With so many different slot machines available to spin through at our online casino it can be overwhelming to see just how many unique game features there are to set each of the slots apart. One of the most popular types of casino games are the jackpot slots that we have available - particularly the progressive slots - but what are these and how do they differ from normal jackpot slots?

We decided to shine a spotlight on these potentially high-paying slot games, so if you’re brand new to playing online or if you’re just curious about why we think you should play progressive slots, read on and discover some of these fist pump-worthy titles - along with information on the all-important features on offer.

All About Progressive Slots

Progressive jackpot slots, as the name might suggest, offer a jackpot prize that gets progressively bigger. The way this works is dependent on the progressive slots that you choose to play. For example, Jackpot King titles are some of the most popular and work slightly differently to some other progressive jackpots. Jackpot King slots cover a huge number of titles - and every time somebody spins through one of these slots, the combined progressive jackpot increases!

In contrast, some progressive jackpots are limited to being increased every time a player spins on that particular game - it all depends on the game in question, so be sure to check before you start playing. We always make sure to write up a detailed analysis of what’s on offer in the game and to answer any questions that we expect our players to have.

While progressive slots remain popular in our online casino, they aren’t the only unique type of slot game available at Pink Casino. You could also spin through some of our payline-packed Megaways titles, have a flutter on a branded slot, or discover some classic games that are reminiscent of the traditional land-based experience. We’ve got plenty of variety and choice - all you need to do is decide which games suit your gameplay preferences.

How do You Win a Progressive Jackpot?

The jackpot prize in progressives can be won in similar ways to a standard prize - and that is by spinning the reels and looking for a winning combination of symbols across a payline. The symbols you will need to trigger the jackpot prize will vary depending on which game you’re playing. Some of our titles require you to land a bonus symbol in specific positions whereas other games will also require you to spin a wheel to determine your prize - which could be the maximum available jackpot!

As progressive slots are random in nature there is no way to guarantee that the slot you’re playing will pay out at all - the concept of knowing when a slot is going to hit or a machine being due to win is entirely false. There’s no way to know if or when a slot is going to pay out. You can read more about our guide to highest RTP slots over on our casino blog.

How to Play Progressive Slots

Playing progressive slots generally comes with the same rules as playing standard slots but if you’re completely new to playing these games online we’ve broken down the key gameplay components below:

Stake: Adjusting your stake is as simple as using the corresponding (-) and (+) buttons to adjust the amount of money you want to spend each time the reels spin. Some progressive slots do have slightly different buttons - always make sure you read the game rules and instructions before you start playing your game of choice. If there are any buttons that are different from the industry norm, we’ll highlight this in our game overviews which you can read before you start playing.

Spin: The Spin button is almost always the most noticeable icon on the screen and will often have a one-way arrow to signify a single spin of the reels. Pressing this will start a spin which will deduct the current stake from your available balance - be sure to double-check this before you spin.

Autoplay: Autoplay is a great alternative to repeatedly pressing the Spin button - if you have a budget in mind for your total progressive slots gameplay then using Autoplay is a fantastic setting to look at. Set the number of spins you want to play through at the current stake and choose your win and/or loss limit before you get going.
