Big Progressives Slots Cross 2.5 Million

Three of the most popular progressive jackpot online slot games have just crossed the 2.5 million mark. These are Beach Life from Playtech, MegaJackpots from WagerWorks and Mega Moolah from Microgaming.

Mega Moolah is the leader, but just by a whisker. It is currently taking away at 2.61 million. There are four online slot games networked to this progressive jackpot, which are: Mega Moolah, 5 Reel Drive, Summertime and Isis. The progressive jackpot can be hit playing any one of those slot games. The progressive jackpot can be hit with any amount wagered. But the chances of hitting the jackpot are greater for larger amounts wagered. Mega Moolah has a maximum wager of 125 coins per spin, which at the largest coin size amounts to $6.25 per spin. This is a very reasonable amount considering that the payout would exceed $2.5 million. There are three smaller jackpots offered in Mega Moolah and players have the opportunity of hitting the smaller ones as well.

Beach Life is running in second place at 2.59 million. But at the rate it is growing it will take the lead in a matter of days. In order to hit the progressive jackpot on Beach life players have to wager the maximum bet, which is $10. In Mega Moolah low rollers who want to wager less than the maximum amount of $6.25 have some chance of hitting the jackpot. But in Beach Life those who wager less than $10 per spin will not be eligible for the progressive jackpot. But when the prize is over $2.5 million $10 seems like peanuts.

MegaJackpots is running at 2.50 million. The WagerWorks network is largely based in the United Kingdom and therefore the payout will be in British pounds. Microgaming and Playtech have a larger customer base wagering in euros and American dollars therefore MegaJackpots is likely to pay out more on an equated currency basis. Three slot games are linked to the MegaJackpots network and these are Cleopatra, Monopoly with Pass GO Bonus and Cluedo. As in Beach Life players are expected to wager maximum coins in order to hit the jackpot.

There are two different races on among these three progressive jackpot online slot games. One race is which of these three will be the first to hit. The outcome of this race cannot be predicted by anyone. The second race is that if not hit, which of the three jackpots will be the first to cross the 3 million mark. Here the winner is clear. At the rate Beach Life is growing it will easily be the winner.
