Jumping Jaguar plays with 30 paylines with a $0.30 starting bet size. Not really to my liking, because for $0.30 bet per spin, I could be playing on a 243-ways-to-win game instead, so perhaps Jumping Jaguar should have stuck with just 25 paylines to be more meaningful. The black Jaguar is the Wild symbol, a non-paying symbol, argh, but doubles all wins with it and expands into a full Wild Reel too, so that should compensate a bit. Appearing on reels 1, 2, 3 and 4, the possibility of getting 4 Wild Reels in this game is there, which should produce some good wins, but only if you can get them that is. I certainly couldn't, hehehe.
The Scatter symbol is also a non-paying symbol, another argh, and getting 3, 4 or 5 of these Scatters would award 5, 10 or 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier. What? Only 5 free spins with 3 Scatters? The free spins are not even guaranteed-win spins, so getting only 5 free spins is very disappointing indeed! In fact, as I soon found out, I even got a big zero win in one of the few Free Spins games that I had manage to get, and under 10x total bet wins from the others! Rival game designers should really learn from Play'nGo games that 5 free spins are best when they are guaranteed-win spins in order to really attract the punters!
The highest paying symbol in the game pays 2000x the line bet for getting 5 of them, or 66x the total bet, which is actually not that bad, but the rest pays down to 20x line bet for the lowest symbol. Personally, I find that the non-paying Wild and Scatter symbols had spoilt the paytable, bringing it down to low, almost very low! In true reflection, the game play and pay suffers quite a lot, and I found it very hard indeed to even get a 50x total bet win from the Free Spins games. My best win, after several separate attempts, was only 62x!
What about the Wild Reels? Yes, I did get 3 Wild Reels in one of the free spins, but it paid peanuts! That's because the fourth reel didn't have any winning symbols, so all I got from the 3 Wild Reels were 3-of-a-kind wins. That's not what I would ever want with 3 Wild Reels, but that's how any game would go anyway. You need to be very lucky to reap a good win with either 3 or 4 Wild Reels, but it's not impossible to achieve nonetheless. I wish Jumping Jaguar could have been much better for me, but it didn't.
