Spin that Reel – Planet Fortune Slot Review
Planet Fortune will take you to the sixties when space travel was still a thing of the future. This game is a retro-futuristic, five-reel, 40-payline slot based on a science fiction-inspired planet. It comes with astronauts, robots and futuristic buildings in a classic retro design. It is a bit of Buck Rogers meets the Jetsons meets Dr. Grordbort.
Stackable game characters and the wild robot symbol make the basegame pretty interesting and gives you chances of winning big cash prizes. The robot is the wild symbol, which replaces all symbols and also acts as a scatter. Three or more of these symbols will also trigger the Planet Fortune’s Robot Revolution free spins feature. If you land 5 robot wilds across a payline it will give you 62.5x your stake.
And what to think of the Magnetic Mayhem feature which may be activated randomly during the base game before the reels stop spinning; in this case, 2 or 3 reels stick together and display 2×2 symbols or 3×3 symbols, depending on whether you get 2 or 3 reels spinning together. Any of the symbols can be found on these reels, except for the robot wild, resulting in possible big wins.
Planet Fortune slot free spins feature
Once you manage to land on 3 Robot wilds in Planet Fortune, this triggers the game’s Robot Revolution Free Spin feature. You will receive 10 free spins, during which all wilds that have triggered the feature will become sticky. Any wilds that also appear during this free spins round also remain there, and all wilds will move horizontally 1 reel to the left with each spin. Once a wild reaches the first reel, it drops off from the side of the screen. There is no retrigger possible on this bonus game.
The key to bringing in some big wins are the robots, with ten extra spins granted to players when three or more of them appear on the grid which sparks the Robot Revolution feature. When the game is in this mode, wilds become sticky and the robots sling themselves across the grid from right to left where they fall off.
Planet Fortune features the premium graphics, unique features and smart mechanics that we are starting to get used to with Play’n Go titles. The retro, yet futuristic theme, makes this a likeable game to play and the music and sound effects certainly add to this feeling. We don’t think Planet Fortune is on the same level of some of the premium Play ‘n Go games like Reactoonz, Viking Runecraft and Moon Princess, but it is definitely worth a spin or two.
