When playing an online slot with a jackpot, are the chances of hitting that jackpot the same on any single spin if one bets $1 or $10?

Answering the question (from my perspective) would depend on knowing whether the ($1 / $10) bets are equally weighted in terms of their contribution to the jackpot pool, in which case one would expect the converse, that the yield, in terms of percentage of hitting said jackpot would be equal as well.

At Grosvenor, they have games with must hit jackpots which are available to all denominations. I think I've read, and always assumed that the software sets the probability to be proportional to the denomination. E.g, 10 times more likely when wagering £1.00 than when wagering £0.10
If you are enjoying the game, you're already winning.

Jackpot Game
Win one or more jackpot tiers when three jackpot symbols appear on the reels or the jackpot is triggered by а game feature. The chances of winning a jackpot increase in correlation with the size of the stake played. Тhe jackpot is triggered randomly and can be won by playing any of the linked jackpot games. To win the jackpot, the player is not required to make any decision other than to spin the reels. The stake value cannot be changed during free spins. Internet connectivity issues may cause delays in jackpot messages or updates, but they do not affect actual jackpot wins. It is not possible for two players to win the same jackpot, in the event two jackpot winnings occur close to one another the jackpot will be assigned in their respective order. Due to connectivity issues the jackpot value displayed may differ from the effective jackpot value. The jackpot could be temporary deactivated. When this occurs all contributions are paused. The jackpot amount available upon reactivation will be the same as before the deactivation.

If you are enjoying the game, you're already winning.

I personally think there has been a shift in the transparency in this website and not necessarily a transparency shift but a willingness to accept certain aspects of gaming that had not been accepted before. We have the wizard talking about must hit slot machines and other advantage plays that would have been deemed voodoo months ago to 99 percent of the people who visit this site

It seems logical to assume that would be the case, but I've learned not to assume without investigating first :) Thanks much!

I wish American facing casinos would post their policies as transparently as Grosvenor does. Great information - thanks for taking the time to post it!

Thanks for the heads-up, heatmap. I'll keep my eyes open and my wallet close.
