Bally releases Fortunes of the Deep – Pacific
September 23, 2010
One of the premier games on Bally’s sleek and modern new ALPHA 2 Pro V22/22 Upright and V22/26 Slant platforms, Fortunes of the Deep – Pacific immerses players an exciting undersea adventure in search of bountiful riches.
This five-reel, 40-line video slot features a 400-credit max bet, plus configurable lines and credits. It is also multi-denom, with denominations ranging from one cent up to $1,000.
One of the signature bonus events featured in Fortunes of the Deep – Pacific is its enchanting Treasure Chest Bonus. This bonus is triggered if four or more Treasure Chest symbols appear on the reels. Players are then prompted to select multiple Treasure Chest reel symbols by touching the screen. The resulting bonus credits won vary with the number of symbols displayed. Four symbols award from four to 16 credits multiplied by total credits bet. Five symbols award from 20 to 80 credits multiplied by total credits bet. Additionally, players can also be awarded Free Spins, which are played at the same bet and number of lines as the triggered game.
The other key feature of this game is the Fortunes of the Deep Bonus, which awards bonus credits based on the number of scattered Fortunes of the Deep symbols that appear. Three such symbols award twice the total bet. Four symbols award 12 times the total bet. And five symbols award 50 times the total bet. During this bonus, a rotating “sonar” display appears on the left side of the screen and searches for up to two treasure bonuses. Three reels on the left start spinning automatically and the treasures that appear on the reels after spinning will fill in the treasures to the right of the reels. Once three of any symbols have been obtained, an amount is awarded that is associated with that treasure, which is then multiplied by the total bet. When a Shark symbol appears on reel, it makes that reel inactive. Players win the other two treasures that appear on the reel with the Shark symbol. This bonus ends when either a Shark symbol inactivates all three reels or after 152 bonus spins.
The game’s top award is 2,500 credits times max bet per line, which is triggered by five jackpot symbols on an active payline in the base game. Companion titles include Fortunes of the Deep – Atlantic, Caribbean, and Mediterranean.
