The Mega Fortune slot machine was launched by Net Entertainment in 2009. This slot is famous for having three progressive jackpots, including the big Mega Fortune Mega Jackpot. The Mega Fortune Mega Jackpot is a pooled jackpot (fed jointly by many online casinos) that starts at €1 million. In January 2013, Mega Fortune made headlines by paying out a €17,860,868 Mega Jackpot to a lucky Finnish player in Paf Casino. This is the largest progressive jackpot paid out in any online casino so far and it is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records.
The theme for Mega Fortune is a life of luxury. The reels are covered in high status symbols, such as limousines, yachts, fancy rings, champagne, cognac & cigars, and well-filled money clips.
A version of Mega Fortune adapted for mobile devices has been released by NetEnt. This version of the game is called Mega Fortune Touch. Your chances of winning are the same regardless of whether you play Mega Fortune or Mega Fortune Touch. Mega Fortune and Mega Fortune Touch feed the same progressive jackpots.

Betting on Mega Fortune
Mega Fortune is a flexible slot machine where you can adjust the coin value, decide how many paylines to bet on and decide how many coins (1-4) to bet per activated payline.
If you play Mega Fortune in Euro, the smallest possible coin value is €0.01 and the largest possible coin value is €0.50.
You decide freely how many paylines to bet on (activate), from 1 to 25.
You also set how many coins to bet per activated payline: 1 coin, 2 coins, 3 coins or 4 coins.
This means that the smallest possible bet is €0.01 x 1 payline x 1 coin = €0.01 per round. The largest possible bet is €0.50 x 25 paylines x 4 coins = €50 per round.
The Mega Fortune Mega Jackpot can only be won on a 100 coin bet. This is a bet where all 25 paylines are activated and 4 coins are wagered per paylines.
The yacht is a wild symbol. It is just a traditional wild symbol, it is not a Walking Wild, Expanding Wild, Sticky Wild, or similar.
The yacht can substitute for any symbol except for the scatter symbol (Champagne) and the bonus symbol (Wheel of Fortune).
The Mega Fortune scatter symbol depicts a bottle of champagne. You need a minimum of two scatter symbols, anywhere on the reels, to win a coin win. If you get three or more scatter symbols, anywhere on the reels, you win a coin win and trigger the free spins mode.
The wheel of fortune is a bonus symbol in Mega Fortune.
Three bonus symbols must line up from leftmost to right on an active payline to trigger the bonus game.
Free spins mode
As mentioned above, the free spins mode is triggered by three or more scatter symbols in the base game.
Once you have entered free spins mode, only two scatter symbols are required to receive additional free spins and/or a multiplier. Each time you get a new multiplier, it is added to your current multiplier level. The highest possible multiplier is 5x.
You can trigger the bonus game in free spins mode, but the multiplier will not apply to any wins within the bonus game.
Bonus game – this is where you can win a progressive jackpot
A big wheel of fortune will be displayed when you have triggered the Mega Fortune bonus game. This big wheel is actually comprised of three wheels.
- Spin the outermost wheel. Every other field contains a number and all the other fields contain an arrow. If the wheel stops at a number field, you win a coin win and the bonus game is over. (The smallest coin win for this wheel is 100 coins and the largest coin win is 300 coins.) If the wheel stops at an arrow field, you proceed to step 2.
- Spin the center wheel; the one located between the outermost and the innermost wheel. Most of the fields on this wheel are number fields, but there are also four arrow fields and one field that contains the word RAPID. If the wheel stops at a number field, you get a coin win and the bonus game is over. (The smallest coin win for this wheel is 300 coins and the largest coin win is 700 coins.) If the wheel stops at the RAPID field, you win the Mega Fortune Rapid Progressive Jackpot and the bonus game is over. If the wheel stops at any of the arrow fields, you proceed to step 3.
- Spin the innermost wheel. This wheel is small and only has twelve fields. Ten of them are number fields. (The smallest coin win for this wheel is 2,500 coins and the largest coin win is 7,500 coins.) One field contains the word MAJOR and one field contains a diamond studded arrow. If the wheel stops at a number field, you get a coin win and the bonus game is over. If the wheel stops at the MAJOR field, you win the Mega Fortune Major Progressive Jackpot and the bonus game is over. If the wheel stops at the arrow field, you get into the center and is awarded with the huge Mega Fortune Mega Jackpot!
