Progressive jackpot games is a lucrative type of slot where the player have a very slim, yet existing chance to take home ridiculous amount of money even if your bet is in the lower range. The same progressive jackpots can be won on different new casinos, meaning it is not local for a specific casino. This is called a pooled jackpot. A new world record progressive jackpot win was recorded on Microgamings Mega Moolah this year in September when a lucky player took home a €18,910,668 jackpot. In this guide I will cover the Joker Millions jackpot game which holds a current jackpot of over €7 million.
The creator of Joker Millions is a Malta based studio with the name of Yggdrasil. They are known for games such as Golden Fishtank and Vikings Go Berzerk and has great success with their well designed games. They released Joker Millions in 2015 and this was the company’s first ever progressive jackpot slot. Later on they added another progressive jackpot slot to their portfolio called Empire Fortune. The same pooled mega jackpot can be won in both of these games.
Looking at the history of Joker Millions we can see that it takes an average of 146 days between jackpots. The average win is as high as €2,382,000 and the record jackpot reached €5,196,319. Today’s jackpot is currently at over €7 Millions which makes it the biggest in the games history. It was 272 days ago it last dropped.
The Return To Player (RTP) in Joker Millions is 94.3% while 5.5% of the bet value goes towards the progressive jackpot. The probability to win the jackpot is proportional to your bet size. The higher you bet the better chance you have to win the jackpot. While the base game in the slot has a max win of €62,500 the jackpot can reach unlimited numbers until somebody takes it home. The game has support for both computers and smartphones.
Joker Millions has 25 paylines and 5 reels. It pays by connecting at least 3 of the same symbols on the different lines. When you connect at least 3 of the same symbol it will respin. If you collect more of the same symbol in the respin they will get locked and you’ll get another spin until you don’t connect with the symbol you initially got. The base game itself does not look all that exciting but can pay up if you manage to fill all of the 5 reels with the same symbol. The more reels you fill the higher the multiplier you get. Fill the first 4 for a maximum of 5x. The symbols in this game is the classics with the fruits, bells and sevens.
Additional to that you also have a scatter in the shape of a joker. If you get one on each reel it takes you to the jackpot spin. All of the jokers you collected in the base game locks on the reel. You then get a respin to lock more jokers. It spins again until you don’t land anymore jokers on the reels. Every joker gives you a mystery win of up to 1000 coins. If you manage to fill up the whole screen with jokers you will also get the whole progressive jackpot. Hence the name Joker Millions!
