You friend is talking about must hit jackpot which reset on the first spin after the jackpot is awarded and are a predetermined amount once the previous one is hit/ I haven't seen that exact year version of outback jack but to the best of my recollection it is not a must hit so your friends theory would not be valid -

Mission- I think that should clarify what he is asking for you




Perhaps I should have started a new thread on Outback Jack, or been more clear in what I am asking.

Is the game beatable by playing it at a certain level of progressive jackpot (major)? What would anyone guess would be a sufficient jackpot to have positive EV on a "loose" setting? Is anyone beating the game regularly? Thanks.

If anyone is beating it they most likely won't say. ....... I have however seen the major quite high 2800-3500

You might be barking up the wrong tree going after that machine

Ok. Thanks for your opinion. You may be right. But I figure ANYTHING with a progressive has to be positive at SOME point.

One more question, maybe someone has an opinion on this. There's really not much in the way of strategy, except I wonder if anyone has a strong opinion on how to play the "Gold Mine" bonus. There is strategic option involved in that.

Thanks,

What makes you think there is a strategic option-
You are talking about the bonus where you select on the top screen and it goes right left or straight and selects extra spins or a multiplier ?
Maybe I'm just not following


On the other not- sure almost any progressive goes positive at some point just like lions share at mgm- it depends on what the cycle is though whether it's worth it

I know a casino right now where a dealt Royal has a 140k over lay - cycle is 600k plus hands so 600 hours plus cycle - run two cycles behind and you are at 1800 hours- Game get Zero ap play

No, I mean the Gold Mine bonus. Jack walks through with his pick, chips away at rock and uncovers a gem, twice, and then you have an option of leaving and not risking a cave-in, or looking for another gem but risking a cave-in, in which your booty would be cut in half.

We seem to be having a small disconnect,. But thanks anyway.

No big deal. Just wondering if anyone had their own thoughts on the Gold Mine bonus. Obviously if he picks two rusty bottle caps then you choose "dig". But what if it's a little more complicated? Just looking for other peoples' thoughts on the game, that's all. Any thoughts.

And my gut still tells me it's a beatable game. Maybe it's just gas.

Beatable in what way? Like straight up no mail? No promotions?

I thought I was pretty clear in my original post. But maybe it's my fault. Thanks for your input, I'll just move on for now and return when I have another question. I've read some pretty good stuff on this forum from some smart people, so I'll keep reading. It's a good forum, with some helpful advice. I should have joined a lot earlier.

thanks,
