Free Mega Glam Life Slot
There is something very familiar about this slot. In fact I would go as far as to say it is heavily influenced by a certain famous Net Entertainment title called Mega Fortune. That slot holds the world record for the biggest online slot jackpot.
While Mega Glam Life does have some big progressive jackpots of its own, they are not in the same range as those of Mega Fortune.
Like the ‘original’ Mega Glam Life has a lot of bling on the reels, and a bonus game which involves wheels within wheels. There is also a free spins game which has increasing multipliers, and wilds which will sometimes trigger respins too.
How to Win on Mega Glam Life
The biggest wins come from the second screen jackpot game, though there are still some good sized payouts for the regular symbols. All of these are based on the trappings of wealth. The yacht has the biggest prize of the regular symbols, with 1500 coins for 5 on a line, 150 for 4 and 25 for just 3. This is followed by the sports car (1000 for 5), diamond encrusted watch (500) and Champaign in an ice bucket (300). The regular payouts come from the playing card symbols ace down to ten, these are all diamond encrusted – fitting right in with the glamour theme.
Wilds have a special on-reel feature attached, and also have the biggest single payout on the reels. Of you land 5 on one of the 20 win-lines, you’ll get 5000 coins, with 500 coins for 4 and 50 coins for 3. The 4 and 3 wild payouts assume that no bigger win can be created using the wilds and remaining symbols.
When you get 3 wilds together, you will trigger a respin as well as get a cash prize. What happens here is that the wilds glow and then stay in place, while the remaining symbols spin as usual. This will often create extra wins (and sometimes you’ll get extra wilds too).
Bonus Games on Mega Glam Life
There are 2 bonus games, one is the wheel bonus and the other a free spins game with some extra factors involved.
To trigger the wheel game you need 3 of the bonus symbols anywhere on the reels. This takes you to a new screen where a rather complex looking setup of 3 wheel of fortune type wheels nested within each other awaits. All you need to do is hit the spin button and wait. Half of the entries on each wheel are cash prizes, and the other half are arrows pointing inwards – which take you to the next wheel. If you get to the 3rd wheel you can win the jackpot prizes. Getting a special arrow symbol on the last reel pays the biggest ‘Mega’ jackpot prize.
While the excitement of a shot at big money is always welcome, I did think that the diamond shower graphic along with upbeat winners music is a little over the top when the win is only 60 coins from wheel 1!
Free spins are triggered by the scatter symbols, with 8, 12 or 16 earned for hitting 3, 4 or 5 of these. You will go to a new setting, where the blue sky turns an orange sunset type color. The music also changes, still a chilled track, just a little more upbeat. All the spins have a 3x multiplier as a default, though you can increase the multiplier by hitting more of the scatter symbols. These either increase your multiplier or give you up to 3 free spins. 10x is the maximum multiplier available – and this does not apply to any money wheel bonus you might trigger while playing.
Design and Setup for Mega Glam Life
Putting this slot next to Mega Fortune on your screen is kind of entertaining. The influence is very apparent to say the least. The setting is the back of a yacht, with a clear blue sky behind and semi-transparent reels showing all the trappings of wealth. There is a private jet (the wild), the red sports car and a lot of diamonds.
There are animations, which involve the symbols turning and expanding – the number of coins you won is displayed right on the reels. Music plays while you spin, a jazzy relaxed kind of track. This does go up tempo during the bonus games.
Behind all the bling you will find a 5 reel slot with 3 rows of symbols and up to 20 win lines. You can choose how many lines to play and adjust your coin size, as well as playing up to 5 coins per line. As with all BetSoft titles, a ‘bet max’ button is provided, along with the spin and auto play ones.
The main draw for this game is the progressive jackpot – and with more casinos hosting BetSoft games this can only keep growing. Overall this is a smooth and professionally produced slot on a tried and trusted theme.
