Here at the most fully stocked Netent fansite available online, we’re always talking about the huge, pooled jackpots from Netent (which regularly total many millions) but we don’t talk about local jackpots so often. But what’s the difference?
How do jackpot slots work?
A jackpot slot is one that has a jackpot total to be won, that’s fed by you, the player. As you spin, a portion of your stake goes into the jackpot, which grows and grows until someone wins.
A local jackpot is one where only players at that casino are feeding that total. So a local jackpot at Royal Panda is only being fed by Royal Panda players. This means the total will be different at all casinos you see the game on.
A pooled jackpot is where all players, from all casinos, playing the same game, feed the one jackpot total. So whichever casino you’re playing Mega Fortune at, you’re feeding the same, one jackpot total.
Pros and Cons of Local vs Pooled Jackpots
Pooled jackpots are great as the totals get so so high. There is a much larger range of players feeding the same jackpot total, so it grows quickly and can reach dizzying heights. The highest ever jackpot slot win was for €17 million on Netent’s Mega Fortune.
However, whilst local jackpots are usually of a smaller amount, the fact that less players are in the same game as you, means that there are less players to compete against. The pool of players is smaller, therefore your chances of winning are instantly higher!
Netent Local Jackpots at Royal Panda
Royal Panda offers a number of local Netent jackpot games such as Cosmic Fortune, Tiki Wonders, Geisha Wonders and Icy Wonders, Mega Joker, Super Lucky Frog and more. When playing those games at Royal Panda, you’re only playing against Royal Panda players on the same games, but the amounts are still very impressive. At the time of writing they’re sitting at;
These games grow so fast and get hit so often that the amounts will surely be different by the time you read this, but the fact they are so volatile is a great reason to get playing local jackpots at Royal Panda!
