Learn how to play Microgaming’s new Mega Moolah Slot Atlantean Treasures, the latest carrier of the famous Million Maker jackpot.
If you haven’t already heard the new, Microgaming is making waves yet again. On February 25, 2020, the world-famous digital gambling games creator launched the all new Atlantean Treasure Mega Moolah Slot. This isn’t just another game coming to market. This is Microgaming revisiting its most famous creation to give players what they want most; more ways to win the colossal Mega Moolah jackpot.
They don’t call it the ‘Millionaire Maker’ for nothing. The Mega Moolah is the world’s first, and currently only, online progressive slots jackpot to guarantee a 7-figure payout. Seeding at one million Euros per strike, this jackpot has been paying an average of more than $5 million to each of its lucky winners for nearly 15 years. And now, players have another way to spin to their to the wheel of Mega Moolah fortune.
New Mega Moolah Slot Atlantean Treasures
If the name didn’t give it away already, Atlantean Treasures Mega Moolah is an aquatic themed slot machine. It is a traditional 5-reel game with 3 columns and just 10 pay lines; not too complex and very easy to keep up with. All 10 lines pay left to right, and right to left, doubling the payout potential for players.
Atlantean Treasures is brimming with colorful creatures, from star fish and swaying anemone, to myriad tropical fish and fancy blue seahorses. The highest paying symbols are the porthole BAR and blue 7, with a shimmering pink-haired mermaid as the expanding wild.
When one or more wilds appear in a spin – capable of landing on reels 2, 3 and 4 only – it triggers a free re-spin. All wilds expand to cover their entire reel then lock into place as the remaining reels are spun again. If an additional wild lands on that spin, it too will expand and trigger another re-spin. A maximum of 3 re-spins are possible.
How to win the Mega Moolah Jackpot
In order to unleash the ultimate millionaire’s prize, you must trigger the Jackpot Bonus Wheel game. It happens at random, but players do have some control over the probability of triggering it. Placing higher bets, and/or playing longer sessions, will increase the chance. Here’s how…
As you play the Atlantean Treasures Slot, you’ll notice that standard symbols will sometimes appear with a golden sphere on them. This is the progressive trigger symbol. Each gold sphere is collected. The more you collect, the greater the probability of randomly triggering the bonus becomes. The higher your bet size, the more golden sphere you can expect to see, thus the faster you’ll collect them.
When that bonus wheel triggers, you are guaranteed to win one of the four tiered jackpot prizes; the Mini, Minor, Major or Mega. The wheel contains 20 slotted positions of four different colors. Half of them are green, awarding the Mini Jackpot. Six are blue, worth the Minor Jackpot. Three are red, worthy of the Major, and the last – the golden position – will award the Mega Moolah.
Atlantean Treasures Slot Better than the Original?
I don’t know if I’d call one better than the other. The older games do have their perks for some. There’s the original African Safari themed Mega Moolah Slot, featuring the proud lion, and the Mega Moolah Isis, featuring the Queen of Egypt herself, Cleopatra. Both are 5×3 reel games with 25 pay lines, but two very different themes.
No matter which game you choose, the progressive jackpot’s winning conditions are the same. What is different, mind you – the one thing that could appeal more to players in the know, so to speak – is the return to player, or RTP, of each game. The original Mega Moolah comes in at 88.12%. Mega Moolah Isis is actually a bit lower at 88.00%. The new Mega Moolah Slot, Atlantean Treasures, offers the highest RTP of 92.08%, not to mention some beautifully rendered graphics.
Not only was this newer version made more than a decade later than its predecessors, it was built by a more modern team of designers, as well. Atlantean Treasures is the fabrication of Neon Valley Studios, a new exclusive content partner of Microgaming. This is the independent lab’s second slot machine release, following Aurora Wildsin mid-2019.
