The biggest jackpot slot out there
If you are looking to make yourself a millionaire with an easy task by playing slots, Mega Moolah is your choice. The jackpot in the game is usually so high that you could for example buy a whole island easily with that money. Let’s look closer how you can achieve these goals and what are the main features in this great Microgaming slot.
Mega Moolah is a 25 line slot with 5 reels and an African theme. The symbols are animals from Africa and the lion is a wild symbol, which will replace any other symbol than the scatter symbol, which will activate the bonus game if you get three of them. Nice thing about the wild lion symbol is the fact that it doubles the winnings you get with that line. The game is produced by Microgaming, which is one of the main online casino game producers in Europe. The game has all the most important perspectives of a slot, but the best part is the jackpot, which is usually millions of pounds since the minimum amount is one million pounds.
There are three specially themed versions made from this game. They are called Mega Moolah 5 Reel Drive, Mega Moolah Summertime, and Mega Moolah Isis. They are slightly altered versions, but the main principals stay the same, and the jackpots are also the same, so in the end, it doesn’t matter which of the games you play if winning the jackpot is your primary goal.
There are four different jackpots in the game. They are called mini, minor, major and mega. Mini is the smallest and mega is the biggest. You can win these jackpots from the bonus game, which will be activated with three scatter symbols. From the bonus game, you might get the jackpot wheel if you are lucky enough. From the wheel, you will win some of the jackpots, but sadly usually it is the mini jackpot, which will usually bring you something like £10-20. You can see the amounts of the jackpots from the upper side of the game window, and you will also be notified if someone wins any of these jackpots. Funny thing about the amounts is that the amounts are the same no matter if you use pounds or e.g. US dollars. Therefore, we will get some nice edge from this since pound has been one of the strongest currencies out there for many years.
The biggest jackpot ever won from an online casino has been won from this game. The jackpot amount was £13,213,838, and it is also the official Guinness world record. There has been several over £10 000 000 pots won from this game and usually when you look at any of the jackpots amounts out there, Mega Moolah is the highest. This is just because it is slightly more difficult to win the mega jackpot from this game when compared to other jackpot slots like Halls of Good or Mega Fortune. So how to maximize the change of winning this jackpot you might ask. Well, the bigger bet size you use, the better chance you have in activating the bonus game.
Pro tip: “Mega Moolah has very high variance, so if you are more into playing a long time with short cash, we would recommend playing Starburst, which has low variance and a decent payback of 96.1%.”
Is Mega Moolah the best Jackpot slot?
It is one of the most popular jackpot slots since the amount of the mega pot is usually the highest when you compare it to the other jackpot games out there. Activating the jackpot wheel is quite hard, so some players like to play Mega Fortune or Hall of Gods since you will instantly get the slim chance of winning the biggest jackpot from these games when you get to the bonus game. In our opinion, Mega Moolah still is the best jackpot slot out there, but Hall of Gods would be the second best game for us.
Questions and answers
What is the payout percentage in Mega Moolah?
The theoretical payout in Mega Moolah depends on the size of the jackpot. The bigger the jackpot, the bigger the payout. There is no maximum amount for the jackpot, so in theory, the payout could go above 100% if the jackpot goes high enough. This is one of the reasons there are some professional syndicates out there playing online casino slots with jackpots since they have somehow got hold of information about what is the limit for the jackpots to make the game’s payout over 100%. Anyway, in general, the payout percentage in Mega Moolah is around 96%.
What is the minimum bet I can use?
Like we have mentioned in our other slot reviews, different casinos have different stake limits for different games. Usually, the minimum bet in Mega Moolah is £0.01 – £0.05 coin size, so the minimum bet is as low as £0.01. Maximum bet varies, but usually, it is as low as £6.25.
How can I get free spins?
Usually, online casinos don’t give out free spins to progressive jackpot slots since they need to pay a bit more to the slot providers from these free spins. Also, you don’t even want to get free spins to these games since it is not possible to win jackpots with free spins. Most casinos don’t tell this, but we do as we are just looking out for our readers!
