Jackpot Jewels is an online slot which has a certain back-to-basics feel about it but once you start playing the simplicity gives way to some more complex features. It’s developed by Barcrest and we’re pleased to see that it includes their proprietary ‘Hi Roller’ option for bigger bets and bigger prizes – read the full review below for more information.
Jackpot Jewels is a six reel slot with four rows and up to fifty paylines; the initial appearance is certainly basic and the design is workmanlike with very little glitz or glamour. There are some sound effects but they’re not really worth of the name.
As the title of the game might suggest the high value symbols are all jewels and they can be differentiated by colour – blue, purple, green, red and white. 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower values. All symbols are stacked on all reels and combos are made anywhere on the reels as long as there are three adjacent symbols.
The Jackpot Jewel is both the wild symbols and the scatter symbol so not only does it substitute for all other symbols, it also activates the main feature.
This feature is triggered by landing three of the Jackpot Jewel symbols anywhere on reels two, four and six. You are now awarded ten free spins on a set of reels which contains just the five high value gems.
In addition each gem starts with a multiplier value (see pic below) and this increases by 1x each time a win with those gems is formed.
The wild symbol is also active during this round and it’s possible to trigger more spins by landing that symbol three more times.
Hi Roller Option
Click the ‘Hi Roller’ button button below the reels to select this option and you are offered the chance to play five enhanced spins for a larger wager.
The extra feature you’re paying for is that any Jackpot Jewels that land will remain in place for the remainder of the five spins.
Jackpot Jewels Online Slot Playing Tips
It’s worth paying extra for the Hi Roller option because you will get the best RTP:
- Wager less than £2.00 – 94.00%
- Wager greater or equal than £2.00 – 95.00%
- Hi Roller – 96.50%
Jackpot Jewels offers more than it’s simplistic looks would suggest and we always like a stab at the Hi Roller option. It’s well worth a punt.
