All though the overall score is low this is a no frills back to old school type slot, easy to use and is made for those who like the traditional fruit machine.

Where to play?
If you’re looking for a classic styled-Vegas slots, Jackpot 6000 offers something different. This is not your proverbial 3D NetEnt game since it’s more like the fruit machines found in the local pub. The slots features 5 paylines and 3 reels. There’s no strategy to it aside from just clicking or pressing the spin button.
Jackpot 6000 slots can be played on all mobile devices and desktop. I was quite surprised when I found out that it’s one of the most popular NetEnt games ever released. The average return to player (RTP) payout percentage is 98% and offers a total jackpot win of 6,000 coins. That said, the house edge varies from 6% to 1%.
To be honest there’s no in-between with this slots-either you’re all in or you’re out. I decided to test the game in the free ‘spin mode’ and to be honest there’s really nothing to it aside from the easy-on-the-ear audio. It comes with the usual customization options such as betting range and audio settings. Unfortunately the reels could not be stopped automatically once they start spinning. Although it can be extremely rewarding I see it as one of those games where angels fear to tread.
The betting range is 0.01 up to 2.00. The minimum bet is $0.1 up to $20 per spin. The ‘Super Meter’ and the Gamble Feature’ add additional excitement to the game.
Keep Your Eye On The Jokers
It’s worth mentioning the ‘Super Meter’ mode. Suffice it to say this is where the big bucks lurk. During the normal game mode the joker acts as just another wild. But if it appears during the super meter mode two joker icons pays out handsomely. I’m glad to see that the multipliers come into play here. The top prize is six thousands coins when you hit 3 jokers.
Jackpot 6000 is not for the faint hearted because it takes some guts on your part to land them since it requires significant reinvestment. I find it becomes a bit of a gamble to my liking and this is where I bail out. Not that I’m chicken but to me discretion is the better part of valour.
If you wager the maximum amount of coins per line it will be foolish on your part not to use the super meter. I’d say that the game is tailored more for high rollers. If you’re not betting the max amount of coins per line the return to the player becomes ludicrous. I’m talking about 74% up to 79%. If you’re playing the maximum amount of coins the RTP (return to player) improves significantly 95% up to 98.8%.
Tip: Only play the game if you have a steady bankroll and always wager the maximum amount of coins per line.
- Super Meter Mode: Every win landed goes up in the super meter. The funds you’ve won can be used to play on where the joker symbol appears. You can either win chunk of cash or nothing. When 2 jokers appear across the reels whilst the super meter is in motion you can a few coins up to 6,000 coins.
- Gambler Game: After each win you get the opportunity to double your wins by clicking or pressing on ‘Heads’ or ‘Tails’.
My advice to you, if you’re not up for this game don’t play it. It’s not designed for timid players. It’s one of the NetEnt classics of yesteryear and appeals specifically to medium and high rollers. If you intend on playing the game for real cash don’t bother playing at the minimum bet per spin, the house edge is extremely high. Only play it at the max bet per spin since the RTP can be as high as 98%.
