Game description

Jackpot Express (Yggdrasil)

Jackpot Express (Yggdrasil)The use of gambling as a theme on slot games is not an entirely new idea, and several developers have already embraced it.

Yggdrasil has borrowed a leaf from such slots, but they have done it in a different way, which makes it quite interesting.

I got an opportunity to try out their latest slot, named Jackpot Express, and here is my unbiased review:

Game Set-Up

The developed used 5x3 reels and a total of 20 lines for this slot.

Jackpot Express offers some progressive jackpots that boost your payout.

For its features, there are some wilds, free spins (several choices) as well as bonus games.

Betting and Prizes

This game seems to target all levels of players, and it’s evidenced by the amount allowed per spin.

To get the reels going, you will need as little as $0.20 per spin. If you are a risk-taker who only goes for the big catch, Jackpot Express will allow you to use as much as $400 per spin.

Jackpot Express offers a top payout of 2,175x the stake. This is a very good amount considering that the risk involved is minimal.

In addition to its low-medium volatility, Yggdrasil has included progressive jackpots as well.

On its own, the slot can only manage an RTP of 91.20%, while in the progressive jackpots mode, up to 96.20% s possible.

And talking of progressive jackpots, Jackpot Express offers three of them. They come with different value, starting from a few thousand, to over $100,000. These three are Major, Side and Minor.

Jackpot Express Slot Features

The Wild Logo is among the usual features that are found on this slot.  It’s a feature that you can use to form its own wins, which can in return deliver a prize of 12.5x total stake per line.

However, you will appreciate the Wild more when used as a substitute for the regular symbols.

The other symbol found on this slot is the scatter. It comes in the icon of a Wheel of Fortune style action. If you manage to land 3+ of this scatter symbol, you will be able to trigger one of the 3 available free spins variants.

Each free spins version comes with 10 free spins; the only notable difference is the additional features that vary with each variant.

The Wheel of Fortune is the same feature that you will use to trigger the progressive jackpot.  After you successfully trigger it, the feature will be able to use its own wheel for further spinning.

Theme & Design

Yggdrasil is known for high-quality graphics, and they have combined these with the Art Deco style that was common in the early 20th century, to create an excellent slot game.

Even with great visuals, Yggdrasil has gone an extra mile to offer an interesting riverboat casino theme, which is totally original.

The symbols come in different icons that include card suits, some gamblers and ladies from the boat, among others.


Jackpot Express is one of the most interesting slots that I have played from Yggdrasil. If you love progressive jackpots, this is a slot that you must consider trying.

I love the usual high-end graphics that are synonymous with Yggdrasil, alongside the great payouts that are available.
