How to playThere’s nothing particularly complicated about this slot so, if you’ve ever played a slot before, there should be nothing to stop you jumping right in and playing. Even so, we’ll cover a few steps on how to play Mega Moolah below. You’ll find more information on the value of symbols, which can make a huge difference to how much moolah you take home when you cash out, as well as how the bonus round works. Fortunately, however, all of this is pretty self-explanatory and is only ever a click away in the game’s paytable.You’ll find more information on the value of symbols, which can make a huge difference to how much moolah you take home when you cash out, as well as how the bonus round works.

Paylines & Coins
The Jackpot Wheel
Mega Moolah symbolsIt’s worth going into the game with a rough idea of which symbols you should be hoping grace your paylines most often; for example, a Zebra is worth 10x that of a 10, and an Elephant is worth almost double that again. You can check out all of this information in the paytable (which lists all of the Mega Moolah rules) at any time, but here’s a quick cheat sheet:You’ll see above that – alongside the 10, J, Q, K and A symbols that appear on so many slot machines – we have a host of wild animals appearing on the reels. A good rule of thumb is the bigger and tougher animals are worth more credits, which makes sense! You should also note that, when you’re wagering 25 coins, any “wins” below 25 coins actually represent a loss; only wins of 26 coins or more are profitable.
The LionThe Lion serves as the game’s Wild, meaning it can substitute for any other symbol to build winning lines. It also adds a 2x multiplier to any win that it’s a part of, so it’s definitely a symbol you’ll want to watch out for. You’ll also see above that successive Lion symbols award a prize of their own, with 5 triggering the biggest base prize that the game has to offer.
The Monkey ScatterThe Monkey Scatter is another symbol you’ll want to keep a close eye out for as, in addition to offering instant payments of 2-100x your bet win, three or more Monkeys trigger a bonus round of 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier. This is a really solid bonus offering and provides a great opportunity to rack up some big wins or recoup any losses.
Mega Moolah’s bonus round
In addition to the Jackpot Wheel offered by Mega Moolah, there’s also a more traditional round of 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier in the game that’s triggered by three or more Monkeys. This won’t launch the progressive wheel, which appears randomly, but it will help you win more coins so you can play for longer!
Tips & takeaways
Wager as much as you can afford toEven though the Jackpot Wheel is triggered randomly, the evidence suggests that playing with a larger bet on each spin improves the odds of it appearing. In other words, if you consider yourself a serious jackpot chaser, you’d want to split your bankroll into a smaller number of larger bets than spend hours placing tiny bets.
Play the game as often as you canObviously we advocate gambling in moderation, but clocking up some gaming time, even if you’re not a huge fan of the game’s theme, may be worth it to trigger the bonus wheel, particularly when the Mega Jackpot is building up – some folks will use a Mega Moolah jackpot tracker to keep tabs on this figure, but it’s always going to be a life-altering sum of money.
Make sure you grab those casino bonusesYou could win huge sums of money when you play. While most will be happy to win a little bit here and there, some are lucky and grab massive jackpots, worth tens of millions of shillings.
Don’t conflate the jackpot wheel with striking it richWe won’t deny that it’s always an exciting time when the jackpot wheel is triggered in Mega Moolah. You should keep in mind though that this doesn’t automatically mean you’re going to land the grand prize. It’s far more likely that you’ll be taking home a Mini or Minor jackpot, which is nothing to be sniffed at but pales in comparison to the staggering heights reached by the Mega Jackpot.
