Amazon Idols Million Maker Slot Review
Amazon Idols Million Maker is a NextGen Gaming jackpot slot with 5 reels and 25 paylines that is playable on all devices from 25p to £62.50 per spin. You go in search for the lost riches of the Amazon to try and unlock the mysteries that immortalised in gold. It comes with a free spins feature where you choose from expanding wilds on certain reels with wild wins up to 5x as well as the chance to 1 of 3 progressive jackpots.
Design wise, you are taken to the magical Amazonian jungle – with a mystical feel, it has a Central and South American influence with a hint of luxury and prestige. Symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 playing cards as well as various Amazonian artefacts – the gold coin is the most rewarding giving you 20 times your stake for 5 on a payline.
The beautiful woman is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols except for the scatter and Jackpot Idol symbol – it will also pay 40 times your stake for 5 across a payline. When it comes to bonus features, Amazon Idols Million Maker has plenty to offer.
Look out for the Amazon Idols scatter symbol as 3, 4 or 5 will give you 2, 20 or 50 times your stake – it will also trigger 1 of 3 bonus features which is chosen at random. First up is the Amazonia Free Games feature where you will receive 10 free spins. You then get 3 choices – they are as follows:
- Expanding wild on reel 3 – wild wins are subject to a 5x multiplier
- Expanding wilds on reels 2, 3 and 4 – wild wins are subject to a 2x multiplier
- Expanding wilds on all 5 reels
The scatters can appear during the free spins meaning you can retrigger the feature and play with 20 free spins in total. Jackpot Idols also appear – 3, 4 or 5 of them will give you the Minor Jackpot, Major Jackpot or Mega Jackpot respectively.
The next feature is the Wheel of Amazonia feature – you spin the wheel to win up to 35 times your total stake or any of the 3 jackpots. You can also land on ‘Spin Again’ which gives you another spin of the wheel – the cash prizes are doubled meaning you can win up to 70 times your stake. You can win any of the 3 jackpots too but their values aren’t doubled.
Finally, there’s the Gird of Amazonia feature where you make 10 selections from the grid – you will simply win cash prizes or a progressive jackpot. Each pick will give you a stake multiplier, a ‘Mega-Pick’ which reveals 5 random positions or a Jackpot Idol – if you uncover 3, 4 or 5, you will take home the Minor, Major of Mega Jackpot respectively.
When it comes to the progressive jackpots, both the Minor and Major jackpots are local to each online casino (or online casino group) – this means they will be on the smaller side (4 or 5 figures). The Mega Jackpot is across all casinos offering NextGen Gaming slots and it will offer at least £1 million!
When it comes to variance, Amazon Idols Million Maker is in the middle – you can win up to 2,380 times your stake on each base game spin whilst it increases dramatically to 25,000 times your stake in the Amazonia Free Games feature (using the 5x multiplier).
Amazon Idols Million Maker is all about the progressive jackpots and especially the Mega Jackpot which is guaranteed to give you at least £1 million if you win it. Saying that, it looks superb and has the potential to pay out some nice sums in the Amazonia Free Games feature. Overall, a great jackpot slot from NextGen Gaming – I also recommend you try their other jackpot title, Millionaires Club: Diamond Edition Jackpots, which is more glitzy and glamourous.
