How does the progressive jackpot work?
Instead of having a set jackpot amount for that pokie which is won by hitting a specified winning combination, the progressive jackpot grows in relation to the amount of coins bet into that machine. The jackpot is still won by hitting a specified combination on the reels, but for every bet, a percentage is paid into the progressive pokies jackpot amount. This means that the jackpot can grow to a huge amount which would not be possible on other pokies. The most important thing to note is that progressive pokie machines can be multi-linked in many ways so the jackpot amount is not reliant on just one person playing at a time. As a result, this increases the possible progressive pokie jackpot amount considerably quicker than on other pokie machines.
How is the progressive pokie jackpot multi-linked?
Progressive pokie jackpots can be multi-linked in several ways. Firstly, there can be several machines linked up in the one casino, side by side, with the jackpot amount clearly displayed above them. Every time someone plays on one of the linked-up progressive pokie machines, a percentage of the bet amount goes into the progressive jackpot. The amount will rise visibly on the screen in real time and any player who hits the winning combination will win the amount shown at that time.
Progressive pokies jackpots can also be interlinked across several venues. In this instance, the idea is the same as when pokie machines are interlinked in the casino, but the jackpot is linked up to more machines situated in various other casinos; it could be across the same state or across the world. Once again, each time a bet is placed, a percentage of that bet goes into the progressive pokie jackpot prize pool. These progressive pokies jackpots tend to reach the highest possible payouts because of the number of people betting into the overall prize.

As a result, online progressive jackpots have been known to reach millions, and have made several online pokie players
