Mega Moolah is a progressive slot made by Microgaming that is famous for having awarded some massive grand prizes of over ten million dollars. The largest prize this game has paid out was thirteen million British pounds, and this jackpot has been featured in the Guinness Book of Records as the largest prize ever paid out by an online slot. The average Mega Moolah jackpot win is "only" around three million dollars. Keep in mind that the maximum bet, even if you activate the highest coin level and all of the paylines, is only six dollars and twenty-five cents, so for a slot to pay out so much from such a relatively small bet is pretty impressive. Themed after an Africa safari, this five reeled video slot has a minimum mega jackpot of one million dollars. This is a progressive slot so the longer the game goes without someone hitting a jackpot the better the prospective payday becomes.
The symbols used by this game are T, J, Q, K, A as well as Zebra, Deer, Giraffe, Buffalo and Elephant. There is also a lion, which is wild, and a monkey, which is the scatter symbol. Not only can the wild be used to substitute for any other symbol, it also doubles the prize for that win, so it is a great thing when you get a lion. If three or more monkeys show up on the same spin (keep in mind that lions cannot substitute for monkeys) then you activate your free spins bonus rounds. Because you get fifteen free spins, and because the payouts from these spins are tripled, it is easy to hit a big score during the bonus round. You win by getting three or more of the same icon along one of twenty-five possible paylines. Finally, the biggest potential payday is from triggering the jackpot round. The jackpot round happens randomly and all you have to do is hope that the wheel lands on the paw print jackpot segment and you will be a millionaire. Unfortunately most of the time during the jackpot round you will end up hitting one of the smaller jackpots, which can still be quite nice, but obviously are not the million or even ten million bucks we are all looking for.
There are four progressive jackpots you can hit during the jackpot round. They are the mini, minor, major and mega. These all have a specific minimum value of ten, one hundred, ten thousand, and one million respectively but the longer they go without being hit the higher they are guaranteed to pay out.
One of the strengths of video slots is that they are simple and easy to use. There is no complicated strategy involved and no real potential for mistakes, you just play the game and push the button and hope to win. The graphics were pretty nice and the sounds enhanced the experience without being over the top. Overall the game seems very well designed and constructed as well.
Mega Moolah is definitely one of the progressive slots on the market. Probably the biggest thing in its favour is the massive potential payout you can achieve with it. The bigger jackpots offer life changing money and having a game with this size top prize is a big plus. The fact that it is a progressive and the potential payout is constantly increasing if the prizes are not being hit is nice too because if you see that the jackpots are higher than there is more incentive to play.
