As mentioned above, Jackpot Giant is a 5-reel, 50-payline slot game. The fact that it has a progressive jackpot and players are provided with the opportunity to generate massive wins with relatively small investments has made it popular worldwide.
Because of the small betting range, the playing sessions are not too expensive. There is only one bonus game provided, but the game still has great features such as stacked symbols, and of course, the progressive jackpot.
The combinations at the active lines are formed by the basic elements. The symbols drop out next to each other at the active line that is played, starting from the first reel in the left. The winning combination is the longest one at each of the lines. Still, several paid combinations can be formed at different lines over the exact same spin.
The pay-offs in Jackpot Giant are calculated by the standard formula. The bet per line is multiplied by the special index written by a special table for each of the combinations possible. The indexes displayed in the payment table of the game vary in the range from x10 to x50,000.
Players can easily recognize the Wild symbol of the game, which is to appear on all reels and substitute the rest of the symbols apart from the scatter and the bonus symbol.
The Scatter symbol is actually the hand of the Giant, holding some golden coins. Hitting the scatter here is different in comparison to most slots, because hitting three or more such symbols will not unlock a Free spins feature because Jackpot Giant does not have such a feature.
The Bonus symbol in the game is the Volcano. When hit anywhere on reels 1 and 5, the symbol will unlock the only bonus game provided by Jackpot Giant, called the Giant Bonus.
The player is taken to a different screen displaying the main character of the game – the Giant – standing behind six smoking volcanoes in a row. The player is required to choose a total of three volcanoes in order to get a cash prize. When the player is making their choice, the Giant flicks a coin into the chosen volcano and the player’s prize is revealed. There is also a possibility of striking a special reward – another free pick.
In order for the player to get access to the progressive jackpot offered by the game, they are required to be playing at the maximum bet (denomination) level per line. In case that the player chooses to make a smaller bet, they will win a fixed amount, which is calculated by the x50,000 index.
The progressive jackpot is won when five of the Gold Wild Symbols are hit on payline one. This means that the symbols need to be landed crosswise across the middle row. It is collected starting from the initial amount of €100,000 by deductions from the bets. The total amount of the progressive jackpot is displayed right above the reels in the original game.
