Spin the reels and take part in this brand new, 8 line slot game extravaganza, where – if one person hits the jackpot - everyone gets their share. Jump in and join the jackpot glory with Everybody’s Jackpot.
Playtech’s Everybody’s Jackpot begins with a wonderful animation sequence that puts casual console games on notice. Playtech has already conquered the online gambling world, and animated openings like this demonstrate that the software company is not finished extending their dominance. It wouldn’t be surprising to see Playtech dip its toes into mainstream gaming within the next decade, and if Everybody’s Jackpot is any indication, that venture will be wildly successful.
The slot is designed around a TV game show theme, featuring a toothy-grinned host and his redheaded, beautiful assistant. Instead of the typical reels format, Everybody’s Jackpot uses a unique 3x3 grid as the slot’s primary engine. This willingness to test the boundaries of the traditional slot machine is one of the reasons the company has been so triumphant over the last ten years.
There are eight paylines on the board, and the grid is populated with symbols like golden necklaces, watches, dollar rolls, and gleaming gold bars. The game logo acts as the Scatter, and the Wild symbol is clearly identified in-game with the word “wild.” As usual, the Wild can be used to substitute for any other symbols in the game except for the Scatter. Speaking of the Scatter, players can access winning multipliers whenever they achieve two or more of them on the grid. The more Scatters appear on the board in a single spin, the higher your multiplier goes. Three or more also triggers the game’s free spins round.
The Progressive Jackpot
This is where Everybody’s Jackpot earns its name. Playtech has put some innovative thought into the construction of this one, and it makes this game stand out from the many hundreds of slots in their library. The progressive jackpot pays out at random with the lion’s share of the winnings going to the player who triggered it. The player gets 70 percent, but half of the remaining jackpot is distributed to everyone else playing the slot at the same time. The final 15 percent goes to all the other qualifying players, which is to say anyone who has played in the last 24 hours.
You don’t have to wait around for the game’s random progressive jackpot to score a big win out of the game. The standard jackpot is won by lining up three instances of the game’s male host, a payout worth 250 coins. That’s on the low side when it comes to online slot machines, but it isn’t bad when you consider the additional payouts from the progressive jackpot. The female host is worth 150 coins when the player gets three in a row.
There aren’t enough positive adjectives in the English language to fully demonstrate how excellent Everybody’s Jackpot really is. It’s one of those games you must play for yourself to understand. Even if you’re turned off by the game-show theme, the slot has enough going on that you won’t notice it after a few minutes. Besides, they incorporate the theme so well that it’s hard to imagine too many people complaining. The free-for-all progressive jackpot is a stroke of genius. Give this one a whirl at your earliest convenience.
