How does the progressive jackpot work?

Besides the regular slot machines, with their own jackpot or without any jackpot at all, there is a third kind - the progressive jackpot slots.

Online or offline, the progressive jackpot starts at a certain preset amount of money, and from that number it goes upwards in set increments (for example, $10 per minute). The jackpot continues to accumulate until a winning combination is made, which wins the entire jackpot. After that, the jackpot resets at the preset number, and it all starts all over again.

In the online progressive slots, the jackpot is not controlled by the casino, but by the software provider. This way you may have many different online casinos, offering the same jackpot - more people play, the bigger the jackpot gets.
