Here We Go Again: Mega Moolah Jackpot Passes $10 MillionPublished April 4, 2016 by Mike P
Mega Moolah served up a world-record jackpot back in October 2015, and yet again it has climbed beyond $10 million at Microgaming casinos. Are we en route to another Guinness-record breaking win?
This looks like it could be a tense week at Microgaming casinos, given that the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot has surpassed the $10 million mark. Having not been won for five months, the jackpot is ready to pay out at any moment. A payout right now would set up an excellent summer for the eventual winner.
Mega Moolah is a progressive slot that generally pays out extremely large jackpots. For reference, the win from five months ago actually turned out to be a Guinness world record. Former soldier John Heywood transformed his life by winning an incredible $20 million while playing Mega Moolah at Betway Casino.
Since October 2015, the jackpot has climbed steadily to present this latest life-changing possibility. And although the current $10 million jackpot is still below the world record, there can be no denying that many players will currently be eyeing Mega Moolah.
Exploring the Mega Moolah Slot
Microgaming is the developer that created Mega Moolah, which has been a staple of the company’s gaming library for a few years now. After being optimised for the mobile age, players now get to experience the five-reel slot on smartphones or tablets.
The style of the game is certain to appeal to lovers of wildlife, considering the slot is set on a safari park in Africa, populated by animals that appear as the symbols. In the core gameplay, the symbols can be matched over the 25 paylines to build up winnings.
To win the progressive jackpot, players need to make it to a bonus round where they can win one of four guaranteed jackpots. These are tiered, with the largest being the overall jackpot. In addition to the progressive, there are other special features, including wild symbols that can appear in place of missing symbols, while scatters can trigger 15 free spins. Some places where players can try their luck at the Mega Moolah slot include All Slots Casino, Jackpot City Casino and Royal Vegas Casino.
