Codex of Fortune is the sequel to NetEnt’s 2019 slot, Turn Your Fortune, which shares many similarities but has a few notable differences. Both 5×4, 40 pay-lines slots feature a Fortune Wins prize ladder, but Codex of Fortune adds extra levels and raises the top prizes all the way to a handsome 10,000x your total bet. With Codex of Fortune, you can save your keys and use them during free spins, which raises your statistical RTP.

Bonus and jackpots for Codex of Fortune (Rating of 4/5)
Codex of Fortune has a five-tier cylindrical progressive Fortune Wins cash award ladder that becomes active during respins and free spins.
You can activate the Fortune Wins prize ladder in one of three ways:
- Two scatters plus a pay-line win activates respins.
- Three scatters activates free spins.
- Three scatters plus a pay-line win activates respins and free spins.
Fortune Wins prize ladder
The gold column to the left of the reel set is made up of five vertical tiers, or “steps,” that each have seven horizontal positions, or “levels,” all containing multipliers of your total bet as cash awards from 5x to 10,000x. You can increase your prize during respins and free spins by vertically moving up the tiers with collected symbols or by turning the steps horizontally with keys.
The pay-line win symbol is collected and tracked by the five-slot Fortune Meter. Each time the meter is filled, you advance one tier vertically. Only collected symbols, keys, and blank positions appear during the respins. The feature ends when you collect 20 symbols total or have a spin with no new symbols or keys.
Keys may appear on reel five and slide into the keyhole on the prize ladder, and turn all five tiers one position to the right. When the respins are complete, you have the option to keep your increased prize or reset the prize ladder to the first position and save the keys for a future free spins bonus round.
Free spins wheel
You spin a wheel that determines the configuration of your free spins with three separate areas that contain the following:
- Free spins from seven to 13
- Collectible symbols
- One key, two keys, or blank
The feature starts with all five tiers of the Fortune Wins prize ladder on position two. The prize ladder shifts one position to the right for each saved key, up to three.
The free spins Fortune Wins meter has 20 slots, which advances you up the ladder each time it’s filled with collectible symbols or a “+10” symbol.
You also receive one additional spin for each scatter that lands on the reel set. The top prize during the free spins is 10,000x your total bet.
Codex of Fortune graphics and visuals (Rating of 3.5/5)
Codex of Fortune has a dark blue background that makes the gold on the reel set frame, lettering, prize ladder, and on the symbols really pop by contrast. French Art Nouveau inspires the graphics, and symbols include the lion, fish, owl, turtle, shell, and card symbols. The butterfly is the wild, and the peacock serves as the scatter. The graphics are decent enough but don’t seem to be much of an upgrade from the previous version.
Codex of Fortune gameplay (Rating of 3.5/5)
Some aspects of Codex of Fortune’s gameplay aren’t too difficult to understand, but a few may leave you scratching your head even after reading the game rules. One of those aspects is how the keys function. The game-in-play screens don’t explain that you lose your prize increase if you save your keys, so it’s unclear at first how saving or using the keys creates different outcomes.
Overall rating for Codex of Fortune by NetEnt (Rating of 3.75/5)
Codex of Fortune is well-designed, has complex and unique bonus features, and is very entertaining. For a sequel, it’s a bit too similar to its predecessor, Turn Your Fortune, but the ability to save keys and the 10,000x top prize are welcome upgrades. You should give Codex of Fortune a try if you haven’t already. Weighing this all out, we give Codex of Fortune a rating of 3.75/5.
