Jambo Cash Review
What do you imagine when you think of the African savannah? Do you think of a pretty, if sparsely populated area without many trees or foliage?
As you admire the wondrous sights, you can enjoy multiple special features and high variance. Does this title have what it takes to draw players in?
- High variance with a 13,000x jackpot
- 4096 ways to win
- Players can enjoy instant prizes, multiplying Wilds and free spins
Even in the vastness of Africa, you can find places that feel dense and packed together. Places where you have a hard time getting past all the tall bushes and massive trees.
However, when you finally get past them and can drink in the view? It all becomes worth it. Alongside the spectacular graphics, the slot has several exciting bonuses.
With instant prizes, multiplying Wilds, and free spins at your disposal, you could win 13,000x your total stake!
Theme, Graphics and Sounds
Good visuals are essential for online slots. Fortunately, Jade Rabbit Studios delivers on that front. The background image looks great even without any animations.
However, the artists clearly wanted to flex their muscles. That is why the shrubs and trees all shift and move around with the wind. It makes the game feel that much more alive, which we love.
The symbol designs draw inspiration from African cultures, further adding to the theme.
You play this release on a six-reel, four-row board with 4096 ways to win. With ways to win, you cannot toggle individual paylines to lower your wager.
Instead, winning combinations are formed by finding three or more matching icons in adjacent positions.
Winning symbols must start with the leftmost reel, or Jambo Cash will not pay out the associated cash prize.
Wilds can appear on any position on the board. They substitute for all icons except for the Scatter. When a Wild lands, it will display a multiplier ranging from one to five.
If you have multiple Wilds in one win, their multipliers are added together. This combined multiplier is then applied to the winning combination, giving you a chance to win big. Multiplying Wilds can appear during normal gameplay and free spins.
Instant prizes can appear on any position on the board. Each instant prize symbol appears with its given value written on top of it.
Instant prizes grant wins if they land adjacent to each other, starting with the leftmost reel. Your prize is the sum of all given prizes values from instant prize icons and can be increased using multiplying Wilds.
Jambo Cash Free Spins
Land three Scatters on reels one, three, and five to win the free spins round. When the bonus activates, low-value symbols are removed from the board.
More instant prize icons are added in their place, increasing the odds of winning with them. The player decides how many free spins you get and how many symbols are swapped.
Alternatively, you can choose the mystery option that sets a random value on both.
- 15 free spins with one low-value icon converted
- 10 free spins with two low-value symbols converted
- 5 free spins with three low-value icons converted
- Mystery: up to 15 free spins with up to four low-value symbols converted
You can upgrade your free spins by landing three or more Scatters while the bonus is being played.
This adds four more free spins and turns one more low-value icon into an instant prize symbol. Even if all four low-value icons are converted, you can keep receiving four more free spins.
Where To Play Jambo Cash?
RTP, bet sizes and volatility
The game has an RTP of 96.6%, which is better than the current industry average of 96%.
You can bet between $0.50 and $100 with every round.
The highest possible prize you can win is 13,000x your total stake. That said, the maximum recorded win for this release is 5,872x your wager.
Both cash prizes are pretty difficult to land, given the high volatility offered in Jambo Cash.
Yggdrasil and Jade Rabbit Studios knocked this slot out of the park. The graphics are phenomenal, especially the animations.
While the visuals may catch your eye, the gameplay is what will keep you coming back. Normal gameplay is kept interesting using multiplying Wilds and instant prizes.
However, they are just the warm-up to the real star of the show: free spins!
If you like high variance games, this one should be on your radar. We rate this release 4 out of 5 stars.
