Major Millions

Major Millions

Major Millions is part of the Microgaming Progressive Network like Mega Moolah and offers players the chance to win some enormous payouts, often in the millions of dollars.  The 5-reel pokie came online in 2004 and has since become one of the most well known online slot games.

How To Play

Major Millions is a relatively straightforward 5-reel pokie with no bonus rounds or free spin features.  It offers 5 paylines with a fixed coin size of $0.20.  Only 1 coin can be used, but players can choose how many paylines they play, so the range of wager is between $0.20 – $3.00.  Wins pay from left to right, except the scatter symbol  which pays anywhere on the reels

Symbols and Paylines

  • Major Millions Progressive symbol is wild and substitutes for all other symbols
  • Wild acts as a multiplier and triples any win
  • 5x wild symbol on payline 15 = unlimited progressive jackpot
  • 5x wild symbol on paylines 1 -14 = 8000 coins
  • Scatter symbol wins added to payline wins
  • Scatter symbol wins are multiplied by total number of credits staked

Graphics and Sounds

Major Millions features a comic, Colonel Blimp-like military man as the central character.  The game is accompanied by military marching band music and a cheering crowd ( while each symbol has its own sound effect that accompanies a win.  The reel symbols include tanks, medals, warships, etc., but the colours and overall design concept are bright and exaggerated, and intended to amuse, so anyone expecting a CGI-inspired action-packed Call of Duty-style look, or realistic military images, will likely be disappointed.


The major attraction of Major Millions is of course the possibility of winning an enormous progressive jackpot, and while this is far from an everyday occurrence it is won on average every 7 months.  The progressive jackpot starts at $250,000 and grows as the game is played anywhere in the world (a fraction of each losing spin on every game contributing to the prize pool).

The average jackpot size is about $400,000 – $500,000, although recent Major Millions jackpot wins have included payouts of over $1.7 million in February 2012, and one of over $1.8 million in May 2012.

You win the progressive jackpot by lining 5 wild symbols on the 15th payline and you’ll need to be playing the max no of coins and paylines in order to win the jackpot

Special Features

As a progressive jackpot game, it is worth bearing in mind that the payout percentages on Major Millions are lower in comparison to standard 5-reel video pokie (87% as compared to around 95%), but for many the possibility of winning a truly enormous jackpot more than makes up for this.

Major Million’s special features include a jackpot meter which shows how much the jackpot is worth at any time, wild and scatter symbols and an expert or auto play feature
