This game is based on the smash hit 2000 movie starring Russell Crowe, and was initially released on a non-progressive format. nevertheless, the basic online slot – featuring original scenes, characters and music from the film – was so common that a progressive version was released, and it iss doing recor levels of business across Playtech’s wide variety of casinos.
The Marvel Mystery Jackpot
Playtech’s other high contribution to the world of progressive jackpots derives from its four-way Marvel Mystery Jackpot: This is activated in the same semi-random fashion as Mega Moolah – make more bets and your luck will be enhanced – and it also has 4 various sizes of jackpot, though which one you get is decided via a turning card game instead of a wheel.
All of the Marvel games feed into this pot, so the total funds available inccrease rapidly. Ironically, most players are appealed to the Marvel games due to their other headline jackpots, that are also normally rather massive – so if you play these games the progressive prize is not the only huge draw.
This is Net Entertainment’s headline contribution to the progressive genre, and it is a mighty fine one. Being a later game in relation to the other progressive online slot games, the theming is more up to date, and if we needed to describe it on one word, that word will be Bling.
This game is a jewel-encrusted, aspirational, testament to conspicuous consumption and we would not want it any other way. You will face with fancy cars, speedboats and other trophy reminders of how good it is to become rich, but win huge here and those kinds of consumables will be well within your reach:
€11.7m was achieved on this game at Betsson Casino in 2011 – a Guinness World Record, and the triple-layered wheel of fortune leading to wins of this size is the most amazing of its kind.
Hall of Gods
Net Entertainment get a second tier of progressive games as well as Mega Fortune, and Hall of Gods is the most prominent of them all, after paying out a €6.4 million prize. Even though there are almost as many Norse warrior-themed slots on the market as there are 1,000 metre-plus mountain peaks in the Fjords, none of them can get close to offering a prize of that magnitude.
The Dark Knight
Microgaming’s progressive slots are not all about retro-styled, older game: The Dark Knight was lauched last year to a great fanfare of approval from fans and critics alike, and spilled a prize in excess of €2.5 million this year.
The game is a market leader regarding theming, and even lets you turn down the opacity of the reals as they spin to show clips from the movie in the background. It is the most visually arresting progressive online slot in the business.
IGT’s progressive pot is shared among a lot of games, all of which have a standalone version and a Megajackpots version – and it is the Megajackpots games you will need to play if you want to win a progressive prize. Actually, a number of IGT games have Megajackpots versions, notably Monopoly and Cluedo – so you are bound to find something suitable for you.
