How to autoplay the Mega Moolah slot
One of the most useful tools you can use when playing the progressive jackpot slot Mega Moolah, is the autoplay feature.
Used properly, this item can be a very quick and easy way to budget your sessions on the slot much more effectively and it can free up time for you to be doing other things, while you are still having those reels spinning and a chance to trigger the jackpot bonus game.
So before we learn more about the autoplay feature on Mega Moolah in particular and how it can be useful for players, lets learn exactly what it is.
What is autoplay?
Autoplay is a simple feature that most modern slot games, such as Mega Moolah, have available for players to use. Although the exact options available in autoplay vary from slot to slot and casino to casino, they all basically work around the same principle.
That principle is that you can set your stake amount per spin and then set a number of spins which the software will then play through for you. So for example on Mega Moolah, this may be 100 spins at 0.25 per spin.
The software then will play through these spins without you having to click in the Spin button each time in order to set the spins in motion. Once you click the button with autoplay enabled, all the subsequent spins will occur once the previous one has finished.
With the Mega Moolah autoplay, you can also select parameters for when autoplay should finish (such as after you have lost a certain amount of money).
The autoplay feature is located at the bottom of the reels next to the two different buttons for the size of your stake and the number of pay lines in play. Clicking on autoplay will activate the feature and allow you to set the parameters you want for the autoplay session.
Some FAQ's about autoplay
- Can I still win the progressive jackpot when I play using autoplay?
Yes, all the features and wins you can access on the Mega Moolah progressive slot, including all the top base game wins and of course, the Jackpot Bonus Game are all fully accessible when you play using autoplay.
If you happen to trigger the Jackpot Bonus Game during autoplay the bonus game will launch over the reels and wait for you to hit the spin button. It will remain in this state waiting for your spin.
- What happens if my money runs out when I'm using autoplay?
Perhaps one of the biggest misconceptions people have about autoplay is what will happen if they run out of cash before their designated number of spins set up in autoplay is completed. Some people believe, erroneously, that once you set up autoplay, you need to play through the spins set initially.
That is not the case, if you run out of cash when playing autoplay, or your balance drops below what the cost of a single spin at the current stake level costs, then the autoplay feature will automatically come to an end.
You can never run up a debt using an autoplay feature as it will only ever use the funds you have available in your account. Furthermore, if you budget sensibly, autoplay is a superb way of ensuring that you stick to the budget for your session.
For example, if you want to spend £25 on a hundred 0.25 spins on Mega Moolah, you can play spinning the reels yourself and count your 100 spins (which isn't easy). Alternatively, you can put autoplay on and spin through 100 spins and regardless of how much you win, you will always play through 100 spins (assuming you have the cash in your account to pay for them).
- Is it easy to cancel autoplay when I am able to spin the slot manually?
Yes, the autoplay feature on the slot can be cancelled at any time, regardless of how many spins you wanted it to play through initially. You can simply click on the Spin button when the autoplay feature is enabled and this will cancel the feature once the current spin has ended.
This also means that should you be playing on autoplay and you land a sizeable win that you wish to cash out immediately, you can simply stop the feature and then start the process to withdraw your money from your account.
Should you trigger the Jackpot Bonus game when you are playing in autoplay mode the main game will come to an end stopping your autoplay and will wait for you to spin the jackpot wheel.
- Has anybody ever won the Mega Moolah jackpot when playing using autoplay?
Unfortunately, the mode that the game was being played in when a player lands the Mega Moolah top progressive jackpot prize, the Mega Jackpot, is not recorded in the details for that win. However, from players testimony when they are interviewed following their win, you can gleam an idea of how they were playing the game.
There is one story of a player who was playing the slot and then left their iPad on the table while they needed to visit the bathroom. When they came back, they saw that the autoplay spins had triggered the Jackpot Bonus game and on that spin, the player landed the Mega Moolah top jackpot prize.
However, it is difficult to confirm the veracity of this story, although there is no reason for the player to have misrepresented how they landed the jackpot prize.
Given that autoplay is used widely, especially by more experienced slot players, who will often block off a certain amount of money to play through on the Mega Moolah slot and then use autoplay to play through it, it is almost certain that other jackpot winners have been triggered by players using the autoplay function. However due to the no-publicity clause they have available to them, it is extremely difficult to verify this for certain.
- What's the best thing about autoplay?
The best aspects of the autoplay feature on the Mega Moolah slot (or indeed any slot that offers this particular function), is that it makes it so much easier to budget for your session than it is when you simply click for the spins to play.
The other great aspect of autoplay is that you can set the reels in motion and then busy yourself doing something else while they spin, which is handy if you have to get something else done, but also want to try and land a big win on the slot in the meantime. It makes multitasking in this way so much simpler.
Add to that how controllable it is and how much easier it is to limit your spending, it is not surprising that many seasoned slots players choose to use autoplay when playing Mega Moolah or any other progressive.
