Mega Moolah is more than just an ordinary online slot. It’s the current world record holder for having rendered the single largest online jackpot. The record was taken down in September of 2015 when British soldier Jon Heywood hit the progressive jackpot for £13.2 million. Not bad for a game that was developed by Microgaming over a decade ago.
About Mega Moolah
The progressive jackpot slot Mega Moolah takes the player on a romp through an African jungle where they are sure to meet some zany looking animals. In fact, the graphics and most excellent caricatures of the animal icons are one of the highlights of the game. Players will also enjoy the video and audio segments as they wait patiently for the random opportunity to be summoned to the progressive jackpot game.
Mega Moolah starts with a conventional 5 reel, 3 row, 25 pay line gaming format. The player is permitted to choose the number of pay lines they wish to play (1 to 25), the number of coins they are going to play (1 to 5) and the value of each coin, ranging between £0.01 to £0.05. All of these numbers create a minimum wager per spin of £0.01, up to a maximum bet of to £6.25. While that low of a wagering range would usually be targeted towards beginners and novice, the huge progressive jackpot makes this game a primary target of players at all levels.
Game features and Bonuses
The games lowest paying symbols are represented by the requisite playing card numbers of 10 through the Ace. The higher paying symbols are represented by some really goofy looking jungle animals such as an elephant, a giraffe, a zebra and an antelope. The lion serves as the wild symbol. It will be used as a substitute for anything other than the monkey scatter symbol. If the player lands three or more scatters, they are rewarded with 15 free spins and a 3x multiplier.
The game’s most important feature is the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot bonus game. At a minimum, the game starts with a jackpot of £1.0 million and grows. Players are chosen at random for a chance to spin the tri-level bonus reel. There are four available jackpots, mini, minor, major and the ultimate jackpot. For a better chance to get chosen, it is recommended players make maximum wagers.
Verdict: – Through out the years, Mego Moolah has earned a reputation for changing lives. The base game is interesting enough, but let’s face it, players are investing their time and money for a crack at the big prize. For anyone who doesn’t think it will happen to them, one Jon Heywood can attest that Mega Moolah is the real deal and anything can happen when you are wondering through the jungles of Africa.
