Ever fancied going on safari and checking out a Jaguar in its natural habitat? Well, you needn’t bother booking a trip to a different country, because Rival Gaming has created the Jumping Jaguar slot which recreates that very thing. The question is, does it do it well enough? On the whole the game is quite the experience, and it features some appealing photo style graphics to ensure that you’re visually stimulated alongside enjoying the gameplay.
Jumping Jaguar occurs on a layout of five reels and three rows, so it should look familiar to players who frequent online video slots. Rival has given you a total of 30 pay lines to bet on too, although you have the opportunity of customising these if you want to. You’re also able to customise your bet, by first choosing a specific coin value between 1p and 25p, then selecting between one and ten coins to be in play per active line, meaning you’ll be able to place a bet of up to £75 per spin.
The background depicts the jungle that you’re traveling through to locate the jaguars. Meanwhile, upon the reels of the game, you’ll see its symbols. The first of these are present in the shape of a tree frog, a sloth, and a pink tropical flower. The parrot comes next, offering maximum rewards of 80x your bet. Then there’s the snake, the toucan, and the red tropical flower. The ant is also present as a symbol, followed by another tropical fruit and a lizard. The passionfruit comes next, then the monkey and finally, the eagle.
Whenever you spot a black shadow you’d better be wary, that’s the jaguar, and it’s likely to strike you down in a heartbeat. Luckily, in this slot it operates as the game’s wild symbol. This means that it will stand in for other symbols on the reels, helping you with the formation of wins.
Not only that, but it will provide a double multiplier to your win should it participate in such. The fun doesn’t end there either, because the wild will also expand across the reel that it’s on if it is able to create additional winning combinations. The expanding wild is only able to appear on reels one, two, three and four during both base gameplay and free spins.
Jumping Jaguar utilises a golden statue head of a jaguar for its free spins scatter symbol. This one is able to activate the free spins round whenever three or more of them come into view anywhere.
You’ll be on the receiving end of five free spins whenever three show up and 10 free spins if four appear. You’ll get the maximum of 15 free spins with the appearance of five golden jaguar heads. During the free spins feature, any winning combination that you form will also benefit from a 3x multiplier.
The Hunt Super Round – While the aforementioned free spins round is in effect, if you manage to spin three or more of the silver jaguar head symbol into view you can also trigger the Super Round Spins. You’ll be given five of these to play through, and during this feature you’ll only see the seven animal symbols appear on the reels. All of those will also operate as Drop Icons.
So, what is a Drop Icon? Well, whenever you form a win of three or more symbols in the Super Round Spins, those symbols will disappear from the reels and leave spaces for new ones to fall into. You can then potentially form additional wins from the new symbols appearing.
We have to admit that we’re fans of the Jumping Jaguar slot game. It’s got everything you could possibly want in an online slot, from amazing graphics through to intriguing base gameplay and exciting special features. The Super Round Spins make the basic free spins even more epic, and with expanding wild symbols there’s little to dislike about the Jumping Jaguar game.
