Evolution‘s Red Tiger announced Wednesday that it is launching its timed progressive jackpot games in Michigan, with four operators planned to go live in the coming weeks.
The online slots provider is the only supplier to offer timed jackpots in the US, according to a press release. This jackpot mechanic for online games allows operators to set up progressive jackpots that are guaranteed to hit before a certain time.
Having already launched in Connecticut, Ontario, and Quebec, players in Michigan will now be able to choose from 48 Red Tiger online slot games with these jackpots available.
Each of these games offers two progressive jackpots configurable by the operator, including a standard Mini Jackpot that most operators start at $100 and a Daily Jackpot that is usually configured to start at $1,000.
The Daily Jackpot is configured to hit before a certain time each day. Many operators choose a time between 9:00 pm and 11:00 pm during peak hours. “The excitement builds amongst players as the clock ticks down, and the jackpot value continues to grow,” the company noted.
Proven with gaming operators across Europe, Red Tiger jackpots “add considerable extra excitement” to online slot play, says the supplier. Subject to regulatory approval, the timed jackpots are available with every Red Tiger slot and include jackpot meter widgets that operators can place on their websites and mobile apps.
Jeff Millar, Chief Commercial Officer North America at Evolution, said: “We’re very excited to launch jackpot games in Michigan today. Our unique timed jackpot mechanic will create a sense of excitement amongst players, a thrill that can only come from this countdown effect.”
“We are constantly looking to build on our partnerships and strengthen our relationships with North American operators. We look forward to launching Red Tiger jackpots in all approved jurisdictions across North America,” he added.
