Pragmatic Play expands its collection of Orient-themed slots with Three Star Fortune. Before we look at anything else, let’s talk about the star trio in question briefly.
Fuxing, Luxing, and Shou xing aka the Three Star Gods or simply Fu Lu Shou are often depicted as sculptures of three old men you have probably seen in museums or even in someone’s home or business because of their auspicious symbolism. Fu is regarded cardinal among the three as he represents opulence, good luck, and great joy. He is often illustrated carrying a child or an imperial scroll to symbolize the passing down of fortune to descendants and to advocate the importance of acquiring ancient wisdom. Lu’s substance mostly borrows from Fu. He is seen carrying golden ingots or a Ru Yi (scepter) to symbolize wealth abundance or career success. Lastly, Shu is portrayed holding a peach (the fruit of immortality) and a Wu Lou (gourd) as a symbol for youth, good health, and long life.
The presence of Fu Lu Shou as symbols on the reels of Pragmatic Play’s Three Star Fortune might be enough to convince an omnist to give it a good spin. However, for those of us who need something more convincing than a slot’s skin, delving deeper into the gameplay is imperative.

Basic Rules, Math Model Stats, & Paytable
The recognizable controls tab from Pragmatic Play, which usually allows you to switch between a coin and a cash-based win evaluation system by clicking the Credit/Bet displayed on-screen, is the only tool you to customize betting preferences ahead of your spinning session. Needless to say, the – and + bet selectors and the Play button they sandwich are the most essential.
Moving on, the default Return to Player Percentage matches the majesty of the game’s stars at 96.27%. That is combined with a high volatility setting, whose rigidness is balanced out with an above-average hit rate. All these math stats combine to make Three Star Fortune just the ideal slot for those wagerers looking to embark on a casual trip to the orient.
As for the symbols, they all nail the theme perfectly. You will find 福, 禄, and 寿 (translates to Blessings/Fú Prosperity/Lù, and Longevity/Shòu) representing the low-pays and symbols of prosperity and luck in Chinese culture, including a gold Yuanbao (ingot), lychee (fruit), a scroll with the word Lù in simplified Chinese, and a gourd representing the high-pays. The symbol to keep an eye for here is the golden ingot, the premier symbol in the paytable with rewards of up to 25X.
Three Star fortune keeps things very simple when it comes to the win boosting extras with just expanding sticky wilds that award re-spins. Let’s see how that happens.
The Sanxing, Fú Lù Shòu, can appear on reels 2, 3, & 4 respectively on any spin. When that happens, the landed symbol expands over the entire reel to form a wild reel that substitutes for any regular symbol to complete winning combinations as a spin on the house where it will remain sticky is awarded.
Even though one expanded wild could trigger something substantial, your focus should be on the result of the re-spin. Why? Well, if yet another wild landed on the re-spin, another round on the house will be triggered while both wilds remain sticky; same when a third wild is landed- all three wilds will remain sticky while a re-spin is awarded. Now, let’s assume that reels 1 & 5 have golden ingots on all spots; that will result in you walking away with a clean 500X (25X on 10 paylines triggered on both directions).
Any Direction Pays
With virtually all slots utilizing a spinning reels format, wins are only triggered when the qualifying number of symbols for a payout are lined up from the left. Things are, however, different here as wins will be triggered whenever you line up at least 3 identical symbols adjacently to each other counting from either left or right. This automatically means that 5 of-a-kind combinations will be awarded twice (once for each direction).
We are not going to lie. Three Star fortune is not the type of game that dishes out a mega 5000X on a single round. As already mentioned, however, the player is exposed to a lenient math model, which doesn’t lean towards taking a toll on his/her bankroll at any moment. At the same time, not-so-big wins are dished-out consistently, meaning that we would have been elated if the developers could have just named this slot slow but sure.
