Plenty O Fortune Slot
Imitation, it is said, is the sincerest form of flattery so we suspect Barcrest must be highly flattered by Playtech’s Plenty O’ Fortune online slot since it bears an uncanny resemblance to Barcrest’s legendary Rainbow Riches!
The appetite for whimsical Irish fantasy slot games amongst online players is clearly insatiable as Plenty O’ Fortune is so visually similar to Rainbow Riches that we did a double-take when we witnessed its prancing ginger leprechaun bidding us welcome to his lucky wishing well when this slot launched!
Plenty O’ Fortune is not going to win any prizes for ‘most original themed slot’ any time soon, but what can the lucky leprechaun on these five reels offer the keen gaming gold prospector? Well, your pursuit of that pot of gold starts with the five-reels and twenty paylines Plenty O’ Fortune has for its basegame.
It’s all pretty standard video slot stuff, with Wilds and Scatters in play to add a little extra magic to proceedings, so ultimately a tried and tested recipe that should please many slot players from the get go.
The paytable may not seem as generous as some big game themed slots (five Wilds on a payline delivers the biggest payline payday of 500x the linebet) but wins seem to come more often as a result, so if you prefer the experience of more frequent wins traded off against generally lower pays this has Plenty O’ Potential.
The best online slots are often defined by the additional bonus features they can add to their basegames, so Plenty O’ Fortune makes its bid for a place at the top table with three offerings.
First is a fistful of free spins when the Leprechauns’ own grinning face pops into view three times as a Bonus Scatter symbol, with a second Wishing Well Bonus Scatter symbol adding the prospect of those symbols overflowing with bonus coins while the Leprechaun dances a mad jig across the screen.
Both features add nice little interludes to the basegame action, however the literal pot of gold at the end of Plenty O’ Fortune’s rainbow is the Wishing Well Bonus game, triggered when three of more of that game’s bonus symbol spin into view.
Transported to a second screen, the player must travel a winding path lined with pots of gold to collect as much loot as they can.
Lucky picks from each level of six pots reveals a cash prize and advances you towards the pot at the end of the rainbow.
This mission can end prematurely should the pot conceal a “Collect” command, but you keep the bounty harvested up to that point before returning to the Plenty O’ Fortune’s basegame once more.
Plenty O’ Fortune slot leaves us in a bit of a quandary. It’s a perfectly decent online slot with all the ingredients to deliver plenty o’ fun and some tidy little paydays if the eyes of the wee Irish fella in the Emerald outfit are smilin’ on you.
However its lack of originality makes it difficult to recommend over other competing online slots. In truth, if you already love playing Rainbow Riches, Plenty O’ Fortune has little new to offer, but if you fancy a little Leprechaun-laced gaming whilst exploring a Playtech-powered casino then perhaps that’s reason enough to put Plenty O’ Fortune through its paces.
