Loot’EnKhamun and the Dead Sea Scrolls jackpot
Loot’EnKhamun and the Dead Sea Scrolls takes players deep into an Egyptian tomb with blazing torches aglow on the wall. The slot interface features five columns and three rows filled with pyramids, letters, and other Egyptian imagery. During slot play, three or more hieroglyphics trigger the bonus round.
The Big One jackpot can be triggered anytime, during normal spins, auto-spins, or the feature game. The main screen will transform into a jackpot screen and players have a chance to capture five different jackpots, each of which is tied to a specific color:
Orange: Blitz Cash Jackpot
Red: Quick Cash Jackpot
Blue: Super Cash Jackpot
Green: Mega Cash Jackpot
Lavender: Colossal Cash Jackpot
That lavender color appeared for the player in Pennsylvania. And when everything stopped spinning, the BetMGM player was almost half a million dollars richer.
Alexander Limesand, Director of VIP Casino at BetMGM, commented:
“BetMGM has received industry recognition for our jackpot network, the largest exclusive state-by-state jackpot network in the U.S., and we’re pleased that our game portfolio continues to attract players across the country. Congratulations to our latest ‘Colossal’ winner, we’re already looking forward to awarding our next big win.”
By press time, the Loot’EnKhamun and the Dead Sea Scrolls jackpot had already climbed back up to $243,083.
