Mega Moolah Question

Has anyone here ever won any of the jackpots that roll across the top of the screen at any of the MG casinos while playing the game Mega Moolah? If you have won did you win any of the bigger pots?

I have maybe 50 hours playing the past year and have never won anything

Just curious

:)Hi Vegas , I have hit the smaller one a bunch of times and the bigger one 2 or 3 times . I am pretty sure I posted screen shots a while back . The smaller ones were for maybe $10 to $20 and the bigger in the $100 range . It was just nice hitting a jackpot :)

I have played it a bunch of times, about 6-8 times in total with about 500 $1 spins each time. I have gotten the Jackpot once and hit the second lowest one for $166. I do like the game as your money lasts but I want to hit the Jackpot at least once more..

I've hit it several times. Hit $125.00 once with the second lowest jackpot but have hit the $10.00 one several times. Saturday night while playing 6.25 a spin I hit it about 20 times. Got a little annoying though as I figured I would never hit anything larger than $10.00

Maybe a bit off topic, but I always wondered how the big progressives work. I mean the top prize in Mega Moolah is the same in every currency right? So when someone hit it for 4.3 million some time ago, playing in South African Rand, MG just took 313,000 off the meter.

Let's say 5% of wagers go to fund the progressive, and the majority of play was in rands (14 rand = 1 pound) or $'s. And then the jackpot is hit by someone playing in pounds, wouldn't that cost MG millions?

I believe 95% of the bets are in dollars or pounds.

I presume that play in Rands would increase the jackpot by a proportional amount (about 1/14 of what play in GBP would).

Think of Mega Moolah as one huge continuiing tournament as that essentially is what it is. People from all over the world in all nationalities and currencies are playing that slot at the same time as you are. The jackpots (if you can believe the screen) are being won all the time, as you would expect the smaller jackpots to. However one thing it has proven to me having had the wheel out many times is that the chances of hitting the white slice ie the 5 million odd is deliberatly fixed or controlled or whatever. IF it was all down to random and pure chance, after all this time odds are high that someone somewhere would have landed on it but as far as im aware no one ever has at least not in pds or usd. Isnt that extremely unlikley given how long this game has been out now and how many people must be playing on it at all times?

I do agree!:thumbsup:

My "guess" is that they can set a progressive to not hit until it reaches a certain amount. The higher it gets, the more people will play it.. and thus more money comes in.

This is similar to what happened at Milionaires Club at Cryptologic. When the 9 line version came out. The progressive just was not hit for a long time, and went past $5 million. After the big hit, it now seems to go on a regular basis. It could seem that the same thing is happening with Mega Moolah, which makes me suspect that on first release, these games are designed to go for a record breaking internet jackpot (publicity reasons), after which they will be set back to "normal", with the top jackpot being won more often. if this proves the case with Mega Moolah, then the industry has some explaining to do, as coincidence only works so far as an explanation.

Mega Moolah HAS hit once, even if only in Rand, and the second highest one has hit a few times. The many times that "the jackpot was won by another player" seems to be down to the small one, often around the $10 to $20 mark. The next one rarely makes it as far as $200 before falling.

I have had the jackpot wheel a few times, and oddly enough, NEVER on a large or max bet. It has always been the Mini though, around 15 for me. I have also gone several thousand spins and not seen the wheel once. Unlike most progressives, it is not necessary to make the max bet to be in with a chance, and it has more in common with the RTG Random Jackpot slots, rather than the traditional MG progressive. I suspect the chances of getting the wheel each spin are in proportion to the bet size.
