At DuckyLuck Online Casino, we know that most folks have big dreams – of winning loads of the lovely green stuff that’ll change their lives, or at least pay off the mortgage. (Unless of course you’re a billionaire already, but we’re not talking to you, you’re excused.) For some, buying a regular lottery ticket gives them high hopes, while others try their luck at casinos, like DuckyLuck right here. There are two big differences between buying a lottery ticket and playing at DuckyLuck: 1) Buying a lottery ticket is boring, online gaming is hugely entertaining and fun; and 2) Your chances of winning the lottery are about 1:14,000,00, while your chances of winning really big in a progressive jackpot at DuckyLuck are much, much, much, much greater (yes, over 4 times greater on average).
While it’s still a long shot, if you want a chance to win an eye-watering pile of dough on a spin, then progressive jackpot slots are the way to go. Of course, there are other slots with some rather handy fixed jackpot prize money, definitely not to be sniffed at, but progressive jackpots are in another league and the prize just keeps growing until some lucky player ‘hits the jackpot’ – anywhere between $10,000 and a cool $2 million!
DuckyLuck would like nothing better than to see one of our players – it could be you! – walk away with a mammoth win. To cover all the bases, we offer a huge number of progressive jackpot games so you can take your pick, or try them all. Sign up for a DuckyLuck Online Casino account here, and you’re on your way.
When you create an account, you’ll have access to hundreds of popular and profitable casino games, including progressive jackpot slots.

But first, let’s get down to some useful info …
How do Progressive Jackpot Slots Work?
The top FAQ about progressive jackpots is, “Where does all of that prize money come from?” Well, simple really: Each time a player places a bet on one of our many progressive jackpot games, a percentage of their wager is fed straight to the jackpot prize pool. Depending on how popular a game is, the wager percentages can climb up to the millions. The pooled percentages of player wagers will continue to grow until the jackpot is won and it is reset back to the minimum prize. So, it’s a good idea to browse around and find a few different favorite progressive jackpot slots games. This way, you can always be competing for a gigantic jackpot rather than having to wait patiently for the jackpot to rise over time.
The next burning question is “How do I win the jackpot?” Well, that depends on the particular game you’re playing. They all have different requirements to collect the grand prize, but usually a player must land on 5 (or more) of the most valuable symbols.
Types of Progressive Jackpot Slot Games
There are many kinds of progressive jackpot games available to play on DuckyLuck. In reality, the main differences players will see between them are purely cosmetic – how they look, different symbols used, etc. More importantly, it’s good to know the three main types of jackpot games, which have a direct effect on the size of the jackpots: standalone, local and wide area network.
A standalone progressive slot machine has a jackpot ticker calculating bet percentages fed into that specific machine only, and were once common in brick-and-mortar casinos.
These games are linked together on a local connection so that anywhere from a few dozen to a few hundred machines were all collecting a percentage of player wagers to drive up the jackpot total. These are still common in land casinos and can have jackpots ranging from $100,000 to $1,000,000.
Wide Area Network Progressives
A wide area network progressive links slot machines from multiple casinos in the same state, accumulating jaw-dropping jackpots based on the sheer number of people placing wagers. DuckyLuck Online Casino’s progressive jackpot games use this same principle and that’s how we can offer such huge jackpots. With players from all over the world playing 24/7, the jackpot will steadily get higher and higher.
Winning on Progressive Jackpot Slots
Inexperienced players and non-gamblers often believe that there’s no skill or strategy involved in playing slots you just sit there, feeding the machine. But if you have any hope of winning a progressive jackpot slot game, you should develop a strategy and have a little bit of skill, because luck can only take you so far (although it could take you right to the top too!) So here are a few tips to help you through even when Lady Luck seems to have left the building.
Look for games with higher payouts. Progressive slots have payout percentages anywhere from 80–98% (the ‘house edge’). Make sure you know what the payout is before you spin. Choosing a game with higher payouts will be more financially rewarding when you’re finally on a roll.
Bet the max. Many progressive slots have bonus jackpot games that randomly activate during any given session. The odds of a player triggering one of these random bonus jackpots are increased when they bet the maximum amount. Bonus jackpots are a great way to keep your bankroll (account balance) comfy, but make sure you’re playing a game with one of these randomly activated bonus jackpots before consistently betting the max.
Know your limits. The key to success in any game is knowing when to walk away. Bankroll management is an essential skill for any gambler. Setting betting limits before playing will make sure you’re staying out of the red. It’s possible for you to set daily, weekly and monthly betting limits within your account, and if you need help setting it up, get in touch with DuckyLuck and we’ll be happy to assist you.
How are Progressive Jackpots Paid?
In the event that YOU are the lucky one that claims the progressive jackpot, the first thing you’ll want to know is how do I collect all this money? Generally, the progressive jackpots are either paid as a lump sum, or in regular instalments over the course of a period of time. You can expect one of our representatives to get in touch with you and discuss how you’d like your winnings to be handled.
But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Before visualising that potential massive payment, you’ll need to sign up with DuckyLuck.ag, collect your welcome bonus and start spinning. There are plenty of ways to become a millionaire overnight nowadays, but none of them are as exciting as winning a progressive jackpot!
