Joker Millions is one of two global progressive jackpot games in the Malta-based developer’s portfolio and one of their most popular slot machines. Launched in 2015, Joker Millions is a fruit machine featuring 5 reels, 25 paylines and a set of traditional symbols including bells, sevens and cherries.
The slot benefits from the Freeze and Respin feature providing you with extra chances of winning. As long as new winning symbols appear, you are granted respins with symbols contributing to wins kept in place. Furthermore, the game offers up to 5x multipliers and the Jackpot Spin feature. During it, you can hit the progressive jackpot if you cover the grid by Joker symbols.
So far, the Yggdrasil progressive jackpot slots have paid out a total of €26.9 million.
CEO at Yggdrasil Fredrik Elmqvist said that Joker Millions was their first progressive slot. According to him, the game is beloved by both operators and players.
“With more operators continuing to join the Yggdrasil network, the jackpot will be building up again quickly,” Elmqvist concluded.
