“Major Millions” is recruiting all players willing to enlist in this two-front war.
The proverbial G.I. Bill in this game can be quite generous in whichever of the two formats are preferred: standard three -reel fruit slots (with up to three paylines and a maximum entry bet of 3 coins), or the five-reel “progressive” slot, maximum five-coin setup with a plethora of very loosely armed forces-inspired shapes replacing the traditional fruits, bars, and 7’s (with up to fifteen paylines).
In the traditional format, anywhere between 2 and 400 coins can be won (one coin being worth a dollar), while the progressive can pay between 2 and 8000 for the most luck-endowed soldiers of fortune.
Scatter symbols and wild “Major Millions” symbols appear in this game to help achieve prosperity, the former appearing in the progressive version and allowing for a 50x sum multiplier from each of the three achievable scatter symbols.
The military sound effects and themes may tickle the fancy of super-patriots who proudly lionize their predecessors with plastic soldiers as well as veterans just trying to cash in on their post-traumatic stress, but the name “Major Millions” is a bit of a misnomer, as a million dollar-sum isn’t so easily acquired (certainly not in a single game) and really only refers to the largesse of the company behind it (Microgaming in this case) that only rewards uncanny luck (not courageous acts of heroism). Also, this game is only available via download, so even fewer people can acknowledge your pain as you further recede from the online community (though they may certainly share it).
