Winning combinations and symbols
After a successful spin, a winning pattern of 3, 4 or 5 identical symbols lands along an active line from left to right. The win for a combination depends on the size of the current bet. The Live Jazz slot machine includes 9 regular symbols:
- The poster earns you the smallest winnings. For a combination of 3, 4 or 5 pictures of this kind, you will earn multipliers of 5, 10 or 20
- A glass with a drink has the multipliers of 5, 15 and 30
- A bucket with shrimps — 10, 15 and 30
- An entrance to the bar — 10, 20 and 50
- A lantern with a sign — 10, 30 and 60
- A trumpet — 15, 35 and 70
- A treble clef — 30, 50 and 80
- A musician with double bass — 30, 60 and 90
- A singer with microphone — 40, 75 and 100
- The signboard with the Live Jazz words earns you the multipliers of 50, 100 and 200 for a combo of 3, 4 and 5 identical symbols. So, this is the highest-paying picture. In addition, the Live Jazz signboard represents the Wild symbol, which completes winning combinations of other symbols
- The image with notes on the moon background is the Scatter. It is not associated with paylines. If 3, 4 or 5 of these pictures are found in the boxes of the reel, you will get 5, 25 or 75 times your total bet. Three or more Scatter symbols in any positions of the game window launch free spins
The bonus round of the Live Jazz slot machine
The bonus round in the one-armed bandit is activated after landing 3, 4 or 5 Scatter symbols. The round consists of the following stages:
- The choice of one of three bars. This way, you will determine the number of free spins from 5 to 25
- The selection of one of the musical instruments (piano, drums, guitar or trumpet), which hide from 2 to 5 additional Wild symbols
- The activation of the corresponding number of free spins. In the free spins round, additional Wild symbols, which you have won in the round where you chose a musical instrument, will appear on the reels
The repeated landing of Scatter symbols on the screen will enable you to extend the round with free spins.
To run one of the variants of the risk game, you have to collect a winning combination. After that, two buttons will appear on the panel:
- Double Up launches the risk game with the possibility to double the wins
- Triple Up activates the risk round with a chance to triple the winnings
In the round for doubling, you have to point at one of four bar signboards. A multiplier is hidden under two of the pictures. If you open the right one, your winnings will be doubled. If you select an image without a multiplier, you will lose all your previous prizes for the spin and this round.
In the Triple Up risk game, you need to choose one of three pictures with signboards. In this round, the win is hidden only under one image. If you point at the image with a multiplier, the amount of your prize will be tripled. But the wrong choice of the picture will nullify your win.
In both varieties of the risk games, there are 8 stages. But to go through each of them, you must not make a mistake, that is, you shouldn't select images without multipliers.
The risk games are not available in the auto spins mode.
So, the Live Jazz slot features two types of risk games. But the best way to increase the number of credits in your balance is to launch free spins with additional Wild symbols.
