Legend of the Jaguar gives us a chance to find long lost treasures in South American temples, and it’s Playtech that created this particular slot machine. It’s not the most original theme ever, but there are a lot of other unique elements in it which I’m sure you can enjoy if you try it out.
At its core, it will be a slot that has 243 ways to win, with 5 reels spinning underneath. The game pays reasonably well, with payouts of $250,000 possible and with a 95.92% RTP calculated for it. The long list of features consists of cascading reels, rising win multipliers, Jaguar Respins with guaranteed prizes, free spins with stacked wilds, Winning free spins and others which have multipliers.
Betting and Prizes
Because the game needs 25 coins for every single round that you go through, you’re getting the option to only pick the coin’s value. The option is placed at the middle of the bottom row, and it can be taken from $0.01 to $20. Depending on the selected coin value, the range of the bet is $0.25 to $500.
A payout in Legend of the Jaguar can be an impressive sight. You might not think of it when you see that you can win 2,500 coins from a combo, but the slot does have 10x multipliers that it can apply, along with denominations of up to $20. Those 25,000 coins could mean $500,000 cash. With that in mind, you should take a look at the theoretical RTP as well, which is considered only average at 95.92%.
Legend of the Jaguar Slot Features
The first thing that you’re probably going to notice will be the multipliers from the left side of the screen, going from x1 to x5. These go up when you have win cascades during a single round. Each new wave of symbols coming in to replace the previous wins will come with a better multiplier.
Regular wild symbols, sporting the image of a Gold Idol, will be available in the game and will be replacements for most symbols.
The scatters, with other idols and with a Free Games logo, will trigger their own feature by appearing on the 1st, 3rd and 5th reels. There will be three types of free spins for you, with the same RTP but with a different volatility. Some might prefer the 10-15 spins with high volatility and 2x multipliers (taking the cascade multiplier to 10x), others will want 6-10 spins with medium volatility and stacked wilds, while the third option will deliver 8 to 12 rounds which have low volatility and guaranteed wins.
The Jaguar symbol, which most of the time you’re going to try and use to form the highest-paying combinations of the game, will also be the ones to trigger Jaguar Respins when appearing on reel 3 if there are no features or wins triggered that round. The 3rd reel is an expanded wild for the duration of the respins, which finish when you get a win or the free spins from them.
Theme & Design
The adventure seekers out there will enjoy this game and the long-lost temple inspired graphics. It looks like it was taken straight out of some Indiana Jones movie. Its design quality is pretty good as well, and its symbols revolve around gold idols and representations of jaguars, boars, lizards, birds or fish, along with drawings for nature, fire, water and wind.
Playtech did an awesome job with the entertainment factor in Legend of the Jaguar, and in the end it’s not a slot that you’re going to be easily bored with.
