Top ranking of the biggest slot machine winners
Slot machines remain the most popular games among casino customers. These machines are easy to play and do not require any skill on the part of the players. The stakes of slot machines are low and the winnings are also low most of the time. However, it is these slots that are also associated with some of the highest player winnings in the name of progressive jackpots.
The progressive jackpot concept means that the amount of money a player can expect to win in a single play increases exponentially. Here is a list of some of the biggest winners on slot machines in recent times as well as in the history of slot machines.
Best-of 3 from the casinos to hit the jackpot on the slot machines!
