How can I win the Mega Moolah jackpot?
If you are seeking a magic key or lucky code to the internet's biggest progressive jackpot slot that ever existed, then you might be disappointed in this article. However, if on the other hand you are looking for some clear and unambiguous advice on how to increase your chances of landing the Jackpot Bonus Game (and thus a chance at winning that massive Mega Jackpot prize) then read on.
But let's ensure that we are all clearly understanding what the Mega Moolah game is and that you cannot cheat it, or take a short-cut to success like you used to be able to do on the older style home computer games.
Mega Moolah - No quick cheat code to success
I am old enough to remember the first time personal computing became massively popular in the 1980s. At that time the top machines were the likes of the ZX Spectrum and the Commodore machines Vic 20 and Commodore 64.
It was these machines that fuelled the growth in computing in the early days and that was because they enjoyed a massive catalogue of games, released over the years, which meant that players could play all sorts of games. Some classics of the era being the likes of Manic Miner, Jet Set Willy and my personal favourite, Wizards Lair.
What made these games so appealing was that not only were they easy to play, but they were easy to cheat on. Buy any magazine that came out each week for computer users and a healthy section of the magazine would be given over to codes you could use and cheats embedded into the game, that when activated made the game much easier, so that you could win if you were struggling playing the game the honest way.
Over the years, we've never lost that love for a good cheat. Even in today's modern console games, players have found ways to cheat the system, using bots and macro's to play for them, or using techniques such as switch lagging.
Now of course, it didn't take long for people to realise that if you could do this to the top games of today, then you could possibly try it on slot games, or other games where you win cash. However, that is not the case.
All games at reputable casinos, such as the Microgaming casinos that we promote on the MegaMoolah.com site, are all checked by a leading industry body called eCOGRA (www.ecogra.org). Their checks not only checek the veracity of the machine in terms of how it pays out, how much and how often but also that the coding is written as such that it cannot be altered, cheated or misused in anyway.
And even if there is something that all the brains at Microgaming and eCOGRA miss, there is a watertight rule that only genuine wins will be paid out. Any wins that are generated in error, or by wilful misuse by a player, will not be paid out. So even if you can cheat the game, you won't receive your winnings.
So no, despite what you may have read claiming otherwise, there is no quick and easy way to play the Mega Moolah slot and land a sizeable win.
But the good news is, there are some strategies you can employ to help you have a better chance to win the Mega Jackpot.
What can I do to increase my chances of winning the Mega Moolah jackpot?
Given that the Mega Moolah slot is watertight in terms of its security, the good news is that there are two simple ways you can increase your chances of winning the Mega Moolah slot and both are somewhat obvious if you have played slot games for any length of time.
- Play more spins on the Mega Moolah slot
Quite simply, the more spins you play on the game, then the more chances you have to win it. Play 10 spins on the game and you will have 10% of the chance of winning the jackpot as someone that plays 100 spins on Mega Moolah at the same stake level.
Now of course, that is relatively obvious, but what it means is that you can plan your sessions playing the Mega Moolah slot to coincide with the times when the jackpot is offering a sizeable prize (like at the time of writing where we are already over the 12.5 mlllion mark). In slots parlance, that gives you a higher positive expected value (+EV as it is called on some sites) than playing when the jackpot prize is at a lower amount.
It's important to note here that just because the jackpot is at a high number, it does not mean it will be won anytime soon, similarly, if the jackpot is at a lower number then there's no guarantee that it won't be won for a long time. Mega Moolah jackpots can be won months or even years apart. On the other hand, as happened on the 22nd May 2017, you can see two big jackpots won in the same day.
It is up to you how you choose to spend your money playing Mega Moolah as it can be won at any time, but the more spins you play, the more chances you have of triggering the Jackpot Bonus Game.
- Bet more per spin
The other way you can increase your chances of triggering the Jackpot Bonus Game on the Mega Moolah slot is to bet more per spin. The minimum bet you can make on the game to stand a chance of winning the progressive jackpot prize is 0.25, which is a 0.01 bet on each of the maximum 25 lines on the slot.
However, you can wager more than 0.25 on each bet by increasing the coin value of your bet and the more you bet on each spin, then the greater your chances are, proportionally, of triggering the jackpot bonus game.
So for example, if you usually play spins at the minimum bet level of 0.25 and then decide to start playing at 0.50 per spin, you have twice the number of chances per spin of landing the Jackpot Bonus Game. Up it to a larger figure, say 5.00 and you have 20 times as many chances of landing the Jackpot Bonus Game per spin as you have playing at 0.25 per spin.
Of course, the need for sensible budgeting remains in place, you should never bet more than you can afford to lose, but this information can be useful on deciding how much to bet. For most players that will likely be around the minimum bet amount, with higher rollers only likely to be betting the larger amounts per spin.
Winning Mega Moolah - The process explained
It is a simple two-step process to win the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot (or one of the four jackpots available).
- Make a qualifying spin of at least 0.25 and on that spin, trigger the Jackpot Bonus Game. This bonus feature can be triggered on any spin, at any time, any place, anywhere in the world regardless of the size of the jackpot or the time between wins.
- On the Jackpot Bonus Game, spin the wheel and when it comes to rest, the segment colour that the pointer is pointing to is the jackpot that you win. There are four jackpots available each of which has its own colour, Mini, Minor, Major and Mega.
Obviously, there are far more Mini and Minor segments on the wheel than Major and Mega as the prizes for the two larger jackpots are much higher, so they are won far less frequently (the Mini and Minor jackpots are triggered several times a day, the Major jackpot about once per day and the Mega jackpot, which is the big one, can be triggered months apart).
It sounds simple but you can play through many spins before you even trigger the Jackpot Bonus Game and then when you do, your chances of landing the Mega Jackpot prize are still very small. That isn't a fault in the game, it has to be designed that way to allow the jackpots to reach the sizes they do and for the game to remain profitable.
In a nutshell, that is how you win Mega Moolah, you have to play the game, get lucky on triggering the Jackpot Bonus Game and then get even luckier when spinning the wheel in that game to trigger the Mega jackpot prize. It sounds simple, but it is extremely difficult to achieve, that is why those that do, become instant millionaires.
And that is quite simply, what makes Mega Moolah one of the most appealing games you can play online today.
