It’s not something that Habanero has gotten its players used to, but in Jump they’re going with a classic theme, one which relies on 7s and fruits for its symbols. On the other hand, there is nothing classic about the 5 reels and the ways to win system employed, or about the way the number of symbols changes from one column to the next.
You start off with 5 reels, which have 2-2-3-4-4 symbols to offer, and with 192 ways to win. You can get up to 1024 ways to win and to 4 symbols for all 5 reels though, so the game’s potential can make a significant jump as you play. It’s also a latest slot machine with awesome RTP, of 98.13%, capable of offering as much as 500x per line, or $100,000.
Betting and Prizes
Jump can pay a lot of money, but it all depends on the wagers that you’re willing to place each round. For example, the slot uses 25 to 250 coins to activate all those ways to win, while the coin denomination appears to have a range of $0.01 to $20. That gives you bets of just $0.25 if you want to test the game, but you can also wager $5,000 if that’s the kind of budget that you’re working with.
The highest paying combinations offer 500x the line bet, so that’s not the impressive part. With big enough bets, you could be looking at up to $100,000 per combo. The fact that you get up to 1024 ways to win, turns that 500x reward into a prize worth playing for.
If the payouts didn’t convince you, perhaps the RTP will. Habanero announced an awesome 98.13% Return to Player in this case, one of the highest you will find for a slot machine.
Jump Slot Features
The Joker Hat is your wild symbol in this case. Having it appear on the reels will allow it to be a substitute for all other types of symbols. It doesn’t even matter where on the reel it lands, since the ways to win system takes it into account anyway. There is a downside as well unfortunately, the fact that the game may use it only in a single position on the screen, during the base game. Basically, you can’t get more than one wild per paid spin.
The Joker Hat wild will give you a re-spin, when it appears in the base game. If a win comes to you, then another re-spin triggers. The rows will expand in size, and after 5 re-spins you get them all to have 4 symbols. At that point, you have 7 free spins from the game. The wild is locked for the re-spins and free spins, but you can’t get any other symbols of this type.
Stacked Spins are the ones that will provide you with the most potential in this game. Any winning symbol present on the screen will activate the empty position from the top. You need to form winning combinations with all regular symbols, so that you can activate all those empty locations. Once you have them all active, you are going to trigger the Stacked Spin during the next round, that much is guaranteed.
Once you trigger it, you will get five symbols of a single type (not the wild though), to appear anywhere in view before the reels end their spin.
Theme & Design
It’s a classic theme, so it doesn’t offer you a lot in this area. You will get Joker Hats, 7s, bells, watermelon, lemons, plums or cherries, and that’s it. The quality is decent, but not at the usual Habanero level.
It’s a good game, and theme aside it has a lot to offer its players. The RTP and the high potential both recommend it.
