Atlantean Treasures Jackpot Review
In 2006, players were taken on an African safari when the first Mega Moolah progressive slot was released. Since then, various versions of this game has been created, with Atlantean Treasures: Mega Moolah, by Neon Valley Studios™, in partnership with Microgaming, released in February 2020. This progressive slot is available to play at all leading Microgaming casinos, including JackpotCity, where other games in the series are also available to enjoy on both desktop and mobile devices.
With an underwater theme and all symbols appearing in bubbles, Atlantean Treasures offers in-game bonus features that other Mega Moolah games don’t necessarily have. But one thing that remained the same, is the 4 jackpots that could be up for grabs, with the Mega starting at 1 million.
We’ll dive into all these features and jackpots further down, and also explain how a progressive jackpot works – but first, let’s get started and find out what the game looks like and how to play.
All Game Settings
Atlantean Treasures: Mega Moolah is a visually striking game with an underwater theme. On the left-hand side, players will see a giant clam that can be filled with gold coins for a better chance at triggering one of the four progressive jackpots, which are located just above the clam. This video slot has 5 reels and 10 fixed bi-directional paylines, which means that payouts occur both from left to right, and right to left.
Upon launching the game for the first time, players will have to select their bet size, which can be adjusted with the click/tap of a button, and they will also be able to view the game features, symbols and payout table via the information menu.
As the game is playable on both PC and mobile, the layout and settings location may differ slightly, depending on the device.
Popular Game Symbols
Perfectly suited to the theme of the game, the symbols that players will find in Atlantean Treasures: Mega Moolah, include a starfish, anemone, a sea horse and colourful fish. For those looking for a more classic-style slot, the game includes symbols of the bar and seven.
The Scatter is a gold pearl, and while it’s not included in the paytable, these symbols can be attached to others and be added to the open clam on the left – thereby increasing the chance of triggering the jackpot wheel. The mermaid is the Wild and can substitute for other symbols to complete possible winning combinations.
Expanding Wilds and Respins
The Wild mermaid symbol will appear on reels 2, 3 and 4, and besides substituting, it will also expand to fill the entire reel. Upon doing so, it will award a respin, whereby the reel will be locked in place while the rest of the reels spin again, at no extra cost to the player.
How does a progressive jackpot work? Each jackpot starts at a predetermined amount, and a portion of every real money bet that is placed on the game, is added to the pot – the jackpot will therefore keep growing until it’s been won, after which it will be reset to the original amount and start all over again.
There are four progressive jackpots that could be won when playing Atlantean Treasures: Mega Moolah. Every time a Scatter symbol lands, it will get added to the giant clam and increase the chance of activating the jackpot wheel. Should this happen, players will get the chance to spin the wheel and win the jackpot on the corresponding colour it lands.
The Mini jackpot starts at 10 credits and is green, the Minor jackpot starts at 100 credits and is blue, while the Major jackpot is red and starts at 10 000 credits. The Mega jackpot will always reset and starts at 1 million and there is one gold wedge on the wheel reserved for this jackpot.
Slot Game Bet Sizes
Atlantean Treasures: Mega Moolah is a 5-reel progressive slot with bi-directional paylines. The minimum and maximum bets range between 0.10 and 200 credits per spin, respectively. At JackpotCity Casino, players can play in the currency of their choice, however, the progressive jackpots pay out in Euro and will then be converted.
Mega Moolah Winners
Shortly after its release February 2020, the first Mega jackpot was won on Atlantean Treasures: Mega Moolah – this was in May 2020 with a jackpot of over NZ$13.6 million (over €7.7 million).
