So How Do We Play?
Well, gameplay is pretty simple and standard to what one may expect from a slot game. The player is expected to get 3 or more identical symbols in a payline. The player must choose how many paylines they would like to play and the bet per line. The symbols ranged from fruit symbols, to red pills, to the JADAK symbol. The wild symbol is an icon of a man whilst the bonus symbols are symbols of blue pills, a bulldog, and beer. The scatter symbol was a cigar (possibly marijuana). Now, that’s interesting.
We Felt Something Was Missing
We did feel that we needed more information about certain parts of this game. Sure, the gameplay is pretty standard; the player chooses how much they want to bet and then they press the spin button. However, there is a lot more going on, on screen. On the right-hand side, we saw a chart, which we later found out was a chart to determine which bonus game the player gets to play for free when landing bonus symbols.
We thought the most logical thing to do was go to the Instructions option in the menu and try to get a gist of the extra features. This sounds all well and fine but unfortunately, we did not understand anything from the Instructions, since nothing was explained. All the player sees are a splatter of images on a screen and this isn’t very helpful.
We Love the Bonus Games!
We fell in love with the bonus games. The player can receive a bonus game by landing either 2 bulldogs, 3 beers or 3 magic pills, five times! Every time a match is made, it is marked in the chart on the right-hand side. There are three bonus games depending on which line of markings you managed to land.
The bulldog gives the player a racing game where the player is told to choose which character they expect to run the fastest. If the character you chose runs to the beer first, you get a prize. The beer gives the player a display of stacked boxes, starting from the bottom, the player must choose the highest paying box. The last bonus game, and seemingly the most difficult to land, is the matching cards games. The player must reveal cards and if they manage to get three of the same card, the player receives a prize. All sound pretty fun, right?
What Didn’t We Like?
Well, we have to admit, although this was a lot of fun to play, it did frustrate us quite a bit. We were bored waiting for the game to tell us what our winnings were per spin. The more paylines you choose, the longer you will have to wait because the game goes through every individual payline which landed the player a win. We ended up playing with the lowest number of paylines possible; 1. Maybe, that’s what the game wants us to do.
As we mentioned before, we also did not like the instructions screen. We did not feel that this provided us with enough information to understand the extra features of the game and how to achieve the bonus games. We learned these things through gameplay, experience and trial and error. Personally, we would’ve preferred learning these things from the instructions.
If We Have to Compare…
If we have to compare we would mention Fortune Jump by Playtech. This fun game is also a 5×4 reel online slot game that we can play online for free or for free money. In both games, no download is needed. We found wild symbols, scatter symbols and bonus games in both games. Unfortunately, Fortune Jump did not offer free spins, as this free Jacob’s Biks slot did.
Will We Play Again?
We did enjoy our experience with this game when playing with a low number of paylines so we will definitely be interested in playing again. Our favourite part of this free Jacob’s Biks slot game was the bonus games. We thought they were unique and a lot of fun. We kept on playing, hoping to get more and more chances at the bonus games. They are addictive!
