Players can literally find hundreds of different progressive jackpot games online today and some of the very best ones have been developed by leading online casino software providers like Playtech, Microgaming and Net Entertainment. The jackpot games from Microgaming and Playtech can either be launched instantly in your browser or from within a perfectly secure download client and the ones from NetEnt can all be launched instantly, no download required.
Many of these jackpot games are only available in the real money mode. However, you may be lucky to find an online casino which also has these games available in the free play mode. To be in with a chance of winning a jackpot on any of these slot machines, you generally need to be betting max and with the full amount of paylines active per spin.
This doesn’t meant that you have to spend $/€/£250 per spin like a high roller would. You can spend from as little as $/€/£0.10 on some slots to be in with a chance of hitting a progressive jackpot, but if the slot has 25 winning paylines, play each spin with all 25 paylines active and not with just 5 or 10 paylines active.
To find out how you can win a progressive jackpot, the best thing to do when you launch a progressive jackpot game would be to head straight to the paytable. This area will explain everything you need to know. You will also find that some progressive jackpot slot machines also have more than one jackpot to play for. Some progressive slots have up to as many as five or more accumulating prize pools to play for.
