Play the X Factor Jackpot Slot Machine

  • The X-Factor Jackpot slot is based on the TV series & is licenced by Endemol
  • 3 different bonus features including a free spin feature with sticky wilds
  • Follow up to the popular original X-Factor slot (but this one's waaay better!)

    See below for a list of online casinos with X-Factor slot machines
  • The X Factor Jackpot slot machine is a follow-up to the "X-factor Steps To Stardom" game and has been developed by London-based Ash Gaming who are now owned by Playtech. When you play the X-Factor Jackpot, it doesn't take long to realise that it's also a huge improvement over the first version with three seperate bonus features and some fantastic footage from the UK version of the X-Factor TV show.

    As branded slots go, I'm not sure it really has the longevity of some other comparative games, such as IGT's latest Elvis slot which also has 3 seperate bonus features, mainly because the main bonus feature plays out too slowly in my opinion and, along with Gladiator and the Deal Or No deal slot machine it is one of the few games here at Games & Slot Machines that won't be found in land-based casinos.

    The three bonus features in the X-Factor Jackpot slot machine are very different. My favorite is the free spin feature which, like Playtech's Iron man 2 slot has sticky wilds. In X Factor however, you get up to 4 sticky wild symbols and up to 20 free spins (both numbers are random). That said, and although it's my favorite bonus feature here, I've never won a massive amount from it. I'm guessing one of the 4 jackpots that the slot offers would satisfy that craving!

    The "Microphone bonus" round is pretty boring - it's simply a monetary award when the microphone symbol lands on the center reel - but the main bonus feature, where you get to vote on the X Factor acts, is excellent. It can take quite a while to play out if you are doing well but it's great eye-and-ear-candy, especially if you are a fan of the show. Another interesting fact about the X-Factor 2 slot machine is that it's "scaleable" meaning that, after every X-factor series, Ash Gaming can update the performers and songs to keep the game fresh.

    When you play X-Factor 2, it makes Novomatic games like the Book Of Ra and Aristocrat offerings like the Queen Of The Nile slot machine feel a bit dated. However, as far as game-play goes, you get the impression that the X-Factor slot is built to entertain rather than to make people millionaires. OK, so the jackpots will actually make some people much, much better off over time (not in fun play mode obviously!) but if you are looking for a game to make a quick killing from and don't mind high risk slot machines, games like the Dolphin's Pearl slot or another Novomatic favorite the Sizzling Hot Deluxe slot machine are going to be more up your street than the X-Factor slots. If however you want fun and are happy with modest profits every now and again, X Factor 2 is a hard act to beat.
