The Progressive Jackpot (3 ships resulting on the win line)
The Jackpot for Dead Man's Chest is progressive. This means that the Jackpot amount is variable. The Progressive Jackpot consists of a fixed minimum amount, which starts at zero ($0.00) and gradually increases by a percentage of funds inputted into the game until it is won. When the Jackpot is won, it is reset to zero ($0.00) and begins to rise again.
Contributions to the jackpot come solely from BCLC. BCLC contributes the equivalent of 10% of a player's bet when that wager is greater than or equal to the minimum qualifying bet.
If you have 3 Jackpot icons then, whether or not your bet qualified for the Jackpot, you win your bet back.
It is not possible for two players to simultaneously with the Jackpot. The Jackpot is locked when it is being won, meaning that no other bets will be accepted for it. The first player would win the Jackpot and the second player would be unable to place their bet as the Jackpot amount that they are playing for has decreased.
To qualify for the Progressive Jackpot you must have a minimum total bet of $1.00.
