Anyone would love to win huge in jackpot slots! Before doing so, however, you would need to understand exactly what a jackpot slot is exactly and how can you hit a jackpot.
An average casino player probably already knows about the difference between the regular video slots and the jackpot slots, but you would also need to differentiate between the progressive jackpot slots and non-progressive jackpot slots if you wish to get that juicy win!
As it’s indicated in the name, the jackpot in a progressive jackpot slot is continuously increasing the more people play a specific slot. The jackpot can easily increase to a million dollars prize as time ticks on and will continue to rise until someone triggers the payout feature.
Once a casino player hits a jackpot, the prize resets and the process will begin again with the jackpot prize starting from zero. BetAmo proudly hosts a decent library of progressive jackpot slots that are available to its customers and here are some of the popular names:
Mega Moolah is definitely the ‘king’ of progressive jackpot slots as this Microgaming slot has been giving out huge jackpots over the past few years. One British casino player won the biggest jackpot at Mega Moolah slot five years ago, as he managed to hit a record win of ₤13.2 million whilst he was playing at 25p per spin on a mobile casino.
The most recent Mega Moolah win in Canada came in 2015, when a player won CAD $7,561,773, though it is not clear how large were his bets per each spin.
Now let’s talk a little bit about the non-progressive jackpot slots that are usually offering smaller payout amount, but a bit more frequent than the progressive ones.
The non-progressive jackpot slots, also known as fixed jackpot slots, usually need to be triggered before paying out a big win. The jackpot can be triggered on any slot machine with the jackpot symbol during the normal spins or even during the free spins bonus round. In comparison with the progressive jackpot slots, the non-progressive ones will have the same jackpot price regardless of how long it goes between jackpots. Here are a couple of non-progressive slots that you can play at BetAmo:
Now that we have explained the differences between the progressive jackpot slots and non-progressive jackpot slots, let’s move to the next subjects of interest for the casino players such as: how often does a slot machine hits jackpot or how to win a progressive slot jackpot.
First of all, there are some myths about specific strategies that help you land a big jackpot. Our honest opinion is these myths are completely false despite the fact that some people are claiming that you need to bet the maximum amount per hand in order to hit the biggest jackpot in an online casino. The odds of winning the jackpot on a slot machine game are similar to the ones of winning the lottery. All you need is to know your budget and, most importantly, to have a fortune of luck on your side.
It doesn’t matter how you play the slot or the amount of your bet per spin. That has been proven with the guys that have won some of the biggest jackpots in the online gaming history by playing on 25p per spin or 25 cents per spin.
Some online casinos offer the players some info on the last time that a jackpot has been hit, as this is informative and lets you gives you an idea of your chances of hitting a jackpot. For example, BetAmo’s Mega Moolah jackpot slot is now up to €6,112,909.32, which means it has been a while since someone landed the jackpot.
To be fair, it’s much easier to ‘read’ when a slot is close to hitting a jackpot in a land-based casino than in an online casino. That’s because in some real casinos, the owners advertise when the maximum amount of the jackpot is close enough to be paid out.
Unfortunately, it’s hard to know when any of the progressive jackpot slots online will payout, as they usually do so whenever the random spin generator calculates it’s the right time to pay.
As we have already mentioned before, there is no way to know when the jackpot is going to payout. You can do some research and try to seek some paying ‘patterns’, but all of the payouts are just random.
For example, the Mega Moolah jackpot slot, which we used an example, dropped the jackpot four times in a row in 2016 and it happened every 70 days on average. Meanwhile, in 2017, there were 13 different winners landing the Mega Moolah jackpot and the space between the winnings was just a month. However, we still can’t determine when a jackpot is likely to payout.
To sum up, it’s up to you if you choose to play jackpot slots or not, but our best advice is to consider the RTP of a slot and to stay on top of your bankroll. At the end of the day, there are fewer strategies involved compared to the table games like blackjack, baccarat or video poker.
