Your chance of winning a progressive jackpot is quadrupled in the new Mega Moolah slot from Microgaming – the game has not just one but four progressive jackpots! The Mega progressive jackpot pays a minimum of $1 million dollars, the Major a $10,000 minimum prize, with the Minor and Mini jackpots set at a minimum of $100 and $10 respectively. With an additional free spin bonus feature, the slot offers lots of entertainment and coins size can be adjusted to suit all budgets and bankrolls.
Megas Moolah is a jungle themed five reel slot, with twenty five paylines and a coin size of between 1c and 5c. Maximum bet is 125 coins. The lion symbol is wild and substitutes for all symbols except the scattered monkey. When a lion is used to complete a winning combination, the payout is doubled. All wins pay left to right, apart from the scattered monkey bonus which appears any where on the reels.
The progressive jackpot is triggered by a randomly activated wheel of fortune type bonus game. The Wheel is divided into different colored segments with each coloured segment representing a different jackpot – the white segment containing the lions footprint is the Mega jackpot progressive, the yellow segment with the elephants footprint pays the Major progressive jackpot, the orange segment with the giraffes footprint pays the Minor progressive, and lastly the red segment with the x footprint pays the minor jackpot. The jackpot paid depends on where the wheel stops. When the jackpot is won, the game automatically resets the jackpot to the minimum value, and all players are notified of the win. The jackpot wheel game cannot be triggered during a free spins round, but if you trigger the jackpot round and a free spins round at the same time, then the jackpot round will be played first.
The monkey symbol is the scatter bonus and multiplies the coins bet by between 2 and 100 times depending on how many symbols appear. If 3 or more monkeys appear, you win 15 free spins and all wins during the free spins round are multiplied. The bonus can be retriggered if an additional 3 or more monkeys appear during the free spins round and a further 15 spins are awarded.
The remaining symbols pay according to rank, with the elephant being the highest paying symbol (after the wild lion), and the 10 being the lowest paying symbol. After the progressives, the second highest paying combination (5 lions) pays 15000 coins.
So whether you hit the million dollar progressive, or take home a more minor win, Mega Moolah is a lot of fun to play, and offers an exciting new concept in progressive slot play.
