JuJu Jack Slot from Amaya
Head to any online casino and you’ll generally find a good variety of horror themed slots and JuJu Jack is another to add to the list. However, where you’ll find gravestones, monsters such as Dracula or Frankenstein or Halloween style pumpkins on the reels of most of these games, at JuJu Jack none of these appear, as the slot is specifically about Voodoo dolls.
On the reels you’ll find a rather menacing skeletal looking witch-doctor, his staff, a drum, a spell book, scattered bones and a crocodile, while the Voodoo Doll itself, with button eyes and pins sticking out of it is perhaps the most eye catching symbol of all.
How to Win on JuJu Jack
There are a number of features at this Amaya designed slot which will see those big wins come your way.
Many wins on this slot will come your way via the wild symbol. This features a strange green skinned character who sits behind a drum and only appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. As the wild it will substitute for any other symbol on the reels apart from the scatter. However, there is a huge added bonus with the wild in that it is an expanding one, expanding to take up the entire reel whenever it lands, promising many more additional wins than any standard wild.
During gameplay you’ll also find the Voodoo re-spin feature. This is a randomly triggered feature on reels 2, 3 or 4, where any or all of these reels can be bewitched by Jack, meaning they will spin again, potentially generating more wins.
JuJu Jack Slot Break Out Bonus Game
The highlight of the slot is certainly the main bonus feature which is activated by landing the Voodoo doll symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4. You’ll now be taken to a separate screen, which first shows you the outside of a house while a spooky laugh is in the air, before heading inside to find the Voodoo doll laying down on a table. All around the doll are objects which are used to torture the doll and you’ll pick a total of 5, each of which will see the doll react. Each pick will see you either given an immediate credit prize or see you given a number of free spins. The end of the round will see the credit prizes totaled up and then the free spins will begin. This is an excellent feature which is a good combination of a pick me round and a free spins feature.
Of course, this isn’t the only way to win at the slot, as you’ll obviously win in the standard way at the base game. JuJu Jack, the witch doctor, is the highest paying symbol of all, worth 2,000 coins when hitting the maximum 5 in a row, while a stone slab underneath the moonlight pays 1,000 coins. One particularly good aspect of the slot is the fact that there are no ‘filler’ playing card symbols; each symbol is relevant to the theme.
Design and Setup
The background to the reels shows a slightly eerie night time scene, a snake wrapped around one of the trees in the picture while a full moon pierces the sky. The symbols on the reels have a particularly distinctive neon look in purples and greens, this really standing out against the black background. Each of the symbols is drawn well, while the animation is good too, although I’m not too sure the chicken is best pleased about the fact that his head keeps popping off! The accompanying sound to the slot is perhaps a little too upbeat at times, but it does keep you entertained and give the game some additional atmosphere.
Like the majority of online slots, JuJu Jack is a 5 reel game with three symbols showing on each of the reels. There are a total of 25 pay lines, but you do have the option of playing any number between 1 and 25. The coin value ranges from just 10c per line all the way through to $10 per line, ensuring the slot is suitable for players at all bankroll levels. The best option at the slot is the auto play, where you can set the slot to play for up to 99 spins, while also adding rules to the auto play using the ‘advanced’ option.
With so many horror themed slots out there, it can be difficult for a game to stand out, but Juju Jack certainly makes an impact. The impressive and eye catching visuals of the slot certainly get you onside immediately, while the nice range of bonus features only add to the experience. The best of these is the Voodoo doll bonus round, which is an excellent feature throughout.
