A progressive jackpot is a prize pool that gets bigger and bigger until it pays out. Every time you bet, a small amount of your wager goes into the progressive jackpot which accumulates over weeks and months until one lucky player hits it. Jackpots are usually found in slots and poker games. You won’t win a progressive jackpot often, in fact it’s likely you won’t win one ever, but if you do the payouts are huge. Many progressive jackpots exceed $1 million and the largest one ever was over $8 million.
