Mega Moolah jackpot balloons to over AUD $5 million
The Mega jackpot in Microgaming’s most popular online progressive jackpot slot game, Mega Moolah, has tipped the $5,000,000 mark, hovering around $5,225,000 to be more precise. The Major jackpot also continues to rise, about to tick over the $50,000 mark, if it hasn’t already gone off since the time of publication of this article.
The largest ever win on the Mega Moolah online pokie is $9.49 million (USD), which converts to $12,048,804 AUD, so while it hasn’t reached those heights just yet, five million dollars is nothing to whinge about. Since 2008, the Mega Moolah jackpot has been won 18 times, with winners coming from at least eight different countries, including Finland, Britain, Norway, Greece, Poland, New Zealand, Germany and Sweden.

Remember, the higher you bet per spin, the greater your chances of triggering the random bonus round where you can win one of the four jackpots (Mini, Minor, Major and Mega). The maximum wager per spin is only $6.25 – a limit most online punters can afford – but even betting $3 per spin gives you a far greater chance to trigger the jackpot wheel round, than a lowly $0.01 or $0.05 per spin.
Having said that, the smallest bet which landed the Mega jackpot was a 30 pence wager (equivalent to $0.60 AUD), and that win was collected by John Orchard in December 2012 – ironically, the largest ever jackpot of $9.49 million US Dollars, so you never know.
Mega Moolah facts
The bonus jackpot wheel, which replicates a wheel-of-fortune type game, has 20 slots. There is one slot for the Mega jackpot, three slots for the Major jackpot, six slots for the Minor jackpot and 10 slots for the Mini jackpot. If any of the jackpots are won, the progressive counter for that jackpot resets to its starting amount, which are as follows:
- Mini – $10
- Minor – $100
- Mini – $10,000
- Mini – $1,00,000
When the jackpot round is randomly activated, all you need to do is spin the wheel and hope it lands on that sole white slot reserved for the Mega progressive jackpot.
The Mega jackpot has been triggered the most times in the month of May (four) and three times in the month of December. It has once been won twice in the same month (May, 2013), where it was hit twice in the span of five short days. The longest period between Mega jackpot wins was a period of 384 days.
