You are totally right, I must have been super sleep deprived when I read Macs comment about it in the other thread. Woops
No matter how you slice it, even if it’s split amongst everyone currently contributing, you’ll still encounter toxic situations where people will complain that they were on the machine for 2 hours and XX player hopped on for 30 seconds and got an equal share of the win.
I think I’d rather have that than have carlos.gonzales.2007 hop on for 30 seconds just to take the whole pot.
Hopefully a safegaurd can be implemented that prevents a jackpot before at least the first 5-10 minutes of playing because that’d really suck
Other than that, this sounds promising!
Unexpected from a casino…
This is a great idea. I was kind of hoping though that they would keep “some” of the machines as-is and add a shared section.
I know a lot of people are complaining about how they spend several hours/days on a machine and someone might come along and win it in 5mins. But this isn’t a solution to that case. That same person could be sitting there for several hours/days feeding into the shared jackpot and someone could still sit down on the machine next to them and win the entire thing in the first 5-10mins of playing. People will still get upset regardless of how it’s done.
This is a solution however to people fighting over one machine and that’s why I’m looking forward to it. I like the idea of multiple machines competing to the same progressive jackpot. I do hope though that the “Progressive Jackpot” is a lot higher when it resets. Maybe have it start out at 100,000 credits. Thumbs up!
Wait so with this will the jackpot credit default be down? It starts at like 20K I believe, if it doesn’t go down people will just load up with money on this.
