Cherry launches Yggdrasil's progressive jackpot Joker Millions exclusively

30 April 2015
(PRESS RELEASE) -- Cherry has become the first operator to launch Yggdrasil Gaming’s first pooled progressive jackpot video slot, Joker Millions Progressive. The new slot is exclusively launched on Cherry’s flexible platform on the gaming sites Cherry Casino, SpilleAutomater, EuroSlots and Sveacasino.
Joker Millions is a 5x3 slot with 25 win multiplier, paid out from the left to the right. There are seven classic symbols and also a Joker symbol. Jackpot Spins are triggered when five joker symbols land, and if the screen is filled with 15 jokers the jackpot is awarded. Unlike most progressive jackpot slots, even the base game offers excitement with the freeze & re-spin with column multiplier feature. The jackpot starts at €100 000 but can quickly rise to €2-3m.
Fredrik Elmqvist, CEO Yggdrasil Gaming, commented: "Progressive jackpots are an excellent marketing tool for operators, but Joker Millions isn’t all about the jackpot. Most online jackpot slots are low variance, if you remove the actual jackpot from the equation, but Joker Millions also has very exciting elements in the base game. While players are waiting for that jackpot spin there are also mystery joker wins and freeze and re-spin functionality that will take players closer and closer to the Joker Millions. Our priority is always to produce engaging content and I’m sure Cherry’s players will love this new progressive jackpot.”
Marius Andersen, COO Cherry Malta, added: “Joker Millions will play an important role in our marketing strategy as the game is hugely exciting and we strongly believe it will be well received by our existing customers and help us acquire new players. Joker Millions is a game that also engages players outside the jackpot mode and that is important for us.”
