Launched in 2007, Mega Moola was the first online slot machine to offer a base jackpot of $1,000,000. It is a definite sign that the online gaming world is fast catching up with land-based casinos.
The game has an African jungle theme and two bonus games. There are four progressive jackpots on offer which are all won by the randomly activated wheel bonus.
Progressive prizes range from $10 to over $1,000,000. The jackpot has gone over $5,000,000. Mega Moola is a 25 line video slot found that is part of the Microgaming progressive jackpot network.
Unlike most progressive slots you don't have to play max bet to win the top jackpot. The game comes in three coin sizes ($0.01, $0.02 and $0.05) and has a 125 coin max bet. The great thing is that for as little as $0.25 you can have a shot at the jackpots.
There are four progressive jackpot levels which are, Mega ($1,000,000+), Major ($10,000+), Minor ($100+) and Mini ($10+). The jackpots are won on the Wheel of Fortune style bonus which can be randomly activated at the end of any spin. You then spin the wheel and win the amount indicated.
Mega Moola also has a free spin bonus game where you win 15 free spins with all wins tripled. On the reels you can win up to 75,000 coins if you line up five wilds.
With the launch of this game it is clear that the online gaming companies are going to challenge the big jackpot networks such as IGT's Mega Jackpots.
