The decadent world of gems has always been something that baffles me, as I don't understand how people can hold rocks in such high esteem. I'm in the minority though, as we see countless commercials featuring them, women wearing stones on their fingers, and even slot machines featuring them prominently in their icons. NetEnt's Turn Your Fortune slot is no different, as it has these rocks formed into creatures and gives you a chance to win cash, which you can then spend to get your own bling.
Turn Your Fortune is a 5 reel, 40 payline video slot that has a high-end look and feel to it, with the reels set next to a golden tower that has a lock and different numbers etched into it. The icons in the game are golden with gem colors or outright gem figures and include J, Q, K, A, a snail shell, a green fish, yellow turtle, orange owl, red lion, and a pink butterfly. The visuals are sharp and presented in high definition, looking good on either a desktop screen or smartphone.
The features in the game are stacked, providing re-spins, scatters, free spins, stacked symbols, and wilds. There is also a Fortune Wins feature where players can win progressively higher credit amounts. The feature is set off by filling a meter of collected symbols and then scoring a key on the re-spins or free spins feature. The combined features with the paylines give Turn Your Fortune a 96.2% return to player (RTP) percentage, which is about average for an online slot these days.
Overall, I have to say that I was a bit underwhelmed by the game itself. The features sure are nice, but the theme and symbols just seemed a bit boring to me. I also went through some dry spells, which certainly didn't help build up any hype on my part. Still, this game does have an audience that I'm sure will love it. One thing I should note is that the game does play brilliantly on mobile devices, looking sharp and playing with no hiccups whatsoever. I dare say this makes a better mobile slot than a desktop one.
If you're a person who enjoys shiny things and have a bit of an elegant streak to you, then this game is one that I'd definitely consider giving a spin.
