The Best Progressive Jackpot Slots Out There!

The Best Progressive Jackpot Slots Out There!
26.11.2019 • by Patrik Andersson

Beginners and pros alike, we all love video slots with progressive jackpots. The notion of being able to hit that jackpot and win a life-changing amount of money is the biggest appeal when it comes to slot machines. We have all heard stories about people making a minimum bet on a progressive jackpot slot and winning millions on a single spin. Oh, if only that would happen to me…

But with numerous progressive jackpot slots out there it is hard to know which one gives more bang for the buck. Some slots offer a better base game than others, some slots feature several progressive jackpots and some are just more fun to play!

So we have compiled a list of our top 3 progressive slots currently out there. As we were picking our favourites we wanted to present 3 great slots that all offer something unique and different. What do You think, did we pick the right ones?

Mega Fortune Dreams

The successor to the all-time favourite Mega Fortunes. To make an “updated version” of a previous slot is daring, especially when that slot is Mega Fortunes. The predecessor is loved by many and probably the most played progressive jackpot slot out there. But Mega Fortune Dreams has, in all honesty, taken it to the next level.

With a slicker design, loungey music, bigger maximum wins and more frequent bonus rounds the improvement is small but there! Most importantly, to win one of the 3 progressive jackpots one has to get to the bonus round with the Wheel of Fortune and that happens more often with Mega Fortune Dreams. This slot is also available on mobile devices which is huge in our opinion.

Slot reels/Paylines: 5 reels/20 paylines

RTP: 96.4%

Mega Moolah

This wild African safari themed slot is an oldie but goldie. Released in 2008 it still is one of the most popular progressive jackpot slots available. Fortunately, when they made the slot they created a quite timeless design (of cartoon safari animals) and soundtrack. As far as game features goes this one is fun even without the jackpots. Though not a slot for the high rollers, as maximum betting is only 6.25, the maximum win is a whopping 225,000.

The bonus round is classic jackpot reel where one of four progressive jackpots are bound to be won. This means that if you just manage to get to the bonus round you will win a progressive jackpot! Even better, the bonus round appears at random which means that you could big with many small bets. This slot is available on mobile devices and it should be noted that one of the highest mobile jackpot wins happened on this slot (3.7 million!).

Hall of Gods

Ancient relics, treasure chests, almighty gods, monsters and more is what you will find in this Norse mythology themed slot. Powered by NetEnt this classic progressive jackpot style slot offers some fun and interesting twists. The wilds come in form of a vicious serpent that twists itself around the entire reel it shows up on to boost your chances of winning big. This can happen on multiple reels at the same time.

Secondly, the bonus round. Have 3 Thor’s hammer appear and you will be taken to the bonus game. Here you get to use the hammer to smash shields, which in return show you a cash- or jackpot symbol. Match three of these to win the prize shown. In this slot there is only one progressive jackpot and two normal ones. But you only need to win the progressive to become rich beyond your dreams. Unfortunately Hall of Gods is not available on mobile casinos yet but with its unique gameplay and great design it is forgiven.

What is a Progressive Jackpot?

A progressive jackpot is a type of Jackpot that keeps growing as long as people make bets on the slot (without winning the Jackpot, of course). The progressive jackpot stretches over all casinos that hosts that specific slot which means that the jackpot grows at a much faster rate than a normal non-progressive jackpot. That is why you will find many progressive jackpots being over the millions, even if someone quite recently won the last one. When someone does win the jackpot resets to a base of maybe a couple of hundred thousand.

Jackpot Price Pool News – The 5 Largest Jackpot Prize Pools this month

Jackpot Giant

We begin with last month’s top entry – Jackpot Giant and the €6.6million+ bonanza that awaits one lucky gamer who plucks the prize.

This Playtech favourite has previously held the award for largest mobile casino payout ever – and Ladbrokes have a perfect sign up offer to play it now, whatever your device.

Hall of Gods

NetEnt enter the fray next with their Hall of Gods jackpot slot approaching €6million at the time of writing.

Despite being around for some time, Hall of Gods’ popularity doesn’t seem to be waning, and a next millionaire could well be made by playing at PlayHippo Casino.

Empire Fortune

While Empire Fortune’s €3.5million pot is bit of a drop from the gold and silver medallists, we don’t think you’d be too fussed if it landed in your player’s account.

Give yourself that very chance by joining Betsafe for a starter package well worth your time.

Mega Fortune

If you’ve got a sense of deja vu from last month’s best payday jackpots article here on Gambling Metropolis, change is here in the form of the Mega Fortune series.

Mega Fortune Dreams

Hot on the heels of its older sibling is Mega Fortune Dreams, as a €2.6million total sees it (almost) finish this list of the best payday jackpots for this month.

ComeOn Casino have recently begun to host Mega Fortune Dreams on their platform, with mobile gamers rejoicing in the news that you can hunt for this jackpot glory using both smartphones and tablets.

Bonus Addition – Arabian Nights!

Although we said we’d only give you 5 jackpots to play, we decided that May’s article should be given the Arabian Nights treatment too in celebration of its longevity.

For anyone who’s unaware, Arabian Nights is approaching the anniversary of its last drop – but we’d love you to take home that €2million+ windfall from Hello Casino and spoil the party.
