High-quality graphics backed by hi-fidelity sound effects and fast, smooth play, are sure to make this new progressive a players’ favorite.
Francine Haliva, Spokesperson for Jackpot Madness commented, “The progressive jackpot for Poker Ride is the first Jackpot Madness table game jackpot to pay ten percent of the jackpot for a Straight Flush, similar to land based casinos. Players of Poker Ride can enjoy progressive poker action and all the other fantastic features found on Microgaming’s Viper software platform where Poker Ride is available.”
Continuing Microgaming’s commitment to continually update and improve online progressive games, Jackpot Madness is also launching a new and improved version of WowPot. The new 5-reel, 15 payline game is sure to please WowPot enthusiasts as players now have even more chances to win. The Wowpot symbol is still wild, and when 5 of them align on the 15th payline, a player wins the progressive jackpot.
Francine Haliva added, “There are now even more ways to win WowPot, as the additional paylines ensure that the game has a high hit rate. In addition to the wild symbol, the game has multiplier and scatter features. Like the original Wowpot, the 5-reel, 15 payline version is particularly suitable for the beginner to intermediate player, although players at all levels are certain to love it.”
To celebrate this exciting new game launch, Jackpot Madness will feature Poker Ride as the December Game of the Month.
