|Our Rating:||4.5 / 5|
- Great theme that is excellently delivered. Granted, this isn’t the only slot that takes players into the jungle in search of riches but it’s certainly one of the best.
- Fantastic bonuses. This is the title that keeps on giving in terms of additional gameplay features.
- Perhaps the animation could be a little bit sharper. It has a distinct “PlayStation 2” quality to it.
The top jackpots on Legend of the Jaguar are all awarded for matching five-of-a-kind of the higher value symbols along one of the ways to pay. These are represented by stylised depictions of jungle creatures – with the most valuable being the mighty jaguar.
We’ve listed the prizes for each five-of-a-kind combination below:
- Jaguar = 2,500x the coin value.
- Warthog = 300x the coin value.
- Lizard = 200x the coin value.
- Bird = 100x the coin value.
- Fish = 75x the coin value.
243 Ways to Win
There are no win lines on the Legend of the Jaguar slot machine. Instead, landing three or more matching symbols in adjacent positions on consecutive reels will trigger a win.
Win Cascades and Multipliers
Winning symbols will burst, causing non-winning symbols to drop down into the empty spaces below. This can trigger additional wins.
When a win stars a cascade, the win multiplier is increased by one level and applied to the winnings of that cascade.
A cascade will end when there are no more winning combinations on the reels. This resets the multiplier to 1x.
The only symbol that does not burst after a win is the “scatter”.
When a Jaguar symbol lands on the middle reel and there is no winning combination or free games to be awarded, the Jaguar Respins bonus is triggered.
During this feature, the Jaguar symbol will transform the middle reel into an expanded locked “wild” and all the other reels will spin again.
Jaguar Respins ends when a winning combination or a Free Games bonus is awarded.
The Free Games symbol landing on reels one, three, and five simultaneously will award the Free Games bonus mode.
Players can select from three different types of Free Games – each carries the same return-to-player rating but with different variance.
The number of free games is determined at random. An animation of a casting mould is smashed to decide this. The more smashes the mould can withstand before cracking, the higher number of free games given to the player.
Below, we’ve explained the differences between the three free spin modes featured in Legend of the Jaguar.
Double Multiplier Free Games
During this feature, the win multipliers for cascade winnings are doubled up to 2x, 4x, 6x, and 10x. Players will receive between 10 and 15 free spins. This feature is a high volatility one.
Stacked “Wild” Free Games
One reel becomes full of stacked “wilds” at every Free Game round. Players will receive between six and ten free spins. This feature is a medium volatility one.
Winning Free Games
During this feature, only free spins that award either additional free spins or winning combinations will decrease the number of free spins remaining. Players are awarded between 8 and 12 Free Games, which are considered low volatility.
Players should note that landing an additional three Free Games “scatter” symbols during any type of Free Games will award additional free spins of that type.
In addition to the higher value symbols on Legend of the Jaguar, there are also those that don’t pay quite as well. These are represented by stylised depictions of the four elements, common in primitive culture. We’ve listed the prizes for each winning five-of-a-kind combination again:
- Earth or Fire = 50x the coin value.
- Water or Wind = 25x the coin value.
There are no win lines as such on Legend of the Jaguar. However, the title plays as though there were 25 in terms of the way bets are distributed. Players are only invited to adjust the amount bet on each of these supposed win lines – referred to as the “Coin Value”.
The minimum coin value is just 1p. Meanwhile, the maximum is £20. This gives the slot a lower betting limit of 25p and an upper one of a rather impressive £500. These should satisfy players of all bank roll sizes.
There is very little to dislike about Legend of the Jaguar. It’s absolutely packed with features and has a distinct, appropriate art style given its theme. The main game prizes are great, and the special features are even better. If you’re a fan of slots with loads to explore on repeat visits, we strongly recommend this one to you.
