Sometimes, developers come up with the most interesting ideas to capture our imaginations and lure us into playing their slots. Other times, like in this Habanero release, they decide it’s too much effort to bother and churn out a generic looking fruit machine. With fruits, bells and lucky sevens filling the reels, there is little to look forward to visually. The soundtrack is upbeat and fun to listen to, but only when you have a paytable up, returning to a less exciting version during regular spins.
The background image is a dark-blue colour, with an occasionally animated cube appearing and floating past the edges of the screen. The game offers players a 2-2-3-4-4 playing field with 192 ways to win, that can increase up to 1,024 ways to win through one of the bonuses. The title has a stacked spin bonus, re-spins, expanding reels and free spins.
Symbols are split into higher and lower paying icons. The most valuable are golden lucky sevens, followed by a pair of bells, watermelons, lemons, plums, and cherries as the least valuable symbol. The crown symbol is Wild and has no cash prize of its own. Instead, it is used to trigger re-spins, expanding reels and free spins. All of the regular icons are also part of the Stacked Spin special feature.
How to Play
This is a 5-reel slot with a 2-2-3-4-4 setup and the ability to become a full 5x4 playing field during one of the bonuses. It has 192 ways to win, the number of which increases as the reels expand. All the important UI elements are beneath the reels, such as the Spin button, Autoplay, bet level, coin value and max bet. Above the reels, you can find the highlighted symbols needed to trigger one of the special features. Pays are awarded in succession from the leftmost reel.
Strategy & Tips
Any winning symbol on the reels is collected for the Stacked Spin bonus. Once all icons have been activated, the special feature is triggered. A symbol is randomly chosen and five of it are placed anywhere on the playing field before the reels finish spinning.
When Crown Wild appears anywhere on the playing field, it grants a single re-spin. As long as a win happens during re-spins, another re-spin is granted. Each re-spin expands the playing field by one row, starting from the rightmost reel. Gamblers will need four consecutive re-spins to fully expand the reels and activate free spins. Successful activation grants 7 free spins. Wild sticks to the reels during re-spins and free spins, jumping to an adjacent block each turn.
Habanero has a mobile version of the slot that is identical to the desktop one. That means you can play Jump! on the go away from your PC.
