Online slots provider Red Tiger announced on April that they are launching their timed progressive jackpot games in New Jersey, with many operators set to go live on Day 1 of the launch.
Already launched in Connecticut, Ontario, Quebec and most recently Michigan, players can choose from 50+ Red Tiger online slot games that feature these timed jackpots, which include: Cash Volt, Dynamite Riches, Gonzo's Quest Megaways, Piggy Riches Megaways, and Narcos Mexico. So far, the only remaining jurisdictions in the US for Red Tiger to launch its innovative timed jackpots are Pennsylvania and West Virginia, which are soon to follow.
Red Tiger is touted to be the only games supplier to offer timed jackpots in the US. This unique, modern progressive jackpot mechanic for online slots allows operators to set up progressive jackpots that are guaranteed to hit before a certain time.
These games in New Jersey will offer three progressive jackpots, all of which can be configured by the operator:
- Regular Progressive Jackpot - no time limit
- Hourly Jackpot - most operators start at $100
- Daily Jackpot - usually configured to start at $1,000. The Daily Jackpot is set to hit before a certain time each day. Most operators configure it to hit during peak hours, between 9pm and 11pm. The excitement builds up as the clock ticks down and the jackpot value continues to grow.
The New Jersey launch saw several operators go live with Red Tiger jackpots such as BetMGM, Fan Duel and Rush Street Interactive (BetRivers brand) - with more operators coming soon.
Chief Commercial Officer North America at Evolution Jeff Millar said:
"News is travelling fast that timed jackpots are a big hit with players. We've been having fantastic feedback from operators in terms of the high performance these games are seeing in states such as Michigan and Connecticut, and so everyone was looking forward to the New Jersey launch. Timed jackpots bring that extra level of thrill and excitement that players love. We're always looking to bring our unique innovations across into the US, and given its success so far, we can't wait to have that full sweep of jurisdictions in North America for our timed jackpots."
