Progressive jackpots at online casinos are usually associated with slots games. There are some casino poker games and video poker games with progressive jackpots. But Virgin Casino is unique in this respect. It offers a number of thematic scratch cards with progressive jackpots.

Wintry Wonderland Scratch is one of the more popular scratch cards at Virgin Casino because it offers the largest progressive jackpot and is a perfect game for describing how the progressive jackpot works. The basic scratch card works in the usual manner. The scratch card, which consists of nine cells in a 3x3 format, is set in a frosted window pane with a snowy background scene. Scratching each cell reveals a symbol. The symbols in Wintry Wonderland Scratch are cap, skates, holly, fireplace, cabin snowman and present. If players get three matching symbols on the scratch card then they win. All but the progressive jackpot symbol offer a fixed payout that is dependent on the amount wagered.

In Virgin Casino Wintry Wonderland Scratch the present is the progressive jackpot symbol. Getting three present symbols on the scratch card gives the player a share of the progressive jackpot. Just how much that share is depends on the amount wagered. The minimum wager is £0.10 and it pays 2% of the progressive jackpot amount. The maximum wager is £5.00 and it pays 100% of the progressive jackpot amount.

The current value of the progressive jackpot that can be won for the amount wagered is displayed in the game. When players get three progressive jackpot symbols they will be contacted by Virgin Casino to confirm the win and the amount won will then be credited to their account. The progressive jackpot will be reduced by the amount won. Should the full progressive jackpot be won or the amount won take the value of the jackpot below the re-seed value of £15,000 the jackpot will be set at £15,000. The progressive jackpots of the scratch cards at Virgin Casino are not increased continuously. They are increased once a day at midnight based on the wagers of the previous 24 hours.

There are a number of progressive jackpot scratch cards on offer at Virgin Casino. They follow the same structure but differ in detail. Beachside Bonanza has a beach theme. The symbols include bucket, deck chair, shell, palm trees, lobster and sun bathing girl. The progressive jackpot symbol is the diamond. Arabian Delights has an Arabian Nights theme. The symbols include bracelet, scimitar, necklace, camel, flying carpet, Arab and magic lamp. The progressive jackpot symbol is the diamond. Beat the Bank has a bank theme. The symbols include gold coins, checks, wads of cash, gold ingots, bank building and safe. The progressive jackpot symbol is the diamond. Deal or No Deal Quick Scratch is based on the popular television game show. It is a bit different from the above scratch card games at Virgin Casino in that there are no symbols. The different payouts appear directly on the scratch card. The progressive jackpot symbol is the jackpot logo. All these jackpots reset at £5,000. The minimum wager is £0.20 and it pays 10% of the progressive jackpot amount. The maximum wager is £2.00 and it pays 100% of the progressive jackpot amount.

Virgin Casino accesses these scratch card games from the Virgin Bingo site. The games are powered by Virtue Fusion, which is now a Playtech company. Virgin Casino is licensed by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission.
