88 Fortunes Slots Game Overview
With a deluxe Oriental theme coming to life in your living room (you half expect someone to reach out of the screen and hand you a fortune cookie), the ability to buy extra gold symbols with additional credits and four progressive jackpots in play, there's no doubt that this is a game that has huge potential. 88 Fortunes is one of the greats when looking at themed slots because of the jackpots it offers and the amount of fun the game can be to play.
But with so many other Chinese-themed games on the market such as Lucky 88, Tiger Moon and Emperor's Garden, does 88 Fortunes have what it takes to compete? It's one of the top slot games in 2018. Let's put the slot through its paces

With 3 rows and 5 reels, 88 Fortunes plays more or less like any other 5-reel online slot. The game uses a volatile 243-ways-to-win pay system. That means that matching symbols that appear from left to right will pay out as long as they land on adjacent reels.
88 Fortunes also uses a feature called All Up. The more credits you bet, the more gold symbols will appear in your game and this will maximize your odds of landing a big jackpot later.
The overall theme is of the Orient. The reels are drenched in gold and we find luscious gold coins, gold statuettes, and gold junks. There's even an ornate 'Fu Bat' which acts as the 88 Fortunes online slot's wild symbol. Coins range from 0.01 to 1.00 in the game. Stakes move up in increments of 8 (a lucky number in Chinese culture). The max bet is therefore a healthy 88.00 per spin.
Look out for the Fu Bat symbol. It is wild and substitutes for all symbols. However, it only appears on Reels 2, 3 and 4. When the Fu Bat appears, you may also be entitled to a progressive jackpot. This is determined on how many gold symbols you have playing at that time.
This is where the 'All Up' betting format comes in. For extra credits you can have more symbols turn to gold. For example, 1 extra gold icon costs you 8 credits but five gold symbols will set you back 88 credits. The more gold symbols you pay for, the more progressives you can unlock.
There are four progressives to aim for (Mini, Minor, Major, and Grand). You will have 12 coins appearing on a second screen to choose from. Click the coins and one of the jackpot child symbols will appear. If you match three jackpot icons you win the corresponding progressive.
Look out for the gongs. If you land 3, 4 or 5 of those on adjacent reels you will activate a bonus game with 10 free spins. Only the high limit symbols make an appearance, so it's goodbye to the Ace, King, Queen, Jack, 10, and 9.
88 Fortunes is also available on mobile, which is quite surprising considering how cluttered the standard version of the game can feel sometimes. However, SG Gaming have done a great job of paring the game down so it can be played on smartphones and tablets.
Of course, the graphics and animations aren't quite as impressive on mobile devices but we're happy to take that trade-off if it means that we get to take 88 Fortunes on the move with us wherever we go! Just make sure your Adobe Flash is up to date and you mobile browser can handle HTML5.
The 88 Fortunes slot is an engrossing game, with a theme that looks beautiful and sounds great too. It's a little on the busy side, and can certainly take players a bit of time to get familiar with, but we think it's worth putting that effort in.
Its jackpot may not be on the same level as those offered by progressive millionaire makers, but it's much higher than some others on the market. And, with 243 ways to win, you stand to enjoy plenty of smaller wins while you chase that jackpot.
