Megabucks, created by International Game Technology (IGT), may well be the most famous pokies machine in the world today. Megabucks developed by IGT can be found at online casinos specially also played at Nevada and Las Vegas.

These are awarded when you hit 2 or more progressive jackpot symbols on a spin that turn into a gold bar and take up the entire reel. The prizes range from $10 – $500 for hitting 2 or more on a single spin. The longer time these prizes aren’t won, the bigger the prize for hitting them, as they increase during each spin of the reels. Cabinets come in red, green (Megabucks Emerald 7s) and yellow, though blue is commonly found too in the Megabucks Wild Sapphires game which is in fact a 6 reel pokies with a 3-reel “Mega Game” above the standard reels.
