Chiefs Fortune is an online video slot machine game released in November 1999 and it is offered exclusively at online casinos powered by Microgaming. This online video slot game has 3 reels and 1 pay line. The theme of Chiefs Fortune is inspired by the traditional rituals performed by Native American Indians such as the rain dance.
In the later days of August when the land is very dry, Native American tribes in the Southwestern United States perform a rain dance. Up to this day, this ritual is still performed by men and women who wore special clothing and headdresses. Goat hair was put in the headdresses and any object having a blue color (signifies the wind and rain) such as turquoise is put in their clothes. Every year, these special clothes were worn for the rain dance. You will get to meet the Indian Chief who will invite you to join their rain dance. Experience wearing traditional Indian headdress and clothes, and you even learn how to shoot an Indian arrow onto a wooden target block in the Chiefs Fortune online slot game!

Graphics & Sound
The quality of the graphics and sound that Microgaming provides is absolutely fantastic and top notch. They have an impeccable reputation of making the most stunning graphics and true-to-life sound effects that will truly transport you to “that specific theme” they used in any of their slot games. Most people love to play games incorporated with Microgaming software because they have smooth animation and engaging yet non-interfering sounds. Since it is essentially a no-frills type of slot game, Chiefs Fortune has been designed to have a simple classic slot game with matching sound effects. The casing of the reels includes the reels, buttons and the paytable. The overall graphic design of Chiefs Fortune shows a tribe of Native American Indians gathered up to give thanks to Mother Nature for the wonderful things they have been given for the season, and to simply ask Mother Nature to give them rain in order to help them with the drought season (by performing a rain dance). Various colors used in the slot game include blue, green, purple, red, orange, yellow, black and white.
The constant background music you will hear in this game resembles the music from customary Native American Indians’ celebratory dances, accompanied by hooting sounds and merry cries of its dancers. Whenever you spin the reels and get winning combinations, simple sounds common in land-based slot machine games will be heard. When you get the Arrow symbol, you will hear the sound effect of an arrow shot in the air and twanged when it landed on the wooden target.
