Asian inspired slots is another to add to the list of popular themes Providers go for, with titles like Jin Chan’s Pond of Riches, Hazakura Ways and Sakura Fortune 2 leading by example, but with so many Asian slots already on the market will 1 Million Fortunes Megaways stand a chance?
There is something truly beautiful about Asian culture which might be why it remains such a popular theme for slots, but how well does 1 Million Fortunes Megaways capture that beauty? The background shows a mixture of red and yellow swirls and clouds which doesn’t do the game any justice, but the reel set is loaded with cultural symbols and vibrant colours.
1 Million Fortunes Megaways has 6 reels and up to 117,649 ways to win in the base game, but Iron Dog Studios has gone one better and thrown in a 7th reel and up to a whopping 1,058,841 ways to win in Free Spins, along with Sticky Wilds, Locking Reels and an impressive 45,000x maximum win capacity!

In terms of symbols, the highest paying regular symbol in 1 Million Fortunes Megaways is the Gold Phoenix, followed by the Ship, Dragon, Coins and Lotus Flower. Low-paying symbols are standard Ace, King, Queen, Jack and Ten. There is also a Wild symbol present which substitutes for all High and Low-paying symbols. Wilds appear on all reels except the first.
Although not the most thrilling of features, the Base Game Multipliers can deliver plenty of potential if you can get it high enough and combine it with one of the high-paying symbols or a lot of another. More on this below!
The base game in 1 Millions Fortunes Megaways has an increasing Multiplier available.
Each time a winning combination is formed, the Multiplier will increase to x2 and each successful Cascade after that will award an additional +2 to the Multiplier, up to a maximum of x8.
The Multiplier will be reset with each new base game spin and at the start of the Free Spins round.
In order to trigger the Free Spins round, you will need to achieve a minimum of 4 consecutive Cascades during any base game spin to be awarded 8 Free Spins. Each Cascade after the inital 4 required awards an additional +2 Free Spins, up to a maximum of 14. The Gold Pot at the top of the reel set shows your progression.
During the Free Spins round, an extra 7th ‘reel of fortune’ will come into play in the middle of the reel set that can hold up to 9 symbols. If any of the other reels land with 7 symbol positions, the reel locks and will remain like this for the duration of Free Spins. Locked reels will award an additional +1 Free Spin.
Landing 9 symbol positions on the middle ‘reel of fortune’ will lock for the duration of Free Spins, awarding +5 Free Spins. Each time a reel is locked, a Multiplier of +1 is added to the total Win Multiplier.
Also present during Free Spins is Sticky Wilds.
Sticky Wilds can only appear on the middle ‘reel of fortune’ once it has been locked on the reel set. Sticky Wilds will stay fixed onto their current positions for the duration of Free Spins, up to a total of 9.
Sticky Wilds substitute for all High and Low-paying symbols.
For those outside the UK, you may benefit from a Bonus Buy option.
Iron Dog Studios gives you access to a number of Free Spins for a set price. These are as follows.
Each of the above Bonus Buy options has an identical RTP of 96.10%.
1 Million Fortunes Megaways is quite the chip off the old block to 1 Million Megaways BC and depending on your personal tastes, this could either be a good or bad thing. Although both of these titles have the same features and mechanics running through them, their themes couldn’t be more different.
The base game in 1 Million Fortunes Megaways is not entirely thrilling and the theme itself is very common, but it’s oddly satisfying in a way and the grind to reach the Free Spins round certainly keeps you busy. The Base Game Multipliers feature is definitely a nice touch and can deliver some pretty epic hits if you reach a high enough Multiplier and a nice amount of any one symbol.
Like 1 Million Megaways BC, the Free Spins round is where things start to get interesting. Locking Reels, increasing Multipliers and Sticky Wilds all provide an ‘edge of your seat’ experience and if you’re lucky enough, some pretty decent wins.
In terms of statistics, 1 Million Fortunes Megaways has an above average RTP of 96.20% and a very nice maximum win capacity of 45,000x up for grabs. Some of you may not be tempted because of its common theme, but 1 Million Fortunes Megaways maximum win capacity will definitely draw you in.
