AWESOME SESSION! Rising Fortunes Slot Video - HUGE WIN, ALL FEATURES!
Rising Fortunes Jin Ji Bao Xi remains an awesome game that combines play mechanics of 88 Fortunes and Fortune 3 Echo Fortunes and has inspired so many new games since its creation!
In the base game, you win by landing the same symbol on 3 or more consecutive reels from left to right starting with the leftmost reel and to help, wild symbols can be found on reels 2, 3 and 4 although the real fun, not surprisingly, is with the bonus which is initiated by landing 6 or more bonus symbols each of which has credit values on them which can range from 8 to 888 credits multiplied by your bet multiplier.
Upon bonus initiation, the values on your bonus symbols are totaled and you then choose the "Top Up Bonus" or the "Free Games Bonus" and while I assume the payback percentage is comparable for each my personal opinion is to play the Top Up Bonus if you have a relatively large bonus total amount and to play the Free Games Bonus if this amount is on the smaller side, although I'd love to hear other opinions on this!
Upon choosing the Top Up Bonus, you are awarded 6 free spins and your initial symbols are locked. During each bonus spin, you can now only land a Gold Symbol, a Green Symbol, or a +1 Spin symbol. For each Gold Symbol you land, you are awarded the total of your original trigger amount. For each Green Symbol you land, you are awarded the total amount of all values currently on the reels. Additionally, if you initiate the bonus with 11 or more bonus symbols, then landing any Green Bonus Symbol will have an associated multiplier with it based on the number you initiated the bonus with minus 9! If the number of initiating symbols is 9 then a number of positions on up to 5 reels that are not held may be replaced with the Green Bonus Symbols and if the number of initiating symbols is more than 9, then all Gold Symbols are replaced with Green Symbols for the remainder of the bonus. Each spin, 1 reel may switch to an alternate reel set that does not contain either the Gold or Green Bonus Symbols and the chance of that occurring changes as the bet increases. Finally, if you Fill the Screen with all bonus symbols you will be awarded the Grand Jackpot!
The Free Spins Bonus is just like 88 Fortunes in that all non-premium symbols are removed from the reels although special Gold bonus symbols may land and any that do award you the total value of the bonus symbols you initiated the bonus with. Retriggers are possible for 3 additional spins if you land 3 or more bonus symbols. Upon selection of this bonus, you may also be awarded the Grand Jackpot if your bet level qualifies for it, an interesting feature for sure!
The Jackpot Bonus is now a fairly standard feature in many games and is randomly initiated when at least one wild symbol lands. You pick 3 until you match a Progressive from Mini all the way to Grand, although you need to bet 36 credits or more to qualify for the Major or Grand. Where you pick doesn't matter as it's all predetermined and the accumulation of coin over time in the bowl doesn't matter either, it's just for effect.
