Progressive slot payouts were born out of the drive by casinos to attract as many customers as possible.

The dream of winning hundreds or millions of dollars is a dream worth chasing.

Here is how Progressive jackpot works

A large number of slot machines, like Mega Moolah, Wheel of Fortune and Deal or No Deal, are networked together and are programmed to deposit a small fraction of every bet made on each table in a central pot. The pool of deposits made is what is called progressive, and it gets larger as more people play on those tables (regular payouts still take place on the tables). The progressive is now offered for winning but at small odds making the accumulated cash very huge and hard to hit.

Online casinos have their networks of machines usually administered by the machine’s software manufacturer which means the system can run in multiple locations of the world. This large network is responsible for the fast patronage progressive machines enjoy in online casinos.
