On February 16, Major Millions struck again and made a very lucky player $1,896,320 richer! This is the 64th time the progressive jackpot was paid out and it’s the second largest win in the slot’s history. It’s about $50,000 short of the highest win which occurred in May last year.
What’s the Major Millions slot?
Major Millions remains one of Microgaming’s most popular progressive slots even after its release more than 15 years ago. There are two versions of the game and both of them share the same progressive jackpot. You can win the jackpot on the classic 3-reel slot with just three paylines or on the upgraded 5-reel video slot with 15 paylines. Although the graphics are understandably a bit outdated, the biggest allure of the game is its much sought-after pooled jackpot which often go above a whopping $1 million. It’s this potential to turn you into an instant millionaire with just one spin that keeps punters coming back for more.
How do you win the Major Millions progressive jackpot?
Winning the Major Millions progressive jackpot is very simple but far from easy. If you’re playing the classic version, you’ll need to land three Major Millions wild symbols on the third payline to grab the jackpot. For the 5-reel video slot, spin five Major Millions wild symbols on the 15th payline and you’ll walk away with a life-changing amount of money. In both versions, you’ll need to bet the maximum amount to be eligible to win the progressive jackpot. The jackpot starts at a quarter of million dollars and a meter is displayed at the top of the reels so you’ll know exactly how high the amount has reached.
