Jackpot Raiders is a 5 reel game that is 3 symbols high. The game has traditional paylines, using a total of 20, playing from left to right.
Valuable Symbols – The two most valuable symbols in the game are the two explorers. Of those two, it is the female explorer who offers the most per payline. 3 “Female Explorer” symbols are worth 3.5 times the bet, 4 are worth 12.5 times the bet and 5 are worth 200 times the bet.
Scatter Symbol – The “Compass” is the Scatter symbol, which is needed to trigger Free Spins and the Bonus game. Two anywhere on the reels will trigger the Bonus game; 3 will award you 10 Free Spins and a shot on the Bonus game, 4 will award you 10 Free Spins plus 1000 coins and a shot on the Bonus game, and 5 will award you with 10 Free Spins plus 10,000 coins and a shot on the Bonus game.
Maps – If you land a “Map” symbol anywhere on the reels then it will be added to the bottom of one of the reels, depending on its colour. If you collect 5 of a single colour of Map then you will be awarded 10 Free Spins and one Jackpot Gem will be added before they begin. Once the Free Spins are over, that set of Maps will reset to zero.
Free Spins – During the Free Spins all wins have a x3 multiplier added to them. You also have the chance to collect gems which will trigger one of the game’s Jackpots. Each jackpot has its own coloured gem and you need 5 of them in total to win the Jackpot. The prize available for each jackpot is displayed above each of the reels, along with the colour of gem needed to trigger it.
Bonus – The Bonus game is a click and reveal game. You can win cash prizes, anything between 20 and 80 coins, 10 Free Spins, 1 random coloured map or a shot at the “Treasure Hunt” Bonus game.
Treasure Hunt Bonus Game – If you trigger this Bonus then you will have a shot at trying to complete the 3 levels that the game has. Each level has 3 chests and each chest sits along a path that is either easy, moderate or difficult to get to. The hard the path to cross, the bigger the potential wins. However, if you fail to cross over to the chest the Bonus will end. There are also two Raiders for you to choose from. “Bear”, who is more likely to get across to the chest or “Sam” who is more likely to find big prizes if she can get there. Each chest can contain between 50-1800 coins, maps to trigger the Free Spins or Relics that can trigger the Sunken City Free Spins.
Sunken City Free Spins – If you can trigger the “Sunken City Free Spins” you will get 10 Free Spins, each win will have a x10 multiplier applied to it and each of the Jackpots will have a gem added to them before the Free Spins begin.
