I’m over and checking out the slot games. Now, I regularly visit online casino sites because they have a great selection of games. But this morning when I hit the site, the thing that struck me were the scrolling counters for random jackpots. When something on a particular casino strikes my attention, I think “hey, I should go write about this.” And for slots players, random jackpots are a feature you want to know about.
Like any jackpot, a random jackpot is designed to draw you into playing a game. But the majority of slot jackpots and progressive jackpots are designed to payout only if you land a specific combination of symbols on the reels. But random jackpots are different because, well, they’re random. A random jackpot can pay out at anytime on a slot game. You don’t need to line up the right symbols to win; you just need to be playing when the jackpot decides to pay out. Of course, to win the random jackpot, you need to be playing for real money.
Now, if you stop and think about that, you can see the casino’s purpose behind offering a random jackpot. These jackpots encourage people to play slot games for a longer period of time than they might normally play because the more you play, the better your chances of being on the game when the jackpot pays out. So, I offer the same caution for this feature that I do for any other – just watch your bankroll and don’t be tempted to spend more than you can afford to lose. And remember, even a player who only drops in for a short period of play still has a chance to win the jackpot.
