RTG Jackpots Are Stars of the Season

In the Christmas and New Year season spirits are high and players are dreaming of striking it big. The only way low rollers can hope to win huge payouts is by playing progressive jackpots. And this year it is the Realtime Gaming (RTG) progressive jackpot pool that is by far the largest. The largest progressive jackpot online casino games in this pool are Jackpot Pinatas, Aztec's Millions and Shopping Spree. All three are currently ticking at above a million dollars.

Jackpot Pinatas has the festival theme though it celebrates the Lenten festival and not Christmas. However, this technicality will not deter online slots players from wagering on Jackpot Pinatas during the coming weeks. The symbols on the reels are brightly colored pinatas, gifts, Mexican hats and fire crackers. The festive music played during the featured wins adds to the cheer. The progressive jackpot is hit when five Bull Pinata symbols appear in an enabled payline. The total bet per spin is fixed at $5 and this can yield a payout of over $1.5 million if the progressive jackpot is hit. In the bonus round players can win up to 200 times the triggering bet and up to 25 free spins at doubled payouts.

Aztec's Millions was released in January 2009 and is about to complete its first year. This is a watershed progressive jackpot online slot game for RTG because it resets at $1 million. It has been hit once about three months ago for $1.2 million and is currently ticking away at just over $1 million. RTG players are hoping that it will hit again before its first anniversary. Five Aztec's Millions Logos in an enabled payline result in the progressive jackpot being hit. Like Jackpot Pinatas this slot game has a fixed bet per spin of $5.

The third RTG progressive jackpot online casino game that is above $1 million is Shopping Spree. This slot has never been hit before. Therefore players at RTG online casinos are eagerly waiting to find out who will be the first one to get five Diamond symbols in an enabled payline. The other symbols include expensive shoes, classy floral bouquets, high priced lipsticks and perfumes and pearl necklaces.

The jackpot amounts of the other progressive games are significantly lower. The highest of the rest is I.R.I.S. 3000, which is currently at $277k. Some of the other progressive jackpot online slot games are Jackpot Cleopatra's Gold, The Shark and Crazy Dragon. RTG offers progressive jackpots in games other than online slots and these include Let 'Em Ride and the three Caribbean poker games. The Caribbean poker games are networked to a common progressive jackpot. All RTG progressive jackpot games can be played at online casinos like Club World, Aladdin's Gold, Rushmore Casino and Cherry Red.

That's great to see RTG online casino jackpots being hit. I know that there was a while there where we really weren't seeing much in terms of these being hit but certainly it was just a matter of time before they did. I know that I like playing RTG slots especially cause a lot of them do offer jackpots that have progressive accumulators attributed to them.
