For slots players who love Christmas, you will love Jingle Jackpot. There is a festive tune being pumped out from the slot game whilst you spin the reels, one that doesn’t require you to reach for that mute button. The reels of the game are set within a wooden door – maybe it’s the passage into Santa’s workshop, who knows? Surrounding the reels are brightly coloured garlands, tinsel, baubles, gifts of different shapes, colours and sizes plus lots of snow drifting around the screen.
To the left of the reels you will find varying multiplier values, these offer different features which we will explain in the next section of this review. Your paytable and betting options are hidden within the menu button to the right of the screen, this allows for uncluttered gameplay.
Father Christmas, Christmas pudding, holly, gifts and card values of 10, J, Q, K and A will be found on the reels.
Gifts of Cash
You can win some staggering amounts of cash thanks to the progressive jackpot on offer. This is randomly triggered at any time, so make sure you are aware of the reels when playing.
Aside from the progressive jackpot, you can win a maximum of 50,000. Stake maximum of 150.00 and spin in five Santa’s on your reels to trigger that cash sum.
Five of a kind of the gifts will trigger the second highest payout of 40,000 with the holly and Christmas pudding both awarding 30,000. The card values pay between 10,000 and 20,000 when playing maximum stakes.
While you won’t find any free spins on offer, there is a cracking good bonus to be triggered. The Christmas Cracker Bonus is triggered randomly at the end of any losing spin or after a progressive jackpot win. This gives players the chance to receive one of these random mystery bonuses:
- Rewind: this nudges up one or more reels to achieve a win
- Fast Forward: nudges down one or more reels to achieve a win
- Domino: a symbol will move around the reels, changing the symbols that it passes over into that same symbol. You are guaranteed a win with this feature.
- All Symbols Pay Scatter: winning combinations are paid anywhere in view, this means you don’t need to have them on a payline to receive a prize.
Extra Bet is the multiplier grid sitting to the left of the reels. Activate extra wilds to the reels by increasing your multiplier – the more you bet per spin, the more wilds on the reels. The wilds on the reels will substitute for all other symbols found within the slot game.
We loved playing the Jingle Jackpot slot machine from Mazooma, it’s very different to the other slot games that they’ve previously released. With a medium variance, wins should fall frequently on the reels. Hidden deep inside our minds, we were secretly hoping that we didn’t win during the base game, in the hope of triggering the Christmas Cracker Bonus.
There is a return to player (RTP) percentage of 96.45% with this slot game. If you’re looking for some early festive fun with big wins and exciting features, Jingle Jackpot is perfect for you.
