Progressive jackpots tracker
When it comes to wins at casinos, progressive jackpots are the top dogs and are responsible for almost all of those huge win stories you see or read about on the news. The way they work is simple: each time a player wagers on a progressive game by either spinning the reels or playing a hand, a small percentage of the player's bet is added to the jackpot pool. In many cases, this pool is shared amongst many different casinos so that you have players from all over the world contributing to the one pot. Once a lucky player hits the magical spin or hand, they win the jackpot and the pool is reset to a starting, or seed, amount.

Casino jackpots infographic
After accumulating data for several years we thought it would be fun and interesting to put together an infographic that distills much of the data into an interesting snapshot. We show you where the big winners are most likely to live and compare the odds of winning a jackpot to other life changing events. What do you think is more likely - to be eaten by a shark or blown up by a terrorist, or win a multi-million dollar jackpot? Check out the infographic for the answer to this and more interesting questions.
Overdue jackpots: fact or fiction?
You may have seen some casinos that display indicators that look like thermometers that are supposed to tell you which jackpot games are due for a big hit, or casinos publicising that their jackpots are "overdue". The reality is that these indicators are complete and utter rubbish. These thermometers play on the well known gambler's fallacy that past results have a bearing on future results. Any time you hear someone say something like "that roulette wheel has spun 7 reds in a row, the next spin has to be black" you're hearing the gambler's fallacy in effect. The reality is that each and every spin of the reels, deal of the cards, or spin of the roulette wheel has exactly the same chance of winning the progressive jackpot, regardless of how long it is or how high the jackpot has risen since the last win. It is even possible, though extremely unlikely, for a progressive jackpot to be won twice on consecutive spins.
So why do we keep track of things like the average win size, and average time between wins if they don't indicate whether a jackpot is overdue? There are a number of reasons, aside from the fact that it is simply very interesting information. Our statistics can help you to choose a game that will maximise your expected payoff should you win. The higher the jackpot is, the lower the casino's advantage over you as a player and it is even possible that a jackpot can rise to the point where it grants the advantage to the player. In fact, we identify jackpots with known break-even amounts and their current RTP values here. Some jackpots that we track have separate values depending on which casino you play at, so looking at the average win values and times can give you an indication of not only which casino has the biggest value currently, but which one rises the quickest and has the most players contributing.
Progressive jackpot payout policies
One of the most important things to look out for when playing progressive games is the casino's payout policy. There are many casinos that limit the amount that they will pay out to winners in a calendar month. For example, the casino's terms may say something like "the maximum a player may withdraw in one month is $9999 or equivalent currency". Some of these casinos will follow that up with "This limit does not apply to progressive jackpot winnings" and that is the right thing to do. Unfortunately many do not. And I don't know about you, but I would be livid if I won several million dollars only to find out after that the casino was going to drip feed me for the next couple of decades, assuming they stay in business that long and don't disappear with my money. Think it can't happen? Think again, because it already has. We analyse the T&Cs of each and every casino we review to try to ascertain the casino's policy in such cases, and we make it a point to try to publicise any hidden traps that we find.
