Jackpots are one of the most exciting aspects of playing slots. A very large sum of money can be won on a comparably small investment.
Now, the likelihood of you hitting a jackpot is pretty slim (let’s be real here). But that doesn’t mean you should be hasty when choosing the best site to play slots jackpot machines at. There are things you can look for that might give you a slightly better chance at hitting that hefty jackpot, not to mention have a good time in the process.
Slot Site Networks
When shopping around for a site to play slots on, especially slots jackpots, the first thing I check for is whether the site is linked to a network or not.
A network is where similar games are tied into each other. This can be on a local level (within the one casino) or on a global level (casinos worldwide).
There are two BIG benefits to slots being on a network:
- Jackpots grow at a faster rate. It’s common to see jackpots in the hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars.
- With more players on these machines, the likelihood of the jackpot being hit increases.
I don’t have a preference as to whether the machine is on a local or global network or not — just that it is on one. A local network will be smaller in terms of overall jackpot size and it’ll grow at a slower rate. But it’s still better than not being on a network at all.
Be Sure to Read the Slots Rules
It’s easy to overlook the rules when you’re excited about sitting down to play your favorite machine. That said, I have a piece of advice for you — don’t.
Now, don’t worry. There aren’t that many rules to look for — only 1.
The one rule to look for is whether the machine pays the jackpot or not if you play less than the maximum. The last thing you want to happen is to play a progressive slots machine and hit the jackpot, only to win a miniscule amount. If you’re going to play the progressive jackpots, be sure to read what is required of you in order to qualify and then do that.
