Mega Moolah has an African safari theme with most of the popular animals as symbols on the reels. These include lion, elephant, buffalo, giraffe, antelope, zebra and monkey. The symbols are bright and bold and crafted somewhat like the animals in the Disney movie The Lion King. The lion, being the king of the jungle, is the wild symbol and it doubles payouts when substituting in winning combinations. The monkey, who acts as a sort of shaman in the animated introductory clip, is the scatter symbol. It triggers 15 free spins in which all payouts are doubled.
You should be playing Mega Moolah for the progressive jackpot. The bonus game leading to the progressive jackpot can be randomly triggered after any spin. The larger your bet is, the greater will be your chance of triggering the bonus round. The maximum bet in Mega Moolah is only AU$6.25 and it makes sense to wager with this amount. The bonus screen displays a wheel with bands of four different colours. When the wheel comes to rest, the colour of the band next to the pointer indicates which of the four jackpots you win. The largest jackpot is Mega Progressive, which always starts at AU$1 million and on an average pays about AU$3 million. This is followed by Major that resets at AU$10,000, Minor that resets at AU$100 and Mini at AU$10.
