The Mesoamerican culture is the basis for the January 2019 video slot Fortune Spirits. Its developer Betixon has another Native America-inspired game, titled Golden Mayan (December 2018). Minimalistic lifestyle, nomadism, card values, totems, and tribal decorations are the themes in Fortune Spirits whose symbols require three, or four or five winning combinations.
Fortune Spirits Game Characteristics
Fortune Spirits has eleven tribal symbols, few free games, lowly win multiplier, low roller-oriented total bets, sticky roaming wilds, 25 fixed rightward pay lines, and between X4 and X600 regular wins.
Embedded on a patterned corn yellow fabric, the Fortune Spirits’ 5X3 grid is set under clear skies in a golden-lit Grand Canyon. The frameless grid’s margins are propped up by feathery bamboo spears, while its partitions have ethnic patterns. The grid is located in a stony nomad camp, between two small white pyramid tents, amid tufts of grass and cactus in an otherwise semi-arid area.
Fortune Spirits has seven total bets, at bottom right: $0.25 (minimum bet), $0.50, $1.25, $2.50, $6.25, $12.50, and $25.00 (maximum bet). Fortune Spirits has two special and nine ordinary symbols. Special symbols: the substitute is a feathery brown “wild” horse; and the colorful totem unlocks the free games.
Ordinary symbols: a smiling Native American elder in a colorful white-feathered headdress; a black-haired Native American woman in brown; white-dressed Native American woman in a clasp collier necklace; rabbit foot-embedded brown A; cow skull-embedded brown K; ax-embedded J; feathery brown Q; 9; and 10.
Here are the Fortune Spirits’ payouts.
Three 9 or 10 pay X4, four 9 or 10 pay X10, and five 9 or 10 pay X20.
Three J pay X6, four J pay X20, and five J pay X25.

Three horses pay X20, four horses pay X150, and five horses pay X600. Landing five horses after betting $25.00 may yield (25X600) a $15000.00 non-progressive jackpot.
When the “wild” horses are drawn on the second, third, fourth and fifth reels; they stick therein before, in the subsequent spin, being pushed to the reel on the left progressively. The migrating wilds boost the substituted winning chances. 3+ “scatter” totems unlock five wins-tripling free games.
Sounds: ambient tribal instrumental; and retro, clanging, swishing, jingling, and rattling effects. The minimally animated 3D graphics: glittering, dolly zooming, and nodding horse.
