The biggest jackpots in Germany’s online casinos
Slot machines are among the most popular components of the offers in online casinos, not only in Germany. However, there are not only the classic slots that pay out individual, small to medium winnings like “Book of Dead” or “Starburst”. Slots with a progressive jackpot are becoming increasingly popular. The idea behind it: It doesn’t matter which online casino is played in, the jackpot is always the same and is increased by the stakes of the players. Accordingly, the jackpot is not paid out directly by the casino, but usually by the game provider.
Due to the progressiveness, the jackpot is constantly growing and is sometimes in the six-digit or even seven-digit range. Millions can be won with a single spin. Of course, there is also a good deal of luck involved, but the chances of winning are definitely higher than in the lottery. The best slot machines out there (we used Vulkan Vegas Casino as an example) can’t quite compete.
How does a jackpot slot work?
All slots that are offered usually work on the same principle. With every round that a player pays a bet for, a certain percentage is added to the jackpot. The rules of a jackpot slot do not differ from those of „normal“ slots. The jackpot grows incessantly in this way, because all casinos that offer corresponding slots are networked with each other.
Most Popular Jackpot Slots
Not every game developer can shine with jackpot slots. The most and most popular come from the two providers Microgaming and NetEnt. These are also the slots that have paid out the most winnings so far. In addition, due to their popularity, they are the slots with the highest jackpots ever.
Mega Moolah (Microgaming)
Microgaming’s Mega Moolah slot is by far the most popular jackpot slot and is offered by many online casinos. This slot machine has been around since 2006 and regularly pays out millions in winnings. For example, on April 25, 2017, a player won €8 million at Tipico Casino. Microgaming’s David Reynolds congratulated: “It’s incredible when you think about it that the jackpot has skyrocketed from 4.3 million to 8 million in just one month. It’s even more amazing to see that our previous mobile payout record has been broken. Congratulations to the lucky player on a life-changing win.”
Arabian Nights (NetEnt)
The slot Arabian Nights from the world-renowned provider NetEnt also enjoys great popularity. The jackpot in this slot is also constantly increasing and is usually in the range of several million euros. For example, NetEnt itself paid out a total of 78 million euros in winnings from jackpot slots in 2017. Other popular NetEnt jackpot slots include:
- Mega Fortune
- Hall of Gods
The highest amount ever won with a jackpot slot was won by a player with Mega Fortune: In 2013, 17.9 million euros changed hands. Three years later there was a very high win with the Hall of Gods slot: a Norwegian secured €7,525,932.97 at Casino Folkeautomat.
Siberian Storm (IGT)
Also from the Jackpot Slots category comes Siberian Storm from IGT. Unlike the NetEnt and Microgaming slots we mentioned earlier, IGT is still relatively new but can still boast wins in the tens of millions. The slot has 5 reels and a total of 720 paylines, so many winning combinations are possible even without winning the jackpot.
Worms Reloaded (Blueprint Gaming)
Based on the computer game classic Worms, Worms Reloaded by Blueprint Gaming scores with its great graphics and convincing sound. This slot also has a jackpot, but it is usually very small. This is because this slot is not played by as many players as comparable slots from NetEnt and Microgaming.
Conclusion: Good chances of a high profit
Of course, playing slots remains a game of chance. No strategy can influence whether there is a win or not. Nevertheless, playing jackpot slots can pay off in the long run. The single wins can be life changing. However, it must be expected that something will have to be invested.
