Jackpot Slots

Best new bingo sites selection - Jackpot Slots

Jackpot slots give players the 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 Jewel Scarabs at Slotnite
    Deposit £10+, Get 100% Slot Bonus Up To £100 + 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 Pirates’ Plenty Battle For Gold at Videoslots
    11 Wager Free Spins & Deposit £10+, Get 100% bonus up to £200

    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.

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

    Mega Fortune is a jackpot slot from NetEnt that’s among the most popular progressive games of all time. In terms of pay-outs, its right up there with Microgaming’s blockbuster Mega Moolah titles. Released in 2008, this iconic slot remains a major crowd-pleaser.

    Comprising a luxury theme, the action takes place on a standard 5 x 3 game area. The reels are decorated with various items that should be familiar to the filthy rich including a limousine, an assortment of gold rings and a wad of dollar bills.

    The limo is the most valuable, paying out 40 times your stake if it appears five times. A yacht represents the standard wild and replaces all other symbols apart from the bonus and scatter.
    There are two bonus features – a free spins round and bonus game. The former is activated when you land three, four or five champagne scatter symbols in any position.

    You’ll then be rewarded with 3, 10 or 100x your stake respectively and will have to choose one of the triggering scatters to determine how many spins you receive. Multipliers are in play as well as scatters which can lead to more free spins while also boosting the multipliers.

    But the standout feature is the bonus game. To gain access you’ll need to unveil three bonus symbols, each on adjacent reels. Manage this and an illuminated, tiered wheel replaces the standard game area.

    Each tier is populated by a jackpots (apart from the outer one) as well as cash prizes which increase as you get close to the wheel’s centre. To progress, you’ll need to spin and land on arrows – land on the diamond encrusted arrow and you win the Mega Jackpot.

    RTP: 96%, Minimum Stake: 0.01

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

    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.

    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%.

    Kingdoms Rise: Reign of Ice is the latest release in the new Kingdoms Rise series of fantasy themed progressive jackpot slots by Playtech and is very loosely themed on Norse mythology.  As in the earlier games in the series (Forbidden Forest, Guardians of the Abyss and Sands of Fury), you collect tokens as you play which can be redeemed in the Kingdoms Rise shop against bonus rounds from any of the four games.  In the case of Reign of Ice, one of these is the regular bonus round, the Hammer Respins, in a regular and enhanced version and there’s also two bonus rounds that can’t be triggered in the game normally.  There’s a regular progressive jackpot plus a daily jackpot and a value limited jackpot.

    Reign of Ice has 25 lines and can be played from 10p a spin.  The RTP including the jackpot contribution and the tokens is 96.07% – without either it is 92.08%.

  • Play Well Of Wishes at Mecca Bingo
    Play £10, Win Up To £120 Bonus

    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 Pixies of the Forest II at Gala Spins
    Deposit & Play £10+, Get £20 Slot Bonus & 30 Spins

    Pixies of the Forest II is the long awaited sequel to IGT’s classic 2012 game, itself based on a real world slot machine.  Like the original Pixies of the Forest, it has 99 paylines with a fixed bet of 33 coins and is a Tumbling Reels slot. The new game includes the Pixie Queen bonus symbol as well as all the pixies from the original, bringing several new features.

    As well as a free spins bonus round, the game has the Spirit Meter feature which is filled when the reels tumble multiple times as the result of a single spin; when full, it awards a feature wild (random wilds, wild reels or countdown sticky wilds) for the next 1-3 spins and this can result in big wins, especially in the free spins round.

    Here wilds appear on reel 1 as well as on reels 2, 3 and 4 and the capacity of the Spirit Meter is increased from 5 to 18 greatly increasing the number of feature wild spins that can be collected.  The Pixie Queen can also appear randomly to award an extra spin, remove symbols to trigger an extra tumble or award spirits to fill the meter.

    Pixies of the Forest II has a higher RTP than the original game – 96.57% to the original’s 94.9% – but this includes the three progressive jackpots (the biggest of which is seeded at £1500).  If you liked the original game, you’ll love this brighter, better featured sequel.

  • Play Fluffy In Space at Buzz Bingo
    Deposit £10+, Spend £10 On Bingo Get £30 Bingo Bonus & £10 Club Voucher and/or Spend £10 On Slots, Get 200 Spins (Fire Blaze™ Blue Wizard Megaways™)

    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.

  • Play Mars Attacks! at Lucky Vegas
    Deposit £20+, Get 100% Slot Bonus (up to £100) & 75 Spins (Finn & the Swirly Spin)

    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.

    Aquaman has a fixed bet of 25 coins and can be played at anything from 25p to £50 a spin. It has an RTP of 95% excluding the jackpot.

    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 Amazing Catch at All British Casino
    Deposit £20+, Get 100% Slot Bonus (up to £100) + 10% Cashback

    Amazing Catch is a five reel slot by JustForTheWin. The main highlights of this extremely popular slot a super-wheel feature with jackpots of up to 5000x your stake, a multiplier upgraded system and a free spin round with multipliers.

    Although a re-skin of Diamond Sands, the game looks decent enough. The game area is framed within a fishing line reel which is set against a nicely-designed riverscape background.
    Medium to high value symbols are represented by different coloured fish. Land one five times across a pay-line and you’ll receive 30x your stake.

    You’ve also got money fish symbols worth up to 100x your bet, which go some way in compensating for the lack of wilds. When three to five of them land on the same pay-line, their values are added togetherNext to the reels is the Super Wheel which kicks in randomly and very occasionally during the base game – this is provided a bonus token is visible on the reels. The wheel features jackpot prizes of 20x, 50x, 250x or 5000x your stake.

    The free spins round activates when you land three free spin symbols and 10 free spins are then awarded. During the round, if you land a collect symbol, all money symbols in view are collected on top of standard money prize line wins.

    There’s also a meter installed to the left of the reels, with each tier displaying a win multiplier. To progress, you’ll need to collect four golden lure symbols. For each upgrade, you’ll get five spins. The multiplier also applies to line wins and money symbol collections.

    Minimum Stake: 0.20

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.  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).  Microgaming have now introduced another monster progressive, WowPot.

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.  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.
