Push Gaming is pushing the envelope once again, and this time it’s through a slot machine that relies on colorful fruits and cluster pays. A high volatility title, Jammin Jars is the type of game where you either win big, or you don’t get much at all.
The game area in Jammin Jars has 8x8 reels and there will be combinations formed through the Cluster Pays system. Part of its appeal, its high volatility, comes thanks to the Rainbow Feature or the Sticky Wild Jars with the increasing multipliers. Payout wise, before the multipliers get a chance to kick in there are wins of up to 100x the bet delivered.
Betting and Prizes
You get to select a wager for your spins, without mattering much how much the individual lines are receiving. The paytable tells you exactly how much you can win, based on the bet you picked. As for the actual range, it’s between $0.20 and $100.
The jackpot, delivered for a combination of 25 or more Strawberry symbols, gives you 100x the bet, so it’s up to $10,000 cash. Keep the multipliers of the wilds in mind, they can improve that top reward considerably.
The RTP of 96.8% tells us that we can get big wins in this slot, since most of the time you don’t win all that much. It’s an above average percentage for a slot machine, so that’s one point in the game’s favor.
Jammin Jars Slot Features
The Cluster Pays system that’s used in Jammin Jars is not exactly unique for this industry, but it’s not a common one either. More slot machines appear to be using it lately, which adds variety to the market, and that’s a good thing.
Once a cluster is formed, a collapse will happen, and the winning symbols get removed, while new ones land in the empty positions. Several rounds of new wins can come in this way, without you having to pay for additional spins.
The rainbow-colored Jar is one of the stars of the show. This is your wild feature, which you use to replace any other type of symbol. It will contribute to new cluster wins. Once it does that, it moves to an adjacent position right before the next Collapse has a chance to occur. The Jars are not removed during the following collapse. You will also find that a multiplier is applied by each Jam Jar icon. After each contribution to a new win, the Jam Jar’s multiplier goes up by 1x.
A Rainbow feature is randomly occurring and it can trigger after a cascade with no win in it. Giant Fruits are added to the game area then.
The free spins appear to offer the highest potential once again, same as in most slots that use them. 3+ Jam Jar icons give you 6 free spins. You start off with 3 sticky wilds, but you can get additional ones after that. Multipliers don’t reset after losing spins. It’s a big potential kind of feature, so the ultimate target in the game is to get to the free spins and hope for as high multipliers as possible from the wilds.
Theme & Design
Jammin Jars is a fruit themed game, just with the jam jar angle added to it. The graphics are modern, and the 8x8 game area certainly looks different compared with most fruit slots. The Jam Jar is the one that stands out, as the feature, while the regulars give you blueberries, plums, apples, raspberries, oranges and strawberries.
Jammin Jars isn’t necessarily a fun game to play, high volatility slots don’t really give you that much entertainment along the way. However, it has big potential and if you get one of its jackpots then you will have more fun out of it than you can handle.
