Virginia Lottery Launches First Linked Progressive Jackpot Games

The Virginia Lottery becomes the first state lottery in the US to offer linked progressive jackpot e-Instant games. The games come from Instant Win Gaming (IWG), which partnered with the Virginia Lottery earlier this year to launch IWG’s first instant jackpot game, Jungle Tumble Jackpots.

The first two games to share progressive jackpots are Cash Buster Multiplier and Prospector’s Gold, now available via the Virginia Online Lottery.

“We are excited to unveil our new linked progressive jackpot e-Instants offering, which adds to our growing progressive jackpot e-Instant portfolio,” said Rob Wesley, Director of Digital at the Virginia Lottery. “We have high hopes for this launch, and as always, we look forward to partnering with IWG on all of its upcoming innovations.”

About The Online Instant Games With The Linked Jackpots

Cash Buster Multiplier and Prospector’s Gold will both contribute to the Big Money Jackpots. The three progressive jackpots are the express (mini jackpot), great (mid-tier jackpot), and jumbo (top-prize jackpot). The express jackpots are expected to pay out multiple times per day, the mid-tier jackpot twice per week, and the top-prize jackpot twice per month. 

However, payout frequency will depend on the popularity of the games.

To win the jackpot in either game, players must reveal three matching jackpot symbols. The odds of winning any prize in Cash Buster Multiplier is 1 in 4.64. The odds of winning a prize in Prospector’s Gold is 1 in 4.73. At the time of writing this article, the shared progressive jackpot was $68,618.
