X Factor Jackpot is an online slot title that was developed by Ash Gaming and features 5 reels and 20 pay line for players to wager on. This title is based on the hit television show where vocalists try to impress a panel of judges in order to become pop stars. This title also features voice over work from Peter Dickson, a popular contestant on the show. The title features free spins, sticky wilds and a progressive jackpot that emulates the public voting that takes place on the show.
The X Factor Jackpot Pay Symbols
X Factor Jackpot features 8 standard symbols and one wild. The symbols award a winning combination for three or more matching icons that land on an active pay line. The symbols start in value with a 10, a Jack, a queen, a King and an Ace, for instance, these symbols can also be found in a lot of Canadian online casino slots. These symbols award players between 4 and 100 coins, depending on whether you land 3, 4 or 5 matching symbols in this game. The symbols you want to land are the three picture symbols. There is a male vocalist, a female vocalist and a pop star silhouette.
The silhouette is worth between 30 and 500 coins. The male vocalist is worth between 50 and 1000 coins. The female vocalist is worth the highest pay out. She is worth between 70 and 1500 coins. The X factor wild symbol does not just substitute its value for any value required to complete a winning combination. It also offers a payout for three or more matching symbols on an active pay line. 3 of the wild symbols will pay 100 coins, 4 are worth 1000 and 5 will pay out 10 000 coins.
The X Factor Jackpot Free Spins Bonus
The CD icon is the free spins trigger symbol in X Factor Jackpot. When the free spins CD symbol appears on reels 2, 4 and 5 the free spins bonus will trigger. Each of the free spins symbols will reveal a certain amount of free spins. These are added up and awarded to the player to take immediately. During the free spins round, the X Factor Jackpot sticky wilds feature will trigger. The X Factor X will fly across the reels and drop wilds randomly on screen. Wherever the wilds drop, they will stick. The wilds will remain in place for the duration of the free spins bonus round.
The X Factor Jackpot Pick Me Bonus
The orange hued microphone symbol will trigger the X Factor Jackpot Pick Me bonus feature. When the microphone symbol appears on the middle reel the Pick Me bonus feature activates and takes the player to a new screen. Here the player must pick one of three X Factor Icons that will either reveal cash prizes or one of the stars of the X Factor television show.
Progressive Jackpot Bonus
The X Factor Jackpot Progressive Jackpot feature is what makes X Factor Jackpot different from the original X Factor slot that was released. The Progressive Jackpot is won by Phone Votes, just like the X Factor television show. After each week, phone votes are awarded and the amounts of votes determine the jackpot level. 4 phone votes will award the Bronze Jackpot, 5 phone votes will award the Silver Jackpot and 6 phone votes will award the Gold Jackpot.
