Megabucks Mega Vault wide area progressive

One of the most common pieces of advice we give players is to check their progressives. When looking at a bank of machines, you can see which machine has the highest progressive, and choose to play that one. In that way, if you ultimately win one, you can be sure you’re winning the biggest one you can.

But what about the bigger progressives? Sometimes there’s just certain games you want to play, and other times you might want to go hunting for a big jackpot to chase. Our friends at IGT have a fun website devoted to that subject: IGT Jackpots.

The website is a directory of all their wide area progressives, the games to which each progressive is linked, and the casinos that have each game. Their bench of jackpots includes well-known games like Megabucks and Wheel of Fortune, so popular games are incorporated into the list.

You can see progressives sometimes broken down by denomination, as some are only offered on $1 or 25 cent denominations of a game, such as Wheel of Fortune. Others are tied to certain themes, like TV Hits, but can be leveraged across a number of brands.

Their directory shows which progressives are available by you, and which games have the progressive, so you know which machines to look for when you get to the casino. For those players who like to target certain payouts to pursue, this is a great way to know what’s available.

In addition, you have the ability to see what jackpot prizes have been awarded. If you ever wondered how often the big Megabucks prize is awarded in Nevada, their directory will give you the answer! (The Nevada Megabucks was won four times in 2023… but not once in 2022 and only once each in 2020 and 2021.) This can help set the right expectations for how often a prize will be won.

Overall, it’s another helpful tool in the toolkit for those who like a big progressive chase. But now, you can get to know what’s available nearby and decide what and where to play based on that information.
