Arctic Fortune is a recent release from Microgaming, and you can tell both from its modern design and from the way it forms its combinations, relying on 1024 ways to win. The slot has a theme where you get a mix of Viking related imagery and a few that belong in the colder regions of the northern hemisphere. It appears to be a story about Vikings that went out to explore the arctic regions, and found a treasure with the help of a map. The biggest payout mentioned in the game is worth $3,000.
Betting & Jackpots
The game might have 1024 ways to win, but the bets are placed on the equivalent of 50 paylines. The minimum bet is at $0.50, with the line bet at $0.01. You can use up to 10 coins of $0.20 on those lines though, so the wager can be at $2 per line, or $100 total.
The jackpot is awarded through one of the Viking icons, and its value is at 1,500x. This would mean 15,000 coins, or $3,000.
In a slot with ways to win, the combinations form whenever matching symbols are on adjacent reels, going from left to right. That’s how you get paid here, not with symbols that have to be on fixed payline positions.
The Arctic Fortune logo is the symbol that acts as the wild. You will take advantage of its substitution abilities whenever it appears on the reel on which it is needed, with the other reels having matching regular symbols on them. You only get the wild on the 2nd and 4th reels.
The Map symbol is also important, and it acts as a scatter which pays by appearing in any position on the five reels. You just need at least three, and you will get a feature where you win a maximum of 40 free games, with multipliers going up to 6x. Payouts will bring the player up to 9,000 coins, on top of the free spins. You can also retrigger free spins, with 3 to 5 extra rounds for just as many scatters.
It’s an excellent design, which takes you to the Arctic regions, and it shows you on the reels only symbols with the proper theme. You have Vikings, treasure chests, maps, longboats and huge white wolves, and all of them were very well drawn and colored, with plenty of details in each case.
With 1024 ways to win, with a lot of free spins and with high multipliers, plus the great design, Arctic Fortune does a very good job at convincing the player to spin its reels.
