On 2nd January 2019, the first slots player to win a million pounds in the year did so on one of the two versions! The Major Millions slot comes in two versions; a three reels and newer five reels version.
At this point, we have few details of the win, other than the value of the gain that was at over £1.7 million when it dropped on Major Millions.
It was closer to £1.8 million at an impressive £1,784,423.
That’s not a bad payout granting the Major
Other Major Millions Wins
This latest win is considerably higher than that of the preceding winner of 15 weeks ago. That winner only landed a prize of £365,422. It is by no means the smallest Major Millions jackpot won, which was just £252,043.
The largest ever jackpot for Major Millions was won in August of last year, but like this winner, very few details of the win are available.
The player landed the required symbols in the correct position on the reels and netted himself or herself an impressive £2,801,619.
On average the prize pot is £534,149 and won every six weeks or so.
Playing Major Millions
If you fancy playing Major Millions to win a million pounds yourself, then you’ll need to give the progressive jackpot a little time to grow. It took nearly 15 weeks to reach £1.7 million.
You can play the game at any of the popular online casinos that boast Microgaming slots in their portfolio.
For the five-reel version of Major Millions, the progressive jackpot gets won when five wild symbols land on the 15th pay line.
For the classic three-reel version, three wilds on the third pay line is what is needed to trigger a jackpot win.
Major Millions is regarded as a volatile game which means that a big win can happen at any time. It also means that you can spin a lot and not win anything.
If you are after a major jackpot, there are worse games to play and this old favourite does manage to pay out often and large on both Major Millions versions.
