March 11, 2017
There are two components to a good online pokie. The first is an interesting theme with great visuals. The second is lucrative gaming features. Arctic Fortune has both these in abundant measure and is therefore a popular video pokie at Microgaming powered Australian online casinos like Casino Mate, Platinum Play and Spin Palace.
The theme of Vikings is extremely popular and every software provider has online pokies based on it. Microgaming has differentiated Arctic Fortune from the pack by setting it in an environment of snowy landscape. The online pokie does away with playing card icons and focuses only on thematic symbols. These include three different Viking warriors, treasure chest, horn of plenty, longship and husky. The Arctic Fortune Logo is the wild symbol, but it appears on reels 2 and 4 only. The map is the scatter symbol that awards payouts multiplied by the total bet when two or more appear anywhere on the reels. To add to the visual appeal, all winning combinations get animated. Three or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels trigger the free spins feature. You will be awarded up to 40 free spins. The payouts during this feature will be multiplied up to a whopping 6 times. In addition you get a bonus award of up to 9000 coins. 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols appearing during the free spins award further 3, 4 or 5 free spins respectively.
Arctic Fortune was one of the first online pokies with the 5x4 structure leading to 1024 ways to win. The top two line payouts award 1500 coins and 1000 coins, which is better than should be expected for an all ways to win online pokie. The players can wager up to 10 coins per payline. The coin size varies from AU$0.01 to AU$0.20. The maximum line bet works out to AU$2.00. Because of the 1024 ways to win, the total bet per spin is obtained by multiplying the line bet by 50. Hence the maximum bet per spin is AU$100. This will bring in the high rollers at Australian online casinos.
