Progressive jackpot hits attached to online slot games are always in the news. However, progressive jackpot hits attached to table games and video poker are often overlooked. One of the reasons is that these hits are not as big as the biggest slot machine hits. The other reason is that these hits are not considered as glamorous. There have been some table games progressives that have been hit in this past week.
The last to be hit was Progressive Blackjack from the software provider Playtech. It was hit on May 22 for an amount of $76,787. This is the biggest hit in the last six months. This progressive jackpot is hit when the player is dealt four aces of the same suit. A separate side bet is required to activate the jackpot. Playtech Progressive Blackjack can be played at online casinos like Casino Tropez and Omni Casino.
The software provider Vegas Technology offers an identical Progressive Blackjack game. Here too, the progressive jackpot is hit when the player is dealt four aces of the same suit. A hit on this game took place six days ago and paid out $160,059. Vegas Technology Progressive Blackjack can be played at Go Casino and Online Vegas Casino.
Bodog Casino is powered by software from Realtime Gaming. However, the progressive jackpot table games are not linked to the common Realtime Gaming networks for these games. Bodog Casino has its stand alone progressive jackpots. The Let 'Em Ride progressive jackpot was hit at Bodog Casino four days ago. The amount of the hit was $104,397. Around the same time there was a hit on the regular Realtime Gaming Let 'Em Ride progressive jackpot as well. This hit was for a significantly larger amount of $172,887. The regular Realtime Gaming Let 'Em Ride can be played at online casinos like Cherry Red and Slots Oasis.
Video poker games also have progressive jackpots. The one to hit several times last week was Megajacks from Playtech. Megajacks operates on the Jacks or Better payout table. The progressive jackpot is hit when the player draws a royal flush with five coins wagered. Megajacks is hit almost every other day and the payout last week ranged from $910 to $3,551. Its volatility makes it more exciting.
Despite these recent hits there are some attractive progressive jackpots ticking away in the table games category. The Cryptologic Progressive Blackjack is at $80,910. It can be played at online casinos like InterCasino and VIP Casino. The Microgaming progressive jackpot blackjack game is called Triple Sevens. The progressive jackpot is hit when the player is dealt three diamond sevens. The current value of this jackpot is $28,489. It can be played at online casinos like Platinum Play and River Belle.
