Jackpot Giant Slot by Playtech – Review & Free Play Demo

Looking to win big without the hefty spins price tag? Look no further than Jackpot Giant slot, the Playtech powered progressive slot with huge win potential!

Packed with comical animations, this fun-filled slot aims to take players back to the stone age where the discovery of volcanoes could see major cash erupting into one’s bankroll!

Despite its lack of bonus elements, Jackpot Giant is as popular today as the day it launched back in 2014 and for one reason only – the progressive jackpot!

Playtech, the folks behind the popular Age of the Gods slot franchise, mega-movie blockbuster titles (Gladiator), iconic sportsmen (Frankie Dettori) and DC Comic Book titles; Aquaman, Batman, Batman v Superman and Green Lantern to name a few, are renowned for delivering life-changing sums of money through networked slots only. Unlike the others, this one doesn’t require you to increase the bets to high roller standards to stand a chance of winning! Typical slots on the Playtech network claim that the higher your bet, the more chance you have of triggering the jackpot, but you’ll find nothing of the sort here.

 Jackpot Giant Slot Bets and Pays

All symbols are in-keeping with the theme, so you’ll find dazzling gemstones of many different colours, the usual card symbols of J, Q, K and A, only in rock 3D form and the star of the show himself; the legend who can deliver an ultimate win on any spin!

The most valuable symbol is the wild; a five-of-a-kind combination will award a 50,000 coin pay-out! Unless, that five-of-a-kind combo just happens to fall on win line 1, because that’s how you trigger the eye-popping progressive jackpot! Oh, but you’ll need to be playing max stakes to stand any chance of winning this life-changing sum!

The hand of the giant with stacks of golden coins and the pink crystals both award up to 500 coins. The value of those coins wins will be determined by the value of your bet.

And talking of bets, minimum stakes are just 50p while the maximum is just £4! Blue and orange crystals award up to 300 coins, the giant in volcano and forest settings award up to 100 and 80 coins respectively while remaining rock values pay between 40 and 60 coins for a full win line of matching symbols.

Jackpot Giant Slot Features

Wild symbols have two jobs in Jackpot Giant. First is to substitute for all other base game symbols (bar scatter) to help achieve winning combinations. This is the key to landing that ever-growing progressive jackpot!

There is but the one feature to benefit from which is rather fitting considering this slot machine is styled on a pre-historic, stone age era where there was very little to do!

The giant bonus is awarded on the presence of the volcano scatter on reels 1 and 5. Upon your screen will be six massive volcanoes, only these ones are packed with cash, not lava!

The giant will proceed to cause an earthquake and in turn, the volcanoes will erupt cash into your bankroll. But you do get some involvement because he only acts when you decide on which three to explode!

Keep an eye on the bearded gent; he can award all six prizes in one fell swoop if he feels like it!

Control Panel

Information, the fixed win lines, line bet adjuster, wins, total bet, autoplay, turbo mode and manual spin all sit perfectly beneath the reels.

The current progressive will be ticking away nicely to the top of the machine and unless it is highlighted in gold, you’ll not be eligible to win it! To highlight that eye-popping sum, increase your bet to the maximum of £4 per spin.

Auto spin offers a more relaxed style of play with up to 99 spins playing out at your chosen stake automatically. Everything else is self-explanatory!

What’s the Verdict?

Rolling green hills, bright blue skies and fluffy white clouds await – it’s almost as if we’ve stepped into a new dimension because we very rarely get to see such sights here in the UK!

Everything has been designed to tie-in with the theme; even the control panel buttons are carved into stone. Wins are frequently flowing, but don’t expect them to be huge. The variance of Jackpot Giant is medium to low, which means small prizes are a regular feature, but the larger ones like to make you work for the money!

Usually, having the one feature is not enough to keep players coming back for more, but it’s the progressive that’s the main attraction.

Naturally, to win life-changing sums of money, one usually has to stake big to win big, but £4 per spin offers great value for money! Be wary of that turbo button folks, as those reels spin a lot quicker than normal and you know what that means? Your bankroll gets eaten away at quicker too! He may be big and fierce-looking, but he’s the friendliest giant to ever exist and you can take him out and about with you on mobile too!

It takes on average 30-weeks for the jackpot to go, but that hasn’t stopped it going on for almost 3-years to reach a pot of over £9.4 million before it was won!

Jackpot Giant slot is simple to play. It offers nothing that could be considered as complicated nor does it come with a high roller price tag, making it perfect for all slots players, including those looking to make the most out of their small bankroll!
