Gameplay, Betting Range and RTP
Before the player starts to get into the game it is important to understand some of the boring but necessary essentials of game play. Mega Fortune is a progressive jackpot slot that normally sits around 10,000. It has a slightly higher coin range than other games – a spin will cost anywhere from €0.30 to €58. But if you want to win big, then you have to play big, and this rich slot is all about the huge wins. It can be played for free, but really, with the amount of potential money to be won, who would want to! With an RTP of 96.6% it is a serious draw for the avid gamer. And even without the big win, it has a very consistent hit rate, which will bring in the newer players, too, and keep them engaged in this excellent slot.
Winning Symbols and the Bonus Features
There are a few important symbols to look out for in Mega Fortune, and we will run through them here. First up, the all-exciting Wild. This really is a Wild ride, as it takes the form of a racing speedboat zipping across the screen, leaving sea spray across the reels in its wake. Though it may be simple, it certainly makes the game more exciting, yet another reminder of what could be. The speedboat Wild replaces all other symbols, with the exception of the bonus (a golden wheel) and Scatter (champagne bottle and glasses), and incredibly it comes with its own set multiplier of 5x. This is by far the fastest and simplest way to regain any previous losses on played bets, and an easy way to keep the gameplay going.
As many slot games, Mega Fortune Casino Game has an excellent free spins feature. This is activated simply by landing a minimum of three champagne Scatter symbols on any of the reels. Picking one of the champagne icons will give the player free spins and also a multiplier. With the maximum reward possible being 10 free spins, it may not seem worth it until the player realizes it comes complete with a massive 5x multiplier. Three Scatters tend to add 10 or 14x to any placed bet, four offers up 20x, and five Scatters can give 100x. A smaller sub-feature to this is that only two Scatters during the free spins game will allow a second pick and more spins plus a multiplier. This happens practically on every single spin. These free spins also pop up pretty regularly, keeping that dream of a big win tantalizingly within reach. And if that isn’t enough, more spins can always be activated upon entering the Mega Fortune Bonus game.
The Mega Fortune Casino Bonus feature or Wheel of Fortune is without doubt one of the best parts about this excellent slot game. Three wheels lead to three progressive jackpots. Here, the player is attempting to get three Wheel bonus symbols on adjacent reels. It looks like a large sparkly, possibly diamond studded wheel contain two smaller wheels inside it. Simply press on the spin button and get the party started big time as the wheels then begin to turn. On the outer wheel is where the guaranteed cash prizes and small arrows reside. Moving these arrows moves the player onto the second wheel, which has even larger money prizes, and then also the additional possibility of getting to that third bonus wheel. Upon arriving at that third wheel, the player should keep their eyes open for a glittering diamond arrow that leads on to the Mega Jackpot. Unlike the first two jackpots encountered, this third jackpot is a global one, and has been known to pay out an average of €4 million. Activate this and there will be no need to play this type of game anymore; you will instead be living this lifestyle. And for the sceptics out there, this is not an unobtainable win. There have been multiple big jackpot winners over the years, with €11.7 million and €17.8 million being won over the last few years.
