It’s hard not to like the Jackpot Giant who introduces Playtech’s volcano themed offering. Part cave-man part model, he’s cheerfully big and brilliantly bearded; he loves to play and his skimpy little leather skirt is just a little bit naughty. You’ll have to make your own mind up about the skirt, but the game itself is a winner every step of the way, with the giant setting volcanoes erupting to produce a cascade of golden coins across a tropical landscape.
Three rows across five reels deliver 50 paylines in a format that’s guaranteed to gladden the eye. Whether in terms of the progressive jackpot or the neat volcano-themed bonus game that sees the giant tossing coins into distant gold-filled craters, Jackpot Giant doesn’t disappoint.
Triggered by landing the statuesque volcano bonus symbols on reels one and five, the bonus game involves getting the giant to flip a coin into three of six smoking volcanoes. Three correct calls delivered an immediate cash return. If your luck’s, not in first time around there may be an extra coin toss to be had - he really is a friendly giant!
The unmistakable big and bold gold wild means that winning spins are never far away and the prospect of lining up five of them across the middle row for the progressive jackpot prize is an ever-present possibility.

About the Game
The objective of Jackpot Giant is to obtain winning symbol combinations by spinning the reels.
To play the game:
Line bets are chosen by clicking + and – below Line Bet to increase or decrease the amount.
The Jackpot Giant game is always played with 50 active paylines. The number of active paylines is fixed and cannot be changed by the player.
Total bet per game round = line bet X active paylines.
Clicking Spin spins the reels with the current selection of lines and line bets. During the reel spin the Spin button changes into Stop. Clicking Stop ends the spin animation and immediately displays the spin result.
Reels can also be spun using the Auto Play function. Mouse over the Auto Play button to display the list of options. Select the number of spins to be played automatically or choose Until Feature to spin until the Giant Bonus round is triggered, or if you win the Giant Jackpot.
Clicking on an option starts the Auto Play function. The Auto Play button changes into Stop during the Auto Play mode.
The Auto Play mode ends when the reels have been spun the number of times determined by the player; when the Giant Bonus round is triggered or the Giant Jackpot is won, if you have chosen Until Feature; or when you click Stop.
Clicking the Turbo Mode button switches on or off the Turbo Mode thus turning on or off some of the win animations and sounds, and making the reels spin faster or slower.
Wins are calculated according to the paytable. Line win = line bet X corresponding multiplier according to the paytable. Scatter win = total bet X corresponding multiplier according to the paytable. The paytable can be accessed via the Info page.
On a given payline, only the highest payline winning combination pays while simultaneous winnings on different paylines are accumulated.
In case of a winning spin, the Win field displays the accumulating winnings. The Win ticker can be stopped by clicking anywhere on the screen to display the total win amount immediately.
Payline wins and the total win are also displayed on the strip located at the bottom of the reels or the game window.
It’s not everyone’s preferred format, but three rows rather than four give a little more scope for the game’s graphics to go large - and jackpot Giant is a great example of what can be achieved in that respect: it is an undeniably stunning looking game.
The giant’s hand full of gold provides a scatter symbol whilst the low value J, Q, K and A low value symbols are visually pleasing as 3D rough cut rock sculptures. In fact the overall 3d look of the game is one of its prime appeals. The tropical azure blue sky behind the symbols complete with an occasional flock of passing birds is masterful, and along with the cloud-shrouded peaks of distant mountain tops a little piece of tropical paradise is conjured up. And who doesn’t enjoy an eruption of gold coins every now and then?
Playtech’s familiar auto play and turbo mode are incorporated and with line bets starting at just £0.01 there are plenty of good reasons to check out Jackpot Giant besides the giant’s cheeky choice of costume.
