If you’re a jackpot hunter then you’ll be well aware that the Mega Moolah jackpot is currently not far off the £18 million mark.
Online casino players are all hoping that it drops on their spin and operators are hoping it’s at their site for the publicity and interest the record-breaking win will generate from this Microgaming title.
We thought that the jackpot would have been won by now; after all the biggest win on the slot was back in October 2015 and worth just over £13.2 million.
We’ve watched this current jackpot surpass all expectations, hitting £14m, then £15m, £16m, £17m and now fast-approaching £18 million since the last win in June 2018 when a player from New Zealand won NZ$8,332,554.01.
How The Mega Moolah Jackpot Is Created
The progressive jackpot for the Mega Moolah slot grows because part of your bet is used to create the prize pot of the four jackpots available on the game; the Mini, Minor, Major and of course, the one we all have our eye on, the Mega.
As is the case with the current prize pot on the Mega Moolah series, the larger it is, the more players are attracted to spin the reels and the quicker the prize pot increases.
Time Between Mega Moolah Wins
Like all slots, Mega Moolah uses a Random Number Generator (RNG). With five reels and 25 paylines, there are multiple different combinations that can land on the reels. However, the progressive is won on this game by a spin of a wheel rather than symbol combinations.
The Jackpot Bonus Wheel is activated randomly and only appears on a spin that does not create a win.
We could try and hazard a guess as to when the Mega Moolah jackpot will drop but the nature of an RNG is that it is completely random and you only have to look at past winners and the time scales between the wins to see that their really is no pattern.
Good luck if you’re spinning the reels. Who knows, we could be writing about you as the next record-breaking casino winner!
