Jackpot Slots

Best new bingo sites selection - Jackpot Slots

Jackpot slots give players the (albeit very small) chance of collecting a surprise huge win. A small contribution from every spin goes to fund the jackpot and this results in the base game having a noticeably lower RTP than in a non jackpot slot . In some jackpot slots the jackpot continues to grow until it is won and in others there is a time or value before which it must drop. We’ve included some of the best jackpot slots of all time as well as some more recent releases. To find out more, read our comprehensive guide to progressive jackpots.


  • Play Mega Moolah at Casper Games
    Deposit £10+To Open The Ghostly Chest, Top Prize 500 Starburst Spins

    Mega Moolah by Microgaming is probably the most famous jackpot slot in the world and one of the oldest online.  Despite its age the animated cartoon graphics, themed on wild animals, are still fun.

    Mega Moolah has 25 paylines and even in the base game, there’s the possibility of sizeable wins thanks to the 2x wild lion symbol and the high weighting of 5 of a kind in the paytable.  There’s also a bonus round of 15 free spins triggered by 3 or more scatters.

    Mega Moolah can be played at bet sizes from 25p to £6.25 and has RTP of 88.12%.

  • Play Mega Fortune at PlayMillion
    Deposit £10 - £20, Get 100% Slot Bonus

    Mega Fortune by Net Ent is an iconic jackpot slot second only to Mega Moolah in terms of the biggest recorded win; in fact, it held the record for a couple of years prior to 2015 when it was just pipped to the post by the Microgaming progressive.  Most wins are considerably smaller but few are less than a million euros.

    Mega Fortune, which is themed on fast cars, jewellery, champagne and the other trappings of wealth, has 25 paylines and a bonus game consisting of concentric wheels.  Players spin the outermost wheel to determine whether they will receive a cash payout or progress to the next wheel in; to collect the jackpot they must progress all the way to the centre.  The free spins bonus round has a variable multiplier.

    Mega Fortune can be played from 20p a spin and has RTP of 96.6% including the jackpot.

  • Play Kingdoms Rise: Scorching Clouds at Buzz Bingo
    Kingdoms Rise Slots: Deposit & Play £20, Get 110 Wager Free Spins

    Kingdoms Rise: Scorching Clouds is the latest release in Playtech’s Kingdoms Rise series of fantasy themed progressive jackpot slots, which are all connected via a shop where tokens collected through play can be exchanged for bonus rounds.

    One of the great things about the Kingdoms Rise slots is that they are all quite different from each other (in theming and in gameplay) and Scorching Clouds is no exception.  Played on a 5×5 grid with a cascading game mechanic, wins are scored by collecting groups of 4 or more of the same symbol, horizontally or vertically adjacent to each other.  Scorching Clouds has three bonus features – a respins feature and a choice of two free spin bonus rounds – and all of these can also be purchased in the shop using tokens collected from playing Scorching Clouds itself or any of the other Kingdoms Rise games.

    Kingdoms Rise: Scorching Clouds can be played from 10p a spin and has RTP of 97.06% (including the jackpot contribution and the shop tokens).

    * 18+ First depositors only. Deposit & Stake £20 on any Kingdoms Rise slot game: Get 110 Bonus Spins on any Kingdoms Rise slots at 10p (10 lines x 1p) per spin.

  • Play Atlantean Treasures Mega Moolah at Crystal Slots
    Deposit £10+, Crack The Crystal - Top Prize 500 Slot Spins

    Atlantean Treasures Mega Moolah by Neon Valley Studios for Microgaming is a new for 2020 slot game connected to the legendary Mega Moolah jackpot, which is seeded at £1 million and usually pays out much more.  The new game has a conventional 5 x 3 reels arrangement and just 10 paylines, which pay both ways as in that other 10 line slot Starburst.

    The similarity to Starburst doesn’t end there, as Atlantean Treasures Mega Moolah has another very familiar feature – expanding wilds (represented by pink haired mermaids) on reels 2, 3 and 4 which lock for a respin.  There’s no bonus round, and the only other feature is the progressive trigger symbol; when any of these appear on the reels they are collected in the shell at the side of the play area.  The more you collect, the better your chance that the Mega Moolah bonus game will be triggered offering the opportunity to play for one of the four jackpots (your chance also increases with stake size).

