Enjoy a tasty slice of 1950s Americana in Jukepot, a 5 reel, 3 row, 243 ways to win slot from Saber Interactive. Set in a classic US diner, this retro flavoured slot comes with stacked wilds, lock and spin reels and a free spins feature. Playable across all devices, you can tuck in from between 25p and £50 per spin.
Set against a classic American diner backdrop, the reels in Jukepot are positioned inside a jukebox – symbols on show include neon style playing card values, an electric guitar, motorcycle and convertible car. They’re joined by male and female characters looking not a million miles from Danny and Sandy from Grease.
The record symbol is the wild, substituting for everything with the exception of the scatter – the wild can appear as a stacked symbol, filling up the row or rows in which it appears.
Jukepot is a 243 ways to win slot so winning combinations are formed when the same symbol lands on successive reels. There are plenty of opportunities for this to happen courtesy of the lock and spin feature. This can hit at random during the base game and will offer the same symbols on 2, 3, 4 or even 5 adjacent reels.
Then there are the Hot Rodded Stacked Wilds – during the base game, a Hot Rod may burn its way across the reels, leaving in its trail a series of wilds. A second payout will be made with the extra wilds in place.
Land 3 or more Jukepot scatters and you’ll trigger the Twist and Shout Locked Reels Free Games feature. Once activated, you’ll be awarded 10 free spins. Each of these free spins will include a locked reel spin where at least 2 adjacent reels will feature identical symbols – the dancing duo will reveal which reels have been chosen. You can re-trigger more free spins here, in chunks of 5, if you land 3 or more scatters during the feature.
Graphically, Jukepot is pretty simple – it does conjure up the feel of America though, helped by a soundtrack that’s part rock and roll and part country. It’s nice to look at and easy to play so no complaints there.
The variance seems to be on the low side of medium with regular smaller wins on offer rather than anything too spectacular. That said, if you manage to get a good mix of symbols on the locked reels, then some impressive payouts are certainly possible.
If you like classic Americana, you’ll find plenty to like here. Even if the closest you’ve got to proper US diner is watching an episode of Happy Days, there’s just enough on offer in the features department to make Jukepot worth a visit. Hopefully you’ll be hearing plenty about Saber Interactive in the future as they’ve developed online games such as Halo. When it comes to slots, they developed the iconic Pharaoh’s Fortune for IGT!
