To begin with, as its name says, the theme of this slot is based on competition in ski jumping during Winter Games; before you start the game, you must choose which country you are going to represent in this competition, then you choose your bet level and the fun begins right there.
The layout of the grid of this video slot is 5 reels and 3 rows, the number of lines to bet is 10, and bet levels of the game are between $0.10 and $5 per line, so it is best to play it with a good amount of credits that allow constantly rising and decreasing your bet without worries, in fact, I think here's the trick of this slot to get good profit from it.
There are other features that make this a more interesting game; the first is that the game is set up to pay for combinations made in both directions from left to right and right to left, which makes the base game a totally dynamic process.
Then we have “Ski Jump Wild” feature that is randomly activated and by which 2 Ski jumpers can land anywhere on reels 2, 3 and 4 to turn ordinary symbols into wilds, and if both land on the same place, this specific wild additionally includes a multiplier X2. This feature has seemed cool to me since with it I have managed to get several big wins when these wilds have helped me to complete combinations of up to 5 of a kind with some of the highest paid symbols of the game.
The most exciting round is “Ski Jump Feature” and it is basically for three reasons in my view:
- Normally we can activate with excellent regularity this feature because we only need 3 scatters to do it, but if you get 2 scatters, then they are frozen the reels where they are on and a respin is granted to us in order to give us one chance more to get one or more additional scatters to lead us to activate this feature.
- Payouts stipulated on the paytable for 4 or more scatters is pretty decent in my opinion.
- During the jump, the player must press the space bar or click using the mouse during both the time of the jump and the landing, and our reward depends on how well we do it; I think this skillfulness required makes “Ski Jump Feature” a very interactive round and hence more fun.
Honestly, I think “Ski Jump” is one of the best games manufactured by “Genesis Gaming Inc.” which have passed through my hands, and I think it is a game that you simply cannot miss.
