Roll with the Chinese Gods: Microgaming's New Long Mu Fortunes SlotPublished November 10, 2019 by Mike P
Long Mu Fortunes is a mythical slot inspired by a Chinese goddess famed for raising five dragons. This is new from Fortune Factory and available at Microgaming casinos.
Microgaming casinos have received a wave of newly released video slots ever since the software provider established a roster of exclusive studios to develop content. One of the central names is Fortune Factory Studios, which is previously responsible for Romanov Riches and Village People: Macho Moves.
The latest addition from Fortune Factory is the Long Mu Fortunes slot, an experience that takes players to the Far East. The five-reel slot is created with 10 fixed paylines and adopts an autumnal colour palette of greens and oranges, all while playing out with a curiously mystical soundtrack.
Gameplay has been described as highly volatile, meaning that there is a chance for large wins to occur, but patience will be needed for them to trigger. Playing cards then serve the oft-expected role of basic symbols, with the oriental winnings reserved for higher winnings and more exciting outcomes.
Flying Red Dragons
One of the most striking symbols is the wild red dragon, as it carries the ability to become stacked up with other wild red dragons. Legend has it that these mythical beasts fall under the control of Long Mu, a Chinese goddess known for mothering five dragons.
Red dragons are able to land on the second or fourth reels before springing to life. This causes them to become a stacked wild and then stay locked in place while a re-spin is awarded. This is when nudging multiplier wild stacks start moving around the reels and awarding up to 3x multipliers, and delivering re-spins following any win.
The appearance of each red dragon also causes new coins to be added to one of the treasure pots above. With every coin added, the chance improves to possibly win either the 100x major jackpot or the 5000x grand jackpot. Finally, 10 free spins are triggered merely by landing three of the scatter symbols in view.
