88 Fortunes Online Slot Review

88 Fortunes Online Slot Review

In this online slot review, we’ll take a look at the Chinese-themed title 88 Fortunes, which brings together all the graphics, symbols and features you’d expect from a game from this genre.

There are so many kinds of online slots to play at The Phone Casino, but this is one of the most popular ones. Read on to find out why!


Game overview

As with many similar online slots in the UK, 88 Fortunes has a palette of red and gold, which are powerful colours with deep symbolic meaning in China, as they represent good fortune and happiness.

The title of the game also highlights the importance of numbers in Chinese culture, as 8 is considered to be very lucky indeed (and is a common feature across many other Chinese-themed slot games). This is because, in Chinese, the number 8 (pronounced ba) sounds similar to a word that means “well off” or “to get rich in a short space of time” (pronounced fa). In fact, you’ll find that this 5-reel slot from SG Gaming actually offers an amazing 243 ways to win, but more of that later.

Apart from a double helping of lucky numbers in this game’s name, and the promising colours in the background, you can also find other symbols of prosperity on the reels, such as a feng shui coin, golden ingots, a tortoise, a sampan (a traditional flat-bottomed boat with sails), and a golden dove (which has positive connotations in many cultures).

While you listen to the authentic flute and wind-chime soundtrack, you could also look out for the fu bat symbol and the gong: these can trigger various bonus features, which we’ll talk about later.

If you’re looking for some specifics, 88 Fortunes is considered to be a high-volatility slot, and has a theoretical RTP (return to player) of 96%.


How to play

When you log in to play any mobile slots game (which will play just as well on your desktop, laptop or tablet), you’ll notice the reels, sidebars, as well as several adjustable buttons on your screen – and 88 Fortunes is no different.

The first thing you need to do – actually, the only thing you need to do to get ready to play – is to select your betting level (that is, how much you want to spend on each spin of the reels). Generally, this will depend on how you are managing your bankroll, and the type of game you are playing. Remember you can always adjust your bets as you go along, too!

What’s so easy about these types of online casino games is that once you have selected your bets, and perhaps made some other adjustments to your settings (such as minimum and maximum bet amounts, sound, and autoplay features), all you need to do is click “spin”. In 88 Fortunes, it’s a big, gold circular arrow button to the right of your screen, so you really can’t miss it!



Now we get to the main part of this casino game review – the features that make these games worth playing.

One of the standout features of 88 Fortunes is something called “All Up”, and it works like this: the more credits you bet, the more gold symbols will show up during gameplay. These will stack up during the game in a separate “All Up” column on the left-hand side of your screen. In turn, this will maximise your chances of landing a big jackpot!

As we mentioned above, this game also offers 243 ways to win, thanks to the fact that there aren’t any set paylines.


Bonuses and jackpots

There are two exciting bonus features to look out for in this game, including the fu bat feature and a free spins round.


Fu bat feature

The fu symbol, which is a colourful symbol that includes letters in the middle and a ring of ornate red bats around it, acts as a wild during this game – this means it can substitute for any other symbol on the reels, and help you form winning combinations. Note that it only lands on reels two, three and four. If you land one or more of these symbols, you might also trigger the fu bat feature, which will lead you to a screen where you can pick from different coins and potentially win a jackpot!

You’ll need to select three of the same coins to win one of the four jackpots (these are the Grand, Major, Minor and Mini), which are symbolised by four different babies. You might win a jackpot automatically, or be taken into a coin-picking round, depending on how much you have bet during the game. Note that the amount you decide to bet per spin can affect the potential jackpot you’re able to win – for example, you might only be able to win the Grand jackpot if you have selected the maximum bet.


Free games

If you’ve ever visited the homepage of our mobile casino, you’ll know that we’re all about free spins.

Like many other slots, 88 Fortunes offers a free-spins round, which essentially means getting to spin the reels and have a few free goes, without having to tap into your bankroll. To win 10 free games, you’ll need to land three, four or five gong scatter symbols.

All lower-paying symbols are removed from the reels in this round (all the card symbols – 9, 10, J, Q, K, A), which means higher-paying symbols on the reels, and potentially greater wins.

What’s great is that you don’t need to do anything during this round – your stake during these spins will be the same as what it was when you triggered the bonus. What’s not to love?

If you’re a fan of Chinese-themed slots, you can’t go wrong with 88 Fortunes. With its colour scheme, symbols and variety of bonus features, you’ll be sure to find yourself thoroughly entertained, and amused by all the animated symbols and cute baby jackpot symbols.
