Recent industry reports indicate that progressive slots are becoming quite popular in online casinos this year. More people playing slot machines are pushing for greater jackpot amounts and greater jackpot amounts are attracting even more players. Online casino jackpot payouts are skyrocketing this year and this is great news for slot fans.

progressive jackpotThis is how progressive jackpots work: The value of the jackpot increases every time a game is played and as every player is contributing, one large combined jackpot is formed. Casinos display the jackpot money counter prominently in the slot machine area, and online casinos have a ticker displayed on your screen. A player can win the jackpot only by hitting the winning combination of symbols and at that time the counter is reset and the money starts accumulating from zero again.

It is always more fun playing slots knowing that there is a chance of a BIG score. So next time you play a slot machine, look for the one that has the biggest jackpot. You never know. It could be you walking away from the casino with a big bag of money, or walking away from your computer with some extra zeros in your bank account. Good luck!
