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.

Gambling Commission to ban Credit Cards starting April 2020

The UK Gambling Commission said that starting the 14th of April 2020, no gambling business can allow consumers from Great Britain to use Credit cards to add funds . This news comes after the review of the Commission of online gambling and the Government’s Review of Gaming Machines and Social Responsibility Measures. A public consultation was carried out between August and November 2019.

In Great Britain there are currently 24 million adults that gamble, with 10.5 million of those gambling online. Around 800,000 consumers use credit cards to gamble according to UK Finance. Separate research undertaken by the Commission shows that 22% of online gamblers using credit cards to gamble are classed as problem gamblers – with even more at some risk of harm.

This decision however will not affect consumers using their debit cards or prepaid cards.

Neil McArthur, Gambling Commission chief executive, said, “Credit card gambling can lead to significant financial harm. The ban that we have announced today should minimise the risks of harm to consumers from gambling with money they do not have. Research shows that 22% of online gamblers using credit cards are problem gamblers, with even more suffering some form of gambling harm.

We also know that there are examples of consumers who have accumulated tens of thousands of pounds of debt through gambling because of credit card availability. There is also evidence that the fees charged by credit cards can exacerbate the situation because the consumer can try to chase losses to a greater extent.”

“We realise that this change will inconvenience those consumers who use credit cards responsibly but we are satisfied that reducing the risk of harm to other consumers means that action must be taken.” he said. “But we will evaluate the ban and watch closely for any unintended circumstances for consumers.”

“The ban is part of our ongoing work to reduce gambling harm. We also need to continue the work we have been doing with gambling operators and the finance industry to ensure consumers only gamble with money they can afford to spend.”

Culture Minister Helen Whately said, “Whilst millions gamble responsibly, I have also met people whose lives have been turned upside down by gambling addiction.  There is clear evidence of harm from consumers betting with money they do not have, so it is absolutely right that we act decisively to protect them.

“In the past year we have introduced a wave of tougher measures, including cutting the maximum stake on fixed odds betting terminals, bringing in tighter age and identity checks for online gambling and expanding national specialist support through the NHS Long Term Plan. We have also secured a series of commitments from five leading gambling operators that will include £100 million funding towards treatment for problem gamblers.

But there is more to do. We will be carrying out a review of the Gambling Act to ensure it is fit for the digital age and we will be launching a new nationwide addiction strategy in 2020. We will not hesitate to take any further action necessary to protect people from gambling harm.”

Also today it has been announced by the Commission that there will be changes to licence conditions which will require all online gambling operators to participate in the GAMSTOP scheme and offer their customers the service from 31 March.

Fath El Kheir reaches Malta for promoting the 2022 World Cup in Qatar

The Fath El Kheir reaches Sliema Harbor today the 24th of September 2019 @ 17:00 hours.

The Cultural Village Foundation – Katara launches ‘Fath Al Kheir 4’ journey, which will travel to a number of European and Arab cities on a two-year trip to promote the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

The journey started from Istanbul to the Mediterranean Sea, navigating to Greece, then Albania, Croatia. It will stop at the Italian port of Genoa. From there it will continue to Monte Carlo, Nice, Marseille, Barcelona, Tangier, Algeria. and reach Tunisia in 2021.

Although it wasn’t schedule to come to Malta, this has changed en route and we can enjoy the beautiful 40 meter long dhow.

The Fath el Kheir Journey represents one of the most important activities of the Katara Traditional Dhows Festival. It aims at reviving the heritage of ancestors in traveling and navigating through the gliding dhows, preserving this kind of heritage and teaching the youth how to navigate and travel bu sailing dhows.

This is the first trip of its kind in the region, with the availability of modern means of navigation and the difficulty of providing dhows capable of accommodating such maritime trips, in addition to the readiness of a group of experienced youth.
