Phantasmic Fortunes slot game can be found at casinos offering iSoftBet software. iSoftBet are one of the newer casino software providers on the market but they have managed to tie down some impressive branded slots game contracts. As a standard iSoftBet do publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slot games within the game help file that comes with each of their slots. As such, we can tell that the House Edge of Phantasmic Fortunes is 4.02%.
Phantasmic Fortunes is a 5 reel slot and each reel is 3 symbols in height. Instead of paylines you form wins when you land 3 or more matching symbols across adjacent reels, playing from left to right. Of course, things aren’t quite that simple. The reels can expand and each one has the potential to double in size, meaning that in theory there is a chance that there can be 7776 different ways to win.
This slot has a Circus theme but like the winways and the size of the reels there is more to the theme than meets the eye. There is magic and mystery on display here too and that magic takes a dark form with crows, potions and skulls littering the reels. There are aspects of voodoo magic on display here, that the spells being cast are not the kind you will see at an everyday circus act.
Wild – The Wild symbol can only land on reels 2-5 and when it does it will substitute for all symbols other than Scatters.
Scatter – The “Ringmaster Poster” symbol will trigger the Phantasmic Free Spins feature when you land 3 or more of them anywhere on the reels. Scatters can fill more than one symbols space and they can only land on reels 2, 3 and 4.
Diamond – “Diamond” symbols can land on any reel and when they do they will increase the size of the reel by 1 symbol space. More than one can land on the reels at once.
Magic and Phantasmic Wilds – Magic and Phantasmic and Magic Wilds are only available when the modifier is triggered.
Expanding Ways – As you collect “Diamond” symbols you will increase the height of the reels and once a reel reaches the Orb that sits above it, it will trigger the Orb and all the reels will return to their original height. This is available in the base game and the Free Spins.
Orb Prizes – Above each of the reels sits an Orb that will contain either a multiplier or the trigger for a Bonus feature. In the base game the multiplier ranges from 5x-200x the bet and in the Free Spins the multipliers range from 5x-100x the bet.
Phantasmic Free Spins – You trigger the Phantasmic Free Spins either by landing 3 or more bonus symbols on the reels or by expanding a reel fully that sits underneath a Phantasmic Free Spins Bonus Orb. There is no set number of spins, instead you play until you have a reel that fully expands underneath an Orb that has “Collect written on it. The “Collect Orbs” also come with multipliers that are applied to the triggering bet level. If you triggered the feature via a reel Orb then there will be 2, 3 or 4 Phantasmic Wilds added to the reels.
Magic Wild Free Spins – You can only trigger the Magic Wild Free Spins via an Orb. The Free Spins will be the same as Phantasmic Free Spins, in that you end the feature when you hit a collect Orb. The one significant difference is that 2, 3 or 4 random Magic Wild symbols are added. Up to 6 random Magic Wild symbols can be added in total across all reels.
Magic Boost – After any Orb win or Bonus, Magic Boost can randomly be triggered. This will instantly increase the size of up to two reels to create additional winning ways from the start.
Phantasmic Fortunes is a stunning looking slot and it comes a host of features, the central one being the most exciting. There are 3 different Free Spins games to play, along with a random prize modifier and your standard Wild symbols. The house edge is a little higher than I would have wanted it to be but that expanding reel feature is good enough for me to consider this one worth recommending.
