Fortunate 5 is a pirate-themed progressive jackpot slot game from Playtech. The scene is set on a pirate boat with quality graphics, a free spins bonus round with a special Super Spin feature. There are five progressive jackpots in the 5-reel, 15 payline game.
Pirates are always searching for treasure, as are slots players. Together with Captain Redbeard and the other pirates, players stand the chance to find some great treasure. Being a progressive slot, the top payouts vary according to when the specific winning combinations are hit.
Fortunate 5 Slot Overview
The slot game is simple and easy to play. The pirate talk, background music, and pirate symbols combine to make the slot a fun one to play.
Players will see their own treasure as they spin the reels. When four of the same pirates are seen in a single payline from left to right, players will be given an additional spin in which only the fifth reel will spin. The 2nd Chance Re-Spin gives players an additional chance to win a progressive jackpot prize.
The skull and crossbones scatter symbol triggers the Wild Wates Free Games when three or more are seen on the reels. The pirate ship symbol is the wild. It appears on the three middle reels during the main game and can be found on any reel during the free spins round. There are five different pirate symbols, each of which is connected to its own progressive jackpot. Players win the jackpot when Captain Redbeard, Starboard Mary, Mad Dog McDougall, Monsieur Poisson, or Peg Leg Davis appear five times on a single payline.
Payout Table and How To Win
The highest payouts in the game come from the progressive jackpot wins. The largest progressive, Captain Redbeard, is seeded at $2,000 when players make the maximum bet, and will continue to grow until it is hit. All the pirate symbols pay progressive jackpots on five symbols, and regular payouts on three or four symbols on a payline. Payouts are also made on the high value card symbols that are seen on the reels. For more information regarding payouts, look at the detailed pay table.
When three or more scatter symbols are seen on the reels, the Wild Waters Free Games round is triggered. Players are given an unlimited number of spins that stop when five wild ship symbols have been collected. The five wilds are then spread across the reels and frozen in place. Players get to take one more spin, the Wild Storm Super Spin, which comes with an excellent chance of a good win.
