Give yourself the time to explore the African savanna with Mega Moolah and experience the reason slots were created in the first place!

The world’s biggest online jackpot game! Mega Moolah and its sister game Mega Moolah ISIS (both share the same progressive jackpot) hold the world record for how much someone has won on an online slot. You can read more about that plus how the game works further down.

Mega Moolah slot review

Microgaming’s Mega Moolah has been around since November 28, 2006, making it one of the oldest video slots. The theme is African savanna, but what the game is known for is of course all the jackpot records (scroll down to the jackpot section to read more about these). The game has five reels and three rows with a total of 25 paylines. The lowest possible bet is SEK 2.50, while the highest is 62.50 – very low. The maximum win is never set in stone because the progressive jackpot can grow to any size.

Wilds, scatters, free spins, respins and a multiplier. Apart from the jackpot bonus, that’s all the Mega Moolah online slot has to offer in terms of special features. The RTP is set at 88.12% and the game’s volatility is low.

Mega Moolah free spins

It’s the jackpot that makes this game, so there really isn’t much else to talk about. Oh well, the game is fond of multipliers too. Here is the information we scraped together:


It is the lion that acts wild in Mega Moolah. This symbol replaces all others except the cat … we mean scatters, and also multiplies your winnings by x2.

The free spins round

The free spins round

Spin three scatters (the purple monkeys) and you activate Mega Moolah free spins, more specifically 15 of them. The only thing that changes during the free spins is that you cannot get the jackpot bonus, all your winnings are multiplied by x3 and you can fix respins if you get three more scatters.

Mega Moolah jackpot

Now you! This is the world’s most famous jackpot game, so how does it all actually work? Since Mega Moolah is a few years old, everything is really very simple. The bonus can be activated at any time after a completed round, but the chance increases the more you bet. Once you get the chance, a wheel is spun with different fields on it (one for each jackpot). The red and orange aren’t worth much, the yellow field usually gives away five-figure wins – but it’s the white field you really want to stay on!

Mega Moolah actually holds the world record for jackpot wins in online slots. According to the Guinness Book of Records (which is of course available online nowadays), the world record holder is called Jon Heywood and comes from Great Britain. On October 6, 2015, he won an incredible €17,879,645, which in his own currency was equivalent to £13,209,300. And what will it be in kroner, you ask? Just over 185,000,000! Talk about Jon’s life changing forever that October day. And we can categorically deny that it wasn’t John who won…

The above is the official record, but the Mega Moolah jackpot has grown even more after Jon’s mega win. On September 28, 2018, some lucky person took home 18,910,668 euros! However, this record never became official because the winner did not want to come forward. But it is the highest amount that any online slot has ever paid out!

RTP and volatility

RTP and volatility

The Mega Moolah RTP is a shamefully low 88.12%, but in this case we’re lenient with it since it’s the world’s number one jackpot game we’re talking about. Since each spin contributes to the pots, the Return To Player is always lower in jackpot games – although the number is not usually this low. The lower the RTP a game has, the stingier it is. But as I said, with such a huge jackpot (the biggest starts over at SEK 1,000,000 as soon as it goes), it’s OK to have such a low RTP.

The volatility of the game is about as low. What this means in practice is that you will win often, but little.

Mega Moolah on mobile

Even though the game is so old, it runs without Adobe Flash, which is great for mobiles. Mega Moolah is best played horizontally, like most video slots. All the buttons are well placed, but why is it not possible to change the bet without going into a sub-menu? Probably because the game is so old!
