The ceiling was well and truly smashed in March, with the biggest sum of the year being won on Book of Power, a massive €144,987.50, although this was from a very ambitious €70 bet, meaning that the mammoth sum was reached with a multiplier of just x2071, not high enough to make this month’s highest multiplier wins table.
Yggdrasil’s Jackpot Raiders also rose to the occasion, plundering the biggest multiplier win of the year so far, which also managed to attain the lofty accomplishment of being the fourth highest monetary win as well, an incredible €65,085.91 from a tiny bet of just €0.11.
This month’s lineup of games was much more varied than previous months, with Hacksaw’s iron grip on the tables diminishing from ten appearances last month to just five in March, though their big title Wanted Dead or a Wild remains fairly hot with two entries in the highest monetary wins. Push Gaming’s Big Bamboo - which chewed up the biggest multiplier wins in both January and February - also remains hot, holding two respectable rankings among this month’s highest multiplier wins.

Relax Gaming’s most recent creative collaboration with the streaming community Casinogrounds is yet another spin on the eternally popular “Book of-” format, offering high-volatility gameplay with a max win of 15,000x the bet.
Three, four, or five scatter symbols trigger a bonus round of 10, 15, or 20 free spins, as well as immediately paying out 10x, 100x, or 500x the bet. As is always the case for a “Book of” game, a special expanding symbol is randomly selected before the round begins, covering all positions on its reel if doing so would create wins and paying all ways from any position. Two more scatters appearing during the round awards five extra spins, as well as selecting a second special expanding symbol to be added to the mix. If the same symbol is selected again, then +1 is added to its multiplier, up to a maximum of 9.
For players who want to get to the heart of the action, there’s a “Power Bet” option that can be activated to increase the chances of landing a free spins feature by 170% in exchange for double the stake.
Beyond regular free spins, the game also features “Power Free Spins”. If one of the scatter symbols that triggers a bonus round is the “Power Book” scatter, that symbol’s reel becomes golden, and a special expanding symbol is guaranteed to land there on every spin.
An adventure-themed title that wears its influences on its sleeves and pack is absolutely heaving with features: two free spins games, two bonus games, a pick-and-click game, and to cap it all off five jackpots to be claimed.
The game’s scatter symbols are compasses, which when they land, may grant either “Jackpot Free Spins”, or “Treasure Hunt Bonus Game”. In the “Treasure Hunt Bonus Game”, you’re given a choice of two characters, Bear and Sam, the former giving you a higher volatility experience and the latter lower volatility. You will be given a series of chests to choose from across three levels, choosing correctly will award prizes of up to 1,800 coins.
The five jackpots can each be one by collecting five gems of the corresponding colour. For the chance to grab some gems, you’ll need to trigger “Jackpot Free Spins”, which can be achieved in a few ways: by landing three compass scatter symbols - either in the base game or the “Pick & Click Chest Game” and then landing the free spins option on those, or by collecting five maps of type (which also grants an extra jackpot gem to begin your round). The jackpots are progressive but all begin with the following starting values:
Forgotten - €40
Rare - €200
Mythical - €600
Ancient - €1,500
Legendary - €15,000
For an even better chance at winning a jackpot, there are “Sunken City Free Spins”. To trigger these, 5 relics are required, which can be won during the “Treasure Hunt Bonus Game”. The round is played with a x10 multiplier in effect - rather than “Jackpot Free Spins” usual x3 - and one of each gem is granted at the start of the round to help you on your way to securing a jackpot.
March saw Play’n GO’s Gigantoonz land one lucky player a gigantic win of €38,406 from a €20 bet - a multiplier of x1920.3.
The game uses the popular cascading symbols mechanic and features “Mega Symbols” that can appear in sizes of up to 7x7 and have random values assigned to them of up to x13. Every winning “Mega Symbol” that is removed as part of a win will leave in its place a 1x1 wild symbol. There’s always a chance that one to five of these wilds will be added to the grid at random, by the “Quantum Wilds” feature, on any non-winning spin.
Each winning symbol removed from the grid adds one charge to the “Quantumeter”. The meter can hold up to 100 charges and awards four different modifiers at various stages:
Disintegration – at 25 charges, all instances of 4 randomly selected symbols are removed
Metamorphosis – at 50 charges, all instances of one symbol are randomly transformed into a different symbol. This includes mega symbols.
Radiation – at 75 charges, 1-4 mega symbols and 2-5 “Quantum Wilds” are added in random positions.
