There’s a Slots Jackpot for Every Bankroll
Flat-Top Online Slots Jackpots Are the Most Frequent
Progressive Slots Jackpots Are the Giants
Progressive slots jackpots are the giants that dwarf flat-top jackpots, but even giants come in more than one size. At the low end of the online progressive slot machine jackpot scale are the stand-alone progressives. These are solitary machines (like the flat-tops) but their jackpots are progressive. Stand-alone progressive jackpots are smaller than linked progressive jackpots because they are limited to the amounts accumulated in that one slot machine. Every time a player plays this type of slot machine, a part of his bet goes toward the progressive jackpot for that single machine. The maximum payout will be smaller than for the linked slot machines but the odds of winning the jackpot (which is still nice and hefty) are better.
Next up on the progressive slots jackpot hit parade is the proprietary jackpot (which sits in between the stand-alone and the wide-area jackpots). Proprietary slots, which are also sometimes called in-house slots, are linked but only within one site or casino. The jackpot accumulates from many similar slot machines played by many players at the same site, which accounts for its impressive size. The chances of hitting these slot machine jackpots are better than those that are linked over dozens of sites, yet these jackpots are big enough to be considered perhaps the best bet in progressive online slots.
