Long Mu Fortunes slot review (MicroGaming)
We often complain about Microgaming slots for lacking originality merely being clones of existing slots
With Long Mu Fortunes, Microgaming has proven us wrong.
This oriental-themed video slot, created by the game studio Fortune Factory, is full of entertaining bonus features and jackpots. Even better, there are some surprisingly high prizes.
It’s all a bit average in terms of theme, though: gold coins, Chinese background music, and the occasional striking gong. Besides, the visuals give us the impression that we are playing a slot made in 2015 rather than in 2019.
Nevertheless, if you overlook the visuals and the (not so original) theme, you soon find out that Long Mu Fortunes has a lot to offer in terms of variety.
Gameplay and features of the Long Mu Fortunes slot
Long Mu Fortunes has 10 fixed paylines, divided over 5 reels with 3 rows of symbols.
Bets start from $€ 0.10 per spin, and the maximum bet is a modest $€ 25 per spin.
You can win two big jackpots: the Grand Jackpot, which yields a win of a staggering 5,000 x the bet. The “minor jackpot,” which is called the Major Jackpot, still produces a more than satisfactory win of 100 x the stake.
What are the theoretical RTP, the variance and the maximum win of the Long Mu Fortunes Slot?
The payout percentage of Long Mu Fortunes is 96.44%. The RTP includes the prizes paid out for the jackpots. It is not clear how many times the additional jackpots are paid out and, therefore, how much of the RTP is consumed by the jackpot wins.
Taking the jackpot wins into consideration, we expect that the Mu Fortunes slot variance to be medium to high.
It implies that the top prizes are in the range of 500x to 1000x the bet. The jackpot of 5,000x the bet is seen as realistic, but chances of bagging must be marginal.
Symbols and payouts
The symbol design seems to take straight from the standard handbook “How to make a slot with an Oriental theme?”. All the usual symbols have been used: dragons, nuggets, drums, red cards and gold coins. The only symbol they have forgotten is the red lantern.
These Chinese symbols represent the premium symbols.
We will get back to you below, how the dragon works.
In the case you spin a 5-of-a-kind of any of the other premium symbols, you get a win of 10 x to 50 x the total bet. The “Ingots” (nuggets) are the most lucrative symbols, so keep a close eye on these.
The four card symbols (J, Q, K and A) pay much less and are the low symbols: 2.5 x to 5 x the bet for five identical symbols on a payline.
You may think that these wins are pretty high compared to most other slots. Remember, though, that there are only 10 paylines. You will soon find out that getting these combinations is not so easy with this slot.
Dragon Re-Spin Feature
We promised to get back to you to tell you how the dragon works.
The red dragon is wild and guarantees you a free re-spin if you manage to get a winning combination. The red dragon becomes sticky during the respin.
Potentially, you get new dragons in the respin (either green, blue or dark yellow dragons). These dragons cover an entire reel and are wild. Besides, these dragons have multipliers of x 1, x 2 or even x 3.
The wild dragons are very useful and increase your chances of a massive payout. Imagine getting dragons on the first 3 reels and some Chinese symbols on reels 4 and 5.
Every time you get a red dragon, a golden coin flies in a red/golden kettle.
The kettle gives access to the jackpot, which can be triggered at any time. Now you can win the Major Jackpot (100x the bet) or the Grand Jackpot (5,000x the stake).
Given these enormous prizes, you understand that it does not frequently happen that the jackpot is triggered and that in 99.9% of the cases, the Major Jackpot is paid out.
In the case you have played the maximum bet of $€25, simple maths tells you that the Grand Jackpot yields you a dream win of $€ 125,000.
Free Spins Bonus
But there is more.
Three scatters on the middle three reels get you a cash prize of 2 x the bet and 10 free spins.
During the free spins, all wilds that appear after a re-spin yield an x 3 multiplier.
It becomes highly lucrative, in particular, if you manage to spin two or three expanding wilds in a row.
Our verdict of the Long Mu Fortunes video slot
Fortune Factory has done some excellent work for Microgaming with this fantastic video slot.
The slot has some great features. The nudging wilds with extra multipliers have the potential for some massive payouts.
Long Mu Fortunes may look a bit old-fashioned, but you will soon find out that this slot has a lot to offer if you ignore that.
The slot has a medium to high variance, so there is plenty of room for some spectacular prizes.
4 out of 5 stars.
