Foxy Fortunes Pokie Game
For a developer that is perhaps best known for its excellent portrayals of some of the grittiest movies and television shows ever made, Foxy Fortunes is definitely on the cuter side as far as Playtech is concerned. From bright blue skies in the background to playing card icons that look like they could be made from marshmallows, it’s definitely a pleasure to look at if you’re looking for some light relief on the reels. In the full review below, we’ll take a look at whether the game is just as much of a pleasure to play.
Game Type: Video Pokie
Win Lines: 25
Special Features: Wilds, scatters, Bonfire free spins, Lucky Grapes bonus
Top Prize: 5,000 coins
Playtech makes use of its most trusted win line pattern on Foxy Fortunes with 25 of them in play. Bet controls are as precise as we’ve become accustomed to with the developer with different buttons to control both the number of active lines and the bet amount placed on each. Favourites like the Bet Max and Auto Play buttons are in effect on the game, while players also have a chance to either spin normally or opt for Turbo Mode, which sees the reels settling into place far more quickly than you may be accustomed to.
Foxy the Fox takes a starring role in her own game by serving as a wild card. She will only appear on reels two, three and four, but that’s generally sufficient to make for a decent winning combination. She’s also more special than many other wild cards on the basis that landing her on all three of the available reels will trigger one of the main bonus rounds – in addition to completing quite a few win lines as part of the spin itself. The result is a set of fifteen free spins and you can pick up more with absolutely no limits by landing further Foxy combinations within the round. As if that wasn’t enough, every prize won during free spins is instantly tripled in value.
The feature action on Foxy Fortunes doesn’t end there either as there’s also a separate scatter, represented by a bunch of grapes. This leads to the appropriately named Lucky Grapes bonus and Foxy will help out by using a trampoline to grab bunches from the trees as you pick them. She’ll keep on picking until she inexplicably gets tangled up in the trampoline, at which point the round ends and it’s back to spinning the reels.
Game Culture’s Opinion
The use of the wild card as a pseudo scatter to make it even more valuable than normal is a nice little party trick and one that you don’t see all that often on the reels. The fact that it leads to a decent free spins round with there also being a shot at a separate bonus makes Foxy Fortunes one of Playtech’s most enjoyable all-rounders. Give it a spin for yourself to see exactly how everything plays out.
