Mega Fortune Dreams
Current Jackpot: €1,352,054
If you know anything about progressive slots or have been playing progressive slots before, you will probably know all about Mega Dreams from NetEnt. That progressive slot has gone down in the record books for producing some of the largest ever payouts with some being more than 10 million on occasions.
It was always going to be a smart move for NetEnt to either bring out a sequel to that progressive slot or at least update the original to keep up with the times and it seems like they have done a bit of both with Mega Fortune Dreams.
Free spins, respins, wild symbols and a bonus game are just some of the game features to expect alongside the three different progressive jackpots that can be won on Mega Fortune Dreams.
Mega Fortune is a 5-reel, 20-payline slot that has a very competitive RTP of 95.90% and is considered to be a medium variance slot that pays out decent amounts at a fairly reasonable rate. This is a slightly higher variance to that of the original title but this should not affect the similarities too much.
If you have played the original Mega Fortune you will need much of an introduction or guidance on how to play this slot. It really is very similar apart from a change in the reel format now having 20-paylines instead of 25.
You are still tasked with creating winning combinations from left to right and hopefully finding some of the games bonus features in order to give you another method of scooping up some wins. In fact, these are a must if you have designs on those progressive jackpots.
The theme is the same once again, as you are teased with the sort of life that you could have if you do take down the largest progressive jackpot on Mega Fortune Dreams. Everywhere you look there is a reminder of what the good life can bring with expensive jewels, watches and other lavish items.
The action might seem a tiny bit slower on this version as the variance has increased slightly to be a medium variance slot instead of a low variance slot. All this means is the wins will be bigger on average compared to the original but will come around a little less frequently.
Graphics and Sound
The original Mega Fortune was starting to look a little bit dated it has to be said and despite still being hugely popular at the online casinos, we feel it was a good idea by NetEnt to give it a kind of makeover and an update in graphics.
Mega Fortune Dreams provides just that as the graphics have certainly been updated and made to run smoother and look crisper. The actual symbols have also been updated and drawn in a higher resolution in order to give the slot a fresh new feel.
The animations and the game’s interface have also seen improvements and these both look so much better now. Likewise, the sound effects and soundtrack have definitely improved from the original.
Base Game Symbols
As in the original Mega Fortune, the symbols on the reels consist of some rather expensive looking items. There is a diamond ring, expensive watch, designer purse, a bucket of champagne and a glass of what we assume to be the same champagne.
That diamond ring is where the best payouts can be found and will be the base game symbol you will want to see the most on the reels. If you land it five times in a winning combination, you are looking at 2,000 coins as your reward while four and three times respectively, will bring rewards of 200 and 40 coins.
Some blinged up playing card symbols are the remaining symbols on the reels and while these will bring payouts from the lower end of the spectrum, they will still be more than welcome when they form winning combinations on the reels.
Wild symbols are the first feature that we will take you through on Mega Fortune Dreams and the symbol with the trees and the word ‘wild’ is what represents them.
If you ever see a wild symbol on the reels, it will substitute for other symbols on the reels apart from the other bonus symbols on this slot. When it does this it will help to create winning combinations and sometimes multiple winning combinations across multiple lines.
These wild symbols can appear in the base game, the free spins round and during any respins that are activated during that round.
Wild symbols are also worth some payouts if they are found three or more time on the same win line too, as they will payout 50, 500 and 5,000 coins depending on if they are found three, four or five times on an active payline respectively.
A last little twist to these wild symbols is that finding them 3 or more times anywhere on the reels and not in a payline will award the player a respin of the reels with those wild symbols locked into position.
Scatter Symbols & Free Spins
The scatter symbols on Mega Fortune Dreams are where you can unlock another bonus feature which is the free spins round. You will need to find three or more of these symbols in view on the reels in order to win up to 20 free spins.
Three scatters will give you ten free spins, four will give you fifteen and the full five is where you can get that full quota of twenty free spins.
All of these free spins will have a 3x multiplier attached to any wins to give players triple the payouts they would normally get from them in the base game. Furthermore, any additional scatter symbols that you find during the free spins round will either increase that multiplier by one or two or will give one, two or three additional free spins.
The multiplier in this round can potentially grow to as high as 10x, so you can just imagine the payouts that could be available.
Bonus Round & Progressive Jackpot
If you have ever played the original mega Fortune by NetEnt, you will probably already know about this bonus round and how it is the gateway to the three different progressive payouts available. It is exactly the same on Mega Fortune Dreams apart from a few changes with regards to the cash prizes that are on offer.
Once you have unlocked this Wheel of Fortune style bonus round by landing at least three bonus symbols on the 3rd, 4th and 5th reels, you are taken to a fresh screen that shows the wheel of fortune.
This wheel is essentially three wheels in one with each one representing a different layer. You get one spin of the outer wheel and will either land on a random cash payout or on an arrow that will send you to the next wheel/level. There you will find better cash prizes, the chance at winning the Rapid progressive jackpot or once again, arrows that will send you to the next wheel.
Should you make it to that last wheel, you will get another spin and will have a chance at winning further improved cash payouts, the Major progressive jackpot or hit an arrow which will send you to the middle and win you the mega progressive jackpot.
Sticking with a similar betting format to the original, Mega Fortune Dreams is a fixed-payline slot that makes betting extremely simple. Players can bet coin values of between 0.01 and 1.00 and can place between one and four coins on each of the paylines. This gives an overall betting range of between 0.20 and 80.00 per spin of the reels.
Admittedly, this is not the largest betting range and even the original offered a larger one due to having an additional five lines. However, with the potential of some big prizes and jackpots to win, we feel that there is still plenty of room for players with budgets of all sizes to enjoy this progressive slot.
Why Play Mega Fortune Dreams
We loved the original Mega Fortune and we love the new and improved version of Mega Fortune Dreams as well. Whether this one goes on to break records like the original is still unclear but the fact that it now looks sharper, has some better bonus features and has still kept those impressive progressive jackpots, will certainly appeal to gamblers at the online casinos.
Another great benefit that can be attributed to this slot is that it is mobile-friendly and can be enjoyed on practically any mobile device. It does not matter if you are running iOS or Android, this progressive slot should work seamlessly on your device.
Just like the original, Mega Fortune Dreams earns our seal of approval and will no doubt do the same for most of you that love playing at progressive slots – go check it out if you haven’t done already!
