Big Scary Fortune Slot Game Background
Big Scary Fortune continues a trend by Inspired Gaming regarding the evolution of the Free Spins feature found in their Big series of slot games, so slots such as Big Bonus through slots like Big Spin Bonus. Unlike slots that issue a fixed number of free spins and a limited number of possible re-triggers (whether a payout is achieved or not), the Free Spins feature in slots like Big Scary Fortune can potentially trigger an unlimited number of spins until a bonus is collected.
Big Scary Fortune Slot Game Design
Like all the slots in Inspired Gaming’s Big series, Big Scary Fortune is a 5-reel, 3-row online slot game with an average of 10 paylines and a potential maximum payout of 2,500x the stake.
The action occurs in a creepy forest in the dead of night. A bright full moon looks down at twisted trees through which snakes a frozen lake. Meanwhile, a haunted house sits atop a hill overlooking a graveyard. The game grid - encased in a thin blue frame - dominates the centre of the screen. The game logo sits above this. The reels are transparent; this allows players to see the twisted landscape behind them. So far so typically horror-themed. However, Big Scary Fortune doesn’t take itself too seriously. This is exemplified most clearly by the slot’s symbols, which are both colourful and stylised.
Big Scary Fortune also boasts an immersive audio presentation whether you’re spinning the reels. When not doing so, you get a suitably creepy and mysterious score punctuated by subtle wailing and lamenting chants alongside other ambient sounds like crickets chirping, distant wolf howls and even the wind itself. Spin the reels and you get bell-tolling sounds and a soundtrack that wouldn’t look out of place in a certain auteur’s filmography.

Big Scary Fortune Slot Bonus Features
Let’s take a look at the Big Scary Fortune slot’s bonus features!
Match 3 Game
Part of the Big Scary Fortune bonus round, the Match 3 game determines the value of the bonus Big Pumpkin used in the said bonus round. It’s played on a separate screen from the base game.
The game starts with either 6, 9, or 12 identical tiles. This depends on the number of Bonus symbols that triggered the feature. The tiles take the form of bubbling witch’s cauldrons.
Selecting a tile reveals a Big Pumpkin symbol with a cash value on it. The idea is to find two other identical Big Pumpkin symbols with the same cash value. Once you do, that symbol becomes your Sticky Big Pumpkin symbol during the Big Scary Fortune bonus round.
Big Scary Fortune Bonus Round
The bonus round proper begins after the Match 3 game. Players have an unlimited number of Free Spins until the Big Pumpkin symbol is caught.
The scarecrow appears on the reels during the bonus round. Should he land alongside pumpkin symbols, the cash values of which are collected and paid. Should more than one scarecrow make an appearance, the cash values of the pumpkin symbols are collected and paid multiple times, depending on the number of scarecrows in view.
Any Big Pumpkin symbols that land during the bonus game lock into place until a scarecrow comes along. The cash values of all the pumpkin (Big Pumpkin and normal pumpkin symbols) are collected and paid. The bonus round then ends.
Should all 15 squares be occupied by the Big Pumpkin sticky symbol, the values of all the symbols are collected and paid. The bonus round then ends.
