Mega Fortune Slot
Video slot names invariably give a pretty quick indication of what theme you can expect from the game, so NetEnt’s Mega Fortune certainly hints that it’s going to be aiming for a luxury vibe; a world inhabited by the super-rich.
And so it is, with its A, J, K and J symbols embedded in decadent, bling jewellery and its higher value symbols the status symbols associated with the hyper-affluent. What the ‘Mega’ bit also signalled to us was this might be a progressive jackpot slot, the title being a nod to the legendary Mega Moolah slots from rival developer Microgaming.
And this also proves to be the case, and what a progressive too! Big game hunters should certainly sit up and take notice of this themed slot when they learn it’s a routine millionaire-maker and was the source of a phenomenal €17.8 million payout in early 2013.
Before we get too carried away with the progressive potential of this online slot, it’s worth commenting that its fifteen-payline basegame makes for some very fine entertainment in itself. NetEnt have set the bar very high in the online slot world with its excellent production values, and Mega Fortune maintains that standard with very smooth presentation – it even has one of the few soundtracks that doesn’t have us racing to find the option to kill it, but then we are suckers for a bit of 80s funky soul.
Rewards from the basegame can also be pretty high-value with five Wilds on a payline triggering a pretty tasty 10,000x your linebet. If all this makes you worry Mega Fortune is beyond your means, then fear not for you can play all its paylines for as little as £0.50 per spin, and even go as low as £0.02 a spin with just one payline activated.
A little free spins fun adds to the lure of Mega Fortune with its Champagne Scatter symbol unlocking this feature when three or more are in view. What adds extra fizz to this feature is those triggering Scatters become active symbols to click on, the players pick revealing the number of spins they’ve won and the multiplier that will be applied to any wins.
Ultimately the main attraction for Mega Fortune players is its progressive jackpot game, so while you’re riding the reels in its basegame or free spins feature you’ll be willing three or more of its Bonus symbols onto an active payline. This activates the second-screen bonus game, where a trio of concentric Wheels of Fortune await you.
Here you’ll be hoping that your spins will progress you through the Wheels to the ultimate multi-million Mega Jackpot at the centre, however two lower-tier progressives and lesser fixed instant wins are there as consolation that you will still pluck a nice bonus from this round whenever you get to play it.
In our opinion, Mega Fortune slot makes a great choice for its basegame alone, but when you factor in the staggering progressive jackpot any spin can win you (and there’s no barrier to that event happening if you can only afford to play the minimum stake on this online slot) it becomes pretty much irresistible. We can’t guarantee Mega Fortune will bestow millions on you, but we can promise it should always deliver a rich gaming experience.
