Here is a review of the Big Scary Fortune

Big Fortune slots can be found at Inspired Gaming, a company that has a vast collection of these games, which are basically similar games in which the only element that can be varied is the skin. There are a couple of new additions to the series, including Big Scary Fortune, which follows a pretty much the same pattern as its predecessors. Hence, by combining a familiar gaming experience with a fancy horror theme that celebrates Halloween, it offers the classic gaming experience with a new twist.

Upon loading the game, players are taken to a dark forest with a sinister atmosphere, where five semi-transparent reels are arranged on five lines with a maximum of 10 paylines. An eerie moon and a magical witch house form the backdrop behind the spooky camera, creating an eerie and spooky atmosphere behind the camera. It is also important to mention that the soundtrack is also on spot, adding a final touch to the general ambiance of the piece. In the end, the design team did get the job done well with Big Scary Fortune slot machine, as the game offers a perfect Halloween aesthetic on the outside and is absolutely beautiful on the inside.

Taking a closer look at the inside of the building, however, we can see that nothing is as rosy as it seems. There isn't a lot to say about the RTP of Big Scary Fortune, as it has a pretty meager value of 94.8%, which is way lower than the average level across the industry. The game's medium volatility rating makes it very likely that a player will get a winning combination quite often, which is pretty good news. There is a maximum win of 500,000 credits that is possible in a single spin, which means that wins of up to 5,000x the bet are possible on a single spin. At the same time, players have to wager at least €0.1 before they can play, and the highest betting option goes up to €100, which should be suitable for the majority of players.

In terms of the paytable, there are nine regular symbols, including classic A-9 royals on the lower side and witch hats, cats, eyes, and ghosts on the top side, which make up the premium symbols. Three or more adjacent symbols beginning from the leftmost reel will create a winning combination, except for witch hats, which only need two adjacent symbols to create a winning combination. Five-of-a-kind low symbol wins are worth 10x your bet, while premium wins are worth 50x to 200x your wager. In the free games, there are pumpkin symbols that are cash symbols, and they award additional wins during the free games. In the base game, however, they act as regular symbols and are capable of paying up to 20x the bet when winning a line bet.


The features of the Big Scary Fortune slot machine are as follows:

When three or more bonus cauldron symbols appear simultaneously on the reels, the Big Scary Fortune Bonus game will be triggered as soon as three or more appear simultaneously on the reels. As a prelude to the bonus round, players are taken to a mini-game involving Match 3 symbols so they can decide how much the Big Pumpkin is worth during the bonus round. Based on how many bonus symbols are triggered, players can either win one of the following prizes based on the number of triggering symbols:

The Scatter symbols in this game are worth 20x, 30x, 50x, and 100x the stake.

The scatter symbols are in the form of 30 times, 50 times, and 100 times the stake, respectively

There are 5 scatter symbols in this game, with 50x, and 100x stakes associated with them

Using a grid of 6, 9, or 12 identical tiles, players will be presented with a grid of 6, 9, or 12 tiles which they will have to pick one by one to reveal the Big Pumpkin values on the screen. With the matching of three of these symbols, you will begin a round of free spins with the appropriate value on the Big Pumpkin symbol once you have found three matching ones.

As a result of the free spins, there will be a Wild scarecrow symbol available, which will appear on all four reels and will be able to substitute for any of the regular symbols in winning combinations in order to help you achieve payouts. Additionally, whenever a Wild symbol lands in view along with a pumpkin cash symbol, it will collect all the displayed values when it lands in view. In case there are multiple scarecrow symbols on the reels at the same time, the values are collected for each scarecrow symbol that appears.

Whenever a Big Pumpkin symbol lands on the reels, it is locked in place until a scarecrow symbol appears in view to take its place. As soon as it has been collected, the free spins feature will come to an end. As a final step, if all 15 positions on the reels have been filled up with the Big Pumpkin symbols, all the values displayed on the reels will be collected and the bonus will be completed.


Review Summary

Like any other Big Fortune game in Inspired Gaming's portfolio, the Halloween release holds to the same template, so there's nothing new for the players to look forward to when playing it. Nevertheless, the gameplay is a lot of fun and more importantly it can deliver massive rewards should the afterburners kick in, while wonderful artwork and sounds keep you in the right mood throughout the session. At the end of the day, Big Scary Fortune proves to be a decent game, even though it is lacking in originality in a big way.
