Mega Moolah Slot Review

The Mega Moolah jackpot slot comes with 5 reels, 3 rows, and 25 fixed paylines. To form a winning combination, you need 3 or more matching symbols across a pay line, starting from reel 1. With the 2 highest value symbols and the wild, you only need 2 in combination.

Playable from 25p to £6.25 per spin, you can select the AutoPlay function where between 10 and 100 auto-spins can be used. There’s also a Lightning Bolt icon next to the Spin button for fast spins. In settings, you can choose to play with or without sounds too.

Low variance, comes with a 46.36% hit frequency rate. This means nearly half of your spins will result in a winning combination. Jackpots aside, the max win is 1,955 x your total stake per free spin.

The Mega Moolah RTP is 93.42% overall. 88.12% is for the slot without the progressive jackpot. The 4 jackpots contribute 5.3% overall. This is about average for a jackpot game.

The Mega Moolah slot was released in November 2006 so has been around for a very long time. A classic amongst classics, it has an African safari theme. Set amongst the infamous Serengeti, the design is done cartoon style. The graphics and colourful and bright.

The soundtrack is that of a traditional African tribe which ties in with the theme nicely. Despite its veteran status, Microgaming has revamped Mega Moolah a few times to make the graphics and animations sharper and high definition.

On the reels, you’ll see colourful A to 10 symbols alongside higher-paying wild animals. They include Kudu, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, and elephant. The highest paying symbol is the elephant as 2, 3, 4, or 5 on a pay line will pay 0.24, 2, 10, or 30 times your stake.

The lion symbol is the wild. This pays 0.6, 5, 60, or 600 times your stake for 2, 3, 4, or 5 in combination as well as substituting for all the standard symbols. Land a lion wild as part of a winning combination with a standard symbol and the payout receives a 2x multiplier boost and is doubled. 

Without the progressive element, the Mega Moolah slot would still be an attractive proposition. This is because the 3x multiplier in the Free Spins feature can lead to 1,955 x stake payouts per free spin. The simple design, straightforward features, and low volatility make for a solid if rather unspectacular slot.

Add the progressive jackpot into that mix and it becomes a much more playable proposition. It might be an oldie but Mega Moolah has stood the test of time. If you want an old-school slot that can deliver knockout rewards, then the Mega Moolah slot is still worth considering.
