Real Money Progressive Jackpot Slots
You may have heard of Pai Gow, the domino game originating from ancient China, but if you’ve ever been to a land or online casino since 1985, you may be more familiar with the contemporary, exhilarating game of Pai Gow poker. Taking the best parts of Pai Gow and poker, Pai Gow poker has been a favorite of gamblers the world over.
Deep down, the reason we all gamble is because we want to win enough cash to change our lives. Some people stick to lottery tickets, others try their luck at online casinos. If you’re in the latter category and you want to win a sum of money that could dramatically change your net worth, you could conceivably do just that at table games like blackjack or roulette. But that’s going to take a lot of time and a lot of luck because the payouts are only so high.
If you want a chance to win a life-changing amount of money every time you spin, then progressive jackpot slots are the way to go.
On your average slot machine, the jackpot has a fixed amount. And while those jackpots aren’t a sum of money that you would ever consider turning down, progressive jackpot slots have no fixed amount. The jackpot rises every time players put in coins and spin the wheels. With progressive jackpot slots, you could win anywhere from $10,000 to a couple million. It’s just a matter of finding the right progressive jackpot slot and being lucky.

How do Progressive Jackpot Slots Work?
The question we’re most frequently asked regarding progressive jackpots is, “Where does all of that prize money come from?” And, luckily, we have a simple answer.
Each time a player places a bet on one of our many progressive jackpot games, a percentage of their wager is fed straight to the jackpot prize pool. Depending on the popularity of any given game, this percentage of each player’s wager can climb up to the millions. The pooled percentages of player wagers will continue to grow until the jackpot is won.
Now that you know how the progressive jackpot is created, the question surely on your mind is, “How do I win the jackpot?” Well, that depends on the particular game you’re playing. They all have different specifics of what’s required of any given player to collect the grand prize, but in the simplest of terms, a player must typically land on 5 (or more) of the most valuable symbols.
Once the jackpot is won, the meter is reset to the minimum. So, it’s a good idea to browse around and find a few different favorite progressive jackpot slots games. This way, you can always be competing for a gigantic jackpot rather than having to wait patiently for the jackpot to rise over time.
Types of Progressive Jackpot Slot Games
There are all kinds of progressive jackpot games that can be found on our online casino. By in large, the main differences players will see between them are purely cosmetic. While we could breakdown each and every progressive jackpot slot game offered at our online casino, breaking down the different combinations, the different bonuses, etc. you’re better off knowing the three main types of jackpot games: standalone, local and wide area network.
There are important differences between each of these slot games players need to know about whether they play at our real money casino or elsewhere. And they go far beyond knowing the differences between spinning for five cherries versus spinning for five bananas.
A standalone progressive slot machine has a jackpot ticker, collected from player wagers, but only bets placed on that specific machine feeds the jackpot. Standalones are typically more common in brick-and-mortar casinos. Even then, they have gone out of style in recent years with more casinos preferring to link multiple machines together for bigger jackpots. It’s very rare to find a standalone progressive game nowadays, and if you do find one out there in the wild, you should be shocked if the jackpot is anywhere close to $10,000. But they are out there nonetheless.
Local progressives were the logical evolution of standalone progressives. Rather than one specific machine taking a percentage of player wagers, these games were linked together on a local connection so that anywhere from a few dozen to a few hundred machines were all collecting a percentage of player wagers to drive up the jackpot total. These are still common in land casinos and these games can have jackpots from anywhere to $100,000 to $1,000,000.
Wide area network progressives. A wide area network progressive links slot machines from multiple casinos in the same state. This allows the jackpot to accumulate to incredible, jaw-dropping sums of money based on the sheer number of people placing wagers. Our online progressive jackpot games use this same principle and it’s how we are able to offer such huge jackpots. With players from all over the world playing at all hours of the day, the jackpot will steadily get higher and higher. Don’t be surprised if these games offer jackpots anywhere in the range of a couple million…
Winning Progressive Jackpot SlotsInexperienced players and non-gamblers carry many misconceptions about casino games, but the one they seem to understand the least are slots games. For example, a common criticism laid against slots games, both fixed and progressive, is that there’s no skill or strategy involved. You just sit there, feeding the machine.
This is simply not true. If you have any hope of winning a progressive jackpot slot game, you need to develop a strategy and have a little bit of skill because luck can only take you so far. And, while luck could conceivably take you straight to the top, here are a few tips to get you through the game even when luck isn’t on your side.
Look for games with higher payouts. Fortune favors the bold, sure, but being bold doesn’t mean diving in headfirst without pertinent information. Progressive slots games can feature payout percentages anywhere from 80 to 98%. Make sure you know what the payout percentage is before you spin to make the most of your time. Knowing this in advance will assist you in bankroll management and choosing a game with higher payouts will be more financially advantageous when you eventually heat up.
Bet the max. Many progressive slots have bonus jackpot games that randomly activate during any given session. According to the rules of these games, the odds of a player triggering one of these random bonus jackpots are increased when they bet the maximum amount. Bonus jackpots are a great way to keep your bankroll nice and comfortable, but make sure you’re playing a game with one of these randomly activated bonus jackpots before you’re consistently betting the max.
Know your limits. The key to success in any slots game, or table game for that matter, is knowing when to walk away. Bankroll management is the most essential skill for any gambler to master. Setting betting limits prior to playing will make sure you’re staying out of the red. It is possible for you to set daily, weekly and monthly betting limits within your account, so sign up today and make sure you set appropriate limits. If you need help setting it up, please get in touch with us and we’ll be happy to assist you.
