WHOA, UNIQUE JACKPOT! Fu Dao Le Slot Video - GOOD FORTUNE ARRIVES IN BONUS!
ONE IN A MILLION WIN on the Fu Dao Le slot machine by Bally!
And truth be told, the odds of winning as I did on this one may in fact be one in the tens of millions! Fu Dao Le remains a classic and I just had to take a shot at it with its Maxi Jackpot so high and will likely do so again!
The base game is generally a scatter-based game where you win by landing the same symbols on at least 3 consecutive reels from left to right starting with the leftmost reel although there is also a lines-based high limit version out there too. Additionally, if any wild partially lands on reel 3, it will nudge to fully expand on the reel.
There are three primary features in Fu Dao Le: The Red Envelope Jackpot Feature, the Free Games Bonus, and the Jackpot Feature.
The Red Envelope Feature is triggered by landing special bonus symbols on reels 1 and 5 for a Progressive award that resets at $100 for versions that have a max bet of $8.88.
The Jackpot Feature is randomly triggered whenever a wild symbol lands on reel 3 and the chance of it occurring increases with your bet level. You then choose coins until you match 3 for a Progressive Award although the pick is not a "fair pick" so where you choose doesn't matter on this one.
The Free Games Bonus is triggered by landing bonus symbols on reels 2, 3, and 4 for 8 free games although additional free games are awarded whenever any bonus symbol lands on reel 5. During the bonus, reel 3 now contains special stacked wild multipliers of both 2x and 3x to help you score that Big Win or Jackpot. Finally, the bonus symbols on reels 2 and 4 are now transformed into wild symbols.
A feature that's now common in many slot machines is a "foreshadowing" event which is an audio and visual cue that when it occurs, you know something great will happen and Fu Dao Le may be one of the first games to do this. In Fu Dao Le this occurs when the "Good Fortune Fu Babies" make an appearance and when they do, you will either score a Big Win, have the Free Games Bonus triggered or have the Red Envelope Feature triggered. If this occurs during the Free Games Bonus, you have a shot at a Jackpot even and it's really what you want when you play this one, as you will see, Enjoy!
