Shake the winter blues with Mega Moolah Summertime slot!
How would a big 15 million-plus jackpot win sound to you? If that would banish the winter blues for ever and usher in a period of sunnier weather, then why not take your chances on landing the massive Mega Jackpot prize available on the Mega Moolah Summertime slot.
Along with Mega Moolah versions of Isis and 5 Reel Drive, alongside the original Mega Moolah game, Summertime offers its players the chance to play an enjoyable 5-reel, 9 pay line slot which has a top jackpot prize of 150x your betting stake in the base game which increases up to 450x your stake during the Free Spins bonus game.
Playable from just 0.09 per spin, you can wager more than that to increase your chances of triggering the Mega Moolah Jackpot Bonus game, where one spin of the wheel could see you win the massive Mega Moolah prize, which at the time of writing stands at 15 million plus, and which is always greater than 1 million.
So how does this slot game stand up to other games and is it worth investing a little of your time and money into playing a few spins? Let's take a closer look at the game and find out.

The presentation of the Mega Moolah Summertime slot is very simple in that it is just a blue backdrop, presumably a sunny blue sky, with the reels superimposed over this. The slot does have a retro feel with many familiar symbols on the reels from the good old days of slot gaming, such as plums, lemons, bars and 7 symbols.
The main controls of the slot are at the foot of the reels and there is a Bet Max and Autoplay option available alongside all the standard symbols. You can alter the size of your coin, the number of coins bet per line and the number of lines in play on each spin.
The sound is somewhat simplistic too but this does enhance the rather retro-styling of the slot and if you are a fan of retro slot games and would love to play one that offers you the chance of a huge jackpot win, then the Mega Moolah Summertime slot is the perfect choice for you.
What is on the reels?
There are a number of retro-styled symbols on the reels in the Mega Moolah Summertime slot. They include the lower value symbols which are the six different types of fruit and include plums, cherries, melons, oranges, lemons and strawberries.
There are five higher value symbols on the reels and these include the chip, the Gold Bar, the Lucky 7, the bell and the diamond. The latter is the highest value symbol in the game and offers you a chance to claim the base game jackpot if you can land five across the reels, of 750 coins.
It's great to see so many retro-styled symbols in a Mega Moolah game, but remember, this is a high variance slot and as such, even though it may look as if this game is a friendly old face, it can still be a tough game to land a decent win on.
The main Wild symbol in the slot is the Summertime logo symbol. This acts as a substitute for all of the other standard symbols on the reels and can help you land bigger wins. In addition, any win that the Wild symbol is part of will automatically see a 2x multiplier applied to that win.
Furthermore, if you land two or more Wilds on a single pay line then you win a pay out for the Wild symbol too including the base game jackpot prize of 10,000 coins for landing five of the Wilds across the reels.
Free Spins features
The main Free Spin feature of the slot game is activated when you land three or more of the beach-themed Scatter symbols across the reels. Not only will this trigger a cash prize of up to 500 coins, but you will also receive a total of 15 Free Spins in the bonus game and these spins all come with a 3x multiplier attached to any win as standard.
Another positive is that you can activate the Free Spins bonus game during Free Spins itself by landing three or more Scatter symbols on the reels once again.
Remember too that there is always a chance on every spin that you could land a shot at one of the four Mega Moolah progressive jackpot prizes displayed at the top of the reels. This randomly accessed award can be triggered on any qualifying spin and when it does trigger, you spin the Jackpot wheel to see which of the four prizes you win. You stand more chance of landing the lower value prizes of course, but if you can hit that single white space on the wheel, you will win the life-changing Mega Moolah progressive prize.
Best feature of the Mega Moolah Summertime slot
I really like the fact that the Mega Moolah Summertime slot has some lovely retro-styled features and of course, the fact that it is allied to the Mega Moolah jackpot prizes means that it is hugely attractive for those that like to chase big money prizes on slots too. This is a good value game, but it is a higher variance than usual and as such, wins can take a while to enjoy. It is a game best enjoyed over the longer term. The Free Spins bonus can lead to some sizeable standard game wins without even triggering the Mega Moolah bonus game.
Mega Moolah Summertime is a very enjoyable variation of slot compared to the other games available that offer a shot at the Mega Moolah jackpot. It will especially appeal to the more retro-friendly gamer and jackpot hunters in particular. It can be a tough game to land some decent wins on though, so always remember to play at the right level for your bankroll. If you do then you can while away many a happy hour playing this nicely designed progressive slot.
