Does anyone know anybody that has actually won on any online progressive? I've seen them so high, and then the next day they are down to nothing, but I never hear of anyone winning. I have a theory, I think the only ones that win the progressive are the players that are playing with no deposit bonuses or any bonus that has a withdraw limit.

Because I was playing a few years ago with a no deposit and I DID hit a $5k progressive, but of course I couldn't cash it out. And then they just reset it back to the starting amount.

Just curious!

Partly I think you may be right ! Yes, there are casinos which let the players play progressive jackpot games while using bonuses with a cap on max allowed winnings ! (Also there are some casinos which do have a cap on max allowed winnings even if the player plays without a bonus at all !) But also there are many honest casinos which are fair and don't let players who play with bonuses which do have a cap on max allowed winnings play progressive jackpot games.

I suppose that those casinos who do allow players to play progressive jackpot games while having active bonuses with a cap on max allowed winnings are not too ethical and are just hoping to free roll their members looking to poket themselves the winnings from progressive jackpot games, because those are paid by the network provider.

But I do not believe that those relatively unethical casinos can set who wins a network progressive jackpot and who don't ! So if you are playing without a bonus (with a cap on winnings) then I think you have equal chanches to win the progressive jackpot and take home the loot !

The only time I have had a jackpot show up, it is in a situation that precludes my actually winning and taking home the cash. Oddly, I have had a jackpot or two pop up while playing in a tournament and of course there you only pick up the $ amount in your tournament balance, but you can only win the total for the tournament and not the jackpot.

If you refer to RTG tournaments, if I am not mistaken, the jackpots from the tournament are different from the jackpots from real cash bets so no foul play from the casinos on this subject.

For example, winning the jackpot in the tournament will only boost your total winning score from the tournament but won't affect the jackpot from the real money cash mode bets on the same game.

Progressive slots and slot machines have a jackpot that increases incrementally as players play the game. To improve your chances of wining just make sure that you choose the right time to play. With this you'll save money and have more fun. Play when your budget permit it, play when the jackpot is huge or play when the jackpot hasn't been won for ages. One tip for enjoyable progressive slot machine gaming is to set a sensible weekly or monthly budget and stick to it.
