Mega Fortune Slot Review
Millionaire Making Mega Fortune’s Jackpot is rarely under £5 Million; Flash Cars, Diamonds and Yachts could all be yours in one lucky spin on Netent's Mega Fortune Jackpot Slot
Mega Fortune is probably the most renowned online progressive jackpot of all time. There are many online jackpots to choose to play, but Mega Fortune is the one that’s stood out from the rest. But that might have something to do with the Guinness Book of Record- breaking Jackpot it once paid out to a (shall we say lucky?) Finnish casino player in 2013; to an eye watering tune of £15 Million!
We have Netent to thank for this brilliant and fun online slot and although they’ve since released a newer version, called Mega Fortune Dreams, but there’s nothing like having a spin on Mega Fortune when the jackpot is at bursting point of several million £'s!
How to play Mega fortune Slot
Mega Fortune is a really simple video slot to play. It’s made up of 25 reels, 3 rows and a total of 25 pay lines.
The graphics are themed with what you’d call the luxurious things in life, so expect to see Diamonds, Brandy Snifters, Expensive Rolex looking watches and Boat icons on the reels, which are all set in front of what looks like the French Riviera or Monte Carlo Casino glitzy backdrop.
Mega Fortune offers not one but 3 jackpots, the main one being the progressive ‘mega’ jackpot, which is an amount pooled from all the contributors playing at all the online casinos which offer the Mega Fortune Slot.
The 2 other local jackpots are called Rapid and Major jackpots, which are smaller and called ‘local’ jackpots. This means that the casino you are playing at offers these jackpot and therefore, since less people are contributing to it, it’s a lower prize on offer, but still a lucrative win amount.
Notice the ticker, at the top, which will tell you what amount is progressive jackpot is creeping up to. It’s rare that the Mega Fortune Jackpot is set off under £5 Million, which is massive, but as we already highlighted, it’s possible for it to go to so much more than that.
This is why this slot is appealing in so many ways. Playing progressive jackpots really add to the thrill of playing online casino, knowing that in one spin, if the luck stick is pointing at you, your life could be changed overnight with an online jackpot win of millions.
So, without further ado, let’s get started and playing Mega Fortune. Set the slot up to your liking and the bet levels you prefer to play on. If you want to read the slot instructions you can do this now as well by clicking the 'Pay Table' button. There are 4 different bet levels. This is the number of coins you want to bet per active win line. The coin values that you can bet on Mega Fortune are as follows: 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, and 50. As a simple guide to betting levels:
The minimum bet playing at 25 win lines (Bet level 1 + coin value 1c) = £0.25
The maximum bet at playing 25 win lines (Bet level 4 + coin value 50c) = £50
Now, let’s get started and get aiming for that Mega Fortune Bonus round!
Bonus Rounds & Extra Features
We don’t really need to say that the main draw of the Mega Fortune Slot is the Progressive Jackpot. You can still land some nice wins whilst playing Mega Fortune if you don’t succeed in winning the Mega jackpot, as there are the normal slot wins, but there's also 2 more local jackpots you have a chance at hitting as well.
FreeSpins and Scatter Symbols: The champagne bottles and flutes are the Scatter symbols on Mega Fortune. The Free Spins bonus round will start automatically when you land three or more Scatter symbols on the reels. What’s nice is that you can click a Scatter symbol on the reels to reveal the number of Free Spins and the multiplier you’d like. There’s also the opportunity to win Freespins in the free spins round as well, when you get 2 or more Scatters on the reels. The prizes you make in the Free Spins bonus game will also be multiplied by the multiplier which is indicated in the game (max of x5).
Bonus game and the Progressive Jackpot:
This is where the fun really starts to happen and it can get a little bit hairy. If you manage to get into the bonus round, this is where you’re on your way to having a chance at winning the Mega Fortune Mega Jackpot, so hold onto your seat.
To activate the bonus game, you need to get 3 bonus symbols (depicted as mini wheel of fortune wheels) on an active win line from the left to right. Get these and then the magical bonus round will appear which looks like a round bonus wheel (think Wheel of Fortune - left pic)).
The Bonus Wheel is made up of 3 rings, each representing a different jackpot you can win. On the wheels/circles, there are numbers and cash prizes that you can take home if you don’t manage to get the jackpot. It’ll be spinning and it’s your job to hit the stop button, just at the right time.
Be careful when you hit stop, as what you’re aiming to do is to stop and land it so that it allows you to cross over to the next reel (the next inner circle) and so on. If you manage to get through to the second reel, it’ll give you the chance at winning coins but also at the Rapid Jackpot or, the chance of playing and going further, to the next wheel.
The third and final wheel also gives you a chance at winning coins, and also at the Major Jackpot. Manage to win your way once more, to the centre, and you'd better start celebrating as the Mega Jackpot will be all yours!
