The following are the best of the best of these slots; the ones that just happen to stand out from the rest.
1. Mega Moolah
Microgaming’s progressive slot, Mega Moolah, presently stands tallest among the bunch. This is largely due to currently holding the record for the biggest-ever jackpot won online – a mind-boggling €18.9 million – which one lucky gamer won in October of 2010. The slot is known for its 25-paylines and will take you through the African wilderness on a safari adventure. Mega Moolah can be triggered on any random spin and will take you to the jackpot wheel, where you can win one of four progressives: Mini, Minor, Major, or the Mega.
2. Mega Moolah Isis
Mega Moolah Isis is essentially its predecessor in a different guise. Also, brought to you by Microgaming, both games share the same jackpot pool. They also offer virtually identical gameplay options with 25 paylines across 5 reels coupled with a free spins bonus which comes with a win multiplier. The biggest difference is aesthetic. Mega Moolah Isis takes on the old Egyptian theme, with symbols such as pyramids, golden butterflies, Nile crocodiles and, of course, Isis herself.
3. Mega Fortune
Mega Fortune is another huge hit among gamers who love their progressive jackpot slots and is brought to you by NetEnt. The game once held the record for the biggest-ever online jackpot for some time after its massive payout of €17.8 million in 2013.

The game’s symbols include yachts, fancy cars, watches expensive wine bottles, etc. You can trigger the jackpot bonus by landing three bonus wheel symbols on one of the paylines.
4. Jackpot Giant
Jackpot Giant has never reached the heights of popularity some of the other games on this list have. That’s due in part to its creators, Playtech, not making the games in their stable as widely available on online casinos as other operators do. Don’t overlook this game, though. It is known to have paid out one of the biggest jackpots in online slot history – a whopping $12.3 million jackpot October 2018. On the Jackpot Giant, you will see 50 paylines and an assortment of rocks and gems for symbols. To win a jackpot, players must line up five golden wild symbols on the first payline while playing the maximum bet.
5. Arabian Nights

From the slot’s name, you could guess the slot features symbols represent the Arabian culture. In order to land a jackpot, players must bet the maximum on all 10 lines and hit five wild symbols on a payline.
6. Joker Millions
The Joker Millions slot is relatively new to the universe of progressive slots. It was created by Yggdrasil, an industry up-and-comer which has been creating a lot of buzz recently.

7. Hall of Gods
Hall of Gods features the always popular Norse theme with Viking gods and heroes on the reels. Although this is an older game created by NetEnt, with graphics that won’t blow you away, Hall of Gods, a 20-payline slot, more than compensates for its lack of aesthetic charm with its amazing jackpot. Its biggest payout of €7.8 million occurred on April 2015. The jackpot can be won in the pick-and-click bonus feature.
8. Beach Life
To be honest, Beach Life isn’t as popular as it should be.

If you land five wild sun symbols on the 20th payline you will hit the game’s progressive jackpot. The biggest amount paid out to date by Beach Life is €6.2 million.
9. Gold Rally
Gold Rally is an old-fashioned slot. However, it also has the potential to change your life. A Playtech creation, with its 3×3 grid and just 8 paylines, the slot’s relative simplicity will remind you of days gone by. However, if you are lucky enough to fill an entire grid with scatters (golden scales), you’ll be in for a special treat in the form of a progressive jackpot. The biggest payout this slot is known for is €4.7 million.
10. Millionaire Genie
