On the 25th of January, Play'n GO have announced that a brand new slot will boldly go to where no man has gone before: to Planet Fortune.
Later on this month we will be releasing our awards of the best providers and games of 2018.
Now, we don’t want to give the game away, but we promise you that the Play’n GO slot making studios feature very high on our list.
And even if you’re not as big a fan as we are, you can’t deny that their latest releases have been fantastic.
Play’n GO rarely repeat themselves, but they have made several Asian themes, Viking games and underwater adventures.
This is their first journey into the far reaches of space… if you don’t count Space Race, which we don’t because that was one of their first and worst games.
Instead, let’s clean the slate and look at the start of a new generation of Sci-fi slots for Play’n GO.
Play’n Go don’t usually create 40 payline slot machines. The only one we can think of, off the top of our heads, is the Wild North mobile game, which we actually really like, but wasn’t one of their biggest hits.

So it’s nice to see them expand their portfolio with different types of machine, especially as (in true Play’n GO style), they’re still managing to make this accessible for everyone.
We’ve been told that the minimum bet is only going to be 0.20 a spin, half of the amount of the usual 40 payline mobile slots.
Youngun’s might not be familiar with the iconic sci-fi movie Forbidden Planet by MGM, but it revolutionises science fiction movies as we know them.
It was the first to be set fully in space, the first to give robots a personality and voice, the first to see Humans travel at light speed.
And it had hot beautiful blondes, a dashing space captain, and ancient alien technology that warped the minds of men.
At a time when it’s popular to go dark and gritty when you head into space, Play’n GO have decided to go back in time to a pastel coloured world of adventure.
Granted, you are given your Ace to 10 symbols, but each with its own planet and rings that make them phase out against the high paying symbols.
High paying symbols which, we are told, will come stacked 2, 3, or 4 high – a must for any good 40 payline game.
So far, so good, for this Planet Fortune slot game.
Call us mad, but we are all for the robot revolution, especially if it delivers the kind of wins this Play’n GO phone slot promises.
Every game has at least one big feature that makes it stand out from the pack.
Sometimes it doesn’t even have to be that big; just a simple multiplier wheel like in Big Win Cat can make the difference between mediocre and great.
The well-named VideoSlots casino has almost every software you can think of, and more…
And now this Planet Fortune online slot joins the ranks, which is a very good indicator of things to come.
Mostly because it’s one less symbol on the reels, and you know that just getting three on the reels will start a whole series of fantastical events.
Ok, so many not so “fantastical” at first. In fact, some of you would argue it’s pretty standard, seeing as almost every new slot game we write about is a video slot with free spin bonus rounds.
But you know what? We love free spins in fruities, pokies, one arm bandits, or whatever you want to call them.
They give your wallet a much needed break, and this one comes with a few surprises of their own.
The wilds that trigger the free spins bonus will not only stay on screen but walk by one to the edge of the screen on each spin.
Any other wilds that land will also then become sticky and start walking, giving you multiple chances at multiple wins over 40 paylines.
Fans of games like Jack n the Beanstalk by NetEnt should recognise the concept.
It’s a feature that we’ve come to love in mobile slot games.
This is the big question mark over the whole Planet Fortune slot game; the secret Magnetic Mayhem feature.
One that can happen on any spin, you get 2 or 3 adjoining reels stick together, and inside only 2×2 or 3×3 symbols will show up.
Interesting combo, but how fun it will be to play, we’ll find out on the 25th of January.
Until the newest slot in Play’n GO’s portfolio comes out, it’s hard to say exactly how it will play.
And granted, it’s not quite as revolutionary as it would seem – all the features are familiar.
In fact, we’ve even gotten a slot with walking wilds just this week in the form of the Pied Piper slot by Quickspin.
So we suspect that this Planet Fortune slot on mobile and online will match its themes; a fresh new take on features and bonus games we’ve seen and loved.
The fact that you can win 2,500 times your bet will no doubt help you want to play on the day.
Till then, there’s always games like Chinese New Year and Prosperity Palace to keep to prepare you for the New Year ahead.Start Playing at Videoslots »
