Jackpot 6000 is a popular three reel, 5 payline classic slot game which was developed by Net Entertainment. In addition to a 6000 coin jackpot, the game also features a double-up game and a Supermeter mode in which you can win random jackpots.
The jackpot in the game is, as the name suggests, 6000 coins which is the payout for three Joker symbols appearing in any active payline. The second highest payout is 1600 coins for an 8 coin bet when the same combination appears on the reels.
The regular symbols are the Joker, Star, Bell, Grapes, Lemons and Cherries. Being a simple game, Jackpot 6000 does not have a wild symbol or a scatter symbol. The game however, has two interesting bonus features: the gamble feature and the Super-meter Jackpot Bonus feature. The gamble feature is activated whenever any winning combination appears on the reels. The player chooses either heads or tails, and if he/she wins, the winning amount is doubled.
The Supermeter feature is optionally activated after any winning spin. Clicking spin again adds your winnings to the Supermeter display at the top of the machine. Supermeter mode raises the stakes by costing 20 coins per spin. However, this feature gives the player an opportunity to win when there are two Jokers anywhere on the reels. Each combination of two Jokers gives the player a random prize bonus of between 10 and 6000 coins. If you do not wish to enter Supermeter mode or double up your winnings you can press Collect to bank your win instead.
Information on payout rate (RTP)
Jackpot 6000 has an enormous range in its payout rate and it is critical that you always wager the maximum 10 coins when playing this game. That is because the RTP ranges from a pathetic 74.9% - 79.2% when wagering 1-8 coins. However the range is a much more respectable 95.1% - 98.9% when wagering the maximum 10 coins. The range is due to the claim that the Supermeter mode is skill based and therefore a skilled player can achieve a higher RTP. The only possible skill would be to know when to stop playing the Supermeter mode and collect your winnings, but without any published information on the optimal conditions to do that, it is a bit of a moot point.
