There was a time when a million dollar plus progressive jackpot online slot game hit made big news. In fact, it made news twice over. The first time was when the jackpot was hit and the ticker plunged to the reset level. Then, after the verification was completed, the name of the winner was announced with much fanfare. However, the reporting of million dollar jackpot hits is on a much lower key nowadays. Maybe, the hits are more frequent now and therefore not really as exciting as before. Or maybe the winners do not want so much publicity.
The popular Playtech progressive jackpot online slot Gold Rally hit for over $1.6 million. The hit took place only yesterday and therefore it is too early to tell what sort of response it will evoke on the online casino news forums. But it can be considered a big hit for Gold Rally given the past history of the progressive jackpot of this slot game. In the last two years though it has registered a dozen hits, it has crossed the two million dollar mark only once. This happened 18 months ago. The next highest hit is the current one, which is exactly for $1,625,455. Then there have been several hits between $1 million and $1.4 million. The average statistics for the Gold Rally progressive jackpot are that it hits every 95 days for an average of $1.12 million. In the last 365 days it has paid out $4.6 million. Gold Rally resets to $75,000. In less than two days it has risen by almost $20,000 and that speaks for its immense popularity. It is at $94,020 at the time of writing.
The other popular Playtech progressive jackpot online slot game is Beach Life. This was hit about 3 months ago and has managed to rise to $647,130. Therefore at the moment there are no Playtech progressive slots at above the million dollar mark. Beach Life has a larger average hit at $2.3 million but it hits on an average every 152 days. Therefore over the last 365 days it has paid out less than Gold Rally. But the highest hit of Beach Life has been a whopping $4.25 million.
Among the three highest jackpots at online casinos are MegaJackpots from WagerWorks and Jackpot Pinatas and Aztec’s Millions from Realtime Gaming. MegaJackpots has never been hit since inception. Aztec’s Millions was last hit 17 months ago and Jackpot Pinatas was last hit 39 months ago. This is a vicious circle. The jackpots are not that popular because they rarely hit and the do not hit because they are not played as much.
