What Are Progressive Games?
Anyone who has been to a land based casino will have seen the giant LED boards displaying long numbers that constantly tick upwards. Casino regulars know exactly what those numbers mean, but for those who are visiting a casino for the first time, it may be a bit of a mystery. With numbers that big, though, it must be an intriguing one.
As you watch those numbers climbing higher and higher, you are looking at the growing jackpot for a network of progressive slot machines. These slots are sometimes linked across several different casinos, and not just the one you happen to be playing in. Every coin that is placed into one of the networked slots causes the jackpot to climb and it will continue to do so until someone hits it.
Progressive games were at one time only available in land-based casinos, but now players can get into some progressive action at the Platinum Play Online Casino with a number of different progressive slots games, all with huge jackpots that will be climbing even as I write. The king of the progressive games at Platinum Play is Mega Moolah, which has a jackpot that is currently sitting in the tens of millions. If that doesn’t inspire someone to play, I don’t know what will. The one thing that progressive players must keep in mind when they choose to play is that they must wager the maximum bet with every spin in order to be eligible for the progressive jackpot when they hit the winning combination. Progressive games are no longer just limited to the slot machines, and Platinum Play also offers incredible progressive jackpots on the poker table and roulette wheel, meaning that the big money doesn’t have to be just for the reel spinners.
