Jackpot Express was first released over a decade ago. The game has a simple steam train theme, featuring classic pokie machine symbols and consists of one screen which displays both the reels and the paytable. Its is a straightforward game which nevertheless offers a good range of wagering options and provides a good size jackpot.
How To Play
Jackpot Express is a 3-reel game with 5 paylines, three of which run horizontally and two diagonally. Coin values range from $0.25 – $5.00 and a maximum of 5x coins can be played on any spin. In order to win the biggest jackpot you need to play the maximum number of paylines (although not the maximum coin size); this ranges from $1.25 – $25.00 per spin
Game Symbols and Paylines
- All wins are multiplied by coin size maximum $5.00

- 3x rail car symbol on payline 5 = 5000x coins (up to $25,000)

Graphics and Sounds
For players brought up on video pokies, especially those based on big franchises such as The Dark Knight, Jackpot Express may seem rather tame. There is a bright but simple colour scheme, simple animation, whilst the sound effects (which can be muted) are somewhat generic e.g. an electronic crescendo on a win, the sound of the rotating reels, etc. However those who like a pokie with a classic look will enjoy the familiarity of the Lucky 7 and Bar symbols, as well as the old-school paytable which lights up on any win.
The maximum jackpot available on Jackpot Express is $25,000, won when 3x rail car wild symbols appear on payline 5.
While Jackpot Express might now be regarded as a fairly simple game in terms of theme, visuals and sound effects, it nevertheless offers a nice sized jackpot and wild symbol and is suited to those who prefer quick gaming action without any other distractions.
