FORTUNATE 5

How to Play

5-Reel 15-line Slots 

The objective of Fortunate 5™ is to obtain winning symbol combinations by spinning the reels.

To play the game:

  • Line bets are chosen by clicking + and - below Line Bet to increase or decrease the amount.
  • The Fortunate 5™ game is always played with 15 active paylines. The number of active paylines is fixed and cannot be changed by the player.
  • Total bet per game round = line bet X active paylines.
  • Clicking Spin spins the reels with the current selection of lines and line bets. During the reel spin the Spin button changes into Stop. Clicking Stop ends the spin animation and immediately displays the spin result.
  • Reels can also be spun using the Auto Play function. Mouse over the Auto Play button to display the list of options. Select the number of spins to be played automatically or choose Until Feature to spin until the Wild Waters Free Games round is triggered. Clicking on an option starts the Auto Play function. The Auto Play button changes into Stop during the Auto Play mode. The Auto Play mode ends when the reels have been spun the number of times determined by the player, or when the Wild Waters Free Games round is triggered if you chose Until Feature, or when you click Stop.
  • Clicking the Turbo Mode button switches on or off the Turbo Mode thus turning on or off some of the win animations and sounds, and making the reels spin faster or slower.
  • Wins are calculated according to the paytable. Line win = line bet X corresponding multiplier according to the paytable. Scatter win = total bet X corresponding multiplier according to the paytable. The paytable can be accessed via the Info page.
  • On a given payline, only the highest payline winning combination pays while simultaneous winnings on different paylines are accumulated.
  • In the case of a winning spin, the Win field displays the accumulating winnings. The Win ticker can be stopped by clicking anywhere on the screen to display the total win amount immediately.
  • Payline wins and the total win are also displayed on the strip located at the bottom of the reels or the game window.

Info page:

  • Clicking Info opens the reference screen describing different game components. Clicking the arrow buttons at the lower right-hand corner of the screen enables navigating between the different info screens.
    • The Paytable screen shows all winning combinations. When opened after a winning spin, the winning symbol combinations (number of symbols and bet multiplier) are highlighted and blink.
    • The Wild Waters Free Games screen explains how the Free Games are triggered and played out.
    • The 2nd Chance Re-Spin screen describes how the feature is triggered and explains its rules.
    • The Paylines screen illustrates all possible payline combinations and explains the payout rules in the game.
    • The Progressive Jackpots screen display how each of the jackpots is awarded. Click on any of the five pirate figures to get more information about their characters.
  • Clicking Back exits the Info screen and returns to the game.

Paylines:

  • Active paylines are represented by lines that appear over the reels as illustrated in the Paylines screen of the Info page.
  • All 15 active paylines can register wins.
  • There is a difference between the line bet and the total bet. The line bet shows how much is being bet on a single payline. The total bet shows how much is being bet in total on the game round. Payouts shown in the paytable are multiplied by the line bet.

The Scatter symbol is an exception to these rules. More information about the Scatter symbol can be found below.

About payouts:

  • Payouts are listed on the Paytable screen. To find the possible win amount, the line bet must be multiplied by the payout.
  • If two payline winning combinations occur on the same line, the higher of them is paid out. If more than one active payline has a winning combination, the winnings are added up.
  • Winning combinations must start from the left most reel, and the symbols have to be consecutive.

The Scatter symbol is an exception to these rules. More information about the Scatter symbol can be found below.

Wild Symbol

The Wild symbol appears on reels #2, #3 and #4 only and substitutes for any symbol, other than bonus, to make the best possible winning combination. It appears during the main game and the Free Games round.

More information about the Wild Waters Free Games can be found here.

Scatter Symbol

The Scatter symbols do not have to occur on any particular payline. If there are 2 in any position on the reels, the payout earned is multiplied by the total bet and added to payline winnings.

Whenever 3 or more simultaneously appear anywhere on the main game reels, the Wild Waters Free Games are triggered, as explained here.

