    Does anyone know how the jackpot meter on the BG works?

    This table has two VPX versions, what is everyone using?

    Jackpot

    Shooting the right ramp 3 times before the timer expires will award the current jackpot, which is displayed in lights, to the left of the mystery wheel on the backglass. After you get the jackpot, it resets to 500k. After you run out of credits, it will add 1 million to the jackpot, if you got it.

    After you score a jackpot, the "Millions" digit in your score will flash, unless of course, your score is under a million, in which case, it will begin flashing when there is a digit there .. :-) I believe this is also true if you get the "Million" shot on the Comet ramp.

    The jackpot increases 5k for each time you hit one of the 1-2-3 rollover switches at the top of the playfield.

    After you get the jackpot, (or get it lit, and let the timer run out) you will need to re-light the Cyclone ramp. Hit the 3 duck targets, just above the right outlane. There is no maximum on the number of jackpots you can get per game, however, it resets back to 500k after you get the jackpot.

    I tried hitting the 1,2,3 and they did nothing, maybe the BG doesn't work, I am not sure what version I have, but I'll try the other.

    The backglass goes up in steps of 500k, the rulesheet I linked says the lanes increase it by only 5k. I imagine you need to hit the lanes a lot (like 100 times) before it's reflected on the backglass.

    Trap up and look at the current jackpot in the status report. Then hit the lanes, trap up again and compare.

    You hittin* the right ramp?
    The jackpot is on the right ramp, not the middle ramp.
