Mega Moolah is an online slots game presented by well known Microgaming. The game is a 5 reel, 25 payline game with a progressive jackpot feature. The game is set on the plains of Africa featuring some of the BIG 5 animal counterparts as well as a few other animal characters as well. Players can expect wilds, scatters symbols and a few free bonus spins.
Mega Moolah Graphics and Sound Effects
The game itself is set on an African plain in the bush field and so the graphics naturally exert some of the Big 5 animals including lions, elephants, buffalo and some others such as giraffes, monkeys, zebra, and the kudu. The colour pallet of the background is set at dusk and so the colours are browns, oranges, and yellows. The animal symbols however are brightly coloured.
The sound effects are minimal with the soft sounds of exotic monkeys and birds adding to the African feel of this online slots game. If an animal sequence appears then a quirky animal sound relevant to the animal landed on will play for a few short seconds to mark the win. The wild is the lion and the scatter is the monkey symbol and if either of those present themselves then again a relevant sound will play, i.e. the lion will roar and the monkey will chatter.
Bets and Payouts
As with most slots at casinos online, to get started, players will have to select their credit size before spinning the reels. Bets are minimal and can be placed with 1 cent or up to 25 cents with each bet able to play 125 coins in total per bet. There is an autoplay feature as well as an option to bet the maximum amount for all the spins going forward. The game has a 95% payout ratio.
The standard symbols along with all the animal symbols can be expected including 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace.
Mega Moolah Jackpots x4
Mega Moolah online slots have 4 progressive jackpots. The bonus is activated randomly but the chance of hitting is increased dependent on the players betting size. The jackpot presents itself in the form of a wheel and the player will then need to spin that wheel which will land on any of the 4 jackpots. If a player wins the mini jackpot the payout won’t be less than £10, the minor jackpot won’t be less than £100, the major jackpot is set not to be less than £10 000, and the mega jackpot can reward the player with a minimum of £1 000 000.
The Wild and Free Spins Symbols
The wild in Mega Moolah is the great lion, every time a player lands one of these symbols, the lion will roar with pride. As with most other wild symbols the lion too can substitute for any other symbol making up a winning combination. In this case the players win will be doubled. The only symbol that the lion wild cannot substitute is the monkey scatter symbol.
The monkey scatter multiplies wins according to how many are presented on that specific spin. It can pay out 2, 3, 20 and up to a 100 times the win if 2, 3, 4 or 5 of the monkey scatter symbols are present. The monkey scatter also acts as a free spin feature. Every time a player lands on 3 or more monkey symbols then 15 free spins will be rewarded. All winning combinations won within those free spins will be multiplied by 3.
