Since Microgaming's withdrawal from the American market the online casino industry's largest progressive jackpot, Mega Moolah, is no longer available to American players. The next largest progressive jackpots are also from software providers that do not operate in the U.S. That leaves Jackpot Pinatas as the largest progressive jackpot available to American players. Jackpot Pinatas is from Real Time Gaming, which still caters to the U.S. market.

The good news for American players is that Jackpot Pinatas has just breached the million-dollar level. It currently stands at $1,007,000 and is increasing at $2,000 per day. Jackpot Pinatas is a 20 payline online slot machine with the player having to play all 20 paylines at $0.25 per payline. The online slot game has a Mexican theme with brightly colored symbols on the reels including those of tacos, limes, roses, rings, sombreros and beautiful senoritas. The donkey is the wild symbol that substitutes all other symbols except the bull and the dog pinata. This is because five bull symbols on any payline hit the progressive jackpot, which at the moment is ready to make someone a millionaire. The jackpot resets at $250,000. Jackpot Pinatas has an excellent bonus game, which is activated when three or more scattered dog pinata symbols appear anywhere on the reels. The player has to choose two of the pinatas to reveal a prize, which can be worth 200 times the original bet. If one of the pinatas reveals a rose, then the bonus game is reactivated. There is no limit to the number of times the game can be reactivated. At the end of the bonus game the player is awarded between 5 and 25 free spins. In the free spins the bull and donkey symbols appear with increasing frequency. The donkey being the wild symbol increases the possibility of hitting a winning combination. The bull increases the chance of hitting the progressive jackpot.

There is another piece of good news from Real Time Gaming for American players. Another of its progressive jackpots, Shopping Spree, is pushing to the $1 million mark. It is currently at $905,000 but growing more slowly than Jackpot Pinatas. Both these progressive slot games can be played at the Real Time Gaming online casino Rushmore Casino, Cherry Red Casino, Slots Oasis Casino and others found here.. Robert Ben Spiro of Rushmore Gaming had thought that Shopping Spree would be the first to hit the million-dollar mark, but there was a sudden burst from Jackpot Pinatas. As Shopping Spree inches to the million-dollar mark it is bound to attract more players and grow faster. With a little bit of luck we may be reporting about two new American millionaires very soon.
