Major Millions Slot
Major Millions is a 5-reel, max 15-pay line online slot from Microgaming with a progressive jackpot. This slot has something of a mixed reputation. It's good, in that the progressive jackpot is paid out on a regular basis. It's also poor, in that despite the slot's title, the prize fund infrequently slides above the one million mark. The stats you need to know are as follows:
- Jackpot re-seeds at: £250,000.
- Biggest win: £1,801,517.
- Average win: £375,426.
- Average time: 72 days.
This slot also has a very poor return-to-player ratio, so your main reason for playing it is the hope that you can land that progressive jackpot. One further note – you MUST play with all lines active and at the max bet level to be eligible to win the jackpot.
Major Millions comes complete with a military theme, and 'Major Millions' indeed is portrayed as a military man, probably (judging by his uniform) in the US navy. The other symbols used in the game are binoculars, dynamite, the Major's hat, a handful of medals, some top secret files, a tank, a plane, a ship and the good Major himself.
Your coin size can be anything from 0.02 to 0.20, and you can select the number of lines that you want in play from one to all fifteen. You can also select your bet level from one to five. Your final wager is all these three values multiplied together. Payouts are won by landing at least three indentical symbols in sequence on an active pay line from the left hand reel. When you're ready to start 'gunning' for that juicy jackpot, hit the spin button.
Payout & bonus rounds
Payouts commence at 2x for three pairs of binoculars. The jackpot, aside from the progressive jackpot, is 1,000x, and is won by landing five of Major Millions.
The 'Major Millions logo' acts as the wild symbol in this game. You can win prize cash by landing wilds on an active pay line, and the wild subsitutes for all other symbols aside from the scatter symbol. If you land five wild symbols on the fifteenth pay line then congratulations – you've just won the progressive jackpot! Enjoy your (hopefully) major millions! Also, all wins that contain a wild symbol are tripled.
The word 'scatter' acts as the scatter symbol. If you land at least three scatter symbols anywhere on the reels you win a payout. The more you land (up to a maximum of five), the more you win.
And that's all about there is for Major Millions. It's as simple an online slot as you can perhaps get, with wilds and scatters but no bonus features and only basic graphics. If you play slots in the hope of winning a substantial amount of cash, then that's very probably the only reason to play Microgaming's occasional millionaire-making progressive jackpot online slot.
