Winning with Proprietary Progressive JackpotsPublished September 26, 2014 by OCR Editor
It may not be a million bucks, but a few hundred thousand dollars win is good enough for many players.
Slotland Casino is known for its proprietary games. It recently featured the new, retro-style “Grand Fortune” slot. A fruit machine slot game that has a feel of a jukebox from the 50s, Grand Fortune is a 5 reel, 15 payline game with a free spins feature, a 7x multiplier, an expanding wild, and mostly importantly – a progressive jackpot.
One may wonder, how big do progressive jackpots get with proprietary games? As progressive jackpots grow into huge numbers through a network with many players all competing for a jackpot at different casinos, it seems that it is a given that the progressive jackpots at Slotland don’t grow nearly as large as networked progressive jackpots like Mega Fortune or Major Millions.
$150 000 Jackpot
Grand Fortune’s jackpot is now at $150 000 – like most of the slot games at Slotland, Grand Fortune is tied to the site-wide progressive jackpot. It means that there are plenty of games sharing one jackpot – so players can play a multitude of different games and still have a chance of hitting it big. And although smaller, the jackpot gets hit more frequently.
Winning With a Different Logic
And it’s not a bad logic – although players are not eyeing a jackpot in the millions, they seem to be more than happy with this set up – a few extra hundred thousand dollars from out of the blue is significant enough to treat yourself nicely and to clear any debts, as a Canadian player who won $169 072 jackpot back in July, said “I guess I’ll go shopping, pay off my credit cards.” This particular player had been spinning for a little bit and with some small wins over $1000 before he hit the jackpot.
Other notable wins include an American father who won over $266 000 in Spring 2013, and a mobile player who won over $159 000 while playing on his iPhone in early 2014.
