Online pokies payout triad of 5-figure progressives at Royal Vegas

Royal Vegas is a top-tier online pokies site for Australians, and if we take a look at the biggest winners of the last few weeks, it’s easy to see why. According to records supplied by the online casino’s operator, Fortune Lounge Group, three players cashed out progressive jackpot wins at Royal Vegas’ online pokies last month alone. The first week of October has been lucrative as well, with another pair of 5-figure payouts already awarded.

All three of the online pokies jackpot wins at Royal Vegas struck within 6 days of each other, all on different versions of Microgaming’s celebrated progressive poker machines. A grand total of nearly €50k was awarded between last month’s three lucky players.

The first big progressive strike occurred on September 7 while Shelley G. was spinning the reels of Lots a Loot. The 5 reel, 25 payline progressive has the added advantage of being linked to its original sister-slot, a 3 reel classic version by the same name. Like all past players of the distinctly colorful game, Shelley sought the pot of gold at the end of the thematic rainbow. She played the preset $0.10 coin size on all paylines (the max $2.50 bet) and spun the reels to the tune of €11,941 (AUD $17,197) that day when the requisite Lots a Loot Wilds appeared all the way across the 25th payline.

Three days later, Joan W. hit the progressive jackpot on another online poker machine, Cash Splash. Similar in make-up to Lots a Loot, Cash Splash is a 5 reel, 15 payline video slot that also features an exponential progressive, supplemented by a 3 reel variation. To unleash the ever-growing jackpot, a player must wager $0.20 on each line (total $3 bet) and land 5 Cash Splash symbols across the full length of the 15th payline. That’s exactly what Joan did on September 10, earning her a massive €17,109 (AUD $24,640) payday.

Another two days went by before the largest progressive jackpot of the month was unleashed at Royal Vegas. Charlie B. was playing one of Microgaming’s most prolific network progressives, the Mega Moolah, via the Summertime edition. The Mega Moolah is unique in the sense that it is linked across a number of variably themed online pokies, including MM 5 Reel Drive, MM Isis, MM Major Millions, MM Summertime, and the original self-titled hit, Mega Moolah.

Also contributing to the uniqueness of the Mega Moolah progressive network is the presence of four jackpot tiers, ordered least to greatest in value – the Mini Jackpot, Minor Jackpot, Major Jackpot and Mega Jackpot. Charlie didn’t become an instant millionaire on September 12, but he did rake in the Major Jackpot when he landed the game’s special bonus feature. The wheel spun round and round, eventually landing on the Major Jackpot slot worth €20,514 (AUD $29,544).

Since the start of October, another two members of Royal Vegas have struck 5-figure gold on the poker machines. On October 2, Trevor C. won €19,106 (AUD $27,516) from the 5 reel, 30 payline game, Fortune Finder. Three days later, the online pokies favored Jackie S. with €15,986 (AUD $23,022) while playing the 5 reel, 20 payline machine, Nutty Squirrel.
