Pinocchio’s Fortune slot review
Pinocchio's Fortune is a 5 reel, 30 pay-line slot that has been released by 2By2 Games on Microgaming's Quickfire platform and takes its theme from the popular childhood fairytale about a craftsmen's wooden creation that simply wishes to become a real boy.
Pinocchio... We Meet Again!
This isn't the first time we've encountered Pinocchio at Gamingslots. The cheeky little so and so also made an appearance as a Wild symbol when we reviewed Blueprint Gaming's stunning Wish Upon a Jackpot slot. Now he's back with a franchise slot all of his own!
On the Reels...
Symbols on the reels will be familiar to those of you that watched the epic Disney movie based on the Carlo Callodi tale of Pinocchio. There are Gepetto, Gepetto's house, a creepy looking interpretation of Jiminy Cricket, a golden key, cigar, wood file, gold coins, and books. The puppet on strings symbol acts as the Wild and replace all other symbols, except for the symbols that trigger the bonus features and free spins bonus round, to complete winning combinations.
Win 16 Free Spins with Pinocchio
Pinocchio is key to triggering the free spins bonus round on this slot. If you hit three or more of him across the reels then you will have the chance to earn either 8, 12, or 16 free spins depending on how many Pinocchio symbols you trigger the free spins bonus round with. In addition to this, every time you hit a Pinocchio symbol on the reels during the free spins then Pinocchio's nose will grow and every time it goes you will receive a free spin. You can earn up to 15 extra free spins.
That is not all. Once you have gone through the free spins you will then be taken to a second screen where you will have the opportunity to pick from a selection of toy boxes to win additional prizes and earn further pay outs.
Find Gepetto to Win More Prizes
There are also two other bonus features to keep you on your toes. If you hit three or more fairy symbols across the reels then you will open up the Find Gepetto Bonus. The fairy symbols only appear on reels 2, 3, and 4 so keep an eye out for them. This is a board game style bonus where Pinocchio must navigate his way over a number of spaces to reach the final space where you will find Gepetto waiting. You must spin the wheel to decide how many spaces on the board you move and this will also decide which prizes you earn with each space on the board possessing a different prize including free spins, multipliers, and cash pay outs.
Win Cash Prizes and Wild Reels with the Puppet Bonus
The second bonus feature that can be triggered is the Puppet Bonus. In order to trigger this feature, you will need to hit three or more of the symbols on the reels that possess a mini-puppet in the corner. In this bonus feature, you will be asked to pick a puppet to reveal a prize including cash pay outs and Wild reels.
Pinocchio's Fortune has a fantastic theme and the game play is really exhilarating. There is basically everything you could want in a slot here. The free spins bonus round is present, there are also two bonus features to trigger, and both of these bonus features are not just your run-of-the-mill boring Pick 'em Bonus types. There are lots of prizes to be had on this slot if luck looks upon you kindly. I can't honestly remember having as much fun playing a slot. A big hit for me.
