vinylweatherman said:The probability of hitting the jackpot id the same irrespective of the value. The expected value of playing for the jackpot under these circumstances is a different matter. Even though the expected value of a progressive can be in the players favour, the risk is very big, as the chance of being the player that actually hits it depends upon who else is trying, and the higher the jackpot, the more players will be trying.
This is a recipe for disaster unless you have a large bankroll and can afford to be in it for the very long term (several attempts at a progressive to extract the value).

I hope that one day it somehow becomes law that ALL casinos have to state the odds of hitting ALL combinations on ALL games - including slots.vinylweatherman said:Probably hard to calculate, unlike the MG 5 reel progressives, as the Jackpot is part of the bonus round, and the bonus round is undoubtedly weighted.
