If you’ve played any online slot before… there’s a good chance you’ll have seen Net Entertainment’s “Mega Fortune” slot shoved down your throat, whether it be by the online casinos themselves, or by players talking on forums about the jackpot potential. Funnily enough, Mega Fortune offers players the chance to win huge sums of money, with progressive jackpot totals reaching upwards of £8 Million!
Thanks to the games popularity, Net Entertainment decided to release a “revamped” version, and it’s called Mega Fortune Dreams. While it would be hard to ever top the class, enjoyment-factor, and reliability of the original, Net Entertainment have done a superb job with Mega Fortune Dreams, and it offers the same great jackpot selection, alongside bonus features that make even the most well-versed slot player lick their lips in anticipation.
The game itself is fairly similar to the original, but the first big difference is with the games design. Unlike the original, Mega Fortune Dreams has a pretty decent look to it, with the background set on a luxury yacht, with various fruits and cocktails lining the ship’s deck.
The main symbols are relatively similar, and include the lower-paying playing card symbols, including 10, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace, as well as high-paying symbols, which include a Cocktail Glass, Champagne Bottles, an expensive-looking Handbag, and a Diamond Ring.
The wild symbol is two pal trees, with the scatter symbol depicted with a larger diamond, above the word “scatter”. There’s also a bonus symbol, which is simple a bonus wheel, above the word “bonus”.
If you land three, four, or five of the Diamond scatter symbols, you’ll be awarded free-spins; you’ll get either ten, fifteen, or twenty free-spins, depending on how many scatter symbols you land, and during the free-spins, all your wins will be subject to a 3X multiplier, giving great shots at high payouts. Land more scatter symbols, however, and things start to get really interesting.
When you land additional scatter symbols (two or more), you get to pick one of them, and this will either award extra free-spins, or an additional multiplier, which gets added to your 3X multiplier for the remainder of the spins. You can increase the multiplier to a total of 10X, and it’s worth noting that the scatter symbol picks can be both free-spins and multiplier increases.
The main appeal of Mega Fortune Dreams (and certainly the reason “Mega Fortune” became so popular), is thanks to the progressive jackpot. In order to have a chance of winning this life-changing amount of money, you need to land three or more of the bonus scatter symbols, anywhere on the last three reels. You’ll then be taken to the bonus wheel, and you’ll see that this reel contains three rings.
You start on the outer ring, and must spin the wheel with the hope of moving in, towards the centre of the wheel. If you manage it into the centre, you’ll win the main jackpot, but all outer reels contain cash prizes, as well as the two smaller jackpots, so even the outer-most ring gives you the chance to win hundreds, or thousands of pounds.
