By the time you read this, the ostensible blockbuster film Wonder Woman will have come (juuuuust about a generation too late), gone, collectively nearly forgotten and registered as a blip on the cultural EKG. Finally will the Amazons leave in peace to practice the (2,000-year-old) arts of warfare while magnanimously giving slots players chances to win jackpots’ worth of coinage, as in the Fortunes of the Amazons slot.
Yeah, you’d like that, wouldn’t you? Except you wouldn’t, because immortal half-deities such as these ladies would no more hesitantly break your neck than snap a branch off an olive tree sapling. Relax: It’s just a slots game, folks, and a fairly well engaging one at that.
Fortunes of the Amazons is a 5-reel, 25-payline slots game that can be wagered upon at various increments from 2¢ to $2.50 per payline per spin; this makes the max wager on a single spin a rather odd $62.50. (Dude, Amazon culture is weird!)
The lower-paying symbols are various amulets, weapons and the corset-style bronze (but seemingly gold-plated) armor. The armor is the lowest-paying of the bunch, which strikes us as odd because isn’t the so-inclined paramour who gets the Amazon warrior out of that thing the real big winner? Unless it’s a look-upon-the-naked-form-of-the-Amazons-and-die thing, of course…
We also get a trio of Amazon heroines. With few other distinguishing characteristics to their names, these are the blonde, the brunette (really kind of a dirty blonde) and a Diana of Themyscira/Wonder Woman-looking raven-haired babe.
The burning WILD is – get this – the wild symbol. In addition to doing the usual wild thing, i.e. substituting for most other symbols and making up winning combinations, it also awards 2500x for five on an active payline.
The symbols marked FREE SPINS below a valiant Amazon warrior on a mighty steed does what it promises.
When the free spins/scatter symbols are hit in reels 2, 3 and 4, five free spins are awarded, with each spin producing a sticky wild. The reels change to accommodate more bonus symbols, including a “Bonus Wheel” symbol which launches the über-lucrative Luna Bonus Wheel feature.
In the Fortunes of the Amazons slots game, the "Luna Bonus Wheel" feature is also triggered durig these free spins. Land three of these “Bonus Wheel” symbols in reels 1, 3 and 5 to spin the moon's wheel for big coinage and prizes.
Only those who visit Paradise Island can say for sure, but here’s to thinking that in the Themyscira version, Vanna runs the show while Sajak turns the letters and mindlessly claps through spins)
One more, believe it or not. The "Amazons' Fire" feature is triggered randomly after any spin. This immediately results in one free spin with the guarantee of four wild symbols placed anywhere on the reels.
