One of the big growth areas in online gaming has been the progressive jackpot slots.
These games offer networked accumulative jackpots- by which we mean that the jackpot is fed by multiple casinos across many countries- all the players playing that game contribute some of their bets to the progressive jackpot, which grows and grows until some lucky player lands the big one.
And these can be life changing sums. The largest jackpot payout in an online slot was €17,861,813 won by a player from Finland, playing the 'Mega Fortune' game in 2013. He bet €0.25 to scoop the win!
Another of the most famous jackpot games is Mega Moolah (for a full detailed description of this game go to MegaMoolah.org). Mega Moolah is consistently at the top of the list of highest online jackpots.
Mega Moolah, was launched at the end of 2006. it has an African safari theme with cartoon graphics and all the video slot gizmos you would expect, like wilds, scatters, and free Spins. The lion is Wild, and the monkey symbol is the Scatter. The lion can double your wins, and the monkey will trigger a 15 free spins rounds, (which can be retriggered). All wins during the free spin round are tripled.
Also look out for antelope, elephants, zebras, giraffes, and water buffalo. Plus the usual selection of poker cards: A, K, Q, and J, and the numbers 10 and 9.
Mega Moolah has no less than 4 progressive jackpot levels, as follows:
Mega Progressive, which kicks off at $1,000,000
Major Progressive, kicking off at $10,000;
Minor Progressive, kicking off at $100, and
Mini Progressive, kicking off at $10.
To win a progressive jackpot, you'll need to spin a "Wheel of Fortune" type wheel with white, yellow, orange, and red wells. There is one white well -- that's the Mega. Land on that, and it's time to crack open the champagne, as you will have won a jackpot in the millions.There are also 3 yellow wells (Major), 6 orange wells (Minor Progressive), and 10 red wells (Mini Progressive). The more you bet, the bigger your odds of winning the progressive jackpot.
