JACKPOT SLOTS AT ENERGYCASINO
Jackpot slots dominate the Most Played charts at online casinos all over the world, and for a good reason! These incredible casino games offer something a lot more entertaining than any regular bonus feature — jackpots. Games with jackpots all feature familiar reel layouts, beautifully designed symbols and other popular features, like Megaways™ and Free Spins bonuses. Jackpots come in many shapes and sizes, and they can be fixed or progressive. Fixed jackpots offer a predetermined amount as the top prize of the game, which can usually be won through a bonus round or completely at random. Progressive jackpots, on the other hand, take the cake when it comes to payouts! These legendary jackpots are featured in some of the most popular online casino slots, including mega-hits like Mega Moolah, Divine Fortune and Imperial Riches™. Let’s have a look at what jackpot slots are all about!
HOW DID THE FIRST JACKPOTS COME TO BE?
Like all online casino slots, jackpot games have their roots planted in the same soil that sprouted the one-armed bandits. Gambling machines like these operated with real coins, which players would insert for a chance to win. Coins gathered from all losing spins, twists and lever pulls would be the maximum jackpot prize, awarded to a lucky player who manages to hit the most valuable symbol sequence. Today, these slot machines have evolved to accommodate the digital age, offering lottery-like prize pots to the few, luckiest of players.
WHAT IS A PROGRESSIVE JACKPOT?
A progressive jackpot is a cash purse that grows with every real wager placed on the game. How does it work? When players place their bet and spin the reels, a small percentage of that wager will be added to the jackpot total. The more players play, the larger the progressive jackpot will become.
There are three types of progressive jackpots: indefinite, daily and hourly jackpots. Indefinite jackpots do not have any time limit or expiration. The odds of winning them are extremely low; thus, these prize pots tend to keep increasing over months and months of playtime. Unlike these limitless pots, slots with daily jackpots guarantee a jackpot drop once a day. That’s right, one lucky player will snag that sweet jackpot daily. Similarly, hourly jackpots drop every hour. Both the daily and hourly jackpot slots will feature a timer, displayed below each jackpot prize. If no one is lucky enough to win the jackpot and the timer reaches zero — the jackpot will drop then and there. Since the hit frequency is much higher, these types of progressive jackpots tend to be smaller.
PROGRESSIVE JACKPOT SLOTS
When hunting for the next extraordinary game to play, have a look at slots with progressive jackpots. Developers from all over the world bring their best games to the table, topped with a chance to win one of the many jackpots. These games come in a variety of themes; venture to the depths of the Atlantic in search of Atlantean Treasures, open the legendary Book of Atem, or prove your worth to the deities of Ancient Greece in a bid for wow-tastic winnings!
So, how does one go about winning the best jackpot in Ireland? The first — and most important — thing to keep in mind is that jackpots and jackpot slots are, by nature, of incredibly high volatility. This means that while the potential winnings are quite large, the odds of landing them are quite low. Across all games, the jackpot drops are random, but some are locked behind additional features. In NetEnt’s Divine Fortune, for example, players must first trigger the game’s bonus feature. In this feature, the gameplay occurs on an alternate set of reels with different mechanics. The number of rows filled with golden coins will determine which of the jackpots the player wins, if they manage to fill any of the rows at all. In other online slots, jackpots may require a collection mechanic to complete (eg: gather 40 Bonus symbols to activate the Jackpot feature). In others, the jackpot may simply drop at random on any spin!
Next, take a look at the game’s rules before you place your wager and spin the reels. Jackpot slots tend to be some of the most innovative games, with plenty of features and special symbols. Understanding how these symbols and features work may help you in your gameplay, so have a look! Additionally, the rules of the game may stipulate whether or not there is a minimum betting prerequisite to qualify for the jackpot, or if wagering a certain amount may influence the chances of that jackpot win. You’ll find that some jackpot games recommend max betting for the highest chances of winning the ultimate prize; however, please be wary of such high-risk betting and make sure that all of your casino gambling decisions are responsible.
At EnergyCasino, players can find a wide selection of progressive jackpot slots in a variety of game themes. To browse our portfolio of jackpot slots, head to the Casino lobby and filter by ‘Jackpot’ or ‘Daily Jackpots’. You’ll find a variety of online jackpot slots that will take you on adventures through Ancient Egypt to the Wild West and into the most enchanting fantasy universes! Have a look and try your luck at awesome titles like Absolootly Mad Mega Moolah, Atlantis, and Western Gold.
BEST ONLINE JACKPOT SLOTS
Just like with lotteries around the world, millions of players enjoy jackpot slots. With so many to choose from, it’s hard to pick the best online jackpot slots around! To help you get started, here are some of our player’s favourite jackpot games:
- MEGA MOOLAH — Microgaming’s Mega Moolah the most well-known jackpot slot of all. This game transports you to the African wilderness, where magnificent beasts seek refuge from the scorching savannah sun. Mega Moolah is a network jackpot slot with FOUR progressive jackpots, which means that wagers from players across all online casinos that offer Mega Moolah will increase the jackpot totals. The drops are incredibly rare, but they tend to reach six to seven figures by the time another lucky player snags the win. Apart from the four jackpots of varying sizes, Mega Moolah players will also enjoy a Free Spins bonus round.
- MEGA FORTUNE — Mega Fortune is another incredible jackpot slot where a mega-fortunate player will win the ultimate jackpot prize. This game from NetEnt features three progressive jackpots: the Rapid, Major and Mega jackpots. For a chance to win one of the jackpots, players must land three Bonus symbols. Aside from the three jackpots, players can also enjoy a round of Free Spins and decent payouts for regular wins.
