The Amazons are generally known for being a set of very large, very beautiful and very deadly warrior women, and the Fortunes of the Amazons slot by Side City Studios is based completely around this set of fighting females. You'll see lots of green fields and mountains in the background behind transparent reels in this game, and you'll see their weapons and other items beside of the game as you shoot for big wins and chances at the bonus features.
Format and Layout
The layout of this slot is geared towards major action with five reels, three rows and 50 total paylines. You'll have the option to bet from one to five coins on each of those paylines, so your total betting range in terms of number of coins goes from 50 to 250. You cannot change the number of paylines you have available, and the minimum coin size is $0.02, so you're going to be playing for at least $1 per spin in this game. The maximum coin size is $0.25, and that leads to a maximum available wager of $62.50.
We feel the need to point out that $1 is pretty high as far as minimum bet sizes are concerned, and we feel that a big weakness of this slot is the fact that it doesn't allow for $0.01 coin sizes. That would have drastically increased the number of players who are comfortable with playing this game in terms of bankroll management.
Wild Symbols and Amazons' Fire Feature
The symbol that you want to see the most of in this game is the wild symbol. It's the symbol with the word "wild" on fire. This symbol does not get its own payouts, but it does appear on all five reels, which is a little unusual. With that having been said, it's responsible for a lot of value on the regular pay table.
Part of the reason for this is the Amazons' Fire feature. On random spins, you can get extra wild symbols added to random places on the reels. You can earn up to four of them at a time with this feature, and these spins become worth a lot more than normal spins. A big part of this is the fact that this game has 50 paylines, so the wilds will help a lot of those to give you extra payouts you wouldn't have otherwise picked up.
Free Spins Cavalry Archer Symbols and Feature
There's a cavalry archer symbol that's on a blue background with the moon behind it. This is the free spins symbol, and it appears on the second, third and fourth reels only. On each spin of the wild feature, one extra wild is added at random, and every single wild that appears is locked in and made sticky for the remainder of the bonus round. You'll get five free spins during this feature, and the other features cannot be triggered during this feature.
To facilitate this, a different set of reels are used. There are no wild symbols or bonus symbols on the reels during this feature, and it cannot be re-triggered.
Luna Bonus Wheel Feature
There's a bright and vibrant bonus wheel feature that you'll find on the first, third and fifth reels only. If you pick up all three of them at once, you'll get a turn on the bonus wheel feature. This gives you an instant win payout after it spins that's based primarily around a multiple of your total bet size.
Important Payouts and Prizes
The Fortunes of the Amazons logo symbol is the top symbol in this game with a 500x payout for five of a kind. There's not much of a drop there to the three Amazon warriors themselves with pays of 250x for five of the red one, 200x for five of the purple and 175x for five of the green.
There are three corresponding jewel symbols as well that are red, purple and green, and they pay 150x, 125x and 100x, respectively, for five of a kind of each. Finally you have the quiver of arrows for a 75x payout for five of a kind, and the armor gives 50x for five as well.
The Fortunes of the Amazons slot has decent graphics and decent gameplay. It doesn't stand out in any particular way, but it does have several features that provide a fairly exciting experience. It's hard to argue with that, especially since the format itself is designed for players to see a lot of action. Because of this, it's found a pretty decent audience.
The downfall of this game is that it's terribly generic. There's nothing that stands out about it that you can't find in dozens, if not hundreds, of other video slots, many of which do it better. The high-action and low-volatility style of gameplay is popular among players, but it's hard to compete just based on that alone.
