It's Raining Jackpots at Online Casinos

Online slots have lower house edges than land casino slots. This is because they have lower costs and can afford to pay out more. And this is no idle claim. The proof of the pudding is in the eating.

When two months ago Sophie M hit two progressive jackpots at William Hill Casino, everyone thought she was extremely lucky. Sophie won over $330K playing first Pharaoh's Treasure and then Gold Rush Showdown. Now Frode from Norway has done better. Not only have his two hits come more close to each other but also they have been on the same online slots game. Frode is a football freak. He signed up at the Playtech online casino, Casino Tropez, to play the online slots game Football Rules. Within two weeks of signing up he won his first jackpot of €38,100 ($51,039). Then barely a week later he hit again and what is more he hit big time. Frode won a whopping €255,014 ($341,618) taking his combined tally to over $392K. Frode is 33 year old and works as a manager in a finance company. He has never played in a land-based casino because there are none in Norway. He recommends Casino Tropez because "the graphics are great" and his advise to fellow online slots players is "play aggressively". The win did come as a surprise to Frode but he is overjoyed that he won playing his favorite game.

Football Rules is a 5 reel, 20 line online video slot with the usual bonus rounds, scatter symbols and wild icons. It also has the Dollar Ball side game that leads to the progressive jackpot. Players choose five numbers from 1 to 49, which are matched with five random numbers drawn. If all five match then the progressive jackpot is hit.

If Football Rules hit twice in a week then Mega Moolah hit thrice in three hours in three different online casinos belonging to the Casino Rewards Group. These casinos are Golden Reef, Golden Tiger, and Casino Classic. The three wins, going to three different players, totaled to $27,117. Many more hits can be expected at Mega Moolah, a Microgaming online slots. In the first instance it has a four-tier jackpot and therefore pays out some amounts more often. The Mini Progressive starts at $10; the Minor Progressive starts at $100; the Major Progressive starts at $10,000 and the Mega Progressive starts at $1 million. And the fact that the Mega Progressive currently stands at over $4.2 million means that more online player will gravitate to Mega Moolah and more of the lower jackpots will be hit while waiting for the big one. Incidentally the Mega Progressive last paid out $5.5 million at a Casino Rewards online casino.
