- A Progressive Jackpot (PJP) is a payout which increases each time the game with a Jackpot is played, but the jackpot is not won. With each purchase of cards, a contribution % from the total wager is added to the Jackpot amount. The Progressive Jackpot can start from $0 amount or can have a seed amount on which the contribution % adds up. Player is eligible to win the PJP if the game is linked to the jackpot, he/she purchased the minimum number of tickets for the game and he/she won the bingo game on the required pattern in the set number of calls.

- A Community Progressive Jackpot (CPJ) is a payout which, like the PJP, increases with each game and wager, and which has two prizes: one for the winner(s) of the Jackpot, who wins the bingo game on the required pattern in the set number of calls, and the Community share. By "Community" it is understood that all players who have purchased at least one (1) ticket on the game on which the Jackpot was triggered, will get a share of the Community prize. As such, the CPJ amount is the sum of Winner prize and the Community Share. The Community Share could either be Equal, or Proportional. If Equal, all players who participated in the winning Jackpot game will get an equal share of the total Community Share. If Proportional, all participants will get a share of the Community Share proportional to the number of tickets each player has bought. Free tickets will count towards the eligibility of winning a share of the jackpot. When the progressive jackpot is won, the jackpot for the next play is reset to a predetermined value, and resumes increasing under the same rule.
