I find myself always drawn towards games that have a high risk/reward and have potential for giant jackpots. I love seeing my score explode by cashing in that huge jackpot. For whatever reason these games just grab my attention a lot more then games with steady scoring and crazy deep mode play. I appreciate deep games and own a few but they get played a lot less then games with huge jackpot potential. I own a few of these games but would like to add a few more to the collection. What other games have huge jackpots that are hard to get but oh so rewarding when you do.

WH2O insanity falls multi ball with 5 times the fun going and vacation jackpot
CFTBL super jackpot at the snack bar
MET crank it up, great risk/reward
ACDC Song Jackpot (This is a game that I really need to buy, should have bought one a year ago when they were for sale everywhere)

Demolition Man has a pretty good jackpot lit after completing all four of the normal multiballs. The payout is based on the number of jackpots you hit during the game.

(# Fortress jackpots + 1) * 15M + (# Museum jackpots + 1) * 20M + (# Wasteland jackpots + 1) * 25M + (# Cryoprison jackpots + 1) * 30M = Demolition Jackpot.

According to the rule sheet, even if you miss all the jackpots, you still get 90 million.

ACDC song jackpots can get huge and are certainly a risk reward.

As good as I've gotten with the cannon, hitting a huge jackpot is always nerve wracking and one of my favorite moments in all of pinball.

The 100M Roadshow jackpots. High risk stdms as you've gotta hit the bulldozer 11x to build it up. By the time you get it up to the max, you're on edge and making it to Red is a little harder to do (at least for me it is).

Gilligan's Island

DW is a good one. To get a huge jackpot requires decent progression through the multiball layers AND multitasking the side ramp shot to keep the playfield multiplier high at the same time.

JP also has a pretty deep multiball where the super jackpot is worth a mint, and it is multiplied by how many of the six balls are still in play. I owned mine for a year and I only once managed to score it.

And another one that is probably a lot lesser-known is Dr Dude's Double Jackpot. After you drain out of a multiball you get a 2x playfield multiplier lit for the remainder of the ball. If you can manage to work your way into another multiball in the same ball then the jackpot will be a Double Jackpot. I'm lucky to score a jackpot in a single game! Let alone scoring a jackpot in a second multiball *all in the same ball*. So I've only seen it once

I was in an event last weekend and my opponent had 3x going with a 52m song jackpot. He hit the center drop dead center and was rejected, on a ~150m shot. The host was right there and was shocked because that rarely happens on his. The one in town here does that a lot more often, but it's still pretty rare. He still won, but I happened to be standing there and we both had the same reaction because we had time to see how big the jackpot was before he took the shot.

W?D. Think of all the skill it takes to get 2 billion points from roulette, it can be a bigger payday than even Bride of Pinbot!

I still get a rush getting the 100m super jackpot in redline mania in Getaway.
