Online Gaming's Two Favourite SlotsTuesday, Aug 22, 2017 08:34
If you’re a fan of online slots or have read anything about them then you’ll have heard of Starburst, one of online gaming’s most popular slots. The intergalactic-themed slot consists of 5 reels and 10 paylines with players wagering between 10p and £100 a spin. Starburst is famous for its stunning graphics, with sparkling jewels and glittering 7’s and also boasts a fantastic space age soundtrack.
Starburst’s popularity is largely due to its excellent and innovative gameplay. The game’s Wild Symbol is the Starburst which when landed on any of the 3 middle reels it will expand over the entire reel and remain in place for up to 3 re-spins. The Wilds only expand on reels 2, 3 and 4 to cover the entire reel when landed. The reels the Starburst symbol appears on are locked in place while the other reels spin. If another Starburst symbol appears during a re-spin it also locks in place with previous Wild Symbols and awards the player another re-spin. This continues until the player does not spin a wild, allowing them to accumulate some big winnings. Starburst’s vibrant graphics, novel gameplay ideas and fast paced action have made it a firm favourite with slots fans everywhere.
If you’re looking to win big on an online slot then Mega Moolah is the slot for you. This famous progressive jackpot by Microgaming currently holds the record for the largest-ever jackpot payout by an online slot at more than £13.2 million! The slot has a safari theme with symbols that include wild African animals such as lions, tigers, elephants, antelopes as well as classic card symbols such ‘J’, ‘K’, ‘Q’, ‘9’ and ‘10’. The reels are also set against a backdrop of a wild African plain.
Mega Moolah was Microgaming’s first progressive jackpot slot and remains one of its most popular slots. The slots Scatter Symbol is the monkey which gives players the opportunity to win free spins. Players can win 15 free spins by landing 3 monkeys on any of the slots 25 active paylines. Each time a winning combination is spun during the free spins their value triples to boost your winnings. If you’re lucky enough to spin another 3 monkeys during the free spins the bonus will it reset and you’ll start again with another 15 spins.
The Wild Symbol is the lion icon which can fill in for any of the other symbols on the reels to help form a winning combination. The symbol also acts as a multiplier, if a lion forms part of a winning combination the winnings from that combination are doubled. Players can win some big money by landing wilds in Mega Moolah. If you spin two lions across an active payline you’ll pocket 15 coins, 125 coins for 3 lions and 1500 coins for 4 lions. If you’re lucky enough to land 5 lions in a winning payline you’ll win a massive 15,000 coins.
The progressive jackpot feature of the game takes on a different form to the base game slot as all of the action takes place on a wheel. On the wheel there are 4 different sections corresponding to the slots four different jackpots; Mini, Minor, Major and Mega. The wheel is spun and when it comes to a stop the jackpot the selector is pointing to is won by the player. Most of the time players will hit the Mini or Minor jackpots but occasionally lucky players hit the big-time with the Major and Mega ones triggering a guaranteed £1 million plus payout. The jackpot game is randomly triggered so you never know when you could be spinning the wheel for a massive payout!
