Everything you need to know about progressive jackpots!

Your complete guide to progressive jackpots

For several years, the progressive jackpots feature has continued to electrify online casino players, primarily on slot machines, taking them into a world filled with excitement. Progressive jackpots are distinctly different from fixed jackpots.

Mastering the workings of progressive jackpots is essential, and at Casino King, we detail for you in this article the mechanism of these jackpots, tips, as well as the best games that feature this functionality.

How do progressive jackpots work?

The mechanics are easy to understand; indeed, whenever a player bets on a slot machine offering a progressive jackpot, it automatically climbs until one of the jackpots is randomly triggered, making a lucky winner.

This type of jackpot offers the opportunity to win substantial sums. Furthermore, given that these slot machines are popular, the jackpot amount increases considerably, which means that one of the jackpots can be won quickly.

After a player has won one of the jackpots, it automatically resets to a relatively low starting amount. This amount will increase again as players place bets on the participating slot machines until it is won again, and the cycle repeats accordingly.

What is the difference between a classic jackpot and a progressive jackpot?

There are slot machines that offer individual jackpots capable of reaching impressive sums. These jackpots, also called "non-progressive" or "fixed," are predetermined by the game provider, meaning that players know the maximum amount they can win from the start.

For progressive jackpots, a different system has been implemented, adopted by game providers such as Amusnet or RedPanda. Indeed, the jackpot amount is not predetermined at the outset. Each game played contributes to increasing the total jackpot amount.

The best progressive jackpot games

At Casino King, we offer a variety of progressive jackpot slot machines that are must-plays. Here are some popular titles:

Is it possible to play progressive jackpot games for free?

You can absolutely try out progressive jackpot games in demo mode. This way, you have the opportunity to dive into the action without initially risking any real money and experience an equally thrilling experience with virtual credits as you would with real money.

However, when you play in demo mode on Casino King, it's important to note that it's not possible to win the progressive jackpot. If you aspire to hit the big jackpot, you'll need to wager real money to try your luck.
