The Microgaming-developed Mega Moolah progressive jackpot officially surpassed the £3.2 million mark this past week.
Mega Moolah is a 5 reel, 25 payline slot that has a theme based on the African savannah with animals you would see on a safari trip filling up the reels as symbols including giraffes, lions, antelopes, elephants, and bison. The lion acts as the Wild and the monkeys represent the Scatters.
The slot comes with four progressive jackpots consisting of the mini, minor, major, and mega progressive jackpots. The biggest of those four is the mega progressive jackpot and that is the jackpot that has breached the £3.2 million mark.
The mega progressive jackpot, currently equivalent to $5 million or €4 million, is one of the largest on the market and triggers at an average amount of £2.2 million so players are anticipating the jackpot to be hit very soon.
In order to win the jackpot, players must trigger the progressive jackpot bonus round. Once triggered, players will be presented with a Wheel of Fortune and if the wheel lands on a white-coloured segment then the mega jackpot is triggered.
The mega jackpot was last triggered 7 weeks ago and was won by a player identified as I.R. at Golden Tiger Casino. The player took home a staggering £3,390,332 and it was the first time the mega jackpot had been triggered in almost 6 months.
The largest win ever recorded on Mega Moolah was £5,882,594 and this jackpot was won by John Orchard from Long Sutton, Lincolnshire in the UK at the Butlers Bingo website.
