Progressive Slots are one of the most enticing offerings in the online and traditional casino industries. Offering the chance at truly gargantuan jackpots, it’s no wonder that avid Slots players have been chasing after them for years.

JackpotCity is your premier online casino destination to enjoy the incredible winnings offered by progressive jackpots. Let’s take a look at just what progressive jackpots are and some tips for playing them.

Regular Slots Vs. Progressive Slots

We’re no strangers to Slots at JackpotCity online casino. With over 500 casino games to choose from we have more than enough to satisfy new and old players alike. However, it is important to note that while we do offer hundreds of title to choose from, not every title offers progressive jackpots. This doesn’t mean those titles won’t be enjoyable, but keep in mind that progressive games by far carry the largest jackpots.

What Are Progressive Slots?

How do progressive jackpots work? A certain percentage of each bet that a player makes is rolled into a large sum of money. This sum is often displayed at the top of the machine to entice players to try their luck.  While most Slots jackpots are fixed, progressive jackpots continue to grow until someone eventually wins it.

In some traditional casinos, operators will put an entire bank of slots together and have all of them feeding into one massive progressive jackpot. This also happens in an online casino Canada where operators will feed a percentage of all the instances of a certain game into one grand prize.

Progressive jackpots are awarded on a random basis. This means that there is no strategy you can enact to increase the odds of a jackpot hitting. However, there are strategies you can try that will get you the most bang for your bet and ensure you play long enough to benefit in the long run. The more time you spend playing, the more chances you’ll have at landing a progressive jackpot.

Budgeting for Progressive Betting

In order to help pay for these big wins, operators often require a larger or even maximum bet in order for the player to stand a chance to win the progressive jackpot. This means that, most of the time, placing the lowest bet possible on the machine is not going to allow you to qualify to hit it big.

So, if you want to play in the high stakes game of progressive jackpots, you must first budget for it. If you’ve only got ten spins on a slot at the minimum bet, then it might be better to take those ten at the minimum bet than a single spin at the max bet. Even though it’s going to mean you won’t qualify for the progressive jackpot, there’s a chance that you could win a lesser amount that you could then apply to spinning for the big win.

If you’re new to our casino then you might also want to use your Jackpot City bonus from signing up as a means of funding your betting.

Playing the Highest RTP Available

Bigger bets can potentially mean bigger losses, and as soon as you’re out of money, the fun stops and so does your chance of hitting it big. For this reason, a player should look for machines with the highest RTP when going after progressive slots.

RTP, or return to player, is a term that casinos use to explain the percentage off all money wagered at a slot machine that will be paid back to players over a period of time. For example, if a player makes one hundred on dollar bets on a slot machine that has a ninety five per cent RTP, the player could expect to get back about ninety five dollars in wins. The higher the RTP, the more money you get back as a player.

Avoiding the Gamble Feature

On most machines, the gamble feature is a double or nothing bet that the player will be able to guess the correct card colour of the next playing card displayed by the machine. It is offered to players after a win. As tempting as it might be try your luck, a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. If you’ve already managed to win a decent bit of money, rather put that towards your goal of winning the progressive jackpot than risk losing all of it in one click of a button.

Follow these tips and you’ll have as good a chance as anyone at winning that big progressive jackpot.
