Progressive jackpot record

When casino game software developers compete, usually the UK players are the big winners. That’s certainly the case with progressive jackpots as they compete to see which game has the highest payout.

Currently, Microgaming owns the bragging rights as its Mega Moolah slots game blew past the competition in September 2019, with a jackpot that paid out 10% more than the second-place game. Of course, the player was the real winner with a jackpot win of €18,915,872.

The previous record-holder was a jackpot of €17,861,800 from the NetEnt game Mega Fortune.

What is Progressive Jackpot

A progressive jackpot is an extra feature that appears on select online casino games. While they are usually associated with online slot games, you can find these jackpots in online roulette, blackjack, and baccarat as well.

Instead of a traditional casino win, which is based on the odds of winning, or a predetermined paytable, the progressive jackpot is always getting progressively bigger. This happens because the game takes a small percentage of all bets made on those games, from all the different online casinos around the world, and adds it to this special jackpot.

There are different kinds of progressive jackpots. Some games have multiple jackpots, one that can pay out daily, has a limit on the maximum amount of money in the jackpot before it must select a winner, and the unlimited jackpot that continually grows until some lucky player wins it.

Progressive jackpots can be limited to a certain game, as is the case in Mega Moolah and Great Blue Jackpot, or it can combine bets from game franchises, such as the Age of the Gods and Kingdoms Rise.

While there is no single way to win a progressive jackpot, some games payout to random winners while others are dependent on the symbols in the game, you can increase your odds of winning by making bigger wagers.

Progressive jackpots can be found in all types of online slot games, from movie-themed games like Gladiator Jackpot, to animal themes like Mega Moolah, to a fantasy world as is the case with Kingdoms Rise. To find a complete list of the progressive jackpots at SlotsHeaven.com, just visit the casino game lobby and click on the Jackpot tab.

Do Progressive Jackpots Affect the Outcome of Normal Slot Games?

Progressive jackpots run in the background of the casino games they are found in. Whether it selects a winner at random or it’s based on the symbols that line up on the reels, the base game isn’t affected by the progressive jackpot. The only slight difference you’ll find with progressive jackpot games is the Return to Player (RTP) which will have a percentage range (for example 95% - 97%), to include the jackpot part of your wager.

As far as the actual gameplay, you could spin the reels come up with no winning combinations and still win the jackpot, so in that respect, the progressive jackpot has no impact on the game.

If you’re playing a game that picks progressive jackpot winners based on the symbols on the reels, it could have a minimum impact on your odds of winning. This is because the jackpot symbol can land on the reels, and lower your odds of winning a traditional payout.

What’re the differences between a progressive and non-progressive jackpot?

While some fixed jackpots can payout 10,000 or 20,000 times your line bet if you get 5 joker symbols in a row, it doesn’t match the excitement winning a progressive jackpot.

Jackpot grows based on bets made on the game around the world A paytable determines the maximum win for each set of symbols.
While making larger bets can increase your odds of winning, the size of your bet has no impact on how much money you can win. All wins are based on the line bet. If you increase the size of your bet you will be in line to win more money.
Progressive jackpots go months or even years in between winners, giving it time to grow. The fixed jackpot never grows, regardless of whether a player ever wins it.
Winners are often selected at random and are not connected to the symbols on the reels. You need to have a certain combination of reels either along a payline, or adjacent reels, depending on the game’s rules, to win the jackpot.

Mobile Experience

Playing online casino games with a progressive jackpot on your mobile devices gives UK players the freedom they never experienced before. Who knows where you’ll be when you hit that lucky jackpot?

The vast majority of progressive slot games are mobile-friendly, although whether you can hold the phone in landscape or portrait mode will depend on the individual game. Most newer games are designed using HTML5 which allows that game to adjust to the size of your screen. This means that buttons might change size or location, but the game design makes it easy to find the options that you need to change your bet, turn on autoplay, or spin the reel.

Playing on your mobile won’t change the odds of winning, that goes for the base game and the progressive jackpot. There is no special software to download, all you need is a stable internet connection and an active SlotsHeaven.com account to get started.

FAQ: 

  1. How do progressive jackpots work?

    The progressive jackpot grows bigger each time a player anywhere in the world make a bet on that specific game or game franchise. The ways to win will vary based on the game, whether it's random, based on symbols, or if you have to play a bonus game before determining your fate. Once a winner is paid out, the jackpot resets to the minimum base and begins to grow again.
  2. How are progressive jackpots paid?

    There isn’t a single answer to this question, as it depends on the jackpot. Daily jackpots, which are typically a few thousand pounds, will pay out rather quickly with the money being added to your account. Major jackpots will take some time as the gambling commission takes a look to make sure everything is above board and the winner will have to be verified by the game developer. After that, the winner is contacted by the casino and the payment be transferred as a lump payment or in several payments.
  3. What are the biggest jackpots?

    Typically the largest jackpots only trigger a winner every year or two. Mega Moolah and Mega Fortune are two of the highest paying progressive jackpots. Gladiator: Roar to Rome has a progressive that has surpassed 3 million pounds. An easy to find the current game with the largest jackpot is to go to the casino game lobby. On the bottom of each thumbnail of a progressive jackpot game is the updated jackpot total. When you find one that is big enough for you, click on it and start playing. 
  4. How to win Progressive jackpots online?

    Each progressive jackpot will have a different set of rules for winning the jackpot. Most games have a winner selected at random, although you can increase your odds of winning by placing large bets. Other games are dependent on getting the right symbols on the board, while others have bonus features that culminate with a progressive jackpot win.

    There is no set timetable for major progressive jackpots to pay out a winner, although just like slot games, they can be hot or cold. Hot meaning it will pay out two or three a year while a cold machine can go a year or two in between winner.
  8. Are progressive jackpots random?

    Yes. Winners are either selected at random or payout when the jackpot symbols are on the reels.

    There is no way to tell when a mega jackpot will hit. You can find the payout history for progressive jackpots and see if you find a pattern of how often it pays out, but it’s not an exact science.

With daily jackpots and max limits, while you won’t know exactly when it will payout, you can get a pretty good idea based on the time of day or current jackpot total.
