Hitting the Jackpot with Progressive Slot Machines


Going For the Million plus Payback

Progressive slot machines offer jackpots that are larger than flat top machines. In some cases, these jackpots are huge and the payback can change a player's life. While the paybacks and jackpots are large, they are large for a reason. The chances or odds of winning the mega jackpot or payback are smaller than on flat top slots. Everyone however, wants to win a huge jackpot on online slot machines. Below you will find all you need to know about playing to win the large jackpots available on progressive slot machines.

Why Jackpots Are So Large

Progressive machines are a group of several online slot machines linked together. A percentage of the money played on each machine is added together to make up the jackpot. Anyone hitting the winning symbols on any machines in the network can win the jackpot. The fact the jackpot is fed by so many online slot machines allows the payback to be huge but also decreases the odds of success due to the jackpots size.

The Odds of Hitting the Jackpot

The odds of hitting the jackpot on some progressives are 20, 30 or even 40,000,000 to one! As a player its fun and exciting to know that you play for such a huge jackpot, but unless lady luck smiles on you, the odds are very slim that you will walk away with a huge payback after playing. Each player must decide how much of their bankroll they want to risk on these online slot machines where the odds of success are so low.

If you are looking to maximize your casino playing time and bankroll, it is best to limit your play on these machines or avoid them altogether and play flat top slots. Many players however, want the excitement of playing a progressive. Therefore, do so, but be sensible with how much of your bankroll you want to, or can risk playing. Most online slot players are tempted to gamble more than they should, especially when the jackpot can get so high.

Playing Progressive Slot Machines

Allocate some fun bankroll: Don't expect to win the jackpot when playing online progressive machines. Set aside some fun bankroll and be prepared to lose. Play no more than you have allocated as your fun bankroll. Be prepared to lose, but remember someone has to win the jackpot and it could be you.

You have to play maximum coins: It only takes one spin WITH MAXIMUM COINS played, but you must play maximum coins. If you aren't going to play maximum coins, you should not play progressive slot machines, because you are not going to win the mega jackpot, which really should be the whole point of playing a progressive slot machine in the first place.

Go for the biggest progressive slots jackpots: Progressive slots generally advertise a running tally of how much you stand to win in the jackpot. If you are playing for fun and not expecting to win, you may as well play for the biggest jackpots, so compare a few before you play.
