Marvellous Microgaming Money-Themed Slots

money-themed progressive jackpotsMicrogaming’s slots are a great way to win money at online and mobile casinos, so it makes sense that the developer has a good selection of cash-themed slots in its portfolio. All stamped with Microgaming’s trademark attention to detail and intelligent humour, their graphics and functionality will also blow you away. We’ve listed a few of our favourites for you.

Major Millions

Also available as a MegaSpin slot, the original Major Millions game is exciting enough. It’s one of Microgaming’s oldest slots but as a true classic has really stood the test of time. Done in an enjoyably quirky and cartoonish style, the central character is Major Millions himself who seems to have retired into accumulated wealth. Images on the reels include the major himself, a fighter plane, his cap, his medals, binoculars that show dollar signs and top-secret documents.

Fittingly enough, for a slot with a financial theme, it is a progressive jackpot game. This is triggered when 5 of the game logo wild symbols line up on the last line of this 15-payline slot, and awards whatever the current jaw-dropping total, which is displayed above the reels, is sitting at.

Life of Riches

Oh for a life of riches and luxury, preferably following a big slots win! This luxurious lifestyle is what this 5-reel, 30-payline slot creates and promotes. Who wouldn’t want a life filled with the symbols that are seen on the reels, which themselves are set against an opulent red background.

The images include a beautiful girl (possibly a trophy wife?) in various poses at a casino, next to a private jet, in a sports car, at a golf club and on a yacht. Lower-value symbols also denote a life of wealth and privilege; among them are a set of luggage bags, a passport and a pair of sunglasses, suggesting a jet-setting lifestyle.

The suitably bling game logo functions as the wild symbol, and the theoretical RTP of 96.1% makes every reward worth playing for. On the days when you are very busy, you can still take every opportunity to make some moolah with Life of Riches by activating the AutoPlay feature. This will keep the reels turning by themselves while you take care of other things. It may not be as entertaining as spinning for yourself, but it is just as rewarding.

Cash Crazy

Cash Crazy is unique in our list in that it is what is known as a classic or a reel slot, inspired by the original slot machines of days gone by and featuring only 3 reels. Like most Microgaming classic slots, its simple symbols have a vintage feel along with a few nods to the theme of the game. In this case, that means a man clutching cash with dollar signs in his eyes acting as the wild symbol, and the game logo sitting on a pile of cash below the reels.

The point of slot games, ultimately, is indeed to win money, and the paired-down feel of classic games always seems to allude to that. This makes it an especially good fit for a money theme, and Cash Crazy carries it off with aplomb.

Special features are kept to a minimum, but there is a wild symbol that makes it possible to create even more winning combinations. The simplicity of the game makes it ideal for those who are still learning about slots, and will appeal to purists at the same time.


Microgaming’s design team is really shown at the height of its powers in Cashapillar, which has a great sense of humour and an incredibly intricate story line with special features to match. The action plays out over 5 reels and an incredible 100 paylines, and is set in the garden where Cashapillar himself is having a party. He has invited all his friends, and the cute characters, vibrant colours and twinkling music all add to the happy feeling that the slot generates.

You’ll be happier than ever when you see what you can win in the Cashapillar slot game; its theoretical RTP is 95% and its top jackpot is a whopping 2 000 000 coin payout! While it may not feature a progressive jackpot, this incredible prize goes a long way to making up for that and should be more than enough to satisfy even the most gold digging of players. And with a betting range of 0.01 to 200, everyone has a shot at a slice of the Cashapillar’s birthday cake!

Special features include stacked wilds and a free spins round, as well as a gamble feature that will make you feel like the high roller that you are. Correctly predict the colour of a randomly generated playing card to double your money, but remember that if you are wrong you’ll lose everything. It’s an optional thrill, but players who risk big to win big find it hard to resist.
