Fortunium Gold Mega Moolah Slot Review

The whole thing behind steampunk is that it’s retro-futuristic. Yeah, I know how that sounds, but think of it more like a reimagining of things from the perspective of a bygone era.

Which led me to think: that’s not so different from those weirdos called Futurists. I mean, these are “social scientists” – whatever the hell that means – who get paid to dream up stuff.

I’ll bet a large portion of their budget goes towards Wacky Baccy. Hey, wait a minute?! I think I missed my calling! Where do I sign up?

This is Fortunium Gold Mega Moolah slot by Microgaming.

Gameplay

This steampunk-themed game is something to behold.

However, if compared against its precursor, Fortunium slot, you’ll notice that they’re not all that dissimilar. If you haven’t played the original version then you won’t be disappointed but yeah, it’s just a tweak on an existing design with added mechanisms.

Still, it's all glorious detail from the symbols to the background, so you can’t help being impressed.

Unfortunately, Fortunium Gold Mega Moolah slot has an RTP of only 92.8% but that’s no doubt the result of the Progressive Jackpot. It has a medium volatility, and the bet limits €start at 0.10 and end at €15.

Features

Progressive Jackpots are the name of the game here and the way to win em is to spin the Jackpot wheel.

The Mega Moolah Jackpot Bonus happens when a Mystery symbol – which appears in the form of a question mark and lands in a stacked formation – reveals a Jackpot Wild.

Now you’ll be shuttled off to a new screen where you’ll see a Wheel of Fortune type mechanism. This is where you could clinch either a Mini, Minor, Major, or Mega Jackpot.

The Jackpot Bonus can happen during the base game or the Free Spins round. Enticing you to spend more is the fact that higher bets increase your chance of revealing a Jackpot Wild.

To the left of the grid, you would’ve noticed the Win Booster. By clicking on that, you’ll also activate the Mystery symbols but it’ll cost you 50% of your stake. Now, Mystery symbols will only transform into high-paying symbols or Wilds.

Land 3 or more Scatters – they look like blue/green orbs in a golden, circular frame – and you’ll be in the Free Spins round. You’ll be awarded 10 of these and then you’ll see Mystery symbols on reels 2-4. Five Scatters gets you 3 Mystery Reels, 4 Scatters awards 2, while 3 Scatters equals 1 Mystery Reel.

Performance

As slick as its design, Fortunium Gold Mega Moolah slot exhibited no issues when played on a variety of devices or browsers.

Max Win

Prepare for a shock – the multiplier for this game is only 800x, which means the max win for the base game is €12,000. However, there’s no set limit for the Mega Jackpot so presumably it’ll be in the millions.

Conclusion

It’s just a glorious game to look at and engage with, and the Progressive Jackpot is of course the clincher. So, on that note…

I hit a Free Spins round quite soon into my gameplay and within 3 spins, I cracked the Jackpot Wheel. Make no bones about it, this only happened because I was bet at the max.

OK, but steady yourself because when the wheel came to a halt, I’d missed the Mega Jackpot by 1. BY ONE LOUSY POSITION! Aaaaaarrrrgggghhh!

And that’s what it’s all about. The adrenaline-filled experience of playing Fortunium Gold Mega Moolah slot will see you coming back for more – just one more chance at that wheel.

It’s decidedly addictive in the best sense.
