Enter a traditional Chinese shop, where this Fortune Girl mobile slot will introduce you to a world of trinkets, and the occasional treasure.
There’s something about stacked mystery symbols that is lovely by the far east.
Which means that, on every spin, one set of stacked mystery symbols will turn and become any of the other symbols on screen.
The thing is, every time we found something we love about this Microgaming Fortune Girl slot game, there seemed to be a bit an unexpected drawback.
Like the theme for example. We like the 2D Manga feel to the main character and the golden lion scatter.
So why then use generic treasure symbols and Chinese characters for everything else?
Which sounds awesome right? You get 14 free spins, where you can find super stack mystery symbols – where unlike the base game where they are stacked 4 high, these are stacked a colossal 20 high.
Meaning bigger stacks of what could be the highest paid symbol, scatter, or wild!
But that’s not our problem with this Microgaming slot feature isn’t that mostly you get those lowly paid characters instead, but the multipliers.
Which you can only increase when you land 3 scatters. So this multiplier trail is a ‘trail’ only in theory. Getting 3 scatters multiple times over 14 free spin bonus games is no easy feat.
That said, we can’t complain about those mystery stack symbols. They’ve come to the rescue more than once whilst we’ve been playing this Fortune Girl slot, allowing for a few fun thrills.
The fact that you can win 6,000 times your bet no doubt kept us spinning for a few more rounds, as there’s few slot machines on mobile with such high win limits.
However, if you’d rather have a little more action, but don’t mind a lower top win, NetEnt’s Motorhead makes good use of those Mystery symbols as well.

Mystery Symbols: The shop doors are the mystery symbol; when it shows up it will turn into any one of the other symbols on screen, including scatter and wilds.
It comes 4 stacked in the base game, and 20 stacked in the free spins.
Doesn't always guarantee a win, but brings a little thrill as those doors open to reveal what could be a winning symbol.
Wild: The Fortune Girl game logo is wild and replaces all other symbols on screen except scatter.
Scatter: The golden lion is the scatter symbol, as as you can find it in the mystery symbol stack, pays out whether you find 3 or 15 of them.
15 pays 1,200 times your bet, so it's a good symbol for the mystery stacks to reveal.
Scatters and Free Spins: Get 3 or more scatters and you'll trigger 14 free spins, where the mystery symbols are now stacked 20 high.
The free spins start at a 1x multiplier, and will increase to 2x, 3x and then finally 5x every time you get 3 scatters on screen.
Hard work when you consider the Cool Wolf slot will give you similar multipliers just for getting a win.
This Fortune Girl mobile video slot, much like the main character, teases you with promises of richness, but only the lucky few will manage to get past first base.
The fortune is there, certainly, and the mystery symbols liven things up, but it's hard work to get to the free spins and the big wins.
We'd almost have preferred it if they'd kept it simple, like in the Hong Kong Tower slot where you get no free spins, but frequent occurring bonus game and mystery symbols.
