Undoubtedly a game drawing its inspiration from the fantasy realms of J.R.R. Tolkien, Fortune Hill is another enchanting slot from Playtech that gives players even more ways to win. A five-reel, 25-payline game, Fortune Hill benefits from a special bonus wheel that is spun before each game, with players able to get their hands on cash prizes, multipliers and unique wilds to improve their base game winnings. The slot also boasts a pick-and-click mini-game and a free spins feature to ensure a magical experience, whatever bet level you choose to play for.
The background in Fortune Hill definitely owes a creative debt to the Shire in J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings books, with a noticeably hobbit-esque creature periodically bounding out of a small hut to show off his banjo playing skills. The regular symbols on the reels include this aforementioned character smoking a pipe, a white-haired wizard, an orc and a fairy, with mushrooms and rainbows being used to trigger the two bonus features. The game’s audio includes a babbling brook and the tweeting of birds in the background, with a jolly piece of music playing whenever the reels are spun.
The most noticeable bonus feature in Fortune Hill comes in the form of a wooden water wheel that spins alongside the main reels during each turn. This water wheel can award a selection of great bonuses, with prize multipliers, cash awards and re-spins that feature either freezing wilds or expanding wild reels all available to enhance players’ base game winnings. The game also boasts a pick-and-click mini-game that is launched whenever mushroom symbols appear on reels one and five and a free spins feature that is triggered by rainbows landing on reels one, three and five. The first enables players to continually pick prizes from a mushroom patch until the word “collect” is revealed, while the second awards an initial eight free spins with the wooden wheel adding now capable of adding between two and eight games if players are particularly lucky.
For all its features, Fortune Hill plays just like any other Playtech slot in that players simply have to choose the number of paylines they wish to be active and the their bet per line amount. With the former options ranging from 1-25 and the latter being available from £0.01-£10.00, the game can be played from anywhere between £0.01 and £250.00 per spin. A turbo button located beneath the wooden wheel can also be used to speed up gameplay, while a stone with autoplay written on it launches a pop-up menu where players can queue up to 99 spins in a single click.
With its outstanding 3D graphics, colourful fantasy theme and potential to award incredible bonus prizes on each and every spin, Fortune Hill is a video slot adventure quite unlike any other. Whether or not you know your hobbits from your balrogs, you’ll love the presence of the bonus water wheel, as this can lead to substantial prizes being won even when you don’t trigger one of the slot’s the two main features.
