Mega Money Online Casino Jackpot Won
Yesterday the Mega Money Mine progressive jackpot online casino slot game from Vegas Technology was hit for an amount of $261,375. The jackpot has since then been reset and is currently at just above $27,000.

Mega Money Mine is an unusual progressive jackpot slot game in certain ways. It is a three reel slot game, whereas most progressive slot games tend to have five reels. What is more unusual is that it pays out partial jackpots as well. If players wager with only one coin then the slot game pays out 15% of the jackpot amount. If players wager with two coins then Mega Money Mine pays out 30% of the jackpot amount. Only if players wager with the maximum three coins is the full jackpot paid out. In this hit Mega Money Mine has paid out the full jackpot amount.

Mega Money Mine is a mining themed online slot game as can be seen from the background to the reels. The symbols on the reels are a mix of the classic three reel slot game symbols and symbols based on the mining theme. The symbols of the first type include cherries and sevens. The mining symbols include shovels, diamonds and gold bars. In order to win the progressive jackpot players need to get the three Mega Money Mine logos on the single payline.

Now that Mega Money Mine has been hit and is offering a very low payout, the action at Vegas Technology online casinos will shift to some of the other progressive jackpot slot games on offer. Two games that are very similar to Mega Money Mine are Pay Dirt and Treasure Trail. Pay Dirt currently stands at over $430,000 and Treasure Trail currently stands at over $397,000. Both these progressive jackpot online slots offer partial payouts just like Mega Money Mine. None of these slot games have been hit in the last one year.

The flagship progressive jackpot at Vegas Technology online casinos is Red White and Win. The progressive jackpot amount for this slot has just crossed $1 million. This is great news for players at Vegas Technology online casinos. When a lucky player hits the full jackpot on Red White and Win, Vegas Technology will have its first millionaire. However, the player will have to wager with three coins in order to be eligible for the full jackpot. Wagering with one coin will give only 5% of the jackpot amount and wagering with two coins will give only 10% of the jackpot amount.

The most popular Vegas Technology online casinos belong to the Golden Casino group and the English Harbour group. The Golden Casino group includes Golden Casino, Go Casino and Online Vegas. The English Harbour group includes English Harbour Casino, Millionaire Casino and VIP Slots Casino. All online casinos powered by Vegas Technology accept players from the United States.

I always like hearing about these winners that walk away with anything more then 100K. For most people these kinds of wins amount to live changing wins provided they don't play that all back into the casino. My congratulations goes out to whoever was the big winner here!

It's definitely great to hear that there are consistent payouts on progressive games it a good sign and indication that the games are really legitimate if you ask me. Although I play a lot of slots I find that I stay away from progressive games just cause I know how they work and that most of the volatility well pretty much all of it is in the progressive jackpot. Additionally each wager that you place when played has a certain percentage of the wager taken away to be tacked onto the progressive jackpot prize. The regular line win and scatter win prizes are in general lower because of this. I fully understand why people play them which is the same reason why I play them as well but ultimately if you're chasing the big win the game is ideal but if you're looking to have some fun and enjoy slots there are far better slots games choices.

Lol! I read a comment from someone else here on the site mentioning that there was no news about any big progressive hits lately. Seems like there's one more! Unfortunately I don't think it's been a member of this site as I'm sure if it was there'd be postings all over the place!
