Online Progressive Jackpots Hit Big to Start off Weekend

The weekend is just arriving and already there have been three large progressive jackpot wins, not to mention the hundreds of thousands of dollars dolled out to the masses of online gamblers currently spinning the wheels of steel (not record players, but slot machines) and flipping the cards.

One of the jackpots was hit on Cryptologic Software's popular Marvel Superhero slots series of games. It was worth nearly $16,000. The original Marvel slots games (Playtech now has a series of their own), Cryptologic's Marvel slots have been enormously successful not just because of the comic book oriented fun they offer, but probably more so because of the potential of large progressive jackpots.

The second largest of the progressive jackpots hit was worth $17,474, and occurred on the U.S. facing Rival Gaming online casinos network. The game to bust was none other than Mega Moolah, which is quickly becoming Rival Gaming's most popular and largest progressive slot machine. This latest jackpot was the sixth big jackpot hit in the last three months.

The largest jackpot of the trio, not surprisingly took place at Microgaming's network of non U.S. facing online casinos. One of the oldest and largest networks in business today, Microgaming's progressive jackpots consistently return some of the largest wins ever recorded. The jackpot in question this time around was worth $39,229, and was hit on the Mega Major Moolah slot game. Offering four different progressive jackpots, Mega Major Moola is something of a hybrid between Major Millions and Mega Moolah, and was launched almost three years ago to the day.

All these winnings sounds great, does it not? So great, makes you want to go out and start gambling at an online casino right now, right? Well, not so fast. First allow me to offer a disclaimer that big jackpot wins do not occur as frequently as you might think.

In fact, this latest batch of jackpot wins actually occurred following something of a dry patch. Winning one is strictly a matter of luck, and most veteran slots players know it comes down to being in the right place at the right time. But of course you have to be online and wagering real money, not to mention the fact that in order to qualify for the main progressive jackpot, you must wager the maximum amount.

So, in a way, there is some strategic planning to winning a progressive jackpot. Just remember, while you have to be playing to be in the game, don't forget to have fun knowing that playing online casino slots is all about the journey and not the destination.
