In addition to normal video slots, jackpot slots are one of the most popular game categories in the online casino. But there are also important differences among the jackpot slots themselves.
We want to explain one of the most important differences to you today, because it makes a big difference whether you play a local or a global jackpot slot.
What is a local jackpot slot?
In the case of a local jackpot slot, the jackpot is filled with bets from all players who play in this slot, but only in the online casino in which you are currently playing the slot.
This means that if you play Tiki Wonders or Gold Rush from NetEnt in an online casino, for example, a small percentage of all bets made by the players in the same online casino will go to the jackpot of the respective game.
If the jackpot is then hit in your casino, it will be reset to the starting value there. However, this does not affect the jackpots in Tiki Wonders or Gold Rush in any other online casino where they are offered.
As a result, the jackpots in the local jackpot slots are often slightly smaller than in a global jackpot, the function of which we will explain to you in the next section. But you can still secure decent winnings in a local jackpot slot. And the best thing is that you can hunt the jackpot in different online casinos because it is only reset in the online casino where it was cracked.
What is a global jackpot?
In the global jackpot, on the other hand, the jackpot is filled by all players who play the slot in all online casinos in which it is offered.
This means that if someone plays at Betsson Mega Moolah, a fraction of their stakes go to the jackpot and players who play the same jackpot slot at Casumo or at video slots also contribute to increasing the jackpot with their bets.
This way, the jackpots from global jackpot slots can quickly rise to breathtaking heights. It is not for nothing that Mega Moolah is often called a millionaire maker.
By filling up the jackpots with bets from all players, these jackpots are called progressive jackpots because they continue to grow the more players make bets.
Both local and global jackpot slots can be progressive.
