Vegas Technology Casinos Paying Out Big Jackpots

In a recent article here at OCS, we brought light to the fact that after several top-shelf online casino software developers closed their doors to the U.S. market; i.e., Cryptologic, Playtech and the more recent closing of Microgaming, all of the U.S. traffic has begun to funnel to the only other reputable, offshore regulated software suppliers who are permitting their online casino licensees to continue taking bets from U.S. citizens.

In our last article, we discussed the ever-expanding family of Real Time Gaming powered online casinos. The other software developer taking in the lion's share of U.S. traffic and steadily building up a prodigious progressive jackpot network is the popular Vegas Technology software platform (formerly known as Odds On back in the early days of online gambling).

Most recently, Vegas Technology was responsible for divvying out one of the larger jackpot wins to a single player. Worth over $225,000, this particular jackpot was hit at a very auspicious time - none other than Easter Sunday. There will certainly be some people who question the act of gambling on Easter Sunday, but for the lucky U.S. player who nabbed the jackpot, spinning the reels on Easter was the best decision they could have made.

It was Vegas Technology's Mega Money Mine online slot that broke this weekend. The ever-so-fortunate player, Jackie, who goes by the screen name of DallasWorks, said she is still amazed, especially considering the size of her winnings. It's more common to see $50,000 or $75,000 jackpots being won. A $225,000 jackpot is much less frequent - and to be on the receiving end makes it even more hard-to-believe.

Since the jackpot was hit on Vegas Technology's wide area progressive jackpot network - meaning that several online casino contribute to the same jackpot - it isn't known which licensee was home to the jackpot. But that will be sorted out soon enough. Most likely, it's one of Vegas Technology's more popular and established properties, which can be read about on our Vegas Technology Casinos page.
