The Mega Fortune Dreams online video slot is literally themed after a dreamers' world. Diamond rings, gold watches, chilled champagne in a bucket, palm trees, a purse to die for, all laid on a background that looks like a private yacht cruising the high seas somewhere exotic. MFD (Mega Fortune Dreams) was NetEnt's idea of improving on their previous show stopper, Mega Fortune (MF), and they really outdid themselves this time!
One thing you notice right from the moment MFD loads is that the graphics are an obvious upswing (from Mega Fortune), but the three Jackpots (Rapid, Major, & Mega), the bonuses, and the RTP (Return to Player) payout ratio (at 96.4%) remained the same. Add 20 paylines running across 3 rows on 5 reels and it becomes clear why MFD is one of the world's most popular (and lucrative) progressive Jackpots when it comes to online video slot machines.
Mega Fortune Dreams Symbols
As mentioned earlier, animated graphics on the Mega Fortune Dreams online slot are exquisitely designed and the luxurious symbols used are tweaked and refined from the original Mega Fortune video slot; guaranteed to keep any punter glued on their screen (and focused on their dreams), spinning for hours.
Wild: The Wild symbol in Mega Fortune Dreams is represented by (two) swaying palm trees. The Wild replaces all other symbols - except the Scatter or the Bonus Wheel - to complete a winning combination on any of the 20 paylines or on multiple paylines. Hit 3 or more Wilds during regular play (or Free Spin Mode) and you get 1 free re-spin. All winning combinations that include a Wild symbol (or symbols) are awarded a (x10) multiplier on the wager placed when the win is triggered.
Scatter: MFD's scatter symbol is represented by a gigantuous diamond that would make any woman melt into a sorry mass of goo! Hit 3 or more of these huge spinning diamonds and you're awarded free spins.
Bonus: The wheel of fortune symbol represents the bonus feature in Mega Fortune Dreams. Triggering the Bonus Game round requires you to hit 3 or more bonus symbols. Punters can win a specific coin amount or play for any of the 3 Jackpots during the bonus game round.
High Paying Symbols: There are a few high paying symbols which include a diamond ring, a stylish purse, a gold watch, 2 bottles of bubbly in an ice bucket, and a glass of cocktail.
Low Paying Symbols: The low paying symbols are represented by card numbers/letters: A, 10, J, Q, and K. Each number of symbol/character combinations (3, 4, or 5) has a different multiplier as shown on the paytable.
Mega Fortune Dreams Gameplay
Playing Mega Fortune Dreams is both fun and "dreamy". The 3-row, 5-reel online video slot comes with 20 fixed bet lines that offer online punters the chance to win "mega cash loads" through a myriad of bonuses, re-spins, Wild substitutions, Free Spins, 3 Jackpot prizes, and amazing multipliers.
Base Game Play: The spinning part is, of course, nothing new to online video slot players and the symbols form winning combinations from left to right according to the fixed paylines.
Placing Wagers: Coin values range from 0.01 to 1 and there are 4 levels (1-4) which means the minimum bet and maximum bet range from €0.20 to €80 per spin.
0.01 (min coin value) * 1 (lowest level) * 20 (bet lines) = €0.20
1 (max coin value) * 4 (highest level) * 20 (fixed paylines) = €80
Multipliers to placed bets are awarded according to the fixed bet lines for combinations of 3, 4, and 5 symbols on any payline. This basically means that since the diamond ring is the highest paying symbol, hitting 5 symbols (in a winning bet line) on the minimum wager of €0.20 will win you €20. A similar winning combination on the max bet of €80 will win you €8, 000!
Mega Fortune Dreams Bonuses and Jackpot(s)
MFD is best known for it's awesome bonuses that come in the form of re-spins, Free Spins, and ultimately, the 3 Jackpot prizes. Landing 3 or more special symbols (wild, scatter, or bonus) wins you the chance to enjoy any of the offered bonuses. For instance, 3 Wild symbols appearing anywhere on the 3 rows - across the 5 reels - during regular play will award you a single re-spin for free. On the other hand, hitting 3 or more Scatter symbols on the base game gets you either a cash prize, or opens the gateway to the Free Spin Mode.
- 3 Scatters = 10 free spins
- 4 Scatters = 15 free spins
- 5 Scatters = 20 free spins
The most amazing thing about playing the Free Spin bonus round is that in addition to the x3 multiplier on all wins, Wilds can still get you extra free re-spins and Scatters can either award you cash prizes, or increase the multiplier by x1 or x2. This means your multiplier during the Free Spin Mode can jump from x3 to x4 or x5 and increase up to a maximum of x10!
Winning the Mega Fortune Dreams Jackpot
The MFD Jackpot prizes are divided into 3 categories; the Rapid Jackpot, the Major Jackpot, and the motherload, the Mega Jackpot. Opening the Jackpot "Wheel of fortune" bonus round requires you to hit 3 or more Bonus Symbols. The 3-layered Wheel of Fortune starts with the outermost ring which has 36 partitions each labeled with either a coin value (100, 200, 300) or an arrow pointing towards the inner ring. This second ring with 24 partitions offers you the chance to land more coin values (300, 500, 700), an arrow pointing to the third ring, or the Rapid jackpot. On the third ring you have the chance to win coin values (2500, 5000, 7500), the Major Jackpot, or an arrow pointing to the center, the Mega Jackpot!
Please Note: Coin amounts displayed on the Wheel of Fortune during each Jackpot bonus round depend on the size of wager placed. For instance, going by our example above, a lower bet would probably have triggered a Wheel of Fortune with lower coin amounts such as 20, 40, 60 for the first (outermost) ring, 60, 100, 140 for the second ring, and the innermost ring would have 500, 1000, and 1500 as coin values. The chances of hitting the Jackpot however remain the same either way.
FYI: You have a 50% chance of hitting an arrow on the first ring, 16.67% chance of landing an arrow on the second ring or an 8.33% chance of hitting the Rapid Jackpot, 8.33% chance of landing on the Major Jackpot or an 8.33% chance of hitting the final arrow pointing to the Mega Jackpot!
