New 5 Line Fortune Pokie Is A Retro RevolutionPopular iGaming developer Novomatic Greentube have once again decided to buck the norm, releasing a pokie that defies expectations in almost every regard. The game in question is 5 Line Fortune, and from its visuals to its gameplay there is something new and interesting being put into play.

A cursory glance reveals classic fruit symbols, which in itself is not a design choice that is as unusual as it once was. However, a closer look unveils that the fruit symbols in this game are brought to life in the most interesting visual way. Each looks as if it is printed onto a glossy plastic surface, suggesting that the online game exists in a real, old school, land based casino.

The visual detail, although simple, adds a dose of creativity that is certainly welcome as far as retro themed pokies go. All in all, it is visual design that helps 5 Line Fortune stand apart in a genre that is quickly becoming saturated.

Base Gameplay

As with most retro themed games, 5 Line Fortune is all about capturing the simplicity of old school design. A 3-reel, 3 row grid is utilised, stripping away the majority of other clutter so often seen in contemporary pokies. Add to this already streamlined design just 5 paylines and, without question, we have one of the more streamlined titles to come along in some time.

But, just because simplicity is the name of the game, it doesn’t’ mean that Novomatic Greentube haven’t still hit a home run. The highly popular Wheel Of Fortune bonus game has been injected into the gameplay, offering some nail-biting action in an otherwise relaxing experience. Speaking of which, there is nothing retro about the highest payout amounts either.

The Wheel Of Payouts

Upon 3 Fortune symbols landing on the reels, players are presented with the Wheel Of Fortune. As would be expected, a spin of the wheel is granted, with a vast range of instant payouts and other prizes up for grabs.

First, if a Green prize is won, an instant second spin of the wheel is granted.

However, players will be most interested in the biggest possible payouts. The Major and Grand prizes are the biggest in the game, and enough to make any pokie enthusiast jump up and dance a jig.

5 Line Fortune is another interesting, engaging entry from Novomatic Greentube, and further proof that there is still a great deal of fun to be had in the world of retro pokies.
