Jackpot and Winning Odds

Mega Moolah doesn’t have a set jackpot in place, as it’s a progressive jackpot game. That means that the main jackpot will continue to rise until someone wins it, and theoretically, the potential prize on offer could reach any value. Of course, in practice, the jackpot gets paid out at some point, giving one player an incredible win.

Mega Moolah has given out jackpots of more than $10 million on a number of different occasions. This means that it’s one of the biggest-paying jackpot slots on the market. It also has the potential to pay out significantly more than a standard video slot game.

With four different jackpot levels available for Mega Moolah, it gives lots of ways to win. Let’s explore the different jackpots and what they can potentially offer to players:

Jackpot Sizes and Structure

  • Mega Progressive Jackpot - This is the highest-paying jackpot in Mega Moolah. It has a starting level of 1,000,000 credits, so that if a player wins it before it has grown to a significant level, they will still become a millionaire. The prize regularly grows to levels exceeding the $10 million mark.
  • Major Progressive Jackpot - This is one step below the mega progressive jackpot. This starts at 10,000 credits and increases in size until a player wins it.
  • Minor Progressive Jackpot - This is another step down, and so offers slightly smaller prizes. It starts at 100 credits and, like the other progressive jackpots, increases in size until someone wins it.
  • Mini Progressive Jackpot - This is the smallest jackpot on offer in Mega Moolah. It starts at 10 credits and increases in value from there. This prize is won the most often during play.

Winning Odds

The standard RTP for the regular slot portion of Mega Moolah is set at 88.12%. However, this doesn’t tell the full story of the game. It also includes a progressive jackpot, so there is an additional RTP tied to this. The progressive jackpot contributes an additional 8.8% towards the overall RTP of Mega Moolah.

This means that the theoretical RTP for Mega Moolah is set at 96.92%. This is obviously a much fairer amount than the standard 88.12% that’s in place for the base game.

Rules - How to Play

  • Coin size: Mega Moolah allows players to choose between having 1 and 25 paylines active. With a minimum coin size of $0.01 and a maximum coin size of $0.25, the wager range is set at between $0.01 and $6.25.
  • Symbols: Safari animals are the theme for all of the symbols in Mega Moolah. Each of the different symbol sets uses an animal as its basis.
  • Standard: Elephant, Bison, Giraffe, Zebra, Deer
  • Wild: Lion
  • Scatter: Spider

All payouts are multiplied by how much the player wagers per payline.

Symbol 2 on a payline 3 on a payline 4 on a payline 5 on a payline
Elephant 6 50 250 750
Bison 4 40 150 600
Giraffe - 30 125 500
Zebra - 20 100 400
Deer - 10 50 250
Lion 15 125 1,500 15,000
Spider 2 times total stake 3 times total stake 20 times total stake 100 times total stake

Although Mega Moolah is a progressive jackpot game, it’s built on top of a solid video slot game. The game itself is very simple to play - once you have chosen your stake and active paylines, you spin the reels to get started. There is a wild symbol which can substitute for any other symbol, and it’s the highest-paying symbol in the game if you fill a payline with them.

There’s also a scatter symbol, which pays out an instant win if you land two on the game board. If you land more than this, you will receive a cash prize and begin a bonus round. This awards 15 extra spins with a multiplier of three active throughout the duration of the feature. As an added plus, it can also be retriggered if you land enough scatters during the bonus.

There’s no specific trigger to activate the progressive jackpot when playing Mega Moolah — it’s a completely random action. This means that you could even take a spin, not land a winner, but the progressive jackpot round would still start. When the progressive jackpot round starts, you are guaranteed one of the different jackpots on offer. Going from Mini all of the way up to Mega, there’s a range of different prizes available to win.

The Mega jackpot is the one you are aiming for, as this is the one that pays out the biggest prizes. With a starting value of $1,000,000, you can claim incredible wins throughout the jackpot round.

Strategies and Tips

When playing Mega Moolah, there are no real tips to help make an impact on the way in which the game plays. However, there are certain things to consider with regards to increasing your chances of achieving the progressive jackpot. There are two main points to think about here.

Firstly, the higher your stake, the more chance there is of the progressive jackpot activating. So, if you play the game on full stake, you may have a better chance of grabbing that big prize.

The second strategy is related to bankroll management. Just like any slot game, the more spins you can perform, the more chance you may have of grabbing the big win. So, try to balance your stake between a high value and getting as many spins as you can.
