NextGen Gaming Amazon Idols Million Maker Video Slot Review

Ample treasure is waiting to be discovered in a lush green rainforest in Amazon Idols Million Maker. It’s a 5 reel, 25 payline video slot from NextGen Gaming that offers 3 progressive jackpot prizes as well as free spins, wheel bonuses and pick me rounds. Play on your desktop, tablet or mobile from between 25p and £62.50.

Watched over by giant green statues the reels are set against a tropical jungle backdrop. The lower value playing card symbols are joined by primitive necklaces and totems. The gen-encrusted gold circle is the top standard symbol offering awards of up to 20 times your bet per payline. Helping to create those winners is the Amazonian woman who is the wild. She substitutes for everything bar the scatter and pays 40 times your bet if you land 5 on a line.

Amazon Idol comes with 3 classic feature rounds- they’re triggered by landing 3 or more scatters on the same spin. 1 of the following extras is then awarded at random.

  • Amazonia Free Games feature – supplementing your free spins are 1 of 3 modifier extras that are in play throughout. They deliver an expanding wild on reel 3 complete with a 5x wild multiplier, expanding wilds on reels 2, 3 and 4 with a 2x wild multiplier or expanding wilds on all 5 reels.
  • Wheel of Amazonia feature – spin the wheel to win prizes of up to 35 times your stake. You could land a respin. Payouts from this second spin are doubled. You could also land the progressive jackpot prize.
  • Grid of Amazonia feature – this is the old favourite the pick me round. Choose from the 10 spaces on the grid to win cash prizes of up to 10 times your stake.

The Jackpot Idol symbols can appear in all 3 of the feature rounds and in the process deliver 1 of the Minor, Major or Mega Jackpots. The latter is life-changing as the minimum you’ll pocket, if you win, will be £1 million!

With its trio of classic features, Amazon Idol Million Maker feels a bit old school. The design has a slight retro flavour too. It all comes together rather nicely though. The bonus features offer plenty of potential and of course there’s the chance to land a potentially enormous jackpot prize. Even though winning a progressive jackpot is highly unlikely, you could still win 25,000 times your bet on each free spin with the 5x multiplier!

It’s not the most complex game you’ll see but for simple jungle adventure you won’t go too far wrong with Amazon Idol Million Maker. If you fancy a trip to the Amazon though, Secrets of the Amazon by Playtech and Amazon Queen by WMS are recommended.
