For those who are new to the title, Mega Moolah was developed by Microgaming and it was the first ever slots game with a four-tier progressive jackpot. The original version had a cartoon safari theme which is still very popular, but other versions with different themes can also be played.
The four progressive jackpots offered by Mega Moolah are referred to as the Mini, Minor, Major and Mega, and have starting values of £10, £100, £10,000 and £1,000,000, respectively. It is the Mega jackpot that is currently worth over £5.27 million, and that prize can be landed on any Mega Moolah game, regardless of the theme. Talking of themes again, here are the four that are currently on offer:
Mega Moolah is the original title with a cartoon safari theme. Anyone who has been playing online slots for any length of time will no doubt be familiar with its iconic Lion, Monkey, Elephant, Giraffe and other African animal symbols.
Mega Moolah 5 Reel Drive has a motoring theme, which means that it is perfect for anyone who likes fast cars. Take this title for a ride and you could be on a high-octane journey to the kind of wealth most people can only ever dream of!
Mega Moolah Summertime has a summertime theme, so players who want to bring more sunshine into their life can do so by spending some time playing this game. Get lucky and you could win more than enough to spend the rest of your days in sunnier climes.
Mega Moolah Isis has a theme that is inspired by Isis, who just happens to be an ancient Egyptian goddess who is associated with love and fertility. Thanks to this game she may also make you rich.
All of the above titles can be played at any online casino that is powered by Microgaming (such as 32Red, for example) and you can also play Mega Moolah on mobile devices if you prefer that format. Whatever platform you play on, and no matter which theme you prefer, you will be in with a chance of winning the same progressive Mega jackpot.
The previous jackpot payout before the one that took place last month was in November 2014, when a mobile player in the USA won $3.3 million, and the last UK win was in September 2013, when a player won £3.7 million. We don’t know how long it will be before the current Mega Moolah jackpot is landed, but it will keep climbing until it is, so watch this space for news of the eventual winner and good luck to those of you who are hoping to make the headlines!
