Microgaming Software’s Mega Moolah progressive slot has apparently dished out a rather large-sized win earlier today ($27,626) according to online gambling news portals. But then again, “large-sized jackpots” are pretty much the norm with Mega Moolah. Quite possibly Microgaming’s most popular online casino slot machine, there’s no doubt Mega Moolah lives up to it’s name, having dished out one of the largest millionaire jackpots in the history of online gambling. It was back in April of 2008 when Mega Moolah paid out a massive $5.5 million jackpot.
The $27K+ win today followed a $13,000 jackpot win earlier in the week, and was the largest win since last month’s impressive $45K+ win. The month prior was home to a $66,000 jackpot win.
In other words, expect Mega Moolah to pay out multi-thousand jackpots each month and accumulated monthly winnings in the hundreds of thousands.
What makes Mega Moolah popular with a wide range of bankrolls is the fact that it offers a four-tier progressive jackpot. The mini default jackpot starts off at $10, while the minor default jackpot kicks in at $100. The Major jackpot takes a huge leap from the minor, starting off at $10,000, while the default Mega progressive jackpot takes the cake at $1 Million. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see why Mega Moolah pays out such hefty numbers. And with a coin range from 0.01 to 0.05 and up to five coins per payline, it doesn’t take a huge bankroll to bet on all paylines, which is required to win the progressive jackpot.
In terms of playability, there are 5 reels, 25 paylines, and a Wheel of Fortune style bonus feature offering a top prize of at least $1 million. The wild, which doubles all winnings on substitutes (except for the Scatter), is the Lion symbol, while the Scatter itself (the weird looking, purple-faced creature) triggers 15 free spins with retriggers and 3x winnings throughout. Oh, and in case you are wondering, Mega Moolah is an African safari themed slot reminiscent of the Lion King. True to Microgaming, the graphics and sounds are stellar, making Mega Moolah just as entertaining as it is loaded.
