Game of the Week – The MoneyMania
Online gambling is all about the money and Belatra Games’ newest BTC pokie takes it to the next level. The MoneyMania is all about money and gives you a great chance to wins some greenbacks.
Let’s take a look at this fun pokie based on US money. You’ll also learn how to trigger the lucrative bonus games feature and about three progressive jackpots. The best thing about this game is that you can play it in BTC, making it perfect for lovers of BTC pokies.
It’s All About the Benjamins
The MoneyMania is a 5-Reel, 10 payline online pokie with a simple theme all about US currency. The symbols are all related to money. Even the Royals are in the font you see on most US currency. Otherwise, symbols include Benjamin Franklin, Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, and symbols you see on the $1, $5, and $20 bills.
The Presidents are the highest paying symbols with Ben Franklin paying up to 250 credits for 5 of a Kind. Franklin is also Wild and substitutes for anything other than the scatter. There are also Risk games for those that like to wager their winnings, or you can turn it off to play faster. We recommend skipping the Risk game.
You won’t find a lot of bonus features on this game, but it does have a Bonus Games feature that can net you a big win.
The MoneyMania Bonus Games
The $2 bill serves as the scatter for the game. Land all three pieces of the $2 anywhere on Reels 2 through 4 to trigger the bonus game. Playing the game is simple. First you will select from several notes to reveal a note value. Note face values are $1, $2, $5, $10, $20, $50, or $100.
Next, you will select a number of notes at random. Once completed, your bonus is calculated by multiplying the note value by the number of notes. For example, if you pick $5 and then 15 notes, you will win $75.
This bonus feature is incredibly tough to trigger. According to Belatra Games, the feature frequency is 1:72.77. We tested the game over hundreds of spins and never triggered it. Maybe we were just unlucky or maybe the game plays tight. Your mileage may vary.
Three Progressive Jackpots
The MoneyMania is a progressive jackpot pokie offering three progressive jackpots. You can trigger the Franklin, Jackson, or Linkoln (yes, they spell it that way) jackpots by landing three Jackpot tokens on the board.
However, there is a catch. You must play maximum credits to activate the jackpot. This will make the game quite expensive and significantly increase your bankroll variance.
This is one area where the game could be massively improved. The Franklin jackpot should be available at all stakes. If you play middle stakes, then activate the Jackson jackpot. If you want to keep the Linkoln jackpot at max credits, that’s fine, but give all players a shot at hitting a jackpot.
The MoneyMania a High Variance Game Best Suited for Jackpot Hunters
The MoneyMania is a fun concept and a simple game to play. However, it is also a game with some extremely high variance, especially if you are chasing jackpots. Belatra Games did not release the RTP on this game, but some have estimated it to be as low as 90%. We don’t feel it’s that low, but it is definitely closer to 95%.
If you are not a jackpot chaser, you can give this game a try at lower stakes. We hit a few nice wins in the base game and the bonus games feature may net you a big win. Otherwise, this is a game we primarily recommend for jackpot hunters. The MoneyMania is available at CasinoChan and all online casinos offering Belatra Games.
