Jaguar Moon House review
Released in 2018 by Novomatic, Jaguar Moon slots takes you on an adventurous journey through dark jungles where you need to find the ancient temple that holds treasures galore!
To help you on your journey, Novomatic has filled this game with 243 ways to win, big multipliers, crazy scatters and Wilds and tons of Free Spins! So, before you enter this jungle challenge, why don’t you find out a bit more about it?
Jaguar Moon is a 5-reel, 50-payline slot machine that offers some decently high wins. To begin playing this game, you need to first make your bets. You can do so by clicking on the ‘+’ and ‘-’ buttons on the Total Bet tab. All paylines are activated in this game, so you don’t need to click on that option.
The RTP in this game is relatively low at 95% and has a medium variance. This means that getting big wins is going to be a challenge. You will, however, manage to land some decent sized wins on occasion. Small wins will be relatively frequent.
With such statistics, it is best to play the long game in Jaguar Moon. This means that you keep your bets low so that you can play more spins. Then, when you get some big wins, you have the option of increasing your bet.
Therefore, do set your bets accordingly. Once you have done so, click on the Spin button to begin. If you don’t want to keep spinning every round, then you can use the Autoplay option to set a number of spins so that you can sit back and enjoy the gameplay.
To win at this game, you need to land 3 identical symbols across 3 consecutive reels starting from left to right. There are low-value and high-value symbols, so the amount you win will depend on the types of symbols you land. The low-value symbols are 9, 10, J, K, Q and A. The 9, 10 and J have the same value (5 of a kind will win 200 coins), while the Q, K and A are of one value (5 of a kind will win 250 coins).
The high-value symbols are 2 Golden Rings, an Amulet of a Jaguar paw, a Gold Jaguar, and the Mystery Woman. The Wild is the Jaguar and it substitutes for all other symbols except the Scatter.
Additional Game Features
Here are the additional game features that make this game worth playing:
- Free Spins
To activate the Free Spins mode, you need to land at least 3 Scatters (Bonus Symbol) on the reels.
- 3 Bonus Symbols will give you 8 Free Games with all your wins being multiplied by 2x.
- If you land 2 Bonus Symbols on the first reel and then another 2 on any of the other reels (so, 4 Bonus Symbols), you will be awarded 12 Free Games with all your wins being multiplied by 3x.
- If you land 2 Bonus Symbols on 2 separate reels as well as another 1 on the subsequent reel (so, 5 Bonus Symbols), then you will be awarded 15 Free Games and all your wins will be multiplied by 4x.
- If you land 6 Bonus Symbols on the reels, you will be awarded 20 Free Games as well as a 5x multiplier for all the Free Spins rounds.
When you’re looking at a 5x multiplier, you can actually win as much as 2,500 your base bet, which is what makes this game so super attractive!
If you land a Wild on the reels, it will substitute all other symbols except for the Scatter. This will increase your chances of winning at this game.
To really get the big wins in Jaguar Moon, you need to activate the Free Spins mode. That’s when the multipliers kick in and your money wins increase significantly.
The game design is pretty, with the reelscape set within a golden frame. In the background, you can see a lush, green rainforest. The sounds in the game, however, are a little disappointing and the music isn’t as exciting as you would expect for a game like this.
When you win the Free Games, a golden box/cupboard rises from the bottom of the screen and shows you the number of Free Spins you have won. The music changes during the Bonus round and it is definitely more in line with the theme; the tempo is more upbeat and exciting! Animations also are activated during the bonus rounds.
The symbols are decently designed, but definitely not the best that we have seen. The overall game design is good, but not stunningly so.
Novomatic has created a great-looking game in Jaguar Moon. However, considering the kinds of games that are being released today – games that have high-definition graphics, stunning animations and are full of additional game features, Jaguar Moon doesn’t really live up to standards.
And since the RTP of this game isn’t too high, players may get frustrated with the long wits between wins. Because Jaguar Moon’s RTP is on the lower side, players may get frustrated with the long waits between wins. Having said that, the multipliers in the Bonus games definitely help with getting you bigger wins and the biggest wins are mouth-wateringly huge! A 2,500x win is nothing to walk away from, after all!
Overall, we would say that this is a game that you can give a try, but don’t expect fast wins. You need to be patient before you can land those really big wins. But a player rating of 8.2 says that there are more than enough people who have enjoyed playing Jaguar Moon.
