How Does Jackpot King Work?

Call me naive, but I thought all slots with the Jackpot King engine attached were playing for the same pot. I must be wrong because I just noticed while playing Goonies that at Laddies all three pots were different to at William Hill. The big one was almost £500k different.

Does anyone know how this works - is it different for each casino or something?

The pot amount is always different on the game tiles before you open the game but I figured this was the total amount of all 3 pots plus whatever else was left which they use to pay out when you win but don't get one of the pots (where you can win 40x etc)

I think its per site/sites.

Betsson,betsafe,nordicbet would have the same, atleast thats how it works with the red tiger jackpots as far as i know.
So L&L would have the same progressives on all their sites.
Some jackpots are the same for all casinos, like Mega moolah, but i dont think thats the case for jackpot king and red tiger jackpots.

Im not 100% sure, but someone will probably correct me if im wrong.

Its per license holder / company yes. So our progressives have a different amount (also because we just started with BP) as e.g. PokerStars, William Hill or LeoVegas.

The way it works is you’re not winning any of the pots unless it’s a 10p spin on your second ever £5 online casino deposit and your name is Margaret
Sorry you missed a few points out living in a bedsit in Malmo whilst sitting on the toilet in the dark due to not having enough money for the electric bill..

How does it work?

Easy.

You deposit and then lose quickly on the slots, with their lower game RTP after the progressives are taken into consideration.
Meanwhile, the jackpots rise inexorably.

Then Sven from Sundsvall wakes up to find a dear John note from his beloved girlfriend who has left him for a Somali taxi driver. He then switches the kettle on and all the electrics blow. Just then, with his last 10% of battery on his mobile, work rings Sven to tell him he's been made redundant and there's no cash for his severance pay. He then walks toward the job centre and gets his legs broken when a car veers onto the pavement and drives off. Just as he's ringing for an ambulance, he gets a text from Shyster's Slots and clicks the link while waiting freezing on the floor, as all the slackjaws stand round filming him on their mobiles. To distract himself, he deposits his last 100 crowns and 90 seconds later screams out, not in pain, but because he's hit the top of the ladder and won 3.7m Euros. He virtually floats into the ambulance and later they reset his legs with no morphine as he's still that high from the win.
This news is leaked by one of the nurses, and 8 hours later Casino Rewards have his photo on Faecebook and the story too, the lucky game somehow changed from Blueprint to a Microgaming Progressive slot.

You guys are hilarious :laugh: Thanks all. Although I tend to do alright on Goonies with Jackpot King, even if the RTP is lower.

Now ive said that i'll never win anything ever again of course...

Not all of them are on that, Deal or No deal megaways are on 95 something + jackpot, the older blueprints like mars attacks is also on high (at least on the gamesys sites)

Why are JK machines on such a terrible RTP, 92% most of them compared to 96 or 97% for normal versions.
Because the casinos like lower RTP games, and because of the jackpot contribution. If you check the game files it will tell you how much is given to the jackpot.

We dont talk about that.

There is alot of them tho.
Even more so here in the north where the old viking names still are going strong.
One of my brothers have Karl-Erik as his middle name. =)

I suppose the Anglicised version of Johan would be John, and Anders Andrew? We get plenty of Karls, Erics, Michaels, Andrews, Johns in the UK and the odd Jan. I know one Lars. Haven't encountered an English Olaf, Nils or Per though. Nilsson and Nielsen aren't unusual surnames in the UK, with the Scandinavian double 's'. In fact, 2 of England's most notorious serial killers had those surnames, the Black Panther and of course Dennis Nilsson who killed at least 8 men in London in the 1980's and cooked their body parts before being caught when the drains outside his flat blocked due to the bits he hid in them.

Was he a cannibal or did he cook them for other reasons?
Ive seen a bunch of documentaries about serial killers, and damn, there are some messed up people out there.
And for every person they catch there are probably 10 more out there doing the same thing.
