How it Works

A progressive jackpot is a large sum of money attached to an online casino game where a portion of a player’s wager is added to the jackpot prize. Casino games are often liked together and create large jackpot pools. A player contributes to the prize pool of a jackpot with every bet he/she makes. The casino games that offer large progressives are usually the slot games. If you are playing on a progressive slot, you should bet the maximum amount if you want to hit big. Otherwise you will miss the chance to walk away with big money.

Non-slot games like video poker and some table games also offer progressives. There are also free progressive jackpot games you can try out, but to play for real you have to be registered as a real player at an online casino and place a wager. The free play-for-fun mode comes in handy only if you want to check out the game and practice skills before you switch to real money play and win big money.

Progressive Jackpot Casino Games

The majority of online casino games that come with progressives are the slots. Some of them include The Dark Night, Major Millions, Mega Moolah, Mega Moolah Isis etc. However, some table games and video poker variants also offer progressive jackpots. Roulette Royale and Poker Ride from the table games library and Jackpot Deuces and SupaJax from the video poker section are some of the tittles that offer jackpots.

The Big Winners in History

The largest progressive jackpot winners in history are those that have hit it big in the slot games. For example, a player from Greece called Georgios M. won €6.3 million in 2009 while playing Mega Moolah and Joaquim M won €1.4 million on Major Millions back in 2004. A player called Gamago also hit a jackpot worth $4.9 million on the Mega Fortune Wheel. These are just some of the winners that have won big money. It is just a matter of time before another lucky player from around the world hits the next big jackpot.
