Mini Jackpot: Seeds at €5
Minor Jackpot: Seeds at €100
Major Jackpot: Seeds at €10,000
Mega Jackpot: Seeds at €5,000,000

Terms & Conditions

In order to participate in the Jackpot, players must be opted in and be playing a game associated with the Jackpot (see a full list of games here).

The Jackpot is a progressive Jackpot, with every Jackpot bet, a portion of the Jackpot bet is added to the Jackpot.

By opting in, the player agrees to be charged for the Jackpot bet, which will be deducted on every game round on the associated game.

The cost per Jackpot bet is €0.10 and cannot be changed.

To participate in the Jackpot, a minimum bet of €0.10 is required in the associated game.

The deduction of the Jackpot bet will be reflected in the player balance after the following game round in the associated game.

The Jackpot can trigger on any game round, and the winner is picked at random.

The Jackpot consists of a wheel divided into coloured segments. Each segment is associated with a different progressive Jackpot.

Depending on where the wheel stops, you can win one of the progressive Jackpots.

When one game round makes a claim for a certain Jackpot, it is locked for that game round and simultaneously assured that no other game round can claim the same Jackpot. Therefore, it is technically not possible to have two simultaneous wins of the same Jackpot.

The Jackpot winnings will automatically be transferred to the player’s account.

Progressive Jackpot wins are subject to verification by LeoVegas and the Software Supplier. All decisions are final, and no correspondence will be entered into.

All players that are opted-in when a Jackpot is won will receive a notification within 30 seconds about the Jackpot amount being won.

The current Jackpot amount is displayed at the bottom of the screen, in the Jackpot bar.

Jackpot values displayed in the Jackpot bar are delayed by up to 30 seconds. On rare occasions, two Jackpots may be won within those 30 seconds, in which case the win of the second Jackpot is the new re-seeded Jackpot which is smaller than the previous Jackpot won.

The amount paid out is the Jackpot value on the casino server when a Jackpot is won. Every effort is made to ensure that the Jackpot value displayed in the Jackpot bar is the same as the one on the casino server.

The displayed Jackpot win can, due to rounding, marginally differ from the actual win.

There is no upper limit on progressive Jackpot values.

LeoVegas Jackpot contains Mega, Major, Minor and Mini Jackpots. The following contributions are made from each bet:

10.50% of the Jackpot bet is contributed to the MINI Jackpot, of which 25% goes to the next Jackpot.
21% of the bet is contributed to the MINOR Jackpot, of which 10% goes to the next Jackpot.
21% of the bet is contributed to the MAJOR Jackpot, of which 20% goes to the next Jackpot.
17.50% of the bet is contributed to the MEGA Jackpot, of which 20% goes to the next Jackpot.

When a Jackpot is won, the start-up value for the next Jackpot is:

MINI: €5
MINOR: €100
MAJOR: €10,000
MEGA: €5,000,000

The RTP of the Jackpot is 70%.

The RTP of the associated game is wholly separate and does not affect the Jackpot. The RTP of the related games may differ; please see the game rules in each associated game for its RTP value.

If the communication between the LeoVegas and Jackpot server fails, the game becomes unavailable. There will be no contributions or claims towards the Jackpot. The Jackpot amount remains the same until the communication is resumed.

List of games associated with the Jackpot:

Aloha Christmas
Bonanza
Book of Dead

Who do i promote?

If you are an affiliate, you get a vast number of casinos, sportsbook, poker, bingo etc. operators to promote on your website and your other marketing channels.

Do you always take the best decision to promote a new operator?

Here are 5 things you should consider and make your decision easier:

  1. License

Every serious operator will have a license for providing gambling in the jurisdictions they intend to promote their product/s. For an affiliate, a licensed operator means that it will gain their players trust, on time payments and many other benefits.

  • Terms and Conditions

Read the Terms and Conditions before signing up, always. They need to be transparent, easy to understand, legal and it will give you an overall idea of their business practice.

Some operators might include in their T&C the length of the collaboration (for example: you can be terminated if you do not bring new players within a period of time and you will receive no further income from your current players), monthly revenue calculation formula can differ, restrictions on how to market etc.

  • Commission Deal

Equally important is how much you can get to promote a product. Some operators are flexible and offer a variety of commission types, such as: revenue share, CPA (cost per acquisition), Hybrid deal (combination of both revenue share and CPA), CPC (cost per click), CPM (cost per mille), retainer deal etc.

If you consider that your website and traffic is valuable and you need a better deal than what is advertised on their website, don’t hesitate to get in contact directly with the operator and negotiate yourself a better deal or contact us and we will negotiate on your behalf.

  • Marketing

The operator has an active marketing department. You will get access to different marketing materials, some exclusively for your players if you request that, seasonal offers and in general they are always trying to keep the players engaged and their retention % is quite high.

  • Relationship

It is important to have a good relationship with your business partner. Get to know the Affiliate Manager representing the operator, build trust, have a direct access line to him/her for any questions/issue you might encounter.

Good luck!

