Show me the money!!! If you are an online casino gambler and you want to know where the big money is, the answer is in the progressive slot machines. How Do Progressive Online Slot Machines Work?
To understand progressive slot machines, you must first understand that Wild Jack is but one of many online casinos that use Microgaming casino software. In a progressive slots game, all of the Microgaming casinos in the world are electronically linked. Any time anyone plays the progressive slots game at any Microgaming casino, more money gets added into the pot. As you might imagine, with all of those online slots players at all of those online casinos, the jackpot grows pretty rapidly. In fact, part of the fun of the progressive online slot machine is simply watching as the wheels of the jackpot meter constantly turn as the jackpot constantly get bigger.
Like other online slot machines, progressive slot machines come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. There are 3-reel and 5-reel progressive slot machines, with different numbers of paylines, with scatter symbols and multipliers, and with all different kinds of symbols based on the theme of the particular slots game. And as with other online slots games, there are many ways to win and many different prizes besides the progressive jackpot.
Progressive online slots are played just like any other online slots game. First you select your coin size (unless the game has a fixed-value coin), you select the number of paylines, and you select the number of coins per payline. Then you click the Spin button and hope for the best.
Most progressive online slots games have a very important rule: You must bet the maximum number of coins in order to be eligible for the progressive jackpot. Do not overlook this rule. It would be a terrible shame to get the right symbols lined up in the right order and think you have won a huge jackpot, only to find out that you were not eligible. The best progressive slots strategy is simply to click the Bet Max button as soon as you log onto the game. Then you won't have to worry about it.
Don't be intimidated by the idea that Bet Max means you must bet a lot of money to play progressive slots. In fact, the betting requirements are quite low. In King Cashalot, for example, Bet Max means bet 45 coins, but each coin is only 0.05 credits, so the maximum bet is only 2.25 credits. That is certainly not a high wager, especially in relation to the huge progressive jackpot at stake.
("Credits" means the unit of currency with which you are gambling. So "2.25 credits" means 2.25 dollars, 2.25 pounds, or 2.25 Euros. The progressive jackpots are also measured in credits, so a million-credit jackpot means you can win a million dollars, a million pounds, or a million Euros, depending on which currency you are using in your online casino account.)
Once you have clicked Bet Max and then clicked Spin, the rules for winning the progressive jackpot are different in each game. In King Cashalot 5-Reel, you need five King symbols on the ninth enabled payline. In Tunzamunni 3-Reel, you need a White Seven symbol on the first reel, a Red Seven symbol on the second reel, and a Blue Seven symbol on the third reel. The winning combination is clearly displayed on the screen of each game.
After some lucky slots gambler wins the progressive jackpot, the jackpot is re-set to the minimum for the particular game. Then the cycle starts again: People play the slots game and add money into the pot, the wheels turn as the progressive jackpot gets bigger and bigger, and eventually somebody wins again.
