The Mega Glam Life slot is Betsoft’s answer to NetEnt’s Mega Fortune; with progressive jackpot, money wheels and wilds all included in this luxury package.
We are starting to wonder if Betsoft have lost all originality. We could forgive the fact that the Rook’s Revenge slot is nothing more than Gonzo’s Quest in disguise.
But trying to recreate the success of the slot machine that holds the Guinness World Record for the largest slots jackpot ever won and beloved by millions?
You’ve got some gold plated balls there, Betsoft.
You tell us. Both have 3 jackpots, Though in the Mega Glam Life slot they are named ‘Big, Huge and Mega’, which you can only get by playing a ‘Wheel of Fortune’ mini-game.
And both are about living the high life. Though here you are sitting in your own private cruiser, with the sun setting in the background, as you appreciate the finer things you own.
Namely boats, fast cars, platinum watches and champagne. Oh, and those diamond encrusted high card letters you keep around your deck for a particularly expensive game of scrabble.
You then have free spins game, where every time you get a scatter you are either rewarded with more free spins or an increasing multiplier, up to 10x. Which actually can bring some really decent returns with a bit of luck. Probably more than in the original jackpot game.
Starting to sound familiar?
There are some nice extras here. For one, the betting range goes up to 100 per spin, rather than 50, so big better, high risk players will appreciate that difference. Casual slot gamblers may be less impressed as the minimum bet here is higher at 0.40 instead of 0.25.
And whilst they didn’t have the guts to keep the 5x multiplier on the wild, Mega Glam Life does give you one free re-spin when you get 3 wilds on screen, with those wilds staying sticky.
Both superior jackpot video slots, and both far more entertaining and well done. For one, you don’t have to wait for a big win to load on your Android or iOS device to get that special thrill.
Why play on the cheap knockoff Rolex version (with a much smaller jackpot), when you can have the real thing?

Wilds: The symbol with 'wild', and private jet, is wild and replaces all other symbols except scatter. If you find three on screen, these will then remain sticky as they give you one free re-spin of the five reels.
Not an easy feat.
Scatters and Free Spins: The tropical island symbol is scatter. The free spins come with a 3x multiplier on all wins as standard.
However, any extra scatters that show up during the free spins round can give you an increased 1-2x multiplier or 3 additional free spins.
The max amount of multipliers you can climb to is 10x.
Mostly, on 3 scatters, you'll end up with about 11 to 15 free spins and 3x to 5x multipliers.
How to Win the Progressive Jackpot: Get 3 wheel of fortune bonus symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 and you'll trigger the money wheel bonus.
This has three wheels, each with either cash prizes or golden arrows. You spin and hope you hit the arrow to get to the next wheel.
The middle reel also has the option to trigger the Big Jackpot (a few hundred), then the centre wheel has the 'Huge Jackpot' (a few thousand), followed by hitting the Mega Jackpot right at the centre of all this.
Mostly, you'll get maybe 5 to 25 times your bet, if you're lucky.
It's not that Mega Glam Life mobile slot is not a good game, it's just that when its so obvious a copy of a great machine, you need to wonder why you'd do anything but go to the original.
Especially as the original NetEnt slots have millions in jackpots, instead of the hundreds of thousands.
That said, Mega Glam Life will hit more often, and the free spins genuinely has some great potential to win. But we'd still recommend a more original Betsoft slot like Greedy Goblins.
At least you can have some fun with something a little different, but still an easier to hit jackpot amount.