Gaming Innovation Group signs Heads of Terms agreement with Grupo Slots for the supply of platform and sportsbook services

Gaming Innovation Group Inc. (GiG), has signed a head of terms agreement with Grupo Slots, Argentina’s premier gaming and entertainment group, to enter the regulated City of Buenos Aires online gaming market. Grupo Slots is headquartered in San Luis, Argentina, and provides top-of-the-line entertainment and leisure services in more than 20 locations across Argentina, where it operates casinos, gambling & bingo halls, lottery, and also the online gaming website Jugadon.com in addition to hotels, restaurants and convention centres.    

GiG will provide Grupo Slots with a full online turnkey solution, which includes the technical iGaming platform, Sportsbook, front end development, GiGs data platform & GiG Logic . The minimum contract period will be 4 years with an automatic extension for one additional year and is based on a revenue share model in combination with set up fees. Signing of the final agreement is anticipated before the end of Q3. 

Argentina is regulating online gambling on a province by province basis, with expectations of licenses to be awarded to Grupo Slots for Buenos Aires City, anticipated to be the largest market within Argentina, in the later part of 2020 which will be followed by the online launch. H2GC estimates the Total Gambling market in Argentina to be worth EUR 352M, however only 7% is currently done online therefore as an emerging market there is significant growth potential in the interactive space as the market adapts to online gambling, driven by regulation and growth of digital penetration. GiG is well placed to capture this market growth with a leading partner in Grupo Slots who already have a regulated online presence with Jugadon.com. 

Grupo Slots has the vision to be the best entertainment and leisure option in the markets it serves and is a customer centric organisation with a focus on responsibility gambling therefore GiG is partnering with not only one of the largest land based operators in the market but one that aligns to its own values and product offering. 

Richard Brown CEO of GiG “I am extremely excited to partner with and onboard Grupo Slots, we see a great potential in the regulated environments within Argentina as that market is in the early transformation from offline to online gambling, and to partner with one of the largest and premier land based operators in the market is great opportunity to showcase our product in the LATAM market while delivering the platform for online gambling transformation for Grupo Slots” 

Juan Ignacio Torres General Manager of Grupo Slots “We are extremely pleased to have reached this agreement with a company like GIG, an international company with extensive experience, which demonstrates a high level of seriousness and excellence in the field of online gaming. On our part, we also contribute 35 years of experience, innovation, infrastructure and knowledge of the Argentine gambling market, currently being one of the few operators with online gaming presence (www.jugadon.com). This agreement complements us and gives us a tool of quality and excellence to continue growing in this market with so much future potential”  

It is anticipated that the license application will be granted in Q4 of 2020 with go live shortly afterwards therefore GiG expects a positive contribution from 2021 onwards.

What do you need to prepare for a trade-show?

Are you going to exhibit at a trade-show anytime soon? Then read below what you need to prepare to make sure you make the most of it.

  • Pre Event

Setup your target and your goal. What you want to achieve is the most important thing you need to consider when you prepare for a trade-show.

Do you want to attract more customers and get feedback on a new product release? Then make sure you have good salespeople in your team attending the event.

Do you want to be remembered? You could create some unique and cool marketing materials and giveaways or design an impressive stand.

  • At the Event

Of course, at the event is the best way to show/promote/sell your product/s. So, make sure your team know the product/s inside-out.

You will need to appeal to senses – you cannot be too technical with someone that doesn’t have the in-depth knowledge. Keep it simple and generalise so that the potential customer will have an overall understanding of what you are offering.

Last but not least, think like a salesperson.

  • Post event

Now it is the right time to draw the line and discuss with your entire team what you have learned and how it went, so debrief and review with colleagues.

Don’t forget to follow up with leads and offer enough time for responses as everyone will be catching up with the workload.

You have collected enough information and feedback from the attendees. Plan for the future and think in advance if you want to exhibit at another show!

Good luck and contact us for the organisation of your next event.

5 tips for a successful Conference attendance

Whether you have a new product on the market, or you are already well known, if you exhibit at a conference or event in your field, here are 5 tips to make your event successful:

  1. Choose the best Conference/Event to attend

You have your product; you know your target markets and if it is a B2B or B2C or both. All you have to do is choose the conference you want to participate.

You can narrow it down by considering three factors:

  • Size: small (under 5,000 attendees), medium (bigger than 5,000 attendees) or bigger conferences (over 10,000 attendees);
  • Recognition: every conference has its own reputation and crowd quality;
  • Location: if your product is being offered worldwide (within allowed jurisdictions) then the work into finding the right one is a bit harder;
  • Be remembered

Don’t attend an event and have a stand just for the sake of being there. Make sure people remember your company, your personnel and your product. You can achieve that by using different methods, including stand size and uniqueness, unique branded gadgets and giveaways, employees full of energy with good knowledge of the product and any ready answers for any unforeseen questions that might arise;

  • Get the best ROI

I often see that companies don’t make the best of their presence at a conference. If you are ready to spend money on being there, make sure you come prepared to get feedback from potential customers, retain their info, follow up and don’t forget to have fun.

  • Use professionals

Although many companies benefit of having an in-house Event Management team, don’t leave your exhibition in the hands of untrained employees that do not have experience in the field. Make the use of professionals, such as our team that will understand your needs, provide you with the best advice based on experience and many conferences we attended.

  • Budget

There is something to be done for every budget. With the right team and with enough time in advance up to the conference the better.

Contact us for free advice on how to make your next event even better!
