The 10 Highest Paying Slot Games Online
May 15, 2018
Progressive jackpots are the main reason many a casino lover plays online slots. In a matter of minutes, with just a few pence, you can turn in yourself into a millionaire by hitting the right combination at the right time.
A progressive jackpot is defined as a “jackpot which increases each time the game is played but the jackpot is not won. When the progressive jackpot is won, the jackpot for the next play is reset to a predetermined value, and resumes increasing under the same rule.”
Some of the progressive jackpots featured below are only offered to players who wager a certain amount of money, but also some don’t. Let us run you through that, plus much more, as we count down from 10, the highest paying slot games online…
10. Millionaire Genie – £3,742,837
An American playing on Millionaire Genie cashed out nearly £4m back in January 2015 when playing on 888 Casino, which was the biggest the jackpot ever on their site.
Millionaire Genie is a traditional slot game which has a strange bonus round as it is triggered completely at random while playing at any price.
The game is ran by software provider Random Logic, and it is the biggest jackpot that they have ever generated.

6. Millionaire’s Club – £5,247,087
Millionaire’s Club biggest win hasn’t been breached in over a decade when it was won all the way back in 2007 by a man called Omar Baesso.

Since then there have been many variations of the game and today, on Millionaire’s Club III, the jackpot only stands at a steady £600,000.
Millionaire’s Club is the biggest jackpot that is ran by the software provider Cryptologic.
5. The Big One Colossal Cash – £5,412,577
The Big One’s big one was won by a Canadian player back in 2013 when playing on Party Casino. It remains the biggest jackpot ever won on the casino.
“Two years ago I left my job after 23 years and decided to try my hand at poker. I was trying to win a seat to the WPT on PartyPoker, I had $21 left over after registering for the tournament and thought I would try my luck on their sister site PartyCasino. I was thinking maybe I could double up and register for another poker tournament. After a couple of spins, I hit the big one!” said the 46-year-old anonymous winner.
“The pop up on the screen was saying I won over 7 MILLION! I thought to myself, wow, it took me 2 years to realise that I’m a mediocre poker player and only 2 or 3 spins to realise that I’m really, really good at slots! Thank you PartyCasino.”
The Big One Colossal Cash jackpot is made up of two slots: Snow Business and Melon Madness. Both games are run by the software provider Party Gaming and are exclusive to Party Casino.
4. Hall of Gods – £6,952,221
