A History of Mobile Progressive Jackpots

Progressive jackpot games were not available until the 1980s when slots machine technology developed sufficiently to offer a higher number of paylines for 3 reel and 5 reel games. IGT developed the first progressive slots game which put aside 10% of the wagers into a pot that continued to grow until it was won. With the introduction of online casinos and online gaming, the progressive jackpot concept really took off. Software providers were now able to link machines without the constraint of land-based settings. Some progressive jackpots now offer pots that start from 1 million and often pay out millions in prizes. With mobile gambling now available, more players than ever can enjoy the chance to play progressive jackpot games and these can be played at any time, in any place. The jackpots have the chance to soar even higher.

Microgaming Progressive Jackpots

Microgaming powers the largest online progressive jackpot in the gaming industry with more than 40 unique progressive titles. The network has paid out more than EUR375 million in prizes, with the largest payout hitting EUR6.37 million in 2009 on the Mega Moolah slots game. This game, alone has paid out over EUR280 million in progressive jackpot prizes. Other popular progressive jackpot games at Microgaming casinos include Major Millions, King Cashalot, Dark Knight, Cash Splash, Treasure Nile and others. Non-slots progressive games include Cyberstud poker, roulette royale and jackpot deuces.



Playing Mobile Progressive Jackpot Games

While progressive slots games are certainly the most popular and most common type of progressive games available, players can enjoy progressive poker, blackjack, roulette and video poker games as well. Mobile casinos generally offer a selection of the online casino’s top games. While there is a far more limited selection of games on the mobile site that on the online site, a range of favorites will be included. These will include progressive jackpot games. The progressive jackpot games at mobile casinos are linked to the same networks as if you were playing online. The first millionaire ever to be made by winning a progressive jackpot via a mobile casino happened in May 2013 when a lucky player won the Mega Moolah progressive jackpot game and took home an impressive NZ$1,062,335.
