Mega Fortune Slot Playing Strategy
As a regular slot player, you’d probably be quite familiar with the slot game “Mega Fortune” and if you’re not then you might not even believe us when we say that this online slot offers a jackpot that sprawls well into the millions, usually several in fact.
Mega Fortune is an online progressive jackpot slot produced by Netent. It’s not a ‘new’ Netent slot by any stretch of the imagination, having first launched back in 2011. The game is glitzy, a lil’ bit cheesy but for an online slot machine that’s over 7 years old – it still packs a punch when to comes to casino entertainment.
What's it all about?: Mega Fortune Slot is designed with 5 reels and a total of 25 pay lines. Mega Fortune Slot can be played from as little as 25p per spin up to £50 per spin. Mega Fortune isn’t complicated to play, in fact is one of the most simple of Netent slots out there, especially if you compare it to newer slots released in the past year. However, do not let that put you off as this game is legendary and there’s a million plus jackpot at stake here!
Game & Bonus Features: The main features in Mega Fortune slot are the Wilds, Scatter Symbols, Bonus Game (Mega Fortune Wheel) Free Spins and of course the 3 progressive jackpots (Rapid, Major and Mega). The Mega Fortune Wilds can appear on all the 5 reels. The Wild symbols substitute for all other symbols except for the bonus wheels and the champagne scatter symbols to create extra winning pay lines.
The scatter symbols (which are the Champagne flutes) are responsible for triggering the fun free spins feature. At this point, you’ll get to pick one of three scatters to reveal how many free spins you’ll get and what multiplier will be applied.
Mega Fortune Slot Jackpots & Bonus Wheel
To get a shot at even coming close to the Mega Fortune Mega Jackpot (or the other progressive jackpots) you’ll need to trigger the bonus game. That’s where they’re lurking.
To do this, you need to get 3 or more of the ‘Bonus Wheels’ symols landing on an active pay line (running from left to right) starting at the first reel. You will then trigger the Mega Fortune jackpot wheel bonus game.
The wheel is reminiscent of a ‘Wheel of Fortune’ style wheel. Believe me, things can get a tad exciting when it’s activated. There are still some steps you need to achieve before you come close to winning the jackpot; however you are at least one step closer at this point.
The Mega Fortune bonus wheel contains 3 concentric wheels which basically represent steps and the different progressive jackpots (Rapid, Major and Mega). The wheels will be spinning when you enter this feature and you’ll need to hit stop and hopefully land the 1st wheel on an arrow which will lead you to the middle wheel.
If this doesn’t happen, you can still walk away with a cash prize. If you hit the arrow and you advance to the middle wheel then you can win a cash prize or the Rapid Jackpot. Or like before, you can line up the arrow and it’ll take you to the third wheel. The third wheel will award you with much higher cash prizes, the chance to win the major progressive jackpot or again for the last time, will allow you to go one step further and hit the Mega Fortune Mega Jackpot!
Recommended Playing Strategy
Although the outcome of this game is entirely random, there are a couple of things which might help you get closer to that life changing jackpot win. These include:
Bet Max: If you’re wondering whether you should be betting ‘max’ then it’s known that it certainly helps reward players who are prepared to risk more money and contribute more cash to the overall pooled jackpots.
Look Out For Mega Fortune Bonuses & Free Spins: It’s not common to find dedicated Mega Fortune free spins but there are some around. It’s always a good idea to look for free casino bonuses instead of free spins as free spins are usually given on a designated slot such as Starburst slot or Twin Spin Slot. A free casino bonus would enable you to choose free spins on any game you wanted – including Mega Fortune Slot.
Jackpot Size:Although every player contributes to the jackpot and without those, the jackpot would be far smaller, you’re only really going to want to play (unless you have your eye on the other, smaller jackpots) when the Mega jackpot has reached several million. It’s reported that the jackpot is won on average every 12 weeks with an average jackpot between £3-6 Million.
But as you just read, in some cases it’s been known to reach much higher amounts. In this case, to increase your chances of winning, we’d probably play more frequently when the jackpot is large enough to be in the winning zone.
Mega Fortune’s Jackpots & Rtp %
Mega Fortune is a progressive slot machine which means it offers a growing jackpot every time someone wagers it. This includes players from all casinos which offer the game.
A tiny portion of their bet is pooled to contribute to each of the jackpots. The main Mega jackpot will grow until someone wins it and it’ll then start again. This cycle continues, so it’s no wonder that Mega Fortune has made many multi-millionaires winners over the past decade.
The RTP % for Mega Fortune Slot is at a nice 96.60%, however you should keep in mind that 7.39% of all bets actually contribute directly towards the 3 progressive jackpots. What this basically means is unless you win a jackpot, the games RTP% is on the lower side at 89.21%. Now this doesn’t put us off because after all, we’re all aiming for the Mega jackpot aren’t we, but it is worth mentioning.
Mega Fortune Jackpot Winners List
