About Major Millions
Major Millions from Microgaming offers up a no-frills gaming experience that is ideal for players who prefer to play more traditional style online slots. There are two versions – a classic 3 reel Major Millions with 3 paylines and a more modern version with 5 reels and 15 paylines.
For both games, the maximum wager is just £3. With most progressive jackpot slots, you have to place quite a high maximum wager to be able to cash in on the grand prize – but Major Millions offers an affordable max bet that caters to a wide range of players.
The main bonus feature available in Major Millions is the progressive jackpot prize. Both the 3-reel and 5-reel games allow you to cash in on the same jackpot – but, you go about doing so in different ways:
- On the 3-reel Major Millions online slot machine, you must land three wilds symbols on the third payline.
- On the 5-reel Major Millions online slot machine, you must land five wild symbols on the 15th
The jackpot for Major Millions pays out nearly every 6 weeks and its average prize tends to be worth about £450 million. The jackpot seeds at £250 000, so every prize that it pays out is guaranteed to be a life-changing one. In terms of records, the biggest prize ever awarded by Major Millions was worth an impressive £1.9, which was paid out in 2017.
If you’re unfamiliar with how progressive jackpots work, it’s really quite simple. Every progressive jackpot slot seeds at a certain amount, from which point it climbs every time a player makes a bet. This means that a small portion of every wager contributes to the total jackpot pool, which is why progressive jackpots will climb by the second. Whenever a lucky player hits the jackpot, the game returns to its original seed amount and the process starts over.
So, you never know when the game will pay out next. You could very well be the next big winner!
