Colossal Mega Moolah Jackpot
Microgaming’s most prestigious progressive jackpot is Mega Moolah. It is the largest jackpot in the world that starts at a sum of 1 Million, which is a guaranteed. Anything above that amount is accumulated from bets placed across the Microgaming casino network.
Known as the millionaire maker, this progressive jackpot slot has several games in its series, including:
- Mega Moolah
- Mega Moolah Isis
- Mega Moolah Summertime
- Mega Moolah 5 Reel Drive
When it comes to the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot, there are in fact four different jackpots. These are the mini, minor, major and mega jackpots with the mega jackpot being the biggest of all. The Mega Moolah jackpot wheel determines which of the four progressive jackpots is won.
There is no way to determine when the jackpot will pay out as it is governed by a random number generator. This is also a guarantee that every single player has an equal chance of winning the jackpot, as it is completely random.
Some other top Microgaming progressive jackpots are Major Millions, Tunzamunni, Treasure Nile and King Cashalot, but Mega Moolah is by far the most popular one around.
