Progressive jackpots are captivating more and more people everyday which isn’t really all that surprising.
How many of us can honestly say that they’ve never dreamt about hitting that huge jackpot so you never have to work another day in your life? My point exactly. But how realistic is it to actually ever win a progressive jackpot? Are they like that pot of gold sitting at the end of the rainbow?
And how does a progressive jackpot actually work? The payouts of progressive slot machines are exactly that – progressive – meaning that they progressively grow as more bets are made by slot players. Several hundred online slot games might be linked together across numerous online casinos. The more bets that are placed, the bigger the jackpot grows because every wager placed by every individual playing is a contribution to the jackpot’s total. And the beauty of such progressive games is there is no maximum limit on the jackpot … it just keeps on growing until it’s hit by a player. Progressive jackpots can (and do) easily reach millions of dollars. My advice is that if you are going to play the slot machines make sure that you always place the maximum bet allowed (ie the maximum number of credits per play) so that you are eligible to win a progressive jackpot. But even though only those players who wager the maximum number of credits per play can qualify to win the progressive jackpot, all wagers, whether or not they’re max credit bets, go towards the progressive.
