If you’re a fan of ancient Asian-themed slots, then this next one from Habanero called Ways of Fortune, which counts the Ways of Fortune feature, wilds and free spins amongst its main attractions might be of interest to you. It offers a shot at up to 500 coins on a payline!
Ancient Chinese Warrior Theme
There are many Asian-themed slots so how does the developer go about distinguishing theirs from the competition? Well, one of the best ways of doing that is through your illustrations, and you’ll find that Ways of Fortune uses vivid imagery in the composition of the slot, where you can see hues of fantasy-inducing colours from the sky down through to the mountains and hills and down to the architecture.
Chinese lanterns and leaves swing from side to side in the breeze and you can hear the gentle sound of traditional Chinese music. The slot has a calming effect as you can also hear sounds of nature such as birds chirping. The high-win symbols include Chinese Guardian Lions, a dragon, ancient Chinese general’s warrior helmet, and a blade. The low-win symbols consist of the four poker suit symbols forged from red rubies, green emeralds, blue sapphires and yellow topaz.
Ways of Fortune Feature
During the base and free games the topmost spaces in the 3rd, 4th and 5th reels will always contain an identical symbol, this is not common to many slots and helps to increase the odds of not only creating a payline win but one with a higher payout. We liked it!
The Emperor wild symbol can appear on any reel and replace all other symbols except the white horse scatter. Furthermore, a combination of 5 wilds on a payline will award 500 coins. While not always the case, many slots reward players with paylines of as little as two wilds, the absence of which in this slot is somewhat of a negative.
A white horse symbol acts as a scatter with 3, 4 or 5 appearing in any position activating 10, 15 or 25 games respectively. This feature cannot be re-triggered while it is active. We found that while playing, we did manage to trigger the free games every so often.
The Art of War
Ways of Fortune slot is played on 5-reels and 576 way-win-lines. Players can adjust their bets from as little as 28 coins to as much as 280 coins. A payline win is calculated by taking the value in the paytable multiplied by your bet level and coin value. This slot is relatively simple to play and features stunning graphics and audio, and is available on mobile, tablet and pc. While not one of the more exciting Asian themed slot that we’ve played feature-wise, we think that there is enough here to warrant a closer look.