Gargantoonz - at 100 charges, all mega symbols transform into “Mega Gargantoonz”, which are not removed with wins on their first spin.

Push Gaming’s 80s throwback Retro Tapes made its way to second place on March’s multiplier wins chart with a win of €2,000 from a bet of just €0.20.
Three or more Wild Tape Symbols trigger the “Top Charts Feature”. When the round begins, all Wild Tape Symbols and Instant Prize Symbols on the grid are carried over. All empty positions are spun and any symbols that land become sticky, remaining on the grid until they are all paid out at the end of the feature. The feature ends when either all free spins have been used or every position on the grid is filled.
The game features the following symbols:
Wild Tape Symbol - Each time a Wild Tape Symbol is included in a win, its multiplier increases by +1, during the “Top Charts Feature” these also award +2 free spins.
Wild Multiplier Symbol - Star-shaped symbols that carry multipliers of up to 5x that are added to any “Wild Tape Symbols” in view.
Instant Prize Symbol - Coins which carry values of up to 1,000x. They are paid out when they appear in clusters of five or more.
Magnet Symbol - Randomly selects a pay symbol and pulls all instances of that symbol toward itself to form a cluster.
Extra Spin Symbol - Exclusive to the “Top Charts Feature”. It does exactly what it says.
Blank Tape Symbol - Exclusive to the “Top Charts Feature”. It has no value and does not become sticky.
A new entry to the charts from the big win powerhouse, Hacksaw Gaming. Undead Fortune centres around its DuelReels mechanic, which gives wilds the potential to expand across and apply multipliers to their reels, and summoned forth its max win of 10,000x the bet for one fortunate soul.
Two types of duel can take place. There’s the “Walking Duel”, which is triggered when a “Walk VS” symbol lands. A monster with a multiplier value of up to 200x will appear and must be fought. If it’s defeated, the wild will expand to cover the reel and award a respin. On the respin, the expanded symbol moves one column to the left if possible. Then there’s “Expanding DuelReels”, triggered by the “Expand VS” symbol, which expands - rather than just moves - one column to the left, creating another monster that can be defeated to earn an additional multiplier.
Bonus games also come in two forms. “The Curse” is a simple round of 10 free spins that begins when three Curse scatter symbols appear and provides higher odds of triggering duels.
“The Tomb” bonus game is triggered by three Tomb scatters and begins with a multiplier value displayed above each reel. Some reels are locked, and some are active. Locked reels can be unlocked by a stack of 4 “Unlock symbols” landing on them, or by the “Golden Unlock” symbol, which unlocks all reels. Landing a “Tomb VS” symbol on an active reel reveals a monster, which if defeated adds its multiplier to that reel, if it wins the duel, however, that reel is then locked. If destiny is on your side, you may even land the “Epic VS” symbol, which makes an entire battle for multipliers play out across all reels. When all five reels are locked, the feature ends and the sum of all multipliers displayed is paid out.
This highly unconventional slot from INO Games found its way to fourth place on last month’s table of top multiplier wins with a x9,501 win, producing a payout of €644.62 from a tiny €0.07 bet.
Leprechaun Strike takes place on a 1x1 grid. Sounds strange, but it delivers some truly compelling risk/reward gameplay. There are three “Cash Columns”, each with six levels, one to be filled with pots of gold (top level 50x the bet), another to be filled with coins (top level 25x), and the last to be filled with clovers (top level 10x). Whenever a corresponding symbol appears, one level of that column is filled. The prizes are not paid out immediately but are paid into the “Cash Pot”, which can be collected at any time.
As well as the three main pay symbols, there are a number of other symbols that have a variety of effects:
Leprechaun Wins - Copies and adds to the “Cash Pot” the highest highlighted value of a random “Cash Column”.
Leprechaun Song - Increases the level of all 3 “Cash Columns” by one.
Bummer the Unicorn - Resets all “Cash Columns” to level 0.
Rainbow - protects any number of rows and/or columns of the “Cash Columns” from the effects of the Bummer Symbol.
Cloud - removes the effects of the Rainbow.
Free Spins - triggers 1 to 15 free spins that are played on five separate reels, resulting in a much higher potential for wins.
Completing all 3 “Cash Columns” awards the “Strike Bonus”, which is played in two rounds and consists of three pots worth 25x, 40x, and 60x the bet. In each round, the unicorn attacks one of the pots, before the round begins you need to select one of the pots to protect. If an unprotected pot is attacked, it disappears. At the end of the round, the values of any remaining pots are paid out.
