What other progressives are worth a spin alongside Mega Moolah?

There is no doubt that if you enjoy progressive jackpot slots, then the Microgaming behemoth Mega Moolah is likely to be at the top of your play list.

The simple fact that there will be a million-plus available to be won, guaranteed, on any spin, at any time by any player is part of the reason why this slot has become more than a game and more of an institution among progressive slots fans.

However, one of the best things about being a slot gamer is that you never have to play the same game for a long time if you do not want to as there are always a massive choice of games to play and that is especially the case if you are a fan of Microgaming products, with over 550 different games to select from produced by the company over the years.

But if you particularly like your progressive slot games and you fancy a change of scenery from the Mega Moolah slot, but still want to play a top class Microgaming progressive, what should you take a look at?

In this article, we will give you some of the best Mega Moolah alternatives available to you from Microgaming, together with information on the cost per spin and the typical size of the jackpot prizes that you will be playing for. In all the examples of games below, the minimum bet size shown is the minimum bet you would need to make in order to qualify for a chance to win the progressive jackpot prize fund.

All jackpot prizes were correct as of Tuesday November 27th 2018. The prizes are available in multiple currencies and depend entirely on which currency you choose play in.

Major Millions Progressive

  • Versions - 3 and 5 Reel Versions
  • Minimum Bet - 3.00 (on both versions)
  • Typical Jackpot Prize - from 250,000 to 750,000
  • Current Jackpot Prize - 1,089,134

If you are looking for a Microgaming progressive that still boasts a sizeable progressive jackpot, and which can grow to over 1,000,000 at times, then the Major Millions slot should definitely be your first port of call.

There are two versions of the game you can play, a 3-reel and a 5-reel version of the game but your chances of triggering the progressive jackpot on each game is still exactly the same. To stand a chance of landing the big prize, you need to place the maximum bet in the game, which is 3.00 per spin.

On both versions of the game, you need to land the Major Millions Wild symbol right across on the final pay line on each slot (the 15th pay line in the 5-reel version and the third pay line in the 3-reel game). If you do, then that massive progressive jackpot prize will be yours.

The military themed slot also has a number of other prizes to be won in standard play, with several thousand coins available to be won up to the maximum non-progressive jackpot prize of 8,000 coins.

In August 2018, the Major Millions slot paid out two million-plus winners (on the 13th and 22nd of the month) and the jackpot has already increased to over a million right now. So if you fancy a spin, now may be the perfect time to give Major Millions a try.

King Cashalot Progressive

  • Versions - 5 Reel Game
  • Minimum Bet - 2.25 per spin
  • Typical Jackpot Prize - from 100,000 to 400,000
  • Current Jackpot Prize - 588,275

King Cashalot is a somewhat jovial soul and he is the focus of this 5-reel, 9 pay line slot from Microgaming which boasts a progressive jackpot of at least 100,000 and which can often grow to well in excess of that, sometimes even crashing through the 1,000,000 barrier.

You do need to wager the full amount across the 9-pay lines, which is 2.25 per spin in order to stand a chance of landing the progressive jackpot prize on the King Cashalot slot, but for that you get a very enjoyable game that boasts not only a big progressive prize, but a number of sizeable wins in the standard game too.

The size of the jackpot in the standard game is 15,000 coins, which isn't huge compared to the progressive jackpot size, but still represents a big return on your investment. The symbols are all characters from King Cashalot's court, or items taken from court, and include the princess, a Knight in Shining Armour and the Queen.

The game also has a Treasure Bonus game, which is activated by landing three of the Dragon symbols across the middle three reels of the game. In this game, you select from a number of different treasure chests to unveil cash prizes, you can elect to keep any cash prize you win, or discard it for another pick until you either end the game by keeping your pick, or run out of chests to pick from, in which case the last chest you pick is your prize.

This is a fun, breezy and enjoyable progressive which has some nice touches and a decent bonus game to play too and as such, it is well worth taking a closer look at.

Tunzamunni Progressive Slot

  • Versions - 3 Reel Game
  • Minimum Bet - 0.25 per spin
  • Typical Jackpot Prize - from 5,000 to 50,000
  • Current Jackpot Prize - 78,220

If there's one thing better than winning "loads-a-money" then that is going to be winning the Tunzamunni slot, which is exactly what you could do in the final of our three other Microgaming progressive jackpot slots to try out.

This is a perfect slot for the lower stakes gamer who is more comfortable wagering just 0.25 per spin to try and land a jackpot prize that is usually between 5,000 and 50,000 in size, but which can grow well beyond of that amount from time to time (as it has at the present moment in time).

This is a simple 3-reel slot with just a single pay line in play. The slot will certainly appeal to fans of retro games and it features just a couple of symbols on the reels, bar symbols and sevens, which makes it feel all the more retro.

As with many older style slots, there are empty spaces on the reels and these can be landed on spins and of course, do not pay any wins, so it is worth remembering that you can land these on spins, so you perhaps won't get the lower level of variance you may expect from a slot with relatively few different symbols on the reels.

Other than that, Tunzamunni is a fast, fun and enjoyable retro slot which boasts a very attractive progressive prize and the chance to win up to 2,500 times your stake in the standard game too.
