Mega Moolah Isis Slot
Microgaming has established a special place in the hearts of online slot players for the potency of its progressive jackpot games, with one title in particular very highly prized both literally and figuratively. The original Mega Moolah slot quickly attracted attention for its millionaire-making potential, and at the time of this review is the record holder of the single largest payout (a jackpot of £13,209,300 that dropped in October 2015).
Mega Moolah’s safari theme pleased many players, but if you fancy a crack at winning this mighty progressive in an Ancient Egyptian setting then join us as we journey to the fertile gaming delta of Mega Moolah Isis.
The basegame of Mega Moolah Isis is a lush twenty-five payline affair, its five reels adorned with classical Egyptian imagery to support more traditional A, K, Q, J, 10, 9 symbols. The goddess Isis is the dominant symbol you’ll wish to summon into play, for she is not only the highest paying icon (paying a rich 10,000x your linebet should five instances land on an active payline) but also this slot’s Wild symbol with the power to substitute for all but the Scatter symbol and double any wins she magically transforms.
The Hawk is the aforementioned Scatter symbol, and three or more in view will trigger both a tasty payout and a tranche of up to thirty free spins. This bird of prey’s bonus of free spins can prove to be very rich pickings indeed, for it can be retriggered without limit and all winnings accumulated during this bonus are multiplied by six times!
Before finally addressing the progressive lure of Mega Moolah Isis, one final feature of its basegame is a Gamble option that becomes live on all wins. Should you wish to take up the challenge, the stake is your latest win and your choices are to predict the colour or suit of the next card drawn from a standard deck of playing cards. A correct colour prediction will double your win, a correct suit prediction will quadruple it.
The jeopardy is to lose the lot if your gamble is wrong! You may collect at any time, or repeat the gamble up to the bet limit if you feel luck is on your side. Gamble features are not for everyone, but it’s nice to have the option to play it here if the fancy take you.
At last we turn to the mythical Mega Moolah progressive jackpot on which Isis’ players’ dreams hang. Like the original Mega Moolah slot that also feeds this jackpot, this progressive is randomly triggered so you may find yourself before its legendary wheel of fortune whatever your betting level and last spin result. Should luck land you in the Mega Moolah progressive game, a single spin of its wheel will determine if you walk away with its Mini, Minor, Major or mighty Mega jackpot. May luck go with you and the guaranteed million plus Mega jackpot be your destiny!
Mega Moolah Isis isn’t a radical departure from the original Mega Moolah slot, and more importantly they both offer the same chance to win the shared progressive prizes. Both are very entertaining slots, so it comes down to what theme suits your mood. An African safari or Egyptian adventure? Hmmm . . . decisions, decisions.
