The Mega Moolah is undoubtedly one of Microgaming’s most popular slots. Or do we even dare to say THE most popular slot? Something that might have to do with it is the fact that the Mega Moolah is the highest paying slot in Microgaming’s assortment.
The Mega Moolah is a progressive jackpot slot that has been around since 2007 and is still thriving. A progressive jackpot slot steadily increases the prize as people play it throughout the day. When nobody wins, it just keeps on increasing. The Mega Moolah has 4 progressive jackpots, each of which you have a chance of winning. The record-breaking jackpot has been won by Jon Heywood from the UK, who claimed a prize of £13.2 million in 2015. After a progressive jackpot has been won, its prize reverts back to its “standard” prize, for progressive jackpot slots that is usually somewhere between 1-3 million.
Before you can start playing, adjust your bet. The coin value on the Mega Moolah ranges from 0.01 to 0.05. You can modify these numbers by using the +/- button. Aside from the coin value, you can also adjust how many paylines you want to play with. You can do so by clicking on “Select Lines”, after which you can click “Select Coins” and choose the number of coins you want to wager. If you want to go all, you can do so by choosing “Bet Max”. When you’re all set, click on “Spins” will have the wheels start spinning. The Mega Moolah also has the option of Autoplay, which means that you don’t need to click on “Spins” manually and you have your hands free to play other games at the same time if you wish.
Symbols and Bonuses
A few exciting things you will come across on the Mega Moolah reels are scatters. If you get 3 or more, you get to use 15 free spins. Anything you win during these free spins rounds are tripled. What’s unique about the Mega Moolah is that it has not 1 but 4 progressive jackpots. You can win any of these within the randomly triggered bonus. All jackpots come with a prize, but the biggest of them all is the Mega Progressive Jackpot which starts at 1,000,000 credits. Followed by the Major Progressive, Minor, and Mini. The incredible graphics on the Mega Moolah slot are partly made possible by Microgaming’s slot development partner Quickfire. They’re also responsible for other slots’ great graphics, for example, The Avengers or Guns N’ Roses slots. If you haven’t played these yet, definitely give these a try next time.
The Lion is the most important symbol on the Mega Moolah, its power is two-fold. It’s a high paying symbol, but also the wild of the game. It can substitute another symbol, except for the scatter, and double your winnings.
The Mega Moolah has 4 progressive jackpots, these can be won randomly, but the higher stake you play with the higher your chance of winning is. Stuff gets real interesting when the progressive jackpot round begins. You can now spin a mystery wheel that features the 4 different symbols of each jackpot. Wherever you land, this is what you win. Although the progressive rounds on this slot are the most interesting, there also is a lot to win in the normal rounds. That’s because the standard jackpot is worth 75,000 coins.
