Mega Moolah slot available at Mr Green

Mega Moolah by Microgaming is one of the most talked about online slots in the world. That probably has a lot to do with the fact that it was responsible for paying out the single biggest Jackpot in history when in 2015 an English soldier walked away with just short of 18 million Euros after securing the eye-watering Jackpot. With its quirky Safari theme, hugely generous free spins round and high volatility, it thoroughly deserves its place as one of the great online slots ever made.

Playing Mega Moolah

Before starting out you’ll need to decide your stake per spin. Two factors will determine that. The first is how many paylines you want to have active. You can choose anything between 1-24. The more that are active, the greater your chances. But it will also cost you more.

The second thing you need to decide is how many coins you want to be staking per line. Coin value ranges from 0.01 to 0.05 so it’s certainly not a slot that only appeals to the big-hitters. However, those who dream of nailing those mind-numbing Jackpots should be aware that the greater the amount you play per spin, the greater your chances of nabbing one of those Jackpots.

Once you’ve decided on that, the two are just multiplied together to determine how much you’re wagering ahead of each spin.

Alternatively, you can just hit the Bet Max button which will mean you’re playing for the highest possible stake per spin, until you decide to manually change the amount.

Features of Mega Moolah

One of the first things you’ll notice about Mega Moolah is the four Jackpot amounts that are constantly changing. They are in ascending order: Mini, Minor, Major and Mega. The reason they change is that they’re Progressive Jackpots. That means that as people all around the world keep playing them, so the amounts keep going up until they’re finally won.

When they’re won, they’ll revert to the starting prize on offer and start growing again. Starting amount for each one is as follows: Mini (10 CAD), Minor (100 CAD), Major (10,000 CAD) and Mega (1,000,000 CAD). That means that you’d be guaranteed to win at least 1,000,000 CAD even if you won the Mega immediately after it had just been won, but in all probability, it will be far, far greater than that.

The game is Safari-themed with wild animals you could reasonably be expected to spot from your Jeep occupying the reels. So, we’re talking lions, antelopes, monkeys, zebras, elephants, water buffalos and giraffes. And then of course you have the far more boring but then again far less ‘dangerous’ playing cards to complete the symbols on the 5x3 reels.

Two of those animal symbols just mentioned provide you with your path to riches. We’re about to tell you which.

Mega Moolah Wild Symbol

No animal is wilder than the Lion so it’s fitting that the Lion symbol is the Wild. If you get two of them anywhere on your winning paylines, you’ll win 15 coins. Three gets you 125 coins, four wins you 1500 and the biggest roaring success of all is when you get five, as it will see you pocket 15,000 coins. This is known as the Wild Jackpot.

But the Wild doesn’t just bring you wins when appearing with other Wilds. If it helps you form a winning combination with other symbols, it will automatically double your win just by virtue of the fact that it used the Lion to help you get there. So, any appearance from that somewhat elusive Lion should be good news to your bankroll.

Mega Moolah Bonus Round

Free Spins
We’ll come to the Jackpots in a second but that’s not the only way to secure a big win. As is the case with most slots, there’s a free spins round here and in terms of winning potential from it, it puts other free spins rounds to shame.

Monkey business is big business here because it’s the monkey symbol that triggers the free spins. It’s the Scatter in the game and three of them anywhere on your active paylines triggers 15 free spins.
Any win secured during those spins is instantly tripled so you only need two or three to really be onto something here. The free spins can even be re-triggered, should you get three more monkeys appearing non the reels again during the free spins.

The Jackpots
We’ve mentioned them already in terms of there being four of them and we’ve given you an indication of what you can win. But how do you trigger them? The answer is that it’s random.

Out of nowhere you can trigger the Jackpots and as soon as that happens, you’re invited to spin a wheel that resembles the Wheel of Fortune from the famous TV gameshow.

There are different colour-coded segments on the wheel, each one representing one of the different Jackpots. The White one is the one you’re really hoping to land on as that’s the Mega but as we’ve seen already, the others aren’t to be sniffed at.

Mega Moolah slot mechanics

Mega Moolah can be played on any mobile device of your choice. So, it could well be that you end up being the next millionaire while waiting for a bus or having a cup of coffee and slice of cake at your local café.

Because the Mega Moolah slot is all about the Progressive Jackpots, which are constantly changing and dependent on real money being played on them, it doesn’t make any sense for it to be available on Free Play mode. But as explained already, you can have a go at winning Mega amounts of money with small stakes.

There’s potential for huge wins through Jackpots, the Wild Jackpot and big pay-outs thanks to the free spins. But it’s also a case that you might well go a fair few spins without winning much. All of which explains why this is considered to be a highly-volatile slot.

Max Win ($):  Unlimited thanks to the Mega Progressive Jackpot

Max Win (coins): Unlimited

Max Bet ($): 6.25

Min Bet ($): 0.25

Return to player: 94%

Volatility: Medium

Free Play available: No

Final conclusions

Other slots will come and go but though the design of this one may seem a bit out-dated in years to come, it should remain a firm favourite for a long time yet. Above all, it’s the potential to secure huge wins via three different methods- Progressive Jackpot, Wild Jackpot and Free Spins- that is its big selling point. But the cute graphics and easy gameplay contribute to the whole package as well and help to explain why it has millions of fans worldwide.
