Mega Moolah Slot Introduction

Mega Moolah - released by Microgaming back in November 2006 - is one of the biggest online slots ever released by the developer both literally and figuratively. It incorporates four jackpot slots with exponentially increasing amounts (until they're won, of course). The largest progressive jackpot always starts at 2,000,000.00 and in the past, winnings have run into the tens of millions.

Mega Moolah Slot Background

Mega Moolah is the first in a long series of progressive jackpot slots that also includes luminaries such as Atlantean Treasures, Mega Moolah Absolootly Mad and the 9 Mad Hats slot (the latter being released under the Triple Edge Studios banner). However, out of all of them, Mega Moolah is still the most well-known and renowned, not only for the reasons discussed above but also due to its pastel-coloured safari-themed audio-visual presentation, simple easy-to-master gameplay, and a couple of exciting bonus features that makes Mega Moolah an iconic slot in every sense of the word.

Mega Moolah Slot Game Design

Mega Moolah features a 5-reel, 3-row game grid with 25 paylines and a maximum potential payout of 1,800x the stake not counting the potential progressive jackpot payouts. The slot is packed with a wide assortment of features and bonuses - including four progressive jackpots and a Free Spins feature - guaranteed to have you roaring like a lion and help transform the slot into one that’s packed full of thrills and excitement.

The slot’s setting is the great African outdoors; the plains are covered in a thin mist that obscures most of the background apart from a couple of acacia trees, some grass on the ground and a foliage of leaves that covers the top-centre of the screen. Dominating the screen is the game grid; the reels are a pastel beige colour; the symbols are a mixture of royal playing cards and stylised animal portraits. Lozenges showing the four progressive jackpot amounts are laid out side by side on top of the game grid. Above this is the slot’s game logo. Music (dominated by tribal drum beats) and ambient sound effects (comprising animal and bird noises) also effectively convey the atmosphere of being on an African safari.

Mega Moolah Slot Bonus Features

Mega Moolah has a couple of bonuses and features guaranteed to up the thrills and excitement!

Free Spins Feature

The feature is triggered by landing 3, 4 or 5 Scatter symbols on the reels, and 15 Free Spins are awarded whatever the amount of Scatters that triggered the feature. All winning combinations during Free Spins pay out triple the amount as well. Finally, the feature can be re-triggered by landing an additional 3 Scatter symbols.

Progressive Jackpots

The Progressive Jackpot feature is triggered at random during play and involves spinning a fortune wheel that awards one of the four progressive jackpots, all of which have a different starting amount.

  • Mini ProgressiveJackpot = starts at 10.00
  • Minor ProgressiveJackpot = starts at 100.00
  • Major ProgressiveJackpot = starts at 10,000.00
  • Mega ProgressiveJackpot = starts at 2,000,000.00

Mega Moolah Slot Summary

In Mega Moolah, Microgaming created one of the most popular and beloved online slots of all time. Despite being released back in 2006, the slot has aged gracefully both in terms of its audio-visual presentation, simplicity of its gameplay (which means it’s easy to pick up and play with no complicated mechanics to get to grips with) and bonus features. Truly one for the ages. If you enjoyed the inclusion of animals in this title, then you could maybe enjoy Return of Kong Megaways which features a primate front and centre in it's gameplay.
