Atlantean Treasures: Mega Moolah Online slot by Microgaming is a medium volatility 5×3 reel slot with 10 fixed paylines. This is Microgaming’s first new chapter in the famous Mega Moolah series in a decade and experienced gamers will immediately notice the similarity in gameplay to the classic title, Starburst. This progressive jackpot slot is themed around the fabled, lost civilisation of Atlantis with the glassy reels set against an ancient city in the ocean’s murky depths.
The symbols are similarly underwater-themed with a magical touch, and the four progressive jackpots available are set to the left of the reels, above a glowing, golden clam. You can expect expanding wilds, respins and a progressive jackpot wheel which holds the sought-after Mega Moolah network jackpots. You can wager anything from 0.10 to 200.00 and you will be able to play this title across all devices.
A seahorse, sea star, pink and purple fish and seaweed are the lower-value symbols here.
- The pink and purple fishes pay 12x and 10x, respectively for 5 on a line.
- The Seahorse and seaweed pay up to 8x and 5x for 5 on a line.
- The sea star pays 5x for five of a kind.
A bar symbol and lucky 7 make up the higher value symbols.
- The Bar is the most lucrative symbol, paying out up to 50x for five-of-a-kind.
- You can get up to a 24x payout for five of a kind of Lucky 7.
A pink-haired mermaid acts as the wild symbol and stands in for all regular symbols.
Landing the mermaid wild on reels 2, 3 or 4, causes this symbol to expand and fill up the entire reel. This will simultaneously activate a respin, locking the wild in place and allowing the rest of the reels to spin for potential winning combos. Respins can be re-triggered up to 3 times.
At random, progressive trigger pearls will appear on regular symbols and be accumulated in a giant clam that sits on the left of the reels. It is unclear at this stage how many pearls you need, but this accumulation will eventually trigger the Progressive jackpot wheel mode. When the jackpot wheel appears, it will spin and you will win one of four progressive jackpot prizes;
• The mini jackpot begins at $10
• The minor jackpot begins at $100
• The major jackpot begins at $10,000
• The mega jackpot begins at $1 million
It has been indicated that the size of your wager will directly influence your chances of accessing the jackpot wheel, so don’t be afraid to pump those bets up!
Atlantean treasures: Mega Moolah slot won’t necessarily impress you with its base game. There is a respectable 500x your stake to be had if you can fill the middle slots with wilds and the outer slots with high-paying symbols. While that might be enough for some, you are likely to choose this slot for your chance at a minimum of $1 million for the Mega progressive jackpot prize. Microgaming certainly could have put more effort into the parts of the game that don’t include the progressive jackpots, but it is doubtful that anyone will complain about the comparatively small base prizes or the low RTP of 92.08%, which is typical for progressive jackpot slots.
With the addition of Atlantean Treasures: Mega Moolah to the fold, Microgaming now offer six different games yielding the coveted Mega Moolah prize: The original Mega Moolah, Mega Moolah Isis, Mega Moolah 5-Reel Drive, Mega Moolah Summertime, Mega Vault Millionaire and now Atlantean Treasures: Mega Moolah.
