We all know what a “jackpot” is, there are jackpots in almost all versions of Joker, Lotto, euro lotto etc.
In this post we’ll have a look at the Progressive jackpots offered by online casinos when you play slots or video Poker.
A progressive jackpot is a jackpot that can offer players the opportunity to win a life altering amount of money. It’s offered through a slot machine or video poker machine where the value of the jackpot increases by a small amount on each game until a player wins the jackpot.
Multiple machines are linked together to form one large progressive jackpot that grows more quickly because multiple players are contributing to the jackpot at the same time.
The different progressive jackpots are awarded completely at random and are available only in ‘real money mode’.
The amount that the jackpot increases is set by the casino. Usually the house edge is about 5%, so the casino contributes 1% (one fifth of the expected profit) on a jackpot linked machine to attract players. Usually players who wager a certain number of credits (or more) per play qualify to win the jackpot, but all wagers, (whether or not they are maximum credit bets) contribute to the jackpot.
There are games with smaller ‘maximum numbers of credits‘than others but this affects the final jackpot amount. In other words if you choose to play for the BIG jackpots be prepared to spend more money, the choice is yours but remember to play sensibly
At the time this post was written there were big amounts of money waiting to be won almost on every online casino that we work with in this site
