Fortune Rangers by NetEnt released on 30.01.2020 is a 5-reel & 3-3-4-4-5-row online slot with 76 ways to win and a 96.90% RTP. This is an Asian-themed game offering players a max win of up to 3,040x their stake. Fortune Rangers can be played on all devices from €0.20 to €200 per spin and is considered a low volatility game.
As mentioned above, there are a couple of special features available in Fortune Rangers as well as a wild symbol and scatter symbol. The scatter symbol will trigger the Free Spins Bonus round while the Lucky Wilds Reels Feature will be triggered randomly during the main game.
Scatter and Wild Symbols
The wild symbol of the slot is represented by a golden dragon and has the ability to substitute all other symbols except for the scatter. The wild can also turn the reels into Lucky Wild Reels. The scatter symbol is represented by the well-known yin and yang symbol and will trigger the Free Spins Bonus feature when 3 or more of them land anywhere on the reels during the main game.
Lucky Wilds Reels Feature
The Lucky Wilds Reels Feature will randomly be triggered during the main game. In this feature, a separate reel will appear featuring only wild symbols. You can get anywhere between 1 and 5 of the reels turned into Lucky Wild Reels, meaning you can be in for some pretty big wins here should you get all 5 reels as Wilds. This is without a doubt the feature that can bring the biggest wins in the whole slot.
Free Spins Bonus Feature
In this feature, you can expect to be getting up to a total of 16 free spins. Should you land 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols on the reels, this will reward you with 8, 12 or 16 free spins respectively. When this happens the feature will be triggered. Another part of the Free Spins Bonus Feature is that the reels will be linked together.
The first 2 reels of the game will be linked together meaning the 1st and 2nd reel will be matching. At the same time, the second 2 reels will also be linked together, meaning the 3rd and 4th reel will also be matching. The Linked Reels will however not affect the 5th reel. This feature will give you the opportunity to secure more of the pay lines, which in return could mean better wins for you.
Design and Symbols
Fortune Rangers is, as we have mentioned above, a game with a clear Asian style through it all, where you will be seeing different Anime type characters on the reels. The theme of the slot is however inspired by martial arts, while there aren’t many martial arts going on neither in the background or on the sides of the slot you will be seeing a couple of characters showing off their moves on the reels. In the background, you will instead be seeing what seems to be a classic temple with the moonlight shining down on the streets. The reel set itself has been framed by red and gold as well as a couple of lanterns hanging from each corner and a golden dragon surrounding the slot title.
In terms of the symbols you will be seeing on the reels, we are happy to say there are no card symbols in sight. The low-value symbols of the game include a paper fan, a scroll of some sort, 3 golden coins tied together and golden bars. There are just 2 high-value symbols, which of course are the two different anime-styled characters with a female and male character in place. The male warrior with a red tie around his head is of the highest value, giving you 10x your total stake for five of a kind.
Then we have special symbols. The scatter symbols of the game is a yin and yang symbol with some Chinese letters over it, and is responsible for triggering the Free Spins Bonus Feature when 3 or more land on the reels. There is also a wild symbol which has the ability to substitute all standard symbols on the reel set, the wild is represented by a golden dragon.
Our Thoughts on Fortune Rangers
NetEnt is as you already may know, well-known for creating some of the best slots on the market, giving us top quality again and again. While Fortune Rangers doesn't really impress in terms of graphics or design, we still think it has the possibility to turn a few heads. Even though we can't help but think how much more they could have done with a martial theme in place.
However, with the Lucky Wilds Reels feature, there will at least be something going on the keep things interesting for a while for most players. With the fact that the entire reel set can be turned to Wilds is something that will interest most players. As for the Free Spins Bonus feature, we would have liked to see it possible to win some more spins or at least making it possible to have the feature re-triggered. Seeing this is a low volatility slot, the maximum win you can look forward to is at a low of 800x your stake. All in all a pretty average slot, but not the first choice for us with so many other great NetEnt slots to choose instead.
