Mega Fortune Dreams online slot is the successor to NetEnt’s wildly popular Mega fortune slot. The slot is themed around high-class luxury, and the 5x3 reel grid is superimposed over the image of a deck-view from a luxury yacht. The symbols all represent the trappings of finery and a loungey soundtrack that you might hear at a seaside resort helps to complete the overall mood. This title’s trio of progressive jackpots has earned it no small measure of fame with a total of 27 lucky players winning millions since the slot was launched in 2014. Bonus features include free spins with multipliers, as well as three progressive jackpot games which we will explain in detail further below.
Free spins are triggered when 3 or more diamond scatters appear on the reels. You will receive 10, 15 or 25 free spins for 3, 4 or 5 diamond scatters respectively. All wins that you achieve during free spins will benefit from a 3x multiplier. Landing more scatters while this feature is active, adds additional free spins and can increase the multiplier by 1x or 2x.
If 3 bonus wheel symbols line up on the reels, a 4-tiered bonus wheel with independently spinning concentric sections appears. The outer tier contains small cash prizes and arrow symbols. Landing on a cash amount returns you to the main game, while landing on an arrow leads you the next tier closer to the centre, with each of the successive tiers representing a different progressive jackpot. You will need to land 3 arrow symbols in a row to pass the outer ring as well as the rapid and major jackpot ring tiers to get to the Mega jackpot in the middle. All the jackpots are progressive and mega jackpot payouts appear to occur on an average of every 10 weeks or so.
The rapid jackpot is a local progressive jackpot and pays out around $800. The major and Mega jackpot are both pooled progressive jackpots and average payouts of around $75 000 and $3.7 million respectively.
The best part of this bonus feature is that any size bet can trigger it!
27 lucky winners have hit the Mega Jackpot since the game’s launch back in 2014. The average win amount is around $4 million with the slot’s highest recorded jackpot win coming in at just over $6 million in July 2017. Notable wins in 2019 were both recorded in March – one lucky punter won €3,542,863 and later that month a 65-year old woman landed €4,333,667.97 after staking just €4 on a round of spins at Betsson’s online casino.
Mega Fortunes Dream slot is a combination of a solid, rewarding base game and an exhilarating progressive jackpot bonus feature. The aspirational theme of the game puts you in the right frame of mind to chase after the slot’s numerous rewards. The base game has the potential to make you a tidy sum of 8400x your stake if you manage to dominate during free spins.
The bonus wheel offers a minute but very real chance of becoming an instant multi-millionaire.
The game’s medium volatility means that you won’t be afflicted by death-by-spins and your proximity to real riches is often very close. This title has a lot to offer, straddling the preferences of casual gamblers and jackpot hounds. It is definitely worth a spin for anyone looking to lead a life of luxury.
