A gem in the genre, Fame and Fortune Slots is a game that clearly understands why we are all obsessed with these games and keep coming back for more. Using that as the central theme of the game, everything about this slot exudes class and will make you feel like you yourself could be living the good life if you play a lot. Nothing about it is particularly new, but it is well done enough to make it endearing and fun for players of all stripes. We thoroughly recommend you give it a try if the titular themes are at all on your priorities list in life.
Much like it sounds, Fame and Fortune Slots is about hitting it big and living a life far outside the means of the average person. Everything about it reflects this, and makes you feel like you are a star sitting somewhere high up biding your time as the money keeps rolling in. It is a well chosen and fitting theme for a slot, and while not in any way too unique, it really captures what all the rest of them are going for when they true going this route.
It all looks great. The graphics here are very glamorized and high class, and manage to never feel gaudy, which is what usually happens when games do that. Classy suits of cards and cars both look like they are cleanly rendered with high production values, and even the surrounding area contributes to the theme. Hollywood backgrounds and entrapping rounds it all out. If we could describe it in one word, that would be: classy.
Despite being about fame and fortune, Fame and Fortune Slots is still a 5 reel slot with 20 play lines. This goes further than it otherwise would in most games thanks to free spins and the wild card symbols, but it is still about what you are used to if you are used to playing a lot of these games.
As far as matching goes, standard suits of cards, along with the Hollywood hills sign, the glamorous girl on the cover, and related things like classic cars and diamonds round out the affair here. Fame and Fortune symbols, as you would expect, are the uber draw, and what you will usually be shooting for.
You can bet between a cent and $100 per spin, which makes this game appeal well to people that are a little timid about betting, or would likely to go all in and hit it big. A progressive jackpot feature also makes an appearance, which is a welcome addition to a game like this, and something we here are personally big fans of any time we see one. Someone should really make Progressive Jackpot Slots, we would be all in on that.
