Will you worship at the altar of this Idol of Fortune slot? You’ll be chasing up to 88 mystery symbols in the free spins that spread to give you huge top wins and exciting spins.
The Idol of Fortune mobile slot looks like a standard 5×3 reel 243 ways to win machine, with wilds, scatters, free spins and mystery symbols.
Add a maximum win of 10,000x your bet and a high RTP of up to 96.2% (this can change casino to casino, so make sure you open up the slot and check) and this looks like a perfect Play’n GO slot.
At this temple, you have plenty of idols to worship, from the elephant, lion, peacock, snake, and mouse sitting at the top of the paytable, to the more familiar Ace to 10 on the lower end. The paytable is strong enough to pay that top win without any multipliers, so it’s worth sitting up and paying attention.
Because during the free spin bonus, those mystery symbols will expand and cover the reel, one spin at a time, allowing you to get the same set of symbols on multiple reels – all the reels potentially. That’s what makes this slot game so special.
The slot theme is hard to fault, it looks better than the Pearls of India slot or even the Wild Bazaar review by NetEnt. You have the Elephant goddess overlooking the five reels, ready to celebrate the moment you get a good win or a wild symbol shows up.
But it’s the Elephant scatter on the reel that matters most, as 3 will trigger the free spins. Then, it’s your time to choose the volatility of the slot – will you pick more free spins but with fewer mystery symbols on the reel? Or will you pick fewer spins but a whole load more mystery symbols?
Or will you be the bravest of all and pick the Mystery pick? You won’t know how many free spins or mystery symbols you’ll get, could be only 8 spins with 8 mystery symbols and you’ll feel ripped off.
But this is the only way to catch as many as 20 free spin with up to 88 mystery symbols, and if you do, you might come close to getting that top win of over 10,000x your bet.
The Idol of Fortune slot free spins are equally exciting and frustrating. Why? Because those mystery symbols don’t show up stacked like in the 50 Dragons slot by Aristocrat.
Instead, they land and, one spin at a time, they spread up or down to cover the reel. That’s great if you get a mystery symbol on all 5 reels at once, but frustrating if you only get 1 or 2 at a time, separated by enough symbols in between to make it difficult to create real wins.
That said, get 3 mystery symbols next to each other, and as they spread and give you the exact same symbol, there is a real thrill here that is hard to beat.
Of course, it’s not the only way to win big – you can randomly trigger the wild jackpot where you’ll pick from symbols to win one of four in-game jackpots, the biggest one paying out 5,000x your bet.
Plenty of wins to win in this Idol of Fortune mobile slot, but a few lucky spins are needed to get there. That’s what happens when you play high variance slots games at on of your favourite online casino sites.

Wilds: The wild symbol is the Temple Doors and substitutes for all symbols, except the scatter.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3 or more Elephant scatter symbols trigger the free spin feature. Before you start, you need to choose one out of 6 possible options. this determines the number of free spins and the number of Mystery symbols added to the reels.
Mystery symbols are only present during the Idol of Fortune slot bonus. When they show, they stick to the reels and spread one symbol up or down, per spin, until they cover the whole reel, before disappearing. Mystery symbols will always show the same symbol.
Wild Prize: On any paid spin, this feature may randomly trigger by lighting the reels to gold. if a wild lands on a gold reel, you trigger this bonus. You then have to pick 3 identical symbols to win one of the instant cash prizes of:
The Idol of Fortune slot machine is so pretty to look at we were almost going to give this online slot review another star. But, even with a healthy top win of 10,000x your bet, the mechanics are a little too frustrating to make it a must-play.
That said, you can't deny that stacks of spreading mystery symbols are unusual enough, that you might want to investigate if this unusual feature might just bring you to nirvana.
The free spins come surprisingly often for a high variance machine, and the low minimum bet of 0.10 a spin is value for money on a 243 ways to win slot.
A good Play'n GO slots addition that does enough to be entertaining to play, but maybe not enough to stick to our minds in the future.
