Just as in brick and mortar casinos, online progressive jackpots are the highest payouts for winning on slot games or video poker where the value of the jackpot increases in small increments for every game played.
Normally multiple machines are “linked” together to form one large progressive jackpot that grows quickly as multiple players are contributing to the jackpot simultaneously.
