Popular Microgaming Progressive Online Pokies
Added: July 13, 2017
Microgaming is one of the leading software providers to Australian online casinos. It has an array of progressive jackpot pokies in its portfolio. The most well-known is the Mega Moolah network. This progressive jackpot pays several million dollars when hit, but hit only a few times a year. Players who want lower risks and are willing to settle for lower returns can look at some of the progressive jackpots discussed below. All of them are available at Microgaming online casinos like Casino Mate, Royal Vegas and Spin Palace.
The progressive jackpot Treasure Nile hits about twice a month and pays on an average AU$90,000. For many players this seems to be a perfect balance between frequency and payout. The popular ancient Egypt theme adds to the traffic. Treasure Nile is a 5x3 online pokie with 9 paylines. Because of the progressive jackpot you wager with a fixed line bet of AU$0.50. In order to be eligible for the progressive jackpot you have to enable all 9 paylines. Your wager per spin is only AU$4.50. The progressive jackpot is hit when you land five King Tut symbols on the ninth payline. Treasure Nile has the pyramid as the wild symbol. But it cannot be used to complete the progressive jackpot combination. Five King Tut symbols otherwise pay 6000 coins. The other symbols in this online pokie are Sphinx, Anubis, ankh, asp, scroll, pillar and boat. The scarab is the scatter symbol and awards payouts multiplied by the total bet.
If you are looking for a Microgaming progressive jackpot online pokie that hits even more frequently, then Cash Splash should be your choice. You get a hit about three times a week with an average payout of about AU$25,000. The Cash Splash progressive jackpot network is connected to two online pokies. One of them is the classic 3-reel pokie. In order to be eligible for the jackpot you must bet the maximum 3 coins. The coin size is fixed at $1 so you wager $3 a spin. The progressive jackpot is hit by landing three game logo symbols on the single payline. The other version is a 15 paylines pokie in the 5x3 format. You have to activate all 15 paylines and land five Cash Splash symbols on the 15th payline to win the jackpot. The coin size is fixed at AU$0.20, and this works out to the same amount of $3 spin. The chance of winning the progressive jackpot is the same regardless of which Cash Splash pokie you play.
