Mega Moolah winning combinations and payouts

When you play the jackpot slot Mega Moolah, the ultimate aim for any player is to win some money. However, it is easy for players to become fixated on the games massive progressive jackpot prize and perhaps forget that there are lots of other ways that you can win cash playing the slot.

And many of these methods of winning can offer you a sizeable cash prize in their own right too.

In this article, we are going to explore the many different ways you can win cash on the Mega Moolah slot, both by looking at the ways you can win money playing the standard Mega Moolah game and of course, what will happen and what you can win if you manage to trigger the Jackpot Bonus game.

So let's begin with a brief recap of the basics of the Mega Moolah slot.

Mega Moolah - The Basics

Mega Moolah is a 25-line slot with 5 reels in play. The highlight of the slot is its four progressive jackpots, the Mini, Minor, Major and the big one, the Mega jackpot, with the latter of these being the highest paying by a considerable margin.

Players can play up to 25 lines per spin, but to stand a chance of winning any of the progressive jackpots, you must be playing with all 25 lines in play with the minimum stake of 0.01 per line (0.25 per spin). Players can wager more per bet if they so choose and if they do, then their chances of triggering the random Jackpot Bonus game increase as the size of their stake increases.

There are essentially two ways you can win cash on the Mega Moolah slot, in the standard way using the slots base game and slot bonuses, and the special Jackpot Bonus Game, which can be triggered entirely at random on any given spin.

Let's now learn a little more about the standard slot pays you can land on the Mega Moolah slot.

Mega Moolah - Standard Game Wins

Mega Moolah is like any other slot game in that if you land a certain progression of symbols across the reels, then you will win a cash prize. The amount you win is stated in coins, so the size of your coin will determine the actual cash value of your win. So if your coin is set at 0.01 and your win is 10 coins, then the cash value of that win is 0.10 in your chosen currency. If the coin you play is 0.10 and you win a 10-coin prize, then the cash value of that win is 1.00 and so forth.

In the base game of the slot you can win cash by landing successive symbols across one of the available lines from left to right across the reels. The full list of pay outs available, together with the symbols and the coin value win for each is shown in the table below:

The Lion symbol is not just the highest paying symbol in the base game but also acts as a Wild and can replace any of the other standard symbols shown on the reels. Furthermore, trigger any win with a Lion as a Wild and the value of the win is doubled thanks to a 2x multiplier being applied to the win.

  • Scatter

The monkey symbol is the Scatter in the game and when you land three or more of these symbols, then you will be given access to the Free Spins bonus game. In addition to that, the Scatter also pays out a cash prize based on your total bet when landed two or more times anywhere across the reels.

The prizes you win for landing two or more scatters are as follows:

  • 2 Scatters - 2x your total bet
  • 3 Scatters - 3x your total bet
  • 4 Scatters - 20x your total bet
  • 5 Scatters - 100x your total bet

In addition to this, if you land three or more scatters you then trigger the Free Spins bonus game which offers you the chance of further wins.

  • Free Spins

When you trigger Free Spins, you will land 15 Free Spins, which can be re-triggered from within the bonus by landing three or more Scatter symbols once again. During Free Spins, the standard reels are used and the stake used to play Free Spins is the same stake as you used to trigger it in the first place.

During Free Spins, all wins are subject to a 3x multiplier, which means any standard win from the table above, would pay out 3x that amount if landed during Free Spins.

By using a combination of multiple wins across several lines and the multipliers available during the base game and Free Spins, it is possible to win up to 225,000 coins playing the Mega Moolah slot, without triggering the Jackpot Bonus game.

Mega Moolah - The Jackpot Bonus Game

One of the most exciting things about the Mega Moolah slot is that the game comes in two distinct forms. There is the standard slot, the major pays of which we have outlined above and there is then of course, the entirely separate Jackpot Bonus Game.

This is randomly triggered on any spin in the base game and there is nothing a player can do to influence this, other than increase the size of their stake to give them a slightly greater chance of triggering the bonus game on their spins.

Once the jackpot bonus game is triggered, then the reels are replaced on screen by a wheel, which is divided into sectors. Each of the four different coloured sectors corresponds to one of the four progressive jackpot prizes available in the game.

The Red sector is the Mini progressive jackpot prize, which offers prizes starting at a seed amount of 10.00. This is the jackpot prize which is won most often and in truth, it is triggered every few minutes somewhere in the world.

The Orange sectors on the reel correspond to the Minor progressive prize, which is still seeded at 100.00, which is a considerable sum of money for many players. This progressive prize is awarded a little less frequently than the Red sector prize, although it it still triggered, usually, several times each day.

The Yellow sectors are where things start to get more interesting as these are the Major progressive jackpot sectors. Land in these sectors and you can expect to take home a cash prize starting at 10,000 in the currency you are playing in. This prize is not awarded too often and the size of the prize can grow to a much larger amount than the 10,000 seed prize. It is usually won a few times each week.

The single White sector on the reel however is the one that everybody wants to land. This is the Mega Progressive jackpot prize, the one which has recently set a new World Record for the largest ever online slot progressive jackpot paid out to a player. This jackpot prize is guaranteed to be at least 1,000,000, but often grows to far in excess of that amount with the record cash prize being won amounting to $19.2 million in American dollars.

The bonus game is very simple, you just set the wheel in motion and whatever sector the pointer comes to rest in, will be the jackpot prize that you win.

Remember, all jackpots on Mega Moolah are also paid as a lump sum to the winner, which is another attractive aspect of the game, especially if you can land one of the really big cash prizes on offer in the bonus game or base game.

As you can see, Mega Moolah is much more than a one-trick-pony when it comes to offering players the chance of a pay out. With a number of different ways to win in the base game, plus those enticing four progressive jackpots, it is little wonder that this game is one of the most popularly played slots in the world today.
