Some of the best online casino games are the ones with Progressive Jackpots to play for. A Progressive Jackpot is basically an accumulating prize pool which has no fixed top amount. Progressive pokies are among the most popular games that you can find in any Australian online casino and the biggest jackpots often climb well in to the millions of dollars.
When playing on a progressive jackpot pokie, a small fraction of each stake will automatically be added to the main progressive jackpot and one individual jackpot can be connected to vast networks of more than 100 online casinos. For example, the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot pokie from Microgaming can be found in more than 230 different Microgaming casinos.
You can therefore see how these prizes can climb to such vast amounts in a relatively short period of time, because millions of players are all vying for the same jackpot and contributing towards the main pot throughout the day. When a lucky player wins a progressive jackpot, that prize pool will then automatically reset to its original seed amount and it will instantly start to climb again as each player takes a spin. The seed amount will vary a great deal from one jackpot pokie to the next and it usually doesn’t take long for the jackpot to reach a healthy amount again.
Microgaming has paid out millions in prize winnings since its progressive jackpot network was created and Australian players can now find a total of 26 progressive jackpot games from within the download client at any Microgaming powered casino. The majority of these games are jackpot pokies, but you can also find Progressive Caribbean Draw Poker, SupaJax (video poker), Triple 7’s, Roulette Royale, Jackpot Deuces, Poker Ride and Cyberstud Poker.
Microgaming’s most famous progressive jackpot pokies include The Dark Knight Rises, Treasure Nile, Mega Moolah and Major Millions. Also, some of Microgaming’s jackpot pokies are available as 3 reel classic pokies or as 5 reel video pokies. These games include Fruit Fiesta, Cash Splash, Major Millions, Wowpot and LotsaLoot.
The other great progressive pokies from Microgaming include King Cashalot, Mega Moolah 5 Reel Drive, Mega Moolah Isis, Mega Moolah Summertime, Tunzamunni and Major Millions MegaSpin (which is also known as MegaSpin Progressive Major Millions). You will also find that today’s Progressive Jackpot Pokies are usually only available in the real money mode and NOT in the free play mode.
To be in with more of a chance of scooping a progressive jackpot, you should always bet the max with each spin. It doesn’t mean that you have to spend AU$200 per spin, it just means that you should always play with the full amount of paylines active. Some people have won millions of dollars from just as AU$0.25 cent spin.
The best thing to do when you play on a progressive jackpot pokie for the first time would be to launch the paytable just to see how you can improve your chances of netting the ‘big one’.
