Everybody’s Jackpot is a nicely designed online slot from Playtech which uses a television game show as it’s theme. Despite only having a 3 x 3 set of reels the game also manages to feature a free spins round and it offers a large progressive jackpot for the luckiest players.
When you first load up the game you’ll be treated to the beginning of a game show – the host and hostess are introduced to the audience by a booming voiceover along with several winners of the Everybody’s Jackpot show.
This slot features just three sets of reels and eight paylines which may not seem all that many to those familiar with five reels and almost endless ways to win The game is set inside a television studio with the reels to the left and our foxy hostess next to the progressive jackpot on the right hand side.
The main symbols are money-relayed and include a gold necklace, a gold watch, gold bars, the host and the hostess. Minor symbols are Q, K and A and the special symbols are a big green ‘Wild’ and an ‘Everybody’s Jackpot’ scatter.
Free spins may be unusual in a three reel slot but they’re here nonetheless and you’ll need to land three of the scatter symbols to trigger them.
There’s no multiplier here unfortunately but the free spins round is the only time when the wild symbol appears; it only pops up on the middle reel but it can be pretty profitable on a 3 x 3 reel setup.
More spins can be won from this bonus game indefinitely.
This is perhaps the game’s main feature and it’s designed so that several people can benefit from the jackpot at the same time. It’s a randomly won prize and this is how it works:
- The player who triggers the win will receive 70% of the prize fund.
- 15% of the fund is allocated to all other qualifying players
- 15% of the fund is allocated to all players who have qualified during the last 24 hours but proportionally to the total amount they have bet.
Players qualify by spending the minimum sum on the game within the previous 24 hours; that amount changes and is shown on the jackpot machine in the main game.
Don’t let the fact that this is a mere three reel slot put you off; it’s fun and very high quality with a free spins round plus the chance to win a massive progressive jackpot. The extra good news it that you don’t even have to be the one to trigger the jackpot, you just have to qualify and then hope that someone else wins.
