Arcade Fortunes Slots’ visual design is shaped up to look like the interior of an arcade, full of shiny lights signs and various games, which will be testing gamblers’ luck. The player will have the ability to choose between two characters: a boy with orange hair and blue eyes or a girl with violet hair and green eyes. The outlines of the reels are made of neon light and two irresistible shades of purple are dissolving into one another all around the symbols. The game features 5 reels, 3 rows and 18 paylines. Arcade Fortunes Slots supports two jackpots-a Mystery Jackpot (the smaller one) and a Super Slots Jackpot (the bigger one). Additionally, the game is in possession of numerous surprise prizes, extra bonuses and features.
Despite the familiar environment and the pretty obvious theme that is chosen for a slot game, the gameplay of Arcade Fortunes is nonetheless anything but ordinary. The main symbols of the game are the bonus Videogame Machine symbol, the Bubble Gum symbol and the Sticky Wild symbol. The Bubble Gum Feature can be activated through the Bubble Gum symbol itself, which depicts the orange-haired boy making a balloon out of the pink gum that he is chewing. When the Bubble gum symbol appears it will burst and proceed to transform into one, two or three other symbols. The three symbols will be Sticky Wild-s (quite fittingly it is a picture of a splattered chewing gum) and will stick on three positions, which will be different than the position where the Bubble Gum symbol showed up. They will stay on these three new positions for three additional spins, which will create numerous winning combinations and will generate terrific earnings. Players need to remember, however, that the Bubble Gum symbol can only show up on the fifth reel.
One could say that there are as many features and ways to become rich in Arcade Fortunes Slots as there are machines in an actual real-life arcade. Next up in the long list of features in this slot is the Bonus Round, which can be initiated by landing three of the scatter symbols. There are two possible bonus games that can be played after that and the player will have to choose one. They are the Skee Ball Bonus and the Galaxy Bonus. The Skee Ball Bonus will provide the player with three random prizes. Its main screen looks like a circular labyrinth, which will have to be targeted by a yellow ball. The Galaxy Bonus, the main screen of which is basically an action game in which you will have to be shooting alien starships, will deliver a single random prize to the gambler. If somehow, the player is unhappy with his earnings he or she will be able to use the Double Up function. You can use it after any spin, regardless if it is part of a feature, a bonus game or the base game. After the option is selected, the player will be taken to a new screen depicting that famous holiday season machine involving a crane that needs to grab on to one of many toys. If the toy is successfully grabbed, the earnings will be doubled. There is, however a limit to the amount that can be increased and it is 25 000 dollars.
