How to Breed the Jackpot Dragon

Breeding the Jackpot dragon is no easy feat – its breeding requirements are quite restrictive. Here is what you need to know:

  • Only available at specific times – The Jackpot dragon is limited release. It can only be bred during special events when made available by the game. Watch for announcements!
  • Requires a monument – To even attempt breeding, you must have the Fortuna’s Fountain monument placed in your park. This special structure unlocks the power to breed Jackpot.
  • Specific combo required – The breeding combo is always the same: you must breed using a Crystal dragon and a Leap Year dragon, both at least level 11.
  • Low success rate – Even with the right combo, your odds of getting a Jackpot egg are still low. So expect to try many times.

The restrictive combo and low odds make Jackpot one of the hardest dragons to acquire in the game. But the payout is worth it! Next, let’s look at incubation times once you do get that coveted egg.

Jackpot Dragon Egg and Incubation Information

If you’re fortunate enough to breed a Jackpot dragon egg, here is what to expect for incubation:

  • Egg type: Gold
  • Incubation time: 30 hours
  • Possible incubators: Island, Cave, Epic Breeding Island
  • Incubation cost: 200 gems or 68,000 coins

The long 30 hour incubation time is standard for most limited dragons. Make sure you have an open habitat before the egg is ready to hatch!

Now let’s look at the habitat requirements once you’ve hatched your dragon.

Habitat Requirements for the Jackpot Dragon

This glittering golden dragon needs a worthy habitat once hatched:

  • Habitat choice: Gold (or Epic Breeding Island)
  • Habitat capacity: 2 dragons
  • Habitat cost: 500 gems
  • Habitat size: 2×2

The Gold Habitat is a natural fit thematically for housing this golden, gem-covered dragon. Make sure to clear a space before your Jackpot egg incubation completes!

How the Jackpot Dragon Earns Coins

The main appeal of the Jackpot dragon is producing a payload of gold for your park. Here’s a breakdown of how it generates income:

  • Earning rate: 5000 coins per minute
  • Max capacity: 500,000 max coins
  • Earning total: 500,000 coins in 100 minutes
  • Earning schedule: 1 minute active, 4 minutes idle

No other dragon earns gold as quickly! With boosts and leveling up, the Jackpot dragon’s output grows even higher over time.
