Betting Options and Bonus Features
The layout in Towering Fortunes is not quite as tall as the name suggests, containing 3 rows, 5 reels and 20 paylines full of symbols representing wealth. From cigars and alcohol to sports cars, yachts, and planes, the game has it all. The most valuable is the Lady symbol and it pays 50x for a full line.
As great rewards come with high risk, Towering Fortunes has a 4.5/5 volatility rating. In addition, the RTP is set at 96.5%, while the max win is 6,422x the bet. The base game is pretty straight forward with the main feature being Mystery Symbols. When these symbols land, thay all transform into the same matching random paying symbol.
Land 3 or more Money Symbols to enter the Hold & Spin feature. This is the part of the gameplay where the name Towering Fortunes starts making more sense. The normal layout will be replaced by a tall grid of 5 reels and 11 rows. While all the existing Money Symbols fall onto the bottom, players get to keep spinning until all the reels are blocked. Each reel has 3 lives and they only get blocked when no new Money Symbol lands after 3 spins.
In addition, the higher you stack these money symbols, the more valuable they become. From row 1 to 5, no multiplier is applied; but when you get to row 6 - 11, a multiplier of 2x, 5x, 10x, 20x, 30x, or 100x respectively is applied to that reel.
Sure, let’s get the elephant out of the way: the graphics in this game look pretty tacky, even corny. But we don’t judge a book by its cover because what Towering Fortunes slot has to offer in terms of gameplay is quite amazing. From the Mystery Symbols keeping the base game rolling to the bonus that is so satisfying not for its feature but for its design, this game is very entertaining. The mechanics are that of a normal respin bonus but when you stack the money symbols up real high, it’s like you’re building a skyscraper yourself.
