Also, it’s not just fed by the Mega Moolah slot; it is fed by Mega Moolah Isis, Mega Moolah 5 Reel Drive, Mega Moolah Summertime, and The Dark Knight as well.

Mega Moolah is a flexible slot where you can adjust coin value, number of paylines to activate and how many coins to wager per activated payline (1-5 coins).

mega moolah 2The smallest possible coin value (in Euro) is €0.01 and the highest is €0.05.

You can activate (=wager on) anywhere from 1 to 25 paylines.

You also get to decide how many coins to wager per activated payline: 1 coin, 2 coins, 3 coins, 4 coins or 5 coins.

The smallest possible bet on Mega Moolah is €0.01 x 1 payline x 1 coin = €0.01 per round. The largest possible bet per round is €0.05 x 25 paylines x 5 coins = €6.25.

You have the chance to win any of the progressive jackpots on any bet, even on a €0.01 wager. However, your chance of winning a progressive jackpot will increase as the size of your wager increases. A person wagering €6.25 will have a considerably larger chance of winning a progressive Mega Moolah jackpot than someone wagering a mere €0.01.

Wild symbol

The mighty lion is a wild symbol and can substitute for any symbol except the scatter symbol.

When the lion, acting as a wild symbol, helps form a winning symbol combination, the lion will also function as a 2x multiplier. This means that the win is doubled.

Scatter symbol

The purple-face monkey with a red wig is a scatter symbol. If you get a minimum of three scatter symbols, anywhere on the reels, free spins mode is triggered.

Bonus symbol

There is no bonus symbol. The Mega Moolah bonus game is triggered randomly, not by any special symbols.

Free spins mode

The free spins mode consists of 15 free spins. It is possible to trigger free spins mode during free spins mode.

A 3x multiplier applies to all coin wins during free spins mode.

If you trigger the bonus game while in free spins mode, the 3x multiplier will not apply to any bonus game wins.

Bonus game

There is no special symbol combination that will trigger the Mega Moolah bonus game. Instead, it can be triggered anytime, regardless of the symbols on the reels. The bonus game can be triggered in the base game and in free spins mode.

You’ll clearly notice that the bonus game has been triggered because the reels will disappear from the screen and be replaced by a wheel of fortune. The wheel of fortune has 20 fields.

  • 10 of the fields have zebra tracks
  • 6 of the fields have giraffe tracks
  • 3 of the fields have elephant tracks
  • 1 of the fields has lion tracks

Each of the animals (or rather, their tracks) corresponds to a progressive jackpot. Once you have triggered the bonus game, you are guaranteed to win one of the four progressive jackpots.

If the wheel stops at any of the zebra fields, you win the Mega Moolah Mini Jackpot. If the wheel stops at any of the giraffe fields, you win the Mega Moolah Minor Jackpot. If the wheel stops at any of the elephant fields, you win the Mega Moolah Major Jackpot. If the wheel stops at the lion field, you win the Mega Moolah Mega Jackpot.
