This Microgaming slot is probably the most well-known slot online. This is mostly due to the huge progressive jackpots that are on offer. Mega Moolah is a highly entertaining game even without the draw of the big jackpot. Set in the jungle, this is an animal-themed slot. This five reel, twenty-five payline slot is set on a lush green background that frames the vibrant reels. The reels feature the standard playing cards as the lower value symbols. The higher values are various jungle animals and take the form of an ibis, giraffe, zebra, buffalo, elephant and a lion. The lion is also the wild, and a strange red-handed animal is the scatter.
Prior to getting lost in the entangling jungle that is Mega Moolah, players should know a few of the necessities. There is a one to five coin range per payline just for starters. The betting range is from 25 up to 125 and there is a coin size of 0.01 to 0.05. The jackpot can reach an impressive 10,000x and is, of course, progressive. Lastly, Mega Moolah has an
of 94% making it a highly lucrative and worthwhile game for many a budding gamer.
Mega Moolah hosts a range of bonuses. The first is the, ironically, relatively tame Wild Lion feature. This smaller bonus offers the player a wild lion on every winning combination and thus doubles the player’s money; a small but potentially lucrative reward. Next up are the ever-desirable free spins. This is where the real money can be made. This section is triggered by the player landing a minimum of three scatter symbols anywhere on the reel during the regular phase of gameplay. This will award the player fifteen free spins and all wins acquired in this period will actually be tripled.
Then there is the Mega Moolah Progressive jackpot, the main event and the top reason this game draws so many players. There have been many internet famous jackpot wins in this game and thus the attraction is ever present with hordes of players flocking daily to play this game in the hopes of being the next big winner. Like many other games, this jackpot is actually activated at random throughout the game. The higher the initial stakes placed by the player, the higher the chance of a win. There are four different jackpots each with a different total amount. These are the Mini, Minor, Major and the Mega. Of course, these also gain in size the longer no-one wins them. If a player manages to reach the jackpot game, there is a wheel of fortune style game-play awaiting them. The aim is, of course, to hit the Mega Jackpot and get that impressive score.
An entertaining game on every level, it is no surprise this remains such a strong favourite amongst players. It is also worth noting that the top jackpot never drops below one million coins so there is always that exciting chance of hitting the big win.
