Mega Moolah Slot

mega moolahThere are a couple of slots online that rack up huge progressive jackpots. There´s Millionaire Genie, for example- a Random Logic Game, and then you have Mega Fortune from Net Ent and the Big One from Party Gaming. But the big one that most people talk about is Mega Moolah from Microgaming. Moolah is American slang for money of course and Mega Moolah is a pretty apt name for this slot game.
There is a bit of a fly in the ointment, and that is the average RTP% or Return to Player on the base game which is lower than most games we feature on slots.org.uk. And that´s to pay for all of these big jackpots. If you win the Mega jackpot, you ain´t going to be worrying about that, I guess.

A record-breaking Mega Moolah jackpot of £13.2 million was scooped up on the 6th of October 2015 by Jonathon Heywood from Cheshire in England. He was playing on Betway Slots. When asked what he was going to do with the money, he replied "I´ll probably buy a yellow Bentley Continental convertible GT." Fair enough! It beats touring around Afghanistan with the Army.
Before this, a player from Canada spun in CAD $7.5m in April 2015. The list goes on- this slot has made some players very rich.

The Mega Moolah jackpot ticks up from 1 million when someone wins and it is reset. Players who play the game across multiple casinos using Microgaming software across multiple countries contribute to the jackpot which heads up and up until someone wins it. The progressive jackpot is actually fed by 5 games: Mega Moolah 5 Reel Drive, Mega Moolah Summertime, Mega Moolah Isis and the Dark Knight slot, a 243 ways-to-win slot game that we review here on slots.org.uk. You can win the jackpot on any of these games.

There are actually four jackpots- the Mega, the Major, the Minor and the Mini. It´s the Mega that you need to win if you want the big pay day.
The Mega starts at 1 million, the Major at 10,000 (still a nice one to win), the Minor at 100 and the Mini at 10.

As with all progressive jackpots, this is more of a lottery play- as you can imagine, the odds of winning the jackpot are pretty slim with so many people playing. But you never know, it could be you!

The Game
The theme is safari and the action unfolds across 5 reels and 25 pay-lines. You play for the jackpots on a Wheel of Fortune type game:
Look out for the Lion symbols which are Wild (they double your wins). Get 5 of these on activated pay-line and you will net 15,000 x your line bet.

You can win up to 225,000 coins in the base game, so it´s no slouch. The scatter symbol is the monkey- you´ll need 3 or more of these anywhere on the reels to get 15 free spins and all your wins are tripled (x3) during the free spins bonus. And even better, you can retrigger free spins from within the bonus.
Other symbols include an elephant, a buffalo, a giraffe a zebra and a springbok, plus A, K, Q, J and 10 symbols.

Microgaming also run quite a few other progressive games such as Major Millions, Cash Splash and Treasure Nile, but none of the jackpots come close to their Mega Moolah Slot.

There is also a mobile Mega Moolah game for smartphones and tablets. The newer Microgaming games are all released "mobile ready". The older ones are being powered up one by one- Mega Moolah was pretty high up on the priority list when they developed their mobile slots range.

Just remember that you´ll be contributing to the pot when you play, so the RTP% on the base game is going to be set a bit lower. That said, if you are going for the monster jackpots, you might as well go for the big one: Mega Moolah. Things get pretty frantic once the jackpot hits ten million, as that´s attracts a lot of player which pushes the progressive jackpot even higher faster.
