Hacksaw Gaming’s latest release is based in a tranquil forest full of beautiful butterflies and little creepy crawlies, the background music is soothing and the birds chirp in the tree’s, let us see if this sends you to sleep or a forest full of fortune!
Forest Fortune is a 5 reel, 5 row slot with a cluster pay mechanic. The game has 1 bonus feature and a few base game features to keep you entertained waiting for those elusive scatters.
- Free Spins Scatter – Land 3 of these to trigger the Free Spins Feature.
- Blue Butterfly – Adds a multiplier on the reel it lands on of 1x, 2x, 5x, 10x, 25x, 50x or 100x.
- Green Butterfly – Multiplies the total of the reel it lands on by x2, x3, x5, x10, x25 or x50.
- Wild Leaf – Triggers the Wind Feature. The wind will blow in a random direction blowing the leaves the same amount of spaces as there are Wild leaves on the reels, fill the screen to win the 1000x stake prize!
- Bumblebee – The Bumblebee adds 1 step to the progress bar on the reel it lands on, fill any reels progress bar to immediately win the top prize of 5000x stake!
- Tornado – The Tornado symbol affects all symbols that have landed with it on that spin and adds all there values to every reel.
Upon landing 3 Scatters or more the game launches into the Free Spin mode where you start with 3 spins. The Free Spins will continue until you get 3 non winning spins in a row. Every time you get a winning symbol the Free Spins counter resets to 3, the leaves count as non winning symbols.
Each reel has a multiplier value and a progress bar above it. Butterflies affect the multiplier and Bumblebees fill up the progress bar, each progress bar needs 3 Bumblebees to fill it and award the maximum win of 5000x stake.
The bonus below finished with a 270x win and was only my 3rd bonus in testing.
Forest Fortune Paytable
The paytable in Forest Fortune is dynamic and changes with your stake, the example below is set to £1 per spin. We start with the Strawberries, Blackberries, Blueberries, Mushrooms and Acorns all paying 25x stake for a cluster of 15 or more.
Moving on to the premium symbols we have the Yellow Ladybug, Green Beetle and Brown Beetle all paying 40x stake for a cluster of 15+, the Wild is the top symbol and pays 1000x stake for 25, it says 25+ but there are only 25 spaces for it to land!
Final Thoughts On Forest Fortune
Forest Fortune has an RTP of 96.31%, the volatility is rated High and the maximum win is 5,000x stake.
My immediate observation when I started playing Forest Fortune was that it looked and felt like a calmer, lighter version of Chaos Crew with a few new features in the bonus, however, when you take into consideration the instant jackpot feature with the Bumblebees you realise it’s not lighter at all, it just has a smaller max win but just as large personality as it’s older sibling. I really like it and that’s why I’m going to say it’s an equal to Chaos Crew as the gameplay and more relaxing vibe make up for the smaller capped win in spades.
