Last week was an extraordinary time when online slots made two extremely lucky people multi-millionaires in the double blessing of progressive jackpots. On Friday, November 3, a very fortunate punter struck Net Entertainment’s Mega Fortune Mega Jackpot and took home an astounding €4,450,507 (c$6.6 million). Less than 24 hours later, someone else struck another Mega Jackpot playing Microgaming’s Mega Moolah video slot and won a whopping £3,478,874 (c$5.8 million) cash prize.
What are progressive jackpot slots?
Slots with a progressive jackpot will funnel a percentage of every wager placed on the game into the jackpot, growing its value until someone cashes it out. Because of this, the value progressive jackpots can reach is well up into the millions, especially with popular games like Mega Fortune and Mega Moolah. The largest jackpot payout in history by an online slot was by Mega Moolah in 2016 when Jon Heywood from the UK walked away with a staggering amount of c$22 million with a wager of less than c$0.50.
How do you win slots progressive jackpots?
Every slot has its own set of rules of how their progressive jackpots could be won. For Mega Fortune, you’ll have to first spin three or more bonus symbols on an active payline to activate the bonus feature where you’ll be faced with three wheels. You start spinning the outermost wheel in order to advance to the innermost wheel where the progressive jackpot lies. For Mega Moolah, you enter the Jackpot bonus round randomly while playing the base game. Turn the wheel and you’ll trigger the Mega Jackpot if the wheel lands on the paw print.
