When it comes to the amount of their jackpots, Microgaming’s Mega Moolah series of online slots consistently sets and shatters records. On April 27th, Absolootly Mad: Mega Moolah paid out a staggering €19,430,723.60. This was a new record.
The jackpot video slots game was produced for Microgaming by Triple Edge Studios, and the lucky Belgian player reportedly earned the enormous payment while playing at Napoleon Sports & Casino. One of the Mega Moolah games set the previous record for an online casino jackpot win.
Not April’s Only Major Victory
The April jackpot winner on Microgaming’s Absolootly Mad: Mega Moolah was certainly the largest winner of the month, but it was far from the only one. Another lucky player took home WowPot’s big jackpot of €17.5 million in the middle of the month.
Another video slots player won the jackpot a few days after the initial winner claimed the WowPot prize and the pot was reset to its seed value, at a more manageable €2,025,000.
A Deeper Dive Into Insanity
Absolootly Mad: Mega Moolah, Microgaming’s latest multi-millionaire maker, is a long cry from the original African safari-themed online slot. The charming tale of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll served as inspiration for this relatively recent title. However, the Mad Hatter takes center stage in the game rather than Alice.
Instead of the standard paylines, this video slot features 243 different ways to win across its 5 reels. It has a lot of great extras, too. The Mad Hatter, his sidekick the March Hare, and the secretive Cheshire Cat are just a few of the emblems that fit the concept. There are other symbols of butterflies, teacups, pocket watches, and playing cards.
Rolling Reels is one of the extras that comes standard with the game. Each time you win, the winning symbol combination vanishes and is replaced by a new one. The Multiplier rises each time this occurs, which can happen again.
In addition to the jackpot bonus game and the free spins feature with rolling reels, this online slot also contains wild and scatter symbols. Players spin a wheel in the bonus round to win one of four jackpots. There are four prizes in total, with the Mega jackpot being the greatest of the bunch.
