Golden Jaguar slot review
If you can’t find an online slot featuring Egyptian themes and icons, chances are you’ll stumble upon one inspired by the ancient world of the Aztecs and Mayans. The lost civilizations of Central America have been ripe breeding grounds for slots developers over the years, and slot developer Cryptologic’s journey into the jungle, Golden Jaguar, is no different.
On the Reels...
Golden Jaguar is a 5-reel, 50-payline and non-progressive slot game packed with bonuses and a jackpot of $6,000. There are plenty of Aztec-style icons on the reels, with an Aztec Queen and King, statues and mystical Book and Jug, plus regular 10-through-Ace symbols.
The Jaguar is Wild
The beautiful Jaguar head is the Wild. It substitutes for all regular symbols on the reels other than the Scatter. Not only that, but if you fill every reel with Jaguars you’ll win the top game jackpot.
When a Wild symbol forms a winning combo the jaguar roars and swipes the reels with his paw in a neat little display of wild power akin to one of WMS Gaming’s Buffalo slots.
Discover the Gold Mask and Earn up to 98 Free Spins
In this game, that Bonus Scatter is the Gold Mask, and three bonus icons on Reels 1, 3, and 5 activates the bonus.
Players are awarded 7 free spins with a random multiplier attached. Free spins can be re-triggered up to 98 games.
Prey on the Stacked Wilds
While 7 free spins may seem like a bit of a meager bonus offering, the real draw in Golden Jaguar is – as the title suggests – the jaguar itself.
Stacked Wilds crop up quite regularly (even if filling 20 spots with Jaguars to trigger the biggest jackpot will probably take you a good few years).
If you’re after a few Aztec-themed online slots that are a bit more generous about their bonus rounds, check out Aztec Treasures from 3D slot developer Betsoft Gaming, while the adventure-packed Mayan Treasures from Bally Technologies, is a great game to play on your laptop or desktop.
