If you’ve spent any time playing at our online or mobile casino, you already know that our regular payouts are among the best in Ireland for online games. Progressive jackpots, however, take things to a whole new level!
Progressive jackpots are attached to various casino games, which run as normal until the jackpot is triggered. They are called “progressive” because they just keep growing and getting more jaw-dropping until someone is lucky enough to win them. Since they usually run into the millions, whenever this happens, lives are changed!
The pot for a progressive jackpot is added to with a portion of every single wager placed by every single player on the progressive jackpot network. In land-based casinos this network can be all the games in a certain area of the casino, or even across a few different casinos, and it pays out handsomely but it can never be anything like as big as the network for an online casino - and neither can the bonuses themselves!
Theoretically, all online casino games can be attached to a progressive jackpot. In practice, the majority of progressive jackpots are seen on Slots games, and many of the best online slots are the ones that feature a progressive element.
The online and mobile slots that are associated with progressive jackpots can be classic or slots, and since they are Microgaming titles, you can expect all of them to be beautifully designed and perfectly executed. Other casino games that feature progressive jackpots include specific variations of Blackjack, Roulette and Poker.
Progressive jackpots can be activated and awarded at random, to whoever is lucky enough to be playing at a particular time. They’re also often activated by specific game events, such as certain symbols appearing on pre-set paylines in a slot game, particular hands in a card game or the Roulette ball landing in a specific slot twice in a row.
Once the jackpot has been activated, it can either be awarded immediately or can require players to complete further side games or tasks first. These usually determine whether you’ll get the progressive jackpot itself or a lesser reward, and are most commonly seen attached to video slots. You might have to choose from a set of objects to reveal your bonus, for example, or spin a Wheel of Fortune to determine what you’re going to get.
In many of our progressive jackpot online casino games, although not all of them, you need to bet more to activate the possibility of winning the jackpot. If your budget doesn’t stretch to this, you’ll still be able to have a great time, thanks to the superb quality of every one of our titles and the fact that the games pay out in the normal way, over and above being attached to a progressive jackpot.
Since they are so colossal, the odds of winning a progressive jackpot are understandably very steep. Imagining it, however, and fantasizing about everything you’d do if you did win makes gambling even more exciting, and is a good way to get an extra shot of adrenaline while you play.
Progressive jackpots always display what their current total is, and you can watch this climb by the second to give you motivation to play and possibly win it! As soon as the jackpot is won, the prize is reset to its minimum amount, which is really impressive in itself. If you’d like to take your shot at winning one of these, we don’t blame you.
