Mega Moolah

Mega Moolah by Microgaming is one of the most highly sought after and talked about online slots across the globe. The reason for this probably has a lot to do with the fact it was the game responsible for paying out the single biggest jackpot in the HISTORY of slot gaming when in 2015, an English soldier walked away with a whopping prize just shy of 18 million euros after claiming the astounding jackpot.

With it’s quirky safari theme, hugely appealing free spins round and top-notch volatility, Mega Moolah thoroughly deserves recognition as one of the greatest slot games ever made.

Playing Mega Moolah

Before you begin, you’ll need to decide just how much you are staking on each spin. There are two factors that will determine that: the first is how many pay lines you want to have active (you can choose between 1-24 – the more that are active, the more chance you have of winning); 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 not just a slot game that appeals to those spending big bucks.

If you dream of nailing the aforementioned crazy jackpot numbers, you should be aware that the greater the amount you play per spin, the greater opportunity you have of claiming a jackpot.

Once you have decided the amount of pay lines you want and the coin value you’ll be using, the two are multiplied together to determine how much you will be wagering ahead of each spin of the reels.

Alternatively, if it suits your preference, you can just go ahead and hit the “Max Bet” button before you play, which cuts out the configuration and ensures you are playing for the highest possible stake per spin, until you manually decide to alter it.

Mega Moolah - Features

When playing, one of the first things you will notice about Mega Moolah is the four jackpot amounts that are frequently fluctuating. They are in ascending order – there’s the Mini, the Minor, the Major and the Mega. The reason these change is because they’re progressive jackpots. What this means is that as people around the world play the game, the amounts keep rising until the jackpot is finally seized.

When a kitty is claimed, the jackpots will revert to the starting prize n offer and begin to rise once more as people continue to play. Even if you won immediately after one jackpot was claimed, you’d still stand to make lots of money, but in reality, you’re likely to make far more as jackpots are rarely won directly after each other, so there will be time for the pot to accumulate.

As mentioned, the game is safari themed. The visuals are filled with wild animals, and Jeeps making their way across the terrain. Lions, zebras, elephants, antelopes, water buffalos and giraffes make up the graphics, and of course, the reels. Then there’s also playing cards to make up the remainder of 5x3 symbols.

Some animals provide much chance of a life of luxury than others – we’re about to say which ones.

Mega Moolah – Wild Symbol

When it comes to the wild, it’s not an unfair statement that there is no animal wilder than the lion – so it makes sense that the lion symbol in Mega Moolah is wild. If you get two lion symbols anywhere on your winning pay lines, you’ll win 15 coins. Three symbols will net you 125 coins, four will win you a significant 1500 coins and if you manage to get five lion symbols, well then you’ll be bringing in an enormous 15,000 coins! This is what is called the Wild jackpot.

But the Wild doesn’t just bring you wins when it appears with other wild symbols. If it helps form a winning combination with other symbols, then the wild symbol will automatically double your win by virtue of the fact that it was the lion that helped you win it.

Once you see that elusive lion appear, you know there’s a chance you can make some big winnings, so it’s good news for your bankroll.

Mega Moolah – Bonus Round

Jackpots are one way to win big, but by no means the only way. As is the case in most slots games, there’s free spin rounds in Mega Moolah and there’s lots of winning potential available from them.
Monkey business is good business in Mega Moolah because it is the monkey symbol that triggers free spins. It acts as the scatter symbol in the game, meaning if you get three of them anywhere within your paylines, 15 free spins will be triggered.
Any win achieved during these spins is instantly tripled, so two or three wins means you’ll be onto something. There’s even a chance of free spins being re-triggered, should three monkey symbols appear on the reels during your free spins.

Jackpots have been mentioned already but they bear mentioning once more. How are they triggered? The answer is that it is random.
Out of nowhere, jackpots can be triggered. There are four of them, and once one is triggered, you will be invited to spin a wheel that could be your path to riches.
The wheel has different colour-coded segments, with each one of these segments representing one of the different jackpots. The white one is the one you’re really going to want land on – it’s the Mega jackpot, but in saying that, the other prizes certainly aren’t to be sniffed at either!

Mega Moolah – Slot Mechanics

Any mobile device can play Mega Moolah. You could be sipping on a mug of tea or watching TV when you hit a big jackpot.

Because the game features progressive jackpots, the game is unable to be played in free play mode. Even though this is the case, it is possible to place low stakes if you want to get a feel for what it’s like to play the game before laying down larger amounts of funds.

There is potential to win huge jackpots – as is evident from the games history. Free spins, wilds and jackpots mean this can potently be a highly volatile slot game.
