The popular Beach Life progressive slots jackpot is nearly at the $7 million mark, well above its previous record high and rapidly growing in recent weeks as more and more players take a shot at one of the largest online jackpots.
Available at casinos using Playtech software (which includes Europa Casino, William Hill, and Swiss Casino), Beach Life slots brings the popular progressive jackpot structure online, with players potentially winning millions with just one spin of the reels.
Progressive jackpots pool a small amount of money from each spin of the reels which is used to feed the overall jackpot; this means that players at multiple online casinos can contribute to the same jackpot prize, allowing it to grow larger and much more rapidly than it otherwise would.
The Beach Life jackpot is at $6.9 million at last check, far above the previous high of $4.3 million which was left in the dust months ago. The average hit size for Beach life historically has been $1.8 million, so its far overdue for a big score and hasn't been hit for over 250 days.
Progressive jackpots can grow very quickly once they hit dizzying heights, with casinos promoting them more heavily and offering special bonuses and other promotional offers, which only intensifies the rate at which the jackpots grow as new players give it a whirl to try to become an instant millionaire.
Beach Life isn't the only big online progressive around, with several others over the $1 million mark, including Major Millions and Mega Moolah (found at All Slots Casino).
Slots fans are also able to cash in on some of the most generous new player signup bonuses and reload bonuses; unlike other games such as blackjack or craps nearly every bonus can be cleared while playing slots. Bonuses can be an excellent way to stretch your gambling dollars farther, with some adding hundreds or even thousands of dollars to your gambling bankroll.
