Jackpot Gagnant Pokie Review
Gameplay: dynamic and pleasing simplicity
Thrills and wins are only 2 steps away. First, one touches the Choose Coin button to select a coin size that comes from $0.01 to $1.00. A Bet button sets a wager: 1, 2, 4, 6, 8 or 10 coins per spin. There are 5 paylines, 3 horizontal and 2 diagonal, so the maximum wager in a base round is 10 credits per spin or in money terms up to $10.00. A click on Spin triggers the reels with the hypnotizing sounds of a well-oiled, impeccably balanced machine. You can also get right to the point by clicking the Max Bet button triggering the spin at the maximum 10-coin bet.
Pokie symbols: regular payables and a special star
There are good old icons: Cherries, Lemons, Grapes, Bells and blue-and-yellow Stars. Wins range from 20 to 100 coins or up to $100 in money terms. Wins are paid out for 3 matching symbols on any active payline. This pokie – to the utmost happiness of gamblers – allows up to 5 winning paylines in one spin. By keeping all paylines active on every spin, you do maximize your payouts. There is a colorful and flashing display above the reels showing a paytable to keep an Aussie aware of his winning chances.
There is a special star of the pokie, Her Majesty Lady Luck. She pays it queenly, the payout depends on a bet and stretches from 400 coins at a 2-coin bet up to 10,000 coins at 10-coin bet. Therefore Lady Luck does the magic: she wins up to $10,000 at the maximum bet of $10. To win that prize, you should land 3 Ladies on any active payline. This goal is better attained with all paylines engaged at a 10-coin wager.
Mystery Credits feature
Again, this feature has striking similarity to the same in Jackpot 2000, yet it brings a greater joy to a gambler. To start a Magic Credit round, you should first earn a win in base spin. This win becomes a bet in a Mystery Coins round after you have clicked the Transfer control. The credits go to a separate screen marked as Supermeter. Mystery Rounds follow a bit different rules. First of all, the bet is twice as high at 20 coins. Secondly, Lady Luck is the main character of this game – it is she who makes these round mysterious. It is so because she pays out a random amount ranging from 40 to – hold on to your seat! – 10,000 coins, or up to $10,000 money-wise.
To do the trick, you should score only 2 Ladies on any active payline and they do pay. Not to forget the old goodies: all payable symbols in Mystery Credit rounds also earn and pay out 20 to 100 coins. Payouts earned in Mystery Rounds are piled on the Supermeter screen. This mysterious mode keeps going until there is a sufficient number of coins on the Supermeter (no less than 20) or until you take the win. The win is grabbed with a Collect button. There is a thing to remember: a coin value is not adjustable during a Mystery Credit mode so you should set it appropriately in a base mode.
Big plus: a gamble feature
Wins in base rounds may be doubled as many times as one feels like doing due to a simple but profitable gamble feature, a cross or pile game. A win activates two special buttons, Lady Luck and Cockerel, they start flashing along with golden coins above them, so it is hard to miss this opportunity. By clicking on Lady Luck or Cockerel, one makes his choice, golden coins start feverishly flashing and excitement jumps through the roof! A correct guess doubles the win and the next try is granted.
No limits are put on the number of tries except for your will and luck. As soon as one feels like having had it enough, it is necessary to click on Collect, take the win and proceed to the base mode. Clicking the Spin control after a win in a gamble feature transfer the prize to the Supermeter screen.
The next click on Spin starts a Mystery Credits round as described above. If you are not up to playing the Mystery Credits round, you should click Collect: it adds the win to the balance and the gameplay returns to a base mode. A gamble option is unavailable after winning in a Mystery Credits mode. Still, you may do the following arrangement: bet 10 coins and win 60, then gamble 60 to 120 and press Spin to send 120 coins to the Supermeter. Thus an initial 10-coin bet generates 6 Mystery Credits spins, each at a 20-coin bet, along with a lifetime chance of winning up to $10,000. It looks like an exciting development of a base spin at a 10-coin bet.
Bottom line on Jackpot Gagnant
This 3-reel 5-payline game by Betsoft is a video slot that earns appreciation for outstanding opportunities. There are two ways to win up to $10,000, including the chance to score that much for 2 symbols only. Smooth and dynamic gameplay with regular wins and a gamble feature make Jackpot Gagnant a thrilling way of having a good time even without the second screen bonus rounds and other 3D tricks typical of Betsoft.
