RTP and volatility
Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any information about RTP, volatility and hit frequency on the official website of the provider. So, I can’t estimate the appropriateness of the conditions of the gameplay in Totems of fortune ™.
From my experience, Volatility of this slot is rather high, and, as a result, Hit frequency is quite low.
Graphics and sound
Honestly speaking, I like this slot’s graphics and sound effects quality. All details of the design are well-considered and well-implemented. As I said already, an interface is not mind-blowing but it makes the process of the game more joyful and fascinating.
The special animated intro that may be shown before the gameplay wasn’t included in the Totems of fortune slot design.
First of all, let’s consider the pros and cons of this slot.
As to whether the general perception of this slot, it didn’t impress me or make me super excited. Moreover, the fact that I couldn’t find such significant data as RTP and volatility level was disappointing, because I prefer to play in games in which I certainly know all the details of settings and approximate level of their safety and reliability.
Of course, this provider has been in the market for more than 5 years. So, players and casinos know it very well. And, in general, it has a good reputation. As a result, it makes gameplay in Totems of fortune quite safe for players.
Nevertheless, keep in mind that the lack of such important info can be simply inconvenient for you (namely this info often affects the final choice of an appropriate slot to play in).
Summing up, we have a well-made game created by a good provider that has pretty fascinating features like “Double up! On the other hand, we have a lack of important information, ordinary plot and not as big possible wins as we could wish. So, I suppose, you should weigh all pros and cons and make your choice whether to play in this or not by yourself.
