Progressive Slot Machines

“When we enter a casino, the whole world undergoes a major change". Zen and the Art of Casino Gambling (1995)

The banks of slot machines that you see as you step into a casino have gained many millions of loyal gamblers over the years, yet not always did they satisfy every kind of gambler. While some enjoy the relaxing nature of playing the slots, others find it somewhat monotonous and boring due to its repetitive nature, and often lengthy process. For those that like a little more action now and then, playing progressive slot machines is definitely the ultimate. It's very easy to identify progressive slot machines on the casino floor - just look for the bright, neon tickers that display the current jackpot, which is continually increasing as the slots are being played.

Due to their overwhelming success, today you can also find progressive slot machines at online casinos (including those advertising here). They operate in very much the same way as those that you would find at land casinos. Online casinos that offer progressives will usually have some sort of display (a colourful ticker) on their webpage that shows the current jackpot as it increases.

If you’re wondering how these online progressive slot machines work, in most cases, all the progressives are hooked up to one jackpot, which will increase with each play. The increase is usually by a fraction of what is put into the machines. Naturally, the longer you play the more you stand a chance of winning – that is, if somebody else doesn’t beat you to it. The jackpot keeps growing until some lucky player hits it, at which point it is reset to its original starting jackpot amount. At this point it can be a bit disappointing to see it drop back to the starting amount; especially if you were busy playing at the time it was hit. Don’t be too deterred though, a progressive can be hit at any point in its cycle, whether it has been reset recently or not.
