This is not the first slot with an Atlantean-theme but it is the only Atlantean-themed slot in the Mega Moolah series by Microgaming in association with Neon Valley Studios. Mega Moolah is the award-winning jackpot network that has now paid out more than a billion dollars since it was first introduced way back in 2006.
That is more than most lotteries! Prepare for a trip to Atlantis where you will discover mermaids, lost treasures and, with a little bit of luck, huge jackpots!
Aside from the beautiful and serene backdrop depicting watery scenes from the mythical lost city of Atlantis, the screen is occupied by a standard 5×3 reel grid with ten fixed paylines, which pay from both left to right and right to left.
The graphics are great in this game. Land an expanding wild, for example, and you will encounter a beautiful mermaid. She will trigger respins and wins potentially in excess of 500x your stake. There is also a golden clam symbol below the jackpot displays that will illuminate when it is ready to trigger the jackpot wheel. The scene is set and the theme completed by a nice almost mystical-sounding soundtrack full of interesting sound effects.
As with any other the other Mega Moolah progressive jackpot slots, the focus is really on the jackpots which are won from the Mega Moolah Jackpot Wheel. There are four tiers: Mini, Minor, Major and Mega. The seed sizes are as follows:
It is worth bearing in mind that stake size plays an important role in this game with your overall chance of winning a jackpot always being relative to your bet size.
The golden clam will light up when the jackpot wheel is triggered but don’t fall into the trap of thinking this will happen as soon as you collect a certain amount of pearls. The pearls are a little bit confusing because, ultimately, when the clam lights up is a purely random event.
Much of the standard gameplay is set around expanding wilds and respins. Land a mermaid on reels two, three or four and you and she will rise to the full height of the reels and award you a free respin. Land another one on the respin and it will transform into an expanded sticky wild and reward you with yet another respin. You will get a maximum of three respins in this way.

As with most of the games in the Mega Moolah series, Atlantean Treasures: Mega Moolah slot machine game is an exciting slot to play. The format is simple and familiar. The Mega Moolah progressive jackpot structure is exciting to say the least. You can play at stakes ranging from 0.10 to 200.00 per spin, so more than enough to interest most players.
As you might expect from a progressive jackpot game, the return to player percentage is relatively low at only 92.08%. You won’t be complaining about that seemingly low percentage, however, if you are lucky enough to land the jackpot. Atlantean Treasures is a fun and exciting game to play and there is a chance you could bring home some real treasure!
