Mega Moolah slot review
If one slot really does what it says on the tin, it’s Mega Moolah from developer Microgaming. In every respect it’s ‘mega’, and the potential ‘moolah’ you can win is huge. Having been one of the first big progressive jackpots to come online, Mega Moolah has constantly drawn huge crowds of players at Microgaming-networked casinos holding out for that live-changing win.
It is commonly referred to as the ‘The Millionaire Maker’ due to its reputation for massive jackpots. Mega Moolah provides some of, if not the, biggest progressive jackpots anywhere online, with millions of dollars being paid out in jackpots over the past few years. Famously, a European player bagged over $5 million a few years ago. Those kinds of figures just entice more players – and more money – into the game.
Coin size not significant
You too can take advantage. Bets start at just $0.01, but with a 125 coin maximum bet you can dip deeper into your pockets if you feel so inclined. And fans of Microgaming’s jungle-themed slot, Big Kahuna, have another reason to play Mega Moolah: its fun animal theme. African beasts – lions, giraffes and elephants - stalk the landscape looking to reward the canny player with all manner of bonuses and rewards.
Naturally, the Lion symbol is the Wild in this 5 reel, 25 pay-line slot, and it can double your winnings when substituting for other symbols (all but the scatter). Monkeys are the scatter, and 15 free spins are up for grabs if you hit at least three. These re-trigger, and during the free spins bonus round you’ll get 3x your winnings.
Free spins bonus included
However, you didn’t come to Mega Moolah for its scatters and Wilds, did you? Of course not. What sets Mega Moolah apart is its Jackpot Wheel which offers one of four jackpots: the Mega jackpot has a minimum payout of $1 million, the Major has a minimum of $10,000, the Minor comes next with a payout starting at $100, and the Mini Progressive at $10. The jackpot will keep on climbing until someone hits – and if you’re a keen follower of wins online, you’ll know that can be very, very big indeed.
Superb graphics, lovely sound effects, simple gameplay, and truly spectacular jackpots – it’s no surprise that Mega Moolah just keeps running and running. Fans of other jungle-themes slots like Microgaming’s addictive Big Kahuna or Betsoft’s gargantuan slot Rook’s Revenge will love this, but the massive jackpots easily puts Mega Moolah at the top of the junglist massive pile.
