The Playtech jackpot pool has certain unusual characteristics. Almost 40 progressive jackpot online casino games are included in the pool, which is more than that for any other software provider. However, very few games contribute to the volatility of the jackpot pool. When the jackpots of these online casino games are simultaneously at their peak, then the Playtech jackpot pool ranks among the highest. And when these jackpots have been hit at about the same time, then the Playtech jackpot pool ranks among the lowest. The other unusual aspect about the Playtech jackpot pool is the large number of non-slots casino games included.

Beach Life online slot game is the core of the Playtech jackpot pool. The reset value of this progressive jackpot slot game is $50,000 and it crosses the $4 million barrier from time to time. This is an indication of the volatility it brings to the Playtech jackpot pool. The jackpot is hit when five wild sun symbols appear on the 20th payline. The second big contributor to the Playtech jackpot pool is Gold Rally. It is not as volatile as Beach Life. The reset value is higher at $75,000, but the maximum it has paid out is well under $2 million. The Playtech jackpot pool got a boost when the Marvel Movie super hero slots were launched. These are networked to a four tier progressive jackpot network. The highest tier is the Marvel Ultimate Power. This has a reset value of $100,000 and has registered a highest hit of $1.3 million.

There are a large number of card and table games having progressive jackpots in the Playtech jackpot pool. The most commonly played is Progressive Blackjack. In this blackjack variant the jackpot is his when the player is dealt four aces of the same suit. There are two video poker games in the Playtech jackpot pool. One of them is Megajacks. The jackpot is hit when the player is dealt a royal flush with five coins wagered. The other video poker progressive jackpot game is 10-Line Jacks or Better. Here too, the jackpot is hit when the player is dealt a royal flush with five coins wagered, but in the specified line only. Of interest are two card games that are unique to Playtech online casinos. These are Stravaganza and Wild Wikings. Stravaganza is a blackjack like game without the bust option. The progressive jackpot requires a voluntary side bet and is hit if the player is dealt three kings of hearts.

The Playtech jackpot pool has a number of arcade games with progressive jackpots. The most popular of them is Jackpot Darts. The progressive jackpot is hit when all three darts hit the bull's eye with players having wagered on this outcome. Genie's Hi Lo is a Hi Lo game with a progressive jackpot. In this game the progressive jackpot will be hit if the player advances to the eleventh level. The Playtech jackpot pool also contains a progressive jackpot scratch card. This is Winners Club. In order to be eligible for the progressive jackpot players have to purchase a Gold or Platinum scratch card. In order to hit the jackpot three of the nine symbols on the scratch card have to be jackpot symbols.

All these progressive jackpot games can be played at Playtech online casinos like Casino Tropez and Omni Casino.
