Hello out there in
online gambling land! So, whatís it Ďgonna be? Slots or
Blackjack? Ya, I know. Thatís like asking Jagermeister or
wine? So, while they are two very totally different things,
they are really one and the same, right? Two of them get you
drunk and two of them steal your money. Ha, ha just kidding.
Sure, you could argue that slots will steal you blind, but
that isnít totally fair is it? In the end, yes, the online
casino will win more money than the mass of gamblers.
However, there are plenty of lone
players who walk away with more than the casino. Sure,
itís a matter of luck. But itís also a matter of
knowledge and perseverance. If you want to win the big
one, well then, you need to play a slot machine that has
a ďbig oneĒ to offer (Okay, this blog post just totally
got semi-sexual, and Iím not sure if Iím okay with it).
So, before I turn myself on even more, letís talk about
the biggest and best slot machines, and keep our
minds from wandering too far off the subject.
First off, for all of you totally
unfamiliar with how online casino progressive jackpots
work, itís all tied into the software provider. As you
might already know, the biggest and the best software
providers, and consequently, largest jackpot networks,
are Microgaming, Playtech, Cryptologic, Real Time gaming
and Rival Gaming.
This is where things get a little
tricky. While Microgaming, Cryptologic and Pl;aytech
offer the largest selection of million plus jackpots,
they are nothing what they used to be. The reason being
is that all three software developers dropped out the
U.S. market Ė meaning they no longer accept U.S. wagers,
and consequently, have lost the bulk of their business.
Taking up the slack has been the
top three software developers accepting U.S. players Ė
Real Time Gaming, Rival Gaming and Vegas Technology.
Coupled with a rise in online gambling activity overall,
these three networks are now giving Microgaming and
company a good run for their money. Here's a sample of
what these progressive jackpot networks are churning out
