Not much to it. (And it isn't "mine.")

The idea is that progressives build up a pot. There is some point at which the player has a positive expectancy. (My limited experience was with video poker progressives but I heard that there were slot teams as well.)

Video poker was easier because, given a specific rule set, one could compute the exact point when the progressive was large enough to produce the positive expectation.

I recall years ago that the local newspaper here in Reno would list all the positive-play progressives. Well, they didn't call them that. They called them big jackpots, but from that list one could do the math.

I'd bet there are others here with more knowledge on the subject than I.
