Spirit of the Inca boiling pot jackpots

2 replies • Last post

I was doing a bit of work on our jackpots tracker last week and I noticed something that I thought many of you would like to be aware of. RTG casinos have a game called Spirit of the Inca which has five different progressive jackpots. The jackpots correspond to the bet level you make in the game and they are guaranteed to be won when they hit a certain boiling pot value, if not sooner.

Here are the five levels, the bet amount needed to qualify, the boiling pot value and the current value:

Yep that means that the Maxi level jackpot is extremely close to going off. That said, these jackpots increase in value very slowly. That is because your bet is distributed between the jackpot that you qualify for and all the ones below it. i.e. if you bet $3.50 you're contributing to the Maxi, Major, Minor, and Mini jackpots. I had a play at it myself and I reckon the Maxi jackpot would only increase by a cent or so for every three or four spins I made.

The way they work is that as soon as a spin contribution makes it hit the boiling pot amount, the person who made that spin wins the jackpot. So once this thing hits $249,900 or so its going to be a race to see who can hit the lucky spin.

So keep an eye on it over the coming weeks. And if you do decide to chase this one please don't play at one of the many rogue-ass RTG casinos out there that will make you wait years to get all the money, assuming they pay you at all. Check out our RTG casinos list if you're not sure how reputable the one you like to play at is.

I've played this game a decent amount and noticed that while some of the jackpots were relatively close to their must-hit-by values, you're right that they advance extremely slowly. I don't think many people play them to be honest. Most of then have never even been hit according to your jackpot tracker.

Are these kinds of WAP jackpots paid by RTG directly and not subject to the tiny $2500 max withdrawal most the casinos limit you to per week?

They are pooled across all RTG casinos so they should be paid by RTG. I still wouldn't want to chance it at one of the many rogues though.

Since I wrote the above post yesterday the Maxi jackpot has only increased by $1 and the Mini by $8, so its going to take a while before the Maxi gets near the must win amount. But you would expect it to accelerate as it gets closer so its worth keeping an eye on.

Actually a quick back of the envelope calculation - if the Maxi increases at $5 a day its still going to take more than a year to get up to the must win amount. So maybe not as close as it appears unless someone starts pumping money into it.
