Online slot review: Mega Moolah… and mega friends!
If there’s one slot that comes up time and again when talking about big casino winners, it’s Mega Moolah. After all, this wildly popular slot was responsible for some of the biggest casino wins of 2020 alone – and that’s not even mentioning all the jackpot wins it’s been responsible for in years gone by. So what exactly makes this slot so lucrative, and why is it known as ‘the Millionaire Maker’? Read on to find out, and you could soon be making some mega moola of your own!
On the face of it, Mega Moolah would seem to be just another progressive slot – but as you’ll soon find out, looks can be deceiving. It’s got an African wilderness theme, so it’s engaging. It’s developed by Microgaming, so it’s pure quality. And it’s paid out $6,145,288 on average since being released in 2006, so you know it doesn’t just promise rewards – it delivers them, and then some.
But leaving aside the huge multi-million payouts, there’s so much to enjoy with Mega Moolah just as an online slot on its own. With the African veld as its backdrop, Mega Moolah has plenty of animal friends who’ll drop in to say hi – from elephants and giraffes to lions, monkeys, zebras and buffalos too. Throw in some ambient background sounds and you’ve got yourself a fun-filled slot to play – one featuring 5 reels, 3 rows, 25 paylines, and plenty of excitement with every spin!
Although Mega Moolah is a progressive slot (which means it’s only available to play in real money mode), it’s still a standard video slot, which means it’s wonderfully easy to learn and play. Simply choose how much you’d like to invest, from 0.25 up to 6.25 for all paylines activated, and place your bet. Get a winning combo on any of the paylines and you’ll be paid out accordingly – it’s that simple. Even better, watch out for the lion symbol – as this king of the jungle doubles as the wild symbol, completing any winning combinations it forms part of, and adding a 2x multiplier to your winnings as well!
The biggest thrill of the Mega Moolah experience though is by far the Mega Moolah Jackpot Wheel – a feature that’ll trigger randomly as you play, giving you four potential jackpot opportunities. Spin the wheel and you could be the lucky winner of either the Mini, Minor, Major or Mega jackpot, starting at $10, $100, $10,000 or $1,000,000 respectively. Of course, that’s where the jackpots start at – what their value is by the time you spin the wheel is anyone’s guess, and that’s where those huge payout amounts start coming into play.
Why is that? Because Mega Moolah is a progressive jackpot on the Microgaming network, which means any time anyone bets on Mega Moolah anywhere in the world, the Mega progressive jackpot increases as a result. The more people who play and bet, the more the Mega jackpot will grow until it’s eventually won. And if you’re in the right place at the right time, and place the right bet, it could be you walking off with the top jackpot prize!
Not finding that jackpot wheel? Not to worry – there’s still plenty to look forward to in Mega Moolah, like the monkey scatter symbols. Find 3 of these on the reels and you’ll find 15 free spins, each with a 3x multiplier too. So any winnings you accumulate from your free spins round will automatically be tripled, giving you even more to celebrate!
Remember that in order to win max, you’ll need to bet max – but only ever do this when your bankroll can support the bet size. If you can’t afford to play for the progressive, there’s still plenty to play for with free spins and wilds too, so play responsibly at all times. Mega Moolah, mega excitement – only just a spin away!
Happy Spinning 🙂
