Who hasn’t heard of Microgaming’s record-breaking progressive slot, Mega Moolah? This jungle themed game has awarded millions in prizes, and was later joined by a spin-off, Mega Moolah Isis, which quickly built its reputation as another jackpot goliath. The Mega Moola jackpot is world record breaking, havng created three world record breakers in the last few years, so when this jackpot grows big, it’s definitely one to keep an eye on.
Discover The World of Mega Moolah
A cartoony, colourful jungle, with a lot of riches hidden behind the exotic symbols and animals, that’s what Mega Moolah is all about. Maybe this theme is not exactly what you’d expect from a game that has the potential of rewarding massive payouts, but who doesn’t like a nice tropical setting? And after such a roaring success, it’s only natural that this 5-reel, 25 payline slot spawned its own series of spin-offs and a huge fan base.
So what makes Mega Moolah such a great game? First, this slot features four progressive jackpots, which include the Mini, Minor, Major and, of course, the Mega. These jackpots are limitless and only reset when a jackpot falls and a player wins it. While these jackpots alone would be enough to entice even the most jackpot-cautious players, Microgaming has included other attractions as well. The slot offers lots of Free Spins, Wild symbols and a rewarding Bonus Round.
The original Mega Moolah has an RTP of 88.12%, whilst the Egyptian-themed sequel Mega Moolah Isis has an RTP of 88%. Both slots have a medium to high variance. You can always enjoy a good quality gameplay at home on desktop or on your mobile device. No software download is required so you can spin these reels whenever you wish, even on your daily commute. In fact, the majority of the jackpot winners in the past couple of years have all been on mobile devices.
Interacting with the game is very simple thanks to a well-designed interface with clear buttons and functions. If you don’t feel like spinning the reels on every round you can easily activate the Autoplay function and sit back as the action unfolds in front of you.
Other game features include:
● Maximum win of 225,000 coins in the base game.
● 4 progressive jackpots with prizes that can run into the millions.
● Up to 15 free spins to be won with the Scatter symbol.
● A Wild symbol which substitutes for most game symbols and pays double.
The Mega Moolah Jackpot Wheel
When the Wheel of Fortune appears, a jackpot prize is guaranteed! This bonus game is randomly generated, which means every spin is packed with anticipation.
The wheel is divided into ‘slices’ of varying colours to match the colours of the four jackpots. The Mega Jackpot is only present once, while the Mini Jackpot is the most common. Once the wheel stops spinning, you win whichever jackpot the wheel lands on. It couldn’t be simpler
The Record-Breaking Win
The player who holds the record for the highest jackpot prize awarded on the wheel received no less than €18,910,668.01* on September 28, 2018. Crazy right? Other eye-popping prizes won in the last year on this jackpot include a $5,691,921.42 payout in April 2018 and €4,365,843.63 won in March 2018.
More Than Just A Jackpot Slot
Playing Mega Moolah is always rewarding, and not only when the Jackpot Wheel pops up on your screen. For example, when you land three or more monkey chief symbols (the game’s Scatter), you receive 15 free spins, where all wins are tripled! Similarly, when the wild lion symbol forms part of a winning combination your payout is doubled.
The game also features 10 standard payout symbols split between low-value, medium-value and high-value ones. Payouts are awarded when a combination of two, three or more identical symbols land on a winning payline. The slot’s special symbols, the Scatter and the Wild, will also pay when two or more of them land on a winning payline.
Mega Moolah Isis is very similar and features the head of Egyptian goddess Isis as the game’s Wild symbol. The hawk is the Scatter symbol which can award up to 30 free spins where all wins are multiplied by six.
As we said before, this game will make you feel like you’re in a jungle safari. As you spin the reels you have the opportunity to catch some magnificent beasts and even hear them roar when you win an eye-popping jackpot. Mega Moolah Isis follows a similar concept, except this one is based on the Egyptian pharaohs and their wealth.
Worth mentioning is that Mega Moolah Isis is easier on the eyes, with less flashy graphics than its predecessor. However, we all know its the big wins you’re really after.
