A gaming device awards the players that hit the jackpot winning combination the base value of the progressive jackpot rather than the current amount. The progressive nature of the jackpot system does not affect a player's winning amount until after the win takes place. A player who wins the progressive jackpot of this invention receives a payout equal to the base value of the jackpot and subsequently continues to earn a percentage of the coins wagered at each of the machines linked to the progressive jackpot from his win until the next win.
