What types of players are there? Is Progressive Jackpots something for you?
The selection of slot machines is huge both online and at land-based casinos, yet the players who put money in them can be boiled down to three different types of players.

The classic player, The progressive player and the modern player.
The classic player just loves slot machines as they have looked since the last century. He or she does not need either advanced graphics or impressive animations to have fun.
The enjoyment stems from the game itself, and one, three or five pay lines are more than
plentiful, as several just take the attention away from the game’s simple and manageable design.
The classic player is far more interested in a decent payout table than in heaps of bonus material.
However, as the slot machines evolve and the good old slot machines only exist in older people’s anecdotes, there will be fewer and fewer players in this category.
They do exist, however, and online casinos love them.
The progressive player loves adventure and the dream of the big win.
Someone has to win, the mantra often sounds, and the more bloated a jackpot is, the more
progressive players crowd together and pump it even bigger.
A progressive player has only one purpose with his game: the huge jackpot. All small wins are invested almost instantly in the pursuit of the big goal, and paytables, odds and probability rarely achieve the big interest.
Often, progressive players have their particular favorite machines, but they are also the ones that are attracted like bees to honey when a particular jackpot has grown unusually large.
The modern player simply loves just online slots and is today the most widespread type of player in the casino world.
Unlike the classic player, the modern player finds particular joy in today’s impressive graphics, stories, bonus material and general opportunity to disappear into another world while the game takes place.
The more the modern player himself can affect his probability of winning the better. Bonus
features, free spins and variation during the game are in high demand, and the modern player likes to jump from machine to machine to keep up with the latest news.
Progressive jackpots are not for everyone
If we turn our attention again to the progressive jackpot slots, then the huge winning pools
undoubtedly have an alluring effect on most people. However, it is equally undoubted that
machines with progressive jackpots are not the right solution for everyone and that you should carefully consider why you are playing slots before throwing yourself over them.
A typical progressive jackpot slot machine does not offer a higher payback percentage than the other machines or different genre games, for example sports betting like those offered by a sports betting site. And since the huge jackpot makes up the vast majority of the payback percentage, there is of course not much left for the medium and small winnings.
The natural variance between deposit and payout therefore does not offer much opportunity to give you some of your money back while you wait for the big win.
At the same time, it is difficult to adjust its deposits downwards to compensate for the missing small winnings, because most jackpot machines usually require you to use max bet in order to trigger the progressive jackpot.
Therefore, progressive jackpots may not be the right choice if your gaming budget is limited and you also feel like playing for a long time. In that case, you should stick to more classic slots with balanced payout tables.
On the other hand; if you go for the big win in a single (or a few) snatch, then there is no way around the progressives.
