Joker Millions launched as first progressive slot from Swedish games developer.
 The Cherry online gambling group has become the first operator to debut Yggdrasil Gaming’s pooled progressive jackpot video slot, Joker Millions.
The new slot has exclusively launched on Cherry’s flexible platform on the gaming sites,, and, a spokesman revealed Thursday.
Joker Millions is a 5×3 slot with 25x 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 5 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 a freeze & re-spin with column multiplier feature. The jackpot starts at Euro 100 000 but can rise to Euro 2-3 million.
Fredrik Elmqvist, CEO Yggdrasil Gaming, said in a press release:
"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 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."
