Morning all,

Just a quick survey/opinion poll.

The progressive Party Feature at JPP.

Now I have been playing there since late December. I am sure I am giving them at least £250 a month.

My normal play is between 30-60p a spin with the occasional 90p+ if the balance permits.

Now in this whole time I have only had the JPP Feature once, on my first play there when I had a 12 hour play.

What are peoples thoughts?

Your chances are all geared up to bet size. I have played sessions at £6 a spin where I have had it 2 or 3 times in an evening and sometimes not at all. But at £6 a spin, I am betting 20x as much as someone at 30p per spin and am therefore 20 more times likely to hit it. Irrespective of your bet size, the RTP of the slot remains the same (around 92%) and the progressive contribution remains the same (2.99%).

Cheers Simmo,

I would like to think that I would still have seen a bit of that 3% that contributes to the feature. When I see people have clocked up 150+ stars, they must be max betting all night every night.

Because the RTP of the base games is so slow thats what puts me off the higher stakes. Dont get me wrong, I have had £500+ wins on Black Night and Ruby Slippers from 60p spins, but it really seems to be all or nothing at JPP. It seems tough to get a double/triple your money and walk position out of it.

I would love to play £6 a spin with the monthly match bonus so starting with £200 but I would instantly fear the worst on those slots as much as I love some of them, not much room for a drubbing.

think i had it 4 times in a few months, but thats playing too much and losing too much too, bets ranging minimum up to £3 and had it trigger at either range of those :) - self excluded myself for 6 months and occasionally play the same games at unibet minus the progressives, and the extra rtp in the base games, still they can eat a balance :)

if you look at some of the videos they have up on youtube you will see that even £6 per spin is modest compared to some of the players there, £50 spins on wizard of oz for example...

I got it today at £3.00 a spin

The other day I converted my loyalty points £5 and got it at £0.30 p a spin. Got the second level too :)

I have gone for months without getting it too

I like the thrill when you get it but the lower RTO on base game gets a bit wearisome

I really like slots where you might get a surprise at the end of the spin... You know like Mega Moolah and that Egg one. The one where it lays an egg and gives you 50p. Golden Goose, that's it. I think I'd enjoy Jackpot Party.

So is it essentially any game that lets you hit the same progressive? A bit like the 'Party Time' slots in UK Arcades?

On any slot you can trigger it - the higher you bet the better chance you have of getting it - same as Mega Moolah . Once you are in it doesn't matter how much your bet was you stand same chance of hitting the big one :)

Think I'm right in saying that you can trigger it on any game, not just slots.

A fella got it off a roulette spin while I was on there and was going bananas about it on chat.

I've had it about 12 times on lots of different stakes over a year and a half or so. About half the time I picked collect on the very first pick. Seriously. :laugh:

I had two stars one and one star probably 3 times. I've also gone months without it. I just don't think about it any more and focus on the game I'm playing instead. I actually don't like the progressive that much because the noise scares the HELL out of me and I hardly ever find stars. I just pick really quickly now to try and get it over with as quickly as possible.:nod:

The chances of hitting it are so small unless you bet really big.

good luck!

Progressives have to be a matter of personal taste.
My rule for progressives is that I have to enjoy the base game and feel I have a reasonable chance of a base game payout irrespective of the possibility of a jackpot

I find I'll play the progressives on William Hill Vegas because the base game frequently throws out nice hits, and if I'm in a retro mood the rapid fire jackpot slots on Intercasino

Haven't touched an MGS progressive since 2008 (though I play plenty of their other games) and can't be doing with Jackpot party at all

CHRIST ALMIGHTY! How do I turn that chat window off!??!?

For F***s sake! STOP TALKING AT ME!???

Is there a way I can make it go away?

Ta.

Ask the chathost for some 'lucky dust' and then if that doesn't work, 'beg for Glinda' and count to 3, and the chat window disappears.:D

I can't deal with that. Seriously? There's no way to get rid of it? That's a MASSIVE oversight IMHO.

I can't ignore it. I could for a bit, but if I saw someone asking for lucky dust or complaining about the gambling pixie not fluttering over their monitor - I wouldn't be able to contain myself. Which would almost certainly culminate in me being banned at the very least, and possibly Police involvement.

I can't believe a site would inflict that on people.

do players actually ask for the lucky dust? I would laugh myself silly if I saw that happen :lolup:

You would be amazed at the rubbish they spout and they talk to the "host" if there is one there like the host can control who wins etc.

@ Slotster try advice Patriot gave !Hopefully that will work ;)

I psml at the ones who say they are leaving , not coming back , etc yawn yawn cos they never win . Next day there they are again lol!

Another way of getting rid of chat is to just go into Privacy Mode, you'll keep the win feed and be able to see the progressives, but won't be able to see chat at all :)

Personally I leave it turned on most of the time, just for the giggles.
