Unprecedented Wagering on Beach Life

The Playtech progressive jackpot online slot game Beach Life has drawn a lot of traffic in the past month. As the cold winter sets in online casino players would find the sunny beaches displayed in Beach Life an attraction. However the real reason for the unprecedented wagering is that the progressive jackpot amount has reached almost $4 million and is growing fast.

Beach Life was last hit 169 days ago and reset to $50,000. Since then it has had a great run growing at an average of $23,000 a day. The current growth is around $30,000 a day. It is in the nature of progressive jackpots to start growing faster as they reach higher amounts. The amount wagered remains the same and as the jackpot grows it provides greater value for money. Also there is the expectation that it will be hit shortly. Both these factors bringing added traffic. With more traffic the jackpot grows faster and as it grows more traffic enters. Hence it becomes a self propelling cycle and that is what is happening with Beach Life.

At the time of writing the progressive jackpot amount stands at $3.98 million. It will cross $4 million by the end of the day if it is not hit. The total payouts from Beach Life over the last 365 days have been about $4 million at an average rate of $1.86 million. Viewed in this perspective one can understand the excitement that this progressive jackpot online slot is currently generating. On an average it has been hit every 75 days in the last year. The last hit took place 170 days ago. Though progressive jackpots can be hit any time the fact that the last hit a place at more than twice the average period between hits does work on the minds of online casino slots players.

Once Beach Life crosses the $4 million mark the next stop is $4,238,508. This is the highest hit recorded on Beach Life. The hit took place way back in August 2008. In another ten days Beach Life should cross this landmark if not hit before then. However, Beach Life will have a long way to go if it is to cross the largest ever jackpot hit across all progressive slots. Microgaming's Mega Moolah was hit for over $6 million less than a year ago. This comparison is a bit unfair because Mega Moolah resets at $1 million while Beach Life resets at $0.05 million.

Beach Life can be played at all Playtech online casinos. CasinoAdvisor recommends Casino Tropez, Casino Del Rio, Omni Casino, Play United Casino and Golden Palace Casino.
