How The Mega Moolah Jackpot Works

The Mega Moolah is split into a base game and a progressive jackpot round (see section below which covers this in detail)

  • Start off by setting your bet size between 0.25 and the max $6.25. Hit the Spin Button.
  • Winning combinations are formed when 2 to 5 matching symbols show up on an active payline.
  • The Wild Symbol is represented by the Lion,. The wild Lion Symbol replaces any other symbol except a Scatter to complete a series. When this happens the amount you win is doubled.
  • The Scatter Symbol is represented by a Monkey. If two Scatters appear on any symbol it pays-out. If you hit 3 Scatters you will trigger 15 FREE SPINS.
  • The FREE SPINS round has a 3X multiplier, which means any winnings during this round will be multiplied by 3. Note: You will not be able to trigger the Jackpot Wheel during this round.
  • The base game jackpot stands at a descent sum of 10,000x

How to Win the Mega Moolah Jackpot

There isn’t an actual winning line or symbol in the base game that will land you the Mega Moolah jackpot.

  • The jackpot bonus wheel game simply launches by complete chance, at any point during your gameplay.
  • When the jackpot bonus round launches you will be presented with the Jackpot Wheel.
  • Now before you get excited at the possibility of winning the big jackpot, you need to remember that there are 4 Jackpots that can be won namely; Mini , Minor, Major and Mega.

The above image is a screen shot taken from the actual Mega Moolah Jackpot wheel during Gameplay. Note how each of the Jackpots are colour coded:

  • Mini Jackpot - Red with zebra footprints represents the Mini jackpot which starts at $10.
  • Minor Jackpot - Orange with giraffe footprints represents the Minor jackpot which starts at $100.
  • Major Jackpot - Yellow with elephant footprints represents the Major jackpot which starts at $10,000.
  • Mega Moolah Jackpot - White with a lion footprint represents the Mega jackpot which starts at $1 Million.

As with any slot game your odds of winning the Mini or Minor are far higher. The Mega Jackpot is represented by a single, white segment, making it an understandably elusive prize with only a 5% probability of landing on it. The mini jackpot was far easier to land with the likelihood of getting it sitting at 50%.

Usefull Tips Take note

The bonus wheel can be triggered on any wager. But the likelihood of it happening more often, increases if a bet is placed on the maximum number of lines.

⇨ Play for the Mega Moolah Jackpot with $1 and get 80 Chances to Win!


The magic of Mega Moolah slot is its broad appeal. In my opinion, even without the progressive prize, it is a solid game with a rewarding free spins round boosted by multipliers and high-value symbol wins that awarded me satisfying wins, with the potential of scoring up to $28 125 for landing 5 wilds during free spins.

The graphics and animation still hold up, despite being over 15 years old and the progressive jackpot’s allure is easy to see, considering the scores of multi-millionaires that this jackpot network has created over the years. I would consider playing this title a rite of passage for anyone who considers themselves an online slot enthusiast because who knows, you could be the next Mega Millionaire to walk away with a historic prize.
