Megasaur Slot for Mega Wins

April 27, 2016 Category :Games Off

Megasaur is the perfect slot for dino-fans looking for a mega win and this progressive jackpot slot is a great option if you fancy a fun slot with a huge jackpot, loads of wilds, a great bonus feature and colorful graphics.

Megasaur is produced by Realtime Gaming (RTG) and is available at a good range of the best US legal online casinos and online slots sites. If you like your real money slots with a HUGE top prizes, you’ll be delighted to know that Megasaur has previously paid out a $1m plus progressive and, more importantly, the current jackpot stands at almost $991,000.

The big question is, should you play it now or wait for it to hit seven figures but risk missing out if someone gets to the dinosaur bounty before you do? Well, what’s $9,000 between friends? If you win $991,000 we doubt you’ll have too many complaints so our advice is to check out this slot right now and see if you can land the big one.

To do that you’ll need to be playing Megasaur for the maximum coin value, which means all 25 lines of this five reel slot at the maximum 20c per line, for a total spin value of five bucks. Note that if you are playing a lower spin value you will still win a portion of the progressive if you land the relevant symbols. In addition, to claim the Megasaur progressive, you actually need to be in the bonus feature and THEN hit all five of the progressive/scatter volcano moon symbols.

In other words, you’ll need to get at least three scatters in a standard game to enter the feature and then get all five whilst in the feature. You didn’t think they were giving a million bucks away to just anyone did you? That might sound hard but, as said, Megasaur has already created one millionaire and it will more than likely create another one soon. You’ve got to be in it to win it!

And, aside from the top prize, there are plenty of other great reasons to try this RTG slot. Firstly there is the aforementioned scatter and bonus feature. You can win up to 30 free spins, with a minimum of six, virtually guaranteeing a big win, whilst there are not one but two wilds, with both being grouped.

The Green Megasaur appears on the 2nd reel and the Red Megasaur on the 4th. The latter wild delivers double payouts on all wins and this is another route to dino-riches on this brilliant slot.

Win Pinata Millions at Jackpot Pinatas Online Slot

March 31, 2016 Category :Games Off

Jackpot Piñatas is a brilliant progressive slot that could well change your life in one spin of Piñata magic. This colorful and vibrant slot from US real money casino experts RTG (Realtime Gaming) boasts a massive seven figure jackpot at the time of writing worth almost $1.8m! If you like the sound of winning almost $2m from the comfort of your own home with just one spin of a great slot, read on for the lowdown on Jackpot Piñatas.

If you’ve played many of RTG’s exciting slots you’ll recognize the format and gameplay of this five reel, 20 line progressive. It looks, feels and sounds just like many of the other great slots produced by RTG and that means you’ll instantly feel at home, whilst even if you’re new to such slots, the simple and intuitive gameplay makes things very quick and easy to grasp.

In order to get your hands on the $1.8m progressive jackpot you’ll need to get five of the bull piñata symbols on a valid payline. We said “valid payline” but in actual fact all lines will be in play on all spins because – and this is the only real downside of Jackpot Piñatas – the slot has a fixed $5 spin value which is 25 cents per line for all 20 lines.

Whilst no other win will really come close to the main jackpot, there are still huge wins available for the other piñatas, with five donkey piñatas paying out 20,000 credits and five dog piñatas a still-generous 1,000.

The donkey is actually the wild in general play, swapping for all other symbols aside from the other two piñatas. Similarly, as well as landing you a huge win, the dog piñata is the scatter/bonus symbol, with three of these landing you a win of three credits but, far more importantly, also entering you into the excellent bonus feature.

In our opinion the bonus on Jackpot Piñatas is one of the best around, mainly because it comes in two stages. First you get to two of the three displayed piñata symbols, revealing cash prizes worth up to 200 times your initial bet. Then should one of your picks contain a rose you’ll win an extra bonus round. If you don’t find a rose you’ll go to the free spins round, and with up to 25 free spins available, plus double prizes and extra piñatas, you could end up with a monster of a win.

