Fortune Rewind Slot Review 2022
Get ready to travel back and forth in time with a determined Dr Tempis as she continues her search for her beloved father in Play’n GO’s latest release, Fortune Rewind!
In 1970, when Dr Tempis was just a little girl, her father was sucked into the very machine he had spent so long creating and hurled into a never-ending time warp. Years later, an older and much wiser Dr Tempis decides to finish what her father started by rebuilding the time travel machine that took her dad, only problem is she can’t seem to control it.
With a click of a button, Dr Tempis could find herself back in the land of Dinosaurs or far into the future where rocket boots are all the rage. With 6 eras to explore, will Dr Tempis finally bring her father back to present time?
Play’n GO let’s us travel alongside Dr Tempis where the background and music change to fit the era we’ve landed ourselves in. During the base game, you will come across features that take on a Rewind and Fast Forward notion, upgrading symbols and Wilds which create opportunities for wins on any non-winning spin.
Time flies when you’re having fun, but will that be the case here? Let’s play on and find out!
Fortune Rewind Base Game and Features
Fortune Rewind is a 5 reel slot with 20 fixed paylines. Winning combinations are formed when 3 or more of the same symbol types land from left to right, starting from the left-most reel.
The minimum bet available here is £/€0.10 per spin and the maximum bet available is £/€100 per spin, with plenty of other options in between the two. Fortune Rewind has a theoretical RTP of 96.27% and a maximum win capacity of 8,500x.
In terms of symbols, the highest paying regular symbol in Fortune Rewind is the Gold Ring, followed by Rocket Boots, Cassette Player, Sheriff Badge, Anubis and the Dinosaur Skull. Low-paying symbols are standard Ace, King, Queen and Jack. There is also a Wild Power Cell symbol present which substitutes for all symbols except Scatters.
During any non-winning spin in the base game, Wild Power Cells have the ability to send you back in time, respinning the reels around them and adding more Wild Power Cells, until a winning combination is formed.
During any regular winning spin in the base game, you will be given the chance to travel forward in time, upgrading all winning symbols and respinning the surrounding reels.
Fortune Rewind Time Warp Free Spins
Landing 3, 4 or 5 Scatters across the reels triggers the Time Warp Free Spins round, awarding 15 Free Spins and a Multiplier of x15, x17 and x20 respectively.
During Free Spins, at the end of the right-most reel sits a Wanted Symbol indicator with a High-paying symbol and your awarded Multiplier from the intial trigger. All low-paying symbols are removed from play, leaving only high-paying, Wilds and Scatters on the reels.
As you move through different Eras, the Wanted Symbol indicator will choose another high-paying symbol that fits the particular era you’re now in. Winning combinations formed using the chosen symbol in the Wanted Symbol indicator will be multiplied by the Multiplier.
Landing 3 Scatters during Free Spins awards an additional +5 Free Spins, up to a maximum of 40.
Fortune Rewind: Our verdict
All of us at some point have talked about a world in where time travel exists and being able to see your beloved relative once more. Although this is merely a fantasy, the good news is we can live out our dreams of time travel through movies, books and games such as this.
Fortune Rewind doesn’t just stick to one era and has us travelling back and forth to some pretty historic scenes and some fairly new ones that haven’t even occured yet. Once you’ve travelled through all 6 Eras, its easy to become attached to a particular one and for us it has to be the 80’s nightlife scene.
Not only has Play’n GO managed to pull off the theme, but they’ve also done a fantastic job at capturing this in their features and Free Spins round. The Wild Rewind and Fast Forward features are simple yet alluring, delivering plenty of entertainment whilst you wait for the Time Warp Free Spins round to trigger.
Although the theme and base game features bring enough enjoyment on their own, the time warp Free Spins round is where it really starts to get interesting thanks to the x15, x17 and x20 Multiplier (depending on how many tiggering Scatters land). The only downside is that there is no Bonus Buy option available here, so if you really want to see the Free Spins round in action, you will have to grind for it.
All in all, Fortune Rewind is a very imaginative game from Play’n GO and we think it’ll be an enjoyable one for players everywhere, past present or future.
