Mega Moolah Hits the 3.5 Million Mark

Where Playtech is, Microgaming cannot be far behind. If last week Playtech's progressive jackpot online slot game Beach Life breached the $3.5 million, this week it is the turn of Microgaming's Mega Moolah to do the same.

Mega Moolah has a history of big payouts and is guaranteed to produce a millionaire every time it is hit because it resets at $1 million. The average jackpot that this online slot game has produced is $2.7 million. The maximum that it has paid out is a whopping almost $5.6 million. This was won in April 2008 by A Finnish player, 'Klaus E', at the online casino Blackjack Ballroom with a bet of just $0.50. Klaus E was the thirteenth millionaire that Microgaming has produced thus giving substance to the adage that the number thirteen is lucky for some.

All online slot games come with special themes and the slots theme for Mega Moolah is the African jungle full of wild animals like buffalo, giraffe, zebra and elephant. The stunning graphics from Microgaming's Viper software recreate an African safari where the bounty is a million plus dollars. The software's fast and smooth game play brings added enjoyment to the safari theme.

Mega Moolah is Microgaming's first 4-tiered progressive jackpot online slot game and that makes it all the more special. The wheel of fortune type progressive jackpots adds to the excitement of playing Mega Moolah. This highest prize is the Mega Moolah, which is a guaranteed million dollars and usually much more. The next level is the Major, which starts at $10,000 and moves upward from there. The third level is named Minor. Minor begins at $100. And if the player misses out on these three he can always try for the Mini level that offers a consolation prize of at least $10.

Mega Moolah is a 5 reel and 25 payline online slot game. It offers a maximum of 5 coins per payline and a total of 125 coins per wager. The lion is appropriately the wild symbol. It not only substitutes for other symbols to create a winning payline but also doubles the winnings. The monkeys are the scatter symbol. They give the player 15 free spins where wins are tripled. The advantage in Mega Moolah is that free spins can be re-triggered. On a lighter note the monkeys foretell the players future and coming from monkeys the prediction is bound to be saucy. Some of the online casinos that offer Mega Moolah are Ladbrokes, Ruby Fortune, Jackpot City, 32 Red and Lucky Nugget.

There are two other Microgaming games that are also nearing the $1 million progressive jackpot mark. These are Roulette with just over $894,000 and the ever-popular online slot game Major Millions at $917,000.
