Jackpot event

I will have to say this is my least favorite event. If memory serves me, the first time we had this event, it was okay, because I did get a few decent items. But the couple of times, it is not worth spending any gold to open additional chests because drop rates of good items has become so poor. And on top of it, the last time we had this event I got 1 all gold - and that was in my alt. Bleh. Other events get me spending gold or buying extra gas. Last weekend with the combo, I used a lot of gold healing. Eventually it will lead me to buy a gold bundle to replenish the bank. Money in the bank. 5 second upgrade weekends, often I buy gas and double xp to take advantage. Money in the bank. Radio weekends, multiple gas packages. Money in the bank. I guess that NG must be making money in this week's awful event or they wouldn't keep doing it, but I just gotta believe I am not the only one that just hates this event.

    You may not like it but for many it's a really nice event.

    Even though some jackpots may end up with all rares, it at least the increase chances that will give you more supplies and xp.

    NG has been really generous with their events after 2.6 and this jackpot will for sure help many gain a little more than just playing on a regular non event day.


    I hope you the best this time around and that you score that jackpot you are hoping for!

    It would be great if after every 25 missions you were guaranteed a gold jackpot (in addition to the random ones). This way you can plan accordingly the one jackpot every hour or whatever you're guaranteed to get instead of getting it on a data beach life mission or a RSL 19 challenge mission.

    Besides of gear I still need tons of cans and XP... the only thing I really don't like is that my luck seems to be so bad that I almost never get gold and only very few silver. Oh well...

    This event has never been kind to me, never been lucky, only ever receive scrap. While other I have seen have been very lucky.

    When will we ever have the phone event again????

    You are absolutely right.
    I didn't remembered that. :)

    @Avengers You can’t hate the videos. They are working as intended. They have the weekend event info. Nothing to look into.

    This event idea is fantastic.

    The frustration is that all players notice drops are nerfed after 2-3 jackpots.

    Well at least your guildmate had a gold jackpot I haven't seen one during that weekend yet. (Playing rsl 19 - rsl25.1)

    So it can always be worse.

    I have not had a gold either, but in a past event I got the mother of all gold jackpots
    So I guess I am still using up some of the luck I got on the jackpot shown below
    Check out this one I got on a previous jackpot weekend

    Did NG stop doing the radio event? It's been months, meanwhile I've seen other events repeated many times now.
