Just like at your local pokies outlet, a lot of online pokie machines are linked to progressive jackpots. These pokie jackpots can be hit at any time randomly and because people from all over the world are playing at the same time, jackpot turnover is much higher than you would be used to.
One of the worst aspects of any pokies machine is the relative low payout during normal play. However the ability to win big when playing pokie jackpots is much higher due to the linked jackpots rising in value significantly over time.
Most pub and casino pokies jackpots work traditionally by randomly selected amount and the house holding a certain percentage. However online jackpots don’t have an upper limit and can grow extremely quickly and are 100% paid out to players with online casino’s not holding a percentage for themselves. There is currently a popular pokies jackpot that is heading towards $5 million.
There have been cases where teams of players enter a casino when a jackpot is nearing the top level and take up all of the machines which ensures they win the jackpot. In most cases this type of play is not welcome at casinos so we don’t recommend the team play method.
One of the largest online jackpots won was for nearly $6,000,000 and the winner hit it on a $2 bet. Imagine winning that!! Would be quite incredible, pay off the house, a brand new car or holiday house or two. It would change your life in an instant if you won one of these online jackpots.
