Hot on the heels of Mega Moolah breaching the $5 million mark, another Microgaming progressive jackpot has crossed a significant barrier. The popular online slot King Cashalot is now ticking at just over a million dollars. This was launched in June 2004 and has provided several hits. The total of all Microgaming progressive jackpots stands at over $7.87 million. This is the largest jackpot pool of any online gaming software provider.
The crossing of the million dollar mark is very significant for King Cashalot because the last three hits on this jackpot have been just short of a million dollars. The largest hit has been about $1.2 million and that is still a few months away because the jackpot is growing at about $3,000 per day. However the jackpot amount is already double that of its average hit. When compared with Mega Moolah the statistics of King Cashalot do not seem amazing. But one has to factor in the reset levels of the two progressive jackpots. Mega Moolah resets at $1 million whereas King Cashalot resets at $100,000. Therefore King Cashalot is at 10 times its reset value, whereas Mega Moolah is only 5 times its reset value.
King Cashalot is a 5 reel, 9 payline video slot. The maximum number of coins allowed per line is 5, but the coins have a fixed dimension of $0.05. The progressive jackpot slot has a medieval theme with the symbols on the reels being King, Queen, Jester, Damsel and even a Dragon. The medieval atmosphere is enhanced by the royal repast that includes Gammon, Turkey, Fish, Pudding and Fruits. The lucky player who will draw five King symbols on the 9th payline with the max bet will now become a millionaire. But till that happens there are other prizes to be won. Five King symbols on any other active payline have a payout of 15,000 coins. Incidentally the King is the wild symbol and doubles the payouts when it is in a winning combination. The Jester is the scatter symbol. Two or more Jester symbols any where on the reels result in a payout.
King Cashalot has a very interesting bonus game. Three Dragon symbols scattered on reels 2, 3 and 4 trigger this game. The bonus game is played on the second screen. Players choose a treasure chest from those provided. This chest reveals the amount of treasure inside. But there is a twist. In order to calculate the winnings the treasure amount is multiplied by the total number of coins wagered. So players should wager max bet while playing King Cashalot.
King Cashalot can be played at all Microgaming online casinos. Some of the recommended casinos are All Slots Casino, Blackjack Ballroom Casino, Jackpot City Casino, Platinum Play Casino and River Belle Casino.
