Slots Why the progressive on the hexbreaker almost never has a high ratio to reset level ?

    That was Version #2 of the Mountain Bar. I played it a few times, but I was there when it was RF, SF, 4K Progressive. Once sat down on a $4500 SF with $450 Generic 4K and a $16,800 RF. Would it have been nice to always play at those numbers...!

    Across the street at Harah's they changed a 5-Wilds 3 meter to Job 3-meter and forgot to change the resets... That was fun.

    i realized the reason for the lower denom having a higher ratio of progressive amount vs reset. It is none of the above answers.

    It's because the high denomination moves all progressive on denomination faster..example 5x multiple moves 1x multipler at 5x the speed.

    So it is proportionate meter rise. In other words, if the amount it goes up is expressed as a percentage of the coin-in as 1%--a dollar would go up 4 times as fast, because a dollar is 4 times as much as a quarter...

    Same percentage, but slower due to less coin-in.

    Is this correct?

    There are five bet levels on the hex 3, .80, 1.60. 2.40. 3.20, 4.00.

    .80 meter starts at $113
    1.60 meter starts at $226
    2.40 meter starts at $339
    3.20 meter starts at $452
    4.00 meter starts at $565

    All meters are independent of each other. When you hit the meter one bet level it does not reset the meters on the other levels.

    All meters run at 1.5%

    I am 100% sure that when any of the denom reset all the denom get reset.I played enough to say that . I am still playing it to this day. Also please explain how the 1.5% is arrived , Example?

    I think what you meant by it does not reset is the middle reel doesn't reset but instead the progressive amount does reset.

    I think you are probably right about all bet levels resetting at the same time. I clocked the meters yesterday and the meter rate is 1.5%. That's 1.5 cents going into the meter per $1 wagered.

    I ran a $200 wager on the $1.60 level and the meter went up $3 exactly. I checked the other meters and they had all gone up exactly $3 from my play on the $1.60 level. I wasn't aware of that either.

    I think that answers the question of why you never see a very high $4 level. It's continually getting reset by play at the lower bets levels.
