Progressive Jackpot Slots
Whilst some online slots can yield huge prizes via standard line wins and bonus round rewards, the chance to win millions and retire instantly at any age is only really possible if you play a progressive jackpot slot. 

Despite the vast amounts you can win on them, these slots are still available using free spins offers at dozens of online casinos, and in most respects they’re exactly the same as non-progressive games. In fact, the only difference is that a tiny portion of every wager made is kept to one side by the software developer that supplied the game to the casino where you play it. These amounts add up very quickly and the entire pot is won when a player triggers the progressive jackpot.

There are a couple of ways that you can do this: Firstly you can spin five high value symbols – usually the wild but not always. Playtech’s famous Beach Life slot is the best example of the game that uses this method.

Secondly you can wait for the progressive prize to be awarded at random, which is far more common. All of Playtech’s famous Marvel slots work like this, as do many others – and they are usually linked to a clever algorithm that biases the prize towards higher-spending players, so if you’re making large wagers on a regular basis your loyalty may well end up being rewarded.

Progressive prizes are usually awarded in the base game of a slot – never during free spins rounds, so there’s no need to worry about any confusion when you win a big jackpot. Once you’ve been awarded the progressive prize you’ll usually then need to play another game to determine how much you’ll win:

These vary in format but the best ones in our opinion come in the form of fortune wheel rounds as found on games like Major Millions from Microgaming and NetEnt’s Mega Fortune. These add lots of extra excitement by keeping you guessing as to which of the differently-sized progressive prizes you’ll win until the very last second.

The best selection of progressive slots comes from Microgaming. As well as offering standard wilds, scatters and free spins these games all give you the chance to hit the big time with the biggest progressive prizes on the web including the famous Mega Moolah which paid out a record-breaking £13m-plus prize in 2015.

There are plenty of casinos that let you play Microgaming slots but our favourite by no small measure is the multi-award winning 32Red. Here you’ll get £10 in free spins with absolutely no deposit required, plus £32 in bonus cash for every £10 deposited, up to the value of £160.
