Major Millions was first launched by Microgaming as a 3-reels online pokie with a progressive jackpot. The pokie had the conventional symbols like sevens, bars and cherries. The only thematic symbol was the Major Millions logo that awarded the jackpot payout. Later Microgaming launched Major Millions as a 5-reels video pokie and networked it to the same progressive jackpot. Major Millions video pokie had several thematic symbols based on the army. These included cannon, airplane, binoculars, dynamite, army cap, medals and the major himself. As in the classic version, the Major Millions logo is the wild symbol. The video pokie also has an exploding scatter symbol that awards payouts multiplied by the total bet. Major Millions made history in 2002 when it became the first online progressive pokie to pay out more than a million credits. Major Millions is also available at Australian mobile casinos.
How Major Millions Is Hit
The video pokie version of Major Millions has 15 paylines and a fixed coin size of 0.20. You can play between 1 and 15 coins. However, if you want to play for the progressive jackpot, you must play 15 coins. This works out to 3.00 credits per spin. Under these conditions you will hit the progressive jackpot if you land five Major Millions logos on the 15th payline. Since the classic pokie version is networked to the same progressive jackpot, you have to wager 3.00 credits per spin here as well. This version has 3 paylines, and the coin size here is set at 1.00. You must wager 3 coins, so as to make 3.00 credits, to play for the progressive jackpot. In this case you will hit the progressive jackpot if you land three Major Millions logos on the 3rd payline. If you cover any other payline with the Major Millions logos in either version of the online pokie, you will have to be satisfied with a fixed payout. It does not matter on which version of the progressive pokie you wager, because both have equal chances of hitting the jackpot.
