Microgaming and Triple Edge Studios have teamed up to create the latest in the Mega Moolah franchise: Absolootly Mad Mega Moolah. Its predecessors have been incredibly popular with slots players, so it’s no surprise that Microgaming is continuing to roll out new and different versions. Absolootly Mad is certainly a new and different take, centering on the Mad Hatter theme and featuring Rolling Reels, Free Spins, and a jackpot wheel. While the graphics are a bit childish, the features more than makeup for it. Check it out at Microgaming online casinos.
Absolootly Mad Mega Moolah is a 5-reel, 3-row, 243-ways-to-win progressive jackpot slot that’s playable on all devices. Bets range from €.20 to €50 per spin and the slot is medium volatility. The RTP is 92.02%, low for standard slots but fairly usual for progressive jackpots.
Symbols include lower-paying 10-A royals and higher-paying pocket watches, teacups, butterflies on cupcakes, white rabbits, Cheshire Cat cakes, and Mad Hatters. The latter is the highest-paying, rewarding 10x the stake for 5 of a kind.
The Rolling Reels feature is enacted during the base game. Winning symbols disappear to make space for new ones to fall, creating more winning opportunities. At the same time, the Multiplier Trail kicks in, which means that initial wins get a 1x multiplier and increase each time the reels roll, up to 5x. The multiplier resets when the rolls end and a new spin starts.
When 3 door scatters land on the reels, the Free Spins round is triggered. Players get 8 free spins and the Multiplier Trail starts at 3x, increases by 3, and can go up to 15x. The free spins can be retriggered for up to 48 additional free spins.
While Rolling Reels and the Multiplier Trail are nice and certainly solid base-game features, the progressive jackpot is really what this game is all about. When a golden hat wild appears, it is collected in a golden teapot above the reels. When a Rolling Reels feature ends, the Progressive Wheel can randomly activate and take players to a jackpot wheel that has 20 segments, including 4 jackpots.
The Mini Jackpot starts at £10, the Minor Jackpot starts at £100, the Major Jackpot starts at £10,000, and the Mega Jackpot starts at £1,000,000. All of these increase with each wager of every player until someone wins one, and then it gets reset to the minimum.
Microgaming did well to partner with Triple Edge Studios — they did an excellent job creating the next big hit in the Mega Moolah series. The attraction of the Mega Jackpot is enough to draw even the most down-to-earth players to the cleverly-named Absolootly Mad Mega Moolah. And even if players don’t hit the jackpot, they can still strike a max win of 2,343x the stake from the base game features and free spins.
