Progressive FAQ (Frequently asked Questions)
Below is a series of frequently asked questions with regards to progressive online casino jackpots we've put together for our visitors on PHP Cafe.
What is a Progressive Jackpot?
A Progressive Jackpot is an accumulating prize pool. Each time you place a wager on a progressive jackpot game, a small percentage of that stake is added towards the main pot.
Do I need to be Betting Max to Win a Progressive Jackpot?
Not all progressive jackpot games require you to be betting max to be in with a chance of winning the pot, however some rules state that the higher you are spending per spin (or per hand), the greater your chances of winning the progressive jackpot will be. The latest record-breaking jackpot winner from Helsinki was spending just €0.25 per spin on a slot when he netted himself a cool €17.8 million.
Are there any Strategies that can Help me Win a Progressive Jackpot?
No. All games are random, so no matter what kind of system you may have heard of, there is no proven one that will actually help you win a Progressive Jackpot.
What Games have the Largest Progressive Jackpots?
The jackpot games with the largest prizes tend to be Progressive Jackpot video slots.
What Happens if I Win a Progressive Jackpot?
Depending on the actual amount that you have won, that win may then need to be verified, especially if it is more than $/€/£1,000,000.00. Once verified, the funds should appear in your account as available balance. You may also be appointed an accounts manager or someone to advice you on how best to withdraw your new found wealth.
What is the Best Progressive Jackpot Game?
This will all depend on the which type of game you generally prefer playing, but progressive jackpot slots seem to be the most popular and especially the ones from Microgaming, Playtech and NetEnt.
What if I Win a Progressive Jackpot but my Computer Crashes?
This would be very unfortunate, but the system should recognise that you won and when you are next able to log in, the winnings should appear as available balance.
Can I Practice on a Jackpot Game in the Free Play Mode?
Not all Progressive Jackpot games are available to practice on in the free play demo mode, however each casino is different and this fun mode therefore may be available.
What Should I know about Progressive Jackpots?
If you are playing on a progressive jackpot slot, you normally have to be paying the full amount of paylines per spin to be in with a chance of winning, so if the slot that you are playing on has 25 paylines but you are only playing with 10 active lines per spin, you won't be able to scoop the jackpot.
