When you talk about WMS’s Jackpot Block Party many people automatically reference the original Jackpot Party slot in the series or the most popular game on the land casino floor – Super Jackpot Party. The 70’s disco theme definitely has a solid fan following and whilst the other games in the series have their own unique playstyle it’s this version which is the most popular for players of online slots. With an easy to follow 5x3 grid that lends itself to mobile play more than the huge screen in the Super game, it isn’t hard to see why.
The 5x3 reel set has up to 30 adjustable pay-lines in play. The RTP of just over 96% is very generous for a WMS game but does assume you are playing all lines, it diminishes if you are not. The starting bet is just 0.01 credit per line so realistically this being a penny slot, there’s no reason not to play the whole screen. It has to be said that one of the draws of the Jackpot Block Party slot is the fact that the whole game, visually and audibly, is bespoke. Even big WMS games like Zeus 1000 have playing card icons and some familiar generic sound effects mixed into the game – this doesn’t.
The pay-table always reflects your current bet which makes it easy to follow. The biggest reward is the wild which, in addition to replacing all other symbols has a x1000 reward for 5 on a pay-line. All the symbols are valuable for full combinations with even the most basic birthday cake symbol granting 125x your line bet. Beware though, that’s 1.25 credits on min bet – so only 4x your overall stake. The big rewards then, are hidden elsewhere on this slot, which with three features on offer, isn’t hard to suss out.
Whilst the features are technically unique, in reality they often follow on from each other in a combination series. It’s when this happens that the biggest rewards occur. You don’t get free games as such but pick wins on four different party themed boards. Generally, you will hit the most basic round with a combination of the three scatters rather than all three matching, but, there are hidden symbols which can open up the other rounds. On top of that there is a secondary big credit prize which can be won from the bonus feature too. Many instant win games are bland and boring with the exception of classics like IGT’s Wheel of Fortune. The one on Jackpot Block party is impressive in scale and often in pay-outs too.
Jackpot Block Party is a WMS game which is certain to be popular for a long time to come. The theme is generic enough to keep a wide variety of players happy and it’s an entertaining game either live or online. Where it really shines is the pay-out potential, the combined feature rounds may not hit that often but when they do there are some serious cash rewards waiting on this slot.
