There were several big progressive jackpot wins last week, including some at US-friendly casinos
Sep 8, 2009
This has been a big week for progressive jackpot winners! One massive win at a US-friendly online casino, and several smaller ones at a variety of other online gambling sites, all add up to well over a quarter of a million dollars in progressive payouts.
Progressive jackpot games all have their usual payout schedules, but they each have a special jackpot too. These are collective jackpots, and every time a player makes a wager on a progressive game at any online casino, a little bit of that wager is put into the progressive jackpot. These special jackpots keep growing and growing until someone wins.
Two Cryptologic progressive games paid out last week. The first was on one of the Marvel Heroes games, which paid a nice sum of $16,779. The other came from one of the Movie Mayhem video slots – this one paid out even more, sending one lucky player off with $33,133. Cryptologic offers a fine selection of blackjack games, including their popular 8-deck Blackjack Progressive game.
A few players landed big payouts from Rival progressive games recently. The ever-popular Major Moolah paid out $33,133 last week. Even bigger wins have come from Rival progressives during the past month, including $34,000 from Strike Gold, and a huge $127,000 from Million Reels BC! Most Rival casinos accept US players. They don’t offer a progressive blackjack game, but they do have lots of other great blackjack titles to choose from.
The biggest recent progressive payout came from a RealTime Gaming (RTG) site called Rushmore Casino. A very lucky player was spinning Cleopatra’s Gold when they hit the big prize, and pocketed a huge $254,910! Most RTG-powered casinos also accept US players. RTG offers some great progressive poker games, but all their blackjack titles only offer standard payouts.
Playing progressive games is a huge gamble since the odds of hitting a big jackpot like these are slim, but just imagine what you could do with a quarter of a million or more in cold, hard cash! Playtech, Vegas Technology, and Microgaming all offer progressive blackjack games as well, so there are plenty to choose from. Pick a progressive game today and see if you can walk away a winner!
