MAJOR MILLIONS REVIEW
Game Major Millions
Major Millions is a progressive jackpot video slots game, and the sequel to Major Millions Classic. Unlike the original, which was a simple three-reel, one-payline machine, Major Millions is a 5-reel video slot with 15 paylines, the 15th of which is the most important; the only one in which the progressive jackpot can be won in (meaning you must play all 15 paylines to have a chance at winning it). Major Millions was recently made available for mobile devices, and is one of the best choices for landing a major jackpot on the go.
Major Millions is an army-themed slot machine, with images of secret documents, service medals, tanks, binoculars and the like making up the various symbols used for the game. Achieving 3 to 5 of any of the basic symbols along one of the 15 paylines results in prizes of varying amounts. The wild symbol is the Major Millions logo, which can function as any of the other symbols except the scatter, and triples the winning amount of any combination it is a part of. The only exception is the scatter simple, which needs only 2 along a payline to make a winning combination, which doubles the bet amount. More scatters award larger multipliers of the bet amount.
Most people will be playing for the progressive jackpot however, especially given the lack of any bonus modes in the game. The progressive jackpot starts out at $250,000 after being claimed, and routinely climbs into the millions of dollars before being won again, with the jackpot often increasing at an exponential rate as the jackpot climbs and more and more people spend more and more time playing the game to try and win it. To do so, the player needs to score 5 wild symbols on the 15th payline.
Given Major Millions' lack of bonus modes, the auto-play feature can definitely come in handy. Using it, players can set 5, 10, or any number of spins to be conducted on their behalf, without needing any further input. Simply launch the autoplay into action and sit back and watch the blur of spinning reels, perhaps while sitting in your most fervent "please let me hit the jackpot" praying position.
Major Millions is all about the progressive jackpot, with everything else just window dressing. If you're looking for a game with more variety of play and different modes to unlock, this is not the game. If you're looking for a simple game that is easy to follow, has low volatility and potentially very high rewards, then this is the game for you.
