In the course of playing different online slots, you’ll notice that there are thousands of developers out there. Each strives to make a mark by design, gameplay, or bonus features.
An example of developers maximising on features would be in the jackpot category. Playtech has its Fire Blaze Jackpots, while Microgaming has the WowPot Progressive Jackpots.
It’s a progressive jackpot slot that takes a small percentage from each bet made on participating slots and adds it to the jackpot total. If a player eventually triggers the jackpot, the reward is the accumulated prize pool. The longer the jackpot goes untriggered, the bigger the pot grows.
WowPot slots typically offer 4 types of jackpots: Mini, Minor, Major, and the WowPot jackpot.
WowPot Slots work similarly to regular slots. Punters log in to their online casino account to play any participating WowPot slot game.
A thorough paytable read will give you an idea of the payouts and features available. Set your preferred bet, then hit Spin.
Some of the WowPot slots might require you to bet maximum stakes for the chance to potentially trigger a progressive jackpot. However, it’s not uncommon to be able to play the smallest bet and still have a chance of activating the jackpot prize.
You can stand a chance of winning the jackpot by triggering a jackpot wheel bonus. If you do, you can win 1 of the 4 jackpot prizes available.

The last WowPot jackpot hit in August 2022 and paid out £5,757,783.
Microgaming has also launched a few WowPot Megaways slots. The Megaways mechanic works by randomising the number of ways to win on each spin. For example, Megaways slots can feature anywhere from 243 to 117,649 ways to win, although some offer up to a million ways to win.
It works by having each reel able to land a different number of symbols on every spin, and the reels can have a different number of symbols than the other reels in the same spin.
