Jackpot Express Slot RTP, Details & Wager Limits

The Jackpot Express slot uses a 5 reel, 20 payline game engine. Winners are formed by landing 3 or more matching symbols or wilds in a payline on adjoining reels, starting from reel 1.

You can climb aboard this riverboat casino from between 20p and £100 per spin. There are plenty of autoplay options here. You can set up to 1,000 autospins as required. You can also adjust spin speed via the settings tab.

The Jackpot Express RTP is a reasonable 96.2% with a hit frequency of 32%. This means nearly 1 in 3 spins will result in a winning combination. The maximum win is 2,175 x your total stake per spin. However, you can win the progressive jackpots which are a lot higher.

Theme – Audio & Design Features – superb visuals + a laid back jazzy soundtrack

Jackpot Express slot base game

Games from Yggdrasil Gaming have a definite ‘look’ and the Jackpot Express slot is in the usual, and very impressive, house style. The setting is a classic riverboat casino. The visuals are all rather lovely, backed by a jazzy, piano-heavy backing track which delivers plenty of atmosphere. As usual for a slot from Yggdrasil, Jackpot Express looks and sounds terrific.

The lower values symbols are brightly coloured casino chips. More rewarding are the croupier and glamorous gamblers. The most rewarding standard symbol is the bearded ship’s captain who pays 2.5, 5 or 12.5 x your total stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline. There’s also a wild which substitutes for all regular symbols.

Yggdrasil Gaming has crafted a cracking Jackpot Express mobile slot. The design on the smaller screen devices works superbly and the simple gameplay stacks up well. This is a very playable mobile slot.

Bonus Features in Jackpot Express

Free spins with extras are the highlights as far as this riverboat gambling journey is concerned. There are 3 bonus rounds where the extras are determined by cards, dice or a roulette wheel. There’s also an opportunity to land 1 of 3 jackpot prizes.

3 Free Spins features

The piles of gold coins symbol is the bonus symbol. Land 3 bonus gold coins on the same spin and you’ll trigger the feature round. It will take approximately 111 spins to trigger the free spins.

In all cases, you can look forward to 10 free spins. You will then play 1 of the following free spins features:

  • Card Free Spins feature: at the end of each free spin, 2 cards are drawn, one for you and one for the dealer. If the value of your card is higher than that of the dealer, you’ll be awarded a sticky wild which will be in play for any free spins you have left.
  • Dice Free Spins feature: each time you land a winning combination, 2 dice are rolled. Their values are added together to create a multiplier which is then applied to your win from that spin. For example, say you rolled a 3 and a 4. That would mean a 7x multiplier boost. The perfect combination is of course, the double six which sends your payout rocketing by 12x. The minimum multiplier is 2x.
  • Roulette Free Spins feature: on each free spin, you’ll get a spin of a roulette wheel. This will award one of the following: 1 or 2 more free spins, a x2 or x3 multiplier, a sticky wild, a prize of between 1 and 5 x stake or nothing.

Jackpots feature

Jackpot Express slot Jackpots feature

Landing 3 bonus symbols doesn’t just trigger the free spins rounds. It could also activate the Jackpots feature. This a multi-level prize wheel where you can land coin prizes or hit an arrow which takes you to the next layer of the wheel. Look out for gemstones which double the value of all the coin prizes on the wheel as well as awarding a respin.

There are 3 potential jackpot prizes here:

  • You can land the Mini and Side jackpots if you progress to the level 2 wheel.
  • For a shot at landing the big Major Jackpot prize you’ll need to advance to level 3 of the wheel. You can see how much each jackpot is worth via the meters above the reels.

When it comes to the jackpots, here’s the expected payouts:

  • Mini Jackpot: £500
  • Side Jackpot: £4,000
  • Major Jackpot: £100,000

Jackpot Express Review Summary – classy design + top features

We were impressed with the Jackpot Express slot. It looks and sounds superb and comes with a trio of top free spins rounds. Throw in the potential riches on offer via the jackpot wheel and you have a very playable all-round package. One thing did confuse us though. Why is this slot called Jackpot Express? The setting is a boat not a train? Strange.

That very minor gripe aside, you should find plenty to keep you entertained in this very playable reworking of the classic riverboat casino.

Whilst the Major Jackpot should pay around £100,000 when it hits, they are other progressive jackpot slots which offer much more potentially. NetEnt’s Hall of Gods and Playtech’s Jackpot Giant spring to mind.
