Jackpot 6000 Slot
Jackpot 6000 is a 3-reel, max 5-pay line slot from NetEnt. Although NetEnt are famed for their high-quality video slots (and indeed are regarded by many as the leaders in this field), they do produce the infrequent traditional slot machine as well. Jackpot 6000 fits this bill very nicely. It's an online slot with a layout that should be familiar to anyone who has ever as much as seen a slot machine, one-armed bandit or pokie in their time. There are only three reels, but there are five pay lines – each of the three rows plus both diagonals.
The symbols used are very traditional too – cherries, lemons, blueberries, bells and golden stars. The most welcome site is the Jackpot Jester, who can win you the maximum jackpot of 6,000 lovely coins. This chunky jackpot is only available if you bet the maximum amount.
You can pay either one or two coins (each coin is worth 0.10) to activivate one line, four to activate two lines, six for three, eight for four and ten to activate all five possible lines. There are no wild or scatter symbols. To set the reels in motion, you just hit the 'spin' button. You can automatically pay ten coins for all five lines if you hit the 'max bet' button.
Payout & bonus rounds
The lowest payout is for three cherries and three lemons, at twenty coins. As mentioned previously, the maximum jackpot is 6,000 coins for three jesters.
All wins can be gambled. You must decide upon the outcome of a coin toss by hitting the 'heads' or 'tails' button. A series of six coins will flash and the light will eventually settle at the heads or tails end. Guess right and your winnings are doubled. Guess wrong and you lose your winnings. If you don't want to gamble just hit the 'collect' button. You can reduce the amount of winnings you have available to gamble with by selecting the 'transfer' button.
When you play at the max bet level then you have the chance of using the 'Supermeter' option. When you win, hit spin and your winnings will transfer to the Supermeter. You then activate an additional winning option – two jokers anywhere will land you a mystery win which can be anything from ten to six thousand coins.
Three reel slots are not known for their bonus features and games, so if you prefer slots with lots of action, you need to be looking at video slots instead. That being said, this game is very nicely renderered as you would expect with it being a NetEnt release. Even the reels give a little 'bounce' when they land, just as they do in real world slots. As three reel online slots go, this is definitely one of the very best.
