The 1980s were known for the beginning of the video game revolution, and the golden age of video games began during this time period. Arcade games were a big part of this, and Arcade Fortunes is an online slot that's a throwback to this time. Arrow's Edge has done a good job with making the graphics and sound really fit the theme, but the graphics do come across as a bit clunky. This is the case with many Arrow's Edge titles, though the gameplay is solid overall, which is also typical of them.

Game Format

The basic format of this game is pretty normal with five reels and three rows. However, it uses a very atypical 18 paylines, for no apparent reason. This doesn't really fit in with the theme of the game or anything, so we're not really sure why they went with that particular option. You can choose your number of paylines 1-18, though we recommend you keep them all on to get the maximum payout rate. The coin sizes range from $0.01 to $1 apiece, so your betting range is $0.18 to $18. Low-stakes and medium-stakes players will be fine, but high-stakes slots fans may prefer to look elsewhere for larger available bet sizes.

Top-Paying Symbols

The top-paying symbols in this game are all based on what you'd expect to see in an arcade in the 1980s. The main character is Jason, and he's worth 2,000x for five of a kind. He's also the largest regular win in the game. Katie is the other character, and she'll give you wins worth 1,000x if you get five of her on an activated payline. It's interesting that both of these symbols give you a win for two of a kind or more, because they're the only symbols that do so.

Mid-Range and Low Symbols

The skateboard was an iconic part of 1980s arcade culture, and you'll get 200x for five of this method of transportation. You can pick up 200x for the portable tape player as well. Five of the fountain drink or game tokens will give you 150x each.

The low symbols in this game are stylized, pixelated versions of the A, K, Q, J and 10 symbols. They fit the theme extremely well. Five of the A symbol pays 80x for five of a kind, and five of the stylized K gets you a win worth 50x. The same 50x payout is good for five of the Q symbol. You can get 40x for five of the J or 10 symbols as well. There are a total of 11 regular paying symbols, and they are given a balanced set of wins that cover large, medium and small payouts. This helps to contribute to the reasonable volatility of the game as a whole.

Sticky Wilds and Bonus Features

Wilds in this game are sticky and held in place for multiple spins. While this can lead to some great multi-line wins and better chances for the top prizes, particularly if several of them show up at the same time, they don't show up as often as wilds in other games. Aside from that, there are arcade game scatter symbols, and three or more of them trigger a bonus feature.

You get to choose between two different bonus features when you get at least three of the scatters. The first is a Skee Ball round, which is a game that is a stable in any arcade, even up to present day. The other option is the "Galaxy" game, which is obviously Arcade Fortunes' play on the Galaga and Space Invader games. Each of these games give you chances to win what amount to instant win prizes since there's not enough of an element of skill in the games to matter all that much. It's cool that they kept the bonus features along the lines of the theme of the game, but they aren't exactly incredibly in-depth titles on their own.

Our Thoughts

Arrow's Edge isn't known for the most visually appealing online slots out there, but with the 1980s arcade game theme that they've used in Arcade Fortunes, we can excuse that to a great deal since the style of graphics matches up well with the theme overall. The bonus features are cool at first, though they quickly fall flat for a lack of depth and for being glorified instant win features. The sticky wilds are a plus, and they're a feature that we don't see all that often, but they don't really compensate enough for the underwhelming bonus feature. Overall, this is a game that players might get some quality time out of, but it's unlikely that you'll get a lot of replay value out of it since it's fairly shallow as a whole, which is unfortunately typical for this software developer.
