Mega Moolah Slots is a 5-reel 25-payline progressive slot machine and the only one from Microgaming to offer a four tier progressive jackpot. Mega Moolah Slots ranks amongst the most popular online slot machines available at online casinos with a theme quite reminiscent of that of The Lion King. The various symbols available in Mega Moolah Progressive Slots are wild animals including the lion, elephant, buffalo, giraffe, zebra and gazelle.
The wild symbol in Mega Moolah Slots is represented by the lion and acts as substitute for any other symbol with the exception of the scatter. The wild lion thus helps to complete winning combinations and when it does, acts as a multiplier to double players’ wins.
The Monkey is the scatter symbol meaning that it pays out regardless of its position on the reels even if it is not placed on an activated payline. The scatter symbol is also the one which triggers the free spins game when 3 or more scatters appear on the reels. Players are awarded 15 free spins with a triple multiplier and if further scatters appear during the free games, the feature is re-triggered.
Mega Moolah Progressive Slots offers a random bonus game which can be launched at any time. Players who wish to increase their chances of landing one of the four progressive jackpots are strongly recommended to go for maximum bet as this greatly raises their chances of getting to the bonus game all the sooner.
The bonus takes place on a version of a wheel of fortune with 20 colored sections each designating a bonus. The Mini Progressive Jackpot is represented by 10 red segments, the Minor Progressive Jackpot by 6 orange segments, the Major Progressive Jackpot by 3 yellow segments and the Mega Progressive Jackpot is represented by a single white segment. The various jackpots start respectively at $10, $100, $10,000 and $1,000,000 and continue to increase through players’ contributions until one lucky winner hits them.
