Jackpot Pool Reaches $3 Million

April 19th, 2011  |  Published in Casino News

The jackpot pool of a single online gaming software provider is the total amount of all progressive jackpot games. However, when a player places a wager at a specific progressive jackpot game, they are playing for only the amount of that game, not the entire network. However, online casinos boast the total amount of the jackpot pool to draw in new players.

The Total Network Jackpot Pool

Currently, the total network jackpot pool of Playtech is over $3 million. The current largest jackpot is found in the Marvel-branded online slot games. The tiered jackpots known as, “Ultimate Power”, boasts a jackpot with the current value at $693,527 and growing. However, this is a networked amount among all Marvel-brand games like Iron Man and Blade.

Ultimate Power Jackpot

The jackpot features four independent levels with entry into the jackpot set randomly. Since Ultimate Power is the largest of the networked jackpots, it is hit the least often, being only hit twice since its creation. Of the two hits, the average amount was $843,403 so players are expecting this soon.

Older Jackpot Games

The second largest jackpot is Gold Rally, an older but popular online slot game. The jackpot is currently at $661,369 and growing. The highest the jackpot has reached during its three years in existence is $2 million. The last hit was two months ago for $1.6 million so players prefer to wait until the amount passes $1 million. Beach Life is another popular vintage game with a higher jackpot currently at $146,849.

Jackpot Darts

Additionally, Jackpot Darts progressive games are two other major contributors to the Playtech pool. Jackpot Darts $3 is currently paying out $312,062 while Jackpot Darts $2 is set at $204,090. With both games, if the player wagers on all darts hitting the bull’s eye, they will win the jackpot. If only one or two hits the bull’s eye, a fixed payout of 20 times and 2,000 times the bet are awarded to the player.

Queen of the Pyramids 25c

Queen of the Pyramids 25c is the last largest contributor in the Playtech portfolio. The game is a nine payline online video slot game featuring a coin size of 25c. The jackpot has accrued to $166,382. Queen of the Pyramids 25c is a QuickFire progressive slot game that hits on average twice per week.

Based on historical trends, it appears as if each of these games is on the cusp of hitting, making one player a very happy individual. Playtech has always offered a variety of excellent games and large, fun progressive jackpots to match.
