Ever since Pirates of the Caribbean appeared on the screen, people have had an unsatisfiable craving for everything pirate-related. It’s understandable, an adventure in the open seas, searching for treasures and legends alike. Quickspin have taken the reigns in creating a new pirate slot. Blue Fortune visits the depths of the sea, which are unexplored even to this day. Vile sea monsters and sunken ships have made this place their home. Dive down below and find who inhabits these places. Search carefully and you might stumble upon some treasures worth 3,111x. We got no time to waste matey.
Blue Fortune is built on the basis of Northern Sky. If you played slots back in 2018, then you know that Northern Sky was a pretty big deal. It was a beautiful slot, but more importantly, the mechanisms of it have made their home in Blue Fortune. For those who haven’t had the experience, this is good news, because it made Northern Sky stand out. It’s been more than two years now, so we’ve seen plenty of innovation, so we will have to see if Blue Fortune will be desired by the current market. The playing field has been set, now it’s time to dig in.

Gameplay and Payouts
Blue Fortune shows a different side. It’s not a slot about pirate battles or any other surface adventure. It’s about what dwells down beneath the waves. The game is located at the bottom of the sea. We can see a shipwreck, seaweeds and most notably the giant octopus which is staring us down. The 5x3 game layout has no visual boundaries between the reels, so symbols seemingly float in the air, in this case, the water. The music and ambient sounds for Blue Fortune are great, they set a very fitting atmosphere. The whole presentation is seemingly playful, but it has a sinister feel to it. This is mostly thanks to the game symbols.
The Blue Fortune symbols definitely set a spooky undertone. First of all, Blue Fortune is a 9 line slot. In total there are just 7 regular symbols, but that’s all we need. Low symbols are 3 creepy looking skulls, while high symbols are notorious pirates, who now have assumed an undead form. Beginning with the lowest value we got Salty, Pegleg, Scarlet and Roger. These ghost pirates seem to have no jokes in mind, so be on your guard. Unfortunately, there are no wild symbols on Blue Fortune.
As we said, Blue Fortune is built on where Northern Sky once stood, so all the payout stats are pretty much identical too. It’s a high volatility slot with an RTP of 96.57%. The max payout can reach up to 3,111x, which, although, not huge, is still a great win. Quickspin have optimized Blue Fortune for all devices, so expect it to run the same or better than Northern Sky. Bet Range is 0.10 – 100 EUR/GBP/USD.
The main action and attraction is the Respin Feature. This Blue Fortune bonus feature is activate during the main and Free Spins phase. Any winning combination will trigger this feature. Once it’s active, the octopus will wrap around all the winning symbols, while the non-winning symbols will be replaced with new ones on the respin. If new symbols of the same type land, then they too are locked in, while another respin commences in the same fashion. Respins continue until there are no new wins to be made.
Blue Fortune Free Spins take the Respin Feature and elevate it to the next level. First of all, you will need 3 scatters to gain access to 10 Free Spins. The scatters can be obtained with the help of respins, so you don’t necessarily need to land all 3 at once. During these Free Spins, all the low skull symbols are removed, so only the pirates take place in the Respin Feature.
Northern Sky was already a beautiful slot, so visually, it didn’t require a remake. Essentially Blue Fortune provides the same experience with a different look. It’s not worse or it’s not better, it’s just different, but in general, we see this as a positive release from Quickspin. Northern Sky was a great game, but players were beginning to forget it, so Blue Fortune revives the soul of it. It’s an interesting pirate/ghost ship presentation. The gameplay, thanks to the respins is fun and even the main game can be full of surprises. Blue Fortune is a perfect slot for casual players, who are looking for something simple but highly enjoyable.
