Description and Review: With a Chinese theme, Mandarin Fortunes is one of the latest offerings from new kids on the block – 2 By 2 Gaming.
Again, graphically, it’s not brilliant. Not terrible, but just not brilliant. However, this is going to be a very short review. Why? Well, I’m glad you asked.
The reason is this: Mandarin Fortunes is an exact clone of Riches of the Sea – the free spins round is the same, the paytable is the same. In fact, everything is the same except for the symbols.
So, you can read our review of Riches of the Sea instead – we did quite like it. So, I guess, we quite like Mandarin Fortunes in exactly the same way.
However, I do have to question why a brand new slots developer is starting off by cloning games when they’ve only actually got a total of four or five slots on the market.
For that reason, I’m not particularly impressed. Why play Mandarin Fortunes when, in effect, you’ve already played it by playing Riches of the Sea?
