Big Payout Slots To Win Big Money
Table of contents
If you’ve played online slot machine games for any length of time, you will almost certainly know that there are two types of jackpot games out there. There are those which offer progressive jackpots and those that offer non-progressive jackpots. If you’re after playing the slots with the largest and biggest payouts, then they are almost certainly going to be progressive jackpots.
A non-progressive jackpot is a prize which is fixed at a specific sum, and it can be won many times in succession in any time frame. It is always available. However, a progressive jackpot is not capped and rises with each net bet that is made. Once a progressive jackpot has been won, it reverts down to its default minimum level, before rising once more with each new bet. No two players can win the same progressive jackpot prize.
If you’re after giving progressive jackpots a run for their money, you’ll probably want to pick up the biggest and best-paying slots. We’ve identified a few to help get you started…
Microgaming's Mega Moolah is the best-paying slot machine in online casino history. This 5-reel, 25-line slot machine is often affectionately known as the Millionaire Maker and holds the record for the biggest ever progressive jackpot cash prize, at well over £13m.
The African safari-themed slot features four randomly triggered progressive jackpots. At any point in the game, players could be taken to a bonus game, where they can spin a money wheel. Upon that wheel are Mini, Minor, Major and Mega progressive prizes. All you must do is land the pointer on one of the markers, and you will win that respective progressive prize. This slot typically pays out its jackpot once every eight weeks, but lately, it has been coughing up multi-million-pound wins far more frequently.
Mega Fortune and Mega Fortune: Dreams
Another big winner in the world of progressive jackpot slots is NetEnt’s Mega Fortune slot. In fact, it held the record for the largest progressive prize until it was knocked off by Mega Moolah. The top prize in this lifestyle of the rich and famous-themed game is also £13m, though a bit less than the rival Microgaming slot.
There are three progressive prizes up for grabs here, and they are won in a bonus round. You can trigger the bonus by landing three bonus icons on adjacent reels. Once the bonus round begins, players can spin a three-tiered wheel. You need to navigate to the innermost wheel (avoiding the cash prizes, oddly enough) to have a decent crack at winning one of these multi-million-pound jackpots.
NetEnt have also developed a sequel to this game, known as Mega Fortune: Dreams, and while it has delivered by wins, its jackpots are a tad smaller than its sister slot.
Hall of Gods
Hall of Gods is another major NetEnt progressive jackpot slot. The leading Norse mythology progressive on the net, Hall of Gods, offers plenty of free spins, and multiplier prizes as well as its progressive. In the past, this slot has delivered wins worth £7.5m and more. The progressive jackpot in this game is triggered by landing three bonus symbols on the final three reels (3, 4 and 5). In the bonus feature, players can use Mjölnir (Thor’s hammer) to smash shields to reveal either progressive symbols or cash prizes. Match three progressive prizes to win either the Mini, Midi or Mega prizes.
Based on the hit Russell Crowe film of the same name, Playtech’s Gladiator slot actually comes in both progressive and non-progressive formats. The progressive one starts with a jackpot worth £500,000 but in reality, typically pays out several million pounds a pop. Russell Crowe may not make an appearance in the game, but the Gladiator Jackpot Bonus is nonetheless exciting. It is triggered by landing bonus symbols on the reels and allows players to select from 9 iconic gladiator helmets from the film. If all nine helmets are gold, you will win a multi-million-pound progressive jackpot with this popular slot.
Playtech’s DC Universe slots
Last on our list of big payout slots is Playtech. Playtech
used to have a cracking selection of Marvel-themed, superhero progressive jackpot slots. Since Marvel pulled out of the online gambling world, Playtech have snapped up the DC license. The DC Universe Jackpot Network spans over 20 major superhero-themed slots, all of which can see you win the same progressive prizes. There are four in all, no matter whether you play Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, or Justice League-themed slots.
These jackpots are won via a click and win feature (you pick symbols to match up progressive icons) which is randomly triggered. These Playtech progressive slots tend to cough up smaller wins than the rest, but nobody is going to turn their nose up to several hundred thousand pounds, and the wins themselves are far more than what you can win via run-of-the-mill non-progressive jackpot slots.
