Join Captain Redbeard and his crew in the Fortunate 5 mobile slot that is a wonderfully surprising voyage on the high seas, full of treasure.
Playtech slot games are, generally, gorgeous, but it’s been a while since we found any new mobile slots of theirs truly surprising.
The reason for that *spoiler alert* is that you come in expecting a pirate slot full of cliches and average spins.
Instead, what you get is a well thought out machine, with five easy to hit progressive jackpots, and huge wins available on the free spins.
Hang on to your sails buccaneer! These are no ordinary spins.
Unlike most jackpot video slots, where you have to sacrifice a virgin on the blue moon to trigger the right symbols, the Fortunate 5 slot game takes a very different view.
The 5 progressive jackpots are done by getting a 5 of a kind win on any of our main pirate characters.
Needless to say, we’ve hit a it a couple of times know it happens. More importantly, and far more fun, if you get a chance at a jackpot 5 of a kind, but miss, you, sometimes, get a second chance re-spin. Just because.
It certainly adds extra thrills to every spin.
Sure, the jackpots are not in the millions, like they are on the slot Mega Moolah, but who needs millions when you can win over 4,000 times your bet on a good jackpot spin?
That said, you should watch your wallet a little bit on this one. The Fortunate Five slot machine is fairly high variance; meaning you could go for quite a few spins with little to fill the wallet.
But then, the free spins show up, or an awesome 4 or 5 of a kind, and you’ll be boarding wins that could lead you to owning your own Spanish armada.
And sure, you don’t get any multipliers here. But what you do get is unlimited free spins. That’s right, unlimited. We’ve played 8, we’ve played 48 spins, no doubt some have played more. It’s all down to the luck of the high seas.
Needless to say, the Fortunate 5 slot game surprised us, reminding us that Playtech know how to balance big thrills, with entertaining, beautiful, graphics.

Wilds: The really big, tall, warship is the wild symbol and only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. Mostly, your main friend in this, at times, lonely sea voyage.
5 Progressive Jackpots and 2nd Chance Re-Spins: Get 5 pirate symbols on any of these 15 paylines, and you'll win one of 5 progressive jackpots. Captain Redbeard is the most valuable symbol.
If you get 4 symbols, you sometimes get a 'second chance re-spin' on reel 5, giving you an extra free spin to get that 5th symbol.
Wild Water Free Games: 3 skull and crossbones scatter symbols, or more, will trigger the free spins.
Here the sails go up on your game, and your set in the dark of a storm. These free spins will last for as long as it takes to collect 5 wild symbols.
We've played up to 48 spins was our best. But had far less as well. Don't despair, though there are no multipliers, there's a great final spin, where the 5 wild symbols you collected go back on screen, and you get a final re-spin.
Leading to some impressive wins most of the time. A great high to end a great Fortunate 5 free spins rounds.
Though we don't mind Pirate themed slot machines, it's never been a huge draw. So imagine our surprise as we played the Fortunate 5 mobile slot, and found ourselves completely drawn in to a world of gold coins and treasure troves.
The fact that it host 5 small progressive jackpots that feel within reach, as all you need is a 5 symbol win, and we are onboard with this Playtech game.
We haven't had this much fun with this software since the gorgeous Great Blue slot.
