Mega Moolah slots lays claim to the largest online jackpot ever at $20,062,600 in 2015. But the current Mega Moolah jackpot is fast approaching this amount.
The famed progressive prize is worth just over $14 million at the time of this writing. Given that more players jump aboard as jackpots climb, this prize could potentially reach the record within the next couple of weeks.
Largest Mega Moolah Jackpot since 2015
Britain’s Jon Heywood won the $20 million jackpot in October 2015, making him the biggest slots winner in history. The Mega Moolah top prize has failed to get anywhere near this point ever since.
The next-biggest winner was a player who won €8,012,153.35 in April 2017. While certainly a big prize, this isn’t even worth half of what Heywood earned in terms of euros (€17,879,645).
Considering that it has been nearly three years since Heywood’s record win, I was beginning to wonder if the era of massive jackpots was over. But the latest Mega Moolah payout proves that it’s not.
How do You Win the Mega Moolah Jackpot?
The good thing about playing this slot is that you don’t have to make any special bet. Instead, you qualify for the jackpot as long as you make the $0.25 minimum bet (one penny at 25 lines).
You win the jackpot by triggering the random bonus round. Once in the bonus, you spin a wheel in hopes of winning the Mini, Minor, Major, or Mega Jackpot.
The bonus wheel is weighted to create better odds of hitting the smaller progressive prizes. But you at least have a slim chance of winning the Mega Jackpot, which is worth over $14 million right now.
In summary, it’ll be interesting to see how far this jackpot climbs. It needs to gain another $6 million in order to create a new record holder.
