Atlantean Treasures Mega Moolah Slot Review (Neon Valley Studios/Microgaming)

This is Microgaming’s 1st Mega Jackpot slot in a decade: Atlantean Treasures Mega Moolah.

This progressive slot is made by one of their exclusive game studios called Neon Valley. The game comes with just 10 lines that pay both ways and include Expanding Wilds which stick for up to three back-to-back winning spins. The best part is of course the Mega Moolah jackpot wheel bonus, which guarantees a win of the same Mega, Major, Minor or Mini Jackpot as the original Mega Moolah game. This means there’s always over €1,000,000 up for grabs in addition to the 500x max win/spin in the base game.

Atlantean Treasures Mega Moolah will be released on 25 February 2020. You’ll find it at top licensed Microgaming slot sites like Spin Casino.

Expanding Wilds + Re-spins

Just like Aurora Wilds (Neon Valley’s very first game), this mermaid-themed slot has 7 stackable symbols that pay up to 25x total bet (50x both ways) for 3-of-a-kind or better.

Expanding Wilds is what you actually want in the main game. These non-paying symbols can replace for all others and appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 only. Although there’s no Free Spins bonus in the Atlantean Treasures slot, there is a re-spin feature which locks Expanded Wilds for up to 3 promising re-spins.

Whenever you get an Expanded Wild, it’ll stick while the rest of the reels re-spin. Get another wild mermaid and it’ll lock into place too, leaving you with two wild reels and another free re-spin to boot. You can get up to 3 re-spins and 3 Expanded Wilds, which will guarantee a win.

The fact that all symbols can come stacked makes it that much easier to stumble upon a big win (15x or more), which happens every hundred spins on average. So far my record is 240x (while testing the early release demo version).

👍 Tip: Atlantean Treasures Mega Moolah has an RTP of 92.08% of which the progressive jackpot contribution is 5.30%. For contrast, the original Mega Moolah has an RTP of 88.12% of which 8.80% is the jackpot contribution.

Progressive Jackpot Wheel Bonus – Guarantees a Win

The progressive jackpot bonus triggers completely differently to the rest of the Mega Moolah slots. It’s linked to “progressive trigger overlay symbols” (Golden Pearls) which stick to some icons on reels 2, 3 and 4. They don’t say how many of these pearls you need to trigger the bonus, so the collection animation is just to build anticipation. However, when you play on max bet (200x), only one such bonus symbol is enough to trigger the jackpot feature!

Once in the Mega Moolah Jackpot Wheel Bonus, you’re guaranteed to win one of the following progressive jackpots:

  • Mega Jackpot starts at €1,000,000
  • Major starts at €10,000
  • Minor starts at €100
  • Mini starts at €10.

Progressive jackpots are paid out in your local currency. While the chances of winning any of them are scarce, never before has Microgaming jackpot slots allowed 200-credit bets, which allows to trigger the bonus feature every few spins.

 

Conclusion

Editor's rating:

Microgaming’s 5th Mega Jackpot Slot

Atlantean Treasures Mega Moolah is a fun slot if you’re into simple games like NetEnt’s Starburst, with an added jackpot potential. And if you ever felt that the old Mega Moolah bet limits were not big enough, then you can rest assured that the new €200 max bet will significantly increase your chances of winning the Mega Jackpot.

On the other hand, this medium volatility submarine-themed slot delivers low max base game wins of only 500x and the RTP of 92.08% is significantly lower than the original Mega Moolah or even the new Wheel of Wishes with even mightier WowPot!

That said, Microgaming’s 5th Mega Jackpot slot is the simplest one in the jackpot’s 14+ years history, though it’s not the last one in 2020! Give it a spin and see how you like it.

Good luck!
