Quoted from robm:
I would really like some more info on this as well (apart from what has already been posted). To me, its better to take the jackpot whenever its avaialable, and as you say, collect it 2 or 3 times, rather than wait simply for it to build up....unless...there is some multiplier/exponential effect from letting it build up longer.
Its easier to light 2x than to relight fire 3 times, so i would have thought getting song jackpot to 10M, and going for a 2x multipler and doing this 3 times for 60M is a 'safer' strategy than try to let the jackpot get to 30M and get 2x and collect the 60M then in one shot. Both strategies should yield the same points, however there is a greater chance of gettign the reqard with the first as you aren't waiting as long to collect a single song jackpot - so your chance of draining is less - plus if you stuff one of them up, you still have the other 2 jackpots.
Maybe its redundant for me, as i pretty much only play to try and get to the elusive encore mode!!! Have had it lit once, and choked, that was 3 or 4 years ago.
