During the second day of Ice 2018, on February 7th, 2018, Microgaming decided to use the opportunity to announce one of their upcoming slot machines, which is going to be called Fortunium. It’s going to be launched later in 2018 and it will be a 5x5 reels slot machine, with a steampunk theme, which will show off in front of the player a metropolis of abundance and prosperity, quite opulent based on the way it’s been described.
Graphics wise, Fortunium will showcase great skylines, using gorgeous graphics for the occasion. It’s going to be a place where entrepreneurs and innovators would want to be in, to gain fame and fortune. Some of the new features that will be implemented in Fortunium, include Stacked Mystery Symbols, the Mystery Reels, but also something called Win Booster, a device that increases your rewards.
The design of this slot is going to be optimized for use in portrait mode, making it perfect for a mobile device.
In order to celebrate this upcoming slot machine, Microgaming decided to dedicate the 2nd day of Ice 2018 to it, and to create an entire theme for their bar, which you can find at stand N5-120. The setup will be steampunk inspired, obviously, with various contraptions installed, along with golden gears and gadgets which have a retro-futuristic look.
It’s not just the visuals that will be a treat for Microgaming’s visitors. The bar will also offer its guests some delicious desserts, which are crafted with the help of an ice cream buggy that is using steam-powered nitrogen. The finest chefs in all of Fortunium are going to be present at the stand, to operate this marvelous contraption. Two recipes will be created for the occasion, a sorbet with gin and tonic, plus an ice cream with salted caramel whiskey.
David Reynolds, speaking for Microgaming, declared that this will be a stunning slot machine when it launches, which will use a unique theme along with great game mechanics, making it an immersive experience for players. The mobile market is the one that is the main target with this slot machine, since the game is fully optimized for use in portrait mode.
