We think that players in general tend to be fans of titles that have a lot of different bonus features, and the Fortune Charm slot by Red Tiger Gaming matches that particular description in the gameplay side of things. Along with that, you'll get an aesthetically pleasing Asian motif with dragons, lions, golden symbols and more. It looks solid and it plays really well with a low volatility and an action-packed high hit-rate.

Layout and Format

The layout of a game can dictate the entire feel of its gameplay, and that's why this title uses 243 ways to win to give players a high hit-rate with lots of ways to get paid on each spin. Five reels and three rows create the typical 15-symbol grid here as well, and you can choose bet sizes that start off at the $0.20 level. While the maximum wager size will actually depending on where you're playing, the game itself is designed to allow for bets of as much as $500. Most sites will only allow bets up to $100 or $200 per spin, however.

The Charm Box Symbol

The most important symbol in this title is the charm box, and you can sort of tell that from the name of the game. It does a few different things that influence gameplay quite a bit with different features, and those features are the centerpieces of the slot as a whole.

The first thing it does is offer randomly chosen symbols that match up. All of the charm boxes that appear on any given spin will randomly choose a symbol, and all of them will turn into that symbol. This gives better chances of wins because it means there are more symbols, on average, that match up on the reels. This is a smart way to add value that's a bit different than what you typically see, and there's a lot more value as a result of this symbol than you might think.

Wild Multiplier Symbols

One of the ways that the charm box helps players to get more value than they would otherwise receive is with wild multipliers. If you get a wild symbol on your charm boxes when they pick out their random symbol, then that's obviously good since you can get multiple wilds on the reels at the same time. However, they also become wild multipliers in this instance with 5x the usual payouts. If any winning combination uses a minimum of one of these wild multiplier, then its payout is multiplied by five. That's like winning the same prize five different times, which is obviously something to get excited about for any player.

Free Spins Bonus Feature

Something else that's pretty cool is that you can earn free spins with this charm symbol as well. The way it works is that getting at least three of them on the reels at the same time will pay out normally, and no matter what symbols they turn into for their random symbol feature, you'll be given a set of free spins afterwards. The number of free spins is actually chosen at random no matter how many charm boxes show up on the grid, but it's a pretty good feature regardless because you're getting even more opportunities to line up winning combinations without having to pay for them.

Other Payouts and Wins

Every win in this game is based on a multiple of how much you're wagering on that spin, so don't let the somewhat low pure numbers fool you. These wins are in line with what you'll find from most games with low or medium levels of volatility.

The wild firebird symbol doesn't get its own payouts, but it does appear on all reels. The green lion with a golden ball and choker pays out 10x for five of a kind. You can win a 7.5x prize for five of the koi trying to eat some gold coins. the golden and red shield symbol with a red tassel gets players 6x, and the golden heart charm with a red interior will get you 5x.

Rounding up the lower end of the pay table is a set of five card rank symbols. You'll get 3.6x or 2.5x for five of the purple A or red K. The green Q and blue J earn players 2 or 1.8x, respectively, for five of a kind. Finally, you can get a 1.5x payout for five of the orange 10 symbol.

Our Thoughts

Fortune Charm is a fun game with a good mix of features, and it looks good as well. Red Tiger Gaming has done something interesting by centering all of the features around the random charm box symbols, and we like how that works because it provides one central point for most of the action of the game that you can count on.
