Progressive jackpot slots

Slots boasting progressive jackpots – significantly large winnable prize-pools which are fed and accumulate by real money spins across a network of casino sites – are typically the best games for real money players. Here’s an overview of a few of our favourites, which are the biggest money-makers on the Web.

Mega Moolah

Mega Moolah progressive jackpot real money slotsOne of the largest progressive jackpot games available to play on the Internet, and created by Microgaming, is playable only within real money mode across a host of different reputable online and mobile casino websites. Each time a player spins the reels, a portion of his or her wager goes toward the jackpot total. When someone triggers the bonus round and manages to hit the mega jackpot on the jackpot wheel, that player wins the entire prize pool and the mega jackpot resets at its base level (in the Mega Moolah game, the base level of the mega jackpot is $1,000,000).

Players will have the best chance of triggering the random bonus round to get a shot at winning the mega, major, minor and mini jackpots, if they place the maximum wager per spin, which is only $6.25.

Mega Fortune

Designed by gaming developer Net Entertainment, Mega Fortune rivals Mega Moolah in terms of the size of its largest jackpot, which typically reaches heights of around $6,000,000, and actually holds the Guinness World Record for the largest ever payout from an online slots game – a cool €17,861,813.

A five-reel, three-row and 25 payline video slots title which features scatter wins, free spins, wild substitutes and a triple jackpot bonus game, players will reach the bonus game when three or more ‘bonus wheel’ icons appear on an active payline within the base game.

The chance to win a jackpot (of which there are three), correlates positively with the jackpot size and the player’s bet size. The maximum wager per spin is $50 (a $0.50 coin utilised for all 25 paylines, played at the highest bet level).

Cosmic Fortune

Another classic from Net Entertainment, Cosmic Fortune boasts no less than five separate prize pools to be won once you reach the jackpot round – the Rapid (fixed), Mini (fixed), Midi (progressive), Major (progressive) and Mega (progressive). Cosmic Fortune pays homage to the early arcade-style games such as Space Invaders, Asteroids and Galaxian, Cosmic Fortune in a modern and visually compelling way. The minimum wager per spin is $0.75 and the maximum bet is $75.00. Cosmic Fortune is a 15 payline and five-reel interactive slots title.

Basic Instinct

Based on the 1992 movie of the same name – the neo-noir erotic thriller starring Michael Douglas and Sharon Stone – this classic video slot (desktop and mobile compatible) from iSoftBet is a 243 ways game, and boasts an accumulative jackpot (within the ‘Click Me’ feature), stacked and bonus stacked wilds, free spins and other dynamic features, including actual footage from the movie itself. Fans of the film should certainly give this title a shot. Holds a $0.50 minimum bet and a $50 maximum wager (per spin).

Glam Life

One of the first released 3D slots from BetSoft Gaming, Glam Life remains one of the most popular of the software designer catalogue of games, largely due to its attractive progressive jackpot prize, the fact it owns three distinct bonus rounds (including the jackpot round), as well as a free spins feature and a wide ranging betting limit – from as low as $0.02 and as high as $125.00.

While the game, because of its earlier development, doesn’t boast the same strong graphics and visuals like more recent BetSoft titles such as The Slotfather or Mamma Mia (which can be played at www.LeoVegas.com), its simple yet compelling nature, along with the unobtrusive background music makes it a strong candidate for real money players searching for those big wins.

Other online and mobile video slots games

We’ve chosen one additional slot title which we think rivals some of the best progressive jackpot games which have been released over the course of the online gambling industry’s short history.

Aliens slot game

Based on James Cameron’s 1986 science-fiction, action, horror blockbuster of the same name, this is one of our favourite slot games for desktop, mobile and tablet gamers, as you play through three unique and frightening levels – The Search, The Encounter and The Hive – multiplying wins as you progress.

Win up to 240 times your initial wager (per spin) once you reach the queen’s hive, and enjoy numerous innovative gameplay, bonus and wild features such The Alien Activity Metre, pulse rifles, grenades, a smart-gun, the Hive Health Metre, an Ammo Clip Counter and more.

The epic graphics, visuals and soundtrack are just as intense as they movie, and the interactivity is brilliant – the player attempts to kill off the Aliens within a first-person shooter mode, similar to that of nostalgic console and computer games like Doom, Half Life and Golden Eye. A five-reel and 15 payline masterpiece, there are 10 fixed bet levels for each payline, with coin sizes ranging from $0.01 to $1.00 (allowing for minimum and maximum stakes per spins of $0.15 through to $150.00).
