Mega Moolah Poised to Award More Staggering Jackpots in 2018
When Microgaming launched its Mega Moolah video slot back in December 2006, no one could have guessed how popular would this game become in little over a decade.
Today, Mega Moolah is possibly one of the best known online slot machines ever created, largely because of the staggering progressive jackpots with which it’s associated.
It took some time to reach that status, though. The game awarded its first multi-million jackpot in April 2008, and the slot has been writing history ever since.
What is it that makes Mega Moolah so appealing to players from all over the world? Apart from the staggering progressive jackpots, it has on offer.
Basic Information about the Game
At first sight, the game doesn’t differ much from any other Microgaming release. It features a five-reel three-row layout with 25 paylines, incorporated into an African-theme with plenty of wild animals such as zebras, giraffes, buffalos, elephants, and lions on the reels, along with the standard 10, J, Q, K and A symbols.
The list of icons includes the usual Wild, which can substitute for other symbols, thus helping players create more winning combinations and win more money. Bear in mind that all winning combinations containing the Wild will double the win. The game also features the Scatter symbol, while landing at least three of them will activate the Free Spins game, with more than generous 15 spins being awarded to the lucky punter. But that’s not all since all wins grabbed during the bonus game will be tripled. Not bad at all!
Definitely, the most appealing part of this game is the opportunity to win one of the four progressive jackpots on offer – Mini, Minor, Major and Mega. The jackpot game, where you can win one of them is triggered at random while betting more money will increase your chances of actually winning one. Once the jackpot game is on, it will be your time to spin the wheel and hope for the best!
Breaking the Records
Mega Moolah has awarded a number of record-breaking jackpots in recent years and has even made it to the Guinness Book of Records thanks to jackpots paid out in 2015 (the biggest one ever paid out in an online slot) and 2016 (the biggest payout on a mobile device).
This year has kick-off in an impressive way for the fans of this game, with millions of dollars being awarded to lucky punters around the globe.
The first Mega Moolah progressive jackpot of 2018 was awarded on January 14, when a player took home a prize worth CA$3.6 million. Only a month later, Lady Luck helped a fortunate player from Canada to grab a staggering CA$7.5 million jackpot. A little over a week later, another jackpot was paid out, worth nearly £4.4 million.
April was even more generous, with not one but two jackpots being awarded in the space of two days! On April 19, a punter won $5.7 million, while the next day, £1.7 million was enough the change the life of one player.
We can expect more from Mega Moolah in the following months of 2018, and although we are yet to see a jackpot being awarded in May, there’s no doubt „the Million Maker“ will live up to players expectations.
