Yggdrasil Gaming has brought the classic fruit machine slap bang up to date in Joker Millions, a 5 reel, 25 payline slot that comes with re-spins, frozen symbols and massive 6 and even 7-figure progressive jackpots. Play between 25p and £25 per spin.
If you grew up playing classic one-arm bandit style slots, you’ll find plenty to enjoy here. The reels include an array of old school symbols including bells, melons, cherries, plums, oranges and lemons. The biggest payer is the lucky 7 which pays out 300 times your line bet if you manage to find 5 in an active payline.
The first feature to notice is the Freeze and Respin. Every time a winning combination hits, a payout will be made. The winning symbols will be frozen in place and the reels spun again offering a second bite at the payout cherry. As long as another of the frozen symbol appears, the re-spins will continue offering even more chances to win.
Joker Millions also comes with multipliers. Every time you fill up a column with 3 of the same symbol, you’ll benefit from a multiplier. It starts at 2x for filling two columns and goes up to 5x if you manage to fill up all five columns. The frozen symbols certainly help to fill those columns up here. This is exactly the same feature found in Fruitoids by the way.
The main attraction in Joker Millions is the Jackpot Spin which is triggered when you hit 5 joker symbols anywhere on the reels. You’ll immediately be awarded 5 mystery bonus wins which range from between 5 and 2,500 coins. The jokers will then freeze in place and the wheel will re-spin.
Just like the frozen symbols, the reels will continue to spin as long as a joker symbol hits. They’ll also freeze into the place. The more jokers you hit, the bigger the potential prize. If you’re lucky enough to fill all 15 spaces with a joker, you’ll hit the progressive jackpot and be in line for a life-changing payout!
Yggdrasil Gaming has created a little beauty in Joker Millions. The visuals are simple but look HD compared to some of their rivals’ offerings. The on screen action is played out to a jaunty, jazzy soundtrack. The spins are super smooth, even if you opt for the fastest rate of play.
Joker Millions offers plenty in the base game as well as the progressive jackpot. The sticky wilds and re-spins mean you’re not just hoping on the progressive to have a chance of winning. Of course that progressive is a mighty impressive carrot. The jackpot starts at €100,000 but can theoretically top the €3m mark.
Joker Millions would get the thumbs up even if it didn’t have the progressive element. Saying that, Yggdrasil Gaming are not as well-known as other providers such as Microgaming or Net Entertainment so expect their progressive jackpots to naturally be lower. If you want guaranteed jackpots over £1 million, try NetEnt’s Mega Fortune.
