With five reels and 25 paylines, Mega Fortune is a low-variance, progressive jackpot slot from the mighty NetEnt. It’s all about wealth, and the luxury lifestyle theme can be seen in symbols including sports cars, diamond watches and credit cards.
With a great free spins element and a bonus game giving players the chance to become a millionaire via its life-changing jackpots, Mega Fortune has gained a great deal of attention.
It’s also known for dishing out the highest ever web-based jackpot win, a whopping €17.8m in January 2013. With other massive wins of €6.9m in 2012 and €11.7m in 2010.
It’s suitable for players at all levels, so no wonder it’s the game everyone’s talking about!
How to play
The graphics and sound effects are all about popping champagne corks and speedboats hurtling across your screen, plus the clicks of the Wheel of Luck.
Before you begin spinning, choose your bet level and the number of active paylines, decide your bet size and then just spin the reels.
Play Mega Fortune from a mere 25p a spin, or for as much as £50 on your device of choice – there’s no discernible difference in quality on mobile gadgets.
Mega Fortune has three progressive jackpots – Mega, Major and Rapid. You’ll see the counters for all three of these just above the reels.
In Mega Fortune, the luxury yacht is the Wild symbol, and it can substitute for every symbol apart from the bonus and Scatter icons. It can form winning combos both in its own right and when substituting.
Mega Fortune Special Features
Free Spins Round
Trigger this feature by landing at least three Scatter (a champagne bottle and two glasses, what else?) symbols anywhere on the reels. Then select one of these to get your free whirls plus a multiplier.
Three Scatters bags you up to 14 times your stake, four pays 20 times your wager, five shells out 40x the original bet.
The maximum reward is 10 free spins and a nice 5x multiplier, along with the chance to activate more free spins if you land more Scatter symbols. There’s also the chance to enter this game’s star attraction, the Mega Fortune bonus game.
Mega Fortune Bonus Round
This round comes with the three progressive jackpots. Look for three bonus symbols – the Wheel of Luck – on consecutive reels, for instance, Reels 3 to 5. These symbols also have to display from left to right, and you can only win one bonus game per spin.
While the first two wheels give you the chance of a coin win or to play the following wheel, the second and third wheels offer you the chances of a coin or jackpot win. The maximum value of a coin win is 7500.
Return to Player (RTP)
There’s not too much to report here, the RTP on Mega Fortune is a pretty standard 96.6%.
Mega Fortune Verdict
Mega Fortune offers plenty of chances to win, and is highly entertaining – one reviewer describes it as one of the best games of its kind around.
We reckon you’ll also love it if you like your gameplay nice and straightforward. It admittedly doesn’t have the most original theme in the world.
But, even if you don’t become a millionaire, there are plenty of smaller wins to keep things exciting. Give it a shot and let us know what you think.
