Mega Fortune Free spins in New Zealand
Mega Fortune Dreams is a 5-reel, 3-row, 20-line video pokie featuring Wild substitutions, Free Spins with multipliers, re-spins and a triple progressive jackpot Bonus Game which gives you loads of chances to win big! The Jackpot Bonus Games features 3 wheels, and 3 progressive jackpots.
Powered by Net Entertainment, one of the most respectable software developers in the industry, Mega Fortune might not guarantee a win but it definitely guarantees a fun gaming experience – and big dreams. The crisp graphics of Mega Fortune live up to the NetEnt reputation and the wild, scatter, and bonus symbols keep things interesting.
Until recently, Kiwis weren’t able to partake in NetEnt pokies, but all that has changed. The NetEnt bonus list for Kiwis is growing by the day, giving Kiwis the chance to play games like Starburst, Gonzo’s Quest, Vikings, and best of all, Mega Fortune.
Plenty of Chances to Win Big
Similar to Microgaming’s Mega Moolah, Mega Fortune is a progressive jackpot that gives players the chance to win bigger than ever. Just like Moolah, this pokie features 5 reels, 3 symbols per reel, and 25 paylines. The winning potential doesn’t only depend on the size of the bet place, but also the number of bets placed by fellow players.
Here are a few more basic Mega Fortune facts to help you start spinning:
- Payout percentage: 96.6%
- Minimum coin size: 0.01
- Maximum coin size: 0.5
- Minimum bet in coins: 1 per payline
- Maximum bet in coins: 4 per payline
- Minimum CAD bet: $0.25
- Maximum CAD bet: $50
How to Play the Mega Fortune Pokie
Figuring out the ropes of Mega Fortune is pretty easy. You are required to set your bet before you spin, choose the number of desired paylines to keep active, and establish the bet size per payline. Then simply hit “Spin” and the reels will start moving.
Mega Fortune Pokie Symbols
All the symbols on Mega Fortune scream of luxuriousness, there’s even one that’s just a big ol’ pile of cash. Other symbols include a blinged-out watch, glass of brandy, cigar, credit card, fancy car, yacht, and the traditional low value Jack to Ace symbols.
The yacht serves as the wild, so it can replace any symbol other than the bonus and scatter symbols. Scatter is represented by a bottle of champagne and 2 champagne flutes and bonus is a wheel of fortune symbol. The bonus symbol is what you should be looking for if you’re hoping to win the jackpot.
Bonus Rounds and Free Spins
The free spins feature of Mega Fortune happens when 3 or more scatter symbols land on the reels. Three scatters and you’ll receive 14 times your original bet, 4 scatters earns you 20x, and 5 gets you a whopping 40x the original bet. These high payouts are a major reason that Mega Fortune is known as one of the best real money pokies.
Mega Fortune Progressive Jackpots
The most exciting aspect of Mega Fortune is that it does indeed have progressive jackpot rounds, 3 to be exact. You might think it’s impossible to get to the third jackpot round, the one that makes people multi-millionaires, let alone win it. But it’s not impossible at all; in fact, there have been several Kiwis in the past to win a fortune (no pun intended).
The chance to win a jackpot round is activated when you land on 3 bonus symbols on an active payline. This enters you into the first jackpot round, where you could win cash or move. The jackpots get progressively larger from one round to the next, here’s the order they are played:
- Rapid Jackpot
- Major Jackpot
- Mega Jackpot
The smallest of the three, Rapid, is a relatively low jackpot but it is won on a daily basis and still gives you the chance to take home a few thousand bucks. Major is the next level and you’re looking at $100,000 or more if you play your cards – or pokies – right. The real bread winner though is the Mega jackpot. It starts at $250,000 but just increases every time a player spins. The biggest win in the history of Mega Fortune was over 17 million Euros, enough money to never work another day in your life.
Spinning the Wheels of Fortune
The “Wheel of Fortune” bonus round involves 3 spinning wheels, each one representing its own jackpot. The first wheel is composed of segments containing both cash amounts and arrows. If you land on a cash amount, that’s what you win and the game is over. But if you land on an arrow, things just go more exciting.
The second wheel works the same, but the cash prizes are higher and there are fewer arrows leading to the next jackpot. On the third and final wheel there are 12 wheel portions, 10 of them containing cash prizes from 2,500 to 7,500 coins, one containing a Major Jackpot symbol, and one containing, you guessed it, the MEGA jackpot.
Strategic Tips for Playing Mega Fortune
Before you even have the chance to win on the jackpot rounds, you need to make it there. Try not to focus solely on the jackpot rounds since you can actually win big on the normal spinning. Like the wild yacht symbol, which is the highest paying symbol in the game. You’ll get 10,000 coins if you’re lucky enough to land on 5 wilds in a row.
Of course the goal is to win a jackpot round, ideally the Mega. There is no foolproof way to win, but there a few strategies that could up your odds. The first thing to remember is that the more bets you make, the better your chance of getting to the jackpot rounds. So if your goal is to get to the big money round, keep placing those bets.
To maximize your chance of winning even further, here are a few strategic tips:
- Use your bonus cash from casinos like Jonny Jackpot or Wildz. You won’t necessarily be given Mega Fortune free spins outright, but you can use your bonus cash towards the game.
- Bet the maximum. Most pokies have a “Max Bet” option for a reason, so use it. When you bet the maximum you are upping your chances of getting to the jackpot. Even if you don’t, you are at least helping the jackpot to grow in size.
- Study the paytable. Before you even start spinning, examine the paytable closely to understand which symbols are highest in value and which ones will get you to the bonus rounds. Progressives don’t let you practice spinning for free, so study up before you get started.
Play Fortune on Mobile
The beauty of Mega Fortune is not just that you could potentially win millions, but that you can do so from your mobile device. A lot of players are saying that the mobile version of the game is just as good as the desktop version. Just because you’re playing from your phone doesn’t mean you need to lose out on graphics, sound quality, and winning chances.
Like other NetEnt games, Mega Fortune can be played from iOS, Android, Windows, and Blackberry devices. You’d be surprised how many big winners got there by spinning the reels from a phone or tablet while out-and-about for the day.
Mega Fortune Winners
The majority of Mega Fortune winners up until recently have been European. The first ever winner of the game took home nearly 4 million Euros, the next took home 4.4 million. But nobody outwins the Finish player who won the massive jackpot of 17.8 million back in 2013.
The winning numbers haven’t been quite as high for Kiwis because of the newness of the game, but the potential to win million of NZD is just as high. Winning millions happens on the Mega jackpot, but you can still win big in the usual way by landing consecutive symbols from left to right on a pay line.
