Gifts of Fortune Megaways slot by Big Time Gaming is their first oriental-themed Megaways. It has elements of their Golden Catch Megaways slot as we shall see in the free spins bonus. The Chinese appearance appears on many other slot games as we know including 88 Fortunes Megaways from Bally and Pragmatic's 5 Lions Megaways is another popular Megaways example. The appearance, sounds, and symbols here are very common and natural, the musical soundtrack is pretty generic too. Can the player be bestowed with any of these fine gifts or will it be a case of falling fortunes for our bankroll?
The usual configuration is provided here on Gifts of Fortune Megaways with 2-7 rows per reel including a top scrolling reel of 4 individual tiles so 324 to 117649-ways is possible. Winning symbols after wins are removed in tumbles and red Envelope Wilds can only appear on the top reel, and Gold Bowl scatters on all six lower reels. Our top-paying 6-of-a-kind symbol is 50x for the Purple Dragon, Tortoise 3x, Carp 2x, and Frog 1x with six card values of either 0.5 or 0.4x for each full way of 6 symbols. Symbols can appear stacked and are removed and replaced from above for further chances of wins within the same spin.
The Red Packet Wild of Gifts of Fortune Megaways acts as a normal Wild regarding winning symbol combinations but also has another role. It's persistent until moving off the left and when winning symbols are removed they will reveal at least one Fortune Prize Coin per reel - the values are up to 100x bet from 0.5x and are higher the fewer symbols that are present on that reel. These normally drop away but if at least one Red Packet Wild is present, it will collect the values up into a Chest above the reels. The multiplier is 1x, but if two Wilds appear it is 2x and more Wilds can appear on the top reel when symbols are removed. As long as a Packet is present, Fortune Prize Coins will be collected. The multiplier resets for the next spin, and there is a random event possible - the Chest may reveal a 2-10x multiplier. The multiplier does not apply to normal reel pays.
The bonus of Gifts of Fortune Megaways is triggered by 3 or more Gold Bowl scatters with an enhanced 'mega feature' if landing the Purple Bowl on reel 6 as part of the triggering spin. You are awarded 10 free spins with +2 spins for any Bowl over the 3 needed. During the spins, the 1x Chest multiplier awarded for each Wild Packet appearing does not reset, only increases. You earn +4 spins if 3 scatters appear on the lower reels during the bonus with +2 for any over the 3. Any revealed coins and their Fortune Prizes are multiplied by the global multiplier accumulated. If your Wild is part of a win and disappears, then coins are not collected and fall off the reels – a Wild Packet must be present for any Fortune Prize Coins to be paid. If the bonus is triggered including the Purple mega-scatter on reel 6, then the enhanced 'mega feature' is awarded so you get at least one guaranteed Red Packet Wild on the top reel for each free spin.
Some jurisdictions allow you to buy the standard bonus for a 70x stake and the 'mega feature' for a 200x stake. Wherever you play from, win exchange allows wins of 80x or more land can be traded for the bonus. Wins from 25 to 80x can be gambled on a wheel, the winning green proportion is bigger the higher the win is.
Gifts of Fortune Megaways has an RTP of 96.29% and is a slight variant of Golden Catch Megaways as stated earlier. The appearance, sounds, and music are pretty generic for the theme and it does throw the odd decent hit in during base gameplay. The feature is where you want to be and can be frustrating and low in returns, even if you are lucky enough to land the enhanced version. You need Wilds to appear early and get the multiplier up and then hopefully win on small reel heights to hoover up and multiply the higher range of Fortune Prize Coins available on 2-3 row reels. The game seems to be a shelf filler to check the oriental-themed box. Trust me, the big gifts can be very hard to come by here...
