It wasn't that long ago that we were discussing Rawiri Pou, the New Zealander who hit a Mega Moolah jackpot worth NZ$10,144,395. In fact, we only have to go back to June 17 when Pou's windfall happened. This makes it all the more amazing that Microgaming's Mega Moolah jackpot is currently worth over US$11.5 million.

If you're interested in playing for this huge jackpot, keep in mind that Mega Moolah slot is available at any online casino that offers Microgaming software. Keep reading to find out more on Mega Moolah and the story of Pou.

Mega Moolah Theme and Features

Mega Moolah is a 5-reel, 25-payline slot that's based on the African Savannah. This game feels like the 1994 Disney Movie The Lion King, and it features plenty of wild animals like a buffalo, elephant, giraffe, lion and zebra.

You can trigger 15 free spins by getting 3 or more Headhunter trophies anywhere on the reels. These free spins offer a 3x multiplier on all of your winnings. You can also look forward to wild symbols and scatter wins while playing.

How to Win the Mega Moolah Jackpot

What's great about Mega Moolah is that you only have to make the minimum $0.25 bet to quality for the top progressive jackpot (Major). This minimum bet also qualifies you for the Mini, Minor, Major, and Mega jackpots.

What's interesting about these four jackpots is that you don't have to line up any special combinations to win. Instead, the Mini, Minor, Major, and Mega jackpots are all awarded randomly, regardless of your spin size or payline combinations. This means that you could theoretically bet $0.25, lose, and still win a jackpot.

More on Rawiri Pou

Rawiri Pou isn't the biggest winner in Mega Moolah history - this distinction belongs to Jon Heywood, who won €17,879,645 ($20,062,600) in 2015. But Pou's story definitely stands out because he was just an average guy working at a New Zealand KFC before winning. Now he's a multi-millionaire who's looking forward to spending his fortune on his family.

"I still can't believe this is real," said Pou. "I've been in shock since I won and it is literally going to change my life. There is so much my family and I can do with this money and it couldn't have come at a better time ... I come from a very close-knit family, so I'd like to spoil my family."

We can't guarantee that you'll become rich through Mega Moolah like Pou. But for just $0.25 a spin, you can take a chance at winning any one of this game's four jackpots.
