Slots developer IGT has a glorious history when it comes to releasing slots with a game show theme. You need to look no further than the developer’s successful conversion of the hit 100,000 Pyramid to the slots genre and the entertaining Wheel of Fortune – Hollywood Edition slot to see evidence of this.
On the Reels…
Jeopardy! is a 5 reel, 40 payline slot based on the hit US game show of the same name that has become famous for players having to give their answers in the form of a question. The show has been running since 1964 and is still one of the most watched television game shows in the US. It is currently presented by Alex Trebek. It should be noted that IGT did release a previous incarnation of this slot but this re-release has updated the slot.
Symbols across the reels include Alex Trebek himself, the Clue Crew, and instead of the regular symbols you will see a selection of symbols relating to subject areas such as science, films, sport, music, and geography.
Watch Out for the Wild Jeopardy!
The Jeopardy! logo represents the Wild and this symbol can substitute for all other symbols, except for the Bonus Scatter symbols, to create winning combinations and earn you big pay outs across the reels. This Wild only appears on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5.
Win More with the Wild Rush
This slot comes with the exciting Wild Rush feature. This feature is triggered if you hit a Wild on the reels, it will then offer the potential for more Wilds to appear below that Wild and increase the potential of hitting winning combinations.
Earn up to 19 Free Spins with a 12x Multiplier
There is also a free spins bonus round that is great to see. This is triggered if you hit two or more Bonus Scatters on the central reel. Two Bonus Scatters will see you earn up to 11 free spins with a 6x multiplier. Three Bonus Scatters will see you win up to 13 free spins with an 11x multiplier. Four Bonus Scatters will reward you with up to 19 free spins with a 12x multiplier.
There’s Extra Wilds and Wild Reels to be Triggered!
In this free spins bonus round, you will have the chance to play the Jeopardy! board to determine how many free spins you can win. The figures listed above are the best possible free spins and multipliers you can be awarded. The more Bonus Scatters you have to trigger the free spins, the more picks you get on the board. Also, if you hit the Daily Double on the board then you will receive an extra pick to increase the number of free spins and multipliers you can win. It is also possible to trigger Extra Wild and Wild Reels features for the free spins on the board.
Jeopardy! is an American institution. If you were home ill from school or work and were left stranded on the sofa feeling sorry for yourself then this was the game show that would get you through the day. Even if it was repeats from a decade ago, it was still perfect daytime TV viewing. IGT have done a top job on re-releasing this slot. The free spins bonus round might be difficult to trigger but it is worth the pain and anguish of getting there. The Wild Rush feature will keep you going during the barren spells between hitting the free spins bonus round. An impressive release by IGT and one that will only enhance their reputation as the leading developer when it comes to game show slot conversions.
