- Maxi won by 5 Jackpot icons in a single card
- Midi won by 4 Jackpot icons in a single card
- Mini won by 3 Jackpot icons in a single card
Important Notes About Jackpots
The seeds (or starting values for the respective jackpots) are:
- Mini x200 Bet
- Midi x1,000 Bet
- Maxi x10,000 Bet
It is not possible for two players to simultaneously win the jackpot: the jackpot is locked when it is being won. This means that no other bets will be accepted for it, so only one player at a time can win it; The first player would win the jackpot and the second attempt would be unable to place their bet as the jackpot amount that they are playing for has decreased.
Contributions to the jackpot come solely from BCLC. BCLC calculates the contribution based on a player's bet being greater or equal to the minimum qualifying bet. The following contributions will be based on a qualifying bet and added to the jackpot:
- Mini 0.5% Bet
- Midi 0.8% Bet
- Maxi 1% Bet
Winning a progressive jackpot neither contributes to, nor is affected by the daily cumulative winnings limit.
You may only win 1 of each jackpot per play.
