Microgaming’s Mega Moolah, known to many as the ‘millionaire maker’, is without a doubt the most popular and profitable Progressive Slot on the web. Although simple in format, this 5 Reel, 25 Payline Slot has a lot of hidden depths behind its fun-looking jungle-themed exterior, and has turned many an average man into a millionaire.
It’s a fantastic Slot for all budgets, with coin values ranging from 0.01 to 0.05, and the maximum number of coins per spin set at 125. Whether you’re playing the long game or ready to risk it all for the chance of a huge reward, Mega Moolah Slot lets you play at a cost that’s affordable to you.
The game features a Wild, represented by the Lion, which rewards players richly for spotting 2 or more on any active pay line. 2 Lions will bag you 15 coins, 3 scores 125 coins, 4 will win a whopping 1500 coins and, if you’re lucky enough to land 5 Lions, you’ll receive a massive 15,000 coins.
The Lion Wild acts as a multiplier, too, so any winning combos you score with the Wild will be doubled in value.
The Scatter Symbol is the Monkey which, as well as paying out plenty of peachy rewards when it appears anywhere on the reels, leads to a great Free Spins feature.
The Free Spins feature is activated when 3 or more of the Monkey Scatter symbols appear anywhere on the screen. When this occurs you will be rewarded with 15 Free Spins and, for every winning combo you land, you’ll receive triple the coins.
The Free Spins feature can even be re-triggered whilst playing by simply landing another set of 3 Monkey Scatters inside the feature.
My favourite feature in Mega Moolah is the Wheel Spin Bonus game which triggers randomly during the base game. Here you face a giant spinning wheel, split into four different Progressive Jackpot values, which eventually comes to a stop to tell you which Jackpot you have been awarded.
As a Progressive Jackpot game, Mega Moolah has a collective prize pool that builds up as more people play. The Jackpot eventually explodes and a lucky winner will receive a huge sum of money, which has been known in the past to reach well into the low millions.
The base game has its own Jackpot of 15,000 coins – not as high as the Progressive prize but easier to achieve – and this can be won when players land 5 Lions on a single payline.
