Chest Of Fortunes
Spinomenal's Chest of Fortunes video slot is based on an Asian theme, and as a part of this sub-genre of online slots, it has a lot of the typical things you would see. There are decorative chests, as per the title of the game itself, gold ingots, fireworks, pandas, monkeys and Asian individuals on the reels themselves. The graphics are stylized along these lines as well, and the visual elements of the game are definitely all on the same page. This game also has a solid soundtrack that also fits the theme, so their overall presentation is good all around.
The format for this game has five reels with three rows, and there are 25 paylines. This is plenty of ways to get paid on each spin, and as you'll see with how the wild features work, it allows you more value than if there were fewer ways to win. Betting is set up around coins that go from $0.01 at the small end to $10 piece at the upper end. You can bet one coin on each payline only, and the paylines are always set at 25, so your bets start at the $0.25 level. You can wager as much as $250 on each spin too, so everyone will find a bet size that works for them.
Free Spins Bonus Round
Triggering the free spins is based on getting three or more of the scattered firecrackers symbols anywhere on the game board. You'll get an instant win along with triggering this feature as well. The wins are 2x, 5x and 10x for three, four or five of this symbol, respectively. You'll get five free spins for three of a kind, 10 free spins for four of a kind and 15 free spins for five of a kind in this symbol as well. To add just a little more value to the game, the wild symbols will expand on the middle reel during the free spins.
Chest Bonus Feature
A much less-involved bonus feature can be had if you get three or more of the chests anywhere on the reels. This will give you a random instant win. There's not anything you can really do to influence the result, but the payouts can be pretty solid.
Wild Symbols With Multipliers
The main feature that influences the normal gameplay the most is based around the wild symbols. They will give you a chance to hit winning combinations that you wouldn't have received otherwise. However, in this game, they also have 2x multipliers attached to them. Any winning combination that includes a wild is muliplied by a factor of two. These multipliers can stack, so two wilds in a winning combination will give you a total 4x multiplier. Some of the best wins in the game come from getting three of the wilds in a single winning combination because that multiplies your total win by an incredible 8x.
There's also a random wild feature that will trigger on some spins. Any non-free spin and non-chest symbol can randomly turn into a wild at the conclusion of a spin.
Big Wins and Payouts
The top symbol is the panda, and he's dressed up in a decorative hat and robe. Five of a kind of this cute little guy will pay out to the tune of 400x. With three wilds, that can be as high as 3,200x. Five of the dressed-up monkey will get you a win of 200x, and five of the Buddah figure pays 100x. You can also gets wins of 75x for five of the woman or the man symbols in this game.
The lower payouts are handled by card rank symbols. The A and K each pay 50x for five, and five of the Q or J on a payline gets you 25x. These symbols are all styled in an Asian-themed font, and they all use a red color scheme with gold trim that fits the color scheme of the slot as a whole.
In the Asian slot sub-genre, Chest of Fortunes definitely stands out in certain ways, particularly because of the gameplay driven by the wild multipliers that stack that Spinomenal included. The other bonus features help the situation as well. The pay table is balanced enough to have a reasonable volatility, but you can still win some pretty big prizes with the wilds, so it's easy to understand how this game appeals to players who like different styles of play.
