An introduction to jackpots

A progressive jackpot is a prize pool that accumulates from every bet that players make on a slot machine. The term ”jackpot” first appeared around the 1870s, from the poker game ”Jacks or Better”. Players put their bets in a pot that could not be won unless a player had a pair of ”jacks or better”. Over time the pot could grow to become quite large before anyone won it.

When jackpots first emerged in land-based casinos, the jackpot was found on one slot machine. Over time multiple slots were linked together to allow the jackpot to build up higher. This is the same in jackpot slots in online casinos, the games are linked together, which can lead to jackpots reaching upwards of €10,000,000!

What is a progressive Jackpot?

Progressive jackpot slot machines are like every other slot machine, but with one really big difference. The pool of money available to win in a jackpot slot is connected between multiple casinos that offer the same game, making the game a progressive jackpot slot. You can find these types of slots in both land-based casinos and online casinos. The combined prize of this slot is far beyond what any one single slot could pay out alone.

You are probably wondering just how the money is collected to make up such a substantial cash prize. Well, when a player makes a wager on a jackpot slot, a percentage of the wager goes into the jackpot prize pool. So for every spin, from every player, the jackpot will grow. Consider hundreds of online casinos and millions of players playing the same game. You can quickly understand how the prize pool soars into the millions.

How to play a progressive jackpot slot

Playing a progressive jackpot slot machine is, in general, just like playing a regular slot machine, save for a few differences. For example, progressive slots have a jackpot meter, which shows the current value of the jackpot. As you play you can see the jackpot rising all the time. The jackpot meter can be found in the actual slot itself. You can also find a list of the progressive jackpot slots and how much each respective jackpot is worth under the Jackpot section.

The gameplay is just like any other slot machine, you can set your bet amount and bet levels. Just remember to read the rules for the progressive jackpot slot you are going to play, in order to make sure that you qualify for the progressive jackpot. Some progressive slots might require you to play maximum bet spins, for example. You can find the rules for each game in the Game Rules section within the game.

The biggest jackpots of all time

There are quite a number of people who have hit massively life-changing jackpots. On January 20, 2013, a Finnish man played Mega Fortune and bet €0.25 when suddenly he hit the jackpot and scooped up a staggering €17,861,813. According to the lucky winner he ”laughed and cried at the same time” when he realised that this was a dream come true moment.

Another jackpot being over €10 million is the Guinness World Record holder, which was hit on 24 September 2011. The lucky Norwegian couldn’t sleep and ended up winning €11,736,375 on Mega Fortune. He later said that after the win he really couldn’t sleep because of the shock. In Sweden, a lucky woman won €7.6 million when she played Hall of Gods. She planned to use it to pay off her house and loans, as well as take the entire family to Thailand. As the jackpots tick upwards, so does the potential for that life-changing win.
