Artefacts Vault of Fortune from Yggdrasil is a heist-themed slot — nothing new, but Yggdrasil has a way of making even the most-used themes seem fresh. The grid is set against a room filled with unfathomable riches, including a genie’s lamp and the original Girl with a Pearl Earring painting. If players can tear their eyes away from the treasures, they will get to enjoy an assortment of features, including the Dropdown feature, win multipliers, expanding wilds, and a Free Spins round during which the max win of 11,000x the stake can be won.
Vault of Fortune is a 5-reel, 20-payline slot set against a backdrop of a room that includes immensely valuable items. The soundtrack implies tiptoeing, a wonderful touch. Bets range from $.10 to $100 per spin, the RTP is 96.2%, and there is a 19.4% hit rate, making this a medium/highly volatile slot.
When 3 or more of the same symbols land in a row, a win is scored and the Dropdown feature is triggered. In this feature, the winning symbols are crushed to smithereens, and they make way for new symbols to drop down into the empty spaces. Each Dropdown increases the win multiplier by 1, and there is no limit to how high it can go.
Symbols include 4 lower-paying bejeweled card suit necklaces and 4 higher-paying treasures, including a vase, cat, egg, and crown. The crown is the highest-paying symbol, rewarding 25x the stake for 5 of a kind.
There is also a wild symbol that appears like a lever — if a wild is used to create a winning combination, the level drops and the wild expands to become a stack of 6 vertical wilds.
When 3, 4, or 5 scatters land, the Free Spins round is triggered and 8, 12, or 20 free spins are awarded, respectively. The win multiplier from the base game gets carried over into the Free Spins round, and the value does not reset between free spins. The multiplier can increase with no limits, and the Free Spins round can be retriggered.
Players who are looking for innovative gameplay and themes won’t find it in Artefacts Vault of Fortune, but they will find a slot that has solid features in both the base game and bonus round, excellent graphics, and high win potential. Vault of Fortune can be played at Yggrasil casinos, online and on mobile.
