Progressive Jackpot

Aside from a "regular jackpot", there is also a progressive jackpot.

This type of jackpot is a grand prize in gambling games, with a big payout. A progressive jackpot increases every time players play a game, but the jackpot is not won. When a player wins a progressive jackpot, the jackpot in the next games and plays will be reset to a value that is predetermined by the casino or the online video game operator. These days, there are online video poker games and slots machines with progressive jackpots. In every play, the sum of money in the jackpot increases by a predetermined amount, allowing winners to enjoy a larger payout – if they are the ones who win the jackpot.
