Mega Moolah Versus Marvel Movies

Published on: September 15, 2010 

Mega Moolah is a progressive jackpot slot games network from Microgaming. Marvel Movies is a similar network from the online gaming software provider Playtech. Both networks have similarities and differences that make the comparison interesting.

Mega Moolah is a much older network. Microgaming added four slot games to this network and has then apparently stopped. At least there have been no additions in a long time. The slot games that are on this network are thematically different. Apart from the first game called Mega Moolah, the others are older Microgaming slots that have been reworked into the network. These are Isis, Summertime and 5 Reel Drive. The Marvel Movies network is of recent origin and has branded super hero slot games based on Marvel Movies. Games are still being added to this network. The games include The Punisher, Hulk, X-Men, Blade, Iron Man and Fantastic Four.

The crux of the both these networks is the progressive jackpot. Both the jackpots offer four tiers. The Mega Moolah tiers are known as Mega, Major, Minor and Mini. The Marvel Movies tiers are known as Power, Extra Power, Super Power and Ultimate Power. But what is more interesting is the way the jackpots are triggered. In both networks a bonus game is randomly triggered that necessarily leads to one of the four jackpots being hit. But both networks have different mechanisms.

The Mega Moolah mechanism is based on the wheel of chance. The wheel has bands in four different colors representing the four tiers. The lowest jackpot tier obviously has the most number of bands and the highest jackpot tier has the least number of bands. The player starts the wheel and when it comes to rest the color of the band next to the marker decides which jackpot is won. The Marvel Movies network uses a scratch card type model. The squares on the grid conceal the logos of the different tiers.  The lowest jackpot tier obviously has the most number of logos and the highest jackpot tier has the least number of logos. Players unveil the squares one at a time and as soon as three logos of a particular tier are revealed the jackpot of that tier is hit.

The major difference in the Mega Moolah and the Marvel Movies jackpots is the amount of the jackpot. The highest level in each case is being compared as an example. The Mega jackpot of Mega Moolah resets at $1 million every time it is hit. Hence it makes a millionaire every time it is hit. On the other hand the Ultimate Power jackpot tier has a starting level of $100,000 only. In its illustrious history Mega Moolah has paid out over $3 million per hit and has been hit on an average every four months. The largest hit is over $6 million. Because Marvel Movies is of recent origin it is unable to display such historical data. So far Ultimate Power has had two hits of just over $700,000 each.

Mega Moolah can be played at all Microgaming online casinos like Platinum Play, Jackpot City, Spin Palace and All Slots. Marvel Movies can be played at all Playtech online casinos like Casino Tropez, Casino Del Rio and Omni Casino.
