Progressive Games

Jackpot Capital progressive jackpot games are the go to games for many gamers.  For others, they are occasional entertainments as every spin has the possibility of ending up with your name “in lights”.  If you win, your handle will get top billing at Jackpot Capital for quite some time: until other players win a big jackpot and take over the “headlines”!  

Progressive Slots Take You Back to Empires and Dinosaurs

Progressives are a breed apart from all other online casino games.  That is part of their great attraction, of course.  In a regular slots game, you might win a few thousand dollars in the free spins bonus round.   A win of a few thousand dollars is nothing to sneeze at.  Still, progressive slots give wins in the tens of thousands and can go much higher!

In video poker, in most sessions, you win a little or lose a little with wins and losses counted in the tens of dollars, not the tens of thousands of dollars.  In roulette, if you make even money bets, you’ll also have a great deal of fun at little to no cost.  The same is true in blackjack if you play with the best strategy.

Progressive wins are the top of the line, the Mercedes of online casino games, the three star Michelin restaurants of games, the luxury cruise of online casino gaming!

Here is a short rundown of the progressive games on offer at Jackpot Capital.  After we tell you about the games, we’ll talk about how mobile gaming has made progressive gaming so popular.

Caribbean Stud Poker

This is a great online casino game that pits player against the house.  The progressive jackpot is available to players who make a modest side bet.  The side bet gets paid out based on the value of the player’s hand and a player who is dealt a Royal Flush wins the entire jackpot. 

In the regular game, the player has to first make an ante bet.  Then the dealer deals the cards.  In the online version, all of the player’s cards are face up with only one dealer card face up.

Then the player has to decide whether to continue or to fold.  If you continue, you add another bet that is twice the size of your ante bet.  At this point, you get to see both hands.  The dealer has to qualify with a hand that has at least an ace and King.  If the dealer doesn’t qualify, and the player’s hand is better than the dealer’s hand, the player wins his or her ante bet but not the continuation bet.

If the player has the better hand and the dealer qualifies, the player wins both bets.

The progressive jackpot side bet is independent of the regular game play.  If you make the side bet and you are dealt at least a flush, you’ll win some or all of the progressive jackpot.

Caribbean Hold’em

This game follows the rules for Caribbean Stud except that there are community cards.  The progressive bet is still a side bet in this variation of Texas Hold’em.  Caribbean Hold’em is a favorite of many online gamers who love Hold’em but prefer a game with no bluffing!

Let ‘em Ride

This is another variation on Caribbean Stud.  In this game, you get five cards but you only see three of them.  You can raise by adding to the ante or continue without adding to the ante. 

The progressive jackpot is in the side bet as with the Caribbean games.  You win some money with a flush or full house, a lot more for four of a kind or a straight flush, and the entire progressive jackpot for a Royal Flush.

Cleopatra’s Gold

This is a standard slot game that takes you back to ancient Egypt.  The symbols are the Queen Cleopatra, the pyramids of Giza, traditional Egyptian jewels, hieroglyphics, and the Eye of Horus.

While the regular game features a multiplier and the bonus round makes big wins possible, most players go for Cleopatra’s gold though the progressive jackpot.

In order to win the progressive jackpot, you have to bet the maximum.  We will get back to this point when we talk about mobile gaming and progressive jackpots.


As you can see, the name of this progressive slot combines “mega“as in mega-win with “saur” as in dinosaur.  So, you travel back to the time that the dinosaurs ruled the Earth and you get to play for a giant progressive jackpot, too!

The game features several types of dinosaurs, each scarier than the others!   You’ll be happy to be playing from the comfort of your home, office, or wherever you are as you spin a few reels on your mobile device.

The volcanoes give you varying numbers of free spins in the wildest bonus round around! 

Spirit of the Inca

One of the great aspects of modern video slots is that they let you vicariously experience an unlimited number of moments. The Spirit of the Inca allows you to immerse yourself in the warrior culture of one of the greatest empires of the pre-European Western Hemisphere.

The Incas were great warriors and so can you be in this great slot!  Furthermore, the Incas had massive amounts of gold and other treasures and you can win some of their treasure by making the maximum bet and hitting the right combination of symbols to give you the big jackpot.

Great empires and great jackpots come along once in a while.  In this game, you can go back in time and feel yourself one of the warriors and at the same time hope for that one lucky spin that will send you on a five star vacation to the land the Incas ruled or anywhere else you would like to go for that matter!

Progressive Games and Mobile Gaming

Some players play progressives only when they are on the go and have just a few moments to go for the big jackpot.  The reasons for this are:

  1. Mobile gaming is so convenient that millions of gamers around the world play a few hands or spins when they have a moment during their otherwise busy days and 
  2. In order to qualify for the progressive jackpot, you have to make the maximum bet so in order to manage their bankroll well, many gamers play progressive games only on their mobile devices and only when they have a few moments to play.

Mobile gaming has become the favorite platform for online casino gaming in most countries.  The graphics on mobile are great and the convenience is unparalleled.  Mobile gives many players those few chances to win really, really big in their spare time!

Progressives are Great Games

Every game we carry that has a progressive jackpot is a great game in its own right!  In the Caribbean games and Let ‘em Ride, you can play without making the side bet for the progressive jackpot.

In the progressive slots, you can have a great time playing for less than the maximum and going for the overall fun these slots offer rather than going for the progressive jackpot.
