If you have heard of this game before, then surely you already know that it is one of the most popular slot machine games on the internet. Mega Moolah is the sensation which was created by Microgaming in 2001, and which has since then hit huge jackpots many times over, holding the world record for the highest ever internet slot win on more than one occasion and attracting a lot of fans in the process. In recent years its popularity has not waned, and it still holds the number one title of being the most played slot game in a few different countries.
Thanks to its overwhelming popularity Microgaming were able to launch two other games in the series, and now it is one of three slots that all connect to and raise the same progressive jackpot. There are four levels to the progressive jackpot meter, all of which can be paid out independently of the others, which makes for an interesting format. The mini jackpot has a reset value of $10 and is expected to provide only a small win; the minor jackpot has a reset value of $100 and will also only really top up your balance in most cases; the major jackpot has a reset value of $10,000 and is a more significant payout; and the mega jackpot, the reason behind the name of the game, has a fantastic rest value of $1,000,000. That means that any player who manages to hit the mega jackpot is going to become a millionaire immediately, even if they hit it directly after someone else does! When keeping that in mind, it is clear that the reason behind the popularity of the game is simply the fact that it has a huge amount to offer for anyone who wishes to take advantage of playing it and try to hit the big time.
There are five reels and twenty five pay lines on the slot, giving it a classic format which is certainly very much appreciated and still used in slot game design today. The coin denominations which are in use range from 0.01 to 0.05, with a max bet of one hundred and twenty five coins for those who are aiming for the jackpot. The theme of the slot is that of an African safari, and so you will see lots of animals who each have their own special personalities – there is a zebra, an elephant, a giraffe, a monkey, and more, all of which appear on the reels. The features on the reels include scatters which give you free spins where wins are tripled, and a wild symbol which will double your payout when it is used. The other two games in the series are Mega Moolah Summertime and Mega Moolah Five Reel Drive, and one of its most memorable wins was when Klaus E from Finland won $5.5 million from a 50 cent bet in 2008. In 2009, a Greek player also won $6.3 million.
