Mega Fortune is an extremely popular online video slot from NetEnt, mostly because it features a progressive jackpot. The game is played over 5 reels and 25 adjustable paylines, and its theme revolves around wealth and luxury, giving players an idea of what they might be in for.
A yacht, champagne, a limo, a watch, are some of the symbols that appear on the reels, depicted through simple but sharp and effective graphics. The soundtrack is a bit of a cheesy groove, somewhat reminiscent of the ‘80s Miami Vice but quite appropriate given the theme and the overall design.
Adjustable paylines make this an affordable choice for low stakes players but also suitable for mid rollers, given a maximum bet of $/€/£50 per spin. The slot offers some great base game payouts, but most will be looking to win the pooled Mega Jackpot, which can run into millions. The game also features 2 local jackpots and a free spin bonus with a multiplier of up to 5 times on wins.
There are 3 symbols players should look out for in this game. The Champagne bottle is the scatter, which can award instant prizes but also trigger the free spin round. The Wild symbol is represented by a yacht, which can replace all game symbols except Scatter and Bonus symbols. This is also the highest paying icon in the base game. The Bonus symbol is represented by a spinning wheel, and it’s key to activating the Bonus Game and having a shot at one of the progressive jackpots.
Payout Table and Potential Winnings
The highest payout in the base game is 10,000 coins, which is awarded when 5 wilds appear on the reels. All payouts are based on the number of coins wagered. The largest amount that can be won with Mega Fortune is the progressive jackpot, which can be collected during the Bonus Game.
This is the big one, known for some of the highest jackpot payouts in the history of online gambling, including a record-breaking €17.8 million win from a €0.25 bet placed in Finland in January 2013. Just above the reels, on the frame of the slot, 3 little displays show the current and constantly increasing amount that can be won for each of the 3 jackpots.
One of the bonus features of this game is the free spin round, which is triggered when 3 scatters land on the reels. At this point, players get to pick one of the three symbols to reveal the number of free spins along with the multiplier. Up to 10 free spins with a multiplier of up to 5x can be won. Landing at least 2 scatters during the free spin round will award extra free spins or a multiplier.
The Mega Fortune Bonus round is the highlight of his game and is activated when at least 3 Bonus symbols appear on the reels from left to right. When this happens, a ‘Wheel of Fortune’ style wheel will be displayed on a new screen. Players will then click to spin the wheel and then again to stop it. If the ticker stops on an arrow, players will move to the next level of the game, otherwise they will get a cash prize and return to the base game.
In the second level, players can win cash prizes again, trigger the Rapid Progressive Jackpot payout or move to the next level of the game if the ticker stops on an arrow. Same again in the third level, where players will get the chance to win cash prizes, trigger the Major Progressive jackpot or land on the arrow pointing at the Mega jackpot.
