The 88 Fortunes mobile slot is full of golden symbols and jackpot opportunities, but can it truly bring you the fortune it promises?
Not to be confused with the Wishing You Fortune slot by WMS (same game studio), which looks almost identical.
The red background, the slot jackpots, the little Asian babies… All back to bring what is a very busy slot machine.
Every possible space they could have, they have is taken up with either logos, gold symbols, jackpot amounts or betting options. It feels just a little claustrophobic, with not enough attention paid to the reels in our opinion.
Still, this 88 Fortune slot is from WMS, so it sure is pretty, with lovely little music bringing an authentic feel to this Asian themed game.
Technically this is a jackpot slot, but not a progressive jackpot slot.
You have four jackpots, each get bigger the more you gamble. To give you an idea, at minimum bet the biggest grand jackpot is at 2,000 in cash, whilst at max bet, that increases to 200,000.
However, the pay off for having such a huge instant cash prize available to trigger is that you have to bet more.
So whilst the minimum bet with no jackpot activated is 0.08 per spin (one of the lowest amounts you’ll find in a 243 ways to win 88 Fortune slot), if you want all 4 jackpots open to be won, you actually need to be able to bet 0.88 a spin.
Which isn’t a deal breaker per say, but if that feels uncomfortably high, we’d recommend you try something like the NetEnt Mega Fortune Dreams slot instead.
Considering the stakes are pretty high here, you manage to stay on top of this video slot for a fair bit whilst you wait for either the slot jackpots or the free spins to trigger.
And those free spins are pretty impressive, as all lower paying symbols disappear, and you’re left with only the golden symbols on the board, paying out on multiple lines.
You don’t always win huge, a good average is about 30x your bet, but every once in a while those symbols line up just right and you get huge wins out of nowhere.
This 88 Fortunes slot doesn’t break any moulds, but this Williams Interactive game still provides plenty of fun especially for those willing to tempt a little far east luck.

The Wild Symbol: Is represented by a golden Chinese character surrounded by an intricate red design, which if you look closely, are little red bats. It's hard to explain it, but they call it the FU BAT symbol and it substitutes for all symbols.
Free spin symbols included.
Fu Bat Jackpot Feature: When one or more of those wild symbols appear on screen, you may randomly be awarded a mini-game where you get a chance of a jackpot.
In a half hour gaming session, you might see it happen once or twice.
Here you pick from 12 coins, where you turn over available jackpot characters. Get 3 of the same and you win a jackpot, generally the Minor or Mini one, we had to admit, but even that gives you a good 20x to 40x your bet.
You do need to pay extra for each of the casino jackpots, namely:
Now you know why it's called the 88 Fortunes slot machine.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3 or more gong scatter symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger 10 free spins.
However, the Ace to 9 symbols will disappear from the reels, leaving you with only the high paying symbols on show, and giving you dramatically more wins, as there's simply less symbols.
You can re-trigger the free spins, something we've done a couple of times, so very possible indeed.
You don't have to play for the big win jackpots, but considering that the bonus game for these trigger remarkably easy, it does add a little extra spice to what is a fairly generic Asian slot.
But generic just means that whilst we've seen it all before, this 88 Fortunes mobile slot still manages to pack a punch, namely in a brilliant free spin round and 243 ways to win reels.
It's a little friendlier than it's Wishing You Fortune sister, but if you want something that has more wilds and bigger wins, we'd also recommend the Golden Legend slot by Play'n GO.
Or you can play 88 Fortunes at one of these mobile casinos:
