A jackpot pool is the combined listing of all the online casino games from a software provider that offer a progressive jackpot. The sum total of the progressive jackpot amounts at any given time is the value of the jackpot pool. The jackpot pool can consist of individual casino games having their own progressive jackpots or of casino games networked to a common progressive jackpot. As such the games or networks within a jackpot pool function independently. But online casinos like to display the value of the jackpot pools in order to bolster their brand equity.
Realtime Gaming (RTG) is a software provider that figures high up in the ranking of jackpot pool amounts. The RTG jackpot pool has some features that make it unique and interesting. But the core of the jackpot pool consists of the standard progressive jackpot online slot games. Of these Jackpot Pinatas and Aztec's Millions are stand alone online slots. Jackpot Pinatas has a Mexican theme. Its progressive jackpot is hit when five Bull Pinata symbols appear on any of the paylines with a $0.25 bet per payline. All 20 paylines are enabled by default. Aztec's Millions has as its theme the lost civilization of the Aztecs. Its progressive jackpot is reset at $1 million, ensuring that it is always above $1 million. It is hit when five Aztec's Millions symbols appear on an active payline.
The most popular progressive network in the RTG jackpot pool consists of the online slot games Shopping Spree and Mid-life Crisis. The jackpot amounts displayed in both games are always identical. If the jackpot is hit in either slot game then it is reset in both games. Shopping Spree is a woman's delight. Everything that she ever wanted to shop for is there on the reels and this includes lipstick, perfume, shoes and pearls. Five diamond rings on any payline, with all paylines enabled, hits the jackpot. Mid-life Crisis is the male equivalent. The symbols depict the wealth that men accumulate but also the health problems that accompany the wealth. The progressive jackpot is hit in a similar manner, only the symbol is a sports car.
The other games contribute significantly smaller amounts to the RTG jackpot pool. But the games are nonetheless very popular. One of these is Jackpot Cleopatra's Gold online slot game. Egypt themed games are very popular at online casinos and among these the Cleopatra themed slot games are even more popular. Jackpot Cleopatra's Gold has the usual symbols like Cleopatra, Ankh and Eye of Horus. Five Cleopatra symbols in an active payline award the progressive jackpot. Because of the popularity of Shopping Spree, RTG recently launched Shopping Spree II. This is a standalone progressive jackpot. The symbols are almost the same as in Shopping Spree but are crafted in three dimensions. The progressive jackpot is hit with four diamonds and one wild symbol in an active payline.
Whereas, the bulk of any jackpot pool is made up of online slot games, there are other casino games that have progressive jackpots. The RTG jackpot pool has four casino poker games with progressive jackpots. One is the stand alone Let 'Em Ride. The other three are the popular trinity of Caribbean Stud Poker, Caribbean Draw Poker and Caribbean Hold'em Poker. These are networked to the same progressive jackpot.
The RTG jackpot pool is available at all RTG online casinos. CasinoAdvisor recommends Win Palace, Slots Plus, Casino Titan and Silver Oak.