    Atlantean Treasures Mega Moolah has RTP of 86.78% (the reason it’s so low is that the jackpot contribution is a substantial 5.3%) and can be played from 10p a spin.

    * New players only, min deposit £10, £8 max win per 10 spins, max bonus conversion £250, 65x wagering requirements and full T&Cs apply

  • Play Pirates’ Plenty Battle For Gold at Betfair Arcade
    Spend £10, Get 50 Free Spins (code ARCFS1) - Winnings In Cash!

    Pirates’ Plenty Battle For Gold by Red Tiger is the 2019 sequel to the prevous year’s Pirates’ Plenty The Sunken Treasure.  As with all of Red Tiger’s games the jackpot arrangements and jackpot size vary from operator to operator.  There may be more than one daily jackpot, or a grand jackpot that isn’t bounded by time or value.  With these games, though, it’s really, all about the daily jackpots and the busier the operator, the bigger they get.

    Like its predecessor, Pirates Plenty Battle For Gold has an extra play area, the Wild Island Row, which starts off locked: collect 50 map symbols (expect this to takes thousands of spins) to unlock it for all future play at the same stake level, upping the paylines from 20 to 30.  There’s a free spins bonus round with extra wilds and another bonus feature, the Wild Monkey symbol which steals all the low paying symbols and triggers a respin with just the high paying symbols, but neither seem common.

    Pirates Plenty Battle For Gold has RTP of 95.67% including the jackpot.  It can be played from 20p a spin.

    * Offer open to new customers using promo code ARCFS1 when registering. No wagering required on free spins. Free spins available for 7 days after qualifying. Full T&Cs apply.

  • Play Jewel Scarabs at Slotnite
    Deposit £10+, Get 100% Slot Bonus Up To £250 + 100 Bonus Spins

    Jewel Scarabs is a new addition to Red Tiger’s Daily Jackpots series of slots.  It has an Ancient Egyptian theme and is played on a 3×5 array with 9 paylines.

    The most important symbol in the game is the jewel scarab itself.  These function as both roaming wilds and scatters.  In the base game, any scarab that forms part of a win stays on the reels for the next spin, flying to a new position in a beautifully done animation.  Three scarabs anywhere on the reels trigger the free spins bonus round; they then stay on the reels for the duration of the free spins.  During the bonus round, each scarab has a multiplier that increases by one each time it is part of a win and when more than one scarab is included in a win, their multipliers stack.

    Jewel Scarabs has RTP of 95.72% (including the jackpot) and can be played from 10p a spin.

  • Play Mars Attacks! at Gala Spins
    Jackpot King Slots: Deposit & Play £10+, Get £40 Bonus

    Mars Attacks! is a Jackpot King progressive jackpot slot by Blueprint Gaming, themed on the 1996 spoof science fiction film.  In the tradition of Blueprint’s other comedy film themed slot Ted it has 5 different bonus rounds and 5 randomly Mars Attacks modifiers that can appear on any spin – so plenty to discover and enjoy.

    The bonus rounds of Mars Attacks! are nice and varied – two are pick-mes, two are free spins with an extra wild feature and the top bonus round is enhanced free spins.  Perhaps the most interesting of the modifiers is Mega Shrink Ray: this shrinks the reels to accommodate 5 symbols rather than three and they are then scored as 3125 ways to win rather than on the usual 20 paylines.

    Mars Attacks! can be played from just 10p a spin and the Big Money boost in the bonus rounds can pay up to 1000x bet.

    * 18+. New customers only. Certain countries only. Min deposit and spend £10 cash on any Jackpot King game = £40 bonus. x20 wagering reqs apply. Bonus valid for 7 days. Selected games only. T&Cs apply.

