Where to begin with this one? Mega Moolah has an infamous reputation that precedes itself. If you are new to the scene and haven’t heard of Microgaming’s Mega Moolah before, there is just one thing you need to know about it. Since its release, Mega Moolah slot machine has paid out more money and created more millionaires than just about every other slot out there. Head to the Jackpot Section of any online casino, and you almost guaranteed to find Mega Moolah.
The slot possesses four jackpots, and when connected to a network the largest one starts at 1,000,000 coins! When you factor in the number of people pouring coins that connected network the amount mushrooms quickly to legendary levels. Of course, most people are not going to land the big one so if we take that out of the equation is it still worth playing?
Key facts and figures
Put the wild jackpot to the side for a second and the rest of the numbers are deceptively average. The one glaring exception is the RTP rate which is extremely low by modern standards – more on that later.
- Microgaming built the slot with a traditional 3×5 setup and 25 betways.
- Bets can be placed from 0.01 to 6.35 coins.
- RTP rate is 88.12% with a medium variance level.
- The average Mega Jackpot is £3.96 million, with a top payout of £13 million.
- Non-network versions of Mega Moolah have a top prize of 225,000 coins.
Most players are only interested in hitting the million+ prize so make sure that you are playing a version that is connected to the Mega Jackpot network.
Symbols and Gameplay
Mega Moolah is all about the jungle. The low pay symbols are 10-A card royals, while top pay symbols are the antelope, zebra, giraffe, buffalo, elephant and the king of the jungle – the lion. The look of the game is slightly dated, but the animals are crafted in a cheerful way which keeps the action light and breezy.
The lion mentioned before is the wild which not only substitutes for the pay symbols but also doubles their value when he is part of a combination. On his own, he is also worth a substantial pile of coins.
The cheeky monkey is the scatter which is worth a few coins, but land 3 or more and receive 15 free spins. During free spins, the value of winners gets a x3 multiplier.
We all know why you are here – jackpots! There are four, and they line up like so:
- Mini – 10 credits.
- Minor – 100 credits.
- Major – 10,000 credits.
- Mega – 1,000,000 credits.
You don’t need reminding, but these are just the starting values, and the sky is the limit on how high they can go!
