WagerWorks doesn’t have a large progressive jackpot selection, but they do have a progressive jackpot that starts at $1,5 million and tends to grow really big before it pays out. At the time of writing, WagerWorks MegaJackpot is right below $5,3 millions. This jackpot is fed by three different slot machines: MegaJackpots Cleopatra, MegaJackpots Cluedo and MegaJackpots Monopoly with Pass Go Bonus.
If you win the WagerWorks MegaJackpot, you will not get all the money at once. Instead, you will be paid once a year for 20 years. The first installment is given to you right away. You can chose to get a lump sum right away instead if you prefer, but if you do you will only get a reduced amount of the jackpot (the present value of the 20 installments).
