Fortune of the Golden Rat introduction

Try your luck on Fortune of the Golden Rat as you spin your way to free games. If you reach the bonus round, there is a chance to win 200x your total bet and a whopping 50 free spins with a 2x multiplier; however, with a low RTP, it will take nerves of steel and a strong stomach to beat the rat.

Theme, graphics & soundtrack 

Oriental-themed games are amongst the most common online slot games, with Fortune of the Rat employing some familiar icons and symbols in its graphic design. The winning symbols include koi carp, money bags and gold coins, whilst the more traditional symbols are decorated in lotus flowers and jewels. The golden rat symbol, which is the stacked wild, is the most impressive and innovative, with the little jig he does when involved in a win line quite endearing.

The reels are the deepest burgundy and are housed in an opulent gold frame. The backdrop is a rich red colour bestowed with Chinese lanterns, good luck symbols and bamboo shoots.

The soundtrack is faster-paced than many oriental-themed games, in which the music is often quite gentle and authentic. The music in Fortune of the Golden Rat feels more Hollywood thriller than oriental and might become a little overpowering after a short while.

Fortune of the Golden Rat RTP and variance

The RTP on Fortune of the Golden Rat is 94.03 per cent, which is well below the online slots average of 96 per cent, and the volatility is high. To get a feel for Fortune of the Golden Rat and other Aspect Gaming demo slots, it is recommended that you play for free in demo mode here at Slots Temple before playing with your own money at an online casino.

Fortune of the Golden Rat review: our verdict

Fortune of the Golden Rat by Aspect Gaming is an oriental-themed game with a generous free spins feature; however, with a low RTP of 94.03 per cent, it is by no means guaranteed that the feature will be triggered before the balance is depleted. 

The game displays the win track feature, which enables players to see at a glance how long it has been since a winning spin. Game statisticians might enjoy this feature; however, for most players of Fortune of the Golden Rat, it could just be an unnecessary reminder of how infrequently the game pays out. High volatility games tend to be favoured by high rollers but, with a maximum stake of 2,000, it is hard to imagine Fortune of the Golden Rat appealing to a wide range of players.
