Fruit Machine Jackpots
Most people in the UK are familiar with fruit machines; lurking in the corners of pubs they give tipsy people the chance to win a bit of cash with a spin of the reels. However, the fruit machines found in pubs around the country usually don’t pay out much more than £150, if that.
That’s a pittance compared to the kind of jackpots able to be won at online casinos. While traditionally confined to the corner pub, fruit machines are becoming more popular online as many players like the simplicity of the game compared to the business of video slots.
Not only do online fruit machine offer better odds of winning in general, some of them also offer progressive jackpots which blow away the wins offered by machines in the pub. That is because gaming regulations limit the winnings that land-based machine can pay out, which online games have no such restrictions.
Although the rise in popularity of online fruit machines has not yet given way to a plethora of fruit machine jackpots, there are still some to be found at UK online casinos. Some of the more popular of these, Pandamonium, Treasure Island, and Stallionaire offer jackpots of as much as £50,000, which is certainly a lot better than winning a tenner at the local pub.
This game revolves around a Panda bear that also happens to be a rock star, which is just as good a premise as any. The important part about this games is that it offers a jackpot of as much as £20,000. Furthermore, it has a unique feature which allows players to have multiple chances to win, on the same spin, doubling and even trebling chances to win.
The horse-racing themed Stallionaire fruit machine operates like most others, with the exception that it also carries with it a very impressive £10,000 jackpot.
The top dog of the online fruit machine jackpot games, Treasure Island has become famous for having the largest of all the online fruit machine jackpots. At £50,000, this jackpot is a serious amount of cash. And like all good fruit machines, there are extra ways to help the player win it, including nudges, and an extra high/low betting game.
