Progressive Jackpots At Royal Vegas New Zealand

Most people dream of hitting the jackpot at some point in their lives. That’s why they buy lotto tickets at the dairy. Nobody really expects to win big, but it’s worth the price of the ticket to take part in the fun. The same idea applies to progressive jackpot pokies. The chance of somebody winning a mega jackpot is very small, but it does happen every once in a while, and it’s a life-changing event when it does. That’s especially true on Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network, which has paid out winnings in excess of $1,5 billion until now. Now Kiwis can enjoy the very best progressive jackpot pokies in a safe, secure environment here at Royal Vegas Casino. Play on your trusty desktop or launch them directly on your Android mobile or iPhone with our mobile casino app.

How do progressive jackpot pokies work?

That’s a good question! The answer is quite simple. Progressive pokies are pokies that are connected to progressive jackpot networks. A fraction of every bet on a progressive jackpot network goes towards a prize pool known as a progressive jackpot. On the Microgaming network, these fall into the categories Mini, Minor, Major and Mega jackpots. Each jackpot starts off with a specific seed value, which grows progressively as players spin the reels on their favourite progressive pokies and add to the pool, ultimately contributing to somebody’s good fortune. When a player manages to hit a pokie jackpot, they win the prize and the jackpot reverts back to its original seed value.

The best progressive pokies

The progressive pokies you can expect to find here at Royal Vegas New Zealand offer an unprecedented combination of entertainment value and potentially life-changing online jackpots. The fun factor derives from the fact that they’re produced by Microgaming, the software development company that set the scene for online casino gaming in 1994 and rolled out the first mobile casino games in 2004. One thing that Microgaming are world famous for is the quality of their pokies. Captivating themes, superb graphics, catchy sounds and innovative game-play are all par for the course. Pokies with jackpots simply amplify the entertainment by adding the chance to win a very large prize.

Jackpot pokies to play at Royal Vegas

Mega Moolah was the first progressive online pokie, with its zany African safari theme and randomly activated jackpot wheel with a Mega jackpot that reseeds at $1 million. Today, the original Mega Moolah theme has expanded to include Immortal Romance, Juicy Joker, Atlantean Treasures and the very latest: Thunderstruck II Mega Moolah. This reboot of an all-time fan favourite (one of Microgaming’s most popular titles ever!) lets you swing the hammer of Thor, visit the Norse gods in the Great Hall of Spins and have a crack at that Mega jackpot. Another set of popular progressive pokies is the WowPot series, with engaging games such as Wheel of Wishes, Book of Atem and Sherlock & Moriarty offering casino jackpots that reseed at a whopping $2 million. Talk about things that make you go “Wow!”

How to play top pokies with jackpots

Jackpot pokies are no more complicated to play than any other video pokies. You set your betting level, from a minimum of $0.10 to $25, press the “spin” button and watch the action as it unfolds on the reels, all the while knowing that the jackpot wheel could randomly activate at any time. Demo mode is also available for players who want to get the feel of the game without spending any money. Of course, demo mode wins don’t pay out for real.
