Jackpotz is a futuristic looking fruit machine re-boot from Core Gaming. Played with a simple 3 reel, 5 payline game engine, it comes with a Mega Streak feature that awards between 4 and 20 guaranteed win free spins as well as 7 different jackpot prizes. Available on all devices, play from between 20p and £10 per spin.
The visuals in Jackpotz are impressive -the imagery is done neon style and includes a selection of classic fruit machine symbols. Winning combinations are created by landing 3 of the same symbol on 1 of the game’s 5 paylines.
The cherries, lemons and oranges award a prize equal to your total stake followed by the grapes and melons which pay double your stake. Next come the single, double and treble bar which award 4, 10 or 15 times your bet respectively. The $ is the top standard symbol – land 3 of these on a payline and you’ll pocket 20 times your stake.
Those number are dwarfed by the wild though – as well as replacing all other symbols apart from the Mega Streak, landing 3 wilds in a row will get you a payout equal to 500 times your total stake.
When the Mega Streak lands on the middle position of the centre reel, you’ll trigger the Mega Streak Bonus feature. Once active, you’ll be awarded between 4 and 20 free spins. Every 1 of these free spins is guaranteed to be a winner too!
Underneath the reels, you’ll notice a selection of 7 brightly coloured pot meters – these indicate how long since this jackpot pot last triggered. During the base game, the letters in the logo title will light up at random. When all the lights are lit, the Jackpotz Bonus feature is triggered.
Expect the red pot 1 to drop regularly and offer small jackpots. The purple pot 7 is much harder to come by but can deliver life-changing amounts of cash on the rare occasions that it hits.
Jackpotz certainly offers something a little different as far as features are concerned. The pots keep the excitement high, offering a nice combination of regular wins as well as scope for landing a potential biggie.
The imagery is nicely done and the electro soundtrack has a soothing feel – it works rather well. Combining classy design, simple gameplay and a some potentially lucrative payouts, Jackpotz offers a fresh take on the old school fruity. I also recommend you take a look at Neon Reels by iSoftBet which has a similar feel.
