Fortunate Buddha Slots
Today, RealTime Gaming - RTG - takes us to the beautiful Far East with their Fortunate Buddha slot. One of the first things to jump out at players about this slot is its gorgeous design. The colors are so vibrant and work so well together that it's really a pleasure to look at. We have beautiful trees, ponds and flowers in the background that work well with the bright and colorful play symbols. RTG clearly took their time with Fortunate Buddha's design and it shows. So we know it's a great looking slot, but will players come away with fortunes of their own when playing Fortunate Buddha? Let's take a look!
Bets and Paylines
Fortunate Buddha is a 5 reel slot with 50 paylines. The bet sizes are on the low side, ranging from $1.00 to $5.00, so if you're a high roller this probably isn't the slot for you.
Fortunate Buddha has a beautiful collection of premium and non-premium symbols…
The GOLD BUDDHA is top symbol. 5 of them and players will be sharing in the fortunes of Buddha himself!
The GOLD FROG is second symbol.
Followed by the TURTLE.
And the final premium symbol is the LOTUS FLOWER.
The non-premium symbols are the standard TEN, JACK, QUEEN, KING and ACE playing cards.
The WILD symbol is the WILD. It substitutes for all symbols EXCEPT the scatter and golden orb. Wild symbols only appear in reels 2, 3 and 4.
The COIN PURSE is the scatter. 3 of those trigger the free spins feature.
The GOLD ORB is another scatter. 6 or more of these trigger the hold and spin feature.
Special and Bonus Features
Fortunate Buddha has two special features that players will want to get familiar with…
- Free Spins
This feature is triggered when players spin into 3 or more COIN PURSE scatter symbols. Players will be awarded 6 free spins. The Fortune Link feature can be triggered during free spins. If players spin into 3 or more COIN PURSE scatter symbols they are awarded 3 more free spins.
- Fortune Link Hold and Spin
A lot of slots are incorporating hold and spin bonus features and the Fortune Link is Fortunate Buddha's version. If players spin into 6 or more GOLD ORBS they will trigger the Fortune Link feature. All of the Gold Orbs will stay in place - each with different values - and the players will start with 3 re-spins. If any Gold Orbs show up in an empty spot the re-spins go back to 3. The Fortune Link feature ends when there are no more re-spins left - OR a player fills all 16 spots. If that happens they will win the Super Grand Jackpot!
To Play Or Not To Play?
That is the question. And the answer is… yes - depending on your bankroll. Fortunate Buddha has some low bet sizes so this is not a game to play if you're a high roller. However, if you're starting out with a smaller bankroll and looking to extend a session, this is the slot for you. Plus, the Fortune Link feature has the potential to payout huge. So, if you're looking for a visually stunning slot and don't want to break your balance playing, Fortunate Buddha might be the slot for you!
