Mega Moolah is the name of not only a pokie machine game, but a progressive jackpot that can be won while playing the game at a Microgaming casino. This vibrant, colorful game provides a colorful portrayal of the jungle, complete with authentic-sounding effects and music.

Mega Moolah Basic Information

Mega Moolah is known for having huge progressive jackpots, but there is more to this charming video pokie than the promise of nice prizes. The colorful and endearing symbols feature friendly jungle characters, such as a lion, giraffe, elephant, zebra, and more. The classic 10-J-Q-K-A symbols are also included for added variety. As with all Microgaming pokies, this game is user-friendly and very easy to play, with large buttons that are easy to find and click to customize your bets, etc., to your liking.

Mega Moolah Coin Values and Jackpots

You won’t have much of a choice when selecting coin values in Mega Moolah, as they only range from 1 to 5 cents. However, many people will likely be thrilled that they can play every line with the maximum amount of coins per line for just $6.25. The low maximum bet is pretty much par for the course when it comes to a progressive jackpot pokie.

Aside from the progressive jackpots, you can win a pretty large amount in the standard game with the base jackpot of 15,000 coins. This can become a 75,000 coin jackpot if you bet 5 coins per line, too.

Mega Moolah Jackpot Rules

In order to get the base jackpot of 15,000 coins, you will need to get five of the “wild lion” symbols on a single active payline. Again, the jackpot will also be multiplied by the number of coins you are betting per line, so the greater the risk, the greater your reward will be while playing this game.

Mega Moolah Progressive Jackpots

Mega Moolah features four progressive jackpots. The Mega Progressive jackpot starts at a whopping $1 million. The Major Progressive starts at $10,000. Finally, the Minor and Mini Progressive jackpots start at $100 and $10, respectively. The Mega Progressive jackpot has been won about every 11 weeks, with an average win of $2.8 million (all totals given in AUD). It has been won several times with a value of over $4 million, as a matter of fact.

To win a progressive jackpot, you have to get into the “spin to win” bonus game. Now, you do not need to win or do anything else in order to get a chance to spin. You can be selected to spin at any time, even after a loss. However, you will have a better chance to be selected when you bet more, which is why people often bet the maximum amount on progressive pokies like this one.

Mega Moolah Special Symbols

Mega Moolah’s wild lion symbol appropriately serves as the wild symbol. It will substitute for any symbol in the game, with the exception of the scatter symbol. Furthermore, when the wild lion symbol is used to substitute for another symbol in a winning combination, it doubles your win.

The scatter symbol is a monkey dressed like a sort of shaman, and he will bring you good tidings to the tune of 15 free spins if you obtain 3 or more of him and his brethren in a single spin. During free spins (which can be retriggered, by the way), all of your wins are tripled, which means you can win up to 225,000 coins if betting the full amount when you get five wild lions during free spins.

Mega Moolah Final Thoughts

You will feel very welcome in this jungle once you start living the excitement of playing for some large progressive jackpots. Even the regular jackpot is very nice, especially when betting the maximum amount, which means there will be plenty of reasons to enjoy a visit to the jungle of Mega Moolah in the near future.
