Mega Moolah Slot Review
Just hearing the name, Mega Moolah, doesn’t particularly give you much insight in to what the game is about or any kind of theme behind it. Sure, the title gives you the idea that vast amounts of money can be won by playing the game, and it’s actually known as one of the most popular progressive jackpots in existence. In fact, it’s probably paid out a lot more times than many other such games out there. However, as far as the game is concerned, it takes the theme of wild animals and tribal people and presents them in a fairly entertaining way. As far as the jackpots of the game are concerned, you can see these increasing all the time at the top of the reels. There are four of these in total. Sometimes Microgaming can be a little bit lacking in the added sound effects of their games, but Mega Moolah has some wild animal sounds to accompany your game play, which gives it a little bit more authenticity. Furthermore, it’s set against a backdrop of plains and wild trees, so all in all, the product is packaged and presented in a visually pleasing way.
Animals and Money
So, while the title doesn’t really spell out what the theme of the game is, it doesn’t really matter so much because animal games are enjoyed by everyone, right? It’s actually presented on what should by now be a familiar type of layout – five reels and three rows. It’s here that you’ll get to see the various different icons included in it, and these start with the A, J, K, Q and 10 symbols, all of which are presented in vibrant colours. Accompanying these on the reels are six different animal icons, and these exist in the form of an antelope, a zebra, a giraffe, a buffalo, an elephant and a lion. One or two other symbols have also been added to the game to provide it with its special feature rounds.
As well as the reels, rows and icons, Mega Moolah also contains a selection of 25 different pay lines, although these can easily be customised by making use of the ‘Select Lines’ button, or by pressing on one of the numbers down either side of the reels. Furthermore, players are able to adjust the amount of the wager that they place per spin, and this is done first of all by changing the value of a single coin between $0.01 and $0.05. And if you alter the amount of coins wagered per bet line, you’ll be able to spin each round with a maximum overall wager of 125 coins.
Win That Progressive Jackpot!
While we would all love to win one of the four jackpots on offer, the game also has one or two other features included in it to make game play more entertaining. The aforementioned symbol of the lion, for example, is the game’s wild icon. This will, of course, substitute for all other icons on the reels in order to form a winning combination, with the exception of scatters. Should you manage to spin five of these on to a winning pay line, you’ll receive a maximum pay out of 15,000 coins.
When it comes to the scatter symbol, this is represented by the tribal woman, and these particular icons offer a pay out wherever they appear on the reels. Should you manage to spin three or more of them in to view, you’ll be rewarded with 15 freespins, and any wins that you’re able to form during this round will be tripled.
Now, the final addition to this game is the previously noted progressive jackpots, and one of these is able to be won via the bonus round. In order to access this, there aren’t any particular symbols that you need to spin, because it is actually triggered at random. The higher your wager is per round, the stronger the chance of winning a jackpot is. The bonus round takes you to a wheel of fortune, and you simply need to spin it in order to see if it will land on a big pay out for you.
Can You be the Next Big Winner?
On the surface, Mega Moolah might not look like much of a different game to most others, but the fact that it has those four boxes of huge pay outs ever increasing at the top of the reels is a big enough perk for us to play it. Not only that, but it’s a visually pleasing enough game, and it’s special features are nicely incorporated as well.
