Lesson 16

Progressive Jackpots

Progressive jackpots are used in gaming machines (specifically, slots) and mean that the value of the jackpot increases by a small amount each time a game is played.

Gaming machines are linked to one of these progressive jackpots and several players are playing for the same prize and increase the size of that prize each time they participate.

How to Win a Progressive Jackpot

Instead of the normal situation where slot machines have their jackpot listed as a monetary value, which can only be won by achieving the combination with the highest payoff, progressive jackpots keep accumulating by a small amount each time the game is played.

They usually require a higher playing credit in order to be eligible for the prize jackpot, but much, much higher amounts can be won.

So, with progressive jackpots, when playing slot machines you have the advantage of playing for a larger jackpot than that of normal slots and the more people that play, the greater that ultimate prize will be.

In any case, if slots are your game of choice, it might be worth playing a few times with progressive jackpots to see what the craze is all about and whether or not you prefer it.
