This is a Kung Fu-themed slot from NertEnt with two warriors playing the main characters. The features include Wild reels, syncing of reels in couples and free spins. It is simple to play and very fast-paced.
Using a peculiar layout for the grid, NetEnt released the slot in November 2019. If you are into Asian slots with plain gameplay, you are bound to like Fortune rangers. Its low volatility makes it suitable for casual players and newbies.
The game uses a grid of consecutively increasing number of rows per reel. It starts with 3 symbols on the 1st and 2nd reel, 4 symbols on the 3rd and 4th reels and 5 symbols on the 5th reel. You will win from 76 fixed pay-lines. Fortune Rangers has low volatility and an RTP of 96.90%. Players can choose wagers from as little as 0.20 up to 200 credits to spin the reels.
You will win from a random feature in the base game – the Lucky Wild Reels. It can turn between 1 and 5 reels covered with wild symbols only. The Free Spins can give you from 8 to 16 rounds. During them, reels 1 to 4 can be synced and display identical symbols – a mirror of the reel next to each in couples. The jackpot in the slot is a 760x stake or £152,000.
The game uses an unusual layout of 3-3-4-4-5 in Kung Fu style. The reels are mahogany and around them, you will see lanterns on both sides. Over the reels is the game logo with a golden dragon around it.
On the reels can appear golden ingots, fans, Yin-Yang symbols, ancient Chinese scrolls. There are also 3 tied golden coins and 2 characters: a male and a female fortune ranger. The soundtrack is intense and Chinese with string instruments.
The 3-3-4-4-5 format using slot has 6 standard symbols, a scatter and a wild. The 4 low-value ones are an Asian fan, an ancient scroll, a trio of tied Chinese lucky coins and 3 golden ingots. Their payouts are from 1 to 1.5 times your bet for 5 of a kind.
The premiums are a female and a male fortune ranger that pay 5 and 10 times your bet for 5 matching symbols on a pay-line. The golden dragon is the wild and it substitutes for all missing symbols except for the scatter.
A random feature can activate in the base game – this is the Lucky Wild Reels. Then, between 1 and 5 reels can turn into fully wild reels.
Landing 3 to 5 scatters of the Yin-Yang in one spin activates the respective number of free spins as follows:
You cannot re-trigger free spins, but while they play you can randomly activate the Linked Reels feature. At the start of any free spin, identical linked reels can appear adjacently. This is possible for any of reels 1 to 4 where the right reel becomes a copy of the left one. You can have reel 1 linked to (a copy of) reel 2 and/or reel 3 linked to reel 4. Thus you can land identical symbols and form plenty of wins.
NeEnt released a straightforward yet pleasant game with the Kung Fu theme. A full screen of one of the two warriors who can give you the top win of 760x stake. This happens when you cover the reels with the best-paying symbol. It is not that hard thanks to the Linked Reels feature in free spins and the Lucky Wild Reels in the base game. They add more wilds and sync adjacent reels two by two.
