- And if your bonus total was zero you are given a huge 100x your bet.
Shopping Spree II Progressive
This slot has an RTG Network Progressive jackpot that is very often rather large.
We have seen cases where this jackpot was well over 200,000 or 300,000 dollars. In fact the day we did the screen shot for the review it was over $110.000. That is one of those truly life altering amounts.
Methods of Winning Progressive
The method to win the big progressive is as follows.
Progressive is won when you get 5 Diamond Rings on a payline, with a 20X Sale substitute.
Our Final word
We are no stranger to this game and have played it quite a few times over the years. Admittedly we do like the version II much better.
Bonus rounds were quite fun and the extra bonus tally adding up did add to the excitement. We did not win that 100 grand progressive but plan to visit to try again soon.
It’s easy to see why this slot is on a lot of players lists to give a spin or two often.
