Beach Life Online Slots Bound to Bust at $4 Million Jackpot

Wednesday, December 9th, 2009

Beach Life Progressive Jackpot at Casino TropezPlaytech’s Beach Life progressive jackpot video slot is about to reach the $4 million mark, now standing a good chance at creating another online millionaire. Gaming portals across the Web and gambling forums are rife with talk about the massive jackpot, which is not a far cry away from breaking more jackpot records.
Beach Life last paid out a noteworthy million-plus jackpot roughly eight months ago. It was worth €1.8 million, and went to a French player at Europa Casino. Approximately eight months prior to that (August of 2008) a player on Beach Life slots hit one of the largest progressive jackpots ever to be won at an online casino. It was worth over $4.2 million. This is very impressive, considering Beach Life was launched just three years ago.
Catching the attention of the online gambling community at large, Beach Life is now growing at an even faster rate as more players – mostly from Europe – open accounts at Playtech online casinos, which are currently not open to USA residents. The jackpot growth is currently at about $30,000 per day – up from the average of $23,000 per day, which has been accumulating from an initial reset jackpot of $50,000.
While Beach Life is available at fully licensed Playtech licensees, some online casinos offer their own in-house progressive jackpot for the game. In other words, just because an online casino offers Beach Life slots, doesn’t necessarily mean they will also offer the wide area jackpot. If you want the big numbers, i.e. the current $4 million jackpot, OCS highly recommends Europa Casino (which has a lucky track record with Beach Life), the long-standing Casino Tropez, or the Italian favorite – Casino Bellini.
That said, here’s a breakdown on the game itself:
Beach Life Progressive Video SlotBeach Life slots are a bonus video slot with 5 reels, 20 paylines and 35 possible winning combinations (2,000 coin minimum jackpot). The coin value is fixed at $/€/£0.50 with a max bet of twenty coins per wager resulting in a max bet of $10 per spin, which is necessary in order to be eligible for the progressive jackpot. Speaking of which, 3% of every wager is put aside toward the cumulative jackpot. When 5 Sun’s (the wild symbol) are hit on the 20th payline, the big jackpot pays!
Beach Life also offers a great second screen “pick-a-box” bonus game that is activated by three bonus symbols (Treasure chest). Additional winnings (2x) are activated by two or more Scatter Symbols (Sandcastle) on a single payline.
