Red Tiger, an online slots provider, has announced that it will be launching its innovative progressive jackpot games in New Jersey, with several operators planning to go live on the day of the launch. Red Tiger already launched in Connecticut, Ontario, Quebec, and most recently Michigan, so players will have access to over 50 online slot games that feature timed jackpots, such as Gonzo’s Quest Megaways, Piggy Riches Megaways, and Narcos Mexico. The only remaining jurisdictions in the US for Red Tiger to launch its exciting, timed jackpots are Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
Several operators in New Jersey, including Rush Street Interactive (BetRivers brand), BetMGM, and FanDuel, have successfully gone live with Red Tiger jackpots. Red Tiger is the only games supplier in the US to offer timed jackpots, which allow operators to set up progressive jackpots that are guaranteed to hit before a certain time.
Each of these games in New Jersey will offer three progressive jackpots, all of which are configurable by the operator. The hourly jackpot usually starts at $100, the daily jackpot starts at $1,000, and a regular progressive jackpot that has no time limit. The daily jackpot is configured to hit before a certain time each day, often during peak hours between 9:00 pm and 11:00 pm. As the clock ticks down and the jackpot value continues to grow, the excitement builds amongst players.
Jeff Millar, Chief Commercial Officer North America at Evolution, said:
“News is traveling 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.”
