About Plenty O’ Fortune
The graphics on Plenty O’ Fortune are smooth, slick and full of wonderful animations that show how well Playtech are getting to grips with the art of Flash 11. This includes big golden fountains of coins and an opening video that’s like something off a 1960s Guinness advert.
Some might argue that this machine is a little bit of a cliché, but we’d counter that by saying that it sticks with a strong type and plays this theme for a bunch of good laughs. When you’ve got through the intro then it’s over to the base game grid, which is set in a secluded glade. The bet controls are all fashioned out of carved wood and the poker symbols on the reels have a touch of the Gaelic about their construction. What else could you expect?
Sound-wise there’s a lot going on with Plenty O’ Fortune. From the delightful tinkling sounds that play every time you hit the spin button through to the clicks and bells that accompany the reel play, everything about this machine works well with the theme.
We even like the birdsong that gives you a bit of a springtime feeling as you play your way through the base-game. Yes it’s predictable, it doesn’t raise any eyebrows, but it is a whole load of fun.
You get a five reel base game in Plenty O’ Fortune with twenty pay-lines on which you can make your bets. Double click your way through your spins if you’re looking for fast play, as this will allow you to instantly stop the reels in their final positions.
You’ve got a whole bunch of different scatters here that grant access to the various bonus rounds on offer from this feature rich title as well as a wild symbol that’ll help you complete your wins. However, the jewel in the crown is the stacked signature Plenty O’ Fortune jackpot symbol that’ll help you on your way to some big prizes if you can manage to hit a number of them across multiple pay-lines on the grid.
There are three different bonus features available on Plenty O’ Fortune. The first of these is the Wishing Well scatter prize. Stop in three or more of the special Wishing Well symbols anywhere in view on the grid to spark a golden fountain of coins that flow out of the reels – fortunately the leprechaun is there with his hat to catch the lucre, some of which you’re able to purloin as a prize. The more scatters you use to activate this feature, the bigger the bonus cash on offer here.
Stop in three or more of the pots of gold scatters to start the End of the Rainbow feature. This sees you climbing a trail game on a mountain where each step requires you to select a one of an ever decreasing number of pots. These will either reveal a cash prize, or a collect icon that will pay you out the total of your prizes accrued in the game thus far and send you back to the base-game grid. If you manage to make it all the way to the top of the hill then you’ll win the a huge slice of cash. Again, the more scatters you use to activate this feature, the bigger the prizes up for grabs.
Finally there’s the free spin round, activated when you hit three coins anywhere on the base game grid, which includes the Plenty O’ Coins feature. You get twelve spins on a special second set of reels, which are peppered with gold, silver and bronze coins. Stop in a gold coin to receive a 5x your total stake payout, silver for a 2x payout and bronze for a return of 1x. The only bad thing about this bonus round is that it can’t be re-triggered.
