Are you feeling those winter doldrums? Do you have a bad case of the Mondays? Sounds like you need to get away from it all a bit with a gaming experience that will make you feel as though you are on a beautiful sandy beach somewhere. Well, there’s few better ways to get you in that island spirit than playing Fortunes of the Caribbean from WMS. Plus, if you strike it big in the pay version you may just be able to buy a real Caribbean getaway!
What is sure to strike you first about Fortunes of the Caribbean is the game’s extraordinarily bright, cheery presentation. The background and interface shine like the Caribbean sun on a sandy beach. Meanwhile, just looking at the symbols is enough to teleport you to a tropical island locale. The icons here include beach-like staples like pineapples, bananas, giant turtles, pearls, and pretty islander maidens. It is shame, however, that there is no steel drum rhythm in the background to really put you in that laidback mood!
What you will also notice straight away in this 60 line slot is that the unusual layout of the reels. Yes, the two leftmost reels only have two symbol spots, but the likelihood of making a winning combination is the same because the mini-reels only feature two symbols – the pineapple and the giant turtle.
Amassing a Caribbean fortune is actually a pretty straightforward process. We’re not saying it’s easy or particularly likely (especially if you stick to the free version of the game), but playing this slot is quite easy in itself. Get things going by making your ante bet. Note that you can play up to 60 lines and the minimum bet here is $.30. After you have made your wager, click on the spin button on the far right side of the screen to get the action underway!
