Progressive jackpot history
WowPot is a four level progressive slots jackpot offered by casinos that feature games from game development heavyweight Microgaming. It can by won by playing one of several different games that all contribute a percentage of each wager to the jackpot pool. Despite the identical name, it is not the same WowPot jackpot that Microgaming used to offer on a couple of classic styled slot machines. This one replaced Microgaming's older jackpot in early 2020.
The four tiers of the WowPot jackpot, in order of largest to smallest, are the Mega, Major, Minor, and Mini. The second largest "Major" tier is the one were are concerned with on this page. Despite being only the second highest tier of the WowPot jackpot, it has risen to and been won for more than a million Euros already, so it is not to be sneezed at. The jackpot starts at a healthy €50,000 each time it is reseeded after a win. The games you may play to win this jackpot include the following:
African Legends is a 243 way slot that is set on the Serengeti. It is unique amongst the lot below in that the WowPot Major is the only jackpot that you can win while playing it - the Mega, Minor, and Mini are not available at all on this game.
Players that prefer the traditional stylings of bars, bells, sevens, cherries, and diamonds might want to check out 9 Blazing Diamonds when shooting for the WowPot jackpot. It is a modern 25 payline game styled with slot machine classics and offers a bonus wheel round if you manage to land the all important wheel scatter symbol on reels 1, 3, and 5.
Book of Atem take you to ancient Egypt in a game that is able to meld two slots themes that have been flogged so much you would think they were well and truly dead by now. I am referring to ancient Egypt of course and the "Book of" expanding scatter symbol mechanic that everyone has copied from Novomatic's Book of Ra.
For something completely different you can try Queen of Alexandria which is, wait for it, another ancient Egypt themed slot. This one is a 10 payline game that pays both ways, and you can win the jackpot by triggering a bonus wheel styled bonus round by collecting jewels as you play.
If Victorian era detective tales are more your thing, then Sherlock & Moriarty will be right up your alley. Collect magnifying glasses as you play this one to improve your chances of chance of triggering the WowPot jackpot reel bonus round.
Sisters of Oz is a much more adult take on the tale of the Wizard of Oz. The game features four stunning sexy witch sisters who you will be trying to accumulate gold coins for in their cauldron to give you the chance of triggering that sweet bonus round.
Another take on the legend of the riches of Aladdin's Cave is presented in Wheel of Wishes. It has gigantic 3x3 sized symbols on the centre three reels of five, and if you manage to land the entire jackpot wheel symbol in those positions, you'll earn a shot at the big one.
