Jammin’ Jars 2: We Know You’ll Like Jammin’, Two
Emotions run high whenever there’s a sequel. The expectancy of more of something that’s already adored (otherwise why make another one?), the dread of disappointment that it won’t be as good as the first one. That was how fans of Jammin’ Jars 2 felt the day it was released. Over at Game provider Push Gaming, they inevitably found themselves mouthing the immortal words of Bob Marley, we hope you like jammin’, two.
The music reference is more than a bad pun, though, because the jars here not only contain jam, but they also do some jammin’ in this retro disco-themed slot that features a DJ jar, golden records, and much more.
At Casumo, we like to celebrate our most popular games, our crowd-pleasers, our fan favourites. Whether a golden oldie or a brand newie, as long as it’s a game that our players love as much as we do, we’ll include it in this Popular Games series. Today we’re not only covering a sequel, but this post is also a sequel, in that we also wrote about the original Jammin’ Jars game earlier in the series.
Jammin’ Jars 2 Features
What’s new in Jammin’ Jars 2?
Trick #1 for a successful sequel? Don’t change too much. After all, sequels only exist because the first one was great. So, fans of Jammin’ Jars will be happy to find a lot of the same great features as in the original. Jammin Jars was an instant classic, a much-needed citrus twist on the old favourite fruit slots. That said, this new version takes things up a notch, more than doubling the max win for a whoppin’ 50,000x.
Jammin Jars’ features include Wild Jars that stick around after a cascading win and keep dancing around the 8×8 grid. If these dance their way to another win, a multiplier gets added. Both Jammin’ Jars games feature cluster pays, by the way. Any five matching symbols touching on the grid make for a win.
Fruit Blasts add colossal symbols to the fruity mix, and the Instant Prize symbols do just that: award prizes instantly. There are bonus spins with increasing multipliers and, if you collect enough of those golden records mentioned above, you’ll trigger the Giga Jar feature for even more bonus spins.
Giga Jar and the Collectible Gold Vinyl Records
Giga Jar is the name of the cool but approachable DJ jar that keeps the beats coming from the left of the grid. Each time one of the Collectible Golden Vinyl symbols lands, it shoots off the grid and onto the Giga Jar meter. After 20 golden records fill the first meter, you go up to Level 2. This is good news, because Level 2 has a higher RTP (Return to Player) rate, as does each consecutive level:
Level 1 – 96.1% RTP 20 records needed to reach level 2
Level 2 – 96.2% RTP 25 more records needed to reach level 3
Level 3 – 96.3% RTP 30 more ecords needed to reach level 4
Level 4 – 96.4% RTP 35 more records needed to reach level 5
Level 5 – 96.6% RTP Now possible to trigger the Giga Jar feature
The Giga Jar feature can only be triggered once Level 6 has been reached. If this happens, all the symbols will clear off the grid, and a few Wild Jars will shoot out of Giga Jar and onto the grid. These will be sticky throughout the feature, just like in the rest of the game. Then Giga Jar gets into the action, jumping onto the grid in the form of a 2×2, 3×3 or 4×4 prize block.
The only symbols that spin during this feature are Instant Prize symbols, and if you can land a cluster of five or more during the round of eight Giga Jar spins, you’ll pocket the value.
