Random Jackpots Explained
Now, if you have never come across Random Jackpot slot games before, or maybe you have played them but haven't a clue how they work, we have put together the following article to help you get your head around the inner workings of these great new slot games.
The way they work is simple, you play the slot game as normal, playing any additional bonus games such as free spins round etc, then at the completion of a paid paid spin there is always a 1 in (X) chance that you will hit or be awarded a random jackpot.
It is worth pointing out that if you are awarded the free spins bonus round then this is not classed as a paid spin so only after the completion of the final element of the spin/game do you have a chance of winning the random jackpot.
In regards to Real Time Gaming random jackpots in particular the chance of you winning a random jackpot is based on a $1 bet (in total) and as such this chance is increased or decreased proportionately based on your total spin amount.
So for example if you are playing a single line spin on a coin value of 1 cent then you therefore have a 100 times less chance of winning the random jackpot than a $1 spin.
Conversely a $100 maximum bet spin would have a 100 times better chance of winning the random jackpot than a $1 spin, and so on.
A proportion of your stake is put towards the random jackpot and this is, in most cases no more than 1.5% of the return to player.
The operators of Real Time Gaming powered casinos can opt to have either a $1000 or $5000 reset value of their random jackpot slots, this is the amount the jackpot resets too once it has been won.
Operators cannot choose either when or to whom the random jackpots will be paid/won by, hence they are called random jackpots! Recently a newer breed of these slots have been released and they offer two, live random jackpots.
Some players have decided the best way to have a chance of winning this type of slot game is to set it at 1 cent per spin and then by using autoplay set the game to play itself for thousands of spins. The idea behind this is that by playing just 1 cent a spin they won't be spending a fortune and with the increased number of spins they make they stand a better chance of winning!
But at the end of the day due to the completely random nature of the jackpot being awarded every play stands a good a chance as another of winning one of them, but a high roller by virtue of the value of their stakes would stand an increased chance.
That aid there have been quite a growing number of players who have managed to win a random jackpot whilst playing at just one cent per spin, so if you are looking for a huge payout for minute stakes then you should seriously consider giving this type of slot game a try.
The Real Time powered online casinos dotted around our website will let you play the random jackpot slots for free, to allow you to get a feel for how they work, however as you would expect during free play mode you cannot keep any random jackpots won!
