While humans also enjoy organizing a picnic, the food quickly turns into a real feast for the ants when left unattended. Adorable little animals have stumbled upon a genuine picnic party and no wonder this has become a small fortune for them. Watch the ants go crazy on picnic baskets and any food they can get their hands on, but also try and restore some order on the reels to ensure there are some prizes to be won as well.
Rolled out in September 2013, Small Fortune is a 5 reel 25 payline slot game that shows us how the ants see a picnic party outdoors. Make sure you are not hungry when you play this video slot as there will be some mouth-watering symbols populating the reels and forming winning combinations. When it comes to special features, these include scatter payouts, Free Games and two progressive jackpots.
Play Small Fortune
While two ants and a girl are there to boost your line wins and unlock bonus rounds, regular game symbols are represented by picnic basket, pie, club sandwich, watermelon slice, half eaten apple, butterfly on a flower, blanket, bottle, cheese, glass and salad. The object is to receive at least two matching symbols on an active payline, with Girl Scatters the only icons awarding payouts regardless of the position on the reels.
How to play
Just like most RTG slots developed in the second part of 2013, Small Fortune is played at one coin per payline, with coin value and number of paylines ranging from $0.01 to 1 and 1 to 25 respectively. Autoplay option is supported.
Two Ant symbols act as Wilds and they appear grouped on reels 1 and 5, substituting for all game icons with the exception of Girl Scatters.
Three, four and five Girl icons scattered anywhere on the reels award Scatter payouts, multiplying your bet 2, 20 and 250 times respectively.
Strategy & Tips
Get the two ant symbols to occur on reels 1 and 5, and at least one picnic basket on reels 2, 3 or 4 to unlock the Free Games round.
You will be awarded five free games for each basket, with each ant that has triggered the feature carrying a 1x multiplier. This means you can get up to 45 free spins and up to 6x multipliers.
Maximum coin jackpot for this particular video slot is 1,250 coins, and it is awarded when five pie icons appear on an active payline.
There are two progressive jackpot linked to the Small Fortune video slot and both of these can occur randomly at the conclusion of any game. And while the Minor Jackpot amount rarely goes above $1,000, the Major Jackpot has been known to award a few thousand dollars.
