Microgaming’s Mega Moolah pokie is one of several famous progressive jackpot pokies available online today. Also in this same series you can find Mega Moolah 5 Reel Drive, Mega Moolah Isis and Mega Moolah Summertime. The Mega Jackpot is the largest of four jackpots that you can play to win any day of the week on any of these games and at the time of writing this jackpot has already climbed back up to more than NZ$4,320,213.

The lowest cost per spin on the Mega Moolah pokie starts from just NZ$0.25 coins and you can play to win big prizes during normal play and during the Free Spins Bonus Round. The progressive jackpots can only ever be won from within a randomly triggered progressive jackpot bonus round and when this triggers you get to take one spin of the bonus wheel to win 1 of 4 guaranteed jackpots.

The lowest valued jackpot that generally starts from around NZ$10.00 is the Mini Jackpot. The Minor Jackpot usually starts from around NZ$100.00 and the Major Jackpot usually starts from around NZ$1,000.00.
