Progressive jackpot history
Happy Days is a legendary television show that ran from 1974 through to 1984, following the tales of the Cunningham family from Wisconsin as well their friends. It spawned three spinoff shows and featured some very popular characters including the Fonz, Richie, Al, Howard, and Marion. The show brought Ron Howard to prominence playing Richie Cunningham, and he later went on to become one of Hollywood's most prolific directors.
The Happy Days slot is a 5 reel slot designed by Blueprint Gaming. The jackpot won when players are able to pick up a record that has the progressive jackpot symbol in the slot's Record Picker bonus round. The slot has both a progressive jackpot as well as a reserve jackpot, both of which are funded with every single wager. Every wager sees 2% of the stake contributed towards the jackpot, while 0.2% is put into the reserve jackpot.
The Happy Days slot has traditional slot symbols (9, 10, Jack, Queen, King, Ace), plus characters Joanie, Chachi, Richie, and the Fonz, along with a show logo, and a jukebox. The game's symbols include wild symbols, a golden record symbol, and the above-mentioned Record Picker Bonus Round. The only disappointment for me was that they didn't make reference to Fonzie "jumping the shark" in that famous scene that gave rise to the now commonly used phrase.
As a child, the sitcom Happy Days was on every morning, as my babysitter was obsessed with reliving her youth by having the Fonz and Richie living it up at Al's Diner. The Happy Days Jackpot affords you the opportunity to relive that time while potentially winning a huge jackpot. It is a game that you certainly should check out if you're a nostalgic person, or a fan of this classic show.
