Progressive jackpot history
Retro style slots are a niche that seems to have a following, as the games are still developed. While video slots with flashy graphics and features are all the rage, classic slots keep chugging along. With their simple visuals and easy to read paylines, the games do have a charm that I can appreciate. Many of the games have progressive prizes too, which is an excellent selling feature. This is the case with the Jackpot Bells slot, which hosts the Jackpot Bells €25 Progressive, which has a huge prize attached to it.
The game itself is a 5 reel, 5 payline slot that actually is a video slot, but has that classic simplicity to it. The game's symbols include cherries, lemons, oranges, plums, grapes, watermelons, 7s and a golden bell. The features are very simplistic, with the game only featuring the progressive jackpot.
That jackpot is won when players are able to line up five golden bells on the game's five reels. This sounds simple, but in reality it doesn't happen too often. As of press time the jackpot is hit every eleven weeks on average. The jackpot grows with every spin of the reels that doesn't take home the top prize, as a portion of the spin goes into the jackpot pool.
The slot is a dream to play if you're a fan of classic slots, but if you're looking for something a bit more developed, you may want to look elsewhere. The jackpot being the only bonus feature can leave you going a long time in between wins. Still, if you can tolerate that, this game is much more playable than the awful Novomatic games that I've come across so many times. The jackpot is attractive, and can there are also smaller prizes that can be won on a budget.
