What does Jackpot mean?

The term was conceived in the poker world. More specifically, Draw Poker dictated a ‘Jacks or Better’ rule whereby players are required to have two Jacks or better in hand to open the bidding.

If none of the players fit the opening requirement, the table would have to place another ante, making the opening pool - or rather the Jackpot - all the more fruitful.

Over the years, the word came to be integrated into online casino games.

Understanding Jackpots

Make the most out of your time on our jackpot slots by staying in the know about the different types of jackpots out there. So let’s get started: what’s the difference between static and progressive jackpots?

  • Static jackpots: As the name implies, the amount of such jackpots is determined from the beginning and will stay the same. If someone hits this jackpot, the same amount is re-added so that the next winner will grab an identical sum as the one before.

  • Progressive jackpots: On the contrary, a progressive jackpot evolves and can keep growing to an incredibly high degree until someone finally wins it. This works because every time a player wagers in-game, a proportion of that wager is transferred into the pot. It will then go back to its original amount when won, and the process will kick off again.

How do Progressive Jackpots Work?

You can’t miss progressive jackpots. They’re the big ones. The jackpots we all dream of snagging, offering life-changing cash that can reach well into the mega millions. Progressive jackpots, quite simply, continue to build and build, and build, until they’re won.

How they grow is interesting. Every time a player wagers in a game connected to a progressive jackpot, a small percentage of each wager is added to the pot. Progressives continue to build through linked slot machines; some within one casino only, some across an entire network of global games and casino floors, virtual and brick & mortar. This process of feeding jackpots from wagers continues until some lucky gamer wins it all, at which point the jackpot resets and the process begins again. They rarely reset back to zero as these are seeded amounts, often starting big and ending even bigger.

What are the Differences Between a Local and Wide Area Progressive Jackpot?

Let’s get straight to the goods - a wide area progressive jackpot will often be much larger than a local one, but they have a much larger pool of players you’ll need to compete with to win it.

Wide area progressive jackpots cover a whole lot more ground - technically and literally. These pooled jackpots have slot machines in various locations all contributing to the pot.

Local progressive jackpots pull from one casino only. So, they’ll likely have lower jackpot amounts depending on their rules and seeding, but as we mentioned before, less competition.

Let’s talk examples. We’ve got our very own LeoJackpot, fed only by participating players in our den hosting a current jackpot of $18 Million (no typo there!). But, we’ve also got global hits like Microgaming’s Mega Moolah, as wide area as a progressive can get spawning multiple casinos and often featuring a prize pool that exceeds $4 or even $5 Million.

Types of Progressive Jackpots

Progressive jackpots can also be of two types; pooled or local. While pooled jackpots signify that several different casinos are pitching into the same jackpot prize, local jackpots receive contributions from players of a single casino. Even though local jackpots typically enjoy lower amounts, the truth is that with less competition, your chances of hitting the jackpot turn out to be much higher!

What Types of Games Can Have Progressive Jackpots?

If we do a quick recap of what a progressive jackpot is, we know that every time a wager is made on the game, a small percentage of it goes towards building the jackpot. And while many slots have this delightful feature, progressive jackpots certainly aren’t limited to reels alone. Casino table games like roulette, blackjack, poker, and variations like Caribbean Stud offer progressive jackpots that work the same way!

What is a jackpot slot?

To put it simply, a Jackpot Slot is a game with massive win potential. Such slot games may feature more than one prize pool, typically categorised as Mini, Minor, Major, Maxi, and Grand.

Progressive vs Fixed Jackpot slots

Jackpot slots can come in different shapes and sizes:

Fixed Jackpots slots - The prize value does not fluctuate within these casino slots games. The providers of the game predetermine the sum of such pools. For this reason, most often, they carry a lower prize value.

Consequently, these pots are typically more often won, carrying a higher RTP than other forms of jackpot games.

Some examples of these slots are Mustang Gold and Caishen’s Gold, both in which landing the Grand pot multiplies the winning bet by 1000 times.

Progressive Jackpot slots -Whilst fixed prize pools can be very consistent, progressive casino games offer a unique experience. Charged with dazzling elements and valuable prizes, progressive slots have seen our players winning over $11 million.

How this work is that the prize value continually increases until one lucky player wins it. Approximately 7% of each bet played on the slot is contributed to the respective pool. For this reason, as the cash pool remains untouched, its value exponentially grows. Once the value is won, it is resumed to its default minimum amount, which varies from game to game.

Given the large sum of money involved, one can understand why the progressive pot value is not won as frequently. Then again, the best things come to those who wait, and our jackpot winners are proof of that.

Local Jackpots - These slots offer a prize value contributed directly by players from a single casino. Therefore, prize pools on games such as Mr Holmes & the Stolen Stones are augmented by bets placed from LeoVegas players alone.

Network Jackpots - These games are composed of bets placed by players across all casinos.

What makes this jackpot unique is that it's not fed by a variety of linked slot machines across other sites and networks. No siree. The LeoJackpot is entirely ours, serving players in our den as an opt-in promotion streaming from 500+ slot games across our virtual casino floor.

LeoJackpot features four tiers of cash prize pools, increasing in value from the Mini, Minor and Major, all the way to the Mega.

  • Mini Jackpot seeds at $7.50

  • Minor Jackpot starts at $150

  • Major Jackpot seeds at $15,000

  • Mega Jackpot starts at a whopping $7.5 Million

Set your stake for a minimum of $0.15 and begin your quest for life-changing moola.

In order to participate and be in the running for winning, you’ll be required to set a minimum bet of $0.15 per spin when playing your chosen LeoJackpot game. Now, if you’ve opted in to this promotion, you’ve agreed to $0.15 to feed the Jackpot each round.

