Quoted from LesManley:
It's risk vs. reward. Gear 6 doesn't guarantee a 50 million (or 100 million super jackpot) and trying for Gear 6 doesn't mean you will automatically get it. You can get very big scores even without that super jackpot.
I Like the risk of going for 6th gear but feel the Super Shouldnt be made available so fast. Hope they make it where maybe you need to drop all 5 drops then maybe spell out something in the bowl. Collecting the super is way too easy as the code is right now.
