Only introduction of the progressive jackpot made slots in online casino more popular than card games. As soon as it became possible to unite slots into huge networks, withdraw a certain percentage from every bet made, and form a prize pool, slots in online casino took off immediately and still remain the most popular type of gambling.
Although being delusive, hope of becoming a millionaire in one second is attracting a great number of people. In the USA lots of gamblers keep coming to Las Vegas, where they play at slots for several days or even weeks, trying to hit the jackpot. Some of them succeed.
At online casinos the progressive jackpot is popular too. For a long time it was considered that at online casinos it`s impossible to win a really large sum of money. However, several multimillion jackpot wins eliminated reasons for such allegations.
One should remember that a certain percentage is withheld from every bet made on every slot in the network. Thanks to thousands and millions of such payments the jackpot is constantly increasing. The percentage withheld usually amounts to 3%, so payout percentage offered by such slots in the online casino doesn`t exceed 94-95%.
Quite often there is a rule, according to which you can win the jackpot only if you bet a certain amount of money. Every online casino is sure to have lots of examples when gamblers made a minimum bet and won only a small part of a multimillion prize.
Despite attractiveness and temptation of instantaneous enrichment, we advise you not to get obsessed with it. Odds to win the progressive jackpot are extremely low. You shouldn`t count on hitting the jackpot, even though we keep hearing that someone has succeeded.
