        Hi Gang:
            As some of you might remember, I have a single one account for Microgaming that I can play at. PLatnium PLay Casino.

        I have heard it is important to watch the Jackpot meter when picking certain games you want to play.

        What exactly am I looking for on this meter, and what do I want it to look like?

        Any help is appreciated....

        What i understand from the "tip" showing what the jackpot meter is the higher number the longer time since last the slot paid the jackpot.

        Yes PMM, I too would like to know what it means. I was told when they are in the red hot zone it is supposed to be ready to blow, but I seem to do better when it is closer to the cold side  So I am confused! So please help me understand this...anyone

        Yes Slot Junkie...thats what I thought too, but I do just awful when it is in the red.

        I am so glad I am not the only one out there who wonders.

        Lets hope we get some great expereinced players and they will answer it for us.

          The jackpot meter shows the "temperature" of the slot.  i.e. the higher the temp the higher chance you have of winning the max coins.

          I was playing Deck the halls and the meter was up to about 700 which is 299 away from the top.  Whilst I was playing I kept looking back to see what the temp was and it was 991 the next time I looked (with the new tabs at microgaming you can view it without leaving your game).  I lost $50 pretty quickly.  I left the slot and put on another $30 and it was up to 999.  By the time I loaded up the game, it was back down to 80 again.  I was gutted as I knew it was due....just a shame it wasn't me.

          I try not to play the ones that are stuck on 999 like Agent Jane Blond at one site - its been like that for a couple of months and its only a 9 line slot so chances are remote.  I go for the ones that are either 400-500 or like Mad Hatters when its about 90- 94 - I've had some great wins at that temp.

          These thermometers tell you nothing, really, I mean, whats a 'jackpot' on MG games?
          Just a prize, like many others, the highest one, yes, but still just a prize.

          On games like Thunderstruck, Lady's Night, Adventure Palace the chance of hitting 5 wilds is once every 1.600.000 spins.
          So a high thermometer indicates nothing, the jackpot may be right around the corner, but it can just as wel be a million spins away, you never know.

          Its like chasing a random at RTG, oh, its on $10.500 now, should hit any moment!
          Really? It might also go all the way up to $18.000,- before it hits, who knows?

          And another thing, you don't need a jackpotspin to win big.
          Its the biggest LINEwin, but 5 scatters in free spins usually pays alot more.
          On Break da Bank Again I'd much rather hit the goldbars+wild in free spins than a jackpot in normal spins.

          I definitely seem to have better luck when the meter is in the lower half.  When it's hotter I seem to have less luck.

          i guess this is where paying attention in math class would have helped a lot.

          i take the temperature of the slot very seriously, and it helps me win all the time.

          it doesn't necessarily mean a "jackpot" is going to hit, but when a large amout of coins get distributed.  they don't in the cold zone.  

          i know one thing, the casinos take is serious also...villento is consently shutting of the temps on the weekends when the most people play.
