Roaring Forties by Novomatic
One of our favourite fruit themed games from Novomatic is Plenty on Twenty and if the playing statistics here on the site are anything to go by then we’re not alone in holding that opinion. However, imagine if that concept was doubled in size. The result would be something along the lines of Roaring Forties. Just as Plenty on Twenty is named after the number of win lines, the same can be said about this game, so you’ve got a huge board to cast an eye over and plenty of different ways to put winning combinations together.
Stacked Symbols for Bigger Wins
What could be better than all of our favourite fruit symbols and a massive number of lines over which to put them together? Well, stacked symbols would definitely be a big bonus and they are exactly what Novomatic has delivered here. From the cherries at the bottom to the bells and 7s at the top of the pay table, every single symbol has been printed in such a way that it can fill an entire reel with no expansion required. The dream of a full board of lucky 7s and the 200,000 coin prize that accompanies it is alive and well, even if it’s rare to say the least!
Wins are made even easier with the inclusion of a wild card – a welcome addition on any fruit themed game, especially one with this many win lines. The only symbol that it’s unable to cover for is the star icon, which is the Roaring Forties scatter. There are no bonus rounds to aim for, so the only role of that symbol is to pay out regardless of the forty win lines that are in play. It’s not much of a compromise though, especially when you consider that just a single star on each of the five reels will pay out the top prize of a massive 100,000 coins!
Novomatic’s ability to take a concept as simple as the fruit based theme and come up with something original and innovative each and every time is nothing short of mesmerising. Plentiful lines, stacked symbols and a wild card are more than enough to allow Roaring Forties to stand out in the crowd and we have no qualms about recommending that you check this one out next time you head over to one of our recommended Novomatic partner brands!
