Even though the Microgaming Jackpot Pool is not the largest one in terms of size or number of online casino games, but it is certainly the most popular one. According to the most recent reports the Microgaming jackpot pool consists of 26 online casino games. Out of these 19 are online pokie games, 2 are video poker games and 5 are table casino games.
Online pokie games are the most popular in this list. The Mega Moolah network is the flagship in this pool. It was released in the year 2006. Before this network, the leading name was that of Major Millions.
The 3-reel and the 5-reel pairs are the most fascinating features of the online pokie games of the MicroGaming jackpot pool. A traditional 3-reel format and video pokie 5-reel format are connected under the same title with one progressive jackpot. Players can hit this jackpot from any of these games and once it is hit, the jackpot gets reset.
The different pairs include Fruit Fiesta, Cash Splash, Wow Pot and LotsaLoot. The bets get equated to qualify for the progressive jackpot. For example, in the Wow Pot 3 reel you would have to bet 3 coins that amount to a total of 1.50 credits. And, in Wow Pot 5 reel you would have to bet 15 coins that have a total of 1.50 credits.
In the case of the 5-reel variation, the jackpot gets hit when 5 Wow Pot symbols come on the 15th payline. And, in the case of the 3-reel variation, you hit the jackpot when 3 Wow Pot symbols come on a single payline. And, the remaining pairs also work in the same manner.
