The excitement at Microgaming is once again growing as the progressive jackpot of their popular Mega Moolah slots game has passed the $10 million mark once more. The last time the jackpot was won, the big payout made it into the Guinness Book of World Records and players are hoping that the next payout will do the same.
The Mega Moolah progressive jackpot was won five months ago in October 2015 by 26-year old former soldier, John Heywood who scooped the record £13,213,838.68 (just over $20 million) on a single spin while he was playing the game at Betway Casino. Now fans of the game are wondering if the jackpot could climb as high once again or if, after five months, it will be hit any day.
Mega Moolah, powered by Microgaming, is a 5 reel, 25 payline video slots game set on an African safari. Symbols in the game include a range of animals you would see on safari, such as a lion, an elephant, a giraffe, a buffalo, a monkey and a kudo. The friendly-looking animals, together with the bonus features will attract all players.
The game includes a scatter symbol and a wild multiplier symbol as well as a free spins bonus round that awards 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier. The progressive jackpot round is the main bonus feature and is triggered randomly. There are four progressive jackpots of varying sizes and once you enter the jackpot bonus round, you are guaranteed to win one of the jackpots.
The progressive jackpot that is currently above the $10 million mark is the largest of the four known as the mega jackpot. Players can try their luck at being the next big jackpot winner at any Microgaming-powered online or mobile casinos.
