Big Online Casino Jackpots Keep ComingPublished January 8, 2013 by OCR Editor
Don't hesitate, jump on the Money Train for all the biggest gambling prizes on offer.
Online casinos are creating a record number of millionaires, by dealing out massive winnings on progressive jackpot games. It's natural for people to think they won't be the lucky winner, but new winners are created every week, and even for those who don't hit the jackpot there are great supplementary prizes.
The great thing about these progressive games is that they can be found almost anywhere. Most players prefer playing them at their favorite online casino site, but others find they enjoy giving it a shot in between bingo or poker games - and this is often when the jackpots are hit.
Top jackpots of 2012
Progressive jackpots created more millionaires than ever in 2012. Even as the year drew to a close they were still pumping out the prizes - just ask the lucky man from Lincolnshire, England, who cashed in £5.883 million while playing Microgaming's 5-reel, 243 Ways to Win Dark Knight Slot.
Having said that, none of the 2012 wins were able to eclipse the largest ever online slots jackpot prize. Guinness World Records recognizes a €11.74 million prize struck on the Mega Fortune progressive jackpot slot in September 2011 as the greatest win of them all.
What to watch this year
Believe it or not, Mega Fortune Progressive Jackpot is likely to break that world record soon. At time of writing, the NetEnt 5-reel, 25-payline slot game had hit the 15 million euro mark, and online casino players from around the world were excitedly waiting for it to smash its old record.
The great thing about progressive jackpots like Mega Fortune is that even when they are hit, the jackpot starts rising again. So don't despair if you don't hit it this time around - who knows, you might be the lucky winner next time.
Top progressives of 2013
Millionaire Genie is shaping up as one of the top progressive titles of the year, with prizes regularly exceeding $3 million. Available at 888, Casino-on-Net and a number of other sites, the game itself is a fairy simple three-reel slot with a standard - but massive - system of payouts.
Mega Moolah is another constant favorite for customers of the casinos that use the Microgaming Progressive Network. One can find it at All Slots Casino, Bet-at.EU Casino, Jackpot City Casino and Red Flush Casino, among others.
