G'day Aussies, Kiwis, Yankees, Canooks, Orientals, Europeans and everyone else. Our previous feature on online casino slot jackpots was such a smashing success, we thought we would do it all over again, just as Christmas 2010 sneaks up on us. The good folks at PartyGaming, Virgin Games And Captain Cooks have caught the Christmas spirit, and have released a Santa bag of world class promotions, bonuses and even Christmas time themed slot games. Media Man and Gambling911 catch the Christmas spirit... reviewing online casino jackpots...
Gambling911 and man down under, Greg Tingle of Media Man International, once again take a close up look at the world of online casino slot jackpots. Slots and online slots are of course a game of chance (not skill as such), however they remain some of the planets most popular online games. Punters are known to search far and wide for the most attractive jackpots so in our wisdom we have whipped together an up-to-date snapshot of the sector for you.
Some of the popular progressive jackpot online slot games that are ready to pay out substantial jackpots are:
The Godfather (PartyGaming) - PartyCasino (Australian, Canadian, European and New Zealand players welcome)
Mega Fortune Wheel, Gone With The Wind, Melon Madness, Super Star, and more (PartyGaming)
Beach Life (Playtech) - Noble Casino, Casino Las Vegas, Casino King (Australian and Canadian players)
MegaJackpots (WagerWorks) - Virgin Casino (no American, Australian, New Zealand, Canadian players)
Mega Moolah (Microgaming) - Captain Cooks Casino, Golden Tiger Casino (Australian, Canadian, New Zealand and many other countries welcome). *Virgin Casino also offer it for European based customers
Mega Moolah currently has the 1 massive 1 million dollar plus jackpot available.
There are four online slot games networked to this progressive jackpot: Mega Moolah, 5 Reel Drive, Summertime and Mega Moolah Isis. The progressive jackpot can be hit playing any one of these and will any bet. The chances of hitting the jackpot are greater for larger amounts wagered.
Mega Moolah has a maximum wager of 125 coins per spin.
There are three smaller jackpots also offered in Mega Moolah.
Beach Life is running is currently sitting on approx 2.6 million. To hit the progressive jackpot on Beach life you need to wager the maximum bet, currently $10.
In Mega Moolah those who wager less than the maximum amount of $6.25 have some chance of getting the jackpot. However in Beach Life those who bet less than $10 per spin will not be eligible for the progressive jackpot.
MegaJackpots is currently running at approx 2.8 million. The WagerWorks network is based in the UK.
Microgaming and Playtech have a bigger customer base (wagering in euros and American dollars) hence MegaJackpots is likely to pay out more on an equated currency basis.
The slot games linked to the MegaJackpots network are Cleopatra, Monopoly with Pass GO Bonus, and Cluedo.
Media Man's current top picks for jackpots is PartyGaming's PartyCasino Party doesn't currently accept U.S players, but they are one again working to rectify the situation, having come to business terms with the U.S Government two years ago, to the tune of $100 million dollars we might add. That's show of financial strength from PartyGaming, not to show up Richard Branson's Virgin Games. Microgaming and Playtech are also understood to be financially solid in standing and have been in business for over a decade.