  • Play Fluffy In Space at Buzz Bingo
    Deposit & Spend £5, Get £15 Online Bingo Bonus, £10 Retail Bingo Vouchers & 10 Bonus Spins + Free Bingo Every Day, Keep What You Win

    Fluffy In Space is Eyecon’s latest sequel to the hugely popular Fluffy Favourites.  Like its predecessors it has 25 paylines but in other ways it is a bit different – and not just because the cuddly toys are wearing space helmets, boots etc.  The pink elephants are present and they still twerk, but there’s a different wild symbol.  Three or more elephants anywhere on the reels trigger the Fluffy In Space feature; 3 respins take place with the elephants sticky and whenever another elephant shows up the number of respins is reset to 3 again.  The respins themselves do not pay anything out, but at the end of the feature each elephant turns round to reveal a multiplier which is applied to the original stake.

    Fluffy In Space also has a free spins bonus round which is triggered by three or more Planet scatters; it is only 6 free spins but can be retriggered multiple times.  This game is bound to appeal to any fan of the other Fluffy games and the Fluffy In Space feature adds a new dimension to an old favourite.

    Fluffy In Space comes in a progressive jackpot version as well as in a regular version; the regular version has RTP of 96.355% and the jackpot version (which has mega, maxi and mini jackpots) has RTP of 90.16% excluding the jackpot.  In both cases the minimum spin value is 25p.

    Deposit £25+, Get 100% Slot Bonus (up to £100) & 20 Berryburst Spins

    Mercy Of The Gods is a progressive jackpot slot by Net Ent with a minor, major and mega jackpot (not on the scale of Mega Fortune though).  It is a high variance game with an ancient Egyptian theme, played on a regular 5×3 array with 20 win lines.

    As well as a free spins bonus rouns, Mercy of the Gods has the Gift of Life Re-Spins feature triggered by any wild. All wild symbols move down the play area one reel at a time until they reach the bottom.  It can be reactivated if more wilds appear and if adjacent to an exsiting wild they spread to cover the whole reel.  (Wilds are pretty rare though).

    During the bonus round, all wilds expand to cover the reel and activate Gift of Life Re-Spins.  Mercy of the Gods can be played from 20p a spin and has RTP of 96.64% (including the jackpot).

  • Play Age of the Gods: Apollo Power at Betfair Casino

    The game has two types of wild symbol, regular and blazing.  Land a blazing wild anywhere on the reels to trigger the slot’s only bonus feature (apart from the Age of the Gods jackpot game) Apollo Power Respins.  During the respins, the blazing wild moves one step at a time in a random direction, leaving a trail of wilds behind it.  The respins continue until the blazing wild lands back on its trail (unless another blazing wild lands in the meantime in which case the process is repeated) Depending on where the blazing wild originally landed and what turns up on the reels during the respins, this can result in big wins – or nada.

    Age of the Gods: Apollo Power can be played from 25p a spin and has RTP of 96.47% including the 0.99% progressive jackpot contribution.

    * New customers in UK/Ire only. Min buy-in £20, max buy-in £200. 40x wagering requirement on Casino Promotional Balance. Game weighting applies. 100 free spins triggered after bonus used/wagering requirement completed. Full T&Cs apply.

    Well of Wishes is a 2019 slot game that is part of Red Tiger’s daily jackpot series.  Some larger operators have their own daily jackpot and others operate across networks of skins.   As well as a daily jackpot that is guaranteed to drop before midnight, the game has two other progressive jackpots (varying from operator to operator).

    The game itself is a 10 line slot with two bonus features.  Lucky Coins symbols can land on any spin: as well as scoring as wilds they are collected and stored.  Once a collection of 5 coins is completed they are thrown into the wishing well which turns all symbols of the same random type wild.  Lucky Spins symbols trigger the free spins bonus round and to make it easier to collect three of them, any Lucky Spin symbols that turn up lock in place for the following spin.  During the bonus round, extra free spins can be added by completing a collection of Lucky Coins and any symbols turned wild by the Wishing Well stay wild until the end of the bonus round.

    Well of Wishes has RTP of 93.08% and can be played at stake levels from 10p to £40 a spin.

