Mega Fortune slot from NetEnt
In 2009 NetEnt released the legendary Mega Fortune slot with 3 progressive jackpots (network-related). The machine made it into the Guinness book of records (in 2013) by paying out the biggest Jackpot of €17.8 million to one lucky mobile player from Finland. Limos, yachts, and champagne are a few of the shiny symbols representing the lavish lifestyle promised to you by this flashy slot.

Wilds and Scatters are paid symbols and increase your chances at fantastic prizes, bringing you one step closer to the ‘big kahuna’ life. Land three Bonus symbols on the first three reels and get your ticket to the Jackpot in the shape of a Wheel of fortune. The slot has a Low Volatility and RTP of 96 %, and you can start trying your luck right away in the DEMO version for free and without registration.

Review and recommendations by the testing team

  • Mega Fortune is undoubtedly one of the most exciting NetEnt slots but bear in mind that it subtracts to feed the Jackpot. Therefore, if you want to go for the Jackpot, your bankroll should be ready for such a game. However, in general, we don’t recommend playing progressive Jackpot slots -nor with fixed, nor with network accumulating.
  • This is a pretty straight-forward slot on a 5x3 grid with 25 pay lines, with the following features:
  • The Wilds, which are paid if you land 2 or more. This is always a good thing. On this slot, they even pay big time - 10 000 for 5OAK! During our sessions, the balance was mainly kept in check by landing the Wild symbols occasionally, with some combinations of up to 15x-25x total bets. 
  • 3 or more Champagne Scatter symbols trigger the Free Spins. Click on one of them to see if you got the maximum amount of Free Spins and what multiplier is awarded. If you land 2 additional Scatters during the Free Spins, you’re rewarded with extra spins, or the multiplier will be increased by one. If you got that second option- the multiplier - will remain till the end of all Free Spins. Our winnings during Free Spin testing reached up to 40x-60x total bets, which is not so great, but kept us hanging in there and waiting to hit the Bonus round.
  • The Bonus round is rewarded if 3 Bonus symbols appear on the first 3 reels (during the main game and Free Spins). With it, you’ve got your ticket to a life-changing payout. But, of course, you’re not there yet. First, you have to get past the outer wheel, which will give you a coin win or access to the next wheel. If you get to that wheel, you can be awarded again with a coin win or get to the inner wheel, where the Jackpots are located. We never made it past the second wheel during our extensive test sessions and were only rewarded some insignificant coins. You might think you have any influence on where the wheel stops when you push the stop button, but that’s just an illusion. It’s all decided by the random number generator. 
  • The Jackpots are progressive, and a part of all bets is added to NetEnt’s network prize pool. The Swedish network guarantees honest payout for all the progressives. In total, there are 3 different network-related jackpots at this slot:
  • 1) Mega - charges 5.39% of each bet for all players.
  • 2) Major - deduction of 1.1% bets.
  • 3) Rapid Jackpots - 1% will be deducted from the bet.
