Mega Fortune Progressive Slot Review
Netent’s Mega Fortune Slot is one of the most popular online progressive slots out there; It’s classic, easy to play and offers a multi-million jackpot which once dished out an eye watering £17 Million in prize money to a Finnish casino player.
How To Play Mega Fortune Slot
Mega Fortune Slot is an easy slot to play, and to us, is a classic. It was launched in 2009 by Netent, and is designed with 5 reels and 25 pay lines. You can play Mega Fortune Slot from as little as 25p per spin, up to £50 per spin.
Load the game and you’ll instantly see what this game is all about. With a name like ‘Mega Fortune’ it’s of course about wealth, glamour and glitzy... very ‘Jet set’.
The backdrop of Mega Fortune could be set in Hollywood, or be the lights of Monte Carlo. On the reels, you’ll see icons depicting wealth, including Champagne bottles and glasses, expensive watches, Motorboats, diamond cufflinks and also luxury cars.
Mega Fortune is a little bit 'retro', we admit, but this is due to it being a first generation Netent Slot. Take the soundtrack for instance, it’s quite cheesy. But put it all together and you have a wonderful, classic slot which is timeless and offers a multi-million jackpot!
Mega Fortune Slot has an RTP of 96.6% which is slightly above average of most Netent slots, and is considered mid-variance too, which means that Mega Fortune will give you the chance see regular wins which can literally be from hundreds, to thousands – to millions!
