Two Golden Rules for Progressive JackpotsPublished October 12, 2009 by OCR Editor
Discover the two basic things you simply must be aware of in order to be in for the biggest of prizes.
Progressive slots are an online phenomenon. They accumulate prizes that take your breath away and draw you to try your luck.
Playing a progressive jackpot game, be it slots, blackjack, poker, roulette or any other variant, gives the punter that extra hunger to win. The sky high winnings make the stakes that much higher and add an extra dimension to any game.
Before you play, make sure you know the two golden rules. What are they?
1. Chasing the Big Ones
Each progressive jackpot slots machine has a meter displaying the level of the current jackpot. Once a jackpot has been won the meter is reset to a lower level and then gradually builds up. The meter displays the real time jackpot so to make sure that you play on a machine with a high jackpot, check out the meter display.
For non slots progressive bets and payout information, check out the standard payout table for all you need to know about progressive wagers.
To make things easy for you Online Casino Reports have a handy Money Train facility that displays jackpots from casinos around the world that are either building up at a high rate or are already showing a tantalizing figure.
You can use our progressive jackpot tracker to find out where the biggest online progressive games are being played. At the time of writing, the biggest jackpot displayed is for more than an eye watering $2 million, with the second coming in at over a whopping $1 million.
2. Don't Miss Out!
You may be playing on a slot machine with a massive jackpot and could well get the winning combination but if you don't press Max Bet and play on the highest stake the machine has to offer, then you are not eligible for the big prize.
The same goes for non slots jackpots - if you don't place the specific progressive jackpot bet then you will only be eligible for the standard payout, not the jackpot.
Progressive jackpots are fantastic fun and provide breathtaking games for punters. They add that extra zest that gets the heart pumping and soul yearning. Online or off, progressive jackpots give us all a thrill and for those lucky few, can literally prove to be a life-changing phenomenon.
