Brian Christopher high limit Dragon Link jackpot

Lightning Link launched a series of games that have been heavily popular for Aristocrat over the years. The original Lightning Link and its first sibling, Dragon Link, have a lot in common overall, including how you can win various prizes.

It’s the Grand Jackpot progressive though that many players want to know how to win. The most common variation is the one regular players of the game are familiar with: Land all 15 spaces with orbs/balls in the Hold and Spin feature to win the top progressive.

We’ve learned from Aristocrat in the past that the Hold and Spin is completely driven by the random number generator. Your hitting spin each time determines what, if anything, will land in each space.

If you watch the game carefully, one space out of the 15 is generally not showing anything going around. That space can move around the board over the course of the bonus, but that’s the difficult one to land. 

If you land it, that significantly increases your chances of winning the Grand Jackpot, but that does not guarantee you land it. You still have to land the other 14, and as regular players of the games know, even getting the other 14 isn’t something that happens frequently either.

Random Grand Jackpot

There is a second possibility for winning the Grand Jackpot progressive as well, however, and that’s by getting a random Grand Jackpot. (This can actually happen with the Minor progressive as well.) In that scenario, at the end of a spin, the handpay bell will ring, and then show the jackpot won, whether Major or Grand.

This is more rare, but exists in these two games. This feature was done away with in follow-on games in the series, but is a unicorn of a unicorn in these games!

Brian’s a big fan of the Dragon Link million dollar machines found at casinos like Yaamava. His two biggest wins ever as of this writing were on them. One was on a random Major progressive jackpot:

Here’s another Hold and Spin bonus where this time he lands a particularly massive Minor jackpot:
