Progressive Jackpot Strategy and Tips

When considering progressive slot machines tips, it’s important to know that slots are games of chance. While you don’t need any special skills to win, there’s no harm in having a progressive slot machine strategy. It’s always wise to manage your bankroll effectively and prepare yourself for the worst-case scenario by placing bets that are in line with your budget. If you can make your bankroll last, you can keep playing longer and potentially hit the jackpot.

Keep in mind that in order to be eligible to win a progressive jackpot, you may be required to bet the maximum number of coins or lines. Always read the rules before spinning the reels for the first time to avoid any surprises.

One of the great things about playing online is that you’ll have instant access to dozens of massive jackpots. Just take a look at our tracker above. While most people prefer playing games with the largest jackpots, they don’t offer the best odds. The chances of winning a smaller prize are far better. Yet if you do play games like Mega Moolah, there are smaller progressive jackpots up for grabs too. If you prefer games with life-changing prizes, you’ll probably want to play a title that’s overdue to be won based on its track record.

Hitting the Jackpot with Progressive Slot Machines

If you follow the gambling headlines or keep tabs on progressive jackpot figures, it seems like millionaires are made every day. While it’s technically possible to hit the jackpot at any moment, big prizes like Mega Moolah are won every two months on average. Some titles like Mega Fortune and Jackpot Giant can take close to a year or more to be won. Of course, these jackpots keep rocketing to the stratosphere in the meantime.

Have you ever asked yourself how are progressive jackpots paid? Chances are you’ve spent more time fantasizing about how you’ll spend your newfound riches than the logistics of getting your cash. As you might expect, the timeframe and payment method may vary depending on the game at hand, size of your winnings, and the online casino. While many large jackpots are paid in annual installments spread out over a decade or more, some prizes including Microgaming’s Mega Moolah jackpot will be paid promptly in one lump sum.

If you happen to win a smaller sum, you can expect your winnings to be credited to your casino account instantly. Yet progressive jackpot winners who secure a record-shattering prize are more likely to be paid by courier, bank transfer, or in person within a matter of days. Don’t be surprised if the casino asks you to pose with a novelty-sized check.

Going Beyond Slots

While it’s hard to deny the popularity of progressive slots online, they’re not the only game in town. If you like the idea of hitting a growing jackpot, but don’t feel like taking the reels for a spin, you’ll want to take your virtual seat at a progressive table. Whether you love poker, blackjack, roulette, or video poker, there are ballooning jackpots waiting to be won

Progressive table games aren’t complicated. In all likelihood, you already know how to play since most progressive games use standard casino rules but add an optional side bet. If you’re wondering what is progressive in blackjack, that really depends on which version you play. In Microgaming’s Triple Sevens progressive blackjack, you’ll hit the jackpot if your first three cards are all 7 of diamonds. Other versions will reward you if your first four cards are aces of the same suit. Of course, there are smaller bonus prizes for other card combinations and you can win your main bet regardless. Just keep in mind that you’ll need to place a $1 side bet on top of your standard wager to qualify.

When playing most versions of progressive roulette, you’ll win your side bet if the same number comes up multiple times in a row. Some versions do feature a dedicated bonus slot on the wheel and an accompanying bonus round instead. Progressive video poker usually awards a growing jackpot for the top hand with a maximum bet.

Progressive Jackpots FAQs

What are progressive slots?

Progressive slots are like normal slot games but with one massive difference, there's a huge jackpot up for grabs. You can win millions on one spin of the reels and it's this giant jackpot potential that makes progressive slots such a hit with players at both land-based and online casinos.

How do they work?

All progressive jackpot slots work in a similar way to one another. Every time any player clicks ‘spin', a percentage of their stake goes into the jackpot pool. The progressive jackpot carries on growing, getting bigger and bigger, until one lucky player wins it.
How you actually win the jackpot can vary from game to game but most slots have a special Jackpot Bonus Game where your progressive jackpot win will be revealed.

How do you play a slot machine?

Playing progressive slots is identical to playing normal, non-jackpot slots. All you have to do is select how many lines you want to bet on, what your bet will be and then spin the reels.
Jackpot Bonus Games also work like most other bonus games and you will usually have to spin a wheel or ‘click and pick' to see what you've won.

Are they better than standard slot games?

If you're looking to win big, then yes. Standard slots have the potential to payout tens of thousands of pounds in winnings but progressive jackpot slots regularly pay out over £5 million.
Progressive slots offer you the chance to win a life-changing amount of cash in a matter of seconds, whereas a standard slot only gives you the chance to win a maximum prize of up to 100,000x your bet.

Are they worth playing?

Definitely. Progressive slots add an extra element of excitement to players' real money gaming sessions because the opportunity to become a millionaire is always on the table.

What are the odds like?

The odds of winning on a progressive slot are pretty much the same as the odds of winning the lottery but the big difference is that you have way more chances to hit a progressive slot jackpot.
That's because of the amount of spins you can take during a gaming session. Unlike the lottery where you buy a ticket (or maybe 10 if you're really serious), in a progressive slot you can fit hundreds of spins into an hour and that means hundreds of unique opportunities to pocket a fortune.

Which games are better or more popular?

Without a doubt, the most popular online progressive slot game is Mega Moolah. The slot is made by the Microgaming software company and offers the largest jackpot in the world.
Microgaming and NetEnt software have a whole host of different jackpot slots and they're all well-known for paying out record breaking amounts of cash. If you look at the list of the biggest jackpot payouts above, you'll notice that all of them are produced by either NetEnt or Microgaming.

What are the biggest jackpots?

The Mega Moolah progressive slot has four jackpots attached to it and the biggest one, the Mega jackpot, is the largest and has previously grown to over £13 million.
The Mega Fortune jackpot slot has 3 progressive jackpots to hunt down, the largest can climb as high as €17.8 million.
The Arabian Nights progressive slot from NetEnt has also be known to payout more than €8 million.

How often do progressive jackpots hit?

On average, the biggest Mega Fortune jackpot is hit every 5 weeks and the Mega Fortune jackpot goes every 11 weeks.

How do I win at slot machines?

There is no magic formula for winning a progressive slot jackpot, all you need is luck and determination.
Whenever you play any kind of slot game there is no guarantee of winning but with a progressive slot, when the win comes it could be really huge. Remember that the more spins you take, the more chances you'll have to scoop those millions for yourself!
