Orb of Destiny

Hardcore developer Hacksaw Gaming is back at it with another solid slot, this time materialized through Orb of Destiny. The theme may seem a bit basic, but hold on to your horses before you pass judgement! Despite the somewhat generic visuals for this slot, its features and multipliers provide decent entertainment and payouts up to 10,000x your stake.

Introduction – Orb of Destiny

The first thing to be aware of when it comes to Orb of Destiny is not to mix it up with Pragmatic Play’s Madame Destiny. Apart from the name, the two games are very similar at all, however.

Orb of Destiny was created by Hacksaw Gaming and released in April 2024. It comes with medium volatility, which is a tad lower than what you’d usually expect from this developer.

Despite the somewhat basic theme, the graphics are as crisp as ever. The gaming session takes place inside an attractive (obviously) female fortune teller’s wagon, with Tarot cards, dice, and lit candles strewn about. Let’s find out what your destiny is!

Layout, payouts, and other info

Your destiny is decided over 6 reels, each of them with 4 rows. Despite the larger than normal playing grid, Orb of Destiny still only operates with 14 paylines.

You can bet €0.10 to €100 per spin, which in many ways is the industry standard. The stake is easily adjusted in the bottom right, next to the spin and autoplay button.

Winning is done by combining at least three of the same symbols on a payline. The low-paying symbols are made up of colored cubes, where the blue and green ones are the least lucrative. At the top of the scale, you have the Tarot cards, which comes in five installments. A yellow one with a sun on it is the best, paying out 25x the stake for six in a row.

In addition to the regular symbols, there is also the wild. It’s represented by Lady Fortune and replaces all other symbols except scatter.

As mentioned, volatility is sat to medium with 3/5. Wins go up to 10,000x the stake, which is quite decent. Standard RTP is calculated to 96,23%, but other versions of the game also exist. You shouldn’t run into anything else than the standard version at serious casinos, though.

Orb of Destiny slot features

When it comes to the features, Orb of Destiny doesn’t go completely overboard. Most of it is centered around full reel wild multipliers, and Orb, and two sets of free spins.

The Orb of Destiny

This little symbol isn’t worth much on its own, but supplement Lady Fortune symbols with multipliers. They only appear during respins and in the bonus rounds. 

Lady Fortune

Lady Fortune in this instance are expanded wild symbols that covers the whole reel. Not only that, but they also come with multipliers of 2x to 100x. Each Lady can have up to five multipliers on her, which is decided by landing Orb Symbols.

But it doesn’t stop there! Lady Fortune symbols are also able to grant respins and other goodies. Yeah, the whole thing sounds a bit complicated – but it makes sense once you see it for yourself.

Free spins

In addition to the comprehensive Lady Fortune feature, Orb of Destiny also come with two sets of free spins. These bonuses are triggered by landing either exactly 3 or 4 scatters, as follows:

  • Lady Luck free spins: Landing 3 scatters anywhere in sight triggers 10 Lady Luck spins. During this feature, all Lady Fortune wilds that occur comes with at least two multipliers on them. More spins can be won by landing additional scatters.
  • Future Fortunes free spins: If you manage to get your hands on 4 scatters, you are awarded with 10 free spins. Future Fortunes is played out pretty much exactly the same way as the other bonus, only difference being that Lady Fortunes wilds has a minimum of three multipliers on them.

Bonus Buy options

Hacksaw Gaming gives you the option to buy the two bonus rounds directly, for a price. In addition to free spins, you can also opt to buy two cheaper options to pump up the excitement:

  • BonusHunt FeatureSpins: For 3x the bet, you are five times more likely to trigger free spins.
  • Fortune’s Favor FeatureSpins: If you pay 50x the bet, you are guaranteed at least one Lady Fortune symbol covering a reel.
  • Lady Luck free spins: The cheapest bonus round cost 100x the bet.
  • Future Fortunes free spins: The premium bonus will set you back 200x.

Conclusion and verdict

Orb of Destiny might not win any awards, but it’s a thoroughly enjoyable game none the less. With a more reasonable volatility range, frequent wins can be expected. At the same time, the max payout of 10,000x the bet is more than enough to chase a major payday.

To get there, you need the Lady Fortune symbols on your side. These full-reel multiplier wilds are the glue in this slot, and the key to winning big. It doesn’t come too easy though, as you need to land them and then also pair them with a good multiplier whilst getting respins.

Whether you believe in destiny or not, Hacksaw’s fortune teller slot should be worth a wager or two. It’s easy on the eyes, plays smoothly, and have the capacity to pack a punch when it wants to.
