For me the idea of ‘jackpot’ has always been associated with slot machines – it’s understandable, as the first time I have ever seen the word ‘jackpot’ in my life was on a classic three-reel machine. It was a mechanical fruit machine, with all the classic symbols – the horseshoe, the lemon, the cherry and the others – painted on its rusty reels. Unfortunately, I was never lucky enough to hit the jackpot on that old rusty thing, but I never stopped trying.
The amount deposited in the old jackpot slots container was rather small back in the day. It was a huge amount for me – I was just a kid, as I mentioned before. In time the slot machines have become connected, and later they moved online, transforming the few bucks in a small plexi container attached to the machine into a small fortune most of the times. Progressive jackpot slots (or pooled jackpot slots) can nowadays reach hundreds of thousands, or even millions of dollars.
Jackpot Slots Game
Online gambling software providers are usually those who operate and maintain progressive jackpot machines. The online casinos like these games, as the promise of a huge winning is always an incentive to gamble, and players also like them – for the chance of winning big, of course. Let’s see which ones are the biggest, most attractive jackpot slots available at online casinos.
Beach Life Jackpot
Beach Life is a 20-payline 5-reel online jackpot slots machine developed by Playtech, one of the best software providers of the iGaming industry. It has – as its name shows – beach-related graphics and offers an average jackpot slot of over €2 million. The greatest progressive jackpot slot payout ever to be won by a player – in February 2012 – was over €6.2 million.
Microgaming was the first company ever to launch an online casino package. Its progressive jackpot slot machine, the Mega Moolah, features five reels and 25 paylines, and has a progressive jackpot of the order of millions. The record winnings ever to be cashed in by Mega Moolah players was €6.37 million. The total amount paid out in Mega Moolah jackpot winnings exceeds €280 million.
Jackpot Pinatas is a 5-reel, 20 payline online slot machine with a Mexican theme and some fun features. The highest progressive jackpot slot ever recorded at this slot machine is over $1.7 million. It is a fun game with a promise of great winnings.
There are several other online casino software providers, all with their games and progressive jackpot networks. Be aware, though, that not all online casinos choose to be part of the networks – several of them use software provided by dedicated companies but don’t feature the games with the highest jackpots at all.
