Betsoft has delivered some of the coolest looking 3D games the industry has ever seen. You have probably come across Rise of Triton Hold & Win, Ogre Empire, Magic Shoppe, The Hive and From Rags to Witches to name a few.
Harry Potter Trauma
Magic is often part of the BetSoft themes and with their new release, Enchanted Forest of Fortune: Hold & Win, there’s a lot of it for players to enjoy. I mean, anytime you get a chance at an enchanted forest adventure, you better dive in headfirst regardless if you were traumatized by Harry Potter as a kid.
With Stacked Mystery Symbols, Free Spins, Exploding Reels and frequent Wilds, this game could be pure magic so let’s see if it can live up to our expectations.
It It Ain’t Broke, Don’t Fix It
Once again BetSoft delivers on the graphic because the game looks fantastic. There’s a mysterious vibe and the toned down colors and Harry Potter soundtrack really solidify it. There’s a lot going on here in exciting special effects with each feature and whenever you can smell a win.
All of the above ingredients mix well together and turn it into a captivating game to play.
Release Date: November 30, 2023
Features: Hold & Win, Stacked Mystery Symbols, Free Spins, Buy Feature
Stacked Mystery Symbols
One of the better looking features is the Stacked Mystery Symbol. On any given spin, you can see multiple reels covered in Mystery Symbols. At the end of the spin, these rocks will explode (see image above) and reveal the same symbol. With a bit of luck it can be exactly the symbol you need for a big win.
Hold & Win Feature
What I believe is the most appealing feature is the Hold & Win, which I’ve always been a fan of. What Betsoft has done in this game, I found more interesting than taking the normal route you see in most other Hold & Win games. Instead of moving you to another screen, this version kicks off right where you are.
Follow the Instructions on How to Win Big
It takes 6 or more glowing orb symbols to trigger the feature. The cash value of each symbol ranges from €0.20-€100. Whenever you’ve scored the needed symbols, get ready for some fun.
As per usual you get 3 respins to do what the sign says – collect as many orbs as possible to win big!
Reset the Count
Every time you land another orb, your spin count will reset to 3. As long as you keep finding more orbs, you can keep spinning until the cows come home. If you run out of spins, boom – it’s over!
Get Your Free Spins
If you can find 3 scatter symbols, you will trigger 10 Free Spins and the Bonus Round. The scatters can only appear on reels 1, 3 and 5, making it a little more challenging to score a bunch of them.
How to Win Even More Money
Not only can you retrigger your Free Spins for more action, the Hold & Win feature is in play during the Bonus Round as well. I wasn’t aware of it so it caught me a bit off guard when it happened.
Free Spins and/or Hold & Win Feature
As you can see, you will be able to put the Buy Feature if you’d like. When you do, you can pick which one of the bonus features you’d like to pursue.
- 10 Free Spins
- Hold & Win Feature
With the bet level set at €0.20, the price for Free Spins was €20 and €16 for Hold & Spin, which feels a bit steep.
Enchanted Forest of Fortune: Hold & Win – Pass or Play
It didn’t take long before I decided that this game is worth playing. Right away, you get swept up by the enchanted atmosphere and with all the effects, every spin becomes exciting.
The Hold & Win taking place immediately right there in the base game without any big interruption is clever and even the Mystery Symbol explosions contribute to enhancing the overall experience.
Nice one, BetSoft.
