The aim of playing Fields of Fortune online slot is to spin the reels and match symbols on the paylines. The game also features a Free Games Bonus and Expanding Wild Symbols. This is a popular online slot, one that should be a big hit with players of online roulette, blackjack and other casino games.
When the game loads, a welcome screen will appear displaying information on some of the game’s special features. Check Don’t Show Next Time if you wish to skip this screen the next time you load the game.

How to Play:
Note: Fields of Fortune is played with 25 fixed paylines. The Total Bet is calculated as Line Bet x 25.
Note: Winning combinations of symbols will be highlighted after a spin has been completed. The total amount won will be shown in the Win Field.
Note: All payout information can be found on the Paytable, which is accessed via the Info button on the bottom left of the screen. All payouts are multiplied by the Line Bet.
Feature Bet is an extra wager that can be made in exchange for playing with Power Scatter Symbols. This means that these symbols will be active in the game, even if they fall on the rows directly above and below the main reels. In theory, this should ensure there is a greater likelihood of being awarded the Free Games Bonus. More information on the rules and awarding of Free Games can be found in a later section.
Select the Info button to access the reference pages, which includes the Paytable and information on special features. Use the scroll to move down the pages. Press X if you wish to exit the Info Pages and go back to the reels. The Info Pages are described below:

Fields of Fortune is played with 25 fixed paylines. These are the directions that matching symbols must follow from left to right across the reels to achieve Line Wins.
Please be aware of the difference between the Line Bet and the Total Bet. The Line Bet is the amount staked on each of the 25 paylines. It is used to calculate Line Wins. The Total Bet is equal to the Line Bet x 25. This is the amount that it costs to play a spin on Fields of Fortune.
A complete listing of payouts for the slot are found on the Paytable. The figures for winning combinations are multiplied by the Line Bet.
All winning combinations must form a chain of matching symbols on a payline. The chain must begin on Reel 1, moving from left to right across the reels.
Only the highest value winning combination will be paid out on each payline. Wins on different paylines are added up and paid out as a total win.
The Wild Symbols can substitute for all other symbols to make the best paying winning combination on a payline. In addition, if a winning combination is possible the Wild Symbol(s) will expand to fill the entire reel.
Scatter Symbols can be active even if they do not fall on the paylines. If three or more Scatter Symbols fall on any positon on the reels after a spin, you will be awarded Free Games. If you are playing with Feature Bet, you will be awarded Free Games if three or more Scatter Symbols fall anywhere on the reels and the rows directly above and below the reels.
When Free Games have been awarded, a new screen will be launched offering you the choice of Carrot Spins or Parsnip Spins.
Press Continue after you have made your selection.
Parsnip Spins will begin playing through automatically. Wins are added up after each spin and displayed as a total on the bottom right of the screen.
Whenever a Scatter Symbol falls on Reel 5, it will change one of the higher value symbols into a Wild Symbol for the remainder of Free Games. A total of three Extra Wild Symbols will be added to the reels throughout Parsnip Spins. Free Games will end after a Scatter Symbol has landed on Reel 5 for a fourth time.
The Symbols will change to Wild Symbols in the following order:
Scatter Symbol on Reel 5:
Dandelion becomes Extra Wild
Snap Dragon becomes Extra Wild
Venus Fly Trap becomes Extra Wild
Free Games ends.
Carrot Spins will start playing through automatically. Wins are added up after each spin and displayed on the bottom right of the screen.
Whenever a Scatter Symbol falls on Reel 5, it will increase the Wild Multiplier. This means that any payouts involving a Wild Symbol will be doubled, tripled and so on. The Wild Multiplier can reach x5 during Carrot Spins. Free Games will end after a Scatter Symbol has landed on Reel 5 for a fourth time.
The Multiplier will increase during Carrot Spins in the following order:
Scatter Symbol on Reel 5:
Wild Multiplier increases to x2
Wild Multiplier increases to x3
Wild Multiplier increases to x5
Free Games ends.
