Progressive Slot Machines

Quartermania Slots

The first networked progressive slot machines were introduced by a major industry player, being International Gaming Technology (IGT) in 1986. IGT rolled out progressive slot games like Quatermania.

In January of 2005 a staggering $35 million was won on a progressive machine, which put the company, the casinos and the technology in the forefront of news headlines which as a result, attracted a lot of attention. This in turn resulted in much more business.

Progressive machines are a group of many slot machines linked together by a network and therefore, a percentage of the money played on each machine is added to the big jackpot. Anyone hitting the winning symbols on any machines on the network wins the jackpot.

Please remember two things when playing progressive slots like Quartermania and Megabucks:

THE MONEY FOR THE JACKPOT COMES FROM A PERCENTAGE OF THE MONEY PLAYED THROUGH THE MACHINE. This in turn means that the payback of progressive machines will be less than the payback of other non-progressive machines. A consequence of this is that the percentage can be as low as 80%.

MAXIMUM COINS HAVE TO BE PLAYED TO WIN THE JACKPOT. Therefore, if you aren’t going to play maximum coins you should not play these machines. Ensure that you always verify the primary and secondary jackpots on progressive slot machines.
