What are progressive games?

They are games that have a progressive jackpots attached to them, and at Royal Vegas Online Casino, that doesn't only mean online slots. Most of them have the potential value for each jackpot increases every time somebody plays. Some of the jackpot totals for online progressive slots rise to astronomical amounts and have paid out millions in a short space of time.

The common feature that all jackpot games share is the jackpot meter, which shows the current value of the jackpot and subsequently increases as people place their bets. It’s important to note that most progressive jackpots are won in the currency that you’re playing in, and therefore the amount may differ from what’s advertised.

How do Progressive Slots Work?

When playing progressive slots at Royal Vegas in Canada, there’s one important thing to look out for: the jackpot total. All the progressive slots start with a minimum guaranteed jackpot, so the specific slot’s jackpot will never be lower than this amount.

As players continue to spin, a percentage of each bet will go towards the jackpot total, making this amount grow with each spin, until one player hits the jackpot on the game and wins the full amount – the jackpot will then be reset to the minimum amount. Some online progressive slots have more than one jackpot amount that can be won, while others have a minimum of 1 Million and even 2 Million as a starting jackpot.

Symbols to Look Out For

Most slot games will have specific symbols that can trigger either an in-game bonus feature, but in most cases the progressive jackpot will be triggered at random, launching a wheel that can be spun to find out if the jackpot will be won or not. However, online slots still offer other exciting features, and these are the symbols to look out for when playing:

  • Wild: In any online casino slot, the Wild will substitute for other symbols, with the exception of one or two, in order to complete possible winning combinations.
  • Scatter: In most cases, it takes at least 3 Scatters symbols to land which will trigger a Free Spins feature. While this is not the same as hitting that jackpot, you’ll at least get a round of spins at no extra cost to possibly boost your bankroll.
  • Bonus: Some slots have specific bonus symbols which will launch an interactive round where you get to select items to possibly win instant credits.

Popular Progressive Slots

There are plenty of slots to enjoy, but the secret in playing progressive games is understanding how each of them is played. In order to be eligible for a win, you have to play using real money and it’s recommended that you place a maximum bet in order to avoid the frustration of losing out on what could potentially be a bigger payout.

Some of the most exciting online progressive slots, which include not only a progressive jackpot but also special in-game bonus features, are:

  • Wheel of Wishes: An Arabian fantasy-themed slot, Wheel of Wishes offers Scatters, Power Spins and 4 different progressive jackpots, with the WowPot! starting at 2 Million.
