Rob Steiner is a former FBI agent. He and his partner, Mario Sanchez were betrayed during a mob bust, and Rod lost his left arm. Shortly afterwards, Steiner resigned from the Bureau, and decided to use his skills to fight crime as the "One-Armed Bandit," Jackpott!

He is currently hunting down his former partner, Sanchez, who has become the sadistic mercenary known as the Cyber-Knight.

Equipment and Abilities

Steiner is a skilled fighter, marksman and investigator. It is likely that he still has some contacts within the FBI and informants throughout the underworld. As Jackpott, he carries a gun, and he is very quick on the draw. The pouches on his belt contain clips of specialized ammunition, including armor piercing rounds, explosive incendiary rounds, tranquilizer darts and rubber bullets for non-lethal attacks. So, you take your chances when you pull his lever. One attachment for his gun, allows him to fire a small grappling hook with up to 10m of steel wire. The attachment is strong enough to reel him up the wire. Jackpott's mask includes infrared lenses, a voice modulator to disguise his voice and an air filter that protects him from inhaling smoke or light weaponized gasses.


Jackpott is an "Open-Source Character" and may be used by anyone. The only rule about using him is that your work must have this notation:

"The character of Jackpott is available for use by anyone, with only one condition. This paragraph must be included in any publication involving Jackpott, in order that others may use this property as they wish. All rights reversed."
