Shine on, you crazy fortune!
Wow. This one left us reeling! It’s as jam-packed and psychedelic as a Pink Floyd video, as exciting as a Mardi Gras parade, and as full of riches as Smaug’s hoard. There’s a lot going on with this game, so buckle up, because it’s going to take you places.
Not only does this game look great, you get to customise the living daylights out of it. The elegant embossed red-and-gold background serves as a luxurious setting for the beautifully painted symbols, while the soothing classical Asian music creates a magical atmosphere. If you’re not into the music, however, you can turn it off, along with the special sound effects. But the customisation only begins there.
You can choose from full-screen or big-screen mode, turn the energy saver on or off, select whether or not to see the Big Win presentation, and choose between advanced/unique gambling and standard/card gambling.
This game is an orgy of delights. To begin, the game is played on 16 independent reels on a 4×4 grid with 0 (yes, that’s a zero) paylines. Yes, you heard it here first! This game gives zero figs about paylines. Instead, you start to win whenever there are 8 or more of the same symbol anywhere on the grid – they don’t have to be near each other, or in any kind of order.
The standard symbols, of which there are 8, are beautifully rendered and flower-bedecked J, Q, K, and A, golden fish, magical dragon-turtle, phoenix and Chinese dragon. The Chinese dragon is the highest paying symbol, while the J is the lowest. We strongly advise checking out the pay tables for these symbols, because they are lengthy and extensive. To summarise, however: 16 Chinese dragons will win you 200x your bet, while eight of them will only win you 2x your bet. The lowest possible win is 0.20x for eight Js. If you happen to land 8 of each of two different symbols, only the highest value win will pay out.
But it doesn’t end there. The game also includes a wild: a golden coin against an electric blue background. This symbol can substitute any of the standard symbols. And there is, in fact, more. Hey, when we said this game was jam packed, we weren’t exaggerating! There are also a whopping 15 bonus symbols! Now pay attention, it gets complicated.
There are 12 fixed-value bonus symbols that look like burning, flaming suns, which can land anywhere on the grid at any time. These can award prizes ranging from 1x to 10x, 12x, and 15x. There are an additional three bonus symbols: the major, which awards 150x, minor at 50x, and mini, which gives you 20x your bet. These symbols are also sticky and if you land 3, 4, or 5 on the grid, it automatically triggers a free respin to increase your chances of landing 6 bonus symbols. Why? Because six bonus symbols of any kind will trigger the Hold the Jackpot Bonus game, of course!
During this bonus, you receive 3 free respins as soon as you land 6 bonus symbols, which remain sticky. Each new bonus symbol resets the respins to 3, and these respins continue either until they run out, or your grid is full of bonus symbols. A full grid of 16 bonus symbols will award you 1000x your original bet.
If this is all a bit much, there’s a shortcut! You can buy the Hold the Jackpot Bonus for 70 coins. And finally, there is a gamble feature, which allows you to risk your win for a chance at doubling it by choosing randomly between two suns.

Sun of Fortune can be played at any online casino in South Africa that offers Wazdan games!
Sun of Fortune is available to play on mobile, desktop or laptop. It is supported on iOS, Windows, Mac OS, HTML5 and Android.
This game ventures into crazy levels of customisation. You can choose low volatility or more frequent but smaller payouts, standard for a balanced mix of big wins and regular frequency, or high for the chance at big wins at low frequency. You can also change the sound and visual settings, change the speed settings between normal, fast and ultra-fast, and select autoplay.
To get started, we recommend trying the free-to-play option the first few times, just to familiarise yourself with the game.
As you’ve realised by now, this game is not a simple click-and-spin slot. It has so many features and customisable options that you need to actually spend a bit of time with it, getting to know it better. It’s a fantastic game, packed with fun and features, but it can get overwhelming if you just dive in head-first. Sun of Fortune is less of a one-night stand and more of a relationship.
