Play Jeopardy! FOR FREE
This 5-reel 40-payline slot is inspired by the internationally popular game show of the same name. It has 4 rows and stacked symbols, thus you have more chances of grabbing an award. Based on the said quiz competition, the slot offers a themed bonus feature that resembles the real-life game board divided into six categories that show the dollar values for each correct answer. Jeopardy! is the slot for those who like risk and can stake everything without fear of losing. The most prominent part of the slot is a lucrative Wild Rush feature that duplicates one wild symbol onto other positions thus adding the opportunities for winning it big. Mobile device users can play the slot on a mobile browser.
Jeopardy! debuted over 50 years ago with over 8000 episodes aired in the United States. It has dozens of local adaptations spawning all across the globe, even in Arabic countries. In Canada, there was a French-language version of the show running at the beginning of the 90’s. The TV show gained popularity because of an unusual format in which the clues are presented in the form of answers and the participants must reply in the form of questions. IGT made use of the immense popularity of the game show and released the reviewed slot, which preserved the original feel and authentic graphical elements of the Jeopardy! TV show.
The slot is based on a 5×4 layout with 20 symbols displayed at a time. To get a regular win, which involves no special symbols (except for wilds), the player needs to see at least three matching symbols on a payline, beginning from the utmost left reel.
Symbols, bets and payouts
The package of symbols has direct association with the original Jeopardy! game. They include five low-valued icons depicting game categories such as Geography, Music, Sports, Films and Science. Awards for these pics vary between x5 and x150 for five of a kind. There are also four high-valued symbols that represent the show hosts such as Alex Trebek. The maximum prize that Host symbols may award you is x2000.
On each spin, the player has to place 60 coins (40 coins per each of the 40 paylines plus a 20-coin side bet). A coin value is adjusted in the range between $1 and $50, thus a total bet can be anywhere between $60 and $3000 per spin. Now you can easily calculate top three regular payouts; these are $100,000, $40,000 and $25,000. Should you play at the lowest permitted stake, you can win the maximum of $2000.
Increasing your win opportunities are stacked symbols. Each individual picture, whether category icons or hosts, can occupy more than one position. When the reels stop after spinning a little, you can see two, three or even more identical images on any separate reel. This feature definitely contributes to winning combinations, especially if the identical stacks are created on reels 1 and 2 simultaneously.
Wild Rush feature
The wild symbol in the slot presents a real-life logo of the TV game. When you see Jeopardy! on any reel, you may begin celebrating because the wild greatly enhances the chances of landing one or more wilds below it. As a result, wilds may cover the entire reel down the initial wild. Jeopardy! acts as a normal wild meaning they replace for any other regular symbol and help them form winning combinations. The only place where they cannot appear is the first reel.
A bonus feature is triggered by 2 or more bonus symbols on the central reel. On a new screen, you will see the Jeopardy! game board that contestants face at the studio the game is recorded. The board has five columns, with five values on each (25 in all). Each column provides some benefits that the player will use during free spins that follow. You initially have three picks and you must start from the first column to collect a related prize:
- Column 1: Awards a certain number of free spins
- Column 2: Grants a multiplier to be active for all free spin winnings
- Column 3: Awards extra free spins or an additional multiplier.
If you pick a Daily Double symbol, you unlock the next column in order and are granted one more pick:
- Column 4: The symbol revealed in this column will be determined as an extra wild symbol to appear on reels 2–5 during free spins.
- Column 5: The value (1 to 5) that reveals as a result of your pick will determine which reel will be entirely wild during free spins.
Overall, the maximum possible prize depends on how many Bonus symbols have activated the above feature:
- 2 bonus symbols: 11 free games or a multiplier of x6
- 3 bonus symbols: 13 free games or a multiplier of x11
- 4 bonus symbols: 19 free games or a multiplier of 12.
Free spins have the same paytable as base game.
