The First Major Millions Jackpot of 2018 Creates Another Slots MillionairePublished February 19, 2018 by Ivan P
Although the exact number is yet to be confirmed, a lucky winner may have unlocked the second-biggest Major Millions progressive jackpot in the game's history.
It has come to our attention that the very first progressive jackpot on Microgaming's Major Millions slot in 2018 was won just a couple of days ago. Although we're still awaiting the information on where the win took place and who the lucky player is, he or she took home in excess of $1.8 million for a truly life-changing score.
The Second-Biggest Jackpot to Date?
The exact number is still to be confirmed, but if the reports are correct, the lucky winner got around $1,860,000, which would make this the second-biggest jackpot to be awarded by the Major Millions slot. The biggest win recorded to date happened in May, 2017, when the jackpot ticker stopped slightly shy of $2 million, awarding $1,945,884.
However, even if the number turns out to be slightly lower, we're confident the winner (whoever he or she might be) won't be overly concerned with stats and records and will be thrilled to add well over a million to their bank account.
Classic & Modern Slot Variations
Apart from the big progressive jackpot, which awards an average of $610,000, Major Millions is unique because it offers two different slot variations - a classic one, featuring just three reels and three paylines, and a modern one with 15 paylines across the standard 5x3 grid.
Players are free to choose their preferred variation as this doesn't influence the chance of winning the jackpot. On the classic Major Millions slot, players need to land three wild symbols on the third payline to unlock the progressive jackpot. On the video slot variation, the jackpot is won by landing a combination of five wilds on the 15th payline.
Although Major Millions might not be as popular as some other progressive slots by Microgaming, especially their Mega Moolah and Mega Moolah Isis games, there are still many players out there who like their slots simple and straightforward. With Major Millions, what you see is what you get, and you know exactly what needs to happen to win the jackpot. For some, this beats any elaborate graphics and complex bonus features every day of the week, as evident from the constantly growing progressive jackpot pool.
