The game board for Jaguar Super Ways starts off as a 3×5 reel grid with 243 paylines. However, due to the slot’s features, this can expand to reach a massive 9×9 reel field with a whopping 387,420,489 paylines, making this a MegaWays slot. Since there are so many ways to win, the bet range is more limited to even things out. The smallest amount you can wager is 0.40, while the maximum is 10. Although the cap might be a bit lower, when combined with the max payout of 22,457x your bet, it makes for a substantial 224,570 jackpot. The game itself can be a bit on the risky side, as it does have a Return to Player (RTP) of 94.26%. This is lower than the standard of 96% and up. However, the volatility is specified as medium, so at least you have that.
There are 6 low-value symbols and 4 high-value ones for a total of 10 pay symbols. The former are represented by playing card symbols from 9 to A, while the latter are shaped like green gemstones, frogs, snakes, and vultures. There are also 2 premium symbols, namely the Wild and the Scatter. The first of these depicts a jaguar and can be used to replace any pay symbol and complete a matching set. Meanwhile, the Scatter is represented by a temple and serve to trigger the Free Spins feature, as you would expect.
The first thing you will notice when playing Jaguar Super Ways is that the slot features cascading reels. When you match sets of symbols, they will explode, and those above them will fall down, making way for additional ones to tumble down. This can have the effect of chain reactions occurring as new matches form by themselves, increasing your wins per spin. This can happen up to 15 times per single spin.
However, that’s not all. The initial game board of 3×5 reels can expand in size to reach an impressive 9×9 grid. This is accomplished through the paw print mark that can appear randomly on symbols. If a marked symbol is part of a matching combo, it will create an enlarged paw print mega symbol which takes up a 3×3 field. If this takes place at the edges of the game board, it will knock out the frame and open up new slots for symbols to fall into. This can continue to happen until the board reaches its maximum size and becomes framed by a darker border.
The only symbol that the paw print will not remove are the Scatters. These will instead fall to the bottom and build up in case a chain reaction is occurring. Once it ends, the number of Scatters you have collected will be tallied, with 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 ones granting 7, 10, 12, 15, 18, and 20 Free Spins, respectively. In this mode, you will be taken to a board that starts off as a 4×5 reel grid, which will allow you more opportunities right out of the gate.
The Bottom Line
Jaguar Super Ways seems to be a very exciting and fast-paced slot that promises large payouts for those who dare brave the treacherous jungle. With its ever-expanding grid and cascading reels, it will have you glued to your screen as you try to land that big chain reaction that will net you the jackpot. Up to 10 free spins are also up for grabs, as chaining matches awards more than cash prizes. However, this is not for the faint of heart, as the RTP is lower than usual, and the stakes can be high.
We are eager to find out more about this title from Yggdrasil as we approach the release date of May 20th.
