Beneath the blue lies a fascinating world, with sunken ships, giant octopuses and other marine life that’ll have you fully immersed in the world under the sea in Quickspin’s latest Blue Fortune Slot.
Join Roger, Scarlet, Peg leg and Salty in an exciting underwater safari where you’ll explore a sunken ship, but beware of the Giant Octupus.
Blue Fortune is based off of the design of another Quickspin title, Northern Sky. Blue Fortune may be a world away from Scandinavia, but there are traits about Blue Fortune that are very reminiscent of this older title.
Let’s get the scuba gear ready and delve deep to see what surprises await us in the deep blue.
The visual design for Blue Fortune is flawless.
The cartoon style art work on the characters and the depiction of a sunken ship wrapped within the arms of the Kraken really brings to life the design, and the quiet yet suspenseful music tells the story of a daring, yet dangerous expedition.
A quick comparison of Blue Fortune Slot and Northern Sky just shows how much Quickspin have improved at creating something with top quality artwork.
The Betting options in Blue Fortune Slot are as expansive as any other Quickspin Game, with options as low as £/€0.10 per spin and as high as £/€100 per spin.
There are tonnes of different options in between the two, and the incremental increases in stake aren’t too steep meaning that there should be an ideal option for all looking to traverse the ocean floor.
Symbols in Blue Fortune Slot are separated by High Paying and Low Paying Symbols.
The high Paying Symbols are Roger, Scarlet, Peg Leg and Salty, and the Low Paying symbols are the pink, green and purple skulls.
There’s no Wild Symbol, but to be honest it doesn’t need one due to the low number of symbols.
Blue Fortune is a 5 reel slot with 9 fixed pay lines.
To form a win, you’ll need at least 3 matching symbols from left to right, starting from the left most reel.
Lines on their own don’t exactly pay a considerable amount, but thanks to the Respin feature you’ll be able to build upon those wins.
Any Winning combination within Blue Fortune triggers the Respin Feature.
Winning symbols are locked in to place, and the remaining reels respin.
Any new symbols that match those of the type locked will be held in place as long as they add to or complete the winning line. If another symbol is added, then the new composition of symbols will pay, and the reels will spin again.
This continues until there are no more winning combinations.
This is a great feature and it gets really exciting as you start completing lines of the same symbol.
To trigger the Free Spins, you’ll need to collect 3 Scatter Symbols.
You need not collect these on one spin.
If Scatters land upon triggering or during the Respin feature, then these will collect until you have the 3 needed to trigger the bonus, or until the respin feature concludes.
10 Free Spins are awarded in the round, and the fundamental difference between this and the Base Game is that only high paying symbols may land, making it much easier to connect those bigger wins.

Quickspin themselves have said that Blue Fortune is perfect for those who consider themselves more casual players, and we think they’re right.
Blue Fortune is pretty easy to understand, and even the Free Spins round itself doesn’t differ too much from The Base Game. This kind of simplicity makes it perfect for those looking for a more linear experience.
One thing that you have to commend when talking about Blue Fortune is the fantastic artwork. The aesthetic really draws you in, and both casual and hardcore players alike will appreciate this.
The frequency in which you’ll see the respins feature will have you pleasantly surprised. It may not always deliver on massive wins, but it’s nice to see it often. This mode gets even more exciting in the bonus when only high paying symbols are present, and those lucky enough to find the jewell in the ocean may find themselves bagging the maximum win of 3,111x
The maximum win may not be huge, but the RTP for Blue Fortune is pretty solid at 95.57%, which puts it well above the figure considered decent by players.
Overall, some will love Blue Fortune and the simplicity it offers, and some may find it very boring. If you’re searching for massive wins and extreme volatility then you won’t find it here. But if you’re looking for something a little more casual with easy to understand features, then Blue Fortune Slot might be a great choice, especially if you loved Northern Sky.
