Well now, Wombat Fans, it’s time to meet the King of all games in Slot Land; the Mega Moolah slot.
This game is sometimes referred to as the ‘The Millionaire Maker’ because of its reputation for dishing out life-changing wins. This classic slot from Games Global (formerly Microgaming) does what it says on the tin: it pays out mega moolah thanks to one of the biggest progressive jackpots around.
Tens of millions of dollars have been paid out over the past few years.
Aside from the mind-boggling sums of cold hard cash on offer, this is also a great little slot with a jungle and wild animal theme.
So, brace yourselves slot fans, we’re going in! Let’s head to the plains and see what this famous game is all about.
Look and Feel
When you fire up Mega Moolah you’ll find yourself deep in the savannah on safari with the African plains as your backdrop.
The soundtrack to your spins is all manner of wild animal noises. Overall it’s a good-looking game, but we know you’re not here for the graphics…
Mega Moolah slot has five reels, three rows and twenty-five pay lines. Your symbols on the reels are all safari-related and are made up of an ibis, a zebra, a giraffe, a buffalo, an elephant and a lion, while your low-value symbols are the standard 10, J, Q, K & A playing cards.
There are plenty of Games Global progressive jackpot games, such as the Lotsaloot slot and Treasure Nile, but Mega Moolah is the Big One.
The King of the Plains symbol is the lion which is the Wild in this slot and will substitute for all other symbols on the reels to help you land more winning combos – it will boost your win with a x2 multiplier.
The red Monkeys are the scatter symbols and fifteen free spins are up for grabs if you land at least three of these cheeky primates anywhere on the reels.
The bonus can be re-triggered, and during the free spins bonus, you’ll get a 3x boost on your winnings.
Mega Moolah Progressive Jackpots
Now, let’s get down to business! The Mega Moolah slot attracts players thanks to its big progressive jackpot payouts and like many jackpots of this nature, they are set off at random. It’s nail-biting!
That said, the higher your bet, the greater the chance of a trigger and you will see the four different jackpot totals – the Mini, the Minor, the Major and the Mega – ticking up as you play the game.
If you’re lucky enough to set off the jackpot game, you will be given the chance to spin a coloured wheel.
Here you aim to land the Mega jackpot by landing on the one white segment that is present on the wheel once it has finished spinning. Get it right and mega riches could be yours!

And best of all, even if you don’t scoop the massive win, the lucrative multipliers make this slot well worth playing anyway. Give it a go! And good luck!
Wombat score: 4.5/5
With this much money on the table, it’s worth a flutter at least.
