Fortune Pike Gold: Our Verdict

Foxium is a name that stands out to us as a provider with much to offer. After all, Cossacks The Wild Hunt is their game, and forever onward we’ve been looking closely for something just as appealing.

Is Fortune Pike that game? Not quite, but it is rather impressive when it gets going. You have to forgive it for its generic mining theme, and you definitely shouldn’t throw it into a pile with the million other mining slots out there before giving it a go. Features in Fortune Pike seem to trigger fairly frequently, which will keep players quite invested in Fortune Pike and all that it has to offer.

Results varied rather drastically, as they do in every other slot, but we were quite intrigued when Fortune Pike was firing on all cylinders. Boost, Dynamite Symbols, Dynamite Rush and Free Spins features like Lucky Dinky Random Wilds and Lucky Dinky Cart Ride showed that Fortune Pike Gold is rather amply fitted with features, and the winning potential furthers its appeal even more with up to 10,000x as a maximum win.

Overall, Fortune Pike Gold didn’t stand out as the most memorable of all Foxium slots, but it certainly isn’t a forgetful mining slot like many others are.
