Review of Mega Fortune Jackpot Slot

Mega Fortune is one of the biggest progressive online jackpots in the world. It is a creation of the very well known casino game developer NetEnt and was released in 2009. This video slot held the Guinness World Record of the largest jackpot payout in an online slot machine. The payout was around 13 million pounds. The record was later beaten by Mega Moolah with a mere sixteen thousand pounds.

NetEnt pulled out all the stops in creating this full on jackpot game

Despite being “old” in terms of video slots, it is still a hugely popular slot, not without reason, and it does of course adapt very well to your handheld devices. Mega Fortune holds the key to all fortunes, NetEnt pulled out all the stops in creating this full on jackpot game which will no doubt make you want to win a jackpot.

The symbols featured are pure luxury, everything from diamond rings, to limousines, to expensive looking watches are featured on the reels and this of course entices us to play more because we want those things! If the pot doesn't feel big enough for you, take a look at the sequel Mega Fortune Dreams which is an upgraded version of this game and connected to another progressive jackpot. Usually one of the two boats, sorry, boasts a jackpot in the millions.

How to Play Mega Fortune

Mega Fortune can be played from your computer, mobile or tablet. It has 5 reels and 3 rows which gives you 25 paylines, which means altogether there are 25 ways in which you can win the big bucks and hopefully trigger the jackpot whilst you’re at it. Before you start spinning the reels though you should be sure to adjust your betting limits.

In order to do this you need to select the Bet Level button to adjust the number of coins you want to play with, and the Coin Value to select the value of the coins you wish to play (we will look into this further down). Finally, make sure you adjust the Bet Lines to set how many paylines you want to play on. Once you have selected all the important bits and bobs, you can go ahead and press the ‘spin’ button to start spinning those reels!

How Much to Bet?

Mega Fortune allows you to adjust the value of the coins played from £0.01 to £0.50, plus it allows you to adjust the wagering in four different levels of x1, x2, x3 or x4. This means that you can play with the lowest value coin of £0.01 on the 25 pay lines for a minimum of £0.25. The maximum bet on the other hand would be £50 per spin. The settings would then be with the highest coin value of £0.5 with wagering of x4 and on all paylines.

Not a bet for the faint hearted, we might say but you could also earn some bigger wins with the bigger bets. The chances of hitting the Mega Jackpot is directly correlated to your bet size, but NetEnt has never revealed the exact numbers. It is therefore impossible to tell what the optimum bet size is for hitting the jackpot in Mega Fortune. As with all jackpots, the chances are slim either way so don't chase it with reckless bets. If it hits it hits, and by golly you will know it if it does.


There is a grand selection of symbols in the Mega Fortune slot game as we previously touched on. The symbols, and their values arranged from lowest to the highest amounts are as follows:

  • Red Ring
  • Blue Ring
  • Yellow Ring
  • Green Ring

These are all are symbols with the lower pay-offs. The Brandy Glass and the Cigar followed by the folded Money Bill and Limousine pays a bit better. For instance the Red Ring pays 3, 10 or 75 coins, all depending on whether you get 3, 4 or 5 in a row. The Limousine however, gives up to 1000 coins if you manage to get 5 in a row. Another interesting symbol is the Wild symbol, represented by a Luxury Boat. This symbol works like a substitute (much like a joker in a deck of cards) for the previously mentioned basic symbols.

The Mega Fortune Jackpot

If you like the big wins, then you should keep an eye on the Mega Fortune Bonus symbols which will be waiting for you in the big jackpot wheel which is in the background of this exciting slot. If you happen to get three of these bad boys on your reels, then that is one mega step closer to the jackpot. When you get into the Bonus Jackpot game you will be greeted with a bedazzled wheel featuring the jackpot games. You must click on the ‘Spin’ button to begin spinning on the first wheel which is guaranteed to give you some fabulous prizes.

If you make it to the second inner wheel you will have the chance to win some even bigger and better prizes, and finally if you make it to the third and final Jackpot wheel, this will give you the chance to win the Jackpot. As you spin the final middle wheel keep an eye on the diamond arrow because this is the one which will trigger the Mega Jackpot! The chance of getting to the jackpot round is directly correlated with how much you bet in the game. Exactly how much the odds are improved is not very clear, but fear not, it is perfectly possible to win the jackpot on a lower bet too so don’t worry if you want to just give this slot a try with a few lower spins first, it all counts in the end.
