When To Play The Jackpot

While there’s a great deal of good fortune that goes into winning a jackpot, there are several things that you can do to increase your chances of getting that magical winning spin. There’s no real right or wrong time to play, if you have unlimited time and funds, but if you’re looking for a bit more direction to your jackpot hunting, you’ve come to the right place.

Play When The Jackpot Is Hot

You’ve all probably heard of “striking while the iron is hot” and we’d definitely consider this method when playing a progressive jackpot slot. The amount of money in a jackpot can vary drastically, building both over time and in volume. There’s of course the contradiction that the bigger the jackpot gets, the more players will play it, but in turn this only makes the jackpot grow even faster until it’s eventually won.

How Do I Know Which Jackpots Are Due To Hit?

While there’s no true way to know when a jackpot is due to ‘hit’ thanks to the Random Number Generator technology, you can keep track of them with the help of our monthly Reel News blog, which will show you the stats of the biggest online jackpots available to play with CasinoEuro. You can check which are ‘hot’: in other words, which have gone over their average jackpot win or hit frequency but have not yet paid out.

Can I Play A ‘Cold’ Jackpot?

There’s no disadvantage to playing a ‘cold’ jackpot slot. A ‘cold’ jackpot is one that has recently paid out, but again thanks to the RNG, there’s nothing to prevent the jackpot falling again immediately after a winning spin. The odds of each spin are exactly the same. The pot might be smaller, but with less players spinning you could have a greater chance of hitting it yourself.

While one jackpot may have just been paid out, there are always plenty of others still growing. A glance at CasinoEuro’s jackpot lobby and you’ll see there are jackpot slots at every stage: some that have just paid out and others could be over a million euros!
