Foxium brings us their fantasy superhero, Adelia – The Fortune Wielder. This young, voluptuous caricature of a woman is out on the hunt for riches and immortality and it’s your job to get her to share some with you; it’s quite the parable for modern life.
Here we have a 5x3 slot with a standard 20 paylines. Set in a picturesque world of ruins and magic, surrounded by mountainous landscape - it’s very Game of Thrones meets Harry potter meets Barbie. The reels are spun on ancient ruins, adding to the mystical feel and the soundtrack is a predictable mash up of epic film scores and period, flute-like movie folk music. We also love the metallic coin sound when there’s a win - very Lord of the Rings.
It’s all about the looks
As she stands to the left of the scene wielding her stick around, you have a range of symbols to contend with on the reels themselves. High value symbols are her staff, a book, a pouch, a dagger and a little bottle of blue potion; 10, J, Q, K and A represent lower value prizes.
The wild symbol is a large purple and gold badge with a ‘W’ encrusted across it. The symbols will only appear over reels 2, 4 and 5 in the standard game and substitute all other symbols to facilitate wins, apart from the special Adelia scatter symbol.
You might get a bonus
Adelia can appear stacked on reels two and four; get 4, 5 or 6 of these scatters and you’ll bag 10, 20 or 30 free spins respectively. You’ll also get two extra spins every time she appears during this round.
Sometimes symbols have a small gold coin in the corner, get any of these and they’ll be added to one of three empty spaces below the treasure chest, found at the top left. Fill all these spaces and the chest will open revealing upgraded symbols, each now having a multiplier value of between 2x and 5x your win. Appearing in order, the blue chest will upgrade the 10, J and Q symbols, the green chest will upgrade the K, A and blue potion symbol, and the purple chest will upgrade the staff, book, pouch and dagger symbols.
The wild symbol can appear on reels two, three, four and five during this feature. Trigger this round by getting a stack of the purple and gold wilds on reel three, the subsequent free spins you’ll win will benefit from having the wilds lock into place, provided you win on every spin that follows for the duration of the feature.
Adelia The Fortune Wielder video slot has the stunning graphics, the funky animations and the free spins round with a twist, and to be quite honest we’re struggling to find fault. Wins-wise, it pays well, and has a decent RTP of 96.50%.
Not all reviews around the net are as favourable, but after having an afternoon playing this slot, we we’re left wondering why, and indeed if we’d missed something. But no, it’s a decent slot and we like it, and we think you will too. So there!
