What is a Jackpot Slot?
Playing standard online slots is great fun but wait until you experience the excitement and thrills of playing for big-money. Jackpots and progressive slots pool a small percentage of all player stakes which go towards a main cash prize – every time you make a bet, the jackpot rises.
For most progressive slot games, there’s absolutely no ceiling on the amount which can be won. What’s more, a lot of jackpot slots are linked together and form part of an extensive network of online casinos. This helps boost pay-outs even further and can make for some life-changing jackpots! Here’s a guide to the types of jackpots/progressive slots you can play at Red Spins.
Standalone/In House Jackpot Slots
Although this kind of jackpot slot game isn’t linked to others, it follows the same principle as most progressive slots with all stakes contributing to a large prize. However, their pay-outs are limited to the stake money of players visiting the actual site offering the game. The solution is to play at an online casino such as Red Spins Canada, which features a massive use-base. This means that you can still walk away with a lot of money when the jackpot finally falls.
Networked Jackpot Slots
These types of progressive slots are among the most popular online slots in the industry for the simple reason that they’re all linked together and offer huge pay-outs. Some of the most popular versions come from gaming giants such as IGT whose games are available at hundreds of online casinos. Therefore, you don’t have to be a math genius to figure out that if you win the jackpot on one of these online slot games, chances are you’ll be mixing it with jet-setters for the rest of your life – or at least for an extended period.
Progressive Slots at Red Spins
We should point out that not all progressive jackpots are going to be large enough to justify a visit to your nearest Ferrari dealership. Multi-million dollar pay-outs from slots are not regular occurrences! Nevertheless, for most progressive slots the potential pay-outs are much, much larger than standard online slot games. So which specific jackpot slots can you play at Red Spins Canada? Here’s a sample.
Great Rhino – Pragmatic Play

Tips on Playing Jackpots and Progressive Slot Games
For most progressive slot games, you’ll need to place the maximum bet to be eligible for the big pay-out. This isn’t the case for every single one, but the jackpots on most progressive slots can only be accessed by max-bet players – something to consider when calculating your gambling budget.
Timing can also have a huge impact on your chances of winning a progressive slot prize. So one of the first things you should do before playing one of these slot games is to check the last time somebody hit a jackpot. If there’s been a recent winner, then maybe hold off for a while. But if the jackpot is sizable, it’s worth taking a closer look. Also try to find out about the size of the jackpot that was paid out as well as the average win size.
While being clued up on some of these factors will be of help, there’s obviously no guarantee that you’ll land the big one. With that said, if you furnish yourself with enough information about a specific jackpot slot or progressive game, you will at least improve your chances of winning ever so slightly.
Some developers such as Microgaming include ‘jackpot thermometers’ which indicate the likelihood of a game paying out its maximum prize. Based on elements such as pay-out frequency and the last date a jackpot was won, these visual clues can prove extremely helpful in tracking down a jackpot slot that’s about to make somebody rich.

Before committing your real money, you can play jackpots and progressive slots for free. Each game at Red Spins is available with a demo version which plays just like the real thing. It’s a great way to get a feel for a jackpot slot game without denting your budget.
A Brief History of Progressive Slots
Jackpots slots can be traced back to 1986 when IGT released the very first progressive slot, Megabucks. Unlike all other slot games of the time, its jackpot was not fixed but instead drew funds from player stakes. By today’s standards, the technology that went into these early machines was primitive to say the least – connectivity was dependent on phone lines and archaic modems. IGT initially guaranteed to pay $1 million dollars to get the ball rolling. Thereafter, the jackpot was generated by player bets. Unsurprisingly, gamers flocked to the new jackpot slot and in a little over a year after its launch, the first prize of $4,988,842.17 was paid out to one lucky slots enthusiast.
Top Online Jackpot Wins
To give you an idea of kind of payouts possible with jackpot slots and progressives, check out our list below. It could be you!
Yes that’s right, 18 million Euros, which roughly equates to around $25 million Canadian dollars. This astronomical sum was paid out to a lucky 40 year old gamer after he spent just 25c – this of course makes a mockery of our helpful advice about making maximum bets when playing jackpot slot games. Anyway, this particular millionaire was understandably quite ruffled by his once-in-a-lifetime win, admitting that he didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
This prize went to a UK soldier in 2015 when he too decided to play with the lowest betting denomination possible. Won on a Microgaming progressive slot, the jackpot remains the biggest ever paid out on a UK jackpot slot.
Then you’ve got the guy with no name from Norway. When he scooped the big prize back in 2011, it set a Guinness World record for the largest jackpot slot payout. Although the tidy sum of €11,736,375 has been surpassed a couple of times since, this one really started to get people’s attention. To this day, the winner remains anonymous.
In at number four we’ve got a Swede by the name of Alexander and a jackpot of over $13 million Canadian dollars. After playing at the Folkeautomaten casino the lucky son of a…so and so walked away with an eye-watering booty – high-fives all round then.
