Vault of Fortune is a 5 reel slot, with each of the reels containing 3 symbols. The slot uses paylines, with 20 in total and you form wins when you land 3 identical symbols across adjacent reels along those paylines, playing from left to right.
Whilst this slot could be considered an Egyptian themed slot, it is arguably more like a heist than it is a reflection of history. Set in a museum warehouse filled with Egyptian artefacts, you play the role of the thief, as you attempt a speedy getaway with pockets overflowing with Egyptian treasures.
Drop Downs and Multipliers – Every time you form a winning combination, the symbols involved will disappear, existing symbols will drop down and new symbols will fall into the missing spaces. This will give you an additional chance to win on a single spin and the process continues as long as you keep landing wins. Each time a drop down is completed the multiplier, which begins at 1x the bet will increase by 1. When no additional drop downs are completed the multiplier will reset to 1x the bet.
Wild – The Wild symbol is the detonator and when it lands it will expand to fill the reels and 3 symbols above it. This does not mean that the reels increase in size but in the event of a drop down including those Wild symbols you are guaranteed that more will replace the ones that contribute to wins. Wilds will substitute for all symbols other than Scatters.
Scatter – The Scatter symbol is the “Puzzle”, which will trigger the Free Spins feature when you land 3 or more of them anywhere on the reels at once.
Free Spins – 3, 4 or 5 Scatter symbols will award 8, 10 or 12 Free Spins respectively. Multipliers that were in place on the triggering spin will be carried over to the Free Spins and, unlike the base game, when your drop downs have finished on a single spin the multiplier will not reset for the next one. The feature can be retriggered.
