Age of Gods Pays Seven Figures
The Age of Gods series of progressive slots by Playtech offers players opportunities to win big jackpots on each and every spin. This series of games’ top jackpot has recently been triggered, and it’s one of the bigger payouts for this particular prize.
A win worth $1,015,688 was had on the Age of the Gods Ultimate Power progressive jackpot, the highest of the four-tier jackpot system.
Players who enjoy online slots know that what you always shoot for is the biggest jackpot you can land, and that’s exactly what happened with a lucky player on a game from this series. This big win shows that Playtech is still in the conversation when it comes to the progressive jackpot slot sub-genre and that they are still awarding major prizes along these lines.
Details on the Win
There are actually four different progressives that are part of the games in this series. We have reviews available of a number of the titles in the Age of the Gods progressive slot set, and in all of them, we cover how the largest of the four progressives starts out at a value of $100,000.
One of the reasons this win is such a big deal is because it paid out at more than ten times the seed or starting value, which isn’t something that you see all that often in general in the progressive side of the online casino world.
The actual value was $1,015,688, so it just barely made the 10x cutoff point, but it’s a tremendous and life-changing win in any case that any player would love to have.
Where the Ultimate Power Jackpots Came From
Years ago, Playtech had a licensing agreement to make a set of slots based on Marvel characters. This licensing agreement ended, and to the surprise of tons of people in the online gambling world, Marvel decided not to renew the licensing contract.
In retrospect, it may have been because they were working towards putting together the hit series of Marvel-based movies that have come out over the past several years.
Once that contract was up, Playtech had to keep the jackpots going, and they wanted to have a series of games to do so. This is where the Age of the Gods series of slots became so popular because they were built to replace the Marvel series of games.
For people who are interested, Marvel had a deal with Cryptologic before Playtech where they had a similar series of progressive slots that were then pulled after the switch to Playtech for licensing purposes. It was a similar situation with games that had three progressives instead of four, but Cryptologic just pulled the titles and didn’t really replace them with anything.
More About This Jackpot
The largest that this jackpot has ever been was $1.37 million back in 2011. To give you an idea of how big this $1 million+ payout is, the average is just under $670,000 for this game, so it was getting close to being worth twice the average jackpot amount.
The Ultimate Power jackpot is one of four that pay at various smaller levels. The smaller the jackpot, the more often it pays with the smaller one sometimes paying several times each week. It’s definitely a key part of the progressive jackpot set for Playtech, and as a result, it’s a key part of their overall portfolio.
