Progressive jackpot history
Yggdrasil Gaming has released a lot of great looking slots that it develops in its Malta based studio. The release of Joker Millions in 2015 was the company's first pooled progressive jackpot game. These days you can also play another of the studio's games, Empire Fortune, in your quest to take down this potentially multi-million Euro monster jackpot.
Joker Millions is a 5 reel, 25 payline video slot that features a modern video slot layout with symbols that bring you back to the days of classic 3-reel machines. The game has a large progressive jackpot tied to it that grows with every single bet placed by a player. Symbols in Joker Millions include cherries, plums, lemons, watermelons, bells, 7s, and joker symbols. The game is very fun to play, mainly due to its "freeze and re-spin" feature, where any winning payline symbols are held and the non-winning symbols are re-spun for free, giving you the chance to win more on every spin. The game also features column multipliers and the Jackpot Spins feature.
The jackpot may be won when a player ends up getting 5 joker symbols to move to the Jackpot Spins bonus round. In this feature, the game spins the reels and holds any joker symbols that are landed, which also happen to pay you a mystery win of up to 1000 coins. Every time at least one more joker symbol appears on a spin, you get another spin. If you manage to fill all 15 positions on the reels with joker symbols, you win the game's considerable progressive jackpot.
Yggdrasil released a second game in October 2016 named Empire Fortune that contributes to the same jackpot pool as Joker Millions. The 20 payline game is an opulent looking title, displaying various jewels and jewellery that you might expect to find in someone like the Queen of England's treasury. It actually has a three level jackpot with the Joker Millions prize obviously being the top level. This game calls it the Empire Jackpot and to win it you'll have to get into the bonus wheel round by landing three or more bonus symbols on a single spin. Once there if you manage to spin the jackpot symbol on the top tier wheel you win the prize listed on this page.
