You could be forgiven for thinking that we weren’t going to hear much from the ‘millionaire maker’ progressive jackpot slot Mega Moolah after it was taken down for £5.5m (€6.9 or $7.8m) two weeks ago. However, Microgaming’s record breaking jackpot slot game has made a remarkable comeback, reaching £6m (€7.7 or $8.7m) and rising quickly.

The enduring appeal of the jackpot slot Mega Moolah may not be obvious when simply looking at this fairly bog-standard safari-themed slot. But there may be a few clues when you look a little closer at the network and connections to this game.

The jackpot is linked to another popular slot – The Dark Knight, which also contributes to the total jackpot prize. Both Mega Moolah and The Dark Knight are two of the most prolific slots available across the Microgaming casino network. This jackpot is rarely challenged in size by other Microgaming jackpots, making it stand out from the others. Lastly, it is seeded with £1m every time it is won. This gives it a great chance to grow quickly as players like to play for big jackpot totals.

The average time between wins for Mega Moolah is approximately 12 weeks, meaning that there could be a huge total next time this jackpot is won.
