It is also worth remembering that one of the top slots in the world today, Mega Moolah, paid out an incredible 12 winners in 2019 alone, that is the second most winners ever in a calendar year on that’s lot alone and one of those lucky winners landed a prize in excess of over $20 million back in January 2019.

For now, let’s first learn a little more about these huge jackpot games and what actually happens if you are ever lucky enough to land one of these massive progressive cash prizes.

Why are progressive slots called progressive slots?

The main reason progressive slots are called such is because they have a jackpot that can expand due to the number of people playing the game. Each player that wagers on the slot will contribute a small amount from that wager to a prize pool. This is the progressive jackpot fund, so-called because with each spin on the slot, the size of the jackpot progresses onwards.

These jackpots differ from traditional slot jackpots as they have no upper limit and often, they need to be won in a certain way that is often quite different to triggering a standard cash win on a typical slot game.

The size of the progressive jackpot prize on offer and how it can be won, depends very much on the slot game you play. In some games, such as Mega Moolah or Wheel of Wishes, you may need to trigger a specific bonus feature of the slot. In others, you may need to land a certain combination of symbols on a stated pay line of the slot (Major Millions is a good example of a slot of this type).

On other slots, progressive jackpots can just be awarded to players entirely at random on any qualifying spin.

What is true in all of these games is that the longer that goes between jackpot wins and the more people that play the game and the more spins played on it, then the larger the progressive jackpot can grow to.

In some games progressive jackpot prizes can amount to hundreds or a couple of thousands, for others it is ten or even hundreds of thousands, but for a select few, the progressive jackpot can reach a million, or even several million and it is these games which are the ones that attract the most focus for progressive jackpot hunters.

So what progressives can I play at bet365 Games?

Bet365 Games offers a very wide selection of progressive jackpot games you can play. These games can be part of a series, all of which are linked to the same progressive jackpot prize pool, or they can be individual games. Some of the options available to you at bet365 Games includes:

  • Jackpot King Series (Includes The Pig Wizard, The Vikings of Fortune, Super Spinner Bar X and Romeo and Juliet slots)
  • Beach Life Slot
  • Jackpot Giant Slot
  • Frankie Dettori’s Magic Seven Jackpot Slot
  • 8 Immortals Series (includes 8 Immortals, Fight for the Dragon Girl and Trials of Li Tieguai slots)
  • Diamond Spins series (includes Mistress of Egypt, Volcano Queen, Cleopatra slots)
  • Kingdoms Rise Series (Forbidden Forest, Guardians of the Abyss and Sands of Fury slots)
  • Mega Jackpots Series (includes Ocean Bells, Golden Goddess, Cleopatra, Siberian Storm ad Star Lanterns slots)
  • Gladiator Jackpot
  • Mega Moolah slot
  • Age of the Gods Series (includes Age of the Gods, Fate Sisters, Furious 4 and King of Olympus)

The games listed above tend to have the larger progressive jackpot prizes available on the site, especially the likes of Mega Moolah and the forthcoming Wheel of Wishes, both of which guarantee top prizes of at least a million (or 2 million in the case of Wheel of Wishes).

Alongside these games there are a number of other progressive games that offer top prizes ranging from a few thousand up to around a hundred thousand. That is of course without any of the other progressives you can play at some of the other bet365 sites, such as bet365 Vegas and bet365 Casino.

What happens if I land a massive win on one of the above progressive slots?

So, the big question is, what would happen if you were fortunate enough to land one of the massive progressive jackpot prizes available on the slots listed above?

Well the first thing to note would be that it would likely be dependent on the amount. If you won a smaller amount, then it is likely the money would just be added into your bet365 Games account ready for you to play with or withdraw (provided you had met any wagering requirements that may be attached to the win).

However, if the win is a massive win, say on the Mega Moolah slot, then there is a process that kicks in when a big winner lands their prize.

The first thing that will happen after the win is that the casino will contact you to do two things, the first will be to confirm your details and to ensure you are the account holder. This is to ensure that you are an eligible player and the account holder and to protect against minors, players from countries not allowed to play at the casino, or those otherwise disqualified from playing.

Secondly, the casino will then check the authenticity of the win to ensure that it was a legal win and that it was not the result of a software glitch or some other such event. Once both these issues are satisfied, then you will be cleared to receive your win.

Unlike in the United States, where big casino wins are subject to tax and players may only receive a fraction of their actual win in a lump sum (or more if they decide to be paid in instalments), in the UK, all wins are not subject to tax and you will receive your cash in a single lump sum.

The casino will then ask you whether you want to go public with the win (which is entirely your choice) and also they may offer you some financial advice and assistance with what to do with such a large sum of money to avoid some of the pitfalls people have fallen into when they have landed big money wins in the past.

After that, you can then focus on deciding what you want to do with the rest of your life and how you want to spend all that lovely cash!

All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning, is get the reels spinning!
