Major Millions Pokie
A somewhat older pokie (dates from 2009), but still accessible. It is all about the progressive jackpot. Major Millions was one of the first online pokies with a high progressive jackpot which starts with $ 250,000 and can in principle get unlimited. So far, the biggest Major Millions jackpot has ever been € 1,945,844.
Meanwhile, Major Millions has been overtaken by another Microgaming jackpot pokie, namely Mega Moolah. The disadvantages of Major Millions are the meagre payout percentage of 89.37 per cent and the relatively high bets that are required to play for the jackpot.
On average, the Major Millions jackpot generates around 475 thousand. Someone takes this jackpot every 6 to 7 weeks. Especially in recent years, the jackpot has risen somewhat higher than in the beginning.
You can also win this jackpot on Major Millions Progressive 5 Reels. Are you the next Major Millions millionaire?
How Does Major Millions Work?
You play for this jackpot with $ 3 per spin. So Major Millions is not for those who want to have an evening of online casino with ten-dollar play money. There are 3 paylines and you play with $ 1 per each of them. It's best to play Major Millions if the jackpot is relatively high (above $ 750,000) and you have a substantial account balance.
You decide how many paylines you play, but you can only win the Major Millions jackpot if you play with 3 paylines. Playing with one or two paylines means that you can win up to $ 25,000 or $ 50,000. You then play with an 89.37 per cent payout percentage. With 3 paylines you participate in the jackpot, and you play with a 92.68 percent payout percentage.
Major Millions Progressive 3 Reels is a simple 3-reel slot. The Major Millions symbol is Wild and provides an X2 multiplier. Two Wild symbols even means an X4 multiplier. For example, two Wild symbols in combination with the red 7 yield $1,600 per payline. Three blue 7s give you $ 80. Besides, BAR symbols and cherries are used.
In summary: the basic game is not very interesting, but we had already warned you about this in the intro.
How Do You Win the Major Millions Jackpot?
That is very simple. Or so it sounds. Three Major Millions symbols on the third payline mean that you have won the jackpot. You no longer have to spin a jackpot wheel like with Mega Moolah, and you no longer have to play a bonus game. Three times the Wild on the third payline means that you take the progressive jackpot.
Although this pokie is quite aged, there are still a lot of players who take the chance to win Major Millions. That's a good thing because the jackpot rises faster when many players play this online pokie. Part of every bet goes into the jackpot.
What Do We Think of Major Millions?
A reasonably simple pokie. The only reason to play it is the progressive jackpot. It is best to take a chance if the jackpot is relatively high. Otherwise, we think $ 3 per spin is an expensive joke.
What kind of players risks the chance at Major Millions? These are mainly players who want to play for the jackpot and do not want to be "distracted" too much with bonus games and other frills. Major Millions has no bonus game. Three times the Wild symbol on the 3rd payline means you have the jackpot. Microgaming has not made it too complicated.
