But there isn’t just a single Mega Moolah Canada game. After the success of the first release, Microgaming quickly added a number of other, similar titles. Each title works in mostly the same way, but for a few tweaks to the gameplay.
All in all, however, the concept remains the same. Each game in a series shares a constantly growing prize pool. That prize pool can be won by any player, at any time, as long as they’re spinning the reels.
At present, Microgaming has the Mega Moolah range of jackpot slots, and the WowPot range of jackpot slots. There are currently 5 games attached to the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot, and 3 attached to the WowPot progressive jackpot. The various games under each umbrella are set apart by how they play, with a host of different special features, bonuses, and other interesting twists.
Given that Mega Moolah has been around longer, it is still the most popular around the world, and hence offers a much broader selection of brands. This, in turn, means that the pool grows significantly faster. As such, WowPot also tends to have comparatively lower pool amounts, though is still seeded at an impressive €2 million.
As far as the Mega Moolah Canada community is concerned, there are a few games that are getting most of the attention.
The original safari themed 25 payline title, released in 2006, may be getting along in age, but it seems that Canadians care less about graphics, and more about bagging millions in payouts. There are no secrets strategies to winning, it’s simply a matter of triggering the random Jackpot Wheel.
Mega Moolah: Atlantean Treasures was released more recently in 2020, and features a Pays Both Ways system.
Mega Moolah: Absolootly Mad is known mostly for its excellent Alice In Wonderland inspired theme. It also features 243 Ways to Win, plus an impressive range of bonus features.
Mega Moolah: Fortunium Gold is another excellent choice, with 5 reels, 4 rows, and impressively elaborate graphics.