  • Play HeartBurst at Zeus Bingo
    Deposit £10+, Open A Loot Chest, Win Up To 500 Slot Spins & Get 48 Free Bingo Millions Tickets

    HeartBurst is a slot game by Eyecon who are best known for Fluffy Favourites and has very obviously been inspired by a certain NetEnt slot, but the resemblance is only superficial.  It has a 5×4 reels array with symbols hearkening back to the days of one-armed bandits, RTP of 95.5% and a massive 100 paylines. Not all of the paylines need be played, but if they are the minimum spin value is £1.

    The slot is named for its expanding wild feature, the Heart, which appears on reels 1,3 and 5 only and expands before pays are calculated.  Any winning line including a Heart pays x3.  HeartBurst also has a bonus round which is classic Eyecon – 15, 20 or 25 free spins triggered by getting 3,4, or 5 Lucky 7 scatters.

    Heartburst also comes in a progressive jackpot version with mega, maxi and mini jackpots and in that version the RTP is 92.067%.

  • Play Mega Fortune Dreams at bingo.com
    Deposit £10, Get £20 Bingo/Slots Bonus & 40 Free Spins

    Mega Fortune Dreams by NetEnt is the sequel to the original Mega Fortune slot.  It is far less widely available than the original (this is by design as it was only rolled out to a few casinos as an exclusive) and the jackpot tends to be smaller (but the smallest recorded win of 1.6 million euros is still not to be sniffed at).

    Mega Fortune Dreams has 20 paylines and is themed on bling – even the low scoring symbols are jewel encrusted.  As in the original, the jackpot (and the smaller Rapid and Major jackpots) can be won during a bonus game. Spin the wheel to collect a cash prize or progress inwards; the prizes on the two inner wheels are bigger and the mega jackpot is at the centre.  There’s also a free spins bonus round with a 3x multiplier.

    Mega Fortune Dreams has RTP of 95.9% to 96.4% inclusive of the jackpot.  It can be played from 20p a spin.

    * *18+, BeGambleaware.org Minimum deposit £10, maximum bonus £20. You must wager your bonus 40x to make it withdrawable. Free Spins are credited on Starburst in batches of 10 over the next four working days and carry a 15x wagering requirement. Bonus will expire after 7 days of opt-in.

  • Play Age of the Gods Norse: King of Asgard at Betfair Casino
    100% Slot Bonus Up To £200 + 100 Free Spins

    Age of the Gods Norse: King of Asgard is a new for 2020 addition to the Age of the Gods progressive jackpot.  Having presumably run out of ideas to do with the Greek gods, Playtech (or rather their Ash Gaming subsidiary) have turned their attention to Norse mythology, starting with Odin, the King of Asgard.

    Odin’s Fury Respins is the name of the special feature in this slot, which is played on a 6×4 array.  If an Odin Wild symbol stack lands fully on the reels it becomes a walking wild and respins continue until it reaches the left hand edge of the play area.  Loki Wilds which appear during respins push him back towards the right.  There’s a multiplier which increments on each respin and is applied to the final respin when Odin is on reel 1.

    The progressive jackpot arrangements are not quite the same as the rest of the Age of the Gods games; the main progressive is networked but instead of the three smaller jackpots there are two, and these are operator configurable so will vary from site to site.

    Age of the Gods Norse: King of Asgard has RTP of 96.67% (including the jackpot) and can be played from 20p a spin.

    * New customers in UK/Ire only. Min buy-in £20, max buy-in £200. 40x wagering requirement on Casino Promotional Balance. Game weighting applies. 100 free spins triggered after bonus used/wagering requirement completed. Full T&Cs apply.

    Like many other Megaways games, Piggy Riches Megaways has a cascading wins game mechanic and a classic Megaways bonus round with an increasing multiplier.  What makes the bonus round even higher variance than usual is the spin the wheel feature at the start, which can award from 7 to 22 free spins with a starting multiplier of 1x to 10x.

    Mystery Reels Power Reels by Red Tiger is the successor to Mystery Reels and Mystery Reels Megaways.  It’s connected to the Red Tiger Daily Jackpots and is played on a 6×7 array.  The 30 winlines pay both ways.

