Types of Jackpots
Progressive jackpot appears to be a prize pool accumulating small percentage deductions of each bet placed. Consequently, every time the gamblers clicks the “Spin” button on the licensed NetEnt soft from 1% to 5% of the bet is added to the total amount.Considering the fact the chances of winning such a sizable amount of money are quite small, But most of the solutions have several jackpot types. The smaller the value the higher the chances of winning.
E.g. “Mega Fortune” allows the person to win one of the 3 jackpots: Mega — accumulating 5,39% of each bet; Major — 1,1%; Rapid — 1%. The current jackpot value is always shown on top of the screen. The opportunity to hit that jackpot appears during the bonus game. The player has to reach the center of the wheel containing the “Mega Jackpot” area.
“Cosmic Fortune” slot offers 5 progressive jackpots simultaneously. Deductions vary from 1% to 3,8%. The jackpots are drawn during the bonus round that may remind pinball.
“Caribbean Stud Poker” offers another kind of jackpot. It accumulates not the percentage deductions but special side bets of €1. Therefore, the jackpot grows slower. It’s paid only to the gambler who got “Royal Flush”. The other poker combinations (“3 of a kind” or higher) will bring the gambler a fixed odds bonuses.
Local and Pooled jackpots
Progressives are either local or pooled. The local one combines deductions (in %) of each bet in a separate casino. Pooled ones are formed the same way but they accumulate the money from all online & brick and mortar casinos using NetEnt’s licensed soft.Local jackpots are always smaller. Despite that, they’re still popular among the gamblers because it’s easier to win.
If you’re looking for a game offering a pooled jackpot only, “Arabian Nights” is your pick. It’s among four most popular progressive jackpots powered by NetEnt.
To hit that mega win the gambler needs to form an active payout line with 5 joker-genies.
The list of games equipped only with local jackpots has more names in it. Including “Super Lucky Frog”, “Caribbean Stud Poker”, “Mega Joker”, “Cosmic Fortune”, and “Divine Fortune”. Most of these games offer several jackpots simultaneously, which are distinguished by the deductions’ percentage.
The most profitable jackpot for the modern operators is certainly the “mixed” one. Like “Mega Fortune” or “Hall of Gods”. These games offer a “Mega” jackpot (which is pooled) & all of the others are local.
