The Freemasons are steeped in mystery, often likened to The Illuminati or similar secret societies; a lot of what they do and stand for isn’t well known, and thus it becomes open to suspicion and speculation.
According to the Freemasons themselves, they’re a non-political, non-religious group that seeks only knowledge through self-wisdom.
Whether gamers believe this is another thing entirely, which is precisely what Booming Games are hinting at in their three-reel slot, Freemasons Fortune. The backdrop is set in the grandest of homes, usually known as a Grand Lodge. The room the matrix is housed within is so decadent and flowing with a rich tapestry of heritage.
How to play Freemasons Fortunes
Players can locate their game table at the screen's bottom right beneath the reels. Players have a maximum of nine paylines they can keep active, or they can play with less if they desire.
The game's autoplay function will automatically spin the reels without interruption. Players set how much this wish to bet each line and how many games they wish to play and once established, the autoplay kicks in.
Symbols in Freemasons Fortunes
Despite Freemasons Fortune looking like it will be packed with unique features and substantial rewards, sadly it is not that plentiful in the way of both prize money or gameplay features.
Freemasons Fortune isn’t going to make players very rich unless they hit a winning streak of two-way pays, and even achieving this is going to be tough.
The scatter symbol in Freemasons Fortune helps players trigger a series of ten free spins on the house, yet again this doesn’t really offer up much else, which still is highly disappointing for such a visually attractive game. It's only the two-way wins on active paylines that keeps wins ticking over.
When players land three or more of these symbols, in the form of a skull and crossbones, players will enter a selection of ten waves where a win is won both ways. Players usually obtain a win from left to right, and that’s that, but here in Freemasons Fortune they are able to win both left to right and right to left; it’s a trivial feature, but it does help make a difference to a players win percentage.
Other symbols in Freemasons Fortune are icons related to the Illuminati, for example, a pyramid and a square and compasses. These make up the higher-winning symbols, whilst Ten, Jack, Queen, King and Ace make up the higher-paying cards.
Overall Freemasons Fortune is a very low-risk game no matter which online slot casino players choose. There are very few features or extra bonus built into this game, so Freemasons Fortune is precisely for those who prefer something simple and satisfying, or has a passion for Freemasonry.
Freemasons Fortune doesn't really work, mainly because it’s just not rewarding enough for experienced gamers to pack some big wins. Despite the exquisitely designed graphics you would come to expect with Betsoft, this online casino slot game just is not worth the effort.
