The MegaJackpot can be won in both the base game and the free spins bonus round, the jackpot is triggered by landing 4 of the Mega Jackpot symbols on the middle reel.
The bet size has a direct relationship with the chance of the Jackpot being triggered, so the higher your bet the higher your chance of winning the MegaJackpots progressive, let’s not kid ourselves though, at any bet size the chance will be incredibly small but you never know!
On every non-winning spin of the progressive jackpot there is also a behind the scenes second chance spin which can actually trigger the progressive jackpot, again this is related to bet size too.
So in total, there are 3 ways to win the MegaJackpot, base game 4 jackpot scatters, free spins 4 jackpot scatters, and a second chance behind the scenes awarded jackpot.
MegaJackpots Return to Player (RTP)
All players should be aware that when they are playing a Progressive pooled Jackpot slot then a portion of your bet goes towards funding the Jackpot itself (the money has to come from somewhere!) as such the RTP (Return To Player) tends to be quite poor for these kinds of slots, with a percentage of the slots RTP being the Jackpot itself.
IGT has no actual figure published for this slots RTP, as it will vary depending on what the current jackpot total is, they do however list two examples to show how the RTP increases as the Jackpot rises.
- Example Jackpot Total £500,000 Long-term expected RTP – 90.99%
- Example Jackpot Total £1,000,000 Long-term expected RTP – 92.97%
It’s worth noting that the odds of winning the jackpot do not vary based on the jackpot total, they do however increase by betting higher stakes.
