With a name like Jackpot Giant, this online slot from Playtech has a lot to live up to – but it does so, thanks to its impressive graphics and the massive progressive jackpot on offer. Visually it’s an impressive production but really the Jackpot Giant slot game is all about the progressive jackpot – and like any progressive jackpot slot, that's what will attract players to give it a spin!
Jackpot Giant is a five-reel slot with three rows and a big 50 paylines. When players load up the game, they're greeted with a dramatic intro video that presents the premise of the slot – a giant who's flicking gold coins into a volcano, causing an eruption of money.
Set in the Stone Age, the Jackpot Giant slot is well-presented, with the transparent reels allowing players to view the full beauty of the landscape in the background. The symbols animate when they form winning combinations and the giant himself even appears on screen occasionally.
The number of paylines is fixed at 50 so players simply have to choose their line bet, which ranges from £0.01 to £0.08 – in other words, betting ranges from 50p to £4 per spin. The icons are made up of card ranks and various gems as well as the bonus, wild and scatter symbols.
The giant himself features in two of the symbols standing behind a volcano and with some trees. These are both stacked icons, meaning they can cover the entire reel to boost the chances of landing a win. Aside from the progressive jackpot, the other feature in the Jackpot Giant slot is the Giant Bonus feature.
The key to this is the bonus symbol, which appears only on reels one and five. If it does so simultaneously in one spin during the base game, players are taken to a separate screen where they're presented with six volcanoes and must pick three. There are cash prizes to be won, plus extra picks and a ‘win all’ prize.
However, the game is all about the Giant Jackpot feature, which is triggered by landing five wild symbols on payline one (straight across the five reels on the middle row). Players must bet at the maximum level to be in with a chance of winning the progressive jackpot and the feature is available only during the base game.
During the game, the current value of the progressive jackpot is displayed at the top of the screen. Landing five wilds on any other payline still pays out 50,000 times the stake, which is certainly not to be scoffed at, while five scatter symbols (the hand holding gold coins) awards 500 times the stake. We’re not ‘bigging things up’ too much to say that players of the Jackpot Giant online slot machine will be erupting with joy if they scoop the progressive jackpot!
