The original live Jeopardy slots by IGT are now online thanks to their online branch, Wagerworks. The game has five reels and only nine paylines, but compensates for its few paylines by allowing players to bet five coins per line for a max bet of 45 coins. Betting denominations range from $.05 to $5 making the most expensive per spin wager at a Jeopardy slots casino an impressive $225. That’s an amount any high roller is going to be excited about and it means you can really enjoy the game even if you have very deep pockets, which isn’t something that’s always possible with the other slots.
The Jeopardy online slots offer decent symbol variety and a cohesive color scheme, and the multi-colored Jeopardy symbols cleverly replace the usual bars, double bars and triple bars. Yet the sophisticated Jeopardy bars and flashy animated wilds clash with the dated and cartoony category icons (animals, movies, music, science, sports). Speaking of the wilds, five on any Jeopardy slot machine awards the top jackpot of 25,000 coins. Even better, just one wild will double any other combination (a la Double Jeopardy).
Jeopardy was created by IGT to match the very popular quiz show in America and the online slot machine combines various elements for an action-packed gameplay perfect for fans. As expected, the action takes place on the stage and it shows five reels that have three rows of symbols and nine paylines tops. The buttons for 1 Per Line, 2 Per Line, and so on represent the number of coins which can be placed for every selected payline and players can click on the one they prefer to set the bet of up to five coins. The size of the bet will be shown on the 'Play' button.
While we're disappointed to report that the Jeopardy slots have no scatters and no free spins, the two-part bonus is pretty nice. Three Jeopardy bonus symbols on an active payline triggers the traditional bonus. A game screen with categories and questions loads, and players choose questions/prizes until they hit a Final Jeopardy symbol. On this game, the Final Jeopardy symbol sends you into the second part of the bonus where backing the right contestant can greatly increase your current winnings.
While we're sure the Jeopardy online slots will please high rollers with the max bet of $225, we're also pleased to inform our more cash-strapped readers that even players betting a single credit and line per spin can win the jackpot. Players that are looking for an extra thrill can also enjoy the double or nothing gamble feature which is offered at all the Jeopardy slots casinos.
If you’re a fan of the game show you will really enjoy playing the Jeopardy slot machine. It’s a real fun option for gamblers and it sticks closely to the theme of the game show. Test it out for yourself and you’ll see how the different bonuses keep things interesting. Sure there aren’t massive jackpots like some of the progressive jackpot slots, but there are still plenty of quality prizes for you to look forward to, and that’s not always available on a truly fun slot machine.
Virgin Casino is a great place to enjoy the Jeopardy slot machine and many other popular Wagerworks games. We rate this fun game a reasonably good 8.5 out of 10.
The Double Jeopardy symbol is a 2x wild that will substitute and double the award. Three of these symbols along with two symbols of Jeopardy on a payline at max bet will pay the player a jackpot of 25,000 times the line bet.
