Cash Splash Progressive Video Slot Pays $108,000

Cash Splash Progressive Video Slot Pays $108,000 - Play Cash Splash at Microgaming Online Casinos

Yesterday turned out to be an early Christmas for one lucky player spinning the reels on Microgaming Software’s “Cash Splash” progressive video slot. Breaking for $108,577, the jackpot win has, thus far, been the largest all week across the boards at leading online casino software developers. Following Rival Gaming’s “Money Magic” bust, which paid out over $85,000 to a U.S. player over the weekend, “Cash Splash” first churned out a $71,904 jackpot on Monday, only to be followed the very next day by the $108K payout.

Obviously, “Cash Splash” has been accruing a large sum in order to be hitting numbers consecutively like this. And indeed, being part of Microgaming’s massive jackpot network, not to mention the popularity of the game itself, “Cash Splash” consistently accumulates jackpots in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. Currently – just a day after the $108,577 jackpot win – “Cash Splash” is about reach the $166,000 mark.

That doesn’t necessarily mean “Cash Splash” is bound to hit again tomorrow, although that could very well happen. 🙂 Being a progressive jackpot game, or for that matter – a slot machine – there simply is no telling when a big payoff will come. Granted, when a progressive jackpot busts and is reset to the default value, players tend to wager less on that particular jackpot. The general sentiment is that the smaller the jackpot, the less “worth” that game is to players who are looking for a big online slot jackpots. In other words, unless the jackpot has reached a value deemed “worthy” of having a go, jackpot hunters will generally shy away.

On the other hand, the larger the jackpot, the sooner it will pay off handsomely, i.e., the max jackpot will be hit, which in the case of the more popular games oftentimes is in the millions of dollars. Consequently, progressive jackpot online casino games tend to have an exponential snowball component to their structure – the larger they get, the larger they get in a shorter amount of time due to an increase in play.

In the case of “Cash Splash”, the fact that two big jackpots paid off in two consecutive days, shows that the world of online gambling is never 100% predictable. While there is a certain degree of predictability for the most part, the one thing that cannot be disputed is that unless you’re in the game, you can’t win. Not to throw the “pressure card” at you or anything, if you’ve never gambled at the online casino before, don’t be afraid to give it a go. Even if you try it out just once, there’s a chance you might become the next online millionaire.

If you are totally intrigued about Cash Splash (and why wouldn’t you after reading such a vivacious blog post, right? 🙂 ), here’s more about Microgaming’s Cash Splash video slot:

Cash Splash is a five reel, fifteen payline game with a fixed coin denomination of $.20. Up to fifteen coins can be bet per payline, making the maximum wager $45 per spin. In order to be eligible for the max jackpot, every payline must be wagered upon. However, only one coin per payline is required, thus making the minimum jackpot-eligible wager $3 per spin. The maximum regular payout is 6,000 coins, with multiplied winnings going into effect when the blue scatter symbol shows up anywhere on the reels. The “Cash Splash” wild symbol does not substitute for the blue scatter symbol, but it does for all other winning combinations.

This weekend was a good one for jackpot wins, albeit there are no millionaires to report. 🙁 Most promising was a series of big wins scored on mobile devices. Another testament to the growing popularity of mobile online casino gambling, this particular jackpot was worth $10,225, and hit on the Tomb Raider video slot, which is extremely popular with both mobile gamers and regular online casino players.

But don’t let that get you down all my U.S. friends. Even despite attempts by the U.S. government to block U.S. players from online casinos, “good luck” also frequently happens for U.S. residents in the online gambling world! Case in point was this very weekend, in which a yet-to-be identified player scored a $86,006 jackpot playing at the Rival Gaming network of U.S. facing online casinos. The game responsible for dishing out the $86K jackpot was the “Money Magic” progressive video slot, having finally stolen some thunder from Rival Gaming’s “Major Moolah” slot, which has been one of the hottest slots of late.

