Not a jazzy slot
Normally, we should jump for joy when a new jazz-themed slot is released. So rarely do we get to play one, or come across a bad one that excitement is virtually assured. That was until Merkur Gaming came along and ruined the genre with their Jazz Nights slot. If you are looking for a nifty Jazz themed slot, this isn’t one you’d recommend. Read our Jazz Nights slot review to find out why.
Where have Merkur failed?
Merkur Gaming have failed in several areas with their Jazz Nights slot machine. For a kick-off, the Jazz Night slot graphics are woefully bad. Crudely drawn, they could easy belong in a slot from 15-20 years ago. More to the point, the number of lines and wagering setup in the Jazz Nights slot game are off-putting, too.
Loser lines and sad stakes
There are just 10 paylines present in this slot. Not that you would, but if you wish to adjust them, you can only bet on 1, 3, 5, or 7 lines, instead of the default 10. Players can choose coin sizes which range from 0.01 up to 2.00 in total, and that will see you ending up wagering between $0.01 per line per spin and $20.00 per spin on the Jazz Night video slot. No, it isn’t very expensive, but neither is it very good.
Not exactly special features
Special is not the word we would use the describe the features in the Jazz Nights slot machine. In fact, special is about as far from the truth as you can get. Ordinarily is a good word to use, and even then, we’re being kind.
The leading lady acts as a wild symbol in this slot, and she can substitute for all standard paying icons in this slot machine, as well as deliver the non-progressive jackpot, which is worth just 10x your total bet.
Scatter icons can also deliver you the jackpot, as well a free games feature. You need to land at least 3 of them on the reels of the slot at any one time to trigger the feature. Scatters appear in the shape of the Jazz Nights logo.
The Jazz Night slot bonuses revolve around a free spins feature, and this free spins bonus can see you pocket a total of 10 free games. During this feature, the wild symbols become an expanding wild but that’s about all the goodies you are going to get.
A drab a dreary night out
To be perfectly frank, there is little jazzy about this slot at all. We’ve seen some real crackers over the years, but Merkur Gaming have failed to capture the essence of a jazz bar or the jazz scene entirely. This is a poorly-designed, iffy graphic, low-budget slot, and not one many of us will care to have a second run at.
