The obvious appeal of progressive jackpot slots are the huge prize pools that you can play for. Some of these prizes can start from as low as $10,000 but reach well over $2,000,000. Providing you are a registered member of the casino and you have sufficient funds in your account, you will be able to play for one of their progressive jackpots.
How to Find a Progressive Jackpot Slot
Not all online casinos are connected to a progressive jackpot network, but most of the reputable online casinos are. There is usually a designated section for the progressive jackpot games and most of these games are usually progressive jackpot slots.
Before signing up with an online casino, you will be able to search through the games section to see if they actually have any progressive jackpot games. This should be clear as soon as you land on the homepage or they may even have a ‘Jackpot’ section listing all of the progressive games.
This section also usually reveals the current value of each jackpot. The jackpot is likely to be constantly changing and can be won by any player, at any time and usually when they are betting max.
How do I Win a Progressive Jackpot
There is no actual technique or strategy for being able to win one a progressive jackpot, because they are random, but the best advice to give is if you see that a jackpot hasn’t been won for a while and the prize is quite large, start playing on it. You may notice that a jackpot repeatedly climbs up to about $60,000 or $70,000 before it is won, so once it reaches this amount again, start playing on it.
This pattern tends to emerge across all progressive jackpot networks because when the prizes are large, more people tend to play on them. So wait for the prize to become reasonably big and then try and take it down.
What happens when I win a Jackpot?
Once you have won a jackpot, the cash will be instantly awarded to you like an ordinary win. If the jackpot happens to be a very large win for example somewhere in the region of $1,000,000 or more, then it may need to be verified and you may have to contact the support (or they will contact you) to discuss withdrawing this large amount.
A large win like this may take slightly longer to withdraw (possibly 48hrs or more) as opposed to withdrawing small amounts as low as $40 or $50.
As soon as a player has won a progressive jackpot prize, the prize pool will instantly be reset to its starting amount so that is can start to climb again.
