Pokies is the name that Australian gamblers give to slots. Online pokies are just the same as online slots, but “down under” they are called pokies. Mega Moolah is a progressive pokies game which means that it has a jackpot that grows every time someone plays this pokies game with real money. Because of its unique structure with the four-tier jackpots, Mega Moolah has become one of the most popular pokies game in the group of progressives.
The Mega Moolah Progressive Pokies Special Features
Mega Moolah has five reels and 25 paylines and you can place bets from one cent up to five cents per line per spin. In order to be eligible for the exciting progressive pokies jackpots, you need to be betting the maximum amount of coins. If you are betting at the low end, only one cent, you will not be laying out a lot of money and might be able to collect some really worthwhile rewards. The superior Microgaming graphics and sound effects are wonderful as you can see when you open the game with the short introductory film.
The Mega Moolah pokies game has an African theme with African animals as its symbols and images. The display shows a Lion, Antelope, Elephants, Zebras, Giraffes, Water Buffalo and a Monkey. You will also find high-value playing cards ranging from nines to Aces.
The Mega Moolah Wilds, Scatter, Free Spins, Jackpots and Bonuses
The Lion is the Wild symbol in the Mega Moolah pokies game. The Lion substitutes for every symbol except the Scatter, and it also acts as a multiplier because whenever it helps to create a winning combination it doubles the payout.
The Mega Moolah Scatter symbol is the Monkey. Three, four or five Monkeys scattered across the reels will trigger the Free Spins feature. You receive 15 free spins where all your winnings are tripled. Furthermore, the free spins can be retriggered if the Monkeys show up again on the spinning reels.
The Bonus game in the Mega Moolah pokies game is triggered randomly. You never know when it will show up, but when it does it is loads of fun. The Mega Moolah Bonus game is a wheel of fortune style game with an African theme. You are taken to a second screen where the pokies wheel has white, yellow, orange and red spaces. The colours designate which Mega Moolah jackpot you will win: Mini, Minor, Major or Mega progressive pokies jackpot. There is only one White space on the wheel and this is for the Mega jackpot which begins at $1 million. The three Yellow spaces are for the Major jackpot beginning with $10,000. There are six Orange spaces for the Minor jackpot which begins at $100, and ten Red spaces for the Mini jackpot which is $10.
If you are able to get into the Bonus game, this is the most exciting and thrilling part of the Mega Moolah pokies game where every player holds his breath hoping for the great big Mega jackpot.
