Slot machines are the most popular form of Internet casino entertainment. An online progressive slot machine accumulates deposits from its players from a number of online casinos to create jackpots that grow by the minute. Microgaming, the major software provider for the online gambling industry, has eight progressive slot games. Each of these slots accumulates deposits from nearly 100 online casinos. This article discusses Microgaming’s eight progressive slot machines, including Major Millions, Cash Splash, Fruit Fiesta, King Cashalot, LotsaLoot, Treasure Nile, Tunzamunni, and Mega Moolah.
Major Millions, with a jackpot starting at $250,000, is by far the largest progressive slot on the Internet. Major Millions comes in both a 3-reel and a newer 5-reel version. Major Millions is the only progressive jackpot that has ever paid out jackpots exceeding $1,000,000. Three Major Millions symbols on the third payline pays out the progressive jackpot if you have played the maximum bet of $3.00.
Treasure Nile is a 5-reel, 9-payline, 9-coin progressive slot machine. You win the Treasure Nile jackpot by playing the maximum bet of $4.50 and by hitting 5 Pharaoh symbols on the 9th payline.
Cash Splash, the first online progressive jackpot, is a 3-reel, single payline, 3-coin progressive slot. You win the Cash Splash jackpot by playing the maximum bet of $3.00 and by hitting 3 Cash Splash symbols on the payline.
Fruit Fiesta is a 3-reel, 3-payline, 3-coin progressive slot machine. You win the Fruit Fiesta jackpot by playing the maximum bet of 75¢ and by hitting 3 Fruit Fiesta symbols on the third payline. PG Slot

Tunzamunni is a 3-reel, single-payline, 5-coin progressive slot. With the maximum bet of just 25¢, Tunzamunni is more practical for many players. You win the Tunzamunni jackpot by playing the maximum bet of 25¢ and by hitting a White, Red, and Blue Seven (in that exact order) on the payline.
Mega Moolah is Microgaming’s newest progressive slot. Mega Moolah is a 5-reel, 25 payline slot machine with an African wildlife theme. The Mega jackpot starts at $1,000,000, and you can spin the “Jackpot Wheel” for a chance to win one of four progressive jackpots.
