  • Everybody’s Jackpot slot is played with 8 fixed paylines.
  • The Total Bet is calculated as Line Bet x 8.
  • The slot can also be played automatically using Auto Play Mode. Select the Auto Play button and choose the number of Auto Spins you wish to play. These will play through automatically, only pausing if Free Games are awarded. You can stop Auto Play at any time by selecting Stop.

All possible payouts for winning combinations are shown on the Paytable, which is accessed via the Info button.  Line Wins are calculated as Payout (figure on Paytable) x Line Bet. Scatter Wins are calculated as Payout x Total Bet.
  • Only the highest winning combination will be paid on each payline. If multiple wins occur on different paylines, they will be added together and paid as a total win.

Info Pages:

Everybody’s Jackpot slot Info Pages are opened by clicking the Info button on the bottom left of the screen. You can move between different pages by using the arrows on the bottom right of each page. Select Back to return to the reels. The Info Pages are described below:

Paytable – this page shows all possible payouts for Line Wins and Scatter Wins.

Everybody’s Jackpot – this page explains the rules of the Progressive Jackpot, detailing how it is awarded and how to be eligible for it.

Free Games – this page describes the rules and awarding of Free Games.

Paylines – this page provides a graphic showing how the paylines appear on the reels.


Paylines are the directions that matching symbols must follow to achieve Line Wins. Everybody’s Jackpot slot is played with 8 fixed paylines. Unlike most online slots, Everybody’s Jackpot has paylines that work from right to left (paylines 1-5) and top to bottom (paylines 6-8).

Please note: there is a difference between the Line Bet and the Total Bet. The Line Bet is the wager made on each individual payline. The Total Bet is the total amount bet on all paylines, i.e. Line Bet x 8.

About Payouts:

Every possible payout for winning combinations is displayed on the Paytable screen. For a Line Win, multiply the figure displayed by the Line Bet. For a Scatter Win, take the figure shown and multiply by the Total Bet.

It is possible to have winning combinations on the same payline. If this occurs, you will be paid for the highest win only.

Everybody’s Jackpot:

This slot is played with a unique Progressive Jackpot award – Everybody’s Jackpot. The Jackpot is shared among all players who make the qualifying bets, with the majority going to the player who triggered the Jackpot award.

The Jackpot is awarded randomly, and does not depend on any particular combination on the reels. To be eligible for your share of the Jackpot (if triggered) you must wager at least €50 (or equivalent in GBP) on Everybody’s Jackpot slot in a 24 hour period. The more you bet, the bigger your share of the Jackpot.

The Jackpot is divided as follows:

Share of Jackpot

Please note: if you make the qualifying bet and the Jackpot is awarded within a 24hr period, you will still be paid your share even if you log out of the casino.

Please note: there is a meter on the side of the reels that will show your progress towards making the bet amount to be eligible for the Jackpot share.

  • The Line Bet for Free Games is the same as the triggering spin.
  • Everybody’s Jackpot cannot be triggered in Free Games, but you will still be awarded your share (if qualified) if another player wins it.