If you want to get super technical, we’ll take you there too. Let’s talk about how they are fed. The LeoJackpot four tiers are contributed to as per the following scale:

  • 10.50% of Jackpot bet feeds the Mini Jackpot (25% goes to the next Jackpot)

  • 21% gets contributed to the Minor and Major Jackpot (10% and 20% towards the next Jackpot, respectively)

  • 17.50% of each bet helps build the Mega Jackpot (of which 20% goes to the next Jackpot)

If chosen randomly, you could very well get to spin the LeoJackpot wheel vying for that pointer to land on the MEGA for mega million and safe to say, life-changing wins. And with that, we wish you the very best of luck!

Jackpot FAQ

What is the meaning of jackpot?

While the true meaning of the jackpot may be financial joy, the more Webster friendly definition is a large cash prize. Specifically, a jackpot is a cash prize that accumulates until it's won via a game or lottery.

Where did the term jackpot come from?

Oh, we enjoy a good piece of trivia! The term jackpot is actually rooted in poker - specifically, Draw Poker. It’s derived from Jack (the playing card) + the pot (cash prize) and came to be with forced antes that built a cash pot up if players weren't holding jacks or better. Over the years, slots took this gem of a word over and attributed it to an accumulating cash prize pool.

What triggers a jackpot on a slot machine?

Slots are a game of luck, run using a random number generator (RNG). So, truth be told, there’s no real strategy that can be applied to beat these machines. An RNG is a microprocessor that generates numbers several billion hundreds of times per second - and these numbers determine the position reels will land. There’s just no predicting with RNG!

How do daily jackpots work?

Just as they sound, daily jackpots pay out a jackpot daily. They’re simply programmed to award a jackpot within a specific time period. And if that time constraint is daily, they’ll drop a jackpot at some point during that time span - like those in our Ready to Drop slot section.

How do you analyze jackpot games?

Read the rules of the jackpot. The less the number of matches the better. Consider head to head past results. Consider the current form of both teams.

Do slot machines ever hit the jackpot?

Yes they sure do, and this is evident by jackpot amounts. At certain times, you may return to your favourite progressive and see a lower grand jackpot - and this is because it has been awarded to some lucky player!

Are jackpot slots worth it?

If you’re playing, why not play the games with the biggest potential payout? That’s one way of looking at it. Keep in mind that many jackpot slots require a minimum wager to be placed to qualify for ‘the big one’, and it's usually the max bet. So always take into consideration the types of slots you like to play (smaller yet frequent payouts or larger but less frequent ones) and your personal bankroll.

How often do slot machines hit the jackpot?

There’s a few factors in this question. Our Ready to Drop series, for example, are slots that will drop a jackpot every 24 hours. This is not the case for all progressives, and the higher the grand jackpot, the more likely the odds are stacked against you, just like in a Lotto 649 or Max draw. It’s tricky to land the big one, but hey, somebody’s gotta win it! And as they say, why not you?

Do all slot machines have jackpots?

Not all of them! But, we’ve made it easy to find the one that does at LeoVegas. A handy Jackpots tab as well as our Ready to Dro tab is where you’ll find our curated list of progressive jackpot slot machines.

Which slot machine gives you a better chance of winning the jackpot?

Just like any slot on the market, jackpot slots have a return to player percentage. Of all slots, progressive jackpots are on the lower end of this spectrum, often featuring less frequent wins, but big payouts when they do hit.

How do progressive jackpots work?

For slot machines and table games featuring a progressive jackpot, the cash prize pool is fed by a small percentage of each wager spent. Over time, this builds and builds into one fat cash prize pool or a series of tiered jackpots, like a Mini, Major and Grand.

What are progressive jackpot slots?

Progressive jackpot slots host an ever-building, accumulating cash prize pool. Every time the slot game is played, a percentage of each spin’s wager is added to the jackpot. Some slot machines are part of a network that share a jackpot, while others may pull from one casino or one particular slot game. Of course, the larger the network feeding the prize pool, the larger the cash prize will be!

Can I play jackpot slots for free?

Our slot machines at LeoVegas all come with a handy free demo mode option. This allows you to test the game and check out its bonus features, without any monetary investment. However, you need to be playing real money to win a jackpot that’s not virtual coins.

How to win a jackpot in a slot machine?

All you can do is go by the old saying, you can’t win if you don’t play! A jackpot is released solely based on the Random Number Generator. There are no secrets or strategy that can help swing it in your favour. But, when playing a slot game with a jackpot, or progressive one, be sure you are playing the limits that allow you to qualify for it!

How to win a progressive jackpot?

Whether it's a jackpot, a progressive jackpot, a bonus round or Free Spins, with any slot machine the Random Number Generator (RNG) is in charge, so there’s just no predicting or strategy that can help land the big one. We repeat, there’s no secret strategy.

What is the biggest jackpot ever won on a slot machine?

To date, the Excalibur Casino takes the trophy for the biggest jackpot ever awarded - and it’s a whopper. $39.7 Million was awarded back in 2003 to a software engineer playing a MegaBucks slot. Not too far behind, Absolootly Mad Mega Moolah awarded over $23 Million. Dare to dream!

What happens when you win a slot jackpot?

Winning online requires no cashier assistant tapping you on the back for a chaperoned walk to the cashier. No sirree, landing a jackpot online means that all those funds, millions if you’re a grand jackpot winner, are shipped directly to your player account and made available for withdrawal. Of course, given there are at least two companies involved in the win, it will go through a quick channel of verification before it’s official.

How can you tell when a slot machine is getting ready to hit a jackpot?

Straight up - there’s just no telling when a slot machine is ready to pop. Every spin and symbol is determined by the RNG, random number generator, and nothing more. Now, that being said, we have mentioned that our Ready to Drop slots release prizes within a daily time frame, so at least this helps narrow it down a tad for you!
