Fortunium Gold Mega Review
The original iteration of Fortunium was released in 2018 and was hugely successful. Featuring a steampunk theme, a 5×5 reel format and some stunning features, the title is back with a hot new addition that seriously ramps up the stakes: the Mega Moolah jackpot. Apart from this, it comes along with a host of fun features such as Mystery symbols and stacked Wilds and great design.
We’ll go through the game features, theme and general playability below.
Euro Palace Casino offers Fortunium Gold Mega Moolah and hundreds of other quality games as well as a generous welcome offer and loyalty programme.
If you choose to create an account or are already an existing member, to start up the game, simply type the name into the search bar. This will initially open a loading screen with a brief description of the features. Click to continue to the main game.
Once you’re in, the options for autoplay, bet size and the menu will be on the right-hand side. You can select the menu to find the paytable if you’d like to familiarise yourself with the symbols and paylines.
Theme and Symbols
The steampunk theme is carried out well through the design. The Victorian buildings, cogs, gears and colours are really well rendered, and the exciting soundtrack enhances the mood. Even the jackpot wheel has been given a steampunk makeover, with chrome colours and gears.
In terms of symbols, the Scatter is the green gem and landing 3 or more of these will trigger 10 Free Spins with Mystery Reels™ on reels 2, 3 or 4. The more Scatters you land, the more Mystery Reels™ will be awarded. These contain only Mystery symbols.
The Mystery symbols (question marks) are stacked and can reveal Wilds or any other low or high symbols. Victoria and Maximillian (the main characters in the game) are stacked 5 reels high and all other high and low symbols are double-stacked. The other symbols in the game include the treasure chest, blimp, revolver and card suits.
Win Booster™ is a great addition, and activating it will boost your Mystery symbols by removing the chance for the Mystery symbols to reveal low symbols. Boosting does increase your total bet by 50%, but gives you a greater chance to land higher-paying winning combinations.
The Free Spins round is triggered by landing 3 or more Scatters. Up to 3 Mystery Reels™ will appear in every spin, resulting in stacks of Mystery symbols. Landing additional Scatters during the Free Spins round will trigger 1 additional spin per Scatter.
Wilds are marked with the letter W and can substitute for all other symbols except for the Scatters and Jackpot Wilds. Wilds are stacked in the game.
The jackpot is triggered when you land a Mystery symbol that reveals a Jackpot Wild. The jackpot can be triggered in the base game as well as in the Free Spins round. If you trigger the jackpot, you’ll spin the steampunk-styled jackpot wheel to win one of the 4 jackpots:
- Mini Jackpot – starts at 10
- Minor Jackpot – starts at 100
- Major Jackpot – starts at 10,000
- Mega Jackpot – starts at 1 million
Fortunium Gold Winners
Since launching, Fortunium Gold Mega Moolah has seen wins of €70,462.76, €66,068.74 and €46,351.10. The biggest win so far in the Mega Moolah network was for a whopping €18,915,872.
In conclusion, this sequel to the much-loved original certainly packs a bigger punch with the inclusion of the Mega Moolah jackpot. Other exciting features such as the Free Spins round, Mystery symbols, Win Booster™ and Mystery Reels™ contribute to the experience as you make your way through the game. We enjoyed the steampunk theme which was rendered really well through the graphics and music.
