Slot games with progressive jackpots have become extremely popular both online and offline, especially the ones where a jackpot is fed jointly by a large number of machines.
If you are playing slots online, you probably already know about jackpot slots such as Mega Fortune, Mega Fortune Dreams, Arabian Nights, Mega Moolah, and Hall of Gods – all famous for having paid out numerous extremely big progressive jackpots.
Pooled vs. local progressive jackpots online
When you play slots online, you will come across both pooled progressive jackpots and local progressive jackpots. A pooled progressive jackpot is fed by players in numerous online casinos (that doesn’t belong to the same casino group), while a local progressive jackpot is fed only by players in a specific casino or group of casinos (with the same owner).
One good example of this is the slot Arabian Nights, since it can come with either a local or a pooled progressiv jackpot. If you play Arabian Nights in Paf Casino, the progressive jackpot is local. It is only fed by wagers in Paf Casino and it can only be won by playing in Paf Casino. Other examples of online casinos that feature a local Arabian Nights progressiv jackpot are Betsson, Unibet and Portomaso.
If you on the other hand skip over to casinos such as Casumo, NordicBet Casino and InterCasino, you will find that the size of the progressive jackpot for Arabian Nights is the same size in all of these casinos – because they are all connected to a pooled jackpot which they are feeding together and that can be won in any of the connected online casinos.
