If slots players at online casinos are asked to name their favorite slot game, it is very likely that the majority would root for Mega Moolah. This is because Mega Moolah is an extraordinary slot game. It is structured in an innovative and path breaking way, it has offered some of the highest progressive jackpot payouts in the history of online gaming and it contains some of the best Microgaming slots in its network.

Mega Moolah has a four tier progressive jackpot. The Mega Progressive jackpot starts at 1 million credits. At the time of release in November 2006, Mega Moolah was possibly the only jackpot that reset at this high level. The other jackpots are Major Progressive starting at 10,000 credits, Minor Progressive starting at 100 credits and Mini Progressive starting at 10 credits. A bonus round is randomly triggered and once that happens the player is guaranteed one of the four progressive jackpots. He has to activate a Wheel of Fortune kind of wheel that contains different colored bands for the different progressive jackpots of Mega Moolah. When the wheel stops the colored band next to the arrow indicates which jackpot is hit.

When Microgaming launched Mega Moolah in November 2006 the Mega Progressive jackpot ticker began with 1 million credits. This part of the discussion relates to the Mega Progressive jackpot only. By November 2007 the jackpot ticker amount had increased to 4.3 million, when the jackpot was hit for the first time. This indicated that the jackpot had risen by just under 10,000 credits a day. The jackpot amount was reset to 1 million credits. The next hit took place within five months. In April 2008 Mega Moolah was hit for an amount of 5.6 million credits. This was unprecedented in the history of online gaming. Also during this period the average daily increase in the jackpot amount was almost 30,000 credits. This kind of daily average growth rate has not been since even on Mega Moolah after this period. The next hit on Mega Moolah was even larger and it stands as the record for the largest progressive jackpot hit till today. The hit occurred in May 2009 and the amount was 6.4 million credits. Slot games are unpredictable in nature. Fans of Mega Moolah were prepared to wait for one more year and were hoping that the progressive jackpot amount would cross the 7 million mark. However destiny willed otherwise and Mega Moolah registered two quick hits very close to the reset level. In July 2009 and in October 2009 the jackpot hit for about 1.2 million credits. The jackpot ticker currently stands at 2.5 million credits and Mega Moolah has everyone guessing. Will it make someone a millionaire seven times over some months down the line or will it hit tomorrow?

The original Mega Moolah launched in November 2006 was a stand alone slot game with an African safari theme. By the end of 2008 the popularity of Mega Moolah was indisputable. Therefore Microgaming decided to add other online slot games and create a Mega Moolah network. Instead of creating completely new slot games for this purpose, Microgaming adapted some of its popular games. In January 2009 Five Reel Drive was connected to the Mega Moolah network. This was followed by Summertime in May 2009 and Isis in August 2009. Thereafter there has been no addition to the Mega Moolah network. And this is yet another mystery that is plaguing the players. Has Microgaming decided to stop at four slot games in the Mega Moolah network or is another addition around the corner? Only time will tell.

The Mega Moolah video slot game is epic in terms of video slots games online. There was a time where you were hearing in the media at least in terms of on gambling sites that a player won a million here and then a player won a few million there. It's definitely a game that I love to and enjoy playing myself. The fact that they've broken it out into separate versions just as joyfulplayer mentions is great and makes playing the game just that much more enjoyable and entertaining to play!

Mega Moolah is a fantastic online casino game. I really like Microgaming's approach with this game in the sense that they've created several variants of the same game based partly on some existing games that they have. For example the summertime and isis games were regular games in their casino before they made Mega moolah versions of them which I think is quite a good idea and a good way to represent the cross over from one to the other!
