The little-known Major Jackpot can offer lucrative wins in the Mega Moolah slot

When you play the Mega Moolah slot, the aim for every player is to be one of the lucky ones that lands a sizeable win by landing the massive Mega Jackpot prize.

Currently, this progressive jackpot stands at well over seven million at the time of writing and there's no doubt that when one lucky player does land this win, they will find their life changed instantly as a direct result of it.

However, what is often overlooked when considering the Mega Moolah slot is that alongside the Mega jackpot, there are three more progressive jackpots that you can win. The Mini and Minor jackpots are only worth small amounts of money each (with wins typically being measured in tens or hundreds of pounds for each jackpot) but one jackpot that is often overlooked which can result in a sizeable win for a player is the Major Jackpot.

What is the Mega Moolah Major Jackpot?

The Mega Moolah's Major jackpot is the third level of progressive jackpots on the Mega Moolah game. In terms of size, it sits just below the Mega Jackpot but above the Mini and Minor jackpots. However, while the Mini and Minor jackpots are as their name suggests, the Major jackpot can be considerably larger.

That is because the minimum seed amount for the Major Jackpot on Mega Moolah is 10,000.00 in British Pounds. Furthermore, this jackpot is not won as frequently as the Mini or Minor jackpots, so it has more time in which to grow to amounts considerably larger than that.

However, the Major jackpot is won considerably more frequently than the Mega jackpot and often for amounts of money that eclipse even the biggest progressive jackpot wins on many of the other Microgaming progressive games. As consolation prizes go for not winning the Mega jackpot, the Major jackpot is a pretty difficult act to beat.

Let's learn a little more about this often under-appreciated jackpot and explore a little more about how it tends to pay out players and how often this occurs.

How do I win the Major Jackpot on Mega Moolah?

You win the Major Jackpot on Mega Moolah in the same way as you win any of the progressive jackpots, by triggering (at random) the Jackpot Bonus Game. On this game you will see a wheel with different coloured sectors on. The single white sector is the Mega jackpot prize, but if you land in any of the three yellow coloured sectors, then you will win the Major jackpot prize.

As you will see when you trigger the Jackpot Bonus Game in Mega Moolah, there's far more chance of landing a Mini or Minor jackpot prize than a Major or Mega, but every 48 hours or so, one lucky player does see the wheel come to rest in one of those three yellow-greenish Major sectors.

Major Jackpot stats

Since the game began, the Major Jackpot has been paid out hundreds of times and a lot more than the Mega Jackpot on the same machine. The Major Jackpot is actually triggered just about every 48 hours, as can be seen in the table above. This represents data only from a single, yet largest, Microgaming group of casinos. There are of course many other casinos that are not part of this group and where players win Major Jackpot prizes.

The average size of win on the Major Jackpot in June was around 26,494, however the jackpot can grow to considerably more than that. As you can see the largest win in June was a sizeable amount worth 113,401.

What is notable also is that on some days, the Mega Moolah's Major Jackpot was not just triggered once, but several times. On June 10th for example, the jackpot was triggered four times in quick succession. While on June 15th it was triggered three times. Several other days, 6th, 14th, 17th, 18th and 25th June all saw the jackpot triggered more than once in a 24-hour period.

However, you can also clearly see that when the jackpot is not won, it can grow quickly. On June 18 for example, it was triggered twice but then was not triggered again until four days later on the 22nd June, by which time it had grown to a huge 113,401 prize for the lucky winner.

So the Mega Moolah slot may offer a life-changing amount of money to be won if you land the Mega Jackpot, but equally, there is a significant amount of money that can and is won regularly by landing the Major Jackpot too.
