Brand new from Genesis Gaming is this winter sports-themed online slot which actually lets you take part in the craziest activity of all, the ski jump. Coincidentally the game is also called Ski Jump and it features several bonus features as well as the aforementioned death leap so keep reading to find out more.
Ski Jump is a five reel slot with three rows and just fixed ten paylines; it has a chilly, metallic atmosphere and through the transparent reels we can just see the top of a ski run and mountains in the distance. When you first load up the game you will be prompted to select a national flag and this nationality will be used throughout your session.
All the symbols are related to the theme and include ski flags, goggles, ski boots, skis, a helmet, flowers, a medal and gold and silver trophies. Winning combos can be made from left to right and right to left in this game.
The orange ‘Wild’ badge represents the wild and appears only on reels two, three and four. The cowbell is the scatter symbol which activates the main features.
Landing two or more of the cowbells anywhere in view will trigger this feature; those reels will be frozen in place and the remaining reels will spin again – payouts will be made after this respin.
Ski Jump Feature
If the scatter re-spin is triggered by three or more cowbells you will also get to play the ski jump game. You will taken to a screen showing a jumper at the top of a slope and you will get two jumps to try and wins one money.
As the skier moves down the slope you must click the mouse or press the space bar when the circular meter fills up, this happens twice per run – on take-off and landing. The closer you get to the full circle, the more you win.
Ski Jump Wild
Randomly on any spin, two ski jumpers may leap onto reels two, three and four, turning those positions wild. Two landing on the same position will double any wins on that payline.
Ski Jump Online Slot Playing Tips
The Ski Jump feature seems to get triggered fairly regularly so you should be able to get plenty of practise playing the game ands stopping the meter in the right place. It’s not too hard when you get the hang of it but keep your eye on the meter and not the jumper.
This is a high quality slot with a good understanding of it’s theme; there are lots of features and lots of opportunities to win. A decent RTP of 96.04 means this is well worth checking out.
