Game Rules

Fortunes of the Fox

5-Reel, 25-Line SlotBonfire Free Games and Lucky Grapes Bonus

The main objective when playing Fortunes of the Fox online casino slot is to match symbols on active paylines to earn cash payouts. There are also some Bonus Features that can help boost your winnings.

How to Play:

  • Start by choosing your Line Bet, using the +/- buttons on the bottom of the screen.
  • Then choose the paylines using the +/- buttons underneath the Lines Box. You can also select paylines by clicking on one of the numbered buttons on the sides of the reels. Please note clicking on a number in this manner activates all paylines numerically below it. For example, choosing ‘20’ will also activate paylines 1-19. The Total Bet is calculated as Line Bet x Number of Paylines.
  • When you have selected your bets and paylines, click on the spin button to spin the reels and start the game. You can also spin the reels by using the Bet Max button; this will play the game at the maximum number of paylines for your chosen Line Bet.
  • You can set a predetermined number of spins to be played through consecutively using Auto Play Mode. Click on the Auto Play button and choose from 10, 25, 50 or 99 Auto Spins. These will play automatically without your input, only stopping if you are awarded a Bonus feature or click on Stop.
  • Playing the game in Turbo Mode will speed up animations for faster results.
  • Whenever a winning spin occurs, it will be clearly highlighted on screen and the amount won displayed in the Win Field.
  • All winning combinations and their values are displayed on the Paytable, which can be accessed via the Info button on the bottom left of the screen.

Info Pages:

Clicking Info opens the Fortunes of the Fox Info Pages. You can move through the different pages using the arrows on the bottom right of the screen. To return to the reels, click on the Back button. The Info Pages are as follows:

Paytable – gives information on all payouts for winning combinations.

Bonfire Free Games – describes the Free Games Bonus.

Lucky Grapes Bonus – describes the Lucky Grapes Bonus.

Paylines – shows where the paylines appear on the reels.


Paylines are the pathways that matching symbols must follow across the reels to achieve Line Wins. These must be in an unbroken chain of three or more symbols beginning on Reel 1.

Only active paylines, i.e. the ones that you bet on, can record Line Wins.

There is a difference between the Line Bet and the Total Bet. The former is the bet on each individual payline, whereas the latter is the accumulative amount bet on all active paylines.

About Payouts:

All possible payouts are displayed on the Paytable screen. To calculate the value of a Line Win, multiply the relevant figure by the Line Bet.

Only the highest win is paid on each payline. Multiple wins can occur on different paylines; these are added together and paid as a total win.

Wild Symbol:

The Wild Symbol appears on Reels 2, 3 and 4 only. It can substitute for all other standard symbols to help form winning combinations.

Three Wild Symbols appearing simultaneously on the reels will activate the Free Games Bonus, which is explained in greater detail in a section below.

Scatter Symbol:

The Scatter Symbol does not need to appear on a payline to be considered active. If you land two or more Scatter Symbols anywhere on the reels, you will win a cash amount. To calculate this payout, multiply the figure shown on the Paytable by the Total Bet.

Lucky Grapes Bonus:

If you land three Scatter Symbols anywhere on the reels you will be awarded the Lucky Grapes Bonus:

  • A new screen will be launched. The objective is to help Foxy snatch one of the six bunches of grapes from the tree.
  • Click on a bunch of grapes and watch Foxy jump to collect them. Each successful jump will award a cash amount. Foxy will jump no more than six times. If Foxy does not make six successful jumps you will be awarded a consolation prize as well.

Bonfire Free Games:

If you land three Wild Symbols anywhere on the reels you will be awarded Bonfire Free Games. When this occurs:

  • Press Click to Start to begin Bonfire Free Games.
  • You will be awarded 15 Free Games. These will be played through automatically.
  • All standard wins gained during Free Games are tripled.
  • The Lucky Grapes Bonus is active during Free Games, but the winnings are not subject to the 3x Multiplier.
  • The current amount won in Free Games will be displayed in the Free Games Win Field.
  • An extra 15 Free Games can be won in the same manner as the base game. This can occur an infinite amount of times.
  • The Free Games Bonus will end when all spins have been played through.

Please note: Free Games will be played at the same Line Bet and number of paylines as the triggering spin.

Return to Player:

The theoretical RTP (Return to Player) is 95.11%. This is based on long term average returns and not a guarantee for a single session.
