Fortunium Gold Mega Moolah Review
Fortunium Gold Mega Moolah is a wonderfully designed steampunk-inspired 5-reel, 40 payline slot developed by Stormcraft Studios exclusively for Microgaming. This Victorian slot is revered for its exciting bonus features that include Mystery symbols, free spins and the win Booster.
Stormcraft Studios have gone all out with this gorgeous steampunk-inspired slot, you can tell a lot of effort has gone into creating a fictional world fit for a big-budget Mega Moolah slot.
Fortunium Gold takes inspiration from Victorian-inspired architecture with a bizarre collection of buildings sat behind the reels that see old meet new. Cogs, gears and a variety of pipes stick out of buildings which dominate the skyline.
When the game loads you’re treated to the booming voice of a jubilant woman (named Victoria) saying: 'Fortunium, where dreams come true!’ she will also crop up from time to time with other voice clips (as will her male counterpart, Maximillian) that we’ll let you discover for yourself!
In terms of game symbols, lower-paying symbols are card suits: club, diamond, heart and spade. Higher-paying symbols are weird and wonderful steampunk-inspired inventions and the game’s two main characters. These are a gun, a zeppelin, a chest, Maximilian and Victoria.
If you’re lucky both the Maximillian and Victoria symbols can come stacked five high, so rather than a symbol with just their portrait, you’ll see their entire body fill the reel instead
The scatter symbol in Fortunium Gold Mega Moolah is a green gem encased in some sort of precious metal whilst the wilds are intricate gears. The standard wild has a W on it whilst the Jackpot Wild has a J on it.
The way this game is laid out is quite jarring in comparison to other modern online slots. The buttons are all placed down the right-hand side of the screen in the style of what looks like a watch. The central button is the spin button whilst those around it allow you to change your stake and set up autospins. To the left of the reels are the Mega Moolah Jackpots and the Win Booster button.
Fortunium Gold Mega Moolah offers players the opportunity to win a total of 800x their initial stake with the maximum win, which admittedly is a little bit tame for a modern slot, especially when other new Mega Moolah titles have much higher maximum wins. This medium volatility slot also has an RTP of 92.67%, which for a jackpot slot isn’t too shabby.
Fortunium Gold Mega Moolah has a lot to offer, it’s superbly designed and feels like a truly modern release fit for the new decade. The RTP isn’t terrible for a jackpot slot, the maximum win is a little lacklustre, but the opportunity to win one of four progressive Mega Moolah jackpots is what makes this game a must-play.
