Mega Moolah The Best Progressive Online Slot

The recent hit of over 8 million has once again brought the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot network from Microgaming in the news. This is the most popular progressive jackpot by far at Canadian online casinos. This article is a primer for new players who are not familiar with Mega Moolah.

Mega Moolah has a four tier progressive jackpot. These jackpots run independent of each other with their own hit and reset cycles. The biggest tier is Mega Progressive. It resets at CA$1 million and often pays in many millions. The other tiers are Major Progressive, Minor Progressive and Mini Progressive. For all practical purposes, Mega Progressive is the only tier that is attractive. A bonus round can be randomly triggered after any spin. The game moves to a second screen, where a wheel is displayed. The wheel has bands of four different colours, each colour representing one tier of the progressive jackpot. The wheel is spun and comes to rest with the pointer at one of the bands. The player wins the progressive jackpot corresponding to that colour. There is only one white band for the Mega Progressive out of 20 bands so it hits least often.

The other interesting aspect about Mega Moolah is that there are now five video slots connected to this network. The first game was titled Mega Moolah. This African safari video slot was launched in November 2006 and remains the most popular of the lot. Then in 2009 three video slots were added to the network. They were Five Reel Drive, Summertime and Isis. The last game to be added to Mega Moolah is the branded video slot The Dark Knight based on the Batman movie from Warner Bros.

Mega Moolah has some very impressive statistics. The progressive jackpot has been hit 33 times since inception. The smallest hit is at just above its reset level of 1 million. The biggest hit has been the equivalent of over 17 million euros. The average hit is about 5.5 million. Mega Moolah is played at Microgaming online casinos all over the world and is paid in the currency that the winner has wagered in. Canada has not been left out. A player from this country has recorded a CA$7.5 million hit. Some of the online casinos where you can play this progressive jackpot are Maple Casino, Platinum Play, Spin Palace and All Slots.
