In the discussions on progressive slots, one type of progressive slot game is often forgotten. This is the Dollar Ball slot game, which is a unique Playtech product available only at Playtech online casinos. The progressive jackpot is not attached to the main slot game but to an independent side game with a separate bet.

In order to be eligible for the progressive jackpot players have to activate the Dollar Ball icon located at the top right part of the screen by clicking on it. Numbers from 1 to 49 are displayed on the screen and players have to pick five of them. The players can manually pick numbers of their choice or click on Random pick for an automatic selection. Simultaneously the Dollar Ball bet is deducted from the players’ balance. Players must be aware that this game will be automatically played along with every main game spin with the same numbers, until they select different numbers or disable the side game. The selected numbers are displayed at the top of the screen. Once the slots game is activated and the reels are spinning, five numbers will be randomly drawn and will appear just above the selected numbers. If any of the drawn numbers match the selected numbers, the win amount will appear below them. The payouts from the Dollar Ball game will be added to the players’ balance along with the winnings from the main game.

Dollar Ball wins are paid according to a separate pay table which is displayed within the main game pay table. For most Playtech Dollar Ball games the payouts are as follows. If there is a match of one number then the multiplier is 1 and the player is paid an amount equal to the Dollar Ball bet. For a match of two numbers the multiplier is 2 and for a match of three numbers the multiplier is 25. When a player gets four matching numbers he wins 1% of the progressive jackpot pool. When a player gets five matching numbers he wins the entire progressive jackpot. Every bet increases the progressive jackpot amount and every partial payout reduces it. After a complete progressive jackpot has been won, a new pool is started with the seed amount. For most games the seed amount is 10,000 times the side bet.

A fair number of Playtech online slots games have the Dollar Ball side game. Players who are not interested in the Dollar Ball game can wager on the video slots in the usual manner without activating it. Captain’s Treasure is one of the most popular of the Dollar Ball slot games. It has a pirate theme with symbols like treasure chest, swords, captain’s wheel, anchor and treasure map. A Night Out is the favorite of female players. The slot game features three lovely ladies enjoying themselves sipping some delicious fruit punches served by an attractive hunky waiter. Forest of Wonders is based on the Lewis Carroll novel Alice in Wonderland. Popular characters from the classic like White Rabbit, Dormouse, Cheshire Cat, Caterpillar, Mad Hatter and March Hare appear as symbols. Sports lovers will enjoy Football Rules and the golf themed slot game Golden Tour. Other Dollar Ball slot games include Alien Hunter, Geisha Story, What’s Cooking, Desert Treasure, Lotto Madness, Greatest Odyssey, Highway Kings, Dr Lovemore, Thrill Seekers and Silver Bullet.
