Mobile casino solutions supplier Microgaming has revealed a brand new game that is set to launch at its partners’ casino platforms soon. The new Fortunium mobile slot has been inspired by the trendy Steampunk movement, and boasts an array of innovative features and fantastic graphics for a wild Victorian-style adventure.
The game whisks players away to a city filled with gold and riches, where all the wealthiest individuals in the world embark on missions to seek exciting hidden treasures. Packed full of wheels, cogs and other items endemic to the Steampunk style, the setting for Fortunium is a vast blue skyline and a city skyscape filled with towering Victorian buildings.
It is against this backdrop that the reels of the slot are set, containing a range of character symbols and playing card icons accessorised with cogs, clocks and bolts. Immersive animations will bring the characters and other symbols to life whenever a winning combination lands, and a Victorian gentleman in appropriately old-timey dress also stands beside the reels to cheer players on.
The Fortunium mobile slot does not yet have an official release date, according to Microgaming spokespeople. However, the pilot version of the new game was revealed at ICE Totally Gaming 2018 in London earlier in February, stirring up plenty of attention from the event’s many guests.
Microgaming is well known for packing its slots full of bonus features and resources to deliver exceptional entertainment, and Fortunium will no doubt offer the same excitement that players have come to expect from the developer.
The game spins out over a 5x5 reel set that has been designed specifically for a smooth mobile experience, offering responsive portrait mode play across iOS and other operating systems.
Microgaming has also revealed that the Steampunk-themed slot will boast Mystery Reels, stacked Mystery Symbols, and an innovative Win Booster bonus system to add extra value for real money punters.
According to Microgaming Games Publisher David Reynolds, Fortunium is an attractive new slot that combines a unique genre with action-packed game mechanics that will engage players on a whole new level. According to Reynolds, the slot has been developed with mobile players in mind, and is fully optimized for both landscape and portrait gameplay across Android, iOS and Windows Mobile devices.
The release date for Microgaming’s Fortunium mobile slot will be confirmed soon, although iGaming experts are expecting it to land at Microgaming mobile casinos in Q2 this year.
