|Online Slot Machine||Mega Fortune|
|Slot Provider||NetEnt Casino Software|
Net Entertainment, or NetEnt for short, is perhaps the most successful, or popular, slot producer at the moment. This holds especially true for the European market where most if not all online casinos feature their games. They’ve recently been moving towards USA as well, though the markets and legislation are still a big question mark waiting to be resolved. One of the most popular games from NetEnt is the Mega Fortune which is a progressive jackpot slot. Originally released in 2009 it still retains it’s spot as one of the best jackpots, and the mega pot is usually several millions. Since progressive jackpots get their pots from the players who play the game this means that the game is still widely played. Upon release the game became so popular that NetEnt soon released an enhanced version called Mega Fortune Dreams.

The wheel and the local jackpots
As mentioned the game has three jackpots, all of which are progressive and two of which are local. The Rapid and Major are specific to each casino, meaning that tit might be worth your while to check around ab it before choosing the casino where to play. The difference can be that someone won the jackpot today as opposed to two weeks ago. In terms of money the rapid jackpot features usually in several hundreds, and the major jackpot is from several thousands to tens of thousands. Choosing the right casino can make a different of 50 000 euro. However, the Mega jackpot is where the money is and this is a progressive jackpot that is shared between all casinos where the game is played. Normally the mega jackpot is around 2 million euro, though it often climbs to 3-4 million. The largest ever jackpot won from Mega Fortune was nearly 18 million euros.
The jackpots are activated through the bonus game, which in turn is activated by having three bonus symbols on an active payline running from left to right. The bonus game is played in the wheel of jackpots, with each spin of the wheel giving either a set amount of coins as a payout or the chance to advance to the next wheel. The second and third wheel give a coin payout or a chance to win a jackpot. The bet used during the game round that activated the bonus game has an effect on the chance to win a jackpot, but naturally not in any significant way. Consider it an added bonus if you play with higher than normal bets.
Mega Fortune basic game play
Mega Fortune slot has quite a high return to player, which means that all the wins and payouts are not tied to chasing the jackpots. The smallest bets run at 25 cents, so the game is excellent entertainment for low bet players and those who play for entertainment. The symbols on the screen represent what we most think of when we dream of having a mega fortune: luxury watches, stacks of money, high life, limousines and the like. The smallest payout start from three times the set bet, whenever three symbols for a combination from left to right. The higher pay outs are around a 1000 coins per active bet line.
In addition to the basic games you have the bonus symbol, which activates the jackpot games, and the wilds and scatters. Whenever you get 5 wilds on an active payline the game pays out enough coins to purchase the kind of yacht that features in the symbol itself: 10 000 coins.Wilds also of course substitute for everything else than scatters and the bonus symbol. Three or more scatter symbols, a wine bottle in this case, activates free spins, during which more free spins can be triggered by 2 or more scatter symbols. They can also increase the multiplier up to five.
Mega Fortune retains its place as one of the top jackpots, and the jackpot itself is really worth winning. It wont be easy of course, and I wouldn’t suggest chasing it. But if jackpot slots are something you like playing then Mega Fortune is without a doubt one of the better ones. Thanks to its progressive nature and large playerbase it also remains one with the highest payouts in the entire industry. The basic game also has a very good RTP futher adding to playability. The music, graphics and animations are from 2009, and haven’t really lost their edge even today.
