In brick and mortar casinos or online casinos, slot machines are attracting more and more players. The games provided by these machines are easy to access. Unlike Baccarat and Blackjack, slot machines do not require any specific technique from players to win winnings. Players who come for pure pleasure find their satisfaction in slot machine games. They have become the most coveted games in land-based or online casinos, especially since they represent 99% of the gross revenue of conventional casinos. Players are entertained even more thanks to progressive jackpots on slot machines.
What is a progressive jackpot machine?
A slot machine is called progressive when it allows the player to win a progressive jackpot. The principle is simple. The word progressive gets its name from the fact that the amount of the jackpot increases as players bet on a participating machine. Once won, the famous jackpot resets and goes back to a lower amount which will increase again as it is played, and so on until a new lucky winner claims it.
The jackpot therefore has no end. It must be understood that the jackpot increases according to the number of interconnected progressive machines, the number of players betting on these machines, and finally the amount of bets to be played. Players who bet a lot of money on these machines will have the best chance of winning the biggest jackpots.
But it has to last, for as long as possible, without going broke of course. Progressive jackpot slot machines are interconnected through a network of devices that allow for a shared jackpot to be won. This is what determines the size of the winnings to be won.
But it is important to understand that not all slot machines are progressive in land-based casinos and online casinos. The player can identify a progressive slot machine by the name displayed above the slot machines. For example, in the case of the Partouche group casinos, their progressive jackpot slot machines are identified by the name "MEGAPOT". Also known as the Partouche Mégapot, it is the internal jackpot within the group's casinos.
Moreover, the casinos from Barrière, Tranchant, Joa groupe, and independent ones, the machines that bear the name "Magic Casinos Jackpot" allow players to try their luck at the big prize. Unfortunately, the Magic Casinos Jackpot has not been functional since 2013 following the disappointment of players who had not won anything, unlike the Megapot which offers its players more chances to win millions of euros.
In online casinos, classic slot machines are also classified based on the number of reels. However, the player can recognize a progressive slot machine thanks to the "Progressive Jackpot" logo displayed on it, in order to facilitate the choice of players. In this case, the player can easily identify the type of machine that can bring him big winnings.
Netent slot machines are a must-have in online casinos. They don't require any software download. Moreover, they are completely free and accessible to French-speaking players all over the world, except where their games will be removed soon.
Choosing the right slot machine
If a player wants to try their luck to win the jackpot in a progressive slot machine, they must first choose which machine they will play on. There is no specific strategy in this choice. The choice of their machine is based on the player's intuition. Also, one must know the characteristics of these machines. But patience and loyalty to their game are the key words.
The more experience one gains in the game, the higher their chances of winning. However, it is important to know that the chances of winning the jackpot on a traditional machine are much more favorable than winning on a progressive machine. Choosing the machine with the furthest amount from the initial jackpot proves to be a better option in their choice. Indeed, if a player wins, they will have more money since a jackpot of €50,000 can be won before the maximum jackpot of €200,000.
Among other things, it is advisable to choose slot machines that offer high bets. These are the ones that offer substantial winnings to players. In online casinos, it is the ones with the most reels that are more advantageous, with jackpots that can reach several million euros.
