Mobile online gambling, whether that is bingo, classic casino games are all exciting to play. Nevertheless, it is those progressive slots games that draw big crowds too as they offer the chance of winning some life-changing prize pots, and it’s because of this chance that many of us who enjoy a wager online will put a little of a bank roll to one side in order to play on the progressives.
Invented in the 1980s the progressives really took off in the 1990s with the advent of the online casinos, and now they are a firm favorite with many slots players.
Progressive slots offer such big prize because a small amount of each and every bet made (usually 1%) gets put to one side into the progressive jackpot, and the more people who play the slots the bigger the prize pot will grow. Progressive slots can be linked, which means that there can be many players on one game across the world at any one time.
Before the linked progressive jackpot games jackpots were limited to a single machine, the prizes didn’t rise that fast. In other words, the wins that were paid out were not very big. So when the progressives came into play, it was natural that people would gravitate to those games.
Online casinos have numerous progressive jackpot games, and one of the biggest wins was 4.1 million just before Christmas 2013 to a Stockholm man who was playing Arabian Nights game. Mega Moolah has given a few million to some lucky players just like the player from Finland, who bagged themselves an amazing £5.5 million.
In the UK one player who was enjoying the progressive game the Dark Knight Rises scooped an incredible 5.8 million. Of course, you will have to play UK slots with real money if you want a chance to scoop a multi-million pound jackpot.
2011 witnessed another Finish player win an amazing 11.7 million on the Mega Fortune slots as well as a truly staggering 17.8 million win by another Finnish player. So just imagine what it would have been like to wager 25c on a spin and find that you have triggered the bonus game that played through all three of its rounds making you the biggest progressive jackpot winner of the time.
The beauty of the online progressive jackpot is that once it has been won its value is then reset back to the base level, and this level can actually be quite a sum of money. As soon as the level has been reset it will start to grow again. So if you want to check out what any particular progressive game is worth, then you can easily find those details on your online casino home page.
