Progressive jackpot slot Mega Moolah is riding high again, with a currrent jackpot of £5,672,341 ( €7.3m or $8.2m) and growing rapidly. This is the same jackpot slot that paid out £13.2m to a British soldier in October 2015 and has paid out over £100m during its time online.
Mega Moolah is arguably the biggest and most popular of all jackpot slots from online gaming developer Microgaming. The current jackpot total has stood for 17 weeks now, which is 5 weeks longer than its average payout. Therefore many speculators are predicting it will be taken down very soon.
The Mega Moolah jackpot can also be played on the Dark Knight slot, which runs off the same jackpot network. Progressive jackpots accumulate their total by taking a small percentage of each bet made by a customer and adding it to a pool fund. Popular slots like Mega Moolah tend to grow faster than others as they are available at more casinos and they are seeded, meaning they have a starting point of £1m.
