
Mystery Symbols can land on all reels except the middle one, and they all transform into a randomly selected matching symbol when they land. This can lead to a new win calculation, and these symbols play a central role in the bonus round we’ll get to very soon.
You’ll see a big crystal ball below the reels in the middle, and it awards Fortune’s Favour features at random times during a spin. These are as follows:
Lady Swap – A premium symbol lady is chosen randomly, and all other premium lady symbols are turned into her.
Multiplier – awards a random multiplier up to x50 to any win.
Walking Wild – gives you a wild on the middle reel, and the wild splits in two on the first respins that follows, moving to reels 2 and 4. The respins go on until the wilds have walked off the reel set. You can get other Fortune’s Favour modifiers at the same time.
Locked Wild – adds a wild to the middle reel, and awards a respin. If you don’t win, the wild multiplier is increased by +1. This repeats until you land a winner, and you can trigger the Lady Swap or Multiplier feature when this is going on.
You trigger the Unlimited Nudge Spins bonus round when you land 3 or 4 scatters anywhere in view. You get 1 Mystery Stack if 3 scatters land, and 2 Mystery Stacks if the feature is triggered by 4 scatters. These appear on any reel except the middle, and you can land new Mystery Stacks during the feature also.
You get indefinite free spins where these Mystery Stacks nudge one position down per spin, and they all reveal a random matching pay symbol. A progressive win multiplier increases by +1 per mystery stack nudge, and any Fortune’s Favour multiplier will multiply the nudge multiplier before being applied to the payout. The bonus round goes on as long as there are Mystery Stacks in view.
As usual with ELK, non-UK players can take advantage of their in-game X-iter feature menu. There are 5 different features up for grabs this time, and these are as follows:
100% Win – pay 5x your stake for a guaranteed win.
100% Fortune’s Favour – pay 50x your stake for 3 spins with a Fortune’s Favour trigger on each spin.
Bonus – Pay 100x your stake for 3 or 4 scatters guaranteed on the next spin.
Big Bonus – Pay 200x your stake for 3 or 4 scatters, with a starting bonus round multiplier of x5.
Super Bonus – Pay 500x your stake for 3 or 4 scatters and a bonus round with a guaranteed Fortune’s Favour trigger on each free spin.
The 200 Spins Fate of Fortune Slot Experience
You get to see some of the Fortune’s Favour features in the base game, before we purchase the top-tier Super Bonus around 1:26 into the 6-minute highlights video. We racked up a decent number of larger payouts, and you can see for yourself how we fared by hitting the play button below.
ELK Studio is not afraid of being creative, and there are so many moving parts in Fate of Fortune that one can easily feel a bit overwhelmed at first (or when reading about it). The unusual reel set adds to the confusion, but it boils down to landing wins across the reels with horizontally expanding wilds, mystery symbols and 4 Fortune’s Favour modifiers to help you out in different ways.
The Unlimited Nudge Spins round is the big highlight, of course, and the mystery stacks can sometimes seemingly never end. Combining the win multiplier with the Fortune’s Favour multiplier is key to cracking the 10,000x potential, as regular symbol wins are not worth all that much. This is a volatile and unpredictable affair for sure. However, players who can look past the 95 % RTP, and take their time easing into the gameplay, will probably enjoy the ride.
