If you were hoping to learn about yet another winner of a seven or eight-figure progressive jackpot payout, you are out of luck. Actually, we could say that you are in luck, as that means there is more for you to win should you manage to get fortunate enough the next time you play some of the biggest jackpot slots.

There were jackpot wins, of course, but these were the smaller jackpots such as those below £/ €100,000. They pay out a lot more frequently. For example, the Mega Moolah ‘Mega’ jackpot just paid out £28,556 a little over an hour ago. That same jackpot was paid out twice yesterday as well, for £14,515 and £22,836, respectively.

However, while they are welcome wins, it is the truly life-changing sums of money that most of you would rather land. Unfortunately, since Relax Gaming’s Dream Drop paid €1.5 million to its third big winner last week, no other significant jackpot has been claimed. What that does mean is that the main jackpots from providers such as Microgaming, NetEnt, and Playtech have got bigger.

You can see the current status of 10 of the biggest jackpots we are tracking in our table at the end of this article. To sum up, however, Playtech’s Jackpot Giant progressive jackpot remains the biggest at €6,694,628. Catching up fast is the legendary Mega Moolah progressive network from Microgaming at £5,656,553. The latter has grown 600k in the last week alone.

There were some land-based wins to talk about, at least. International Gaming Technology (IGT) revealed during the week that its Wheel of Fortune slots had paid out two CA$1 million+ jackpots in Ontario during the month of August.

What Other Jackpots are Worth Playing?

As you will see in the table below, we feel there are four progressive jackpots worth playing now. Those are the Jackpot Giant (€6,694,628), Microgaming’s King Cashalot (£1,780,684), Gladiator (€1,513,434) from Playtech, and IGT’s MegaJackpots (£1,070,046). Following those are a few that we have put into the ‘Maybe’ category. As for the rest, while our table suggests avoiding them, they could still pay out at any time. My personal tip is King Cashalot, as this is well past its sell-by date and has a current jackpot that is three times the size of its average payout.
