Mega Moolah progressive jackpot slot ticks over $6.39 million
Microgaming’s Mega Moolah’s four-tier jackpot has once again reached new heights. With the mini (starting at $10) and the minor (starting at $100) jackpots being hit regularly, it’s the major and mega jackpots which have caught our eye.
The major progressive jackpot, which starts accumulating from $10,000, is steadily increasing, and now sits at more than $36,000 at the time of this article going live.
The mega progressive jackpot, which begins accumulating from $1,000,000, has made its way over the $6.39 million-dollar mark, and we reckon it’s about time an Australian took home the prize.
Since its inception, the mega jackpot prize has been won by gamers from all across the globe, including players from Greece, New Zealand, the U.K., Germany, Poland and Finland, but it has eluded all Aussie punters.
The largest-ever Mega Moolah progressive jackpot winner is Georgios M from Greece, who claimed approximately 6.3 millions pounds in 2009, from a $5 spin (that’s about $8.9 million Australian Dollars). Prior to Georgios, Finland’s Klaus turned a $0.50 bet in to $5.5 million dollars – not a bad return on his investment.
On average, the mega jackpot grows by $100,000 up to $200,000 per month, or more, until someone win it all.
The four-tier progressive jackpots are won from the random bonus round, which is a wheel-of-fortune type game. Spin the wheel and hope it lands on the single white slot. The bonus round is activated randomly, and a player is more likely to trigger the bonus round when betting larger amounts. The maximum wager per spin in Mega Moolah is $6.25.
On the wheel are 20 slots, including one white slot (mega jackpot), three yellow slots (major jackpot), six orange slots (minor jackpot) and 10 darker red slots which will win you the mini jackpot. The Mega Moolah game is based on an African theme, resembling Disney’s The Lion King, so if you’re a fan of that classic film, this game should be right up your alley.
The game is linked to Microgaming’s Progressive Jackpot Network of pokies, which also includes The Dark Knight progressive slot title. The Dark Knight has the same four-tier jackpot structure, so you can try your luck on this game, too – a great homage to Christopher Nolan’s blockbuster movie, with music and video clips taken directly from the film, and advanced graphics.
