There are hundreds, perhaps thousands of slot machines out there, spread out across thousands of online gambling destinations. But none of them is as famous as Mega Moolah, a progressive jackpot video slot you can find at the Red Flush Casino. Until last October, the slot machine was just another slot machine, like many others.But then the unexpected happened: it paid out a jackpot that has later been confirmed to be a world record. Which made it perhaps the best known, most played progressive slot at the Red Flush Casino, as well as a host of other casinos. To find out more about it, visit

About the game

Mega Moolah is a five reel, three-row video slot machine with 25 win lines. Players can place bets of up to five coins – of different denominations – on each of its win lines, which makes its maximum bet worth 125 coins. The game’s reels are filled with African cartoon animals, smiling reassuringly on the player.

If you’re not into African animals, you can choose several other games with the same mechanic and a different theme: Mega Moolah Isis (inspired by Egypt), Mega Moolah Summertime, Mega Moolah 5 Reel Drive and The Dark Knight, based on Christopher Nolan’s movie with the same title.

The jackpot

Mega Moolah has not one, but four progressive jackpots: Mini, Minor, Major, and Mega. As you might expect, the Mega jackpot is the largest of them all, paying out millions in US dollars, euros or UK pounds, whichever currency you might be playing with. If it’s won, the Mega jackpot resets to its base value, $/€/£ 1 million, from where it can grow to fabulous heights.

The largest ever amount won on Mega Moolah was £13.2 million last October. But other major wins have been recorded over the years. This April a lucky player won €6.9 million on it, and last April it paid out over $7.5 million to a Canadian player.

How to win the jackpot

As all video slot machines, Mega Moolah also comes with a Wild and a Scatter symbol. You might expect for the Scatter to trigger the jackpot game, but it does not – the jackpot feature is randomly triggered. When it happens, the player is taken to a Wheel of Fortune type side game, where – isn’t it obvious – a wheel must be turned. It has 20 objects – and one of them is the game’s Mega jackpot. If the wheel stops there, the player becomes an instant millionaire.

Other jackpots at the Red Flush Casino

Aside from the five Mega Jackpot games I mentioned above, the Red Flush Casino has several other progressive slots. Among them, Major Millions, known for its frequent jackpot payouts, King Cashalot, a slot machine inspired by the legend of the Round Table, Treasure Nile, Cash Splash, Fruit Fiesta, and various other game types with progressive jackpots.
