The last Play’n Go mobile slot that we added to the review section here at MobileCasino.net was the classic slot Ace of Spades. We mentioned that the developer was pretty happy with that style of game mixed in with their more advanced video slots, but we did not think that we would have another one to contend with quite so soon! Bell of Fortune follows pretty much exactly the same pattern, although it is not just a classic slot, but a proper fruit machine based on the symbols themselves, so pub players are sure to be pretty happy with what this one has to offer.
What to Expect
To be perfectly honest, Bell of Fortune is basically the same game as Ace of Spades with a different theme tacked onto the front, at least in terms of the basic gameplay. The trusted three reels on all good fruit machines are accompanied by just the one pay line that strikes through the middle of the board, and the goal is of course to match up as many of those fruity symbols as possible. Bells are typically pretty valuable on games such as this one and that continues to be the case here, with three of them in a row leading to the biggest prize on the game – although there is a little more than meets the eye when it comes to that particular symbol.
For starters, the bell is not only particularly valuable, but it also serves as a wild card and, in the absence of any scatters and bonus features, it can fill in for absolutely anything else on the board. You may be wondering why you would play this instead of Ace of Spades given that the ace in question not only fills in but also comes with a multiplier that can reach four times. Well, it all comes down to the jackpot.
Progressive jackpots are not something that you see all that often on Play’n Go slots, let alone pub fruit machine types, but that is precisely the trick that is up the sleeve of Bell of Fortune. The developer may not make a jackpot game that is on the level of Mega Moolah or Mega Fortune in terms of the size of the prizes, but what they do offer are smaller jackpots that are still well worth winning and have less competition. Simply – in theory – land three bells on the win line and the full jackpot amount on display at the top of the screen is yours for the taking!
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
We think that you’ll agree that Bell of Fortune, in spite of being about as simple as it gets in terms of mobile slots, has quite the twist in store. You do have to be predisposed to simple, three-reel action with no bonus features in order to not be bored to tears by this game, but if you are happy enough spinning and winning, and want the opportunity to potentially grab a truly fantastic prize along the way, then nothing comes close to this one for overall quality.
