Millionaires Club Slot review: A Casino Rewards exclusive game
How can you win a million playing at a Casino Rewards site? Of course, the most obvious answer to many players is that you could be a lucky winner of a massive progressive jackpot prize, Mega Moolah being the most obvious selection given that the slot offers players a guaranteed jackpot of a million and often lots more.
There are times when other games, such as Major Millions, can see its progressive jackpot crash through the million barrier, while there are also slots that offer a chance of a big money win in credit terms with the likes of Thunderstruck II, Terminator 2 and Immortal Romance all offering the chance of million credit-plus jackpot wins.
However, one of the lesser known ways you could win over a million, if you are a higher roller, is to play the Microgaming-designed, Casino Rewards exclusive slot 'Casino Rewards Millionaires Club'. This 5-reel slot with 20 non-selectable pay lines can be played from as little as 0.20 per spin, but for the real riches, you'd need to bet nearer the maximum bet range which can be as high as a massive 800.00 per spin!
So this is a slot that caters for real high rollers, as well as lower stakes players and as an exclusive slot it is also one of the lesser known Microgaming games. So how does it shape up? We decided to take a closer look to find out.

Well, I wasn't expecting to see a massive Hollywood-style extravaganza when it comes to presentation for the Millionaire's Club slot at Casino Rewards, but even I was taken aback a little by how sparse it is. A green backdrop with CR embellished into it is rather dull and uninspiring and the reels are very basic too. This game is unlike the Roar of Thunder slot, which has an great presentation and game-play is engaging enough (it just doesn't have the big jackpot prize that the Millionaires Club Slot has).
The animations are basic but work generally well across the wide range of different devices that you can access the game from. This is a slot that is more functional than spectacular to be truthful and it is definitely the lure of some of the bigger jackpots that are going to draw in players, particularly the higher rollers.
What is on the reels?
There are ten standard symbols on the reels in the base game of the Millionaire's Club slot. They start with the playing card low symbols, of which there are five. The ten, jack, queen, king and ace. These offer a range of prizes, all starting with three-symbol wins starting at 5 coins and increasing up to 150 coins for five aces across the reels.
Alongside those symbols are the four higher value symbols who are the, we can only assume, four lucky millionaire winners. The lady holding the champagne flute is the lowest of the quartet offering wins from 10 coins up to 400 coins. The man twirling the keys to a new car on his finger offers wins from 10 coins up to 500 coins.
The chap with the goatee beard holding a wad of cash offers wins from 20 coins up to 600 coins and the highest value symbol is the lady with the crown and sceptre, who offers wins of 20 coins to 800 coins, but also a small win of 5 coins if you land her twice on a pay line from left to right across the reels.
The final standard symbol is the mystery millionaire who also offers a small 5 coin win for 2 across the pay lines but then offers wins from 50 coins to 1000 coins for three to five symbol wins. While a standard symbol in the base game, the nature of this symbol does alter during Free Spins.
Alongside these symbols there are two more symbols, the Wild and Scatter, which unlock the main bonus features in the game.
The Casino Rewards crest is the in game Wild symbol and it can substitute for all of the standard symbols in the game. In addition to acting as a substitute to help trigger bigger or more wins, you can also land prizes of between 10 coins and 3,000 coins (the base game top prize), if you land between two and five Wilds across the reels on a winning line.
Free Spins features
The money symbols on a shield are the Scatter symbols in the game and these serve two purposes. Land two or more to win a cash prize that is calculated as an amount based on your triggering bet. Two scatters triggers a win of 2x your bet, three triggers 4x your bet, four is 20x your bet and land all five for a huge 200x your bet.
If you land three or more Scatters, you also trigger the Free Spins bonus round. Regardless of how many Scatters you land, you receive 12 Free Spins with a randomly selected multiplier of up to 7x your standard win.
During this bonus, the highest value standard symbol, the mystery winner, becomes an additional Wild on the reels alongside the Casino Rewards Wild, which offers you an even better chance at a bigger value win. You can also re-trigger this bonus from within the game by landing three or more Scatters once again during your Free Spins.
Best feature of the Casino Rewards Millionaire's Club slot
There's not too many features on the Casino Rewards Millionaire's Club slot so it has to be the Free Spins bonus game that is the best feature. The additional Wild on the reels does make a big difference, although pay outs can still be somewhat volatile, and the fact you can re-trigger the bonus is a positive too.
Simple in design and execution, the Casino Rewards Millionaire's Club slot does offer some very high prizes, but only really if you are a higher roller. For the standard punter, the slot won't pay out anywhere near the million-plus jackpot in terms of pounds (or whatever currency you play in) but it still offers a chance of a good value win. There isn't a huge amount to the slot to be honest and there are much better Microgaming slots out there you can play, but as a slot that you can only play at Casino Rewards casinos, it may be one you want to try out for yourself for curiosities sake alone.
