The original story of the wooden puppet Pinocchio, whose nose lengthened if he told fibs, was written by Italian author Carlo Collodi in 1883.
Today you can have a crack at Pinocchio’s Fortune Slot, a 5 x 3 slot played within a charming wooden frame and produced by First Look Games with 2×2 Gaming, based on the famous fairytale. It has 30 unchangeable Paylines plus bouncy audio accompanying every spin.
With high-quality graphics, it’s set in the same location as the timeless classic yarn – an enchanted forest.
How to play
Standard symbols are pretty much all related to the theme and include a carving tool, golden key, coins, a cigar, pool ball, school books and wood-carver Geppetto’s house, where he also works, as well as that character himself. The uniform design gives all these emblems a consistent look.
Place your bet from just 0.30 a pop, rising to a hefty 90 per go – a wagering range meaning all levels and attitude to risk are catered for.
Commands for the game are all to be found below the reels, and you win by landing symbol combos on Paylines in the usual fashion.
Hit the green Play function to kick things off, and use Autoplay if you fancy sitting back to watch the reels turn automatically rather than whirling them manually.
Pinocchio’s Fortune Slot special features
The puppet himself serves as the Wild here, alongside a pair of Scatter icons – the fairy and a second, close-up image of Pinocchio, both of which have their own bonus features.
As ever, the Wild replaces all other regular symbols bar the Scatters to help you win big.
The fairy displays exclusively on the middle three reels, and you’ll need to land her in triplicate to kick off the Find Geppetto round described below.
Initiate this as described above. It’s essentially a board game, for which you get a quartet of spins in a bid to move as far along a path as you can. En route, goodies including further spins and extra rewards like multipliers are all up for grabs.
Make it to the last square to scoop the grand prize.
Pinocchio Nose round
You nose it makes sense!
Land between three and five of the Pinocchio Scatters wherever you like on the reels to be in line for a respective eight, 10 or 16 wager-free whirls.
As you play, every Scatter rocking up on the reels expands Pinocchio’s hooter a tad more, each time leading to a toy box pick and further potential prizes.
Some positions on the lowest three reels (i.e. 3 to 5) have a mini-puppet overlay symbol. Get three of these to launch this feature.
Choose one of two toy boxes, to reveal cash prizes or the chance to turn a reel fully Wild and enjoy a respin.
Pinocchio’s Fortune Slot doesn’t feature a progressive jackpot. However, you can win 1,000 coins for landing five Wilds on a single Payline.
Return to Player (RTP)
RTP or Return to Player is around 95% here, so slightly below the norm.
We’d definitely suggest giving Pinocchio’s Fortune Slot a go. With plenty of features, it offers light-hearted fun while staying faithful to the original enchanting story.
And we think you’re never too old for a friendly slot with a fairytale theme and nostalgic, feel-good vibes! Equally, it will suit novice and more experienced players alike. Additionally, the visuals are all beautifully detailed.
Give it a go (in free demo first of all) and tell us what you thought. It’s a great game – and that’s no word of a lie!
