Mega Moolah is Microgaming’s most popular online progressive slot game, offering the largest jackpots available on the Internet.
Part of the Microgaming wide area progressive jackpot network (the world’s largest interconnected system of Web-based pokies with accumulative jackpots), Mega Moolah has a four-tiered group of jackpots unmatched by any other title:
- Mini – Starts at a base level of $10.00
- Minor – Starts at a base level of $100.00
- Major – Starts at a base level of $10,000.00
- Mega – Starts at a base level of $1,000,000.00
Based on a wild African safari theme, the basic game information is as follows:
Coin sizes: $0.01, $0.02 and $0.05
Number of coins allowed per spin: 1-5
Minimum bet: $0.01 x one coin per line x one line = $0.01
Maximum bet: $0.05 x five coins per line x 25 lines = $6.25
Wild symbol: Lion – The lion wild symbol will act as a kind of ‘joker’ – it substitutes for any regular symbol (except the monkey scatter symbol) to complete a winning pay-line, and doubles a player’s win.
Scatter symbol: Monkey – Hit three, four or five monkey scatter symbols and you are rewarded with 15 free spins which can be re-triggered. All your winnings during those free spin rounds are tripled.
Payout percentage: 94 – 95%
Below are a couple of screen shots of the progressive game:
The Mega Moolah slot symbols include: the lion (wild), monkey (scatter) elephant, buffalo, giraffe, deer, zebra, and the Ace, King, Queen, Jack and 10 icons. By spinning two or more of these symbols to complete a winning pay-line, you win the following amount of coins (multiplied by your coin bet size per line).
Payouts for the lion, monkey, elephant and buffalo are according to two, three, four and five symbols being spun, and payouts for the other symbols are according to three, four and five of those icons being spun:
Lion: 15, 125, 1500, 15000
Monkey: 2, 3, 20, 100
Elephant: 6, 50, 250, 750
Buffalo: 4, 40, 150, 600
Giraffe: 30, 125, 500
Deer: 20, 100, 400
Zebra: 10, 50, 250
Ace: 8, 40, 150
King: 6, 30, 100
Queen: 4, 20, 75
Jack: 3, 15, 60
10: 2, 10, 40
The bonus round is triggered randomly, and each of the four jackpots never go below their starting amount (once hit, they reset to their starting level). The bonus feature is a Wheel of Fortune type game with 20 slots, and there are 10 slots which cover the mini bonus, six which cover the minor, three for the major, and one for that glorious mega bonus.
Note: Mega Moolah is only available for real money players (RMPs) and can’t be played in practice mode.
