This title offers the bare bones of bonus features, with the progressive jackpot packing most of the excitement.
Landing three bonus symbols on reels 1, 3, and 5 will award you 8 free spins. During the bonus round, a win multiplier is active that starts at 1x and increases by +1 with each free spin. When a Plus One symbol appears during free spins, you will be awarded an extra free spin.
When Bell icons appear attached to other symbols on reels 2, 3, or 4, they trigger the Mega Moolah Wheel. The wheel will appear on the screen and spin to award you one of four guaranteed progressive jackpots. The Mini, Minor, Major, and Mega jackpots seed at $10, $100, $10,000, and $2,000,000, respectively. The game rewards high rollers, so the higher your bet, the more chance you have of getting a spin of the wheel.
Mega Moolah Lucky Bells slot spares the bells and the whistles for a stripped-down progressive prize chase. There isn’t anything remarkable about this slot’s appearance or gameplay. `This is a solidly presented classic slots experience with no embellishments to distract you from your primary goal of spinning and winning.
The free spins bonus round comes with a progressive multiplier, and constant retriggers. This was great for intermediate wins that balanced out my bankroll after a series of hits and misses. The lack of design effort and features assumes (correctly) that most players have the singular goal of cracking the Mega jackpot prize and walking away from a millionaire. Microgaming has done better with this series.
Mega Moolah, The Witch’s Moon, delivers an immersive thematic experience with an extra bonus feature thrown in and Sherlock & Moriarty Wowpot! offers thrilling respin-fuelled gameplay with Microgaming’s other progressive network. This is an okay effort from Microgaming, but they could do better.
