Measuring progressive jackpots

Games connected to progressive jackpot systems will need to be measured at a base game level (ie the game without the jackpot component). Jackpots are reaching very high values and their performance should be separately monitored. Given jackpots tend to be infrequent and large they will have high volatility ratings, therefore measuring their RTP might not be feasible. In its place other checks can be performed such as whether the frequency and distribution of jackpots and average jackpot levels are as expected. Designers of the jackpot system will be best placed to define the monitoring approach.
