Jammin’ Jars is a slot from Push Gaming who are going for a share into the high volatility market. This game has a simple theme of Jam, yes you heard it … JAM. Get some Jam Jars together and this can go huge!
The slot is very basic in its mechanics and uses a cluster pays system where 25 or more symbols hit the top value, needing a minimum of 5 symbols for a win. The symbols are strawberries, oranges, raspberries, apples, plums and blueberries. The playing grid is 8 rows and 8 columns and can contain 64 symbols. All of this has been seen before, however…
The interesting twist with this game is the Jam Jars which are considered as wilds in the game. Every time the jar becomes part of a win it increases its value as a multiplier, so first win will make it change from x1 to x2 next win x2 to x3 and so on. If you get a win all the symbols disappear except the jar (if it was part of it) and the jar moves to a new space and new symbols drop down. This sequence will keep going until no win or a bonus is triggered.
You will need 3 jars on the grid for it to trigger free spins which is always six. During these 6 free spins all the jars will keep the multiplier throughout the whole of these spins. If two jars are part of a win then it multiplies the win by both values, if your lucky to have more than 2 it will multiply by each jar leading to some insane combos.
Finally, there is a random feature called Rainbow which will animate over the whole screen and will add one or more giant fruit symbols, this feature will not happen during free spins however.
What to look for
This game is having a very basic concept and that is to increase the jar multipliers as much as possible. This is normally done by having them very close to each other, so they can keep hitting wins. If you’re lucky enough to have this, it can potentially pay 1000x and more.
There isn’t too much to say about the free spins apart from the closer your jars are the better. If you can get extra ones it can help to keep triggering the wins which is the main aim of the game. Be warned this is a highly volatile game and you need a strong balance to play unless you get very lucky of course!!!
Push Gaming has added some decent high volatile slot with some very basic themes and this is most surely one of their best. It has strong potential on the win with some crazy 1000x to 10000x hits possible. At the time of writing this, there has been a lot of talk about this slot and the fact that some bonuses seem to be identical. This has split the slot community on what or how a bonus should work and for us it depends on how you look at RNG and what it does. This has put a lot of people off as they don’t like the way it’s not pure random. It has created a very healthy debate on what random is and its hard for any provider to come out and explain exactly how these processes work which is understandable.
Taking that to one side, if you like simple and mega volatile slots then this is going to be a winner for you. It has all those aspects to the max and this can make a slot with a lot of dead spins which some may find boring. The slot design is solid and a good addition to this theme is the way the jars work which gets it lots of extra points. This will please a lot of fans of Push Gaming while pushing some design but not massively. Push Gaming are becoming a powerhouse of volatile slots now and this will be played lots even with the comments about the bonus.
