Three reels, fruit symbols and a Supermeter – it’s a classic from NetEnt
Jackpot 6000 from NetEnt beautifully simulates a land-based mechanical fruit machine, right down the background setting and buttons, and is one of the most popular fruit machine slots at EnergyCasino.
Unusually, Jackpot 6000 is presented as if it actually is a free-standing land-based slot machine, in a real-world casino, complete with another machine in the background. Keeping with the classic concept, NetEnt have given Jackpot 6000 a simple format of just three reels, three rows and five paylines. However, the game does boast a Supermeter, and also a ‘heads or tails’ gamble game. Again, these are presented as part of the actual machine, as they would be on an old land-based machine.
In keeping with the real-world theme, you can select from just two coin values, either a 0.10 or 0.20, and they are visualised as real coins, at the lower right of the screen. You can select the bet level, by cycling through them using the ‘bet’ button. The bet information is displayed in a classic LCD digital format, on the front of the simulated machine.
Despite its relatively simple format, Jackpot 6000 basically offers three games in one. In the base game, it is only possible to win on the 1st payline, and then gamble it on the ‘head or tail’ coin game. Next, you can transfer winnings (using the ‘transfer’ button) to the Supermeter. A Supermeter games use all five paylines, and this also enables you to land jokers and win a random jackpot of between 10 and 6000 – hence the game’s name. The reels of Jackpot 6000 feature traditional fruit machine symbols: stars (worth 100), bells (worth 80), grapes (worth 60), lemons (worth 20) and cherries (worth 20), plus the Joker.
A highly enjoyable, authentic mechanical slot machine simulator
Graphically, Jackpot 6000 is detailed and nicely presented. The background is authentically detailed, complete with another machine, beige wood panelled walls, a deep red and gold patterned carpet, chandeliers and even a plant. The machine itself is depicted in great detail, with realistic buttons, reels and displays. A very nice touch is the way that the lights flash underneath the simulated front of the machine, giving a frantic glow – just like on real-world machines. This is typical of the kind of attention to detail that makes NetEnt products, like Jackpot 600, stand out among the crowd. As you would expect, the sound effects in Jackpot 6000 simulate those of a land-based fruit machine, with high tempo electric sounds, to go with the flashing lights. The reels have a very authentic mechanical clunky sound to them.
If you are looking for a game that will bring back memories of playing fruit machines in your local pub or bar, or maybe a trip to a Las Vegas casino, then Jackpot 6000 is the ideal slot for you. It takes retro online gaming to a level beyond what has been seen before – being more of a genuine mechanical slot simulation than a normal video slot. As such, it is sure to remain one of the most popular fruit themed games at EnergyCasino.
