For a long time, Net Entertainment’s Mega Fortune slot machine held the record for the biggest ever progressive jackpot prize paid out to an online slot player, at over $16m. It has since been beaten by Microgaming’s Mega Moolah slot, but Mega Fortune is still capable of making you a millionaire, many times over. Evidence of its staying power among players is all around; especially since its sequel (Mega Fortune: Dreams) cannot topple the popularity or prizes of this major slot.
Look and feel
Mega Fortune is a lifestyles of the rich and famous-themed slot, giving players a sample of the very lifestyle that could be theirs, should they strike it lucky with this game. Net Entertainment have made it as “bling” as possible when it comes to the slot’s imagery. Expect rings, watches, money clips, limousines, and whisky and cigars to appear on the reels of this slot.
Mega Fortune may not hold the record for the biggest ever progressive win anymore, but it does still enable its winners to bag the top prize with bets worth just 0.25 coins. No Microgaming progressive jackpot (not even Mega Moolah) can match that. Unlike other video slots, Mega Fortune allows all its progressives to be won with any bet, whilst other slots’ progressives are only winnable depending on how much you stake.
All 25 paylines are fixed in this slot, but players can select coin denominations of 0.01 up to 0.50, and bet up to four coins per line in this game. Mega Fortune’s top progressive can be (and has been) won for as little as 0.25 per spin, whilst at its costliest, you are looking at a capped wager of $50 a go.
The yacht acts as a wild, and it can replace all symbols save for bonuses and scatters. Scatters appear as champagne symbols, and they can offer scattered wins as well as trigger a free spins bonus game. In that feature, all wins are gifted a random multiplier worth between 1x and 5x the normal rate of pay. The feature can also be retriggered with just two extra scatters.
As for the bonus round, it is triggered by landing three or more bonus icons on consecutive reels. Once the bonus begins, players can work their way through three money wheels (one inside the other). Players will either win a coin cash prize or advance to the next wheel until they get to the innermost one. On the inner wheels, players could walk away with the Rapid, Major, or Mega Jackpot cash prizes, or a larger coin cash prize.
