Has anybody won one of these?
Or can they tell me how they work?
It just seems to be a counter that I'd like to have but have no control over.
What generally happens with online "progressives", is that each casino puts a % of wagers into a central pot held by the software provider as a condition of their licensing deal. When it's hit (and it is supposedly random), the software provider provides the pot to the casino to pay the punter who won it.
Meantime software providers like Cryptologic are phoning up the bank every 10 minutes to find out how much interest they earned yesterday on $4 million So any software providers reading this, if you need a reliable arbitrator to hold the money for you....
I have read so much about problems with RTG Casinos that I have uninstalled most of them now.
- With all due respect if the above is the case should you be gambling ,i do know what you mean though and it is difficult . Casinos are a tempting place -It is fine to say do not use coupons and when you have little money to spend
I still maintain that if a player wins a decent sized random jackpot and requardless of what ever coupon they use the casino operator should offer a reduced payment out of fair play and good will
Hi Ozzie Keith
I thought i would respond to you here
This is really old hat now ,there are good and bad Casinos on every platform and if you decide to play at a Casino do your homework.There is nothing wrong with a large number of RTGs these days.If you stick to the Casinos on this board you really should have no issues at all. I know as i play across all platforms and will only play Casinos endorsed here.

Well i guess everybody is entitled to their opinion but as with every business why should the Casino pay you if it has met its requirements.
I think that what you need to be aware of is the fact that the Random Jackpots on the Reel Time slots are not network wide and the Casino pays for it .If it were a network progressive jackpot then i would have no hesitation in recommending to the Casino to pay out the full amount.Yes that is because RTG pay for it - well we all do but you know what i mean.
The Casinos in their battle to stay alive in a very competitive field in my opinion have gone totally overboard and shot themselves in the foot with the dishing out of Bonuses/Coupons and now subsequently have to introduce these terms and conditions - this is not unique to RTG by the way.
I was having a conversation with one of my webmasters and he wants me to introduce a Casino where there are no bonuses - you only get a x amount back according to your play as any loyalty program does . What is the chance of that happening and how long do you think it would survive ?
At the end of the day Keith ,it is your choice to take the coupon or not and if you do, you need to conform to the terms and conditions .If you dont like them as i said previously then you need to decline the coupon .
It can make you a lot of money or it can cause a bit of heartache - ultimately the choice is yours.
Take care and good luck with your gaming.
Would be a dream come true for me! Where do I sign up??? Do you realize the kind of players you would be attracting? Top notch players that aren't afraid to invest thier own monies for a little fun. No chasers, bonus hunters, no complaints (hopefully) for if the payouts are quick and painless...you would probably be in a league of your own with many knocking on your door to get in IMO!you only get a x amount back according to your play as any loyalty program does . What is the chance of that happening and how long do you think it would survive ?
Yup, yup...to what he said!In the long run, I think it should be successful as there will be no hassles over wagering requirements
