2020 has not been the best of years for many thanks to the pandemic and during the lockdown the need for escapism was higher than ever. Escapism comes in many different forms and lots of people chose to escape reality by playing slots such as Fishin Frenzy. Jackpot slots proved very popular as always during the lockdown and they continue to do so, with every new release that hits the market.
The Appeal Of Jackpot Slots
Jackpot slots appeal to many punters because they come in all shapes and sizes. They offer an alternative to regular slots and of course they can offer life changing wins too, depending on the type of jackpot that is up for grabs. The smaller jackpots tend to be easier to win and some slots have three to four different jackpots within them. They are usually called mini, minor, major or grand jackpots. These jackpots tend to be small and won frequently.
Progressive jackpots and jackpots that are connected across an entire casino platform tend to be much bigger and the sums that can be won can range from a few hundred thousand to over a million pounds. In Las Vegas land-based slot machines are linked across a casino chain and some of the biggest ever casino wins recorded in history have come from them.
Obviously these are hard to win but have been won in the past and will continue to be won in the future. So far since online video slots were introduced back in 1996, the biggest recorded jackpot win stands at £13.2 million and a UK citizen won this on Mega Moolah in October 2015.
How To Win Jackpots
You can win a jackpot as part of a bonus round that is triggered in a base game, or you can randomly trigger a feature that gives you a shot at the jackpot prize. Some jackpots fall randomly whilst you play a slot. You can even pick symbols that are connected to jackpots and whatever three you pick will correspond with a certain jackpot value.
