Recap of other 2021 Microgaming wins

On April 27, 2021, the legendary Mega Moolah set a brand-new payout record after a Belgian player scooped a massive €19.43 million at Napoleon Sports & Casino. The eight-figure prize marked the biggest ever Mega Moolah jackpot win. Furthermore, this win means that Mega Moolah has now beaten the record for the largest online slot payout for the second time.

Interestingly, this win comes even before the dust settles down on Microgaming’s WowPot win by a UK player on April 14, 2021r. The jackpot was won at 32Red casino with a mere 80p bet. The prize? An incredible €17,529,047.11. Yes, this is the largest WowPot win ever.

Immediately after the win, another Belgian player from Napoleon Sports & Casino struck the €2 million WowPot on April 19, 2021. It’s interesting to note that Microgaming’s WowPot resets to the initial €2 million starting seed after being struck. Overall, it has been a few busy months for Microgaming and lucky ones for the respective players.

Mega Moolah slot review

Up to this point, you must be already researching about the iconic Mega Moolah jackpot, right? Well, here’re a few things to know. First, Mega Moolah is a 5x3 online slot with 25 fixed paylines. Second, you can form a winning combo in this game by landing three or more similar symbols on the payline starting from left to right.

On the reels, you’ll notice the colorful A-10 symbols and premium wild animals. The animal symbols include the buffalo, elephant, giraffe, kudu, and zebra. The elephant is the highest-paying icon, giving players 0.24x, 2x, 10x, 30x the initial stake after landing 2, 3, 4, or 5 of a kind.

Meanwhile, the lion symbol represents the wild, which pays 0.6x. 5x, 60x, or 600x the initial stake after hitting 2, 3, 4, or 5. As expected, the wild substitutes any standard symbol on the payline. Even better, getting a wild alongside a standard-symbol winning combo gives your payout a 2x multiplier boost.

But the main selling point of Mega Moolah is the available jackpots. In the Jackpot Bonus Game, you can win the Mega, Major, Minor, or Mini prize. You will get £1 million for the Mega jackpot, whereas the Mega jackpot gives you £10,000. The Minor and Mini pots give £100 and £10, respectively.

Lastly, this jackpot game is playable with a mere 25p and a maximum of £6.25 per spin. It’s a low variance game with a 46.36% hit frequency and a low RTP of 93.42%. So, are you ready to claim the reward? You should be!
