Jackpot Giant is a new Playtech slot which I gave a test run last night. It is a good looking video slot that has 5 reels and 50 paylines. The symbols and the reels almost have a 3D effect where they look like they are lifted off of the background which consists of a nice green pasture, large prehistoric looking boulders, mountains and a volcano in the background. I can’t forget to note the bright blue sky because the color combination of the slot is very eye appealing.
The symbols include a couple different views of the Giant, yellow, blue, red gems and the lower symbols consist of a J, Q, K and an A. There is a Volcano Bonus symbol, a scatter symbol that is the Giant’s hand which is full of gold coins and a large Gold Wild symbol.
Giant Bonus Feature:
I hit the giant bonus a couple of times while spinning last night. This happened when the Volcano Bonus symbol landed in my reel one and my reel 5 at the same time. I was brought to a screen that showed the Giant standing with six volcanoes. I was allowed to choose three of the volcanoes in hopes of winning a cash prize. The animation was pretty entertaining because after i chose a volcano, the giant tossed a gold coin into it and my prize was then revealed.
Jackpot Giant is tied to a progressive jackpot. Players have a chance to hit the progressive jackpot if and when 5 gold wild symbols land in a winning payline. Of course one would have to bet the maximum to qualify for the progressive jackpot if all 5 bonus symbols landed in the reels … and that’s a big “if”. Obviously, I was not a progressive jackpot winner last night. I might have quit my day job if that were the case. Better luck next time I suppose. I will hope for better luck because I am sure I will play this slot again from time to time.
