King Cashalot is the third of the high payout Microgaming progressive jackpot online slot games to hit in less than two weeks. Mega Moolah was hit for over $1 million just less than two weeks ago. Major Millions was hit for $300k just over a week ago. And this weekend King Cashalot was hit for amount of $577,986. Between the three jackpots they have made players at Microgaming online casinos richer by almost two million dollars.

King Cashalot has always been a volatile progressive jackpot. In December 2006 it hit for its largest ever amount of $1.7 million. Then within a month it hit again for just over $1 million. This was followed by three hits of low amounts and then by four hits of around $1 million. Then was the current hit of $0.5 million. King Cashalot has paid out on an average just above $850k registering a hit every five months or so.

King Cashalot is a five reel and nine payline slot game. The progressive jackpot is hit when five King symbols appear across the ninth payline with max bet enabled. At five coins per payline the player has to wager 45 coins per spin. At a fixed coin size of $0.05 the wager per spin is $2.25. This is a nominal investment for a payout that runs into hundreds of thousands of dollars. King Cashalot has a medieval theme with the symbols including the King, the Queen, the Knight and the Lady. The other symbols form a royal repast. Apart from the progressive jackpot there are plenty of winning opportunities. The King is the wild symbol, which doubles payouts. The Jester is the scatter symbol and offers scatter payouts that are multiplied by the total bet per spin. The Dragon is the bonus symbol and when it appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 the Treasure Bonus round is activated.

With this spate of hits the pool of Microgaming progressive jackpots has reached a new low. Mega Moolah is running at $1.04 million. Major Millions is at $0.29 million and King Cashalot is at $0.22 million. With the other progressive jackpot games contributing smaller amounts the total pool works out to $2.1 million. This is a far cry from the beginning of the year when the Microgaming pool was soaring above $7 million.

King Cashalot and the other Microgaming progressive jackpot games can be played at all Microgaming online casinos. CasinoAdvisor recommends Platinum Play, Lucky Nugget, Blackjack Ballroom, Roxy Palace and All Slots Casino.
