New Entertainment Software released the online pokies game, Mega Fortune, and players have been happy ever since. It is the owner of a huge jackpot, larger than many online games offer, of $26,302,519 in New Zealand dollars. That isn’t the only jackpot available either, though it did earn them a place in the Guinness World Records as the highest payout. This game definitely suits New Zealand high and low rollers fairly well, with options available for small to large bank rolls. This game offers 25-lines and a progressive jackpot, free spins and big prizes. The jackpots don’t take bet size into account either, as the person to win the record breaking jackpot had bet only $0.25 in the game.
Mega Fortune is all about the money when it comes to the features and bonuses that it offers to players. These features allow you to rack up quite the payout. The Boat symbol, or Wild Symbol, can take the place of any of the different symbols. However, this effect doesn’t work on scatter and bonus ones. If you score 5 of the Boat symbols in an active line, you can win 10,000 coins to a maximum of 40,000 coins. The Champagne symbol is the scatter, and it has an animation when it is part of a winning combination. The cork pops off, and the champagne pours out.
There is a Wheel symbol that triggers something called the Jackpot Wheel feature. This only happens when at least 3 of the Wheels are in a winning combination. There will be three wheels before you, each one with some arrows and prizes. You have to go through each of the three Jackpot Wheels, and you can win one of the 3 progressives or a consolation prize. The first wheel is the outer wheel, and you need to land on an arrow to pass to the second wheel. The second wheel offers a selection of arrows, prizes and a section with the Rapid Jackpot. Landing on the arrow lets you progress to the third and final wheel. The final wheel can give you either the major or mega jackpot.
You need three or more of the Champagne symbols to start the free spins bonus round. The round lets you choose a symbol to find out how many free spins you get and what your multiplier will be. Depending on your symbol, you will be given 1-5 multiplier and 5-20 free spins. When the free spins are going, if you land at least 2 scatter symbols, you can get an extra pick to win an additional multiplier or more free spins. The jackpot wheel feature can be scored during this game, but the multiplier doesn’t pass on to the jackpots.
Betting Options for New Zealands
New Zealand gamblers can make bets in their own currency, which can help a lot to know exactly how much you may be wagering. Mega Fortune offers gamblers the ability to choose between 6 coin sizes in denominations ranging from 0.01 to 0.5. This offers a maximum bet per spin of $50. With four different betting levels, you can customize the number of active paylines available in your online games. You can have anywhere from 1 to 25 paylines active during your game. Overall, the betting options are viable for any bank roll sizes around. Mega Fortune’s progressive jackpot offers high odds when the maximum bet is placed for each spin.
Win the Jackpot!
Mega Fortune offers three jackpots with the titles of Major, Rapid and Minor. The lowest paying jackpot is the rapid, which is valued at $700 New Zealand dollars. It is the smallest, yet easiest land jackpot in the online pokies game. Landing two of the Rapid symbols in the second section of the wheel can win you this jackpot. The mega jackpot is the largest one around, and is typically shared between online casinos as a whole. It is currently expected to pay $70,000. To win this, you need to land on an arrow for each of the three wheels during the jackpot game. The instant cash prizes can vary between $100 and $7500.
