Graphics and sound

Mega Moolah is an exciting game to play both visually and aurally, with plenty of bright colors and sounds of the African Savannah, as each winning combination will elicit the sounds of the animals involved with that particular winning combo.

This makes the game a whole lot of fun to play and is part of the big appeal besides the potential massive jackpots.

The game symbols are beautiful, fun animal caricatures reminiscent of the golden era of Hollywood movies when movies were all about the great adventure to Africa! The bright colours also make it a very easy game to follow and also entertaining just to watch the action unfold on every spin.
