Mega Fortune

Mega Fortune is a slot machine from NetEnt. It was released back in 2009 and has pretty rudimentary graphics and features, but is still one of the most popular games in the NetEnt portfolio. Why this slot has managed to remain so popular is not difficult to understand when you take a look at the three progressive jackpots that can be won in the bonus game.

There are three progressive jackpots attached to this slot:

  • Mega Fortune Rapid Jackpot
  • Mega Fortune Major Jackpot
  • Mega Fortune Mega Jackpot

The Rapid Jackpot and the Major Jackpot are local jackpots, while the Mega Jackpot is pooled. This means that the Mega Jackpot is fed by players in all the casinos where you can play Mega Fortune online. The Raid Jackpot and the Major Jackpot are on the other hand unique for each for each individual online casino. The Rapid Jackpot and Major Jackpot in Leo Vegas Casino are only fed by Leo Vegas players, the Rapid Jackpot and Major Jackpot in Mr Green Casino are only fed by Mr Green players, and so on. This also means that a Major Jackpot payout in Mr Green Casino wont impact the size of the Major Jackpot in any other casino, and so on.

The pooled Mega Fortune Mega Jackpot starts at €1 million. This means that even if it was recently, a new winner will always receive at least €1 million. This progressive jackpot never restarts from zero, it restarts from €1 million.

The largest Mega Fortune Mega Jackpot payout so far took place on 20 January 2013, when a Mega Fortune Mega Jackpot containing €17,860,868 was paid out to a Finish player in Paf Casino. This jackpot is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records, because it is the largest progressive jackpot that has been won in an online casino. The winner, who elected to remain anonymous, lived in the Helsinki (Helsingfors) area at the time of the win.

Special symbols

  • Mega Fortune has a wild symbol. This is an ordinary wild symbol, without any side effects. The wild symbol depicts a luxury boat and the word WILD. It can substitute for any symbol, except for the champagne bottle (scatter symbol) and the wheel of fortune (bonus symbol).
  • The champagne bottle is a scatter. It is easy to recognize, because it’s marked with the word SCATTER. If you get at least two scatter symbols, any where on the reels, you win coins. If you get at least three scatter symbols, anywhere on the reels, you win coins AND you start the free spins mode.
  • The wheel of fortune is a bonus symbol in Mega Fortune. You need three bonus symbols, in line, from leftmost to right, on an active payline, to trigger the bonus game.

Free spins mode

When you are in free spins mode, getting two scatter symbols (anywhere on the reels) is enough to be rewarded with additional free spins and/or a win multiplier. New win multipliers are added to the old ones, but it is not possible to create a win multiplier that is higher than 5x.

It is possible to trigger the bonus game while in free spins mode, but the win multiplier will not apply to any bonus wins.

Bonus game – spin the wheel of fortune

When you have triggered the bonus game, a big wheel of fortune will appear on the screen. At first glance, this looks like one wheel of fortune, but closer inspection will reveal that it is actually three wheels.

You start by spinning the outermost wheel. If it stops at a number, you get a coin win and the bonus game is over. If it stops at an arrow instead, you get to continue to play by spinning the wheel that is found inside the outermost wheel. If this wheel stops at a number, you get a coin win and the bonus game is over. If it stops at a field with the word RAPID, you have won the Rapid Progressive Jackpot and the bonus game is over. If it stops at an arrow, you get to continue to play by spinning the innermost wheel.

If the innermost wheel stops at a number, you get a coin win and the bonus round is over. (The coin wins available in the innermost wheel are all large compared to the ones that can be won on the other two wheels.) If the innermost wheel stops at a field with the text MAJOR you have won the Major Progressive Jackpot and the bonus game is over. If the innermost wheel stops at the diamond crusted arrow, you proceed into the center of the Wheel of Fortune and collect your big MEGA PROGRESSIVE JACKPOT.

As you can see when you look at the Wheel of Fortune, you are guaranteed to win something once you have trigger the bonus game. It will either be a coin win or one of the three progressive jackpots.
