Pinocchio’s Fortune is a slot game adaptation of Pinocchio; this is the name of a fictitious wooden puppet and major character—its nose enlarges whenever it lies—in Carlo Collodi’s 1883 book “The Adventures of Pinocchio”. Apart from the Fairy with Turquoise Hair that lacks regular payouts, the other eleven symbols require three, four, or five winning combinations.