    The gimmick of this slot is the (rather rare) Mystery Symbol which is 2×2 in size and can land anywhere, anytime; when it does, it spreads a random number of clones across the reels and all turn to the same random winning symbol (which may be a wild).

    Mystery Reels Power Reels has RTP of 95.67% including the progressive jackpot contribution and can be played from 10p a spin.

Jackpot Slots

Jackpot slots have become more and more prevalent and popular in recent years thanks to the release of Jackpot King by Blueprint and Daily Jackpot games by Red Tiger.

Perhaps the best known progressive jackpot slot is Mega Moolah by Microgaming.  Mega Moolah is the name of both the venerable slot game itself (it’s over 10 years old) and of the wide area progressive jackpot that covers a few other slots as well (today all these are Mega Moolah sequels but other games have previously been included).  The Mega Moolah jackpot seeds at £1 million and the AVERAGE win is over £4 million.  Mega Moolah is also responsible for the biggest online slots payout in history of 18,915,872.81 euros, in September 2018, but perhaps because that player chose to remain anonymous a previous winner, Jon Heywood, is still the official Guinness world record holder with a slightly smaller win of £13.2 million (at that time worth 17.8 million euros).

Mega Fortune by NetEnt is another progressive monster. Despite being seeded at a mere 250,000 euros, its average win is over 4 million euros and its biggest win only slightly behind the two Mega Moolah wins discussed above.

The problem that can put players off both of these progressives (apart from the fact that, as with all progressive jackpot slots, a significant chunk of the Return To Player is tied up in the jackpot) is twofold:

  1. They are networked worldwide, so there’s massive numbers of other players to compete with
  2. The main jackpot only drops every 8-10 weeks on average, and sometimes it takes months (of course then it is huge when it does drop).

Jackpot King addresses the first problem by being specific to one operator or group of skins, so that players know they are playing at the “right” casino – the one the jackpot is eventually bound to be won at.  For example, the Jackpot King at Paddy Power and Betfair is pooled because they are the same operator, but the Jackpot King at William Hill is different and separate.  Yet another Jackpot King covers all Nektan casinos.  The size of the main jackpot therefore varies dramatically depending on how it has been in place and how busy that casino is  – e.g. £500K at one site and £2.5 million at another.  As time goes on, more and more slot games are being added to Jackpot King – some new, and some Jackpot King versions of previously released popular games such as TED – and more and more casinos (and bingo sites) have Jackpot King progressives.

What Jackpot King definitely does NOT address is the second problem – the main jackpot drops extremely infrequently, with an interval of months or years between drops.  True, it has a couple of smaller jackpots that drop relatively often, but so have Mega Moolah and Mega Fortune.  And here’s where Red Tiger come into the game!

The Red Tiger daily jackpots are MUCH smaller than any of the previously discussed jackpots (a 4 or occasionally 5 figure sum) but not only are they operator specific like Jackpot King, the jackpot MUST drop before the end of the day each and every day.  Some sites even have a version with TWO daily jackpots; at Virgin Games, for instance, the early drop has a cut-off time of 8pm and the late drop of midnight.  One only need visit a site such as Paddy Power and witness the breakneck speed at which the jackpot ticks upwards to see just how popular these jackpot slots are and how much players enjoy knowing that the jackpot they are playing for, will be won at that site before the end of the day.

Somewhere in between are the Eyecon jackpots, each of which runs across several Eyecon slot games.  Eyecon mega jackpots are a mere 5 figure sum which means they drop relatively often (not as often as Red Tiger dailies though!)  Playtech have also got in on the action with the Kingdoms Rise slots and the Sporting Legends series which have a daily jackpot and a value limited jackpot as well as a sizeable progressive.

We’d hazard a guess that what people like most about time limited (and value limited) progressive jackpot slots is the excitement of playing when the time is nearly up or the value nearly reached but the jackpot hasn’t dropped yet.  Please gamble responsibly – it’s very easy to get carried away at such a time and spend more than you intended to.
