Some online slot machine games feature a progressive jackpot, which means that every time a player has a spin on the machine, a small amount is contributed to a pool and when a player eventually hits the jackpot, they win the entire contents of the pool.
Online progressive jackpot slot machines are usually linked, meaning that several machines in one casino, or even multiple casinos, are all contributing to the jackpot at the same time, allowing it to progress quite quickly.

Where To Play
If you are looking to take home the jackpot you should aim for the big ones, for example the Mega Moolah jackpot available on the Microgaming casino network or the super popular Mega Fortune jackpot available on the Net Entertainment casino network.
In 2009 Georgios M, a small business owner from Greece, won €6,374,434 (approx $8.69m) on the Mega Moolah jackpot. Beating all previous Mega Moolah payouts, the player became the highest paid winner in online casino history at the time. Recently this record was broken by the Mega Fortune jackpot, when a lucky Norwegian player won an incredible €11 000 000 at Betsson casino!

Once a progressive jackpot has been won, the pool immediately begins to re-fill, but it doesn’t start from zero – there is always a designated amount of money contributed by the casino, which can range from hundreds to millions, depending on the slot machine.
The exact contribution to a slot machine’s progressive jackpot feature depends on the individual machine. As every slots game has its own unique payout percentage, the contributions to the progressive jackpot will obviously vary depending on the game. This accounts for the widely varying jackpot sizes from game to game.
To qualify for a progressive jackpot, a player must usually play at the maximum allowed stake. Although smaller stakes still contribute to the progressive jackpot, the majority of slots do not allow a player to win the progressive jackpot unless they are playing the maximum bet.
Progressive Jackpot Strategy
It is always worth looking around the various slot machine games and comparing the size of their progressive jackpots. After all, if your’re going for a jackpot you should aim high as the chances of winning it are low, but if you do you want to be heftily rewarded.
Monitoring the progression of several jackpots will stand you in good stead, as well playing as a team with friends or colleagues. With many players, the chances are greater that you will hit a jackpot, though of course, sharing it reduces your personal winnings. That said, it is surely preferable to have ten chances at winning $1,000,000, than to have a one chance at winning $10,000,000.
Another good idea is to take advantage of slot players clubs and loyalty schemes, which often refund a percentage of a slot player’s bets in the form of bonus cash, gadgets or slot machine credits. You need stamina to go for the jackpot and anything that helps you financially is to your advantage.
Good Luck at the slot machines!