- HALL OF GODS — NetEnt hits the home run yet again with Hall of Gods, where Thor, Loki, Odin and Idun oversee the reels and your quest for the jackpot. This online slot also has three jackpots, attainable through the Pick and Win bonus feature. In this bonus round, players must use Thor’s hammer to shatter the shields in hopes of uncovering one of the jackpots.
- DIVINE FORTUNE — NetEnt’s Divine Fortune is a divine take on the fan-favourite Mega Fortune slot. In this game, players can activate the jackpot bonus round to win the Minor, Major or Mega jackpots. The number of rows that players fill with special coins will determine which of the jackpots is awarded, if the player manages to fill any of the rows at all. Divine Fortune also entertains the players with Falling Wild Respins, Free Spins and Wild on Wild features.
- CASH SPLASH - 3 REEL — This minimalist slot from Microgaming takes the best of classic gameplay and meshes it with the modern jackpot features. Cash Splash is also one of the oldest jackpot slots around! This game features one progressive jackpot, which can be won by landing five Cash Splash symbols across the 15th payline.
FREE JACKPOT SLOTS
If it’s your first time playing jackpot slots or you’re looking to try out some new games, you should consider playing free demos before you place any real-money bets. All wagers and winnings in demos are virtual, but you can still enjoy all of the same features and fantastic bonus rounds that they offer. Playing free demos is also a great way to familiarise yourself with the inner workings of online slots, making it a perfect opportunity for new players to explore the casino’s portfolio.
Playing for free will also help you gain a better understanding of the game’s RTP and volatility which, in turn, can aid you in making responsible gambling decisions while selecting the best jackpot slot that suits your betting preferences. Before you wager real cash on online jackpot slots, make sure that you play through the demo to find out how the bonus rounds and jackpots are activated.
All set? To play the demos you may need to register and verify your casino account, as not all jurisdictions allow site visitors to partake in gambling activities, albeit with virtual funds. To access the demos, head to our Casino lobby, search for the game of your choice and hover over the thumbnail to bring up the ‘DEMO’ button. Click, spin and enjoy unlimited fun!

These games bring in the best elements of classic slot machine gameplay and merge them with fantastic jackpot prizes. Most Vegas jackpot slots have fixed jackpots, just like in brick-and-mortar casinos, but some feature progressive ones as well. If you’re longing for familiar fruity symbols, Jokers and straight-to-the-point gameplay, then check out these hits: Cash Splash, Joker Wild, King Cashalot, Fruit Fiesta, Treasure Nile and Tunzamunni.
✅ WHAT IS A JACKPOT SLOT?
Jackpot slots are online casino slots that feature jackpot prizes of varying sizes. These games are based on the standard slot gameplay, with a set of reels, symbols and paylines. In addition to the game’s regular symbol payouts, jackpot slots put the cherry on top with an additional, usually considerably larger, top prize. More advanced jackpot slots may feature mechanics like Megaways™ and additional features such as multipliers, Free Spins bonus rounds, Sticky Wilds and others.
✅ IS IT POSSIBLE TO WIN A JACKPOT?
Just like playing the lottery, the chances of winning a jackpot are very low. This is especially true of slots with progressive jackpots. These games take a percentage of every real wager staked on the game and add it to the jackpot total. The nature of these massive jackpots is clear: the more players bet, the larger the jackpot will be. As the chances of winning this ultimate prize are so incredibly low, progressive pots tend to grow to six and seven-figure sums over many months of gameplay.
When you play jackpot slots online, keep in mind that all slots are games of chance. While some games may suggest max betting to increase your chances of hitting the big win, the odds of that happening are still extremely low. Make sure to read through the slot’s rules carefully, and please play responsibly.
✅ HOW DO YOU PLAY JACKPOT SLOTS?
To enjoy the best jackpot slots, register an account at EnergyCasino and head to the Casino lobby and filter the games by ‘Jackpot’ or ‘Daily Jackpots’. You can play for free through the demo mode or try your luck with real wagers. To place a bet on the jackpot slot of your choice, you will have to place a deposit using one of the many payment methods available at EnergyCasino, such as PayPal, Skrill, Neteller, Visa or others.
Be sure to look through the rules of the game carefully, as they will explain exactly what you need to do and what to look out for to activate the jackpot bonus rounds or other game features, such as Free Spins.
✅ HOW DO JACKPOT SLOTS WORK?
Like regular online slots, jackpot slots also have a set of reels, symbols and paylines. Wins are attributed to sequences of identical symbols that fall along one of these paylines. More modern slots will feature a variety of bonus rounds, like Free Spins, Wheel of Fortune, or mini-games. These bonuses offer the players a chance to win larger prizes and to enjoy other features like Sticky Wilds, Expanding symbols and stacking multipliers. Much like these extra-special features, jackpots are often available only through the game’s bonus round. In other games, winning the jackpot can occur entirely at random (on any spin). If you’re not interested in interactive gameplay with lots of extra features, you can still enjoy a variety of jackpot slots that are more similar to traditional, land-based casino slot machines. These slots feature straightforward gameplay, familiar symbols and a chance to win the jackpot simply by landing a sequence of specified symbols across one of the paylines.
✅ DO ALL ONLINE SLOTS HAVE JACKPOTS?
No, far from all! Jackpots are the ultimate prize, available only on a select few slots. Many of these games have gained worldwide popularity, so no matter which online casino you choose — you are likely to find your favourite jackpot slots there.
✅ CAN I PLAY FREE DEMO JACKPOT SLOTS?
You can play some jackpot slots for free through the demos, but not all. Games like Mega Moolah can only be enjoyed with real wagers but others, like Mega Fortune and Wheel of Wishes, do have a free-to-play demo version. All winnings and wagers in demos are entirely virtual, and winning the game’s legendary jackpot is impossible. Depending on the jurisdictions, players may need to register and verify their casino account to play the demos.
