Online casino software developer Microgaming’s Mega Moolah Progressive Jackpot officially hit the $5.5 million mark this week and it is expected to burst at any time.
The progressive jackpot is fast approaching the record $8.7 million total that was dropped back in 2009 and punters are hoping for an early Christmas present with the jackpot anticipated to be hit at any moment.
The average win on Mega Moolah comes just over every 12 weeks and the jackpot was last hit 4 months and 13 days ago back when summer was still in the air and the London 2012 Olympics were still fresh in the memory.
Mega Moolah is a 5 reel, 25 pay-line slot game that has an African safari theme where players will experience a true African vibe whilst trying to win millions of dollars on the progressive jackpot.
Symbols in Mega Moolah include various safari animals such as lions, giraffes, elephants and monkeys. The wild symbol is represented by the lion and the scatter symbol is represented by the monkeys.
The main bonus feature in Mega Moolah is the Mega Moolah Free Spins Bonus Round where the player wins 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier if they hit three or more of the scatter symbols across the reels.
Mega Moolah is available to play at online casinos that use Microgaming technology and software right now.
