It’s fair to say that Major Millions is one of those slots that, just like warfare, seems to have been around forever. As revered as Wellington yet as predictable as Napolean, this classic old military-themed slot from Microgaming has been wowing punters for almost as long as North Korea has been building Meccano missiles.
Happily, age has not diminished the Major’s appeal in the slightest. With its straightforward gameplay and nuclear progressive jackpot hits, this legendary game marches on like a recently promoted grenadier on double rations. Players who enjoy the strategy of war games but the excitement of the spinners is sure to love this topnotch video slot!
While there’s no doubting this old five-reel, 15-payline slot maintains a huge following, it’s not unkind to say the game itself looks a little dated by modern standards. This is to be expected when you consider the Major Millions slot game was released way back in 2000, when Microgaming was a largely unknown quantity in the developing market.
So you have to put the somewhat faltering storylines and video effects into perspective. Fortunately, the game has two aspects that render imperfections largely redundant: great gameplay and fantastic progressive rewards. Playing this is like getting on an old Space Invaders or Pacman arcade game.
The video slot is so simple (just spin and crack on) that you just can't help but keep coming back for more. Match that with a progressive jackpot that rarely dips below the 40K mark (though it’s known to hit well above that) and it’s clear you’ve got something pretty special. And it’s all on hand for just £0.20 - £3.00 a spin too.
The reels on the Major Millions online slot are dotted with mementos of a life of military service. Whizzing round you’ll see binoculars, the major’s cap, a collection of medals, an ammunition box, some secret documents, a tank, fighter plane and a warship. The major himself will pop up from time to time as well.
A big explosion (the scatter) and the Major Millions logo (the wild) are the symbols to keep your eyes peeled for. Scatters earn rewards regardless of where they pop up, though three or more are needed to bag a cash prize. Every scatter win augments other payline wins made and is multiplied by the total number of credits staked on that spin.
Using the wild to create a winning payline triples the amount you’d ordinarily win. If you land three wilds across a payline then you’ll bag 80 coins. Four pays out 280 while five (lined up across the first 14 paylines) nets a bunker-busting 8,000 coins, the game’s biggest base game jackpot.
Landing five wilds on the 15th payline (the one that starts with the symbol in the bottom left-hand corner then zig-zags across to finish in the lower right-hand corner) is what puts you in nuclear territory, i.e. the progressive jackpot drop. Manage this and you’ll be partying like a sailor with indefinite shore leave for weeks...
