Online Progressive Jackpot Slots games are similar to traditional slot machines, because the amount of this Jackpot not fixed, but instead growing progressively as players place their bets. Theoretically, there is no upper limit to the Jackpot amount as it depends on players’ contributions to progressively increase the value in the pot.
Many Progressive Jackpot Slots games start with a minimum jackpot value, ensuring that there will always be a tempting prize to play for. For example, the Progressive Jackpot of the Mega Moolah Slot Machine is always set to a minimum value of 1 million Dollars/Euros and only increases thereafter.
Often, players’ contributions are shared by several games, meaning that the Jackpot value can increase quickly even if not many people are playing that particular game. When someone wins a Jackpot, all the money in the pot will be sent to the winning player’s account. At this point, the Jackpot of the game is readjusted to the minimum amount once again, although it won’t stay at that value for long.
