Learn Online Casino Progressives
There are numerous different progressive jackpot games available online today and the only real difference between them and non-progressive jackpot games is the prize pool. A progressive jackpot is normally worth much more than a non-progressive jackpot. Each jackpot will start off with a ‘seed’ amount, which could be as little as $/€/£100 or it could be as much as $/€/£1,000,000.00. The jackpot will NEVER drop below this seed amount.
As each player plays on the game in the real cash mode, a small percentage of that stake will go towards the main jackpot, and this will accumulate until the main pot has been won. Depending on which game you are actually playing on will determine how you can actually win the jackpot.
For example, if you are playing progressive Cyberstud poker you may need to win the jackpot by being dealt a Royal Flush. This will probably be the same if you are playing on a progressive jackpot Video Poker. The Royal flush is the best hand that you can achieve in poker and it includes the following cards: 10, J, Q, K and A, all of the same suit.
If you are playing on a 5 reeled progressive jackpot slot, to win the jackpot you may need five of the highest valued symbols to appear across one of the active paylines from one spin, so for some players hitting a progressive jackpot can seem impossible, but remember that jackpots are won all of the time.
On modern video slots, the progressive jackpots can usually only be won from within a jackpot bonus round, which is triggered randomly from regular play. These bonus rounds generally take place away from the reels on a second screen and they usually just involve picking certain items to reveal hidden prizes. The jackpot bonus rounds generally guarantee some kind of prize, even if you don’t manage to scoop the progressive jackpot.
If you or any other player wins a progressive jackpot, you should receive your money instantly, but it could take up to 48 hours (or more) to retrieve your winnings because sometimes these huge wins need to be verified by the casino operator . The time that it takes to actually receive your winnings will also depend on which withdrawal method you are using. When a progressive jackpot has been won, it will automatically reset to its previously mentioned ‘seed’ amount and it will continue to grow until another lucky player wins.
