Blue Fortune Verdict
Blue Fortune seems to be a Pirates of the Caribbean-inspired underwater pirate slot. The Kraken plays a key role in the re-spin feature, which can land you decent wins in the base game and great wins in the bonus round. Don’t expect features that will break the status-quo in video slots, but a well-crafted and executed slot in an original enough theme.
Editor’s discretion: 12/20
You should play Blue Fortune if: you love mystical underwater pirates and re-spins.

Theme and Atmosphere
The theme isn’t new; we’ve seen the Kraken before, and nothing else truly stands out in the graphics or theme. Everything works together to create a recognizable atmosphere that keeps you afloat for a while.
Gameplay and bonuses
The re-spin is at the heart of this slot. This re-spin feature locks symbols from a winning combination and introduces new symbols for the other positions. Each extra symbol gives you an additional (compounding) win and another respin. When no new applicable symbols appear, the re-spin stops, your last win is repeated, and all wins are added up.
Each bonus symbol that appears adds to the meter on the left. When you’ve found three in total, they unlock the bonus round with ten free spins. During these spins, only high-value symbols come by, giving you an additional chance for big wins.
The math works well. According to Quickspin, Blue Fortune has a high volatility, but only when you compare it to other Quickspin slots. The re-spin feature ensures a decent win every once in a while, and the bonus doesn’t take forever to unlock. Especially the bonus can be very volatile. A small downside is the relatively low maximum win of 3,111x.
In my test run, I managed a 300x win after a successful bonus round (seen in the screenshot above). According to Quickspin’s details, that’s pretty rare, though.
Blue Fortune is fine. It’s well-made, but doesn’t have the x-factor.
Pirate’s Plenty Megaways is a pirate slot with more potential and that x-factor. We’ve discussed a Kraken monsterslot from Thunderkick before which is an alternative, but not worth the detour.
