Fortunes of the Fox (Foxy Fortunes) is a 5-reel, 25-payline online slot designed and developed by Playtech. The theme is a comical fox in the wild and his antics with the camper and his hound. Expect verdant and hilly meadows under clear blue skies, complete with lilting background music.
Gameplay and Symbols in Fortunes of the Fox
The symbols in this video slot represent things found in a woody camping site. There are cooking pots set on a fire, a dilapidated-looking tent, an oldish-looking camper and the usual 9, 10, J, Q, K and A symbols of lower values.
The fox is the Wild, and only appears on reels two, three and four. When the fox appears on the third reel, the player is afforded the chance to win a prize by using the Wild as a substitute for all other symbols except the Scatter, to complete a winning combo.
A bunch of grapes is the Scatter so a player does not need the Scatter on a set payline to win. When three or more Scatters appear, a side game comes on.
Bonfire Free Spins and Lucky Grapes Bonus Feature
The Wild triggers the free spins bonus feature if three land anywhere on reels two, three and four. This is the bonfire free spins feature. When a voice over announces that “Foxy and Hound are taking some time out of the chase to relax by the bonfire”, the player wins fifteen free games. All winnings are multiplied 3x during this bonus feature. A player gets more free spins if he lands three more Wilds on the center reels. As long as the Wild lands in the correct spot, the free spins bonus feature is re-triggered over and over.
The lucky grapes bonus is triggered when three or more Scatters land anywhere on the reels. The fox uses a trampoline to grab bunches of grapes. There are 6 bunches of grapes and a player has to grab them in order to win prizes.
For a very basic online slot, this one is not only fun to play but has over 95% RTP.
