Online Casino Jackpots Rise to Higher LevelsBy: Adam Richards, Friday February 12th 2010

No major progressive jackpot hits have been reported in the recent past. This, in a manner of looking, is not bad news at all. It means that the progressive jackpot online slot games have been steadily climbing and when they are hit the winner will get a more substantial reward.
Currently, the highest progressive jackpot is the MegaJackpots network from WagerWorks. It is running at over £2.37 million. The games that are networked to this progressive jackpot are Monopoly, Cluedo and Cleopatra. All three slot games can be played at Virgin Casino.
Mega Moolah has quietly breached the $2 million barrier. This too is now a progressive jackpot network with four slots games connected to it. Apart from the original Mega Moolah the network has 5 Reel Drive, Summertime and Isis. Mega Moolah has paid out over $6 million less than 12 months back and many players in the online gaming industry will want to see it rise to that level again. Mega Moolah is adding about $12,000 a day, which means that it has about a year to go before it touches the $6 million mark at this rate of wagering. As the jackpot amount rises the wagering will increase and therefore one can expect the $6 million mark to come sooner than a year if the jackpot is not hit before then. Microgaming online casinos proliferate in the Internet gaming space and the most popular ones are All Slots Casino, Platinum Play Casino, Spin Palace Casino and The Gaming Club. Mega Moolah can be played at all these casinos.
The Realtime Gaming progressive jackpots are also doing well. Jackpot Pinatas is in the lead and has just crossed the $1.6 million barrier. This is a new high for Jackpot Pinatas so not much can be said about it except that it is a fun slot to wager on. Aztec’s Millions and Shopping Spree have just crossed the $1 million mark. Aztec’s Millions is marginally below its highest hit of $1.26 million and this is the highest that Shopping Spree has ever gone. Taken collectively the Realtime Gaming jackpots form the largest jackpot pool. All these progressive jackpots can be played at Realtime Gaming online casinos like Club World, Cherry Red and Aladdin’s Gold.
The Vegas Technology progressive jackpot online slot game Red White & Win has also just crossed the $1 million mark. Its previous two hits have been just below a million dollars. Since Red White & Win pays a partial jackpot as well, the amount rises very slowly. This progressive jackpot game can be played at the online casinos of the English Harbour group. Finally the flagship Playtech progressive Beach Life is inching towards a million dollars. It has recorded two hits of over $4 million in the last two years.
