Hi , I was just wondering if anyone has much experience of the random jackpots at RTG casinos.
I guess I have been playing these slots for 5 years at least , average spin value maybe £1- £2 max , in that time ive had 2 in in total one for $1000 and one the other day for just short of $5,000 , problem is that finally having hit a decent one I cant help looking at the total and thinking I might hit again ....have you caught many of these jackpots ? Does the stake value make a difference ?
TIA

This topic has been posted dozens of times

By many members--including myself. Personally, I estimate I have Millions of spins to the tune of at least $200,000 in the hole and I have yet to hit ANY random Jackpot. If you search the Forum you will find MANY threads.

Presumably, the size of the bet does not matter--but you need to be playing all the lines. It is supposed to be completely random. I sure wish that random would run my way.

Good luck!

I think the bet size does matter. If you bet 1€ against 0,25€ you have four times better the chance of hitting the jackpot. It would be unfair for the high rollers if it wouldn't matter.

Sorry but both of these points are not true at all. The higher your bet the better your chance, but that does not mean you should go crazy and bet out of your means as they are still random and you are not guaranteed to win it even at $125 a spin. Also the amount of lines you play is irrelevant, we have seen them hit on 10 lines and less.

OP I have been playing RTG for almost 6 years and are yet to hit one with an average bet similar to yours, my advice would be to not go chasing them and spend your win on something nice.

Turn right, then right. then right again
The bet ABSOLUTELY matters.

The higher your bet, the higher your chances. You do not have to play all lines at all....I have seen players hit them on less lines.

The chances of hitting a RJ are incredibly BAD. Hitting 2 in 5 years is actually pretty good.

I believe the odds to be 1 in every $300,000 worth of bets - that's HELL of a lot of spins, even at $125 a go! :eek2:

I am also in the "Never won an RTG RJ" club... :(

I have hit a couple over the years and usually play between $2 and $6.25 per spin, have to admit to chasing them sometimes when they approach 10K but the ones I've it have been less than5K and never while chasing.

I am proud to say I hit one RJ at0.20 at Diamond Dozen 3 years ago. It paid slightly more than $1k. At Lucky Red I got a minor JP at [email protected] Worst of all was a free chip , won the JP on 3 Stooges 2, paid $3k but only walked away with $125. Just don't expect to hit anything and play as if there is no RJ.

Hit the RJ one time in my life at Jackpot Capital. Too bad that it was during a free chip. But at least i made the WR and cashed out 100 Bucks.

I hit one once for 500 ish but never again since. I don't pick games by looking at those now, chances of hitting are too slim . . .

Hasn't this topic been discussed a zillion times LOL? OP search the search engines here. This topic has been well explained, including by a well informed RTG insider.

Wow, I have hit 5 Minors and 1 Majors in the past 1.5 years and never on a bet of more than .25 - .50. Oh, wait, I take that back, the Major was $2,300 and it was on a $1.00 spin. I guess I should count myself super lucky! I too find myself always looking at them though which can be annoying!

I have won 3 times, 2 at CLUB WORLD and a big one at INTERTOPS on a .40 bet. I was surprised because I thought the bet had to be bigger

I'm not playing online these days but when I played count spectacular about 18 months ago I hit two minor randoms in the same game session. I think the casino was sloto.

In case anyone was curious, from my own testing it seemed like the jackpot contribution from a few different games I tried was about .3%, ie, $3 per $1000 wagered. Some of the games say something a long the lines that they will contribute "up to 1.5%," which is some misleading wording, as I think .3% is more accurate. It could depend on the slot or the site.

Since it looks like the average on the shared jackpots - like the city jackpots in CWC, is about $4500, and are seeded at $1000, that means in order to hit one of these "$4500" jackpots you need to wager an average of

(4500-1000)/.003=$1.16 million. Yay.

Ya it's nowhere close to 1.5%. I would love to know how it would get to 1.5% or how that's figured out.

Awesome.

Can we have the data you base this on please?

It has been confirmed here from an RTG developer that the RJ accounts for around 1.5% of TRTP...but if you know better, then let's have the evidence.

I tried checking this again a few hours ago with a simple test. I went to a slot machine with a small jackpot, for 2 reasons:

1. Probably no one else playing (and the jackpot wasn't moving at all prior to my test)
2. In case there's anything weird where the jackpot contribution is greater when the jackpot is smaller, like the recent William Hill thing.

The results:

$10 wager, one single spin.
Exit game. Re-enter game.
$0.05 increase in jackpot size.

Total of .5%, and that's assuming no one else played in the meanwhile (which is unlikely), in which case it would be lower.

It's possible that the jackpot RTP is configurable, maybe the 1.5% is the number for the "high RTP" setting. Test was done at CWC, which claims to have a 94-97% RTP, assuming that's true, puts them in the mid range.

I don't know if any casinos actually use the "high" setting for RTP. It may be true that 1.5% is the case under certain conditions, but I haven't seen any evidence that those conditions exist, while I have directly seen a much smaller contribution taking place.

This! Hopefully the great Nifty can read this post:rolleyes: Do you even play on RTG Nifty?

EDIT:

Ok back, what I was saying in my 1st post is I would love to see the evidence of the 1.5%, cause for years now the jackpots barely go up even if you hit something good or have been playing a long time on a slot. I have seen casino's use the server is slow and no doubt they will say over a certain number of spins will it actually be 1.5%, I am asking for evidence or a good explanation like others on here.

I am going by my many years playing on RTG and wondering this myself and have kept testing this issue and keeping track of jackpot totals.

Sorry to dissent but it's not that simple and your method is flawed. I'm sure someone else more articulate and well versed than me will come explain but there's a few fairly recent threads on this, including a "conspiracy" thread.

edit: Just to add when a casino is using wording such as "no more than" or "up to", it's not a simple matter of "insert your quick test" then "yay I disproved them."

I could care less how slow they move, just like people said the chances of hitting are not in your favor. I have hit 1 for 11k in 4-5 years.

I used to always get pissed that the randoms were not moving but now I don't even pay attention.

The best advice I have seen is don't play the slots for the Random Jackpots. That's is good advice