Currently, the cumulative progressive jackpot total at Rival Gaming Casinos is worth over $26,000, with “Strike it Gold” now worth over $11,000 and the exciting I-slot, “1 Million Reels BC” now nearing the $8,000 mark. Having busted recently, both “Major Moolah” and “Money Magic” are under $4,000 each. For a real-time feed of jackpot tally’s check out Superior Casino. They get our topmost recommendation for Rival progressive jackpot action, notwithstanding the fact that they are one of the only licensees with a real time feed! :).

Don’t forget to take advantage of a free no-deposit bonus worth $20 (maximum cashout of $50), or $1,900 in three free slots bonuses and $1,000 in three free casino game bonuses. PLEAS NOTE, however, that all sign-up bonuses at Superior Casino have a maximum withdrawal of $50. If you don’t want to be kept taking home a big jackpot win early on before meeting the play-through requirement, DO NOT claim this bonus.


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.

£25,000 Lotsa Loot Jackpot Win at Jackpot City

Tuesday, December 1st, 2009

Download Lotsa Loot Casino Slot

For anybody who still thinks online bingo doesn’t pay off, feast your gaze on the Jackpot City Bingo Room, where a player just bagged £25,000 within hours of opening his account. Well okay, maybe he didn’t do it playing bingo per say :), but it’s still yet another reason why online bingo rooms are now giving online casinos a good run for their money. Fortunately, in the case of Jackpot City it really doesn’t matter since they are an online casino, bingo room, poker room and mobile casino – all under one roof. Go ahead…check ’em out…they won’t bite.
Back to this £25,000 win, shall we? Apparently, it was won on one of the side games offered inside Jackpot City’s bingo room – the Lotsa Loot progressive jackpot slot machine to be exact. Lotsa Loot is one of Microgaming Software’s most popular progressive games, and is actually building back up again (now worth well over £25,000). It may not be the largest jackpot in the neighborhood, but it certainly is one of the more affordable progressive games to play.
Not to digress or anything, but Lotsa Loot actually comes in two versions – the original 3-reel, 5 payline game and a 5-reel, 25-payline game. As with all progressive jackpots, in order to be eligible for the max payout, you have to bet the max amount of credits on all the paylines. Obviously, the 5-payline game is going to be a smaller bet. But wait just a darn-tootin second – we haven’t talked about coin size yet! Remember, this can also make a difference when going for that big payout.
Here’s where things get a little tricky. The original 5-payline version has a fixed coin value of $0.50 and a max wager of five coins (one per payline). That makes the max bet $2.50. The 25-payline game has a fixed coin value of $0.10 and a max wager of twenty-five coins (one per payline), also making the the max bet $2.50. In other words, each game costs the same to be eligible for the max jackpot win. Guess what that means? They both feed into the same progressive jackpot.
Either Lotsa Loot game you play, the jackpot is the same. However, if you like to spread your bets out more, you might want to consider playing the five-reel version and wager $0.10 on a single line every now and again. Then again, there’s less winnings to be had this way. Another option would be sticking to the three-reel version and bet $0.50 on a single line every now and again. Then again, slots Aficionado’s will tell you that you should be betting the max amount on progressive jackpots at all times anyways. So many choices, it can make a grown man cry! But really folks, it all comes down to how large a bankroll you have. Stretch it out accordingly and stick to your loss limits 🙂
One last thing before signing off (I thought this was going to be a post about Jackpot City online bingo, but such is the journey of my ADD-riddled mind…Oh well, I’ll take my mediation and give you a dose of bingo in the next post). Anyways, if you do indeed decide to play the Lotsa Loot progressive video slot (available at Microgaming Jackpot Casinos), and you notice 3 LotsaLoot symbols on the 5th payline (or 5 symbols on the 25th line of the video slot version), take a moment, or rather, take a screen shot, and proceed to scream at the top of your lungs – you just won the progressive jackpot.
