The five-reel three-row game has 15 fixed pay lines that pay from the left. For most of the reels the scatters are the only symbols that pay regardless of the position they are in.

The betting is set at 15 coins for a spin. Coin value starts from 0.2 and maximum coin size that can fetch you a jackpot is 3.

The game can be played in Expert mode where the autoplay feature can be used. The meter for the progressive jackpot game is shown on the screen top.

For a win in the base game, you have to land three of the same symbols in the first 3 reels.

The win size increases, if you land more than 3 symbols. For instance, if you land 3 of the symbols, you can get 15 coins but for 5 symbols the winning amount is 1000 coins.

Symbols

Unlike other pokies where the low value symbols are card numbers, the symbols in Major Millions are all military based.

The game logo is a wild symbol that can substitute for all the regular symbols and is also the icon with highest payout.

The symbols in the game include medals, bar ammunition, war boat, war plane, tank, top secret files, general, major cap and binoculars.

While there are plenty of scatter coins, they do not activate bonus features. Instead they pay on any position they are found on the reels.

Features

Major Millions does not have many exciting features other than the scatter and wilds, but the promise of jackpot is in itself a big lure for players. 

Wilds

The Major Millions logo forms the wild symbol. The wild symbol gives several benefits to players.

It can substitute for all other symbols except the scatter symbol and form winning combo. When your winning line has the wild symbol, the winning amount is tripled.

For three of the wild symbols in a single pay line, you can get 80 coins. Four of the wilds will fetch 280 coins and five on the first of the 14 pay lines fetches the jackpot, which is 8,000 coins.

If you land wilds in the 15 line, a huge progressive jackpot can be won to the tune of several hundred thousand.

Scatter

The explosion icon with scatter written inside it is the scatter symbol.

The symbol can fetch a win for you wherever they land on the reels. However, for cash rewards you have to land a minimum of three scatters.

The scatter wins you make are added to the other pay line winnings. The scatter win is multiplied by the total credits you had wagered on the spin.

Jackpot

For landing the jackpot in Major Millions, you have to land 5 of the wilds on the 15th payline.

The jackpot is 8,000 x of your bet amount, which can turn out to be 24000, if you use max bet amount. 

However, you need to remember that for winning progressive jackpot you have to bet the maximum value.

Conclusion and RTP

Major Millions, with its progressive jackpot winnings, is an enjoyable game to play. The RTP for the game is 89.37%.

When you use the maximum bet option, you qualify for a whopping win. The wild symbol is the only feature that makes this game interesting to play.

With a huge progressive jackpot prize to win, the pokie is a game that New Zealand players will love to indulge in.
