How to win Everybody’s Jackpot Progressive Jackpot?
This pokies machine is played with a mystery progressive jackpot, which is offered randomly and is triggered during main play. The idea behind the progressive jackpot is that it belongs to everybody. The player, who triggers the jackpot, gets to keep 70% of the total progressive jackpot.
15% of the remaining jackpot will be distributed evenly amongst other gamers who are playing the pokies at that moment, and have the “qualifier” bet placed. The qualifier bet is listed on the main game screen, next to the reels. So as long as you have the qualifier bet staked, as long as somebody else wins, you will win something too.
The final 15% of the jackpot is offered again to all qualifying players, though proportionally to their bets during the last 24 hours. For example, in a 24 hour period, a player who has wagered $100 in total will receive a larger share of the final 15% than a player who has wagered just $60. As long as they have wagered above the qualifier amount in the last 24 hours, a player can still win a jackpot, even if they have signed out of the game.
It is not possible to win the progressive jackpot during the free spins bonus round.
The progressive jackpot is triggered randomly therefore there has to be a second jackpot that can be won in standard play. This jackpot is a total of 250 coins, which can be won when a player manages to line up 3 of the male host symbols. 3 of the female host symbols will still result in a payout of 150 coins though.
