Huge Progressive Hit at Ignition Casino

December 20, 2017


Huge progressive jackpots do not hit very often, but when they do then the joy is unbelievable. And this is the right season to take home big money. This is exactly what happened to an Ignition Casino player named Omar, who ended a weekend richer by over AU$1.5 million.

Omar was playing the festive themed progressive pokie Jackpot Pinatas on his smartphone. One of the biggest attractions of this Realtime Gaming pokie is that you need to use minimum coin denominations of only AU$0.25 in order to be eligible for the big prize. Omar had been playing this online pokie for a while and was winning about AU$7,000. It was then that he triggered the free spins feature by landing three or more dog pinata symbols on the reels. He was awarded the minimum of five free spins, but he did not need more than one. In the first free spin Omar landed five bull pinatas in an active payline and set the cash registers ringing. The progressive jackpot ticker at that time stood at a massive AU$1,557,193, all of which went to Omar.

Jackpot Pinatas online pokie adds a Mexican touch to the celebrations. Pinatas are decoration pieces in the shape of colourful animals. Apart from the dog and bull pinatas, the progressive pokie also has a donkey pinata. This is the wild symbol. The other Mexican symbols include tacos, limes, roses, rings, sombreros and beautiful senoritas.

Jackpot Pinatas is not the only online pokie with a progressive jackpot at Ignition Casino. The online casino boasts of a AU$4.4 million jackpot pool right now, even after Jackpot Pinatas has just delivered. The bulk of it, over AU$2.8 million, comes from a pokie game called Shopping Spree. This game is perfect for the Christmas season. Omar will now be doing his shopping in the real world, but other Ignition Casino players can try their luck on Shopping Spree.

The symbols in Shopping Spree are a female shopper’s delight. They start from flowers, lipsticks and perfumes and go up to sandals and pearl necklaces. The dollar sign and tote bag trigger two pick objects type bonus games on the second screen. But, the symbol to look out for is the diamond ring. If you land five of them on any one of the nine paylines you will win AU$100,000 or the progressive jackpot, whichever is more at that time. In order to be eligible you need to be playing with maximum bet.
