We have selected the following slot game variants as whilst they do all share something similar which could be a progressive jackpot, bonus game feature round or base game feature, the listed online pokies do come with their own unique themes and playing structures.
Mega Moolah Pokie Game Variants
The several different Mega Moolah slot game variants all of which share a set of four progressive jackpot pools, and what makes all of these games playable from slot players point of view is that no set amount of cash needs to be wagered on any of them to have a chance of winning one of those four progressive jackpots.
A Mega Moolah bonus game feature round is attached to each of the following slots which can be awarded to any player, playing at any stake level, at the end of a paid for spin of the reels. When triggered a player is guaranteed to be awarded one of the progressive jackpots once they have spun a bonus wheel which dependent on where it stops the respective jackpot will be instantly paid out to that player.
Let us now give you an overview of the themes and unique bonus game features which all four of the following Mega Moolah slot game variants have on offer.
5 Reel Drive – The 5 Reel Drive slot is quite an interesting pokie game from the Mega Moolah series for this slot does come with a potentially high paying free spins bonus game feature on which any winning combinations formed are worth 5 times their normal payout values. There are wild symbols and scatters, as well as a huge base game jackpot worth some 10000 coins for spinning in to position 5 Wheel and Flag symbols on to any of your active paylines.
Isis – The Mega Moolah Isis slot is based on the original slot game called Isis, this Egyptian themed slot which has all four of the Mega Moolah jackpots attached to it is best known for being a high variance slot and as such when playing it you can expect some dry slot spins on which no winning combinations are formed, however a huge paying spin could appear at any time!
Mega Moolah – The very first Mega Moola slot which was launched by Microgaming is one on which a set of free spins can be triggered whenever three of the scatter symbols appear, these free spins can and quite often do re-trigger and that fact coupled with those four constantly rising jackpots have made this slot a very popular one with players!
Summertime – The Summertime Mega Moolah slot game variant offers players a fun, colourful game interface, with 9 win lines, wild symbols, scatter payments and free spins. As well as it also offering the Mega Moolah progressive feature, you’ll also find that during the free spins feature, a special reel set is in place, and as such, you’ll have plenty of winning chances. The base game non progressive jackpot is some 10000 coins and is won when 5 Wild symbols spin into position on an active payline.
Untamed Series of Pokies
Microgaming’s Untamed Series of Pokies consists currently of four different slot variants, these slots are all structured as All Ways slot games which means a total of 243 ways to win are activated whenever the spin button is clicked and the reels have been sent into play.
You will find a set of shared bonus features are offered on these slots which includes a Your Gamble option which is a player adjustable gamble type game on which players are in control of the winning odds offered when they choose to take the gamble option.
A Lucky Nudge feature can also kick in on any of the following pokies, and this will see any scatter symbol that is one position out of view of the slot screen occasionally being randomly nudged onto the screen when two other scatter symbols are already in view, and as such a bonus game awarding near miss of scatter symbols can magically be turned into a bonus game awarding set of scatter symbols!
Let us now highlight the more unique bonus features the following four Untamed Slot games offer you, should you find any of these slots appealing you can of course play them for free online at any of our featured Microgaming powered casinos!
Bengal Tiger – The Bengal Tiger slot is one of those slots that appeals to those that love wildlife. With beautiful Tiger reel symbols, including head on portraits, vistas and scenes of cubs playing, it’s easy to see why this is so popular. There’s a very generous jackpot available, as well as scatter pays and free spins with trailing wilds. There are also a few base game features unique to this game, including collect a wild feature.
Wolf Pack – The Wolf Pack slot is another of the popular slots in the Untamed Series, this slot although running on a similar engine as Bengal Tiger, it does have a few differences. The jackpot is the same, and there are Trailing Wilds, Collect a Wild and Lucky Nudge features, you’ll find that the free spins feature plays out a little differently. Firstly this slot offers 10 free spins, and the Wild symbols are Running Wilds, meaning they grow by one per spin.
Giant Panda – The Giant Panda slot is nearly identical to Wolf Pack slot game in every way, including the way it plays and pays, however, during the free spins round, triggered when you spin 3 or more Scattered Eye symbols into view, you’ll be awarded with 10 free spins with Brilliant Wilds, these wilds stick to the screen, and stay there for the remainder of the free spins to give you the ultimate chance of hitting the larger winning payouts!
Crowned Eagle – This Untamed Crowned Eagle slot is the latest game in the series, and this one features a very special Wild symbol which Microgaming have opted to call a Soaring Wild symbol, when the free spins have been activated this symbol flies around the screen and whatever symbol it lands on will become a wild multiplier symbol for that one free spin and boost winning payouts by up to x10 their normal payout amounts!
