Spin that reel – Mega Fortune slot review
Do you like playing slots with progressive jackpots that run into the millions of euros? Then Mega Fortune is definitely one of your slots of choice. Since its introduction in 2009, it is one of the most popular video slots slots from developer Netent. This is mainly due to the huge Mega Jackpot that there is to win on this slot machine. The slot held the record for highest jackpot ever won with a staggering value of € 17,861,813. The lucky winner only needed a quarter to win! This jackpot was in the Guinness Book of Records as the highest jackpot ever won in an online casino.
If you look at the history of Mega Fortune, you will see that the top prize (the Mega Jackpot) is won every 10 to 12 weeks with an average value of € 4.5 million. So this slot has already got quite a few millionaires on its name. The reason why this jackpot falls so often is, besides its massive popularity, because it is a progressive jackpot. This means that more casino share this jackpot and it also means that all players at all these connected casinos contribute to this one jackpot.
The game and the features
Mega Fortune has 25 paylines that you can play from a minimum bet of 1 cent per payline. There are five reels with three symbols per reel in sight. The symbols consist of delicious decadent stuff such as a diamond Rolex, a limousine, a glass of cognac with a thick cigar and a yacht with the text WILD on it, which is obviously the wildcard of the game. A bottle of champagne with the text Scatter is the scatter symbol. Land 3 or more scatter symbols and you win free spins. Click on one of the bottles of champagne and you will see how many free spins you get and what the multiplier is that is on it.
Mega Fortune Free Spins scatters
You can get additional Free Spins during your free spins when you land two scatter symbols. You then click one of the champaign bottles again and the free spins with multiplier are added again.
But of course Mega Fortune is all about the progressive jackpot and the bonus game. The Bonus Game starts when the first three reels of Mega Fortune show three BONUS symbols on an active payline. Once the bonus game starts, a Wheel of Fortune appears with not one but three reels. The first spin moves the outer disk. When you stop the wheel at an amount, you win that amount directly as cash prize and the bonus round is finished. Stops the wheel on an arrow, then the Bonus Round goes on and you have to spin the center disk. The amounts on that disk are much higher and there are two spots with the word RAPID. If you land on one of these two spots, you win the Rapid Jackpot. Which is usually a few hundred euros.
When you stop the mid-wheel also on an arrow, then you are getting really close to a life changing moment. You then go to the inner disk, with twelve spots. Ten of them are cash prizes. The eleventh box is the Major Jackpot, which is at least a few thousand euros. The twelfth box is good for the Mega Fortune Mega Jackpot and a new life.
