Few pokies are as famous as the Mega Moolah slot machine. This is a slot that currently holds the record for the largest ever online progressive jackpot cash prize, standing at over AU$13 million. The Mega Moolah slot game is African safari themed, and is still the definitive progressive jackpot slot, many years after it first launched.
It doesn’t cost much at all to play the Mega Moolah slot online. This is a game which features 5 reels and 25 lines and contains coin denominations which range from AU$0.01 up to AU$0.05. Expect to find wagers ranging from AU$0.01 per line per spin, up to no more than AU$6.25 per spin. The more you wager, the larger the chance you can win a big progressive.
In the past, players have won AU$13m with this slot. There are four progressive jackpots (Mini, Minor, Major, and Mega) in the Mega Moolah slot machine. These are triggered at random and won via a bonus money wheel. You are guaranteed to win one of them once the random bonus round is activated. Standard cash prizes of up to 225,000 coins can be won via the regular paying icons in the game. The wild lion is the best paying symbol, which the purple monkey, elephant, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, and gazelle pay considerably more than the high playing card icons.
The Mega Moolah pokie uses a wild as its wild icon, and this wild can substitute for all other symbols save for scatters. Wilds can also double the value of all your wins.
Scatters (purple monkeys) can trigger a free spins bonus when 3 or more appear on the screen, whilst landing 2, 3, 4 or 5 such symbols on the screen will offer you scattered wins worth 2x, 3x, 20x, or 100x your total bet, respectively.
Microgaming’s Mega Moolah free spins bonus offers players a total of 15 free spins, no matter how many scatters they bag. During this feature, all wins which the player acquires will be tripled courtesy of a 3x multiplier. The feature can be triggered by landing more scatters on the reels.