As said, Jackpot Piñatas is a great slot so with the amazing progressive jackpot and bonus feature detailed above, why not see for yourself?

UK Soldier Wins $20m from 40c Spin

October 14, 2015 Category :General Off

Progressive slots can change lives in an instant and that’s exactly what happened to one lucky English casino fan last week when he won around €18m playing an online progressive jackpot slot!

Jon Heywood, a 26-year-old from Cheshire in the north west of England, won an amazing $20.2m playing at European online casino Betway. Unfortunately US players can’t play at Betway but there are plenty of other US-friendly casinos that offer huge progressive jackpots, with several Realtime Gaming slots boasting jackpots of around $2m.

Heywood had previously toured in Afghanistan with the British Army but he can put all work concerns aside now after landing his massive win on the famous Mega Moolah slot. The win, believed to be a world record for an online slot, is even more astounding given that the lucky Brit was playing for around 38 cents per spin!

Microgaming, who provide the slot’s software, said his company had paid out more than €500m in progressive jackpots since the company was founded in 1998 and said they hoped Heywood would enjoy his “life-changing and historic win”.

In terms of how he spends his fortune, Heywood has prioritized his family, with the number one item on his list the best possible medical attention for his father, who requires a lung and heart transplant. Next on his list is a luxurious cruise around the Mediterranean for his family and friends and then, having looked after others, his thoughts turned to an upgrade on his aging Fiat Punto car.

His current vehicle costs around $15,000 but the 26-year-old multi-millionaire said, “I’m trying not to get carried away and I really don’t know what else I’m going to buy with the money, apart from a yellow Bentley Continental GT!”

The classy Bentley will set him back around $250,000 but it doesn’t sound like he’ll be getting too carried away with his win – he kept it secret for three days! We don’t know how he managed to hide a $20m slots win – we get excited if we hit a bonus round! He even went to work the next day after his amazing win but we doubt he’ll be going back anytime soon!


What are Progressive Slots?

August 21, 2015 Category :General Off

Progressive slots are basically exactly the same as any online real money slots… until it comes to the jackpots, which can be worth millions of dollars and which change your life in just one spin!

Sometimes called jackpot slots, or just progressives, progressive slots are linked to other slots in order to create jackpots much higher than could normally be paid by just a single slot. Slots are usually networked with other slots of the same name, slots at partner casinos and/or according to the software that powers them.

Many of the best progressive slots available at USA online casinos come from RTG, Realtime Gaming. To give you an idea of the types of prizes that you can win playing jackpot slots, let’s take a look at some of the RTG jackpots available at the time of writing:

  • Aztec’s Millions – this progressive sequel to Aztec’s Treasure has a jackpot of more than $1.7m
  • Jackpot Pinatas – this fun slot currently stands at almost $1.8m
  • Shopping Spree II – you could do a lot of shopping with the current jackpot of more than $350,000
  • Jackpot Cleopatra’s Gold – this Egyptian-themed slot classic has a jackpot of $357,000

When you play a progressive slot a small portion of your bet from each spin goes towards the linked jackpot, with most of the money going to the standard payouts available on your individual slot. However, whilst the contribution to the progressive jackpot may be just a cent or less per spin, with hundreds of slots linked and slots fans spinning those reels 24 hours a day, some huge jackpots soon accrue.

Playing progressive slots is more or less exactly the same as playing normal online slots. The only thing to check is whether the progressive prize is available on the stake you select. Some slots may only trigger the biggest jackpot if you are playing all lines or coins or have the maximum coin value, or some combination of those three factors.

We can’t lie to you, your odds of hitting a progressive jackpot are slim but in that respect they are like playing the lotto. Small stakes, long odds and huge prizes, but slots like Aztec’s Millions are a whole lot more fun to play than lotto so why not claim a casino bonus today and give them a try with some free cash?!
