Mega Fortune is featured against a glamorous Vegas background perfect for creating the experience of playing in “Sin City” from home, work or anywhere the mood strikes. Released in 2009 (2013 mobile version) as one of several successful online slot games created by NetEnt, the game is one of the most popular of its kind holding the 2013 Guinness World Record for the largest jackpot payout in the category of online slots with a payout of €17.8 million. Aside from giving every player the chance to become a millionaire, Mega Fortune is styled after Net Entertainment’s core value of maintaining a 95-98% consistent payout, which is generous.
Graphics, Betting Options and Gameplay
The game background gives a glimpse of a millionaire’s paradise, and the payline numbers are set in luxury items such as insignia rings, watches, champagne, brandy, limos, cash, yachts, limos, and large diamonds. The spin dial glitters with diamond bling. As you play, a disco-style instrumental track plays creating a smooth ambiance. This game has all the gold, emerald, and sparkle a gamer looking for a casino experience could ask for.
According to NetEnt, this online video slot game runs on any computer or mobile device such as Windows and Mac computers; iOS and Android mobile devices. This allows for a wide range of options for convenient gameplay. For iOS and Android, the game features a convenient touch.
Platform and auto full screen
The layout of these slots is simple yet elegant and supports a smooth, straightforward gameplay that allows the player to easily keep track of their bets, wins, or losses. Mega Fortune features a 5-reel, 4-bet level, 25-bet line video slot gameplay that greatly increases a player’s chance to win. Bet level, bet lines, coins and coin value are tracked at the bottom while three featured jackpots line the top of the screen: Mega, Major, and Rapid. The minimum bet option at Royal Panda is £0.01 and the maximum is £50.00. The players that would like to bet higher amounts are better off with Twin Spin. With that slot you can bet up to £125, but the jackpot of Mega Fortune is far greater.
The Mega jackpot is a network pooled progressive jackpot, at the moment it stands above €1,000,000. The other two (Major and Rapid) are pooled local jackpots. Keep in mind that even if you don’t win the jackpot, there are many opportunities for wins of smaller coin values. A spin yielding 3 or more matching symbols will win a prize. In addition, there is always the chance of triggering a bonus Multiplier during free spins. Your winnings can be Multiplied with 1 up to 5 times!
The advanced Auto Play feature further promotes the ease of gameplay as they allow up to 1.000 automatic spins. Of course, Auto Play will pause itself in the event that a spin yields a bonus feature such as free spins or a bonus game. You can also end Auto Play when your winnings reach a certain number.
If a spin yields 3 or more golden wheel bonus symbols, this will trigger a bonus jackpot game. A flashy, gold wheel of fortune with 3 rotating parts (inner, outer, and middle layers) will appear and you are given 15-20 seconds to “stop” each rotating layer. Depending on how all 3 layers align, the player has the chance to win a jackpot or coin prize. Everything depends on your timing as you press the stop button. With a combination of skill and luck, you could win that Mega jackpot!
Another bonus feature is a free spin bonus with a 1 to 5 Multiplier, randomly given with a win. The game also features a Wild symbol that increases a player’s chances to spin a winning combination. The Wild symbol can replace any other symbol except for the Scatter and bonus symbols. All these features boost that feeling of running with a lucky streak and ensure an overall enjoyable gaming experience.
