Fortune Year Slot Review

Provided by NetEnt, Fortune Year Slot is expected to include 3x3 reels but only one active payline available for playing. As it seems, more and more developers are including three-reel slots and their number is expected to grow. Fortune Year will have high volatility and a decent Return to Player of 96,19%. Moreover, winnings up to 2000x the stake will be possible. One of the main features implemented in this game are the Nudges as well as the multiplier wilds.


Fortune Year is a regular Asian-themed slot game that is similar to the already released Asian-themed slots. As we already mentioned, Fortune Year is a clone to Grand Spinn so it will include Grand Spinn’s mechanics while adding its own signature on top of it. Being the typical slot game for the genre, Fortune Year includes symbols from Paper Lanterns (jackpots), to melons, oranges, plums, cherries, red envelopes, triple 8s, and Bar logos.

How To Play Fortune Year Slot

As previously stated, Fortune Year has a single payline, but offers different ways of bets that players can try by navigating the layout in the game. You can place your bet in the bottom right corner of the game, starting with just £0.02 with two coins being required for the smallest wager. Of course, you can place a higher bet and coin value, up to £200 per spin. This allows numerous available bets for players to try according to their budget. For example, if you want to start with a bet of £10, you have to select a coin value of £5 and set it to the first level. The game has a starting bet of two coin values per the single payline, so that amount will lead to the bet of £10.

How To Win Fortune Year Slot

Of course, winning in a slot game means landing three identical symbols in a line. However, Fortune Year offers additional features that can bring you huge winnings with more than three identical symbols. If you’re interested to see details about symbols’ wins, you can click at the bottom located on the left corner on the screen and read them. This button with show you all features, including the Nudge Spin.

Just like the Grand Spinn slot, Fortune Year features the Nudge and it’s not the typical one for the 3-reel slots. With each winning round, you will receive the Nudge if the symbol from the top of the first reel is the same as the one that triggered the win. Then, the Nudge will take the reel down so the top matching symbol comes to the active line. The Nudge will repeat for as long as there are matching symbols. It will be repeated when Arrows appear on a winning symbol as well.

Moreover, Fortune Year has a wild symbol included. Two matching symbols and a wild symbol will bring you a win. Also, two wilds and a symbol will do the same. What’s more, there is another type of the Wild symbol that comes with a x2 multiplier.

Also, an alternative jackpot may come from the slot’s wins, up to payouts of 2,000x the stake per spin. Apart from the Mega Jackpot, Fortune Year slot includes other fixed jackpots known as Midi and Mini jackpots. They are fixed amounts, with the Mini jackpot at 40 and the Midi at 200x.
