When it comes to generous jackpots, there are few slots that can compete with Mega Fortune. In fact, when you look at the numbers and put this game head-to-head against its peers, Mega Fortune is the second most impressive title in the industry when it comes to payouts. Over the years, the game has not only paid out dozens of jackpots worth in excess of £1 million, it’s second only to Mega Moolah when it comes to largest single payouts of all time.
OK, so how big is big? Well, in 2013, a Norwegian player won just short of £16 million playing Mega Fortune. At the time, that was a world record and, today, it’s still among the top five leading online casino payouts in history. If that’s not enough to tempt you into trying this NetEnt gem, stick with us for the next few minutes and we’ll reel off a few more reasons why you’ll want to spin this popular progressive slot.

Mega Fortune has five reels and 25 paylines. To set the game in motion and shoot for fixed prizes ranging from 3x to 10,000x your line bet, you’ll need to stake between £0.25 and £50. Adjusting your bet is as simple as touching the coin value option and moving it between £0.01 and £0.50. Once you’ve done that, the coin level can be cranked up from one to four, which basically means you’re adding more coins to a single payline.
After everything is set, the game comes alive when you touch the spin button or spin downwards on your mobile screen. As you’d expect, Mega Fortune has a theme and, in this instance, the designers invite you to lose yourself in the high life. This means you’ll see fancy watches, speedboats, champagne and all manner of luxury items spin through the glitzy waterfront setting.
When it comes to special features, Mega Fortune doesn’t offer as many clever mini-games and tricks as the average video slot. The reason for this is because it’s a progressive jackpot slot, so giant payouts are more important that fancy features. However, that doesn’t mean you’ll just be spinning five reels and waiting for three or more symbols to line up from left to right.
As ever, wilds (speed boats) are there to substitute for all symbols except the scatter and that means you’ll have more ways to win when these are in view. Additionally, if you roll in between two and five scatters, you’ll win anything from 2x to 10,000x your line bet. If that wasn’t enough, three more scatters (the champagne), will pay out an instant win worth between 3x and 10x your total bet, as well as some free spins. The maximum number of gratis turns is 10 and each free spin bonus will be backed with a multiplier worth up to 5x.
Mega Fortune is an industry veteran and that means any little kinks and bugs have been worked out a long time ago. During our 30-minute test, we didn’t encounter any issues. In fact, playing via Android is actually slicker than the desktop version as swiping feels more intuitive.
The main reason you’ll want to play Mega Fortune is its progressive jackpots. Now, in this game, there are actually three progressive jackpots and you can unlock them by rolling in three bonus wheel symbols. By unlocking the bonus round, you’ll be shown a wheel with three parts that contain varying amounts of cash.
Once you hit the spin button, the outer wheel will turn. If you hit a cash prize, the funds are added to your account and it’s back to the main game. If you hit an arrow, you move into the inner wheel for a second spin. At this point, it’s the same process and a second arrow will take you to the third wheel where you can win one of three jackpots, including the Mega Jackpot worth upwards of £1 million.
When you want to play for massive jackpots, there are few slots that can compete with Mega Fortune. Although it might not be endowed with a myriad of intricate bonuses and mini-games, the fact you can win more than £1 million and, possibly, as much as £16 million from a single spin makes this a game that everyone should try.
