    I've heard the term before but never really investigated it. What is it and why should I care?

    Progressive slots have a jackpots that increase as they are played, until hit. For example, on a Blazing 7's 3 reel $1 pregressive (my personal fave) the jackpots start at $1000. Each $3 pull results in an increase of 1 cent or so. So, after 100 slot pulls, the jackpot would sit at $1001.00. That jackpot will keep increasing until a spin results in the top combination of 3 Blazing 7's with max credits played. It will then again reset to $1000.00

    Some progressives, like Megabucks and Wheel of Fortune are linked, where a bank of machines at Bellagio/Luxor/Harrahs etc. are linked to machines all over Vegas. These jackpots are much, much larger, as contributions are coming from hundreds or even thousands of machines. You will even find some progressives that are only linked to a certain bank of machines at one casino. You will know you've found a progressive machine when you see a LED readout at the top of the machine with an abstract figure, like $375,489.72 (due to the contributions from play without a jackpot being hit) That machine is waiting for your 3 credits of play..... Play it man.... Play it.

    We really loved the Indianna Jones progressive slots at the M Casino - there were 3 levels of progressives - first level is won frequently (ie about every 10 - 20 minutes) and higher level progressive happen less frequently. A video plays on everyone's machine at the same time and only one player will get the progressive. Everyone gets excited when a progressive starts and the game is very social.

    There is a new Superman progressive game at the Station casinos. We are definitely going to check that out when we get to Vegas (my husband says SHHHHHH - they'll all want to play and we won't get near a machine LOL)
