Where can I play Jackpot Party / 5 Dragons / Other Slot online?
In general the slot games found at online casinos are not the same titles as the games you can play at land-based casinos. This has changed a bit with Wagerworks casinos now offering IGT Games (Virgin Casino - No USA). There are however lots of slots that are similar to the ones you play at offline casinos.

While it would be a great way to win, all online casinos shuffle the cards much more regularly than land-based casinos. This makes counting cards a technique that will not gain you any advantage online - it would just be too easy to win.

Unlike at land based casinos where big progressive wins are paid out over years, online jackpots are paid out in one lump sum. The only exception to this rule are the Mega Jackpots at Wagerworks casinos which are paid in installments.