Note:

  • 3 or more Scatter symbols have no payout of their own.
  • Scatter symbols appear during the main game only.

2nd Chance Re-Spin

There are 5 special symbols in the game

When any 4 identical symbols appear along an active payline in a consecutive order starting from reel #1, you will be awarded the 2nd Chance Re-Spin: when the spin awarding the 4OAK combination ends, reel #5 will spin for free, while the identical pirate symbols remain “frozen” in their positions.

Note:

  • Any possible new winning combinations resulting from the 2nd Chance Re-Spin, other than the ones that qualify for the jackpots, do not pay.
  • The 2nd Chance Re-Spin is available during the main game only.
  • It is possible to win more than one 4OAK special symbol combination during one and the same spin. In such cases you will be awarded as many 2nd Chance Re-Spin as the number of the 4OAK special symbol combinations is. For example, if you win 4x and 4x during the same spin, you will be awarded two 2nd Chance Re-Spin.

Wild Waters Free Games

Whenever 3 or more simultaneously appear anywhere during the main game, an unlimited number of Wild Waters Free Games with a Wild Storm Super Spin is triggered.

To start the Wild Waters Free Games round, click on Click to Start. Click Continue on the screen that appears next.

During the Wild Waters Free Games you collect every that appears in the reel-spin results. The progressive number of the symbols is displayed on the left-hand side meter that appears once the Free Games have started. When 5 Wild symbols are collected, the Wild Storm Super Spin is automatically triggered. During this last free spin, the collected Wild symbols are randomly distributed on the reels where they remain “frozen” until the Wild Storm Super Spin ends. Once the feature has been played out, the Wild Waters Free Games round ends.

Note:

  • The Wild Waters Free Games cannot be retriggered.

 

  •  may appear on all reels during the Free Games and the Wild Storm Super Spin.

During the Free Games, the reels are spun automatically using the same number of lines and bets per line as on the spin that won the Free Games round. After each spin, the win is displayed in the Win field. The Free Games Winfield shows the accumulated winnings from the current Free Games.

Clicking Continue will return you to the main game. When returning to the main game, clicking anywhere on the screen stops the win ticker and displays the full prize.

If the Free Games have been triggered during the Auto Play mode, the Free Games round begins after the player clicks on Click to Start. When all Free Games have been played and the player clicks Continue on the screen summarizing the Free Games win, the Auto Play mode resumes. When returning to the main game, clicking anywhere on the screen stops the win ticker and displays the full prize.

Progressive Jackpots

There are 5 Progressive Jackpots that are triggered by a 5-of-a-kind combination of any of the special symbols in the game located on an active payline. The amount of money for each jackpot is displayed on the right-hand side of the main game screen against each of the triggering symbols.

Note:

  • The progressive jackpots can be triggered during the main game, the Wild Waters Free Games, the Wild Storm Super Spin and the 2nd Chance Re-Spin.
  • One and the same spin can award more than one jackpot and can be triggered by the same symbol, or by any of the other ones.

Seed (how much money each Progressive Jackpot starts with):

There is a static seed for each of the Progressive Jackpots depending on the coins the game is played with.

Average contribution rate (what average percentage of each total bet goes into the Progressive Jackpots):

15.00%

Win condition (the result you have to get to win a Progressive Jackpot):

Any 5OAK winning combination of the special symbols

Win requirements (what you need to do to be eligible for the Progressive Jackpot):

Note:

  • In case a player wins the same Progressive Jackpot twice during the same spin, they will be awarded the seed and the progressive part, as well as the seed together with any progressive amount possibly accumulated in the meantime.
  • In case 2 players win the same Progressive Jackpot at the same time, the 1st player will be awarded the seed and the progressive part, and the 2nd one will win the seed together with any progressive amount possibly accumulated for the time between the winning of the Progressive Jackpot by the 1st and the 2nd player.
  • Imperfections in the Internet connectivity may cause you to experience delays in Jackpot messages or updates, but they do not affect actual Jackpot wins.
