Posted by: CasinosOnline in Articles

One question we do know you are likely to want to know the answer to in regards to playing some of the many different video poker games available to online players is just how long it will take on average for the jackpots attached and on offer those games to be won.

For by knowing how often progressive video poker game jackpots are won then you will be able to wait until the jackpot reaches a certain amount to find out when a jackpot has become overdue and may just be about to be won.

Obviously progressive video poker games are like any other variant or video poker in as much as each game is completely random so the jackpots could in theory be won at any time!

However, below you will find an overview of two of the most played online progressive jackpot video poker games and we will be enlighten you when and how much on average each jackpots takes in time to be won and also how large those jackpots do become before on average they are awarded to players playing each of them!

Jackpot Deuces

One of the oldest online progressive video poker games you will come across is the Jackpot Deuces variant, this is a Microgaming designed and supplied game and as such when playing it you are going to be able to play it in one of several different currencies depending of course where in the world you live.

The way this progressive video poker game has been designed and structured is that when playing it for maximum coins if you are dealt out the Royal Flush hand in the suit of Diamonds in any order then you will win the current value of the progressive jackpot as displayed on the jackpot meter.

One thing to note however about this variant is that the coin values are fixed at 1.00 and as such a maximum 5 coin hand will cost you 5.00 per game to have any chance of winning the progressive jackpot.

The average amount that the jackpot grows to in value before being won is £35,738 or whatever currency you have to chosen to play it for and on average that jackpot paying hand is dealt out once every 29 days in total, so keep that in mind if you decide to give this game some play time online!

Supajax

The Supajax video poker game is another progressive jackpot paying video poker game however that game comes with a special additional playing card in the deck and the way in which you will win the progressive jackpot is to be dealt out that one playing card along with all of the Jack playing cards in one single hand.

That game has paid out some very large amounts of cash over the years however on average the amount of cash won by each player is £50,322 and the jackpot tends to be awarded on average once every 45 days.

So if you do fancy putting that progressive video poker game to the test then look out for when the jackpot has grown in value to around the amount mentioned above and then give it a try as it is much more likely to award its jackpot when it has become overdue that it will payout its jackpot when another player has recently won it!

Be aware though that much like the game above the coin values on the Supajax progressive jackpot video poker game are fixed at 1.00 and you do have to play all five coins per game to have a chance of winning the jackpot.

Conclusion

There are going to be some much lower stake progressive video poker games that you can play online and as such do not think that the only variant son offer will force you to play for 5.00 per hand to have any chance of winning a progressive jackpot.

However, one thing that you will discover is that the stakes you are playing for will determine the value of the progressive jackpots for the very low stake variants tend to have much more modest jackpots on offer on hem, unless of course those jackpots have not been won for quite a while.

The payout percentages on offer on progressive video poker games are usually not as high as the payout percentages on offer on some of the more standard types of non progressive video poker games so if you do want the best chance of winning you will probably be best off playing those more standard variants.

Keep in mind too that when playing at online and some mobile casino sites you are going to find both single hand and multi-hand video poker games on offer!
