Amazon Idols: Million Maker House review
NextGen has created a massive jackpot game with Amazon Idols: Million Maker! As the name of the game suggests, you get a chance to win a massive £1,000,000 in the progressive jackpot!
Gameplay is straightforward in this slot machine, but understanding how you can traverse the deep, magical jungles of Amazonia to get to that hidden treasure may take some time.
So, before you begin your journey into this magical land of the Amazon, take the time to read our review!
To begin this game, you simply have to select your betting amount and then click on the Spin button. There is a large round icon on the right of the reelscape that acts as the bet-setter, the Spin button and even the game menu.
Amazon Idols: Million Maker has a very high RTP of 97.52% and is also an extremely volatile game. The high RTP means that the odds are better, but the high volatility means that you won’t get those wins easily.
Because of this, the best strategy to adopt is to make your bets at an amount that you can sustain over a large number of spins – at least 150 to 200 spins. Don’t expect to win big in just a few spins – unless you are extremely lucky! After all, it’s a million pounds at stake!
To win, you need to land 3 identical symbols on the paylines from left to right. The low value symbols – the 9, 10, J, Q, K and A – will give you the lowest wins. The high value symbols – Amazonian artefacts – will give you the bigger wins. The highest value symbol – the Gold Coin – will give you the biggest wins (20x your bet if you land 5 across the paylines).
Additional Game Features
To be able to target those progressive jackpots that give you chance to win that mega prize, you need to be able to activate the additional game features in Amazon Idols: Million Maker.
The stunning Amazonian woman is your Wild, and if she lands on the reels, then she will substitute all other symbols. Well, except for the Jackpot Idol symbol and the Scatter. What she does is increase your chances of landing winning combinations. And if you are lucky enough to land 5 Wilds, you end up making 40x your bet!
The Amazon Idols symbol is the Scatter, and when 3 or more of it land on the reels, you activate one of 3 bonus games, which will be randomly chosen. You also win 2x, 20x or even 50x your bet, depending on whether you land 3, 4 or 5 Scatters across the reels.
Bonus Feature 1 – Amazonia Free Games
If you activate the Amazonia Free Games feature, then you are awarded 3 Free Spins. Before the free spins begin, you have the choose between the following 3 features:
- Expanding Wild on third reel, and all wins get a 5x multiplier
- Expanding Wild on second, third and fourth reels, plus a 2x multiplier
- Expanding Wild on all five reels but no multipliers.
If you land more Scatters during this feature, then you can re-trigger the free spins. You get a maximum of 20 free spins in a round. During this round, you can also see a new symbol – the Jackpot Idols.
- 3 Jackpot Idols win you the Minor Jackpot,
- 4 Jackpot Idols win you the Major Jackpot, and
- 5 Jackpot Idols win you the Mega Jackpot.
Bonus Feature 2 – Wheel of Amazonia
If this is the bonus feature you are given, then you get a chance to win as much as 35x your win or even land any one of the 3 Jackpots. There is yet another new symbol that appears in this bonus game – the Spin Again symbol. And if you land this symbol, you get an extra spin to get a chance at those Jackpots and multipliers again. However, in the extra spin, multipliers are doubled, so you can win 70x your bet!
Bonus Feature 3 – Grid of Amazonia
This third feature shows a game grid that shows numerous options, out of which you need to select 10. Each selection has the potential to reveal as much as 5x your bet, a Jackpot Idol or even a Mega-Pick, which reveals 5 positions on the Grid.
To win the Minor Jackpot, you should select 3 Jackpot Idols. To win the Major Jackpot, you should select 4 Jackpot Idols, and for the Mega Jackpot, you need 5 of these symbols.
NextGen’s Amazon Idols: Million Maker is a beautifully designed game, using a South American Amazonian theme. In the background, you see the dimly lit Amazon Jungle, with idols peeping through thick foliage.
The reelscape shows you high-value symbols that are reflective of the riches hidden in this jungle. The low-value symbols, however, don’t really incorporate the theme of the game.
Overall, the game’s graphics, sounds and animations are fantastic and make playing an immersive experience!
Amazon Idols: Million Maker is definitely a game that you should try, especially if you enjoy playing fast-paced, high-stakes games that have the potential to hit some serious jackpot.
