An ideal slot for jackpot hunters and fans of quirky slot themes, Jackpot Giant secures its place among the top Playtech games for progressive jackpot wins.
In fact, the interesting and unusual theme coupled with excellent graphics and mechanics are simply a plus, but enough to make us pick Jackpot Giant among other Playtech jackpot slots. What’s more is that it’s available on mobile, with the same bonus features and millions to be won from the jackpot, on the go.
Game Theme & Background
Right off the bat, the imagery of Jackpot Giant looks both charming and exciting, as the volcano of gold clearly implies that riches await.
That said, we’re not sure what to make of the theme. It seems as if it’s meant to be part prehistoric and part mythological, as the primitive-looking giant seems to be controlling volcanoes, while many of the symbols have a carved-out, ancient look.
Overall however, the incredible 3D graphics set you up for a quality game, and it doesn’t disappoint. Although Playtech is known for immersive games – especially in terms of themes, graphics and overall design – Jackpot Giant is probably one of the most inventive in this capacity.
The graphics and animations feel just like a animated movie, which helps to set the mood and get the player involved in the game as much as possible. In fact, the cheerful nature of the friendly giant – the protagonist of the game – is an excellent touch to an otherwise great game. The giant seems to be in control of volcanoes, making them erupt gold coins. Keep playing, and some of that gold might be yours to take home.
- Highly lucrative jackpot feature.
- Interesting bonus feature.
- High quality graphics and immersive gameplay.
- Jackpot is only triggered at the highest stake
Playtech have outdone themselves with this 5-reel, 3 row, 50 payline jackpot slot. Although not as popular as some other slots by this provider, we think that the interesting theme, two bonus features, and chance at a massive jackpot make the game worth your time.
In this game you’ll find wilds, gold wilds, and scatter symbols to make gameplay more fun and increase your chances of scoring big. The design of the game couldn’t work better, as video slots of this time function excellently when the combination of features is balanced and well thought out.
What’s more is that you can easily TRIPLE your winnings when you benefit from the Jackpot Giant scatter symbols work their magic and trigger the giant bonus round. In fact, playing this game is worthwhile just for this immensely profitable feature which will make your day and expand your bank balance.
Not only does it put you in a (much) better chance to take home a massive prize, it is also a fun feature to play in itself. The providers have designed this game in such a way that every aspect of the game is fun and something to look forward to.
The jackpot is, of course, the main feature of this excellent game. To trigger the jackpot, you need to get 5 wilds on payline 1, so watch out for these highly profitable symbols.
Bonuses & Special Features
Click Me bonus
With the Click Me bonus, you get to pick volcanoes and possibly win between 15x to 30x your original bet – a significant sum, depending on your wager. Simply look for the symbol with ‘Bonus’ on it on it and 6 volcanoes will appear on your screen; your job is simply to pick 3 and keep your fingers crossed.
By far the most lucrative feature of this game is its jackpot. However, in order to get a shot at clinching the top payout, you’ll have to wager the highest stake possible. At 4.00 per spin, this might be more than a casual player’s budget, but nobody said becoming a millionaire would be that easy!
The symbols are linked to different payouts, and apart from the typical low-paying symbols, the special symbols are the ones truly worth looking out for on the reels. The wild symbol, which is the gold stone symbol, can replace all other symbols except for the scatter symbol and the bonus symbol. The scatter symbol, on the other hand, is depicted by a giant hand filled with gold coins acts as a scatter symbol, paying up whenever you’re lucky enough to get 3 or more showing up anywhere on the reels.
Volatility & Betting Limits
Jackpot Giant can be played from 0.50 to 4.00 a spin, so this game should appeal to a wide player base. However, this medium variance slot will probably find more favour among high rollers and those ready to set aside a bigger budget in order to have a chance at the multi-million jackpot that can be won on this game.
Indeed, Jackpot Giant stands out due to its jackpot feature, but you need to play a maximum stake to stand a chance at winning a whopping 50,000x your line bet – which translates to 1,000x your original stake!
For all intents and purposes, this is a money-making slot machine. The only downside we can think of, in fact, is that the jackpot requires a maximum bet. Despite the sweet and charming nature of this unusual theme, the reality is that without a big enough backroll, you might not go as far as you otherwise would have at Jackpot Giant.
That said, the mechanics are simple, the graphics are excellent, and the game is overall immersive and incredibly enjoyable to play – and any Playtech fan should try this game.
