What are pooled Jackpots?
While everybody knows what a jackpot is, NetEnt is offering you two jackpot types which might be confusing for those not familiar with pooled and local jackpots. In this article, I explain what pooled NetEnt Jackpots are while giving a short slot review of each pooled jackpot available at the NetEnt Casinos.
If looking at a random jackpot page at one of the bigger NetEnt Casinos offered on Netentcasinos.com, you’ll most probably find eleven or twelve NetEnt Jackpots. With two types of NetEnt Jackpots available, you’ll notice a huge gap between the local and the pooled jackpots. The type explained in this article, the pooled jackpots, can climb up into the many millions simply because they are linked to an impressive network of NetEnt Casinos created by NetEnt over the years.
What is a pooled jackpot?
Offering a pooled jackpot, a NetEnt slot becomes more appealing as millions can be won within just one spin. The logical explanation for these pooled jackpots to climb so high in such a short period of time is because the NetEnt slot is linked to tens of online casinos. Mega Fortune™, for example, the most popular jackpot slot the industry is rich and responsible for the highest online casino jackpot ever won, is available at almost 100 NetEnt Casinos. Because of this incredible network of NetEnt Casinos, millions of players play the Mega Fortune™ slot with real money leaving a small percentage of every bet behind for the Mega Fortune Jackpot™ to climb up.
How fast is a pooled jackpot growing?
This, of course, totally depends on the jackpot game as Mega Fortune™ and Hall of Gods™ are more popular with players at the NetEnt Casinos than the Arabian Nights™ video slot.
Just to give you an idea of how fast a pooled jackpot at the NetEnt Casinos can grow, I’ll give you an example of the two last Hall of Gods™ Jackpot wins. At the beginning of October 2014, a player at one of the NetEnt Casinos managed to hit the Hall of Gods™ Jackpot scooping an amazing €3,868,570. It took this Mega Jackpot exactly 18 weeks to get to this incredible amount. Almost a half year later, the Hall of Gods™ Jackpot was won again but this time NetEnt paid out a dazzling €7,820,888.
What is a local jackpot?
Every single NetEnt Casino is offering you a wide range of local jackpots as well, linked to just one single NetEnt Casino and, therefore, only you and your fellow NetEnt Casino players can win these attractive NetEnt Jackpots. Even though they might look less attractive as they don’t have a tendency to climb up into the many millions, I can assure you that they are just as attractive as the pooled jackpots and highly recommended. Escape from millions of competitors just by choosing a local jackpot as the only players you have to compete are those playing at your NetEnt Casino. Besides that, local jackpots are won more often as well, another reason why local jackpots such as Mega Joker™, Cosmic Fortune™, Super Lucky Frog™ and the Wonders™ slots are super attractive, especially when you are not blinded by the dollar signs in your eyes.
Mega Fortune™ Jackpot
It was until recently, Mega Fortune™ was holding the Guinness World Record for the largest jackpot ever won in an online casino. It was in 2013 a Netent Casino player won the unbelievable amount of €17.9 million, beating the old record jackpot win that was won in 2011 when a player won the Mega Fortune™ Jackpot of €11.7 million. Unfortunately, this online jackpot record has been beaten with only a few thousands of euros.
Mega Fortune™ is available at the majority of the NetEnt Casinos and even though it’s the Mega Fortune™ Jackpot that is loved the most, this NetEnt video slot is offering a great slot gameplay too including Scatters, Wilds, and Free Spins. However, it is the Bonus Game that will lead you to the Wheel of Fortune, the only feature allowing you to win the Mega Fortune™ Jackpot. But that’s not all that can be won during this bonus game because there are two smaller local jackpots available too. If not lucky enough, you will always leave the bonus game with a fixed amount while the Mega Fortune™ Jackpot will be yours when you manage to get to the heart of the Wheel of Fortune.
Hall of Gods™ Jackpot
Come face-to-face with Norse mythology and have a chance to win one of the three NetEnt Jackpots attached to the Hall of Gods™ slot of which one is a pooled jackpot and the other two local jackpots. While playing this triple jackpot NetEnt slot, you’ll bump into Midgard Serpent doing a terrific job as an Expanding Wild. Odin’s ravens can be found on the Scatter symbol of which three of them activate up to 20 Free Spins. Three bonus symbols trigger the Hall of Gods™ Bonus Game giving you a chance to win one of the three Hall of Gods™ Jackpots. During Thor’s Bonus feature, you will use the hammer to break shields aiming for three matching jackpot symbols to win one of the three Hall of Gods™ Jackpots. Three of the same bonus amounts will award you the exact same amount.
While Mega Fortune™ and Hall of Gods™ are way more popular, the Arabian Nights™ slot is still popular enough for the jackpot to climb into the millions. This pooled jackpot won’t grow as fast as the Mega Fortune™ Jackpot and the Hall of Gods™ Jackpot but five Wild symbols on an active bet line are enough to win the Arabian Nights™ Jackpot.
