In my recent article, “How Do Progressive Jackpots Work,” I outlined what these machines are and how they operate. In this title question, which I also referenced in said article, I will reiterate once again what a progressive slot machine is and why it is one of the most popular slot machines at both online and land-based casinos.
Huge Payouts Playing Progressive Slots
Basically, what you need to know is that progressive slots are tied into each other thereby producing outrageous payouts. For example, let’s say you are playing Cleopatra’s Pyramid Slots at Liberty Slots Casino along with other fellow players. At the same time, players at Lincoln Casino are playing the same game. At the same time, others are playing this game at other online casinos where this game is available. A portion of all the wagers made from each machine and from different online casinos are pooled into the progressive jackpot. The more people that play Cleopatra’s Pyramid, the higher the progressive jackpot becomes. I also mentioned to you my experience at a Las Vegas casino where I played at a circle of progressive slot machines. In this case, the games were all different; nonetheless they were all tied into each other in this circle of slots producing the huge progressive jackpot.
Progressive Slot Machines Come in All Forms
We have seen progressive slot machines in classic slots, 3-reel slots, 5-reel bonus slots, and of course, the actual progressive slot. We have also seen a progressive slot, with up to 4 jackpots along with the progressive payout. These jackpots range from Mini, Major, Minor, and Grand. Even now, we are seeing new and more advanced progressive slots with side jackpots called Mystery, Grab, and Super Slots jackpots.
Winning a Progressive Jackpot Has Reached a New High
Some slot machines have just a progressive jackpot, while others have a random progressive jackpot. This simply means that the progressive jackpot can be won at any time. Moreover, there are progressive jackpots wherein the pot has to reach a certain amount before it pays off. For example, $10,000, $25,000 or more is the peak at which these progressive jackpots will pay off.
Examples of Progressive Jackpots
Perhaps you already know that some progressive slots pay out more often than not.
Several of them include Mega Money Mine Slots, Win Place or Show Slots, and Red White and Win Slots. You can play these slot games at Liberty Slots Casino where the RTP or Return to Player is 98.41%.
Bet the Max!
Finally, it is important to note that when reading the pay table rules given for progressive slots, they will tell you outright that in order to win the progressive jackpot you have to bet the max. I have been saying this for years in my slot reviews. Another important note for those that believe progressive jackpots are too expensive and they’ll never win: A gentleman won over $37 million dollars on a progressive jackpot several years ago. Now this is quite a phenomenon, but it does happen. Just take a look at our winners list. It isn’t the jackpot so much as a win is a win.
