Idol of Fortune Overview
Here’s another new online slot release by Play’n Go and this new game is called Idol of Fortune.
The game uses an Indian theme. And focuses around a famous god, Ganesha. The famous elephant god. I think this is a really nice theme which isn’t overdone yet. And also smart to tap into the Indian market, which has more than 1 billion people living there.
The game uses 5 reels which are each 3 symbols high and comes with 243 ways instead of lines. Symbols play from left to right, starting on reels 1, no matter where on the reels.
All medium and high paying symbols, except wild and bonus symbols, appear stacked on all reels. These are all types of animals, which look very cool and colorful. The low paying card symbols don’t.
Wild and bonus symbols appear on all reels.
Idol of Fortune comes with a nice maximum payout of 10.000 times your bet.

Mystery symbols, which only appear during free spins, appear on all reels. When a mystery symbols hits, it will stay on the reel and expanding one spot up or down after each spin. Once they have filled a full reel, they are removed for the next spin. All mystery symbols change into one and the same symbol after each spin.
You can’t win more free spins during this feature.

During any normal spin one or more reels can randomly become gold.
When one or more wild symbols land on these golden reels you will trigger a pick bonus.
Keep picking symbols until you matched three of the same. The rewards will award a jackpot of 10, 25, 500 or 5.000 times your bet.
Play’n Go managed to release another pretty cool game with Idol of Fortune.
The theme is very nice and looks beautiful, even if you might not be that interested in the Indian theme, it works.
Then the gameplay. The jackpots, or Gold Reel Wild Prize, is a nice added bonus. It’s nothing new, but that doesn’t matter.
What I really enjoy is the free spins feature. I like the fact that you can pick your number of free spins and mystery symbols, or gamble and get a worse or better outcome. But I also really like the sticky mystery symbols that expand after each spin. They can really award some great wins with enough symbols on screen.
I read somewhere that the game isn’t very unique, but to be honest, I can’t think of another game which uses this free spins feature. But maybe I missed it.
