The WagerWorks powered network of progressive jackpot online slots, MegaJackpots, has crossed the £2.5 million mark, making it one of the largest jackpots in the online casino industry. It can be played at all WagerWorks powered online casinos such as Virgin Casino.
MegaJackpots is a jackpot that grows slowly and hits infrequently, but when it hits the payouts are really big. It was last hit about 19 months ago for just over £2 million. This hit when it does take place will be even bigger. The jackpot has recently been growing at a uniform rate of £2,000 per day, but as the jackpot amount rises so will the growth rate.
There are three slot games linked to the MegaJackpots progressive network. They are Cleopatra, Monopoly and Cluedo. Cleopatra has an ancient Egypt theme. It has payouts that would even make a Pharaoh blush. Monopoly and Cluedo are based on the popular board games. Monopoly with Pass "GO" Bonus offers two bonus opportunities. In Cluedo players can win up to 180 free spins playing in the Mystery Bonus. Though these slots have their individual symbols based on their respective themes, they share a common MegaJackpots symbol. The jackpot is hit when players get 5 MegaJackpots symbols on the center payline on a max bet play. The max bet play involves wagering the maximum 5 credits per payline on each of the 20 paylines, or a total bet of 100 credits.
WagerWorks is a part of International Game Technology (IGT). IGT is the premier slots machine developer for land casinos. It also operates a MegaJackpots progressive network for its land based slot machines. In December 2009 IGT added a new slot game to the MegaJackpots network. This was Sex and the City based on HBO’s award winning television series. IGT has just announced that Sex and the City slot game has reached the Number 1 position among all MegaJackpots progressive games on casino floors today. Susan Macke, IGT Chief Marketing Officer, said, "It’s clear the Sex and the City slot’s following is strong. We’re thrilled to offer fans and slot players this superior gaming experience. The slot machine is filled with all the fun and fashion we’ve come to expect from Sex and the City and it’s the perfect accessory to any girls’ night out at the casino." This slot game has been officially licensed by HBO Licensing & Retail. Sex and the City slot machines are available across the globe. They were launched last week in Mexico City. Players at WagerWorks online casinos are wondering when they will get to play on the online avatar of this slot game.
