Ooh yeah! That’s smooth! Is there anybody on this planet that does not like jazz? I have to ask myself that question when I hear the sound of a sax as I’m sipping a glass of single malt scotch… and then I wake up!
Now, a jazz club might have a bit of a stereotyped rep as being the place you go to (along with a strip club) when you’re down and out or having just broken up with your wife but if you are susceptible to a bit of the blues then this slot could be right up your street. If you have ever been to a jazz club before in your life (at an age when you could appreciate it and not when you were 17 years old because it was the only club that let you in without ID) then you will immediately be familiar with the tone set by this slot.
Across the Reels…
This 5 reel, 25-payline slot from developer Playtech is everything a music fan could want from a jazz-themed slot. The sounds, the atmosphere and the general vibe created by the developer ensure an enjoyable and relaxed slots experience.
The icons on the reels do nothing to change the stereotypes many people hold of jazz clubs.
In fact, the jazz playing band members look like they could have jumped straight out of the New Orleans-set hit US television series Treme. There is also the single malt scotch on the rocks and a musical note which appear on the reels.
Jazz Just Got Wild!
The Wild symbol in this slot is represented by the microphone. This symbol substitutes for all other symbols across the reels except for the Scatters to help you complete winning combinations.
Win up to 14 Free Spins in the Jazz Solo Bonus
The Jazz Club logo is the slot’s Scatter symbol and it is key to triggering the Jazz Solo Bonus where you can win free spins.
If you hit three or more Jazz Club logo Scatters across the reels then you will be given the chance to choose either 14 free spins with no multiplier, 10 free spins with a 2x multiplier or seven free spins with a 4x multiplier.
This slot kind of stands alone in its theme. I can’t think of any other jazz-themed slot games that are really worth talking about.
If you’re generally a fan of musical-themed slots then you might want to check out King of Bling by Incredible Technologies… but that might not be one for the jazz fans! There is also the popular Kiss slot from WMS Gaming and the IGT Elvis: A Little More Action slot that will appeal to fans of those artists.
As for this game itself, it doesn’t pretend to be anything it isn’t and its honesty and simplicity is something that allowed me to warm to this slot.
