You must have seen that some pokies machines offer one or more progressive jackpots always seem to have much higher valued jackpots on offer. These pokies machines often get more play time than other pokies machines which results in their respective jackpots becoming so large in value, however it is also due to the fast that they have much higher seed values too.
Whenever a progressive jackpot is won and paid out, the pokies machine that has such a jackpot is then going to reset its jackpot to something known as a seed value, and that is the value at which it will start to grow in value from.
Most pokies machines will not reset their jackpots to zero, instead they will have a set in stone seed value at which the jackpot will be reset when won, and it will be dependent on just which pokies you are playing as to whether that jackpot is going to be a high valued one or a fairly small valued one.
Pokies with high seed values
In Multi currency pokies machines the seed value will be in just one currency and as such if you are playing for example Microgaming pokies machines those pokies have jackpots which use GBP as their respective seed values.
As such if a player is playing one of their progressive pokies machines in any other currency other than GBP when the jackpot is won and the pokies then resets is jackpot to its seed value, the difference in regards to the currency exchange rate of the currency the jackpot was won in and GBP is then also added to the jackpot.
That is why when you notice a Microgaming progressive pokies machine has just paid out its jackpot the seed value is much higher in value that its published seed value, unless the player who wins that jackpot is playing in GBP in which case the jackpot will then reset back to the seed value published for that pokies machine.
Also that every player no matter in which currency they are playing such a pokies will have an equal chance of winning the respective jackpots, as long as they are playing the pokies in the required way that the jackpot element of the pokies is activated on each spin thy play off.

When the Mega Jackpot is finally won on that pokies machine, which can and does often take some time to be won the jackpot will then reset itself to 1,000,000.00 and will then start to grow in value again as more and more players play that pokies.
The Major Millions pokies machine is another pokies on which a fairly substantial jackpot can be won and when playing that pokies machine as soon the jackpot is won it will reset to a value of 250,000.00 in the currency you are playing it for.
