Progressive Jackpot

In the context of slot machine gambling, a progressive jackpot slot is a machine that features an accumulative pot. A small percentage of every bet goes towards this progressive jackpot. The winner receives all of the money accumulated by the jackpot they win at the time of the spin. When a jackpot is won, its amount does not start accumulating from zero. Instead, it reverts back to a pre-defined amount (e.g. $1,000,000 USD). To keep things more interesting for the players, Some machines feature several progressive jackpots at once (e.g. a Mega, Major, Minor and Mini jackpot).
