Mega Fortune Dreams (NetEnt): Review
So, how does it sound to enhance the type of feeling that Mega Fortune gives to you? Perhaps you don’t think that’s possible, but you’d be wrong. Mega Fortune Dreams from Netent is here to provide you with even more imagery of how life could be with a massive progressive jackpot win. Sparkling diamonds, your own uninhabited island, designer purses, champagne on ice for breakfast – it could all be yours. All you need to do is ensure that you’re on the receiving end of a Mega Jackpot win. And with Mega Fortune Dreams, that dream is kept alive.
The game utilises much of the same layout that video slots are known for, consisting of 5 reels and 3 rows accompanied by a total of 20 fixed paylines. Compatible with the iOS, Android and Windows operating systems, you can play Mega Fortune Dreams from 0.20 up to €/£80 per spin. Worth nothing is that, while it has been proven possible to trigger progressives on low bets, your chances of doing so increases with your bet size.
Obviously, with this being a NetEnt slot, the graphics can’t be faulted in any way. With the background of the game taking you on board the deck of a luxury yacht, symbols on the reels include diamond-studded 10 to A playing card additions. Then comes the symbol of a cocktail, followed by an ice bucket with a bottle of champagne in it. A crystal-studded purse comes next, while a top-quality watch can also be seen as a symbol. The diamond ring is the highest paying one though, offering maximum payouts of 100 times your stake for a five of a kind combination.
Mega Fortune Dreams (NetEnt): Features
The first, and most obvious, feature showing up on the reels of Mega Fortune Dreams, is the wild symbol. This is represented by the image of palm trees, and as a wild symbol, it is able to substitute for all other standard symbols on the reels, assisting you with forming winning combinations. The wild is able to show up on any reel during the main game, during re-spins and during free spins. This one can provide you with 250 times your stake should five of them appear on a winning payline. Another perk that the wild symbols provides, is that if three or more of them show up on the reels anywhere, a single Re-Spin is triggered. Wilds will remain in position for this, too.
Make sure that you keep an eye out for the appearance of the huge diamond symbols. This is the scatter symbol which will grant you access to the Free Spins round with 10, 15 or 25 spins if you land 3, 4 or 5 of them respectively. Once in, the round begins with a triple multiplier in effect. After this, any scatter showing up during free spins will increase that multiplier by 1 or 2, or alternatively, will award you with up to 3 more free spins.
Finally, there’s the inclusion of the Bonus Game, which can lead to progressive jackpot wins. To activate this, you need to spin 3 or more of the bonus wheel symbol into view anywhere on the last three reels. This will then present you with a huge wheel, consisting of three separate wheels which you need to spin. Each one has arrows on, as well as coin wins. The second and third ones also include jackpot wins, and if you reach the very center, you’ll win the game’s Mega Jackpot! In more detail, these are the available jackpots:
- Rapid - a local jackpot paid out by the casino. The expected jackpot value of the Rapid jackpot is €800 and the odds of triggering it while in the bonus game is 9.28% at max bet.
- Major - a pooled progressive jackpot paid out by NetEnt. The expected jackpot value of the Major jackpot is €75,000 and the odds of triggering it while in the bonus game is 0.0928% at max bet.
- Mega - a pooled progressive jackpot paid out by NetEnt. The expected jackpot value of the Mega jackpot is €3,750,000 and the odds of triggering it while in the bonus game is 0.0102% at max bet.
The Mega Fortune Dreams slot has already made big winners out of a few people. The biggest jackpot win came in July of 2017, when a lucky gamer got his hands on €5,050,845. This just beat out a player from Finland, who scooped €5,050,957 in 2015. Other than these, the biggest wins were €4,645,001 and €4,628,064 in 2018 and 2015, respectively.
Mega Fortune Dreams (Netent): Verdict
It’s quite obvious to see why Mega Fortune Dreams has such appeal. Not only is it a progressive jackpot slot with several record-breaking jackpots under its belt, but it also contains some impressive standard features alongside. Join all that up with the fact that NetEnt has included its usual range of top-quality graphics into the slot and you’ve definitely got something special.
The highest possible win from playing Mega Fortune Dreams, not including the progressive jackpots on offer, is 8,400 times your stake. If that isn’t a big enough attraction to make you want to spin its reels, there's, of course, the progressive's to hope for (which is the reason most people will play it anyway). When you consider everything that the slot contains, it really does make for a great addition to the NetEnt catalogue of games.
Bigger, better and hotter than its predecessor, Mega Fortune Dreams is simply one of the best progressive jackpot games ever created.
