Life is a beautiful dream when you are a millionaire. Which is exactly what you can achieve with a little bit of luck and good will on the Mega Fortune Dreams mobile slot.
With relaxing lounge music in the background, the back-end of a luxury yacht and exotic fruit champagne cocktails, how can you not fall in love with the dream of luxury? Especially when that luxury can be found perfectly displayed as an Android or iPad/iPhone slot?
The original Mega Fortune slot brought luxury in spades, and what it’s follow up tries to do is to crank it up a notch. If the original was a trip to the French Riviera, Dreams is about owning your own private Island in the Caribbean. And in order to do that, it has upped the stakes every so slightly.
So how does it ramp up the gold Rolex heat? Well, it still has three jackpots, Rapid, Major and Mega. And they all are at the levels you expect to see, including a few healthy millions.
But instead, what this jackpot Mega Fortune Dreams slot is trying to do is change the way the original game plays to keep things interesting. The top amount you can win at a maximum bet here is 200,000 – with the original it was 100,000.
The bonus wheel, where you can hit any of the three jackpots, also hits more frequently. You can rarely go 50 spins without hitting it at least once, though getting past the first reel is insanely hard.
There are more wilds on the five reels, and though they don’t come with a multiplier, if three appear they do stick around for one free re-spin to give you another chance at a 4 or 5 of a kind symbol win.
Ultimately though, Net Entertainments Mega Fortune Dreams slot game doesn’t hit all our buttons quite like the original. Yes you can win more on this one, but the hit frequency is lower.
What does that mean? It means you don’t get little wins as frequent. And the big wins are hard to find as this mobile game is still fairly low variance, though when they come they are usually with a big multiplier in the free spins round, which does bring a hell of a lot of excitement. Generally though, this mobile slot machine is here for entertainment more than big, big wins.
And yes the bonus wheel arrives often which should give you the feeling that you might win the jackpot more often, but instead we stopped getting excited when we quickly got conditioned into knowing that we will rarely travel pass the first wheel.
We are not saying it’s bad. By our books it’s still a four star slot for mobile, which is higher than the majority of the new releases month to month. But our hearts belong in that French Riviera of the original game.
Still, it’s a hard choice between the two, and if that Mega Jackpot is higher on one rather than the other, our fickle heart will jump boats faster than you can say “more Shipwrecked 1907 Heidsieck champagne please Jeeves“.

Wilds & Wild Re-Spins: The palm trees on your own private island are the wild symbol and replace all other symbols except bonus and scatter.
Best of all, if three or more show up on the reels, you get a free re-spin of the reels with the wilds stuck happily in place. Usually you don't get a huge amount, but a nice 30x your bet from time to time is usually welcomed.
Bonus Game: Get three or more bonus game symbols on the five reels and you'll get the wheel of fortune spinning which you touch to stop. There are four rings in total, with the least you can win in instant prize is 1x your bet to 750x your bet.
The big draw here of course is to get past the first two rings and try and hit that Major Jackpot of 30,000+ or Mega Jackpot of one million+.
Hits often, but because of it you rarely manage to get past the first ring.
Scatters and Free Spins: The free spins actually work very similarly to the one in the original slot machine. You hit 3 scatters or more and you get 10 free spins with a 3x multiplier - which is already an improvement from x2 of Mega Fortune.
Then for every new scatter that show up on the screen you'll get either additional free games or additional multiplier. Usually more free spins than scatters and you can easily end up playing 15 free spins. We once managed to get 21 free spins in total, which was sweet. We also hit 5x multiplier, though it goes higher to 10x if you are really really lucky.
This slot bonus feature doesn't hit as often as we would like and when it does can't always be relied on to bring you back to good fortune... but is still good solid entertainment. Our biggest win out of this was 105x our bet, though generally expect closer to the 40x to 50x.
It's almost good enough to beat the original, but Mega Fortune Dreams mobile slot didn't quite make it. Being as it follows one of the biggest jackpot slots of all time, it had a tough competition to beat.
Yet, on it's own merits it's good fun, has some decent size wins on the reels and still makes you dream of that millionaire lifestyle. Will you be giving it a go and dreaming big?
