Improve your chances of Winning a Progressive Jackpot
Date: February 26, 2013
Although there are no actual proven methods that you can use to help you win a progressive jackpot, there are several things that you should know before you attempt to play for one of these jackpots. Every time you play on a progressive jackpot game, whether it is a slot, video poker, card game, table game or any other game, you should really take five minutes to go through the rules for that game. These rules may be located in the paytable. If not, they should be in a section labelled simply as ‘rules’, ‘help’, or ‘game info’.
Some online slots for example require you to be betting max to be in with a chance of winning that game’s jackpot. If it is a table game, the rules may state that you must be betting the ‘AA’ bet or ‘Side Bet’ to have a chance of winning the jackpot. These requirements will vary a great deal from one casino to the next and also from one game to the next.
You don’t want to play on a progressive jackpot game for months before you realise the requirements for that particular game, otherwise you could have been playing in vain. Also, if you are playing on a progressive jackpot slot, you won’t ever be able to win the main pot if you are playing with less than the full amount of paylines active per spin.
So if the slot has 50 winning paylines and you only have 40 of those paylines activated per spin, there is no chance you will be able to win the jackpot. These are just some of the things that you should know prior to launching a progressive jackpot game.
