8 Useful Facts about Progressive Slots

There’s a lot to be said about progressive slots, that’s for sure. Chances are, if you’re a fan, that you already know a good many things about progressive jackpots. However, there are still certain fun facts you may not be familiar with. Let’s see which 8 important details about progressive slots you should be aware of, shall we?

Progressive Slot Seed Values Explained

For starters, how much do you know about seed values? The gist of it is, a slot’s seed value is the amount of money that the progressive jackpot resets to as soon as a lucky player has won the jackpot in question.

A slot’s seed value is the amount of money that the progressive jackpot resets to as soon as a lucky player has won the jackpot in question.

What you should know is that this seed value will vary from progressive to progressive, with some online slots having very low reset values and others remaining extremely high. For example, did you know the famous Mega Moolah slot resets to 1 million after it’s just paid a jackpot out? Yep, that much. No wonder it’s so popular, is it?

Random Additional Jackpots

All right, we can all agree that the whole purpose of playing progressive slots is to try and win their progressive jackpots. Know what’s even more cool? Some progressives go one step further and come with special jackpots that you can win randomly – even with a very small number of active paylines.

Our advice is to keep an eye on Playtech slots – then tend to dabble in this random jackpot games, so why not give them a shot?

Jackpots across the Network

Here’s another thing you should know – some of the highest and most coveted jackpots can be won across the network of online casinos. So, if you play certain Playtech or Microgaming slots with progressive jackpots, you can win them in a number of casinos from the same progressive network.

Playing with Multiple Currencies

Another great thing is that if you play at a Microgaming casino, for example, the base currency you’ve already set for your account will be the same for when you play progressive slots. This just shows that you can win no matter what currency you’re playing with.

Multiple Slot Versions

Speaking of Microgaming casinos and slots, did you know that they often have two different types of the same slot? You can actually come across a three-reel slot and a more advanced slot – usually with five reels - with the same title and you can pick the type that works best for you.

Microgaming often features two types of the same slot, one a three-reel slot and a more advanced one, usually with five reels.

Playing at Maximum Paylines and Max Bet

Older progressive slots will only reward you if you play at maximum number of paylines and/or using a maximum bet amount. That is why you should always check the slot’s paytable beforehand and make sure you know whether or not you can win the jackpot even when not playing at max bet or max paylines.

Progressive Jackpots Are Won Daily

Yeah, it’s true; it takes ages for certain progressives to pay out that one giant jackpot we all covet. However, if there are several jackpots per slot game, you can expect them to pay out on a daily basis!

Our advice: always pick those progressive slots with more than one progressive jackpots if you like your odds a bit better.

Winnings Paid in a Single Cashout

Lastly, you may be wondering how a casino pays out your winnings if you do manage to live that dream and land the big progressive jackpot. While a lot of online and mobile casinos have their very own weekly and monthly max withdrawal limits – which you should always check in their Terms and Conditions! – Microgaming progressive jackpots should indeed pay the winnings out to you in a single cashout.
