Jazz is a popular style of music which originated from America, therefore it’s no surprise that game manufacturers are creating free pokies for players to enjoy the swinging rhythms and moods of jazz music. This style of music has evolved from African slaves who came to America mixing with the settlers from Europe, creating a style of music which was called ragtime and blues.
Later in the century they started ‘jazzing’ it up, which is where the jazz tempo began back in New Orleans. This quickly spread to other big cities in America, where jazz remains as popular today as ever, You won’t go short on listening to jazz when playing this pokies game either. There are upbeat sounds of double basses, trumpets and keyboards, to name just a few.
The reels are full of picture symbol characters either singing or playing jazz instruments. The game works by matching three, four or five icons from left to right, with the picture symbols paying out the most, up to 150x your line bet, if you match five of the jazz singer with ruby-red lips. There are also the classic playing-card features of Jack, Queen, King and Ace too.
Five also features, probably because these pokies have been created by the game manufacturer High-5! With a theoretical return to player rate of 95%, and the game being available to play on most devices, you are certainly in for a musical treat.
How to Play
Select the number of lines that you want to bet on. This can be between 25 and 178 paylines. Next, select your multiplier, which is between 1 and 1000. The higher the multiplier, the bigger your bet size, which is a maximum of $350. The minimum bet amount you can place is $0.35. There is an option to auto-play the game too for between 5 and 25 spins. When you have everything set up, click on the blue spin button on the right to start spinning.
Jazz has a fairly unique feature called wild connections. If you reveal a arrow that points right on reel 2 and a one that points left on reel 4 which line up, then the middle symbol will turn ‘wild’ along with these two arrows. This feature will give you a fantastic chance of earning some big bucks in this game, particularly when you consider the number of paylines there are!
The ‘wild’ symbols substitute for any other symbol apart from the arrows during the free games bonus rounds. Another feature of the wild icon is that you can potentially be awarded a big prize of 300x your line bet if you match all five of them. Match four and it's 100x, and three will give you 50x your line bet.
Free Games Bonus
Another symbol to keep an eye out for is the free games scatter icon, which is red and white. If it appears anywhere on lines 1, 2 or 3, then the bonus game is triggered. You will be randomly awarded either 7, 9 or 11 free spins. Great fun for any jazz fan!
