What is this mobile slot about?
The Jackpot Raiders slot dares you to enter a jungle full of lost cities and jackpot treasures, but will you be able to navigate these complicated rivers?
Do us a favour. Before you read this Jackpot Raiders slot review, read all about the features below. Because it looks a little complicated, and honestly, it kinda is.
But, at the end of the day, Jackpot Raiders is a 5 x3 reel video slot with wilds, scatters, 2 free spin bonuses with multiplier and a click me bonus.
It’s not features you haven’t seen before, but they all tie in so strangely together that it takes a couple of games tries to understand them all. That said if you’ve ever played the Yggdrasil Holmes and Stolen Stones slot game, you’ll get a general idea here.
You need to catch one of the two free spin bonus to trigger the jackpots
This Jackpot Raiders slot has two free spin features. The jackpot free spins are the one you’ll catch more often than not with 3 scatters.
This has a 3x multiplier and you get one gem on a reel. 5 gems on a reel, trigger one of the jackpots above, each seeding from 40 to 15,000 in cash.
However, what you want to trigger is the Sunken City free spins, where you get 10 spins with a 10x multiplier, and all the reels start with one gem, making it all the more likely you’ll trigger the jackpots.
It’s a nice addition that we don’t get even in the Ozwin’s Jackpots slot which has similar Yggdrasil game DNA.
Jackpot Raiders is a fun, easy to play progressive
Yes, you have to spin a mini compass to know which of the two bonus features you’ll get. Yes, you need to play the click me game multiple times to catch the Sunken City Free Spins.
Yes, you even have to then decide how risky you want to play those click me games to figure out which prizes you are going to get, and you get multiple levels and two characters to play.
But as long as you keep your eyes on the prize (those 4 jackpots) this Jackpot Raiders slot machine gets curiously simple. You want to catch relics in the Treasure Hunt or Treasure Chest bonus games, so you get the better free spins, but any free spins is your goal.
However, this is a low variance local progressive jackpot, meaning, overall, you can get a fair amount of spins in before your budget runs out, as long as you are careful with your bets.

In-game bonus features
The Compass and the Scatter: The Compass is the scatter symbols. When you get 3 or more you activate the compass and win either the 10 jackpot free spins or the Treasure Hunt Bonus game.
You can also find it in the Pick and Click Chest game.
The Treasure Chest Bonus: Get 2 scatters on the screen and you trigger the pick and click chest game. You may randomly win:
- 20, 40, 80 coins
- 10 Jackpot Free Spins
- Treasure Hunt Bonus game
- 1 random Map towards your Map collection
Map collection and Jackpot free spins: There are five map symbols you can collect the Summit Shrine, the Highland Gate, the Jungle Ruins, the Desert Tomb and the Templar Grave.
Each Map only appears on the reels it’s on – so Summit Shrine on reel 1 and Templar Grave on reel 5 etc… You can also collect maps in the treasure chest bonus and the treasure hunt bonus.
When 5 identical Maps are collected you are then awarded 10 Jackpot Free Spins with 1 starting gem towards that reel’s Jackpot collection and a 3x multiplier.
Sunken City Free Spins: you get 10 free spins with a 10x multiplier when you collect 5 relics. These are only found in the Treasure Hunt Bonus Game.
The Treasure Hunt Bonus Game: triggered from the compass feature with 3 scatters.
You then get to play as Sam or Bear. Sam gives you better prizes when she opens a chest but she is more likely to fail her attempt and gets no prize. Bear on the other hand has a higher chance of getting to the prize but gets less from each chest he opens.
Once you’ve chosen your character, you have 3 lives to cross three jungles. Each successful crossing will let you open a treasure chest with prizes – and the crossing each have difficulty levels.
- Safe: 50 – 340 coins, Low chance of Map and Relic
- Risky: 240 – 1200 coins, Medium chance of Map and Relic
- Very Risky: 350 – 1800 coins, Highest chance of Map and Relic
Don’t forget, the cash is nice, but the Relics are the real prize.
How to win the jackpot: collecting 5 gems of the same colour on one reel during the Jackpot Raiders bonus games wins you the corresponding jackpot.
The seeds levels are:
- Forgotten Jackpot – €$£40
- Rare Jackpot – €$£200
- Mythical Jackpot – €$£600
- Ancient Jackpot – €$£1,500
- Legendary Jackpot – €$£15,000
These grow well beyond that, but as these are local progressive jackpots they change dramatically casino to casino.
There’s a lot going on in this Jackpot Raiders slot on mobile, and it may take you entering these jungles on multiple occasions to get all the feature and how to collect what.
But ultimately, you are just playing to get those free spins and collect as many gems as possible to trigger one of five jackpots.
The fun aspect is that you have lots of pretty scenarios and mini-games to keep you onboard and playing, even if it may have one too many bonus features for those who love the simplicity of real money jackpot games like the Hall of Gods slot or Divine Fortune machine.
Still, this is just the kind of Yggdrasil jackpot slot fans of this studio will love.
