The Lowdown On The Five Biggest Sky Vegas Progressive Jackpot Slots You Can Play On Mobile
Research has shown that for online and land-based casinos, slot machines are by far and away the biggest contributors to the coffers. The simple pleasure of hitting a button to spin a reel and stand a chance of winning the jackpot has remained strong ever since Charles Fey invented the first ever slot machine, Liberty Bell, back at the turn of the 20th century.
Nowadays though, slots have become far more complicated and have moved from mechanised machines, to software and that transformation has allowed developers to add a huge number of options and features to the modern slot machine.
One of the most popular and certainly winning additions was the ability to offer progressive jackpots. In these games, instead of the typical player wager being split between player payouts and casino profit, a small percentage of each spin is paid into a single fund. This fund then grows with every spin of the game, increasing greatly in size, before it is eventually won by one lucky player.
The top progressive jackpot games on Sky Vegas therefore are amongst its most popular games and although the jackpot amounts on each games may vary (the jackpot will reset to a default minimum once it has been won), the following five games are usually amongst the biggest progressive games you’ll find on the Sky Vegas site.
All the games listed below are available to play from your mobile device… and most are available at bet365 as well.

1. Mega Moolah slot (usual jackpot range £1m to £3.5m) – mobile only
Price per spin 25p to £6.25
Mega Moolah was developed by Microgaming and is one of the most popular progressive slots played across the globe today.
There are a huge number of sites that carry the game in addition to Sky Vegas and with a guaranteed progressive jackpot of at least £1m, it sure is popular.
What is perhaps less well known is that Mega Moolah is just one of five games that pay into this central jackpot fund.
The others are:
- Five Reel Drive
- The Dark Knight
Only Mega Moolah is available on Sky Vegas however.
The jackpot for Mega Moolah was hit in June 2014, when one lucky winner took home just over £1.88m when he hit the progressive jackpot. That was the first time the jackpot had been won in 2014 and came after a run of four months at the end of 2013 when the jackpot was won once per month from September through to December.
The slot is based on an African safari theme and is particularly appealing as it offers a low-cost starting point, with 25p spins enough to give you a chance of winning the big jackpot.
2. Sky Millions (usual jackpot range £500,000 to over £1m)
Price per spin 10p to £180
The Sky Millions slot shares the same progressive jackpot as Millionaires Club slot, which is available on the website but not available to play via mobile, therefore we are only focusing on Sky Millions for this article.
This slot is Sky Vegas flagship progressive and it offers one of the largest progressive jackpots available on the site, indeed at the time of writing, due to the fact the Mega Moolah jackpot was won in June, this is now the largest jackpot available on the Sky Vegas site.
The theme is the lifestyle of the millionaire, with a suitably jazzy Jamaican reggae soundtrack and the sound effects of a Caribbean beach, spins cost from as little as 10p per spin for one line at the lowest denomination, up to a maximum of £180.
The jackpot on the game has been growing since November 2013, when one player Nick from Bath in the UK won the progressive jackpot of £833,649. Since then the jackpot has swelled to almost double that size.
3. Major Millions (usual jackpot range £500,000+) – mobile only
Price per spin £3
Major Millions is another popular progressive from the Microgaming stable and like Mega Moolah, it is only available on the Sky Vegas platform when accessed via mobile. It cannot be played via a PC when accessing the Sky Vegas website.
Major Millions offers a progressive jackpot usually around the £500,000 mark although it can grow markedly quickly due to the fact that every spin on the 15 payline game costs every player the same amount, £3.
One player recently won over $1m when he hit the progressive jackpot playing the game at the start of 2014. This is a great game for fans of simpler mobile slots as the absence of free spins bonus sections mean that it is very much a case of hitting a winning payline to win your cash.
Land five Major Million logos on a payline and you can win the big progressive prize.
4. Adventures in Wonderland (usual jackpot range £450,000+)
Price per spin 20p to £200
Although Sky Vegas (and many other casinos) list this game as being called Adventures in Wonderland, when the game loads up it is actually entitled Alice’s Wonderland.
Perhaps there was a naming rights issue which caused the name to be changed when put up on the website. Regardless of the name of the slot, the theme is of course, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Lewis Carroll’s famous tale is brought beautifully to life through this bonus-packed slot.
It is a five-reel game offering up to 20 paylines with spins costing from 20p up to £200 per spin. The reels are packed with famous characters from the story and each bonus round is named after a famous character or event from the book.
Two jackpots in excess of £450,000 have been won by two Sky Vegas customers. One player named Linda won £476,231 in August 2012 and before that in September 2011, Debbie Mangan won £460,134 playing the slot from a spin costing just £1.
5. Chests of Plenty (usual jackpot range £200,000 to £400,000)
Price per spin 20p to £200
If a life on the ocean waves has always appealed to you then the Chests of Plenty slot is well worth looking at, especially given that you could land your own booty in the form of a progressive jackpot that is usually around the £200,000 to £400,000 mark when won.
This is a 20-line slot which sees players able to bet from as little as 20p per spin, up to a maximum of £200. The game features two bonus rounds and offers free spins and a Chest Bonus, which is the key to unlocking the progressive jackpot win.
There’s lots of great features on the reels including scatter symbols, wilds and other symbols which can become wild if they land in a specific slot and next to a specific symbol on an adjacent reel.
