Fishy Fortune from NetEnt: Slot Review - a progressive jackpot from the ocean

Fishy Fortune by NetEnt is a progressive jackpot slot, which comes with a free spins feature. We reviewed the game and provide you with all you need to know about the slot machine's design and game play.

As we have come to expect from NetEnt, the usual buttons are displayed below the reel. Players can bet max within a single click, adjust their coin value and, of course, trigger a spin via the NetEnt-green spin button. Above the reel, the current jackpot amount is displayed, which adds to the thrill Fishy Fortune provides. So far, there’s little fishy about Fishy Fortune!

Special Features

Who would have guessed that? The progressive jackpot in Fishy Fortune is, of course, the stand-out feature. While the standard symbols in this slot machine – especially the 9, 10, J, Q, K and A, made out of driftwood – pay lowly, the progressive jackpot can result in some massive wins. While there is little exciting about the process of receiving the jackpot (players simply have to land five purple octopi symbols), the jackpot amount can – thanks to its progressive nature – climb up to quite some heights swiftly.

Alongside, this bonus feature, Fishy Fortune also come with a pretty decent amount of free spins. Three, four or five oyster symbols (how suitable!) get players ten, twenty or thirty free spins in the game, and also an additional scatter prize. Top marks for the feature-combo in this game!

Theme and Graphics

Upon starting the Fishy Fortune slot game, players face a wonderfully bright underwater world. Whether it is set in an aquarium or in the deep sea, isn’t clear – but that doesn’t matter. All that matters is that the design is pretty sleek, uplifting, and thanks to plenty of blue and colourful fishes, pleasant on the eye.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

Rather than elaborate tunes, pleasant watery sounds play in the background of the Fishy Fortune game. There is no need for the mute button, nor to make your gameplay as quick as possible. With a super free spins feature, players are bound to come across some good wins. For that reason, it’s a good idea to attempt to prolong your gameplay, until you bag some serious wins. The max bet button is, of course, handy, given that you have to bid the maximum, when you want to be in with a chance on the jackpot. Check the jackpot amount first, and decide on whether you want to be in with a chance.

Our Verdict on Fishy Fortune

Fishy Fortune is a solid choice. The features aren't too crazily exciting but provide players with good wins. It's typical of progressive jackpot slots not to have bonus features, such as free spins. This slot is a good exception to this rule, making it quite the stand-out game. This explains why this slot machine by NetEnt is popular among many players.
