    Triggering a Jackpot on a Bonus

    Triggered a small(180) jackpot on Willhill, sadly not the million pound! But I had bonus active at time and it paid it as bonus money.

    I thought if you won a jackpot it does not count as bonus money. I asked on live chat but I had finished wagering before they answered and didn't have a clue so gave up

    But anyway know if this is normal?

    Isn't this dependent on the kind of jackpot? Certain games have in slot jackpots rather than casino wide ones. As an example, Wishing you Fortune by
    WMS
    has jackpots but they are in slot ones so are not classified as proper jackpots so to speak.

    Was it a fixed jackpot? Like the Divine Fortune minor jackpot is fixed, and would most likely be paid as bonus money. Either way, if you do manage to win a 5 mill jackpot while on bonus, wagering shouldn't be much of an issue.

    Depends if it was progressive,fixed or an in game JP like(the new Zeus slot). It also depends what casino it was won at afik if you win the big jackpots on a bonus at Hills it is fine(I asked when they had umpteen jackpot king slot promos on).

    It's also ok at the download mg casinos I've been playing Mega moolah etc on those for years with bonus money(providing it was part cash and part bonus).

    Always check with the casino before playing jackpot slots with bonus money and also it's best to only do it if you have put in a few deposits first(so they can't feed you the you've never deposited so you are capped spiel)
    One day for most of us there will be a windfall.....just don't lose the rake !

    providing you meet wagering without any play on table games/exceeding max bet you should be ok. If you ever win any progressives in the thousands though tell them right away as I think they have a waiver for it.

    Edit: Why is the Mega-greek for million smaller than Major?!

    Mega is a unit prefix in metric systems of units denoting a factor of one million (106 or 1000000). It has the unit symbol M. It was confirmed for use in the International System of Units (SI) in 1960. Mega comes from the Greek μέγας megas, meaning "great".[1]
