Online Games with Largest Jackpots
Even though the largest jackpots in the world are still being offered by Powerball and other lotteries, slot machine games with high jackpot amounts have taken a lead in the online realm. Those of you, who follow the news on casino online games, know what we are talking about. Not a month goes by without a headline about a large jackpot hit at one of the thousands online casino sites out there.
There are over 200 online jackpots to be found at gambling operator brands, courtesy of largest slots suppliers. Those include IGT, Microgaming, Playtech and NetEnt – the top leading supplier companies of casino games online.
Each of these four gambling giants has hundreds of slots in its portfolio, available in desktop and mobile versions. They do a huge effort for promoting the games and educating customers who needs an introduction to gambling. Furthermore, they offer not only slot machine games, but also several types of other casino games, such as table games, video poker and live casino.
The number of players spinning the reels of the online slot games created by these industry leading brands is huge. A small percentage of every bet you make goes to them as a commission. This means they can afford offering larger jackpots than competitors, as they are the ones who act as a guarantor for the payout of your jackpot winnings.
Casino brands with slots you are visiting for playing for real money online sign distribution contracts with the suppliers. Only a handful of these gambling operator sites can afford and/or find it profitable to actually develop their own casino games. Even if they do, they simply do not have enough liquidity to provide the games with as large jackpot wins as the ones from the suppliers we mentioned.
In this article, we will introduce you to the most popular slot games online with jackpots. We select only those, where you can win over £1m, if you hit a jackpot. There might, though, be more jackpot slots available out there with huge jackpot, created by smaller suppliers than the ones you will find here. Furhermore, new slots are being launched every week. We find it, however, unlikely that our list would become outdated within the next couple of years. If this will be the case, you can be sure that we will update our site.
NetEnt Jackpot Games
The leader when it comes to jackpot games online is currently NetEnt. This Swedish supplier of casino games stands for around a third of all gambling on slots in Europe. During 2016 the slots from Scandinavian giant listed in Stockholm have increased tremendously in popularity in the UK.
The best jackpot games offered by NetEnt are:
- Hall of Gods Nordic themed slot with three jackpots;
- Mega Fortune and its sequel Dreams with a Wheel of Fortune Bonus Round;
- Arabian Nights slot, available at selected online casinos around Europe.
Apart from that NetEnt is also offering Cosmic Fortune – a game with local jackpots and Jackpot6000 slot – a replica of a classic Norwegian one-armed bandit Jackpot2000.
Playtech Jackpot Games
Playtech slot games are still the ones we are most familiar with in the UK. Jackpot Giant is one of our personal favorites. As we write this article, the total amount of jackpots available at casinos with Playtech software is around £10m.
Five more games from Playtech have an average jackpot hit exceeding £1m:
- Beach Life,
- Funky Fruits,
- Sweet Party,
If you are happy with online games with lower winning amounts and more frequently hit jackpots, you should try one of Playtech Marvel Jackpot slots, Frankie Dettori horse racing game, based on the legendary British jockey with over 3000 race wins or Megaball.
Microgaming Jackpot Games
Manx Microgaming is famous for its online jackpot games. Mega Moolah is by far their most popular game with huge winnings. In November 2016 a lucky casino player won over $11m on the Moolah slot machine.
Other great Microgaming Jackpot games that you should give a try if you like chasing jackpots are:
- King Cashalot with an average win of around £500,000;
- Major Millions – the second best jackpot game by Microgaming, if you ask us, with a thrilling £400,000 average casino jackpot hit.
IGT Jackpot Games
IGT is one of the largest suppliers of slot games in the world. If you visit Las Vegas, the chances are quite high that you will be spinning one of their slot machines in the casinos. This American company is not as popular online as it is in landbased casino halls. What we mostly love them for are their jackpot slots and the fact that most of the slot games available offline have been released in online versions.
IGT pooled slot jackpot covers several games:
- Monopoly slot;
- Cleopatra – the most famous slot by IGT;
- Siberian Storm
The name of the jackpot is MegaJackpot. Even though this one is not as popular as jackpot games from Microgaming, NetEnt and Playtech, its size is nothing you can complain about. The record streak of hits at MegaJackpot slot machine was noted in the end of 2015 when around £4m has been won within five weeks.
