In the olden days when slots first became a popular form of entertainment, there was only one style of slot machine. These were also called one armed bandits or fruit machines. They had only three reels and one pay line, sometimes a few more. Bell of Fortune is an online and mobile slot in the same format as the olden days fruit machines. The game has a total of one pay line and three reels. The coin value is set at 0.25 and you have choice of one, two or three coins per spin. This is not a game with many options, and it will only appeal to a very small percentage of the market.
Mobile or Online
Bell of Fortune is available on both the mobile and online platform. Due to the very basic graphics the game runs smoothly on a smaller screen and on a device with slightly smaller processing power. It can be found in the app store of either iOS or Android devices. Bell of Fortune can also be played for both real and free money. Free money versions of the game do not give you access to the progressive jackpot however and are played only for fun, or for practice. Like options to access online sports betting Australia, Bell of Fortune can be played both in your browser as well as via a downloadable client.
Fruit Machine Layout
Bell of Fortune is designed to look like a physical fruit machine that is found in a brick and mortar casino. This is done by setting the three spinning reels to the left of the paytable, and laying out the three buttons at the bottom in a 3D manner to look like the whole thing is set in a case. Bet Max, Spin and Auto play are the only buttons that you can play with during the game. The fruits themselves are well drawn, with crisp outlines which does give the game a modern feel despite its classic theme. The sounds are very typical of an old school slot machine. Various beeps and boops can be heard in the background, and the sound of falling coins accompanies a decent win.
Of course the symbols in Bell of Fortune are fruits, as this is an old school fruit machine. The classic plums, oranges and strawberries all pay out for three in a row. Due to the limited symbols, a combination of all three will also payout for three on the single payline.
The golden bell is the game one special feature. This acts as a wild symbol and can replace all of the fruits. It will also pay out for one or two of them on the single payline.
Bell of Fortune does in fact have a progressive jackpot, which is a bit of a rarity amongst old school fruit machines. This jackpot can only be won if you are playing with the maxim number of three coins per spin. The progressive jackpot is shown above the reels, and counts up all the time.
