$1.26 Million Hit at RTG Casinos; New Video Slot Released

Real Time Gaming Software has added a new video slot to its fast-growing repertoire of casino games that have become one of the most popular software platforms with U.S. players and progressive jackpot hunters in the last five years. Called "The Mayan Queen", this 5-reel, 25-payline bonus slot is the latest progressive jackpot game to be launched on the internet, and by the looks of it, has great potential for becoming another million dollar game.

With most progressive jackpot games offering twenty or more reels, it can be a challenge to make the max bet on all reels in order to become eligible for winning the full progressive jackpot. And with Mayan Queen, nothing is different. Wagers can range from 1 penny to $5 per payline, which for the max bet on all reels, amounts to $125 (25 x $5). If you stick to the penny bet, you're only looking at a quarter wager, while a quarter bet on all paylines amounts to a reasonable $6 wager.

Real Time Gaming already has a strong lineup of progressive jackpot online slots that pay a pretty penny - not to mention costing a pretty penny to play. But the fact of the matter is that this is what it takes to get the progressive jackpot up to the million dollar mark. It's no different with Microgaming online casinos, Playtech nor Cryptologic (non of which are open to U.S. players). And since RTG has a large network of 100+ online casinos, which as mentioned, are very popular with U.S. players, there are several jackpots that consistently surpass the $1 million mark, not to mention payout.

Just this last weekend, RTG casinos helping build up the Aztec Millions progressive video slot, were home to the latest online gambling millionaire. The jackpot, which has a default value of $1 million to begin with, busted at $1.26 million for one lucky player now in the process of getting this life-changing check cleared. Since this is a wide area jackpot having just hit, it is still being determined which RTG casino the lucky player calls home. OCS is guessing it was at any of the online casinos listed on our RTG Casinos page, which represents the best of the best.

Two other RTG progressive jackpot games are still worth over $1 million. Jackpot Pinatas is reached the $1.4 million mark, while the popular Shopping Spree & Mid-Life Crises games are worth over $1 million.

As for Mayan Queen, notwithstanding the random progressive jackpot, it offers a max win of $150,000. A scatter symbol (the Emerald) triggers a free spins feature that awards 6 free spins when three or more Emeralds appear on the reels at once. In the free spin bonus mode, the Mayan Queen (wild symbol) is expanded across all paylines of Reel 3, thus facilitating further wins. As a multiplier, the scatter symbol can award up to 500 times the original wager.

In terms of the look and feel of Mayan Queen, a jungle-like theme invoking the Mayan culture and society sums up this slot. Symbols include Mayan jewelry, pottery, treasure and the sacred leopard. The color scheme is made up of yellow, shades of gold, and the iconic turquoise.

Official launch of Mayan Queen was on September 16, 2009, and can now be played at all Real Time Gaming online casino licensees via download or Flash.
