There are two types of online slots progressive jackpots. One is the type that seems to go on and on and when it hits it pays out in millions of dollars. The other type pays out much less but hits frequently.
Slotland online casino offers jackpots of the second type. Justifying their choice Ondrej Tuma of Slotland commented, "Our jackpot has never reached millions of dollars like some do. But then, we only go weeks, not years, between jackpot wins. I think our players feel like they have a better chance of winning our jackpot. We've certainly never had a winner that was disappointed in a $100,000 - $200,000 win!"
The online gaming fraternity is hardly surprised when Slotland announces a $100K plus win. On August 28 on online player with the alias MSMIKEY went home with $108,060. MSMIKEY has been a regular player at Slotland for close to two years. That day she was playing a video poker game, "Jacks or Better", and not an online slots game. However this game also features a progressive jackpot. In the game the player is first deal five cards and is given the option of replacing as many of these cards as he wants with fresh ones. The final hand is ranked as per standard poker hand rankings and matched against the given payout table. The player must hold a hand that has a pair of jacks or better in order to feature in the payout table. The payout depends on the hand ranking and the amount bet. In the video poker game at Slotland wagers can be made in the following denominations: $0.50, $1.00, $3.00, $5.00 and $10.00. However in order to hit the jackpot the player has to place the maximum bet of $10.00 and draw a royal flush. MSMIKEY did this in her 134th spin.
The progressive jackpots at Slotland are attractive because they reset at $50,000. This implies that even if a player hits a jackpot just minutes after it was earlier hit the player is assured of $50,000. Slotland manages this by keeping aside a portion of the wager that goes to the progressive jackpot pool for seeding the next jackpot.
No progressive jackpot at Slotland has ever crossed the $200,000 mark. But there have been several in the $150K plus range. The highest jackpot hit at this online casino is $195,083. This was done by a Canadian player this March. The second highest win is $179,166. This was won by a player with the alias TOPNOTCHED on the online slots game Golden 8.
