The significance of this slot might be lost a little in the UK where Ice Hockey is a firmly minority sport, but in nations like Canada and Russia where it attracts a big following, Czech superstar Jaromír Jágr is Hockey royalty.
A feature of the world’s biggest Hockey leagues and international competition since the early 1990s, Jaromír Jágr is regarded as one of the greatest of all time, so when you get the opportunity to play the game named after him, Jágr’s Super Slot, you sit up and listen. But is this slot a superstar, or is it past its prime? Let’s find out in our Jágr’s Super Slot review.
It probably goes without saying that Jágr’s Super Slot is all about ice hockey, but the sport really is everywhere in this slot: from the floodlit hockey rink and stadium in the background to the hockey gear that makes up the high value symbols. You’ll see helmets, sticks, pucks, skates and novelty foam hands. The lower value symbols are the standard 9 – A, but presented in a style that makes them look like the fonts used on TV sports shows. It’s a treat for hockey fans who can feel part of the action, and a well created theme for non-fans too.
This is a big slot with six reels and four rows, creating a solid 4096 ways to win, which means you can expect plenty of winning spins as you play. This also means that the prizes aren’t massive in this game, the highest being 25x your wager and many of them coming in at under 1x your bet, but it’s the frequency of the prizes that will help you win your money. There are also a handful of smaller bonus games that can all help build up your prize kitty, so there are plenty of options that will help you win big. The RTP is just a hair under average at 95.91%, so hitting those bonuses as much as possible is definitely an advantage.
One of the best bonuses in the game is the Jágr wild, which appears stacked and can take over any or all of the reels in the game, delivering a multiplier of 6x or 8x depending on the number of his jersey. This is a nice enough bonus to start with, but Jágr can show up at any time to deliver even more bonuses, his little animated avatar smashing pucks at the screen to turn different numbers of symbols into multiplier wilds or scatters. Land three of those scatters and you enter a free spins round of your choice, lover or fighter. Lover is the safest option, allowing you to play 20 free spins with multiplier wilds present on every spin, while fighter gives you three free spins during which extra free spin symbols or multiplier wilds will land. Every multiplier that lands will remain locked on screen until your spins are over, either filling the whole screen for the biggest prize or granting you a smaller but still significant reward.
The Jágr’s Super Slot slot game is a treat for hockey fans because of its ever present theme and celebrity endorsement, but thanks to its nifty little bonus round and generous wins it should be popular with every player. With so many chances to land generous wilds, you’ll be scoring high in no time!
