Bubbly Modifier

During any paid spin in the base game, the Bubbly Modifier can randomly trigger.

Once active, the reels will fill with bubbles, with the possibility of triggering either the Pearl Respins or Free Spins round.

Pearl Respins

Landing 3 or more Pearl symbols on reels 2, 3 or 4 triggers the Pearl Respins round, awarding 1 Respin.

On the left side of the reel set sits a list of 7 Cash Prizes. Each time a new Pearl symbol lands in view during this feature, the corresponding Cash Prize is awarded, up to a maximum of x100 your bet.

During the Respin, if any new Pearl symbols land, an additional Respin is awarded. This will continue until no new Pearl symbols land in view or all 9 positions have been filled.

Once the Repsins end, the total number of Pearls on the reels will award its corresponding Cash Prize from the Pearl paytable.

Pearl symbols are only able to land on reels 2, 3 and 4 during this time, and reels 1 and 5 will be inactive.

9 Pearls of Fortune: Our Verdict

Underwater-themed slots are more common than we realise, and with so many brilliant ones out there it’s a tough market to beat.

Visually, 9 Pearls of Fortune looks great with excellent graphics and a beautiful design, but did iSoftBet do it justice in the gameplay department?

The Bubbly Modifier and the Pearl Respins feature has iSoftBet written all over it, and if you’re a hardcore iSoftBet fan then you’ll enjoy 9 Pearls of Fortune and appreciate it for its tranquility. Is it an iSoftBet smash hit? Not really, we can think of a fair few games that outperform 9 Pearls of Fortune in both appeal and potential, but you still can’t go far wrong by giving it a good go.

Overall, 9 Pearls of Fortune probably won’t make it into any hall of fame, but it’ll give you a quick iSoftBet fix if you need one.
