Even though the Mega Fortune slot was launched back in 2009, it is still one of the most popular slots in the NetEnt portfolio. You can clearly see that this is not a new slot, but that is also a part of its charm. If you want something slightly more modern looking, and with some more extravagant features, take a look at the sequel slot Mega Fortune Dreams from 2014.

When the Mega Fortune slot was first released back in 2009, it was not adapted for mobile play. Since then, NetEnt has released a version adapted for mobile touch screen devices, such as smartphones and tablets. Your chance of winning any of the progressive jackpots is not impacted by your choice of device – desktop computer, smartphone or tablet.

Basic information about Mega Fortune

  • Launch year: 2009

  • You can decide how many paylines to activate, from 1 to 25.
  • The lowest coin value is €0.01 and the highest is €0.50.
  • You can bet 1 coin, 2 coins, 3 coins or 4 coins per activated payline.

The smallest possible wager on Mega Fortune is therefore €0.01 x 1 payline x 1 coin = €0.01 per round.

The largest possible wager is €0.50 x 25 paylines x 4 coins = €50 per round.

IMPORTANT: You can only win the Mega Fortune Mega Jackpot when you are wagering 100 coins (25 active paylines x 4 coins per payline = 100 coins).

Wild symbol

The yacht is a wild symbol that can substitute for any of the regular symbols, but not for the scatter symbol (champagne) or the bonus symbol (wheel of fortune).

The scatters are the key to free spins mode

The champagne is a scatter symbol and your key to free spins mode. You need at least three champagne symbols, anywhere on the reels, to be rewarded with both coins and free spins.

During the free spins, only TWO scatter symbols are required to get new free spins and/or a win multiplier. The largest possible win multiplier is 5x.

The bonus game – this is where the progressive jackpots can be won

You need to have three bonus symbols (the wheel-of-fortune) lining up from leftmost to right on an active payline to trigger the bonus game.

The bonus game is played on a big wheel-of-fortune that is actually three wheels combined.

  1. You start by spinning the outermost wheel. If it stops on a number, you win coins. If it stops on an arrow, you proceed to the middle wheel. The coin wins on the outermost wheel are in the 100 coin – 300 coin span.
  2. If you proceed to the middle wheel, you get to spin it. If it stops on a number, you win a coin win (minimum coin win is 300 coins, maximum is 700 coins). If it stops on the RAPID field, you have won the Mega Fortune Rapid Progressive Jackpot. If it stops on an arrow, you proceed to the innermost wheel.
  3. When you spin the innermost wheel, you can either win a coin win (2,500 coins – 7,500 coins) or a progressive jackpot. If the wheel stops on the MAJOR field, you have won the Mega Fortune Major Progressive Jackpot. If the wheel stops on the field with the diamond-adorned arrow, you are sent into the center and have won the Mega Fortune Mega Progressive Jackpot.
