Aprogressive 6-Spot

Jan 14, 2008 4:13 AM

Here is a good example of a 6-spot progressive that would be very playable. This is a $3 6-spot, with initial pay outs of $3 for 3/6, $12 for 4/6, $198 for 5/6, and $6,250 for 6/6. On a $3 6-spot, each $230 or so added to the jackpot reduces the house percentage by 1 percent. This ticket would be a decent play even at the reset value of $6,250, but it quickly becomes very attractive.

Any time the increment reaches $1,800 or so (anytime the total jackpot reaches $8,100) I would rate this ticket a definite play. It would not be unusual for this jackpot to reach eight or ten grand, and in computer simulations I ran it went over $14,000 several times. At $14,000, the player is playing keno at a mathematical advantage, and that’s hard for Keno Lil to pass up!

Below you will see a nice 10-spot ticket, marked with one group of 4 and three groups of 2, that makes a 4-way-6. This is an admirable ticket, kind of a 6-spot version of the old and reliable 4-way-9! Enjoy!
